Did you fly the Dragonfly before charging it for the first time? If you have flown it before until the lipo is completely depleted maybe it is irreversible lost. Sounds quite strange that it doesn't charge in a whole hour.Greetings
Does anyone have the same problem when charging the dragonfly? im charging it for a while (about an hour or more) and the lights from the dragonfly's eyes still blinks. A friend of mine has one and he only charged it for 20 minutes at most. The manual also says that it should turn off when its fully charged and need to replace the batteries if charging takes longer time. i just changed it with new batteries and still does same thing.
That's the symptom of dead batteries in the controller all right. Did you try flying it after ~30 minutes on charging? Strange that fresh batteries didn't solve it
hy guys, i have the same problme, my dragonfly doesn't charge, i have bought it today but when i attach the dragonfly to the pad the led light on for 2 sec then turn off and the battery are new...PLASE HELP ME!!!
And when you turn the Dragonfly on then, do the eyes immediately fade out? If you just bought it and it's eyes won't light up, I'd say it is defective and should be returned to the store...
On the other hand, they ship fully charged, so if you haven't actually run it down yet, it may just still be fully charged!
no when turn on the dragonfly eye pulsing but i don't hear the noise of engine....i am italian and it is difficult to me sendback the toy in uk...pls, some solutions, thx
Ok, when you turn on the Dragonfly, its eyes will flash, until you turn on the transmitter and push the throttle twice. At that point the LED on the transmitter is on steady (solid) and the Dragonfly eyes should be on steady also.
The wings should flap in response to pushing the left stick, and the tail rotor should spin in response to pushing the right stick.
nothing, i turn on the trasmitter but nothing change, the eye pulse and the led on the pad doesn'r turn on ...i don't understand why...
Double check that all your batteries in the transmitter are in the correct way; if they are new and inserted correctly, the LED on the transmitter should light up. If not, you'll need a replacement transmitter :(
Unless you want to try to open up your transmitter and find the problem yourself? (I don't recommend this- the control sticks seem to be glued into place. I didn't want to break mine, so I stopped trying to take it apart)
I had this problem...sort of... but it was my fault. When I got mine the first thing I did was charge it (well I thought I did). Since it came with some charge I assumed I had charged it as it flew. Once it went flat, I charged it again until the lights went off... but it didn't work. What I missed was the note in the manual saying the DF should be in the OFF position for charging...DOH. The first two times I thought I was charging I wasn't (the eyes were blinking not pulsing). First time I didn't wait for eyes to got out as went over 25mins. 2nd time eyes went out after blinking for a while - probably because it was flat! Anyway ...Turn the bug off to charge, eyes will pulse very slowly if charging (not blink).
Moral of the story - Read the manual! ....nah buggar that!
That´s a very common problem. When I got my digital camera I started to use it right away and later noticed from the manual that the charging should have been done first. Years ago when I got my first mobile phone my father wanted to study it and he started to take off the cap of the antenna and I was "What are you doing !?!". He thought the antenna is hidden and tried to get it out. Later from the manual I red "Avoid touching antenna". That´s a nice feeling when you buy something new and somebody tries to spoil your pleasure, LoL.

Hi, I'm from Poland, I've bought my dragonfly on the net, it came new. I've read the manual and did as it says. Bateries in the remote are ok and placed correctly. the green led on the remote blinks after puting on the switch, yet the dragonfly doesn't respond (after setting it ON) ... After puting it to charger the eyes leds doesn't lite, blink or anything else, there isn't any respond to the rc unit. So i've decided to check if every thing is ok on the transmiter and the dragonfly and i've unmont both. The li-pol batery on the reciver is only 2,5V after 20 minutes of charging, all the connections and cabels on the transmiter and reciver plate looks ok. what could be the problem? pleas help
I have the same issue. Mine doesn't seem to take a charge. Is there a battery that can be replaced in the Dragonfly itself?
I have the same problem mine will not work! help please! :(
i have 2 dragonflys - 2 years sitting in a closet. 1 used and the other still in box. neither will charge. switched controllers and new batteries. can anyone confirm that the internal lithos are finished. anyway to change them out??
I have a Dragonfly that refuses to charge also, no matter how good the batteries are, i only used it once & now it is dead, i would expect wowwee to replace the battery but i they wont, I refuse to buy anymore wowwee products for my kids or grandkicks until wowwee repair my dragonfly, i recommend everybody boycott wowwee until these issues with their cheap toys are resolved, loads of customers all over the internet are complaining about the charging problems on the whole range of their toys, i wish i had enough money to take them to court for causing so much misery to kids, parents & granparents all over the world !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
hey guys i bought the dragonfly today and i put new batteries in the cotroller but the eyes of the dragonfly wont even blink..does anybody know whats the deal with this problem?
new,in box. bats good, pins good ,5.4 volts to pins on body,wowwee wont help. cut away most of body, and will charge directly to battery , does any one know actual batt. voltage
green dgagginflywouldent work last posted. now does, cut away all body, checked switch pins center poin showed floating voltage like capacater. all others but 1 shoed 3.7 volts after direct charge to battery.used small screwdriver to put pressure on pins and led lit. might have shorted 2 , might have corrected bad solder joint or by crossing may have charged dead capacater, dont know which but all is well
I want to know that how long is it happened? Can you fly it completely before any time? This is very important to know for me. Although, this is not a serious matter.
