Troubleshooting Guide
In case of difficulty, please refer to this Guide before returning the Helicopter to us. Please note the Manufacturer Silverlit is not responsible for Crash Damage that may occur during the operation of your Silverlit Helicopter.

Helicopter will not charge, or poor duration.
Discharge the Flight Battery by operating until the Rotors almost stop, and recharge until the Green Light on the Charger goes out. Continue to fully discharge and recharge as necessary, to progressively improve the performance and duration. Never leave the Helicopter in a fully discharged state, after use.

Helicopter rotates after take off.
Stab the appropriate Trim Control on the Transmitter repeatedly, rather than pressing and holding. If the Helicopter spins faster, you are stabbing the wrong button!...

Helicopter continues to spin or becomes uncontrollable after performing satisfactorily
Examine the Motor Shaft of the tiny Tail Rotor Motor for Carpet Fibres, or Hair wrapped around the Shaft. Remove this carefully using a Pin or similar. Do not attempt to remove the Tail Rotor unless absolutely necessary.

Broken Tail Rotor
A spare Tail Rotor has been included with your Picoo Z. It is most important that the original Tail Rotor is removed with extreme care to avoid damaging the tiny Motor, to prevent any possibility of pulling the delicate Shaft out of the Motor, or detaching the fine Electrical Connections.

Rechargeable Batteries
Rechargeable Batteries are unsuitable for use in the Picoo Z Transmitter, as their lower Nominal Voltage is likely to affect the Intelligent Charger. Only use good quality Alkaline Batteries. A fresh set of six Duracell AA Batteries will provide up to 25 Charges.

Allow sufficient space whilst learning.
The tiny Picoo Z Micro Helicopter is the smallest and lightest miniature Infra Red Controlled Helicopter in the World, and will reward you with many exhilarating flights with careful operation. Be sure to allow enough space around you whilst learning, even though this may be operated in the smallest of spaces with practice.

Picoo Z will fly Indoors or Outside
The inexpensive Picoo Z Micro Helicopter is remarkably robust, made of tough Expanded Polypropylene Foam, features a brilliant Blue LED Strobe Light allowing fantastic flights in the dark, and incorporates an Auto Stability System to make this easy to operate both Indoors and Outside in dead calm conditions. Treat it with respect, and do not attempt to fly it outside in windy conditions or bright sunshine, as this will adversely affect its operation.

Picoo Z Replacement Rotors
One Spare Tail Rotor is supplied in the Gift Box with each Picoo Z Helicopter when purchased. Further Replacement Picoo Z Tail Rotors are available @ £2.99 for 3pcs. Replacement Picoo Z Main Rotor Assemblies are also available @ £4.99 each. It is not necessary to dismantle the Picoo Z Helicopter to fit a Replacement Main Rotor Assembly, and you should find that the Plastic Rotor Head can be removed from the Metal Drive Shaft by twisting this by hand, whilst gripping the Shaft with a pair of Pliers. Care should be taken to ensure that the Main Shaft is not withdrawn from the Helicopter Body when removing the Damaged Rotors. The use of a pair of Long Nose Pliers is recommended to grip the Shaft during removal, and also during replacement as the new Rotor Head is pushed on.
Wonderland Models will not accept liability for any damage that may occur, and suggest Main Rotors should be repaired with Clear Self-Adhesive Tape, whenever possible.
