I know this has been asked before but here goes. I just got my Breeze and Controller out of the box today. Plugged in the controller to charge it. BTW, the instructions and description of chargingn for lack of a better word, just plain SUCK. Well after looking here on the forum I find that the blue power button should be lit solid when fully charged after blinking while charging. Gee, would that be so hard to describe in the instructions?

Anyway this thing has been blinking blue for close to 8 hours now. That can't possibly be right, can it? Does initial charging REALLY take more than 8 hours? I need some help here before I start going through the PITA process of calling Yuneec.

So I gave up after 8 hours+ and decided to unplug from my computer and try a wall USB port to charge. We'll see what happens.

As you may have seen, there were reports on this forum about defective units that would indeed not charge. But I believe they were also reports about the first charge taking a full night...
Report back what happens with yours after you had it on the charger for 12 to 14 hours. There's no harm with just waiting another day or night, I hope

Ok, almost 24 hours plugged in and the blue light is still blinking. Someone said a firmwear update solved this so I'll try that. If that's a no go calling Yuneec is next. Mine has the same 2017 build date as theirs so....maybe. I'm not feeling warm and fuzzy though.

Update. Well, that's pretty amazing. Updated the firmwear to 1.39, plugged in and less than 10 minutes later a solid blue power light. But...now every so often the ABXY buttons flash quickly. Not a timed event, it's random. What's with that? Part of the new firmwear?

This should not be so complicated. Stupid. I hope the dang drone will fly and not fly away or crash and self destruct the first time using this device.

I had the same issue here. Tried out-of-the-box charging under firmware 1.22, but after hours still no solid blue power light. After updating to 1.39 a solid blue power button within a quarter of an hour.

Thanks!
