New Aurora 9, not holding charge
I just received my new Aurora 9 from Tower Hobbies last week. Having issues with the battery staying charged. After fully charging (using supplied battery and charger) overnight to 8.4 volts and trying to program unit, it fully discharges in about 20 minutes.
Charger LED goes from bright red to "dim" red 8-10 hrs later.
Tried recharging several cycles, but it still happens. You can actually watch the screen meter going down in voltage. Can't risk using radio like this.
Either bad drain or bad battery pack? I'll have to contact Tower Hobbies, just thought Vendor may comment if monitoring this forum.
