Greetings,

I just revecived 4 new TB 48's. All charged ok.  Placed one battery in the craft, activated it, and it crackled emitted smoke then became unresponsive.

Just had a second battery do this now. Same thing.


Anyone else having this issue??

Hi, Mike are you sure your aircraft is in excellent working condition? Two batteries in a row.... It sounds like there is a short somewhere. From where did you get said new batteries? Safety First! Ken.

Craft is fine. Its new. I have 4 other batteries that fly and charge fine. These batteries failed pretty much right outta the box.

Yo, airport dog I'm glad it did not damage your Inspire and your dealer was a gentleman! Safety First! Ken.

Maybe you have some sort of strong magical energy.  My 4x TB48s work perfectly.  Unfortunately, I get as much flight time as the Spark.
