Yes I am very good about waiting 15 min even if I wanted to cheat on the time my 9 year old son would not let  me. Just bought mhim a hero h288 and he uses a timer befour flying his.  Thanks for response.  I use the usb cable and when it lights up unplug for and wait 15 min.    This is my back up so I have 2 of them and my son has one.  Just bought s301g after watching supernova video should be here soon.

Mike, First of all, welcome to the forum! Glad to have you

on board. We'll get this figured out somehow.

  Seems like you know what you are doing to be able

to replace batteries and motors, so can I ask:

 How long are you charging the heli for?

 Are you letting it cool down following our 15

minute rule discussed on here? This is both

post-charge and post-flight.

   What device are you using to charge?

(Reason for asking, I've had terrible results

with direct-to-wall chargers.)

     Sorry for all the q's, but just trying to

use process of elimination to see if tthere is 

possibly a battery-charging issue.

  Good luck and check often. Remember this

forum is world-wide and may take some

time to get responses!

Thanks for your advice, I checked that after I read your response and all looks good no slippage but that was a great suggestion.

Thank you . I will keep trying to figure it out.

There are a lot more members that are much more knowledgeable than I, but I suggest that you test the gear shaft-gear-rotor head connections for intactness.  The top and lower gears and their respective shafts should directly connect with their rotor heads and grips.  There should be no slippage.  The motor gears must also engage with the gears- sometimes one of the drive gears slips down out of position.  There are a couple of  "how to"  videos here that probably can address your problem.  Good Luck
