My trusty Align Starter started giving me problems yesterday. I went up to the field on a chilly day (40 degrees). I charged my starter battery beforehand and flew once. After my initial flight, my starter wouldn't turn anything over. The leds showed an overload.

Anyway, when it warmed up it worked fine again. I put the starter and the battery in the freezer separately. It is the starter that's the problem.

Can I fix this or do I need a new one? Has anyone heard this before?

I have experienced this with lithium cordless drills that won't work until they warm up. I have to keep them near the heater in winter.

spending time, paying attention

same thing happed to mine...wouldnt turn over anything without crying about an "overload"... I ripped out the electronics and replaced it all with a 12A 120vac push button momentary switch from lowes...

problem solved.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

I already bought another starter at a bargain price. It wasn't worth the frustration.
