How long should it take for my Megabomb to charge?
Your Megabomb will take around 30-45 minutes to charge. You will know when the helicopter is fully charged because the red and green lights on your controller will be on together!
Where can I fly my Megabomb?
Your Megabomb is designed to be flown indoors only, so do not fly it outside! The room you are in should have lots of space to fly with no breakable objects. Try to avoid direct sunlight or other IR (infrared) devices. The IR signal between the controller and the heli will not work well near sunlight so you may lose connection and crash.
It’s also a really small helicopter - it doesn’t take much to knock the little guy off course! Turn off any ceiling fans and stay away from any other air vents.
Follow these tips and you will be an expert pilot in no time!
Can I fly more than one Megabomb at a time?
You can fly 2 Megabomb helicopters together at a time; just make sure you have 2 helicopters in 2 separate frequencies - either A, or B.
The frequency will be printed on the front of the box in the lower right hand corner, or on the underside of the helicopter.
How far can my Megabomb fly?
The signal is good for around 20-30 feet. This should be plenty of distance for most indoor areas you will be flying your Megabomb!
How long will my Megabomb fly for?
The average flight time for your Megabomb Helicopter is around 4 to 5 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 load the missiles into the bomb and attach the bomb to my helicopter?
Firstly, place the missiles into the closed bomb by sliding them down into their housing. Each missile will have ridges on either side running the length of the missile - ensure these ridges are lined up with the corresponding sections on the bomb itself and slide the thinner end of the missile into the bomb. When the missiles are pushed down, you should here a click which lets you know the missiles are safely secured within the bomb.
Align the connection tab on the top of the bomb to the connection tab on the underside of the helicopter, pushing until you here a click.
How do I drop the bomb from my Megabomb helicopter?
To drop the bomb from your Megabomb helicopter, first make sure it is correctly attached with the missiles in place. Start flying the helicopter by gently increasing the throttle stick on the remote control and when you are ready to drop the bomb, flip open the button guard for the bomb release button and press the big red button!
