I'm finding that out now. I flew with it yesterday and today in addition to leaving it on for many hours on end. Still going strong on the original battery. Haven't messed with the new one yet because I wanted to get a couple of cycles on it to see if it charges more fully and shuts the charge indicator light off, per the HH rep I talked to on Sunday.

So you got your new battery cause you call HH to complain about the one you had, they sent you a new one and your still using the old one.

Looks like the price for that battery won't be coming down anytime soon.

They told me NOT to send it back. Horizon has a policy of NOT accepting lipos in the mail from customers. He told me to keep it as a backup. I called because the battery was NOT performing as advertised. It never charged above 8.2V and the charge light never went out after 72+ straight hours of charging. He offered a replacement before I could even got to the point of asking for one.

Want it in official writing? Look in their on-line service form. Third page, third item under "terms and conditions". It says DO NOT ship lipos back. They even make you sign that you have read and understand the "terms and conditions". The HH rep flat out told me to keep it as a back up. Got it?

I've been following this thread with interest and his negative attacks on people (ie Andy) who are trying to help is very destructive. With an attitude like that he wouldn’t last five minutes over our flying field before being dragged away by the struff of his neck.
As a forum Moderator myself constructive criticism is fine however constant negative comments within the thread or on individuals is not tolerated and results in a lifetime ban.

Admin/ Moderators please take note of this post.

I looked at that list. I broke no such rules. Your misguided interpretation is solely your own. Telling someone who is responsible for this update (and specifically claimed that this radio is "his baby") that people are having real problems with to get back in here and address it is not an "attack", no matter what you think.

My 'misguided interpretation' of what? I merely gave a member some general advice on reporting posts.

I've removed your name so, hopefully, it appears more general.

Doesn't matter. The exact same post with name is still two posts up but, hey, why don't you guys knock it off. At least my stuff, even if you didn't "like it" was actually on topic.
