Do you have your blades on correctly? Head spins clockwise, Thin side of the blade is the trailing edge.

unplug the motors.
power up the transmitter and helicopter.
move the left stick to full throttle.
level the flybar and ensure that the blades are straight in relation to the axis of the grips.
How much pitch do your rotor blades have now?

Is it New, or did you rebuild it?

Some of the photos in the manual show components backwards in the exploded view. The ball on the blade grips go to the trailing edge of the blade. For higher pitch, the servos move DOWN and the trailing edge is moved down, creating a positive angle of attack on the blades.

check your swashplate make sure it did not seperate. i changed mine to the cnc and it wouldn't hover just spin. i knotice that mine was seperated so i bent the inside so it will hold.
