Umx beast batt fail....

I just bought my new Eflight UMX Beast, brought it home and set up all the radio adjustments as per the book. made sure everything works, inc the motor for about 30 secs then proceeded to charge the small lipo 2s 120mAh batt that came with it using the inc charger. its been on charge now for about 4 hours and is still blinking red (still charging). anyone else had this problem? Faulty batt out of the box maybe?

Or perhaps you over-discharged / damaged it by using it before charging it. Lipolys come approx. 40 to 60% charged and must be fully charged before being used.

The UMX Beast looks to be a nice plane. Congrats on your purchase.

Have you checked the Lipo's voltage? It might be a good starting point to see what's happening with your battery.

You should also not static test for that long. You probably sucked the lipo down too far, and it's not charging.
