Air Hogs brings back their 4ch helicopter, the Helix 360, this time redesigned and renamed Axis 400X. The Helix 360 is my favorite toy-grade helicopter, so I’m very excited to see them bring it back out as the Axis 400X. 🙂

John Wedrall says:

nice review, my favorite color too


mike collins says:

Hi again! I managed to crash my 400x (again) and now when I take off it darts to the left.
I checked all the obvious and can’t find anything wrong. Tried the trim both ways and no change. Any tips. BTW…Your videos are extremely informative. Thank You!

Stephen Vieira says:

I bought a broken helix 360 online and removed the charging cable from the transmitter and made my own usb charging cable out of it back when I first owned one. I have since sold it but this video has made me want to purchase another used one off eBay if I can find a good deal on one. As you, I also learned 4 channel flying with it. Thanks for the review!

panic mike says:

Nice heli. Wish they make the next one 2.4ghz

sean stevens says:

This can, if you crash it hard enough, have its cyclic control stuck on full right, or full back (or, less likely, full forward or full left).
The cyclic is not a proper swash plate but two U shaped bars operated by servos that alter the angle of the rotor disc by acting on a larger cylindrical drum that moves the rotor blades and flybar.
With big impacts, those U shaped bars can end up with one upright portion of the U stuck *inside* the ‘sleeve’ on the rotor assembly that they use to alter rotor angle. When this happens, the rotor will bind and ‘click’ over as you spin it. The heli will also fly full[whatever angle it’s stuck on] after you take off. Don’t panic, read on.

To fix, disassemble the shell with an eyeglasses screwdriver, pry apart, and pry the upright ‘leg’ of the U outside of the rotor cyclic ‘drum’, then check for free rotation of the rotor without binding. Make sure it is still located on the peg protruding from the servo. Unsticking it from the drum can also have it popped off its servo peg/dowel.

I have crashed this now so many times in 5 days [first rc helo ever, let alone 4 channel… that was maybe a bad idea] that i’ve removed the screws from the canopy shell so i can fix this condition quickly and just …. not bothered to put the screws back in. The canopy deforms easily enough to make this a 1 minute fix.

Malone Teebs says:

Would be cool if they made a helicopter landing pad that charged the copter just by landing on it. kinda like those wireless cell phone chargers. and also have a red and green l.e.d. to indicate when its done charging it.

Leonkiller2569 says:

mark sommer says:

the old helix 360 flew better. i was disappointed in the 400’s handling. cant recommend it over 30 bucks

jeffrey lee says:

The web site is too poor for the description!! No specification! How people want to know about it? The your web is just for people to see and know nothing!!

MarquisDeSang says:

I had the first generation 4 channel air hogs heli and it was better than hobby grade rc of same scale (size).

Detectingthe North says:

I don’t understand why you cannot use it outdoors?  What does infrared have to do with flying it outside? Txs.

John Alvin Maneja says:

sir how much did you sale your rc hellicopter???

mike collins says:

Ryan…this is my first helicopter. Never flew one before and I love it. Yeah, I crashed it a lot but it really is pretty easy to fly. You are so right about trying to fly it outside. It doesn’t. thanks for the great video.

Mario Sigala says:

Sad to see Air Hogs (now Spin Masters) get out of the helicopter business. It’s all drones now. Sigh.
