    I just got my Walkera F210 from Tower Hobbies yesterday. Tonight I charged the battery and plugged the battery in and something inside the drone made a big puff of smoke and sparks and I unplugged it as soon as it happened. both the connectors on drone and battery were black on one of the prongs. Tower said to contact Walkera which I think they should take it back and send me a new one. Seems hard to contact Walkera because they are in China? What should I do?

    wait what?!?!?!
    So your drone did a Samsung trick and tried to blow up?

    but yea YOU dont have to contact Walkera you only need to contact your supplier of the drone and they need to fight it out with Walkera.
    So send the drone back with the problem DOA (Dead On Arrival).

    Contact Tower and Contact Walkera.com via the online chat and explain what has happened.

    Did Tower ship you the correct battery? How many wires on the balance lead to the battery?

    Did you use the OEM charger that came with the model?

    They wont fix it. Its trash. They will send you a new one. (Cost way too much to repair in labour costs.)
