    Hi. I am having a very weird problem with my Syma X5HW quadcopter. As soon as I fly it up, it starts flashing slow as if battery is low even though I fully charged and tested my battery. Battery is fine. When I plug in the battery for charging, it shows that the battery is fully charged. Kindly help me out if the problem is with the quadcopter chipset or battery? Thanks

    Are you using the original battery that came with the quad or something with an equivalent mAh and discharge/C rating?

    Thanks for responding. I am currently using a third party battery that I purchased from local supplier. Its of 750 mAh as compared to original one that is 500 mAh. My original battery has been swollen and it is not working properly. Kindly assist me . thanks

    You used a multimeter?
    You say 'properly' does that mean it still works somewhat?

    It doesn't actually work. Quadcopter lifts a meter from the ground and it starts blinking like the battery is down.

    Very likely issues with the batteries. The original being puffed usually means it's been over discharged and gas started to build up in the cell. The new ones with extra weight maybe stressing the motors and/or pulling more amps to lift and causing the voltage to dip while under load. Hard to say for sure but would take more testing with a multimeter and/or lipo tester.
