Default Mamba + 3S lipo - Only getting 2 beeps (Damaged lipo w/ pictures)

So yesterday i got a new 3s Lipo..
  • First time i turned it on, got the 3 beeps.
  • Ran the car, battery fell out of the car and got banged up.
  • Plugged it back in and it worked..
  • But now i notice when ever i turn the ESC on, i only get 2 beeps.

Picture of battery after removing stock shrink wrap:



Here it is now. I got it double shrink wrapped. I also got a Velcro battery strap instead of the stock one that came loss on me.



Is the battery done for?
Anyone know how/who to repair it?

Sucks because i just paid 150.00 for this battery and i messed it up the same day. 8-(

Did you check what the voltage of the pack is after it fell out?

your maybe not programing it properly. I've had some trouble with my 5700system.

how long have you had it.

does it beep three times with another cell.
does ut beep two times with another cell
change it to brush setup then try lipo

change you're setup around on your pc and try to get the three beep back. then peak you're new lithium cell out and check if you get the three beep back. if not you damaged you're cell..


good luck dowg

When ever i am charging it the Hyperion peaks it out at around 12.6v

My other 3s Lipo's havent arrived yet, so i currently only have 1 3s Lipo.

I originally got 3 beeps the first time, but then it flew off the car.
After that i was getting NiMH beeps, so i changed some things around on the PC.
Then i was getting 2 beeps...
I'll play around with the settings on the PC again and see what happens.

But as for right now. I shipped it out to a guy that repairs lipo's. He is going to straight it up and check out the cell's to make sure they are all working. But i should have my 2 other Lipo's this week.

I will update as soon as i find out.
