SOURCE: my john lewis mini helicopter auto stability control not flying

I had a similar problem with mine, check if the central shaft on which the blades turn hasn't become lose and is no longer engaging the gears on the underside of the helicopter.

If the whole shaft can move up and down then this probably means it has come loose, you can solve this by squeezing the lower set of blades towards the bottom gear with your fingers. You should feel the bottom blades move slightly down, if you push them too far they will stick against the main body so you might need to pull them up slightly.

Testimonial: "thanks very much, you are absolutely right about the problem. i had difficulty moving the blades so put some clingfilm (!) in the gap on the shaft."

SOURCE: Hi, i have a Modensa

Ok with cots and stuff like that the supplier has to by law make spare parts available for 2 years after the product has been discontinued. I would seriously get back on the phone to them and state the law and see if they budge. I dont know how old the cot is but hopefully it is not that old.

Also you may find that the fittings you need are standard and even used in more modern cots. Have another go at them and see where you can get.

As a last resort maybe get some advice from a local nursery supplier and see if they can help.

Sorry I cant be of more assistance but this is what I have had to do in the past

I have a second hand Cosatto Norma cot BS1753:1987 & I cant attach the drop down side as we dont have the catches or screws. Cosatto have emailed me saying that they dont have any information on this...

I have a NORMA Cosatto cotbed, and have had it since 1993 when my daughter was born. But it was not new then when my mother bought it. I have all the fixings and screws, but one is broken. I do have a copy of the instructions for the cot but
I can't seem to attach the scanned copy of the instructions, but will try to photograph it and attach it to a second posting to see if it is the same cot.
I have considered selling it in the past, now that it has gone around the family, but had hoped to get a replacement screw before selling, but got the same response from Cosatto.
