Default Help! Need a 3.7V Flyzone power plug for a micro biplane...

Need the female plug leading to the brick. I thought I had a bad brick I could rob one off of but I cannot find it. Are these commercially available?

I know it is the plug because I was able to get sporadic power by fiddling with the battery, but not enough to fly with.

The brick is in my stick and tissue pup. I could buy a whole new brick but $39.95 is kinda high.

God bless you. Then the pup shall fly again. I think that brick and its plug had flown over 150x in the original Flyzone SE-5. Their plugs do wear out. In the future I will stop salvaging bricks from wrecks! Tain't worth it.

Ok I could not wait so I drove down to my local Hobby USA, waited for the noon, Sunday opening, and the guru there found a female plug mated to an LED for lighting, a pair for only $3.95 and all I had to do was cut off the LED. Asked if the polarity would be correct as to color coding and the guru said he was "pretty sure" it would be. I spliced it in, red to red and black to black, soldered the wires, whoops the polarity was reversed! REDO!

The pup is back!
