But with freshly charged battery it flies good right? It is probably bad (weak) battery fault. Or it is motor fault. But if with freshly charged battery it still wont fly then I think you will need to change the motor orange44

If with freshly charged battery it flies good, then it is battery fault. But 5 mins ain't that bad for esky 7.4V 800mah battery. My friend used that battery about a week and then it lasted about a minute in flight. I think you should buy few new batteries. They are cheap. Look for mystery 7.4V 900mah batteries, They are great and VERY cheap excited

Keep in mind that there are a lot of different things in the head that can be just a little bit out of adjustment and cause your problem. Those things will cause the motor to have to work harder and will shorten your flight time. P3 is right, your problem may be the motor, but I think I would carefully go thru set up before I would change the motor. One big culprit is the flybar paddles. They MUST be equal distance from the center of the head, and they MUST both be set to the same angle of pitch.

P3 is also right about the battery. 5 mins ain't bad, but I would expect to get at least 7 or 8 minutes, but you should always limit your flight to about 6 minutes anyway to keep from over draining the batts. Overdraining them will ruin them.

Just remember, there are a lot of things in the head that will cause poor lift if they are just slightly out of adjustment. If you ever experience poor lift or vibrations, always stop and go back thru everything in your set up. Set up is the absolute most important issue for a good flying heli.

Remember to limit your flight time to 6 or 7 minutes. Any more and you will ruin your batterys.
