    $50 of Awesomeness, November 23, 2012

    Let me preface by saying that I own around 40 RC helicopter ranging from high end $3000 gassers to cheap $25 fp toys. This was my first quad. I bought this at the 49.99 price point and have no regrets even though they are now 39.99

    This has been the best $50 that I have spent in a long time. There are so many things going for this kit, where do I begin.

    The Good
    -Incredibly durable. I have crashed countless times from goofing around and flying indoors and have yet to cause any permanent damage. Even though this is a cheap product they made good choices in durable materials.
    -Very stable and easy to fly. My wife has no experience with helicopters, but I was able to get her to try this out in our living room.
    -Stable in outdoor conditions. I was surprised at the ability to fly this in light-breeze conditions.
    -Payload capacity. For fun, I strapped an iPod nano to the bottom to shoot video. This weighs 35 grams and the quad seemed to be able to handle it.
    -It can do flips! Nuf said.

    The Bad
    – Not a whole lot to say but…..
    -I had some glitching problems, but rerouted the antenna through the canopy, and they seemed to go away.
    -Battery life is better than the similar sized fp helicopters but with as much fun as these are, it always seems short. Spare batteries can be had for about $7.

    In conclusion, after buying one of these I bought five more at the new lower price and plan on giving them away as Christmas gifts this year. This product should be up there as one of the best toys of the year.

    Revised instructions – UPDATED, November 16, 2013

    ***** UPDATED Jan. 11, 2014 **********

    I had a couple of people tell me that they could not get their copter transmitters to connect. After playing with the sequence a bit, we found that on some copters (not all… go figure) the TX should be turned on and initialized BEFORE the copter gets to the gyro initialization process – which makes it even more important to be ready to set it on a level surface before plugging the battery in. Anyway, this sequence change seems to address the problem some of the copters were having. The instructions have been updated to reflect this change.

    Now back to your regularly scheduled review…

    *****************************************

    I’ve been in R/C for 30+ years, and was very involved in R/C helis. This was my first quadcopter, and have enjoyed it very much. The hardest thing about this copter is getting it out of the box. Lots of cheap fun, and definitely a gateway drug to the hobby-grade multi-rotor platforms. But as many have commented, the instructions are horrible. So, I wrote this revised instruction manual when I gave these as Christmas presents.

    Revised Instructions for QuadCopter –

    The original instructions are written in horrible Chinglish, but you’re welcome to read them if you want. Plus, they have pictures.

    As a note – the instruction refer to the default transmitter control mode as “Mode 1”, where the left stick controls the throttle&rudder, and the right stick controls the forward&aft, aileron left&right. In the real R/C world, this is called “Mode 2”, (and most of us in thew US fly in this mode), so the folks writing the original instructions got it backwards. In any event, don’t worry about it. It initializes in true Mode 2 so you don’t need to change it… unless you’re used to true Mode 1 – then you’re on your own to try and use the original instructions to figure out how to switch it.

    Batteries:

    1. You’ll need to charge the little silver rectangle LiPoly battery using the USB charger that’s in the package with the replacement props. It’ll take about an hour (or less). You can plug it in to any USB port or USB phone charger. I charge it while placing it on a plate since I don’t always trust these Chinese charger/battery combinations to not catch fire, but I’m paranoid.

    2. Install (4) AA batteries (not supplied) in the transmitter (TX).

    Once the LiPo battery is charged, and the TX has batteries, you’re ready to go.

    Pre-flight:

    1. There is no off-on switch on the copter. When you plug the battery in, the quadcopter is “on”. Plugging it in snaps it into the red connector and two plastic latches that hold the battery in. These latches are semi-annoying and really over-kill, but they will keep the battery from flying out if you do a series of fast pirouetting spins. I’ll leave it to you whether you want to snip the barbs off or not. You may want to wait to do so until you’ve flown it a bit.

    Before you plug the battery in, you need to be ready to set it down on a flat surface quickly, because you’ll need to sync the controller before it goes into the gyro initialization sequence. It’s handy to have a table nearby to set it down, sync the TX, allow the gyros to initialize, and once you have a solid red LED on the copter (and solid blue on the TX), move it to its take-off and landing zone.(LZ) So, ready, set, here we go…

    1. Plug the battery in to the belly of the quadcopter. The red LED on the copter starts flashing about twice a second. Set it down on a flat surface.

    2. Turn on the TX. It beeps and the blue LED flashes rapidly. Move the throttle (left stick) all the way down, then all the way up (TX will beep), and then all the way down again. Now the blue LED will go solid “on”, and red copter LED will turn off momentarily, and then start flashing much faster (it’s initializing the gyros).

    3. Once the fast flashing stops, the red LED on the copter will go to a solid “on”. Now place it in the flat LZ area. BE CAREFUL NOT TO MOVE THE THROTTLE (LEFT) STICK WHILE YOU’RE MOVING IT TO THE LZ OR ELSE IT WILL COME TO LIFE ON YOU!

    It’s now ready to fly.

    Flying the quadcopter:

    A couple of things to know: The left stick is throttle (up and down), and rudder, or rotate left or right. The right stick is forward and backward, or tilt left and right. The white propellers are the front of the copter – you’ll be able to see them as they spin – and the black props are the rear. They will mostly disappear visually as they spin.

    You have to “fly the tail” on this because it will keep pointing in the same direction no matter which direction it is moving. It has no real rudder to keep it pointing forward as you fly it forward, which is a little strange if you’re used to flying planes or helicopters (without heading-hold)…

    Critical Piece of Instruction…., December 26, 2012

    We were disapointed in this toy on Christmas morning. It was impossible to fly – it just went sideways as soon as it took off and nothing we did seemed to calibrate it sufficiently to hover. The instruction manual says “After charging the aircraft the light will flash for ten seconds. Turn on the aircraft and controller and wait for flashing lights to indicate the aircraft is ready for flight.” What it fails to mention is that it is critical to place the “aircraft” on a flat surface at his time IMMEDIATELY after inserting the battery. The model then apparently is able to calibrate itself and will hover reasonably stablely. The online manual clued me in to our mistake (we were probably holding the model in our hands in an un-level position for the first dozen seconds after plugging in the battery)

    “When insert the charged battery, quad copter will into automatic detection state (the indicator light flashing swift in the first ten seconds when power on) at that time, please place it at a level position, if not copter will fly inclined”

    Plug in the battery, put it down right away on the floor or table top. This should be included in the printed instruction manual, the toy is worthless without this knowledge. But once you know the secret, it works quite well and I can recommend it.
