    Hi guys,

    I'm not sure if I have a problem with my new Walkera Devo 7, but the brand new AA batteries I just put in are almost drained (according to the transmitter readout). I haven't even flown my quadcopter, I've only hooked it up and few times to Betaflight to configure and also to go through the transmitter setup.

    I have two questions:

    1. Is there a known issue with Devo 7 draining batteries quickly?

    2. What rechargeable battery can I purchase for the Devo 7 that will fit inside with no problems?

    Thanks

    I had a Devo 7, but not aware of any issues. Maybe you can give a time estimation how fast they are drained?

    I only use rechargeable batteries in my transmitter (devo 10).
    The eneloop xxx I can highly recommend. Huge capacity and very reliable and durable.

    There might be a issue with batteries (instead of a lipo), when drop the transmitter, there might be a dropout and you have to remind your plane (or fly with fixed id).

    Also: there are small plastics in between the batteries.
    If you put in the batteries too hard, the plastics might fold double. Then you also may get voltage issues, since the batteries are not well pushed/connected to each other.
