    How do I know my remote battery is fully charged? All four lights are still flashing in order.
    Thanks in advance

    I think they stop flashing once it's charged

    The flashing lights will shut off when the battery is fully charged.

    It takes a long long time to charge - they will go out eventually!!!

    You don't need to charge the controller very often it lasts for ages.

    Yeah it's good like that, though I've found if I don't check. My tablet tries to charge off the RC.

    I'm going to try the simulator tomight. Probably won't get to fly it for a few days. Calling for high of 20 tomorrow with snow and gusts of 45 mph. I'd tryit today, but my IPad won' be here until tomorrow. It a shame because it's 26 and 5 mph wind. It'll happen soon enough. Thanks again for the help.
