Help!
Super CP flies for less than a minute per charge

Guys,

I am having very short flight duration times with my Super CP. I just replaced the main board and heli flies fine except the flight duration. I have tried several batteries and have ruled them out. Any help would be greatful.

Check the plug of main motor, all the leads and the mesh of main gear pinion.

Did you have short flight times with your previous main board?

Tell us a little more.

Motor might be bad/ Use Genius main gear/ use WK 350ma battery used for Y-6 Scorpion. Or your charger is not right. Batteries might have been run low. Bad batteries will show charge but guess what ? Fights become very short.

I don't think batteries are the problem since I have 12 of them 8 of them all brand new.

I've also converted to brushless.... and the flying time is shorter than with brushed. But both were terrible for flight time duration.

Are you using the Genius CP main gear or the Super CP main gear?
Is your brushless motor the C05M motor?
How many teeth are in your pinion gear?

Bet you have a bad charger ? Are you using cheap batteries ? WK 350 25c work fine for me and my Mini is bl. 4 minutes + easy. If you buy el cheapo 240ma's from Bang good/ T-mart good luck. Genius main gear 7t pinion should help. Trying to help but details as usual are lacking.
