The mini axe 100 fp. I got it today and tried charging the lipos with the usp charger it comes with but the led stays solid and in the manual it says it should blink while charging. Only thingni can think of is theres an error. The manaul says if the light is solid its either charged or theyres an error but when i try to fly the heli it flys for a few seconds and it stops working so im assuming the lipos are low and the charger isnt charging

Stock battery only last a couple minutes...way too short for any flying. I suggest you modify it like how I did it.

I'm using a charger that came with my Axe 100 CP. It could go up to 0.7A and it beeps when charging is done.

If you plan on flying bigger helis later it's better to get a computerized charger and use one of these plug adapters for your micro batteries.

When you do the mod you don't need the old style plug anymore. Look on your heli there should be a cable with a connector that you can unplug from the board. You use that connector to plug into the new style battery. Take off the canopy and you'll see the connector. It will look like this.

That's all you get per battery so buy several since they're cheap. I have four batteries and can fly for a long time only takes a few seconds to swap batteries. These batteries can also be charged with various USB chargers so I could charge my batteries "in the field" with a larger Lipo battery pack.
