Insert fully charged LiPo battery into
theunderside of the drone, then connect the
battery to back of the drone. (See next page.)
Place the drone on level surface for
calibration.
BASIC FLIGHT MANEUVERS
Turn on controller. (Before initial use, install
new batteries into controller. See reverse.)
Once lights turn solid, drone is ready to fly.
FLIGHT CONTROLS
To make flying easier, place the drone on the ground in front of you
with the drone facing away from you (green blades forward). You
should be facing the same way the drone is facing.

Once a stunt has been initiated, DO NOT adjust Throttle or press any other controls until the stunt has been completed.
LAND
BARREL ROLL LEFT OR RIGHT
While flying forward (or reverse), tap the STUNT button.
Press LAND to automatically land.
Alternatively you can use the left thumb stick to land the drone. Hold the left
thumb stick all the way down for about 2.5 seconds after the drone has
safely reached the ground, and the motors will stop spinning.
AUTO AND MANUAL FLIGHT MODES

AUTO mode is best for new
pilots. Begin by pressing the
LAUNCH button for takeoff.
The drone will hold its altitude,
and gradually fly up or down
when you press up or down on

FLIP IN 4 DIRECTIONS
1 Bring the drone to a mid-air hover without flying in any
direction. Remove finger from the RIGHT thumb stick.
2 While hovering, tap and hold the STUNT button.
3 Then quickly tap the RIGHT thumb stick in the direction
you want the drone to flip.
CAUTION!
The drone should be flying at least 6 feet in the air with a minimum clearance of 6 feet in all directions before
attempting stunt functions.
LAUNCH
FLIGHT MODE
L
MANUAL mode is better for
experienced pilots. When the left
thumb stick is pushed all the way
up the drone will spin its motors
as fast as it can while maintaining
stability, and when the left thumb
stick is pushed all the way down
the motors will stop spinning
completely.
If for any reason you need to immediately stop
the drone, hold down the stunt button (for drones
that don't have a stunt button, use the video
button) and move both thumb sticks down and
away from the center of the controller.
REPLACING DAMAGED BLADES
Use the included
screwdriver to unscrew
the propeller, then pull up
on propeller to detach.
Match A propellers to A
legs and B propellers to B
legs. Replace screws and
tighten. See image to right.

When the controller is OFF, press and hold
the flight mode button, LAUNCH/LAND
button, and POWER button for three
seconds to toggle between mode 1 and
mode 2.
FAILSAFE GUIDE
Mode 2 (default, most commonly used)
LEFT thumb stick makes the drone go
up/down, and rotate
clockwise/counter-clockwise.
RIGHT thumb stick makes the drone fly
forward, backward, left, and right.
X
When the drone turns
upside down, the motors
will stop spinning.
When the drone goes out of
range of the controller, it will
automatically land itself in
its current position. If the
controller comes back in to
range before the drone
lands, it is possible to cancel
this automatic landing by
pressing up on the throttle.
When the drone's battery is
at 10% or less, the LEDs on
the drone will begin to blink
rapidly, and a tone is played
continuously on the
controller until the
controller and drone are
turned off.
When the drone's
battery is depleted, the
drone will automatically land itself in its
current position. This
automatic landing
cannot be interrupted
with the controller.
Mode 1 (used in Australia and most
Asian & European countries)
LEFT thumb stick makes the drone fly
forward/backward, and rotate
clockwise/counter-clockwise.
RIGHT thumb stick makes the drone go
up/down, and fly left and right.
If the drone detects that no
input has been received by
the controller for 15
seconds, the drone will
automatically land itself in
its current position..

reach (such as rooftops or trees) or from any location that poses a safety hazard. Never fly drone at night.
Keep drone in sight at all times during operation. Discontinue operation immediately if drone flies out of
your field of view. Do not fly near spectators or animals. Keep spinning rotors away from fingers, hair, eyes
and other body parts. Always launch from a flat surface. Never leave drone unattended while it is turned
on. Read all enclosed information before operating.

Press the 4 LED’s into the drone arms and ensure that the green LED’s are
attached to the curved front arms and red LED’s are connected to the rear
straight arms. Try not to move the wires connecting the LEDs too much, as the
soldered connections to the flight board are very delicate.
STEP EIGHT
Attach the four arm covers to the main body ensuring no wires protrude from
the sides. You must connect the hook of the arm covers to the motor housing
before easing into place. The front arm covers are curved and contain the green
LED windows. The red LED covers go in the rear.
