Default Newbie with a questions

I just picked up a used Double Horse 9101 form a guy that had it for sale locally. I tried it out last night and was able to hover and get about 6 feet off the ground. Not bad for my first time ever using one of these heli's. Battery died so I charged it (or so I thought) and tried it again. Can't get it off the ground and when it tries it just about tips over. What did I do? If this thing is broke my wife is gonna kill me. I only paid $25 for it.

Guy I bought it from said it was only flown once and only about a foot off the ground. I didn't get a manual with it so I can't go there. I am just going off youtube vids for the trim settings but haven't found the exact controller in the videos.

When it is fully charged does the "charge" light come on? When I unhooked the battery from the charger the light came on but never came on when hooked up. It was plugged in for an hour or so.

Can someone help me out here?

I'm not familiar with that model and its charger, and I'm noob, but all the half-dozen chargers I have the red light either goes OUT or changes to green when the battery is fully charged. If the battery is fully charged when connected, the charger light just stays unlit. It sounds like you may need to check all linkages, maybe level the swash, and be sure to launch from a level place.

Then come back here and get some good advice from the experienced players.

Well, I got the charger part figured out. I wasn't letting it charge long enough. I haven't been able to get back out with it to try it out (weather and work) but plan on another try soon. I am going to put the training kit back on it the guy had for it and try again.
