    Is there something wrong with my series 1 battery?

    Ive just noticed, when i start playing with my MERV witha full battery i dont get much power and the MERV is slow, but after like a minute my Merv drives normal with more power. And also ive noticed there is a burnt rubber kind of smell coming of the pack, Is one of the cells in the battery dead or something?

    Do you have other batteries to compare performance? If so you'll be able to determine if the battery is failing or if it is an electronics issue.

    I have had that issue before. My battery was bad. It only happened after I went brushless. Is your merv brushless?
    This will TOTALLY work, saw a guy on YouTube do it
