Default Blade cx2 problem

When I fly the helicopter it will eventually lose signal to controler, drop to the floor, and start spinning and bouncing up and down. I have no clue what is going on and how to fix it.

Well, first welcome to WF. You don't give us much to go on. Are you flying it far away? That tx doesn't have much range. Are the batteries in the tx good? I also suspect if it's really losing signal, it would just stop, rather than flopping around. You could try removing the blades, then powering the tx and heli up, get the rotors turning with the throttle, then turn off the tx and see what it does. The spinning around part makes me wonder if one of the motor connections might be bad. Does it only spin one way?

You've got a reciever/servo issue.......most likely resulting from a crash.

You can check for disconnects......(magnifying glass recommened)......Otherwise, really not worth putting any money/time into for fix.....no longer sold and parts are limited.

Time to move up to a Blade fixed or collective mini/micro..........

It works a while then starts spinning? Check the motor that runs the rotor that spins left. (Sounds like a tongue twister!) Could be a bad connection, maybe the motor is wearing out, or needs lubrication. Have you checked if the motors get really hot? I got a heat sink for mine.
