Thanks..... I'll try that. I forgot to add that I did remove the bind cable before turning them back on.
OK, good. I mentioned it cause I have forgotten to do so...LOL. Turn the thing on and Im like "why is the LED blinking again?" Duh, forgot to remove the bind plug!
As with any RC parts that are mass produced at low cost, there will be bad ones. Ive had redcat radios that lasted forever...and Ive had one be dead right out of the box. Redcat replaced it naturally.
The redcat radio is the same as the flysky. And hobbyking sells it under the turnigy name....and exceed has another name for it as well. So a crap load of these are made and sold. The upside is that they are cheap. I mean, there are still AM radios out there that cost twice what a flysky radio costs!. Downside is sometimies they dont last long.
But its the same with lipo packs. I know some people who will only buy name brand, $80-$100+ lipo packs. I can buy 4 skylipo brand packs for the cost of 1 brand name. So if 1 out of the 4 dies after only a few months...but the other 3 last a year or more...Im fine with that. And thats exactly what I find happens. I have owned probly 10 skylipo packs. 3 died after a couple of months (a short or break inside the pack so that both cells were no longer connected to the output) and the others are still going strong. And more than a few times I have run them below 2.9v and brought them back to life.
I remember when I paid $50 for a "decent" nimh battery. Not race quality, but better than most. Now I pay less than $30 for a 2s 5000mah lipo that lasts much longer and puts out way more power. Stuff has come a long way in just a few years.
