hi heli men
i've got align 35a speed controller
at the start of having it in my t-rex it woz great
but now all of a sudden when you fly the heli first 1 minute not got that much power then every thinks fine as normal & flying time has dropped from 9min to 6min,then when checked battery valt still got 11.v

but now start heli then blades go not as fast as normal & can't get off ground plus seems as the speed controller is drpping it speed like when it close to the end of flying time & that's off a fully charged battery!

any answers please
i think speed controller wornout

Possible that the battery is on its way out or is not getting a proper charge ??

Have you changed any settings in the transmitter that could have effected the throttle/idleup settings ??
Any pitch, blade or head RPM changes been made ??

Just some ideas

Ryan.

Check setup of the ESC and go to Fixed mode instead of Gov mode which I think you are configured for.

Or to stay in gov mode, adjust end points of throttle channel to get full throttle. (adjust end points to red light comes on.)

thanx

You might be getting a false voltage reading on the pack because your testing it with out a load on it, dont forget that battery charged is around 12.5 volts, the easiest thing to do is borrow or buy another battery to see if that is the problem. then go from there. Im taking for granted you only have one battery.

thats strange that you posted this, I was convinced that my tp2100 was dead from overcharging or overdraining or a combination of the two, but perhaps it is the align esc, it's strange, it seems like the battery is dead, but I will land for a few seconds and then it takes off like a rocket when I bring the stick back up to where it was hovering, driving me crazy! Although my battery does seem quite hot afterwards and I still think the battery is on its way out but am going to make a point of getting a cc35 asap and limit my flying on my other packs until then, If it is the esc I dont want to fry another 75 dollar battery pack...
