    I have two Yuneec ST10+ remotes. I suddenly after not using my drone for a bit started having an issue charging them. I determined that one the cable connector does not seem to stay connected unless you hold and press it inwards. The other goes through the paces. The Yuneec logo come on the screen when it powered down, the flashing blue light for the battery starts blinking blue, and also if you touch the screen a icon of a blue charging battery comes on. Yet, I left it over night at it charged 4-5%. So, I plugged the cable into my computers USB (removing the charging plug that came with the drone). And I going to check it in about an hour.

    (I have this issue with the original Yuneec Batteries and some non-Yuneec batteries, same results)

    Is there a charger I can buy that allows me to bypass plugging in the remote and just connecting the battery directly? I just getting frustrated because my drone batteries charge fine. I just can not get the remotes charged. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    If your batteries won't charge after you swapped the USB cable, it is most likely they are bad. Long storage without charging allows the voltage to drop. LiPo batteries will not really come back if the voltage has dropped too low. You can sometimes get them to charge back to full voltage, but they won't have much capacity. They will go dead again in a short time.
    You may need to consider replacing the batteries.

    Please do not fiddle around with RX or TX files. This is not needed. Those files never changed since a long time and many firmware versions.
    I guess you have a ST10+, right. In this case the firmware is here (only for the ST10+ !):
    http://download.yuneec.com/Typhoon_4K/ST10+/st10+v01b30c.zip
    Then follow the instruction for System-Update.

    Thank you everyone but after a lot of TS determined the charger and cable were bad. Yet, the power cable for a Amazon Fire Stick is the same and charged both batteries in maybe 2 hrs. Ordered a replacement for one remote because the connector for charging is not connecting properly.
