just to be safe, charge at 1 amp on 977, before you start, go to the cell number and change to 2 cell, (It should originally read around 7 cell) then start, you will see lipo.

It's also got the wires the wrong way round for a helios (positive should be on the outside), easy enough to open up the radio and re-solder but that's not the point.

all you have to do is take a little blade to take out the connentor pins and reinsert to the right order. (don't break the tab when u do this)


It's not cheap but it is 10x better than the VRX junk ($55 piece of shxt when it worked only last 1 hr). You can do a search on the net to see if anyone has one. The link I posted is just for your reference.

Another way you can do is to see if you can buy 2 cell lipo and make it yourself. since I am not good in this department, I don't want to guide you wrong.

You may want to try these guys....I just bought a lipo for my 3pks. I charged it and I had 12.6v after about 40 minutes of actually being on I still have 12.4V. Here is the link.
