Where can I fly my Helix X4 Stunt?
Your Helix X4 Stunt is designed to be flown indoors. Due to the high performance of the Helix, the room you are in should have lots of space to fly with no breakable objects. Turn off any ceiling fans and stay away from any other air vents to ensure a successful flight.
We don’t recommend flying the Helix outdoors as it is a very finely tuned Stunt Quad Copter and the performance could potentially be affected by environmental conditions.
Follow these tips and you will be an expert pilot in no time!
How long should it take for my Helix X4 Stunt to take a charge?
Your Helix X4 Stunt will take around 40 to 60 minutes to charge. You will know when it is fully charged because the red and green lights on your controller will be on together, or the red light on the USB will go out.
Can I fly more than one Helix X4 Stunt at a time?
Your Helix X4 Stunt uses an ‘auto-pairing’ technology, meaning you can use multiple units together at any one time! Simply pair each Helix to the respective controller by following the pairing directions in the Manual!
How long will my Helix X4 Stunt fly for?
The average flight time for your Helix X4 stunt is around 5 to 7 minutes on a full charge. The flight time may vary depending on where you’re flying it, the type of batteries you are using, and how much throttle you give the helicopter!

How do I charge my Helix X4 Stunt using the controller?

What do the controller / Helix X4 Stunt lights mean?
Here are the different types of lights you may get on your remote control or Helix X4 Stunt and what they mean:
Helix X4 Stunt - Novice vs Expert Modes: The Differences
Your Helix X4 Stunt has 2 operational modes; Novice and Expert. You are able to switch between modes using the Power Switch at the top of the remote control.
Novice Mode (1 Arrow)
When your Helix X4 Stunt is in Novice Mode, the lights on the unit will be green. Just because you’re flying in Novice Mode, doesn’t mean you’re a beginner! Flying in Novice Mode is a great way to get to know your Helix and will give you a more complete and thorough understanding of the controls.
While stunts can be performed in Novice, we recommend perfecting the art of flight in this mode before switching to Expert Mode to perform stunts.
Expert Mode (2 Arrows)
When your Helix X4 Stunt is in Expert Mode, the lights on the Copter will be red. Expert Mode is for the experienced pilot who is looking to perform high-octane stunts and explore the full capabilities of the Helix X4 Stunt! You will find that your Helix responds to your commands to a greater degree, allowing you to recover from stunts with ease.
Flying in Expert Mode allows you to achieve the maximum amount of control possible with your Helix X4 Stunt.
How do I perform stunts with my Helix X4 Stunt?
The Helix X4 Stunt has 3 different stunts you are able to perform at the simple touch of a button. On the lower right side of the front of the controller, you will see a large red button and above that, a red switch. These are your stunt controls. The red switch selects which stunt you will be performing, and the large red button activates this stunt.
The stunts are as follows:
