Welcome to RCG.
After reading the abbreviated instructons on page 5, I suspect that
the flashing red light and beeper indicates the battery is at less than 2.7 volts.
"When a Li Po battery voltage is under 2.7v, the charger will not continue to charge the Li Po battery for it is over discharged." Page 5.

Did you resolve the issue?

Just purchased a Sky Climber an have the same issue you describe - I noted that the battery is close to 12v out of the box - perhaps that is the issue

i actually havent even plugged the batteries in yet. I just plug my 15V adapter into the balance charger and I am getting the flashing RED with beeping sound.

sound like the balance charger is receiving incorrect power input?

mine is working ... i was using a noname 12 dc power supply that was actually putting out in excess of 15V. when I switched to a 12v battery all was well.

I'm guessing that you will have to hook-up the battery for it to play nice

My rule:
1. Battery connects to the charger, then
2. Charger connects to the power supply.
In that order.
