    Hi,

    I won this drone in a raffle almost a year ago and i've been trying to find a battery for the remote ever since, on and off.

    i've ordered many, but none fit.

    It's 7.4V 2200mAh Li-po 2S

    but rather a small one.

    At this point, i wouldn't even care if i tape it to the outside of the remote, or if i buy a whole remote, as long as it has the battery, but alas, can't find a place to buy either.

    can you please help me find a battery for the remote or a spare remote.

    Thank you,

    Tea

    I have not needed to do a replacement on anF8S so not sure what the dimensions of the battery are. But it only needs to be about 5C rated. That would make a big difference in size.

    Cheers Brian

    Thank you, Brian.
    Here is a pic.


    Or do you know of any other reason the remote won't charge. The second led just stays solid red.

    If you have a voltmeter check the voltage between the black and red wires and the red and white wires.

    And let me know.

    Need all 3 dimensions of the battery. Most likely a Small drone 2S battery will fit or a Devo F7 battery. Looks like you will need to rewire regardless I cant see the connector well enough in the picture to determine what type of connector it is.

    The Devo F7 battery is this one.

    AliExpress.com

    Is the Charge lead original? Many have blown their Walkera Devos by using an over current, capable Power adapter.

    The charger is the original. The thing was brand new, the remote just wouldn't charge.
    we just moved and the chances of finding the voltmeter equals zero. i'll order a new one and let you know.

    This is the picture before i stripped the blue plastic off it.

    OK I can see that it is only a 2C lipo. Should be relatively easy to find a replacement that will fit.

    Can you measure all 3 dimensions and I will see if any of the WLToys or MJX 2S drone batteries will fit.

    Cheers
