    Bayena welcome to the forums.

    Would you be kind enough to change your user name to your real first name and last name, please? The reasons for this (and how to do it) are explained here: http://forum.freeflysystems.com/index.php?threads/real-names.497/.

    Did you check the Mimic manual where it says charge the battery with a 5v USB cable?

    Hi Gary, that's my real name.
    Yes, I readed the manual, but the mimic part it's very poor.
    I used an iphone wall charger, and it doesn't work. I think I have to return it.

    Bayena, I am guessing the wall charger did not have enough amperage. Worth an email to support@freeflysystems.com.

    As to the name we ask for full given name, family name for all of our forum members.

    No. Freefly changed my mimic because the battery was completly discharged.

    Just got my Mimic and it took all day to get to 75% charge using a 10 amp iPad wall charger. Tried the next day with the smaller iphone charger and it didnt improve. After reading the above post do I need to send mine in?

    That's a question for FF tech support at support@freeflysystems.com, I'm afraid.
