Recently rebuilt my Trex600N, it has an Align 2 in 1 and a Castle Creations BEC with a one year old 2100mAh 2s TP battery. I'm worried about the Align 2 in 1, for one thing it is old, the shrink wrapped kind when they first came out, plus it'll show one red led and start acting funny when the battery is still half full, it did this on the bench during the rebuild. And again at the field yesterday. After two great flights I go for a third, switch on get one green and have trouble starting engine, buy the time I get it started maybe 5 min goes by. I set her down and start to spool up and realize (piro) that the tail servo is hard over and unresponsive. I look and now see only one red LED, so I reboot everything and now the gyro/tail servo was working fine but the swash servos drive to full down and stall, now they are unresponsive, rebooted with another battery and all OK. So I charged the battery and it only took 1000mAh. Plus the battery checks good. So now I'm freaked out about flying with that 2 in 1. I do have a brand new A123 Fromeco pack on the shelf for my Srimok so I thought I could use that. If I take the Align 2 in 1 out I'm gonna need nose weight anyway. It's allready slightly tail heavy. Thanks
