One from the archives, still learning how to fly. Interesting how the drone handles on a windy day.

Thanks, not sure if I can stretch the budget at the moment

Here's another one from today. A bit cloudy, hopefully the weather's clearing up!

What sort of distance can or should you send this away from you? My other brother talking about getting one to check cattle to save driving around....going to check distance on maps and then see if it would work

I dont want to use bro 1 in case I lose it :-)

Xiaomi advertise 4km with clear line of site, although obstacles will reduce the range. You need to fly within line of site according to IAA rules and regs, so doubt flying it out of visibility is a good idea if you don't want to get in trouble..

Again line of sight is a must. I use it for rounding sheep as the dog is useless. I don't get anything over 2 KM's range. No harm in seeing how far it goes, it will always return to home anyway once it goes out of range...Has for me anyway!
On a separate note I have noticed recently after various updates that there are now serious lags on my phone. I tried the wife's phone which is newer to mine and works perfectly. Just disappointing as it used to work perfectly with no lags on mine. I must avoid updates in future!

Ok, I got it off my brother as he cannot get iPhone working....

So I have drone on. Remote on and app downloaded.

I connected the bluetooth dongle to the remote but it cant see anything in the bluetooth section in phone.

Try via Wifi....it says the password 123456789 is incorrect?

Try via cable and "Failed to connect phone and RC"

Any ideas?

Yep, you need to enable tethering. Cable is best, you need to select usb tethering. If using WiFi, you need to turn on WiFi Tethering.

I haven't used the app on the iPhone. But as far as I know the WiFi password is 123456789
