    I purchased the uav locator a couple weeks ago and used it several times and now its dead as a door-nail, wont take a charge or come on. Anyone else experience this type of problem with the device?

    Thanks

    I have had mine for at least a couple of months and no problems with charging. How are you charging it? wall charger or usb port. When you plug in the charge cable to locator, the Right led should blink red until charged and then blink green. If you are using wall charger, try using the usb port and see if that works. You may have a bad wall adapter. it will automatically turn on when you start charging it.

    your suggestion made perfect sense so I went back to the office to get it and after an hour and a half it had started charging. Odd. I appreciate your response.

    Thanks

    Are you using wall or usb to charge it. Are you getting the red blinking?
