Micro Quad Flyer
QuadBert's Avatar
My best advice is stop messing with the trim and just put everything to center.

The quad will not be stable below 4 or 5 feet due to ground effect. The wind from the props bounces off the ground and blows randomly back up into the quad, making it unstable. Also, keep it oriented so the lights are towards you, so that right stick is right motion and left stick is left motion, etc., until you have a lot more experience. I've been flying for years and still like to take off and land with the copter facing away from me.

Find some open space with lots of soft grass, like a soccer field, to practice in. Avoid pavement and concrete.

Like someone else said, when you take off, pop it up 6 or 7 feet into the air. That way you get it above the ground effects and prop wash, and also the higher you are, the more time you have to recover if you make a mistake. The next step is learning to bring it down slowly.

If you're worried about breaking it, buy a relatively inexpensive v252 micro-quad with a prop guard from MassiveRC, or a Hubsan X4 somewhere, and fly that until you get the hang of it, then go back to the more expensive quad. You'll suddenly find it behaves much better once your fingers and reflexes are a little more trained.

I think this thing is promising. Glue some foam onto that radio hatch. Also add a few dabs of hot glue or epoxy onto the edges of those LED covers. I would prefer hot glue because it should be easier to remove.

I ordered mine on March 21st, at which date, Banggood had. according to it's website, sold 21.

Since then, the re-stock date has repeatedly been put back, and the latest email I've received from Banggood, after I inquired about my order, claims re-stocking on 12th April, and sales have reached 87.

Anyone thinking of ordering now should hold off 'til Banggood can confirm that they definitely have stocks, otherwise they are receiving interest on roughly 20,000 GBP, ($30000 USD).

Quite a return on your investment for something they don't have as yet.

Incorrect, if you look at your order email it says this:

Notes:
Because you only pay for items when we ship them to you, you won't be charged for any items that you cancel.


So no payment is taken until it ships!

The money gets transferred yes once you place the order!! This isn't like it's the first time I've bought from BG and the item was out of stock!! Sometimes they even refund you the money if the items remains out of stock for a long time but Jaskel here might have a funny Paypal account!!
