I just bought an Axe cp this morning and the manual says to plug the charger in the wall first and the light will turn orange to red and after it initializes the light turns green and then plug the battery in for charging. My charger never got the green light it just keeps flashing red. I plugged in the battery for a few hours anyway and it never charged. My charger also seems to get warmer than a normal charger should.....does this sound like I got a junk charger out of the box?

Thanks
Roger

Yeap, I have a Rotofly my kids gave me for b'day this summer, and the charger did the same thing. I contacted Tower Hobbies, where they got it from, and got the authorization to return it. Took a while, as it was out of stock, but eventually got a new one which works fine.

Do yourself a favor and upgrade to the optional lipo battery and charger right away. The stock battery offers little flight time. You no more then get it up in the air and yourself settled in then the batt dies!

Actually the kit came with the Lipo Battery but I brought it back and they tested the charger and determined it was bad. They gave me a new charger and battery no problem. Thanks for the help everyone.
