SLIPSTREAM 4-CHANNEL RC MINI QUAD-COPTER Power Switch PRE-FLIGHT Thank you for your purchase of Protocol’s Slipstream 4-Channel 2.4 Ghz Radio Controlled Mini Quad-Copter with Gyro. You are about to experience the best of what remote control flight has to offer. We strongly recommend that you take the time to read this manual thoroughly. It contains many tips and instructions on how to get the most of this aircraft and maintain it for long life. Speed Switch As with any aircraft, this is a precision flying machine. Treat it well and enjoy all the fun it has to offer, flight after flight. Throttle Forward/backward L/R Direction Stick L/R Direction Stick (Bank) Flip button SCHEMATIC Step 1: Plug the cable into the socket on the Slipstream and place it on a flat surface to allow calibration. Rotor Motor ILLUSTRATION ON QUAD-COPTER CONTROLLER Step 2: Slide power switch to “ON” Canopy (Top) Step 3: Move both throttle and direction stick to the lower left and lower right corners respectively. The LED light on Slipstream will flash indicating it is synced. Power Indicator Red (low power when flashing slow) NOTE 4-CHANNEL RADIO CONTROLLED Canopy (Bottom) MINI QUAD-COPTER FEATURING: 1. Four-Rotor design allows great speed and maneuverability for both Indoor and Outdoor use. 2. Built-in multi-axis Gyro ensures excellent stability. 3. Modular design for increased ease of maintenance. 4. 360-degree 3-dimensional stunt and tumbling function The materials and specifications stated in this instruction manual are for reference only. 1. If the Slipstream and the remote do not sync after following the Pre-Flight checklist, reverse the first two steps of the process. Turn the remote off and unplug the cable from the Slipstream. Then, turn on the remote first and then plug the cable back into the Slipstream to turn it on. Follow with Step 3. 2. Turn on the controller; if, after 30 seconds, it has not recognized the helicopter, turn off controller to retry synchronization. 3. If the Slipstream is unsteady in flight, it may not have been able to calibrate horizontally; Power down both vehicle and remote and restart pre-flight procedure. Remote Control SAFETY AND PRECAUTIONS 1. Keep small parts out of reach of children to avoid accidents. 2. The quad-copter is powerful and fast; accelerate gently to avoid damage and accidents. 3. After flying, disconnect the battery. 4. Keep the battery away from heat sources and / or fire. 5. Keep the quad-copter at a distance of at least 2 meters from yourself, others, and obstacles to prevent damage. 6. Children should operate the quad-copter only under adult supervision. 7. The remote controller batteries can not be recharged. Do not mix new batteries with old batteries or mix batteries of different types. 8. Always turn off both the transmitter and quad-copter when not in use. 9. Never attempt to short-circuit the battery terminals or the quad-copter. SLIPSTREAM CONTROL Charging the Quad-Copter’s On-Board Battery Unplug the charging cable from the aircraft canopy, connect this to the supplied USB charging cable. Insert the USB end of the charging cable into the USB port of any computer (or a USB port power adapter) to begin charging aircraft. The red LED indicator will be on during charging and will go off when the charging cycle has completed. Once fully charged, plug charging cable back into canopy. The aircraft is now powered on. 50 minutes of charging yields 6-8 minutes of flight 1. When using a computer USB port as power source, remember to unplug the USB cable prior to shutting down computer. 2. Take care to insert charging cable in correct orientation as reversing the polarity may lead to malfunction. Move the left stick to the right. Bank left Turn right Battery Cover Unscrew and remove battery cover from controller, insert 3 ‘AAA’ batteries, noting polarity indicators. Replace battery cover. 1. Install batteries carefully. 2. Do not mix old and new batteries. 3. Do not mix different types of batteries. Once you are familiar with the basics of quad-copter flight, you can try some advanced maneuvers! At a height of at least 10 feet, press the right direction stick once and you will hear it beep twice. Then move the right stick in whichever direction desired to perform a 360-degree flip in that direction. After the flip, the Slipstream will then restore to default status. Move the right stick to the left. Move the right stick to the right. Move the left stick to the left. Bank right Turn left Left Flip Right Flip GO UP Front Flip Rear Flip FORWARD 1. When charging, place product on a dry, well-ventilated surface and keep away from heat sources. 2. Always use adult supervision while charging. 3. As battery temperature is high immediately after flight, charge after cooling down for higher efficiency. 4. Do not strike or subject battery to hard impacts or sharp surfaces. 5. Do not use any other charger than that which is supplied with this item. 6. Do not use or leave battery near a heat source such as a fire or space heater; exposure to heat may result in reduced performance or in some cases dangerous conditions. 7. If battery is left in charging state for an extended period of time after being fully charged, the battery may automatically discharge. 8. Never leave the battery unattended during charging. 360° flip 360° flip Move the right stick forward. Move the left stick upward. *Slipstream uses a 3.7V 250MA Li Po Battery 360° flip 360° flip Press and release to flip. TROUBLESHOOTING Symptom Speed Switch Slipstream does not respond Move the right stick backward. Move the left stick down. 1. Do not immerse or submerge battery in water; store in a cool, dry location. 2. In order to increase battery longevity, avoid repeat charging and excessive discharging. 3. Charge battery to approximately 55% capacity prior to long-term storage. 4. If battery sees no use for extended periods of time, it is recommended that battery voltage is kept above 3V. Check monthly and recharge as needed. 5. Do not disassemble battery. 3X 1.5V AAA Batteries GO DOWN BACK Possible Cause Potential Solution 1. Communication between controller and aircraft was not synchronized during synchronization effort. 2. Battery power depleted on either aircraft, controller, or both. Response to 1. Controller battery power nearly depleted. control inputs intermittent 2. Aircraft antenna is damaged. or erratic The Slipstream will not hover or strafe correctly 1. The aircraft was not on level ground during synchronization. 2. Trim settings are incorrect. Note: While fine-tuning flight characteristics, maintain constant position and altitude. -5- -6- 1. To synchronize, turn on controller, then turn on aircraft and place it on level ground. Move throttle stick all the way forward, then all the way back. 2. Charge aircraft and/or replace batteries in controller. 1. Replace batteries in controller. 2. Repair antenna. 1. Re-synchronize aircraft and controller. 2. Reset the trim buttons on the controller and re-trim flight controls. Thank you for your purchase of Protocol's Slipstream 4-Channel RC Mini Quad-Copter!
