Update: My suspicions were correct, it was indeed the charger plug that was defective. Read on below to see how I was able to fix the problem.
My son got an early Christmas gift from his grandmother, which was a Dream Machine: Eagle Blade. Its one of those China made R/C helicopters that you see in the mall as well as for sale in Alibaba. I’ve always wanted one but never got to buying one because of its steep price (around $80). I’m very thankful that I didn’t plunk down any cash for this as things didn’t really go as planned in terms of enjoying this toy. This toy is recommended for kids 8 years or older, but as with any RC toy, check first if your kid has the proper dexterity and fine-motor skills to control an RC toy.
