Looking for any recurring problems associated with the EC120 to include main transmission.

Battery..
The original nicad has bugger all capacity.We've had hot starts from the battery dropping below 16 volts on start, the pilot sees it going hot but cant shut it off because the voltage is too low to activate the idle stop release.
Mak sure its a good battey...

EC120 has a few reccuring defects as the engine mounts or the MGB conical mounts which have a tendancy to corrode.Otherwise, skids rivets needs oversizing after 1000rs or so. It's really a good helicopter, quiet and easy to maintain and to fly.
