Cautions :
1. Don’t use or charge a battery if it shows signs of swelling, pierced, or damaged in any way.

3. Don’t charge the battery with current input above 1A. Never overcharge.
Tips:
1.Flying errors may happen after flights, a CALIBRATION and some TRIM WORK will fix the problem.
2.Motors may heat up if being misused. Take a 10 min break between flights to cool them down.
3.Drone weight is less than 0.5lb, FAA registration is not required.

TRAINING:

Before Flight:

1. Ensure batteries are fully charged, no defects on propellers; Connect the battery to the drone, the LED lights flash quickly then slow down within seconds.

2. Make sure the drone is put on a flat surface.

3. Paring: Turn on the controller, the indicator flashes slowly. Push the left stick up and down, the indicator and LED lights turn to still simultaneously, then paring is succeeded.

4. Calibration: Push both control sticks to the right bottom and hold them on, the LED lights flash and stop within seconds, calibration is done.

Operation Practice:

1.Switch the speed mode to low speed at the very beginning.

2.Get use to the throttle stick slowly until you can understand how it works.

3.Get use to the trim buttons until you can adjust the drone to be close to hovering.

4.If you can’t tell the front of the drone, try to play under headless mode at first.

5.Try one key return : Remember it only works under headless mode, and needs to set the drone’s head in front before entering into headless mode.

6.Try 3D Flip: Press the function button and push the right stick to any direction. Make sure the height is enough to perform a flip.

Fantastic drone especially for starters! Key points you should know before making a purchase:Pros:1. Friendly for beginners/starters. Why? It has one touch return and it has headless control mode which means you do not need to know where the front of the drone is.2. Easily pairs with the software and the controller. Connects to my Wifi without any problems.3. It has 2 speed settings, one is slow which is good for beginners.4. Very durable. After a few crashes and hits among walls, trees, etc. it is still up and running. This was really built to last.5. I will say I was impressed with the manual (documentation). It was better than most manuals I have read. Easy to follow and understand. It has the proper English instructions.Cons:1. Lacks altitude hold to shoot better quality pictures and videos.2. Not too stable enough when flying especially outdoors on a windy day. Drones with 6 axis gyro has better stability.3. Limited play time. I can reach 5-6…

Doesn’t Really have a 720p camera! There’s a bunch of hours I’ll never get back… So if all I had wanted was a drone without a camera, I’d be rating this higher probably, though this is the first day I tried it.Very little instruction in how to get it all working, but I managed. HOWever…The big selling point for me was using it to get aerial views with the 720p camera. 720p is 1280×720 which is a reasonable number of pixels. However, you can ONLY get video off the thing by using their DROCON wifi app with a smartphone, and it will ONLY record vid at 640×480 resolution, which is less than a third the claimed resolution. I find it hard to believe I’m the only one mentioning this as a negative in the reviews, but I wish someone had done it for me to read.I’ll add a small screen grab of the “get info” from a file I just downloaded off the DROCON app to my mac. Pretty unequivocally NOT 720p. Now who knows, maybe the CAMERA is 720p and the app restricts it or something, but if you can’t get 720p video out of it in any way…

Bare Bone Instructions Very dissatisfied with the instructions. They are bare bones and frustrating. For example, the manual tells the user to turn the drone on or off, but does not tell one how. There is no “on-off” switch on the drone that I can find – it appears that the only way is to remove the battery. It also talks about “headless mode”, but does not explain what that is or how it differs from “regular mode”. Furthermore, it talks about “the photos and videos taken by the camera…”, but yet I find nothing about a camera and its operation in the instructions. Also points me to a website “service@drocon.co.uk”, but I can’t find that site. I can not speak the the quality and operation of the device as I am still laboring through the instructions.
