I've had a minor mishap not quite a crash. one of my first times flying I lost GPS at a low altitude and it started drifting away (got nervous) so I slowly brought it down manually and it tipped over and one propeller went into the ground for a second or so. Is that considered a crash? just to be clear this was an extremely minor incident lol...

Other then that I have had many flights since then with no issues at all then this camera issue has started out of no where... I'm very careful with the gimbal too as I've read how sensitive they are. Where are the rubber pins u speak of? maybe something got out of line while transporting it? You can see the side to side wobble... frustrating.

Hi, "rubber pins", i do not know if the name is correct, however the gimbal should have 4 rubbers pin to manage the vibrations, check if the rubbers are still on.

Bye

How did you contact Xiro/Zero ????

I've emailed both: support@zerouav.com, tony@zerouav.com = no reply

Did you try to use the chat in https://www.facebook.com/xirodrone ?
Usually they answer and try to give a solution/direction. I think the quadcopter is very very young and the support is young too......

Had to fire up Facebook [after 7 years] and got a response. So thanks for looking out for me

Now waiting to hear if GeekBuying is/has shipped my order [Xplorer V]
Hopefully, they're an authorized distributor and actually have inventory.
"xirodrone" says he knows of a store with stock, but I've got 700 tied up at this Geek joint.

Anybody upgrade the antennas for not necessarily longer distance but more stability (stronger signal)? If so, how did you do it?

Compliance version configuration


Does anyone know how to turn off the compliance configuration? Just discovered from the manual that the remote control settings can be changed to FCC or CE.

Second Flight and strange error message (during the flight)


Hi, just to share my experience, i was flying on the top of an ancient tower then at the end of the flight, i received the following message "remove gimbal clamp" (recorded flight)..... First of all before the take off i made a compass calibration and i did not see any power lines or metal structures in the area. The horrible thing was that for a moment all the data went crazy (see second screenshot)..... However i did not see any strange movement of the quad and it landed safely just one minute later the error message.
I do not like to receive other messages like this.
Any idea/solution to avoid them?

You can not select, how will that work yourself?
Xiro follows alone the GPS of the smartphone.
Has he saved the Home Point?
Zero should even make a video where the functions are described and how to proceed exactly.

How can you see that he saves the homepoint? If you mean that if i push the return home button he will do that.

which you see in the map, Automatic / Dynamic Home Point.
You always have to wait long until this point can be seen on the map.
