Post subject: how long to charge a battery?
with my 'bee, I can fly for about 7 mins then the battery (3 cell as factory supplied) goes flat. putting it on charge the green light flashes for over 2 hours, I read that the max time on charge should be never more than 2 hours. How long should a charge take? Also 7 mins flying for 2 hours charging??? is that normal? Will be very grateful for any experiences on this. Ta in advance, keith
