A friend gave me his TT innovator electric heli,the batteries for this heli here are a ridiculous price as they have integrated electronics built in the battery case.Any of you guys looked into what the circuit board does/is.Would like to buy batteries at a realistic price not £54 plus postage from the UK suppliers for a 3S 1800 mah 25c battery

Team- unbiased opinion.K.I.S.S principle upheld here

A special 3S Li-Po battery is packaged inside a thin shell, light plastic hard case. Every battery pack has an exclusive ID corresponding to INNOVATOR helicopter. A valid ID is required to start the helicopter motor. A built-in temperature sensor in the battery pack measures feeds back battery condition to the smart monitor in each pack for recording and analysis. It can record voltage, current, temperature and usage time.

That part is BS. Change the ESC or RX (or whatever is responsible for ID checking) out of that thing so you can use normal batteries. It's like MGS4.

If you get a good ESC or datalogger it'll do all that stuff for you anyways.

i have heard that the info on the batt log is stored in the batt and that the memory drains the batt if you leave it alone for to long so it is a self destructing batt i cant for the life of know why they would make a batt that will drain its self just setting there , how stupid can they be ?

DKNguyen do you own either Innovator?
The ICS main control unit includes a built-in heading lock gyro, a 2.4 GHz spread spectrum receiver, digital servo amplifiers, and speed control with built-in governor.

The main control CPU collects all control and sensor information. The Inno has a 3 IN 1 SERVO UNIT which combines together with elevator, rudder and collective pitch servo. The digital type servo amplifiers are all mounted on the main printed circuit board that also houses the gyro and electronic speed controller (ESC) and receiver. The cyclic or aileron servo mechanics is house together with the collective pitch control arm assembly.

Plus it's all combined to provide it's own Data logger, the PC software analyzes the data recorded on the onboard control device during the flight and displays the data in a graph, like output voltage of the battery for respective periods, monitor the battery voltage and main rotor rpm for respective batteries, current, temperature, and change of recorded data.

So, to simply say Change the ESC or RX, you might as well say - Buy another Heli......

the innv has its bad points but i still love it and have 2 of them ,one with the foam blades on for inside flying and 1 with carbon fib blades for 3d outside flying but you dont need 2 because just add cabon blades and turn up the settings and it is a beast and it flys GREAT for a beginner and a hot dog flyer . i have 3 people that i have got into flying but using this heli , when you have the foam blades on it can take a beating and keep on flys . there is one guy who has crashed it a dozen times and has just changed blades and tail booms and landing gear and go fly.
