Having a tough time with my iKon micro in my 180. I get her up into a hover and she holds for a bit, then I start losing power and I'm on the ground. Batteries are OK. Replaced motor and speed control. Don't know what else to do. Any ideas will be appreciated. Posting on Facebook also.
Thanks. Jim

My problem was my batteries were dead. They would charge up ok, but they weren't giving enough power. Also, the ikON is going to use more power, so when do get flying, shorten your flight time about 1 minute to make up the difference. I recommend the PULSE batteries.

Also, check in the Transmitter Panel of the PC app to make sure your throttle travels from 0 to 100% in a throttle curve that has a full 0 to 100% linear curve.
