Brand new 107G won't charge

Hi

 

I received a S107G for xmas. I used it once (without charging the copter) and then once the battery "died" I tried to charge - but not straight away. It was at least half an hour after usage.

 

I've tried to charge it by USB - but the light on the USB stays red.

 

And tried to charge through the controller - the light remains green.

 

Yes, the switch on the copter is in the "off" position.

 

This is really frustrating for a brand new gift - with only 1 use. 🙁

Hi Oz And welcome the forum.

If you have 2 usb ports try another one, if that is not the problem then it could be a loose wire on the battery Mother board.

Thanks. I have tried several USB ports, plus charging from the controller. Nothing works.

The problem could be that you did not fully charge the copter first, because the battery is a Lithium polymer (Lipo) and they dont like to be fully discharged anymore than overcharged, there is a small charge in a new one but when depleted could die, I am not saying this is the case but it could be very likely.
