Check your blades again. Is everything else working ok? make sure the inner and out rotor shafts are not slipping.

Stupid reply .... But did you make sure correct blades for top set and bottom set ? They are opposite pitch form to each other.

What brand name & model helicopter do you have. That helps us help you by knowing what model you have. After a crash lots of things can get out of place that can cause the helicopter to not perform as it should.

I bought my grandson a little E-flite MCX. After one of many crashes he could not get it to lift. Turns out one of the motors had slip in the motor mount and caused the motor not to mesh with the top set of rotor blades. No lift and it spun wildly.

Helicopters have many things that will cause them to fail. Check that the top and bottom rotor blades are going in the correct direction. Be sure that there is not dirty or hair in the gears or around the motor shafts.

There is so many things to look at it would take lots of space to type it all in. Give your helicopter a good check an see if anything is broken like maybe one of the links to the swash plate.

Good luck with you efforts. Hope you find the problem.
