RADIO CONTOL TRANSMITTER • BATTERY INSTALLATION
Unscrew the screw holding the battery lid to the
body. Then lightly pull the clip down to pull the lid
away from the transmitter body.
Insert 3 x AA batteries into the battery compartment,
making sure to match the polarities. Then replace the
lid and firmly tighten the screw to secure the battery
compartment.
NOTICE
Please use 3 AA batteries. Use the polarity markings to install in the
correct orientation. Do not mix batteries of different types.
CAUTION
If the Radio Control Transmitter will not be used for extended periods of time, please remove the batteries.
WARNING
Please check the AA batteries routinely. If the AA batteries are left within the Radio Control Transmitter,
potential leakage and/or corrosion may occur, which can damage the transmitter and create a fire hazard.
CHARGING THE NEPTUNE II DRONE
At the rear of the
drone, pull the upper
and lower battery
clips away from unit.
Slide out the battery.
1. At the rear of the drone, pull the upper and lower battery clips away from unit. Slide out the battery.
2. Connect the USB charging cable and the battery.

Neptune II now. Use this charge completely before charging the
Neptune II battery for the first time.
ATTACHING YOUR SMARTPHONE to the PHONE HOLDER
Your Neptune II Camera Drone comes with a plastic smartphone holder equipped with a compression clip
that lets you view the Neptune II’s footage as it flies. This is done via the ODY Neptune II app that you can
download for free. Please refer to the ODY Neptune II App Menu & Guide included in your package for further
instructions on how to utilize the free app with your drone.
Take your smartphone and insert it into the clip until it has a secure hold. Attach the smartphone holder
to your remote control transmitter, start up the ODY Neptune II App and you are good to go!
PAIR THE UNIT WITH THE REMOTE CONTROL & START TO FLY
Step 1: Switch on the Drone. The LED lights will start to blink.
Step 2: Turn on the Remote Transmitter. Its power light will illuminate. Wait 5-7
seconds for the electronic gyro to stabilize*.
Step 3: Push the throttle (left) stick up to the 12 o'clock position and then down to the 6
o'clock position. As the remote transmitter searches for the Drone, the power light on
the transmitter blinks rapidly.
Step 4: Connection is complete once the power light and the LEDs on the Drone stop
blinking. The video feed will also come up on the screen. You're ready to fly!
NOTICE
*Be sure to place the quadcopter on a level surface to ensure a proper and neutral
alignment of the gyro.

RECEIPT PLACEMENT FOR WARRANTY
Adhere your purchase receipt to this
section for future reference:
TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS
Check to make sure the power switch is in the ON position. If set to OFF, move to the ON position.
Transmitter won’t
power on
Check to make sure the batteries are installed correctly. Check to make sure they match the polarity markings.
If the batteries are installed correctly, they may be exhausted. Replace with new and fresh batteries.
If your Drone can't be controlled accurately:
Lack of control
• Make sure the radio control transmitter is set to the ON position
• Make sure the battery on the vehicle is installed correctly
• The vehicle may fly erratically if wind conditions are too strong. Fly the vehicle under calm conditions.
• Make sure the radio control transmitter has paired correctly with the vehicle. If not, power down the
vehicle and the radio control and start over.
If the unit fails to go up in altitude or goes up too slowly, try the following:
Failure to
gain altitude
Avoid crash landings!
The rotor speed may be too slow to lift the quadcopter sufficiently. Make sure the throttle is being raised
sufficiently. If the unit still does not go up or goes up too slowly, the battery of the quadcopter might be too
discharged for safe or satisfactory operation. Charge the battery before continuing to fly the unit.
Landing the unit takes skill and practice. If your Drone comes down too fast, it could be damaged. Ease the Drone down
by slowly lowering the throttle (left) stick until the unit is safely on the ground.
TRIM ADJUSTMENT ON THE RADIO CONTROL TRANSMITTER
Correct trim adjustment is required for error and erratic-free flying of the quadcopter. The adjustment is simple to do
on the radio control transmitter, but it requires some patience. Please follow the instructions precisely. For best results,
move the throttle up and raise the quadcopter approximately 2-3 feet (0.5-1 meter) in altitude.
If the quadcopter moves by itself slowly or quickly to the left or right:
Press the trim control for banking incrementally in the opposite direction of movement.
If the quadcopter moves by itself slowly or quickly around its own axis:
Press the trim control for rotation incrementally in the opposite direction of movement.
If the quadcopter moves by itself slowly or quickly forwards or backwards:
Press the trim control for forwards and backwards flight incrementally in the opposite direction of movement.
