Default Hitec Flash 4X, transmitter battery

Hi,

I have a Hitec Flash 4X and have been using it for several years. The one thing I have been unhappy about is the length of time my transmitter battery keeps a charge. It never lasted very long, but now it lasts only enough for about 2 ten minute flights. Is this usual? I recently bought a new battery for it, but that did not help. This leads me to believe there is a problem with the transmitter itself. Everything else seems to work just fine, but the battery does not give me much time to fly. Help and suggestions are much appreciated.

If you or a friend has a battery cycler, test the batteries to make sure they are holding a proper charge. If they are, the transmitter might need to be calibrated, in which case you will need to send it in for service.

Thanks for the info. I have two followup questions. First, what rates should I discharge/charge the battery during the cycle? Second, how long does it take to service the unit (if cycling doesn't work)?

Thanks

Jim
