So I think I possibly have a problem with my reciever.....Okay, so here is what I do:

I charge the battery (E-flite 3S 11.1V 3200mAh 15C) with the charger (E-flite 2-3 Cell Balancing Li-Po Charger) that the apprentice 15e came with.

When the battery is done I unplug it and go and plug it into my plane. I hear the 4 tones that come from the motor. Then when I look at the spektrum AR600 receiver the orange light isn't on? When I plug in and out the plug to the plane it kind of flickers, but then never turns on?

I then wait about 5 minutes and plug the battery in to the plane and everything works just fine. Light comes on, I hear all the tones when the transmitter is bound, and all ailerons, elevator, rudder, and motor work just fine. And I just flew my plane yesterday without any problems.

Here is what I think. It seems like the battery is charged too much when I plug it in, too much voltage going to the receiver because after the battery sits for a few minutes, I plug it back in, and everything works just fine. I'm going to charge it again and see what happens. What is your take on this???
