Default Inherited a couple copters and need help


I inherited 3 copters and I know NOTHING about them and I'm not interested in keeping them. I am however interested in knowing if they work so I can sell them. I tried looking at the manual for one of them to see if I can at least get the rotors to move, etc...and nothing. The battery is charged and the little blue light flashed inside one of them, but that's it.

Can anyone offer some recommendations as to where I might be able to go to see if they work? Would my local Hobbytown be able to check them out for me? I feel kind of weird walking in there and asking them to take time to check the copters and not offer to buy anything for their time

I'm trying to find any local RC clubs (in the Seattle area) to see if I can contact someone that way.

Thank you

see if you can find a local rc heli hobby shop near by. They are usually friendly enough to help.

What kind of flashing did you observe? Rapid flashing, or a set number of flashes? From what I remember, Blade helicopters flash rapidly when they need to bound to the radio. look in the manual on how to bind to the radio. A set number of flashes indicate a fault. I have at least one that seem to flash 4 times. I've narrowed it down to a faulty board.

Hope this helps a little.
