hello, i put in my red alert lipo battery a couple of days ago, i just got it. i needed one cause my piston was stuck in the back posotion and it wouldnt move forward with my 9.6v nunchuck battery. someone told me a lipo should finish the cycle. i put the lipo in and i shot, it made a funny sound, shot again and nothing, just the sound of the trigger being pulled. i looked in my battery compartment and my fuse was in half.

did i have a bad fuse? or do i have like a short.

i checked the polarity on it and it was fine. im baffled right now lol

this is the battery

Sounds like a short.  It's common to accidentally damage the wires while closing the hand guards.  Check all wiring making sure their alright before replacing the 15A fuse.

You don't need to open the top receiver to check wiring.  There is no wire there.  I would by pass the fuse housing and connect the battery to the wire and see if it's still fire.

You can by pass the fuse and have the battery connected to turn the gearbox.  Once it's turned you can open the top receiver.
