I have to take out and put back in my SD card several times for it to read it. Very annoying

This might be odd question, the Drone just arrived for my brother. He is dong a lot of checking into before he flies.

He mentioned a video and see a guy putting on "protectors" onto the wings of his Drone, similar model to the this one. He is wondering do they come with it? or is it extra
?

It's a strange one, Xiaomi ship the drone with either a WiFi dongle or blade protectors. You can buy both separately too.

Blade protectors do get in the way of shots though, so I really don't recommend them.

The thing to remember is, do not use where there's a chance of crashing. Take it to a field, beach or park where there's nobody around and you won't have a problem.

Definitely escalate with PayPal if you're not getting anywhere with gearbest.

Mine arrived today. I ordered it on 31st December. Did not show up at all on order tracking on gearbest site and only showed up yesterday on AnPost Tracker as in Porlaoise Mail Centre (I live in Dublin). No custom duty or VAT to pay. Happy days.

Yeah gearbest said the deadline is the 13 of Feb so if it hasn't arrived by then I'll have to.

You should be able to use the standard iPhone cable in the usb port on the controller, so need for adapters.

I have heard that the drone app works far better on android though.

It arrived this morning out of the blue! Just about to take it out for a test flight.
The tracking only updated on the an post website this morning as it was out for delivery.

Question:I'm having difficulty getting my phone to connect to the controller with the cable. It's a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. I can't select USB tethering when the app prompts me to. Anyone resolved this?

Going to use the wifi dongle for now but would rather get the USB cable working.

Yep, before opening the app. Go into settings when the phone and controller are connected and enable usb tethering. Then go into the app and ignore the next tethering message. That's what I have to do..
