    hey any one know why my drone isn't flying I've tried recalibrating it, replacing the rotors, charging the batteries everything I can think of, but the rotors will just spin for about a second and then quit or it will fly about 13 feet of the ground then fall so if you have any suggestions please tell me thanks

    Well it's always a good idea to use a meter and check the battery's voltage after charging. Should be ~4.2V.

    Do not immediately replace everything first know what is the main problem first.

    He private messaged me I told him to open a thread, I said also to check battery voltage after charge & the time it dies. Should get at least 5min. & try not to run them right down below 3.6v as this is no good for the cells.

    Is it actually draining the batteries? Have you checked the voltage before and after flying for however long it will take off? Basically would be good to know if there is a short or some component that is sucking the life out of the batteries or if it is just some kind of software issue or other glitch.

    What did you do,checking the voltage wont make it work.
    What was the outcome. & how much was this f105.

    Not for a dud lipo. Only solution is a new one. Maybe if you had a power adapter with different voltage settings
    5v 7v 12v. You could jury rig an adapter to power the quad. You not get far lol but you would know for sure its the battery..
    Its the battery anyway going from the explanation.
