Hello All.
It has been 4-6 months since I have let the ole bird out of the cage.
Thought I'd knock dust of the props.
Batteries for the quad were at 1 line discharged. And did charge up fully.
The Controller however wasn't so forgiving. I got 0 responce from it in any way.
No Leds, put it on charge, nothing... Left it on charge, Still nothing.
So looks like I'm S.O.L.  =   Slam Outta Luck
Am I now looking for a new controller?
I know it was engineered to not be serviceabe so far as replacing batteries, other than Hack jobs.
Any suggestions ?

Thanks in advance.

You could probably send it to a near repair facility for a new rc power pack...

Don’t throw in the white towel quite yet. Surrender never... haha

You can replace with a standard 2S LiPo ... but its advisable to have the charging done via balance lead instead of via the plug in the side. You can get Chargers for under $10 that charge only via the balance lead 2S and 3S packs. Slow but good. It means leading the balance lead outside the case.

If you do decide to open the case to do it .... take care about the fragile wires to the roller controls and switches ... I opened my old controller to repair cracked antenna mounts and wires came away ...

There are various videos on Youtube by people who have replaced the batterys.

Something does not look right about the lead ... as the original is a double header lead - but eBay batterys show a balance plug .....

For those sellers to ship to USA / EU or international - they must be concealing the fact of being LiPo of 6000mAh ...  

See this :



and then this ..



and you will see what I mean.

The biggest problem about the DJI batterys are the strange dimensions ...

Thanks RHP and Nigel.
Good news,
I plugged it back in this morning and I had first Led flashing. Ended up charging after a few hours.
But yday it was nothing and I have OEM charger and A Console Rapid charger that can charge 3 Batts. and controller at once. Nothing from either.
My thought was get another controller as I had Prev. said, They can be had easy enough.
And Donor parts from 1 to the other.
Now I'm working out the other cob webs from sitting so long.
Had to take to local shop and pair controller to quad and I had changed shell original shell had reset link button and I modded for motor fitmenet. Shop was impressed I pulled that off.
Boy am I rusty on my swirl transition of rotating in flight and maintaining desired direction.

Thanks again EVERYBODY

Those replacement batteries are just about as much as the controller.  About $90 usd, plus a month for shipping.
