Yes, but you need to know what you're doing. Do your research first before attempting anything like that. If you don't know what your doing, and you solder the wrong tab a to the wrong tab b, things will go wrong for you very quickly.

Again, I'm sorry about your bummer situation man. Not trying to come down on you, I just think your LHS is giving you the shafteola.

His lhs told him this info,(suspect as it is) and he kind of is caught in the middle.

IMO your hobbyshop should step up for you, and also try to explain why they think the battery could short your esc/motor. Was it an 8cell labeled as a 6?(only thing I can think of?!?!)

Also, RH has been great for me.

I appreciate all the advice and will "attempt" to go 5s with it. I agree the hobbyshop that gave me this info is mostly to blame. In the end, I just wanted to fly and lost nearly $200 doing that. For once this time it was not because I crashed but because of a bad buy I made somewhere in this mix.

I'm betting he got the polarity wrong on either the battery or the esc connector and that's what fried everything and why it's not being warranteed

I've done the same brain-fart thing myself - Wired an esc wrong and total meltage when attached battery - **it happens

I also got a free battery from my lhs when someone else did the same thing - All I had to do was resolder a cell tab that fried in two and good as new

Honestly, man, I don't know how a frying ESC could take out ONE CELL of a pack either, unless it was the cell directly connected to the postive lead? Maybe? KongPower told you to talk to ReadyHeli?

There's a lot of logic missing here.

Someone needs to make good if a cell is bad, but I dunno if it's ReadyHeli. If it IS ReadyHeli, then they need to reimburse your LHS, and your LHS needs to reimburse you. You can't skip links in the money chain, as a customer or as a supplier. Whoever got the money is responsible.

That's how I see it.

Good luck man.

+ and - black and red
Errr, I'd highly recommend red for +...

Hmm... That was a twisty monkeywrench thrown into the wheels of the logictrain...

ReadyHeli Rocks

I have ordered many things from them and I will continue to do so, they are very good to deal with and provided me with excellent custmer service, sounds like our issue is with Kong Power not ready heli. Chief

I'm not a pilot, I'm a crash facilitator!

I thinbk your LHS should step up, and if they don't, I would give them the finger!!

As for Ready heli telling you to send it back to them, for a direct replacment, and then for them to corner you and say,"They will give you 50% off", is also bullcrapp.

I don't care how good ther custormer sevice is, they did back you into a corner, and now your out 180 plus shipping back and fourth. If this part is accurate, and true, and Im not saying it is or is NOT, then you was wronged!!!!!

I have heard nothing but good reports about ready heli as well, but this means nothing, and I don't even know why I said this, as it has no bearing on the current situation.

Personally, when ever I hear just one bad report about a shop, I never go there......
