Yesterday when going out for a ride with the drone, I couldn't turn on the controller. It just didn't turn on, none of the lights, not even the battery. I figured it was discharged (despite having left the controller charged the last time I used it) and put it to charge the battery. The problem persists as in the following videos. When contacting the assistance here in Brazil, there is no solution because it is already out of the warranty period.

G'day mate. I haven't seen this before. It could be the controller BUT it may also be the USB C connector on your charger. Have you tried any other USB C cables?

Good luck.

Yes i tried. After a lot of searching without finding, I suspected the controller's internal battery. I opened it and apparently the battery is damaged, with one of the terminals oxidized and a little liquid leakage. Now I'm looking for another battery to replace.
