The battery charger included with the drone has been designed to safely
charge the Li-Po battery.
 Mishandling of Li-Po batteries can result in a fire, personal injury, and
/or property damage.
 By handling, charging or using the included Li-Po battery you assume all
risks associated with lithium batteries.
 If at any time the battery begins to balloon or swell, discontinue use

Building the Drone
Before starting to assemble the drone, please ensure you have all the parts
listed in the diagram below:
1.
5.
2.
6.
3.
7.
1. Start with part 8 (Control Box), and
attach the main frame piece (Part 7)
above it, following the orientation
shown in the diagram. The Li-Po battery
can then be placed within the space on
the frame piece. Ensure the wire for the
battery is able to easily reach the power
connector on the Control box, if not
please remove the battery, turn it over,
and try again.
2. Use the 4 x 1 blocks (Part 2) to attach
the Propeller blocks (Part 6) to the
frame, as shown in the image. Please
note 2 motors spin clockwise and 2
anticlockwise, as such the image below
should be followed to ensure the
correct propeller is fitted at each
corner. Once all four propellers are
secured using the 4x1 blocks above,
and below, four 2x1 blocks (Part 1)
should be assembled into a leg and
attached to the underside of each
corner of the drone.

8.
3. A cover for the battery should then be
assembled using the 5x1 blocks (Parts 3 +
4). The blocks without the centre pegs
(Part 3) should be put to the outside with
the standard 5x1 blocks (Part 4) should
be on the inside
4. The Strap should then be attached. This
is used to help hold the drone together
after a low impact collision
5. The Propeller guard should then be
eased into position. The pins on each
corner should be clipped into the slots
on the outside of the propeller unit.
Please Note the flat sections of the
guard should be positioned to the front
and back of the drone.

Transmitter Diagram
How to change the Propellers
The propellers can easily be removed and replaced, simply by pulling
them off the motor spindle, and pushing a replacement propeller
back on.
It is important for the correct blade to be
placed on the correct motor or the aircraft
will not fly correctly. Each blade is marked
with an A or B on the top to indicate which
motor it corresponds to.
Preparing for First Flight
1. Make sure both the transmitter and aircraft batteries are sufficiently
charged.
2. Find a suitable place to fly the aircraft, away from people, buildings and
vehicles.
3. Make sure the throttle stick is centred before turning on the transmitter.

Binding of Radio Transmitter & Receiver
1. Connect the lead from the battery to the socket on the Control Box.
2. Turn on the controller.
3. The controller will beep twice, and the red LED will flash. If the unit has
automatically paired, the lights on both the controller and the drone will
be constantly on, if the lights are flashing, press the left stick up to bind
to the drone.
4. The gyroscope should then be calibrated by
sitting the drone on a flat surface, facing the
controller, and then holding both joysticks
diagonally downwards and inwards for a few
seconds. When the lights stop flashing the
drone is calibrated.
5. With the drone still sat on a flat surface, hold
both joysticks diagonally downwards and
outwards for a few seconds, This will unlock the
drone, and start the propellers spinning
6. The aircraft can be flown using either the radio control supplied or by
using the App on a smart device. For details on flying with the App, see
page 14.

Aircraft Functions and Features
One Key Return
The aircraft can be made to return in a fixed
direction by pressing and holding the return
button. When the aircraft is turned on it will
remember the direction it is oriented and
upon activation of the Smart Return feature it
will fly back in that direction.
NOTE: Be careful to orientate the aircraft with
the rear tail facing towards you if you want the aircraft to fly back towards you
using the smart return mode. You can retake full control of the aircraft at any
time by moving the control sticks. The aircraft will not return to where it
started, it will simply move in the direction it was orientated when turned on.
Headless Flight
The aircraft can be made to fly in Headless
Flight by pressing the headless flight button.
This will make the aircraft fly without a front
or rear. It will fly in the orientation of the
pilot. If you move the right joystick right, the
aircraft will fly right. Move the joystick left
and it will fly left. Move the joystick forwards
and the aircraft will fly away from you and pull
it back to make it fly towards you. It does not matter which direction the
drone is facing in headless mode.
