Default Air Hogs Reflex Charge Time?

I just boght a Air Hogs Reflex and I read the the instructions and they said that when the Flashing red light goes off its done charging, it never gave me and exact time something around the time it takes to charge.
An hour later its still flashing. I need a straight answer, how long does it take to charge?

Hey babpadeple, it sounds like your running out of patients my friend. Depending on the type of battery you have, it can take up to 8 hours to charge fully. Especially the first charge from out of the box. Have patients, you want everything to perform correctly. Just leave it up on the charge, I know your excited and ready to fly. But with these RC's you have to do everything correctly to prevent crashes. To get an accurate estimate on the charge time, time it yourself. That's what I had to do for my heli's, mine charge up in about 2 hours, My Raptor charges up in for hours.

it also depends on the type of battery charger you are using some chargers charge at a higher mah rate like my one charger is 0.8a and my new charger charges at 1.5a charging my battery the same but in half the time. it all depends on the amps!
