After about 7 or 8 charges, I seem to be having problems changing my Blade mCX battery. Up until now, after 30 or 40 mins, the charger started to flash, then the red light went out.

Now it's been over an hour, and the light is still on. If I remove the battery, it remains on.

Anybody come across this, and if so, was there a fix?

Thanks

Your are correct. The manual does not say so but when the red light stays on the charger batteries are low. That is the one thing that sucks about the MCX. Get some rechargeable AA's or do the wall adapter mod that is found on here.

Good batteries are the key, I use good AA batteries and also upgraded the stock 110 battery to a aftermarket 130 battery in the mcx and have had really good results

definately charger batteries need replaced. I have only been getting around 35-40 charges on a set of AA

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

Dont mean to hijack the topic, but I tried the dime on the front of the canopy trick and now I get better fff. The only problem is, it crashes more and those tiny o rings always come off. I dont think it was meant to do fff.

Btw., thanks for the heads up on the charger, mine was doing the same thing.
