Bought my s107 recently.  Flew like a champ for about 2 weeks.  One day after charging, I get no response from the s107.  The lights come on and I turn it on first then the controller and vice-versa but no spin on either blades.  Tried another controller from a new s107 and still no response.  What could be wrong?  It is charging because I've left the lights on it until they go out then I charge it for the normal 40 mts - whenCry light on USB comes on again.

Can you hear the motor trying to move? Like a clicking noise? Or is there even a noise?

Thanks for asking.  No noise from either of the motors or the heli at all.  Very frustrating.

Dead-ish battery. Look it over- if it's bloated, order a new 3.7v 240mah battery from amazon.

 

Have to let it cool for 5 minutes or more before and after charging. More is good, less is bad. If it's a bloated/bad battery, it'll charge enough for the LED, but it will not power the heli at all.

 

Take care of the toys, they're delicate for being tough. That battery and their gears are their soft underbelly. Hit either with a proverbial spear, and it's ditw.

 

Flashey, flashey, no flie. (if that's how you properly spell "fly-e")

I was actually thinking a dead motor considering the lights still flash.

Somebody else was posting with the same issue, and Supernova figured that out exactly as a dead battery.

 

You know how when you're at the end of your flight, and the lights still go, but you can't get the motors to go anymore, that's where the battery is. Just enough to power the low-draw of the LED, but not enough for the MB and motors.

 

You can check easilly for dead motors, though, if you have a fake and a real with the same charge port. They're oposit polarity, and you get motors spinning backward when plugged in from the wrong charger to disipate the power from the cord. Did that to check the rumors with my 102 using my hybrid s107's charger, and it works.

The lights take next to no power at all, but the motors draw a big punch for flying.

Thank you.  I will check the battery to see if it is bloated.   Might even order a new one anyway.  I'll give you all a status when I do this..
