I'm purchasing a Honey Bee V2 on spec. The guy knows nothing about it apart from the fact the blades spin but it will not lift off. I get the impression that if the 4in1 were burnt out there would not even be this. Does this sound like a knackered battery...left too long at full discharge? At £20 I can hardly complain.

Well Tom without seeing it it is just a guess but it does sound like an old battery with a high internal resistance. If my wife gets her way (likely) - we will be moving to Scotland and we might just get the chance to worry about these things together sometimes.

The more I think about it the more I think battery. My EXI 450 will not lift with my old batteries but the Blade 400 will fly for an easy 4 min on them.
(They are quite a few years old ~ a bit like me now.)

Tom.

Hi Tom,

As Tom suggests probably the battery, and if nothing else it's a full set of spares for just £20.00. Depending of the physical size needed, on ebay now there's a Zippy Compact £8.49 +£ 0.93 delivery.

Capacity: 850mAh
Voltage: 3S1P / 3 Cell / 11.1V
Discharge: 25C Constant / 35C Burst
Weight: 64g (including wire, plug & case)
Dimensions: 59x31x20mm
Balance Plug: JST-XH
Discharge Plug: JST

I've had a pair of these Zippy Compact batteries, a 1300mAh and a 1800mAh for 18 months now and no problems both are holding their charge.

Cheers guys, that's what I am hoping for. Even if it is the 4 in 1 it's no biggie. I am planning on Spektrumizing it with an AR 6200 so worse comes to worse I'll have to get a 3 in 1 to replace it.

One dead main motor control. Sad the rotor spun because they had it hooked up to the tail output! Hahaha

I'm getting a CP3 3 in 1 and gonna hook up my AR6200 to it. Also going to fit a CP3 main and direct drive tail motor. Fuse mod is ready to go in as well.

Unfortunately there is a TON of vibration and shake in the rotors spinning up. Really bad. Slow to fast is rubbish. Gotta now figure out how to strip the whole thing down and start checking everything for trueness, damage and balance.
