Re: charger died

Those stock chargers are pretty crappy. Would suggest you invest in a good computer charger with variable charging rates and storage mode.

Contact Horizon, they'll probably send you a free replacement.

Re: charger died

If you decide to call horizon, use the callback option (just wait on hold for about 5-10 minutes and it'll tell you how). I did it and they didn't call back until 3 hours later, I would've been waiting for that long!

I am teaching a new heli flyer and just ran into trouble with that charger - not worth fixing - damaged two batteries.

replacing it with a good charger will save you headaches.
