Got my son one of these great little helicopters and he loved it!  He is a fanatic about charging things though.  He plugged his S107G up to the pc to charge and left it...for months.  Now when you try to fly it the blades spin around like they are supposed to, but when you puch the right knob to make it go it just goes straight to the ground (from it's landing spot above).  Not like a nose dive or anything. It just won't go UP.  Although it has power, I was wondering if something is wrong with the battery (reduced power or something) since it was left on to charge forever.  Any input would be greatly appreciated as he only flew this thing like twice and now it doesn't work.  bummer!!

Thanks!

Sounds like it is over charged and needs a new battery Lipos dont like to be cooked.

Lucky the thing did not catch fire.

Yeah, it's meant to be on there until it's charged, then taken off right then and there. then wait 3-4 minutes, then fly, then wait 3-4 minutes, then charge, then fly, and repeat, except on the last flight before storing for a good while, do everything you can to run it to zero. From there, it's a debate whether it should be recharged to full, or left dead.

 

A good "correct" battery should run about $6, but I'd go with the upgrade batteries out there for a little more.

Thank You for the replies!  Thanks for confirming what I suspected. I will find and order a new battery.  I will also make sure my son reads your replies. Smile

A good idea is to get some small male/female conecters to fit to the wires, opposite way round so no wrong connection and easy replacement of a battery.

Heck, if you do that, get multiple batteries, then you can charge them all at once, go wherever you wanted to to do some serious flying, pop off the shell, pop in annother battery, and keep flying!
