1. Turn on the quadcopter first by connecting the battery. The lights on the quadcopter will start to blink in a pattern. First all four lights blink on and off together. Then the front blue lights blink on their own. Then the lights blink in a clock wise pattern. Blue, blue, red, red. Blue, blue, red, red.
2. Turn on the transmitter (remote control) and you will see SET COMPASS 1. At this point, you will know that the transmitter did bind to the quadcopter.
Quadcopter 101 youtube dude says you can bind it by pressing the camera button down and then power on the transmitter while continuing to press the camera button. This is the way I used to do it until I realized the quadcopter lights was blinking in a certain pattern. Once the pattern was blue, blue, red, red, in a clockwise pattern, I simply turned on the transmitter and it did the bind instantly.
1.They run into stuff. Always fly higher than everything else should be the plan.
2. They run out of battery. Always return with plenty of battery should be the plan.
3. They fly the full sized drones inside when only toys should be flown indoors .
4. They lose control because they choose to disregard and over ride all the built in fail safes. Keep gps on and stay in line of sight if drone.
5. They don't use a pre flight checklist and stick to it. Don't make exceptions and stick to the checklist. Like if seeing if the solar activity monitor shows all is clear or not. If all is quiet with the geomagnetic field, then okay to fly. Yet if beautiful day and there is a geomagnetic storm, should choose to stay grounded.
