    My charger shuts off. It's a balance charger.

    What type of charger? Can you change the setting? Do you have a multimeter to check the cell voltage when it's done charging and when it's dead?

    Well check the cells. Each cell should be 4.2 charged and never lower than 3 volts dead. If you've run it in the cold you may have ruined a cell. I did that to 2 lipos. One cell will remain warmer than the other. And the warm cell gets drawn down faster. I forget the lowest temp that's safe to run them. They actually make heated wraps for them that will keep them above 60 deg

    Okay I'll check them tomorrow. You think it could be anything with the servo? It's making a loud static noise.

    If it's digital they are loud. It's trying to center. My 100 coreless digital savox is really loud. I don't see how a servo would drain your Lipo faster. The servo still works right. Is their binding in your driveline? And check the voltage periodically throughout your run.

    It still doesn't turn completely right. It wants to do a half turn. But there's no reason for my battery's to be draining? No water or anything had touched em.

    Your servo might be shot.

    Would the servo run the battery's down?

    Alright so I'm gonna order a savox waterproof an horn. I hope that's the problem I can't figure out why the battery's are dieing. They are new an only been charged a couple of times. Anyone know what might be going on?

    Lipo batteries dont slow down like a nimh or nicad as the voltage drops lipo delivers a consistent output and when it hits the lvc it will just quit some will allow a small amount of movement but act like a dead battery
