    Sounds like the battery is taking a charge but not holding it? Do you have another battery to test with?

    Darken it a bit, then maybe increase the contrast a little? Looks a bit washed out at the moment.

    I was sitting here this evening reflecting on my time in The Marine Corps and friends I lost touch with. The first guy that came to mind was Phil Pflueger. We were both stationed on Okinawa together in '87.after doing a Google search I was terribly saddened to hear of his passing. He was a fantastic Marine and a wonderful friend back then. It's good knowing he was a legend in the RC Tank community and to know he was doing something he loved as a career. Upset at myself for not searching for him in the Internet age earlier. I was glad to call him friend.
