Blade MCX2 barely lifts and wont shut off

Hey folks, I was wondering if anyone has come across this problem with their MCX2? It was working fine last July on vacation and I brought it home and didn't fly it for a while because I am more into Phoenix sim, EXI 450 and HK 250 now.

The other day it was too windy and rainy outside to fly my larger Heli's so I got it out charged its batteries and get ready to take off. The motor spins up the Heli lifts falls over on its side and won't shut down until I pull the battery.

I don't know what it could be unless it needs a new 5 in 1 control unit. Any clues?

I think you'll get a better response going here:

If you start a new thread on a subject that already has a thread, most people won't pick up on it. They go to the same threads all the time and don't try to wade through all the rest to find something they're interested in.
If it doesn't shut off when you kill the throttle, it sounds as if it isn't communicating as it should be. Check the transmitter batteries.

My TX battery is good. My DX 7 and the stock radio get the same results.

It was the battery. The hobby shop said those tiny lipos last about 1 year. Problem solved.
