trim dial counter-clockwise to fly the dragonfly in a clockwise circle.
NOTE: Adjusting the trim can make the dragonfly’s tail rotor spin even when not
flying.
Tips and tricks
Hold parallel to the
ground to launch
Do not tilt up
Do not tilt down
6. On the controller, push the right stick (directional) to the left to turn left, or push
the stick to the right to turn right.
Use smaller movements on
the controller to make the
dragonfly turn more gradually.
To make the dragonfly turn
more quickly, push the stick
further in the desired direction.
Trimming
Use the trim dial to adjust the straight line flight of the dragonfly. If the dragonfly
naturally steers to the right, slowly turn the trim dial in a clockwise direction to
adjust the steer.
• When launching the dragonfly, hold it level
by the middle of the body and gently push it
forward as you would with a paper airplane,
while holding the left stick (throttle control)
at about half-power. If it starts to fly upwards,
release some of the power so that it stays level.
• Avoid making turns while the nose is pointed
upwards, or the dragonfly will dive-bomb.
• The tail ribbon is ideal as a training aid,
especially when in small spaces, and helps
restrict flying speed.
• When flying the dragonfly outdoors, take
note that the calmest times of the day are
usually at dawn and at dusk. If it is a bit
windy outdoors, avoid flying the dragonfly at
wind speeds higher than 4 mph (1.75 km/h).
• With more practice and expertise, it will
also be possible to make the dragonfly take
off into the air from the ground. Place the
dragonfly on a smooth and flat surface that
is long enough to allow it room to take off
(for example, a hallway).
Tip: Expert mode - To make FlyTech
Dragonfly perform a spiraling maneuver,
release the left stick and push right or
left on the right stick, depending on
the direction you want the dragonfly
to spiral.
Tip: Attaching the tail ribbon to FlyTech
Dragonfly’s tail allows for greater
maneuverability and slower flight speed.
This is beneficial in smaller flying spaces.

Replacing the wings
FAQ
You can replace the original wings on your dragonfly if they become damaged or
you want it to have a different look. A spare set of wings is included in the FlyTech
Dragonfly package. To replace the wings, do the following:
The following is a list of frequently asked questions regarding the FlyTech
Dragonfly.
1. Make sure the controller and the dragonfly are turned off.
2. Remove the old pair of wings. There are
two sets of wings on the dragonfly. Gently
remove the first pair of wings by first
pulling the wing rods out from the sockets.
Then, pull the wings off the hook at the end
of the body area.
Q: My dragonfly won’t fly straight when I am flying it indoors! …
A: Your problem might be due to indoor sources of air currents keeping the
dragonfly from flying straight. Try turning off fans and closing air conditioning
vents. If there are open windows, try closing them to avoid creating drafts.
Q: My dragonfly won’t fly straight when I am flying it outdoors! …
A: You might be flying the dragonfly in conditions that are too windy…Try to
find a location that is sheltered from the wind, such as between buildings or in
a walled-off courtyard. For optimal operation, avoid flying the dragonfly in wind
speeds higher than 4mph (1.75 km/h).
Repeat for the second pair of wings. Be careful not to touch any broken edges.
3. Install the new pair as illustrated, by
reversing the instructions for removing the
damaged wings. Hook the rear part of the
first pair of wings onto the hook at the end
of the body, and then slide the wing rods
into their sockets. Repeat for the second
pair of wings.
NOTE: Test the dragonfly after installing the new wings. If the dragonfly cannot
fly in a straight line, or experiences difficulty when airborne, try swapping the
new left and right wings.
Replacing the propeller
You can replace the original rotor propeller on your dragonfly if the original one
becomes damaged. A spare propeller is included in the FlyTech Dragonfly package.
To replace the damaged rotor propeller:
1. Make sure the controller and
the dragonfly are turned off
before removing the propeller.
2. Using a pair of pliers, grasp the
damaged rotor propeller and
pull it off the axle as indicated in the diagram.
3. Insert the new rotor propeller into the axle carefully, making sure it is secure. Be
careful not to damage the motor.
4. Turn the propeller manually to make sure it does not snag on the tail of the
dragonfly.
Q: The tail rotor propeller on my dragonfly keeps spinning, and I can’t stop it! …
A: You have probably turned the trim dial. The trim dial controls the rotor speed.
Adjust the trim by slowly turning the trim dial on the controller until the rotor
stops spinning.
Q: My dragonfly stops working when it gets farther away! …
A: Your dragonfly is most likely out of range for the controller. The recommended
range for controlling your dragonfly is 50 feet (15 meters) or less from the
controller. To fully take advantage of the flight control, make sure the antenna on
the controller is fully extended.
Q: My dragonfly won’t stay up, even after charging! …
A: The batteries in the controller might be getting weak, in which case, you will
need to change the batteries. The batteries in the controller will usually last
about ten flight-recharge cycles. You should always turn the controller and the
dragonfly off when not in use.

Adjust the trim by slowly turning the trim dial on the controller until the rotor
stops spinning.
Q: My dragonfly stops working when it gets farther away! …
A: Your dragonfly is most likely out of range for the controller. The recommended
range for controlling your dragonfly is 50 feet (15 meters) or less from the
controller. To fully take advantage of the flight control, make sure the antenna on
the controller is fully extended.
Q: My dragonfly won’t stay up, even after charging! …
A: The batteries in the controller might be getting weak, in which case, you will
need to change the batteries. The batteries in the controller will usually last
about ten flight-recharge cycles. You should always turn the controller and the
dragonfly off when not in use.
