Welcome to the forum, tiger. Ha!

From the little you've said, it may well be a battery problem if it's been sitting around for months.

What sort of battery? What state was the battery in when you left it - charged, discharged, run flat, storage charge?

And how do you check the battery charge and condition? Do you have a decent lipo charger or perhaps a basic one supplied with the machine?

I'd start with the battery, then if the battery is 100%, move on to diagnose further.

Hope that helps.

Best advice you could be given - and you DO NEED a good charger.

Hello Tiger and welcome to the forum,

If you haven't flown it for some time, I would have thought that you'd have given the battery a charge before attempting to lift off, in which case the battery may-well be the problem.

If your in the UK, then have a look at Giant Shark.co.uk

7.4v 1000mAh 2S1P 20-30C Lipo Battery £4.49.

And they have balance Chargers too.
