But if another known good battery gave you the same result, then it would more likely be the motor, because a failing motor could have an exceptional draw on the battery.
Yes, and I know my Hyp's are good...all 6 of them check out fine on my computer charger. Anyway, just about finished installing the the original stocker. Will take it for a check ride and advise. Thanks for replies !

Well cool...it was my XTREME SR120 motor and not batts or board !
Now, do I order another from TMKARCHOBBY...hmmm. They are smoother, quieter, and IMO more powerful.
Read here a few mos. ago though that some either had quick failures or limited power. Or maybe I got lucky with the one I bought last Feb.

Found a fellow that repairs 5in1 boards for $25

FYI

I saw him months ago on eBay, but he stopped "advertising there" He does just about any of the Blade boards. He just repaired my 120 board and it works fine. It was driving one of the servos to full stop at power on. Here is his contact info if you are interested. "jason.b.snider@gmail.com"

Time to go flying, Fred

I thought that name sounded familiar for some reason. Ha, I just bought a MCP X V2 from him not an hour ago. Then I see this post, small internet, lol. The sale originated on Ebay, don't even know if he is a member on here or not.

Ok, so I saw this video on YouTube. Kid says he is "trying out" his Christmas present. ( I don't get that concept, but that's another topic, lol".) Anyway, as you can see he says
"I have never flown a heli before this one and have no simulator experience. The 120 SR is ideal for beginners - it is extremely stable - but is also quick and agile. I look forward to developing flying skills with this aircraft."

I found this to be both discouraging and unbelievable. The first time I flew my MCPX 2 It was all over the place, and I had a bit of Sim experience first. He is flying the 120 SR in a very small place and, well it just seems impossible to pick it up so quickly, either that or he is a prodigy. Hmmmm. Anyway, after seeing this I grabbed my 120 SR and flew it in my basement family room. 22 x 22, didnt crash once, which I was very happy with.

If you have ideal eye/hand coordination, it's a plus in R/C. My 17-year-old son took his gas airplane with no sim experience and flew the sucker by himself to the great amazement of all the "mature" guys at the club. They all agreed that those who play a lot of games can do R/C with a headstart on it all. I, personally, struggled for months with trying to get my doggone thumbs to go left when want left and forward when I want up! Only now after 2 years can I use aileron to gracefully bank a turn on my SR 120 and I still crash the doggone thing.

As you say, it is impossible to pick it up so quickly without any experience at all. He must have had experience.
The first time he brought it not the air he would have no idea at all where that heli would go or what its flying characteristics were - it would have been broken for certain. The fact also that he's catching it in flight is a good indicator that he has done this before.

Once you have experience it can be flown in a cupboard if anyone would want to do that.

IMHO, that vid was staged. That was a very experienced 120SR pilot on the sticks. The crashes were staged. Did anybody catch the credits at the end??? Oh Lord, someone gag me with a spoon. Worst "commercial" I've ever seen

Mike.

Same here, but even less wind! Which is a rarity around here. I flew my 120 SR outside too, and then even my MCX-2, which can handle NO wind, lol. Just a beautiful day, and two more coming up even nicer, if you believe the weathergirl. I may even take my boats out tomorrow along with my heli, one more run of the boats. Next year I hope to get some video of me flying one of my heli's along side one of my FE boats, that would look pretty cool.

I understated the wind speed. It's also gusty and its not even slowing down much at dusk. I need a big warehouse.
