Beginners Hints / Tips Cheat Sheet

FLYING

Find a good space with no wind and soft landings, If windy, go into headwind, careful above tree-line

Keep blades squeezed on tight, and free of fractures, hair, grass etc. Check start / stop evenly

Get used to holding a steady low height, eg 2 -3 metres

Keep all  trims on Zero whilst learning. Imbalance is often due to blade damage or air currents (very near ground, or in a small room)

Expect drift with air currents, especially indoor (gets turbulent) or near ground

Try take off from hand to get a feel for throttle sensitivity, and avoid “ground effect”

In mode 2, fly directly away from self, for natural, intuitive orientation on right stick….

the drone will match F-B, L-R movement exactly

Keep within good visibility range

Lights flashing during flight: ~15  seconds~ battery warning – its time to re-charge or pit-stop!

FIREFLY

Best app is gx-ufo (2016 version)

“return” feature will be wind affected

if non – sync after heavy crash – please try this – remove battery, place upright in oven for 20 -30 mins at 50-60 degrees to re-settle components

place close to phone after changing battery to speed up wifi auto-connection.

other Wifi hotspots will affect auto-connect time,

The further away it is, the more prone to wifi disconnect due to other hotspots

MICRODRONE CAMERA

In low/no wind, try using trims for gentle steering….for smoother video
