J'trooper, first you have to determine if you get power output from the battery like before..
if the motors run and sound like they did when you first got it, and they run for 10min. or so on the bench..
(then it is probably charging ok)
At this point the 1st thing I check is to see that the motors did not come loose, (they are mounted w/double sided tape) if they vibrate or are loose in any way glue them w/cyano.
The next thing is the props, they come loose also (glue them w/drop of cyano also.
That should get your power back and the plane should be flying again.
If your initial problem was a charging problem, then you have to figure out if it is the lipo batt. or the charger that is giving you a prob...
Hope this helps man..
Ps: you could have deeper problems happening, but those are the most common basics, and lubricating the motor shafts helps a lot too...

Easy PicooZ/Havoc Wobble Fix

This wobble fix is in the PicooZ Toolbox but I wanted to post it here separately since it fixed my Havoc Apache wobble issue (and it had a severe wobble). All it takes is to put small bends in the flybar/rotor connecting rods with a pair of needlenose pliers. No fancy bearings or rotor twisting needed. I was skeptical but now the wobble is gone and I can steer my Apache around much more easily! I had almost given up hope until I found this. This is the best thing since throttle spring removal and I encourage anybody with a wobbly Havoc or PZ to try it. Many, many thanks to LLFly for posting this.

Has anyone thought about converting an older Silverlit/Air Hog with the Silverlit 2.4G Peregrine Eye's equipment? Or is there an aftermarket?

Micro Stik Lights,

did this How to, then saw the Sticky here. I don't know how to (or even if I can) move the thread, so here's the link.
