Default loss of power during flight

hi all,

was flying my mcpx in light wind, just flying back and forth (still learning, using the mcpx as practice), when suddenly it lost all power and dropped (spinning) to the ground. this is the only time so far this has happened, but wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem, or if there is an issue i should be aware of and getting fixed?

i have the mcp x v2, using dx6i and stock batteries, with the bullet blades.

Default loss of power during flight

hi all,

i have a mcpx v2, using dx6i, stock batteries and currently using the bullet blades. was flying today in light wind, just flying back and forth probably about 10-15 meters from the ground, not going full forward in speed (still learning - mcpx is excellent for this) when suddenly lost all power and the heli fell spinning kinda slowly crashing into the ground.

luckily no damage, but just wondering if anyone else has had this problem during flight or if there is any issue i need to be fixing before it gets worse?

Default Hi

Use the timer on the radio. 3:30 you likely over flew the battery.
Charge .2

Sounds like you hit LVC. how long a flight do you get?
4 minutes is long on stock batteries.
I get 4 minutes on nano-tech 300mah

sounds like your battery is at the end of it's life or as above, you hit LVC. Also make sure your main gear hasn't slipped neither.
