    Isis 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/.

    Charge time with the charger, depending on starting point of what is in the battery, can be more than an hour. To check the battery see if you can get a 'LiPo Checker'. You might find them at an RC hobby shop or in your part of the world they are available at HobbyKing. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__41637__H_King_Cellmeter_7_Lipo_Life_Li_ion_Nimh_Nicd_Digital_Battery_Checker_With_Balance_Function.html

    Tony can you post a cell phone video of your charger while it is charging? Close so we can see the face of the charger and then back out a little so that we can see the battery connections, both the power and the white balance wires (those are the wires that go to the small white molex connector).

    Tony you have not connected the white molex balance lead to the charger. Take a look in the quick start guide or the regular manual. It needs to be plugged in so that the battery can correctly charge.
