Who handels the US warranty service for Flight Power? I went to plug my balancer in and it didn't work. It wouldn't init as a 6 cell pack. Come to find out 2 of the wires from the leads look like they where never even hooked up to the cells?

Thanks,
Gullie

On the FP 6S1P 4900 pack, there are 2 wires not used on the balancer plug. The 2 wires not used are on the six pin TP style connector (last 2 connections, those would be used if the pack was a 7-8 cell pack). If you go to the HF Trex 600 forum you will see a sticky about this.

Something else must be up. I would check with a volt meter the voltages on the balancer plug. Start with the 4 pin connector then measure pin 1(black) to pin 2, then pin 2-3 then pin 3-4, then on the 6pin connector pin 5-6, then 6-7, and then 7-8. They should all be very close in voltage. If you get a readout fine on all of them, something is up with the balancer.

Thanks.

Which balancer are you using? I've got a Flightpower Staybalance balancer that only ever picked up 5 of the 6 cells, spoke to Flightpower who said send it back, got the replacement which did exactly the same! I'm using the V Balancer now without any problems.

Thanks for the tips. Turns out that the battery is fine. The extra wires and a goof on my part made me think somthing was faulty.

Man my 600 flies great. It has insane power with these cells.

Thanks,
Gullie
