Replace a rotor on a toy helicopter easily with this simple step by step guide. Manufacturers of remote controlled mini helicopters build the helicopters with durability in mind, enabling use of the helicopters by flyers of all ages. No matter how durable the helicopter may be, however, mishaps will occur. Over time, damage may occur to the main rotor of the helicopter, bending it out of shape or breaking it entirely. When this happens, you can replace the damaged rotor with a new one, making the helicopter useful again.
Hold the rotor shaft securely beneath the rotor blade with a pair of needle nosed pliers.
Release the shaft with the pliers and test the rotor blade by turning it in place. Examine the shaft during the test to make sure the shaft turns along with the turning blade and that the blade is not turning around the stationary shaft. If the rotor is loose and turns around the shaft, remove the rotor and place a small amount of CA glue on the top of the shaft. Replace the rotor and wait for the glue to dry according to the drying times recommended by the glue manufacturer. Repeat the test on the glued-on rotor blade.
