    Hey there
    I have troubles with charging my Rc. It just blinks with one light, and doesn't start charging. Just like this:
    Any suggestions?
    Thx

    It’s a mainboard failure I’m afraid, the battery is full but the board sees it as empty, I’ve seen a few posts on FB groups about this issue

    don't know if you have fixed the problem but my controller did exactly the same go on youtube and look for the fault there you will get lots of videos on how to fix it you take the back off in 2 parts disconnect the internal battery for a minute or two put back together and it should work fine no cost involved mine works perfectly now
