micro heli battery disconnection during flight, and repair

I was filming a flight of my ecoman microgear Schweitzer helicopter when it fell out of the sky after loosing power, when I opened up the canopy I noticed the negative battery wire had disconnected from its solder point. Fortunately I was able to re solder it. This was my first time to ever solder anything so it wasn’t pretty but it works. After the battery was re soldered, everything works just fine.
I have had two Styrofoam body picoo z helicopters from silverlit and neither worked as well as my ecoman microgear heli, Even though it has had problems they wear all fixable. Silverlit should really do a plastic body version of the picoo z, it would make it a lot easier for people to work on.

    Mad props for saving that 25 bucks…. you sure did get ur monies worth out of this product 😉 ?

  • R/C 101:

    Wow do you mean like an original foam picoo Z from 6 or 7 years ago. It's battery may be long past being able to hold a good charge. I have a few helis that are more then 5 years old that will not charge because of old age.

  • C119G:

    I have a Picoo z that won't charge up at all any ideas?
