    Rplacemant QR-1 won't fly, lights blinking like a low battery

    I just received back from Traxxas a new QR-1, last one had a short or something, I sent the Qr-1 back with the transmitter also, I also have 4 batteries also, 1st test flite... reset and bind as instructions say to do, all lights go solid, then QR-1's lights start flashing but will fly 5 sec then stops like the batteries are low/dead, tried everything, all 4 batteries seem to have full charge and same problem? voltage is good as tested......

    Thanks for any input.

    Sure sounds like the batteries are bad, how old are they?

    I would try cycling the batts a few times to see if they come back to life or just pick up a new one and see if it works right. They are fairly inexpensive and I think the most likely cause of the problem.

    Thanks, I must of read your mind, I got the full size Lipo charger out and cycling one now its taking a while discharge but I'm doing it slow since its a tiny battery and don't want to over heat it and the batteries are cheap too.

    The battery is a component which may be loss work any time accidentally. Mostly when we keep battery with out charging for a long time.
