Only charge using the appropriate charger for your quad copter.
Allow the battery to cool. Only plug the quad copter in to be charged several minutes after flying.
The left joystick: Up and down regulates the height. Left and right spin the drone.
The right joystick: 360˚ directional flying including forward, backward, left and right.
Every quad copter is equipped with trim controls to fine tune the flight.
Some quads are also equipped with speed setting and light controls.
Turn on your quad copter.
Turn on your remote control. Be sure the left joystick is pushed all the way down.
Wait several seconds for the remote and quad to synchronize.
Place the quad copter on a flat surface and rapidly lift and lower the left joystick (once or twice) to establish a connection.
Takeoff: Slowly increase speed to the propellers by lifting the left joystick upwards.
Landing: Slowly decrease speed to the propellers by lowering the left joystick.
Get comfortable with taking off and landing the quad copter by practicing steps 5 and 6 several times.*Note: Move the left joystick slowly when starting out.
Directional flying: Once you are comfortable with taking off and landing the quad, start using the right joystick to maneuver the quad copter forwards, backwards, left and right.
The further the right joystick is pushed in any direction, the faster the movement will be in that direction.
If your quad is moving slightly in any direction while hovering, use your trim control buttons to establish a more even hover.
Some models offer added functions with the top “trigger” buttons. For flips, press the necessary button and choose a direction in which to flip. For video, press the necessary button to commence recording; press it again to stop the recording.
