Obeying the law of gravity
Jeremy Kamutzki's Avatar
Any ideas why a blade mcx might brownout? I randomly lose the signal and it's starting to happen more often. I'm potty sure it's not the board that's cracked cause I can push on all corners of it and nothing happens. It randomly loses the signal when I'm flying and yesterday it would only get 1" off the ground before signal loss. I have rebound it to my dx6i with no luck, so im really not sure of the problem. I'm thinking I might try and trade the whole heli for some um airplane guts because I have some plans for a um cub.

Yep. Major relief from the little stock chargers.

That reminds me... I'm going to need a new charger soon, that $30 ECO6-10 is 1.5+ years old already! I think it's going to fail one of these days... But hey it's still working!

Why replace when it still works?

Sometimes I take that to extremes though. I won't replace things until they are mangled, barely work/move, or are threatening to explode.

No I'm not replacing it, I'll keep it for a while - but I know at some point I'm going to need a new one anyways

Been charging a 3s 2.2 for 80 minutes now, got 12.6v at 4.2v per cell. I wonder why it hasn't shut off yet...

It gradually reduces the current before it stops charging...

Was it balance charging? Sometimes a cell will be stubborn and will take a loong time to balance.
