Fab fücking BA. 11/10. Only flown in the garden as yet but for this price I'm very happy. Don't land it on soft grass

Will test battery capacity tonight. Might be room for an upgrade there later.

Mine is an Xmas present from the wife so I'm flying some of my other drones in anticipation and also watching YouTube videos about the bugs 3.
Looks like standard battery connections so easy upgrade there and also spare plug for an inbuilt camera if you don't want to hang a go pro off it.

I've seen a few batteries around with 3000mah, anyone have an opinion on them?

I had some problems getting the drone blades to spin. I followed the instructions but didn't realise the throttle had to be in the fully down position for the blades to begin spinning. Looking forward to getting it out in the park tomorrow.

Ordered one too, it arrived today, charging now.

Anyone know how to open the camera mount? Mine seems to be jammed, neither end of the clamp wants to open.

Thats not the calibration...... Both levers bottom right is calibration. There is one unused button.



I jumped on this BA too quickly and assumed it was GoPro mount system. Its not. The latch on my camera mount snapped the first time I opened it (carefully) as it was bound way too tight - plastic probably cooled. Managed to strap a Session 4 in but its far from ideal.

Somebody want to make these and sell them to boardsies for a fiver?

Thank you very much, worked out at about 36 euro, not too bad at all.

Ah ok. The video said I need to hold that button for 3 seconds to calibrate!

Quick Q - anybody else’s left controller stick really loose. The right controller stick is springy. I don’t want to put it all together and then return it - I’d rather return it as is if it’s broken. Sorry if it’s a silly Q.

The left stick should only be springy left to centre and right to centre, not up or down.
I'm sure there's a better way to word it.
