My mate JAGNZ obviously hasn't seen this thread yet or he'd be piping in.
Jonny is right, after those 2 failures, NO Fromeco packs for me ever again. It was heartbreaking because they happened within a few weeks of each other too. Oh well, live and learn.

Tossing out a battery because it's two yrs old is crazy! What if the battery isn't used much?

Typical nimh or nicad battery chemicals deteriorate in time and lose the ability to hold a charge. Lithium type batteries have a limited number of charges before deterioration begins in earnest - This is typically between 100-200 charges. I do not know about the time-deterioration of lithium batteries. Thus all of these types may indicate fully charged but beware...!

I am unfamiliar with the Fromeco line.

the tossing of packs

I would check them out first, but when I talked with Fromeco thats what they say to do is. Toss them after they are two years old. And as well all know we only get so many charges to these packs. But who knows they may last longer then two years. But two years is a long time if you ask me.

Well I think I can fly it..............UH OH OOPS heres your heli.
