Frequently Asked Questions
Due to the overwhelming response from the customers, we have put together this FAQ to answer the most commonly asked questions.This section will grow as more and more customers give us valuable feeedback and suggestions on how to improve the tuning.
Q: Can I enjoy it if i am a drone hobby beginner?
This is not a beginners quad.You will need a decent transmitter.
You will need to know how to use the program cleanflight/betaflight.
Most importantly,you should have 5.8G goggles to enjoy the FPV experience.
Q: Is this a complete RTF quad?
This is not complete RTF drone. You will need a transmitter to bind to it. Spektrum DX8 is recommended.
Q: I want more information about the brush flight controller.
F3 brushed flight controller with Native DSM receiver, support DSM2 protocol with 6 channel or above for this current version, compatible with Spektrum DX6, DX8, DX9, DX10, DX18, DX20 transmitter. NOTE: NOT G2 type
Q: What Flight Modes does it have?
The board runs the popular Cleanflight/Betaflight firmware that is fully customizable and includes several different modes: Auto-Level, Horizon (auto-leveling mode with ability to flip), and full manual (rate). You can also enable AirMode and be able to control the quad at any speed and attitude!
BetaFlight 3.0.1 rocks with the "MR. Steele" PIDs.
Binding & Flying Procedure DSM version
Supports all the Spectrum radio transmitter,like DX6/DX6i.
This is a high-quality Spektrum DSMX/DSM2 compatible receiver. It is not an official Spektrum receiver.
The Spektrum, DSMX and DSM2 brand is a trademark of Horizon Hobbies, USA.

And click the Save button in the lower right corner.
(There is a push-button under the battery compartment. Press this button whilst connecting the battery or USB cable; both work. A blue LED will flash very rapidly when the receiver is in bind mode. This is the 3rd most inner LED on the underside of the PCB. The other two are for the flight controller.
If you have problems binding change the TX to DSM2 / 22ms mode. Normally what you set on the TX is the desired mode and the TX+RX negotiate their capabilities and select a mutually compatible mode.
If you still have problems binding take the TX and walk to the other side of the room. This is a solution that Spektrum themselves recommend for some TX+RX firmware combinations. This seems to be the case between most DX8 and this quad.
The receiver outputs PPM signal.)
Why wont my quad arm?
It has been the case on a few transmitters that the quad does not seem to arm. This could be due to the throttle not being quite at zero, and so the quad will not arm.
Please check your RX Range if you can not arm your quad. Here is a great video explaing how to check and set your RX range.
An excellent info page here. (Look right down the bottom of the page)
The F3 flight control board has a native Spektrum DSM2 receiver which works with any DSM2 compatible transmitters,
It also has support for external receivers like Makerfires ISky AC800 which will allow you to connect your Taranis transmitter
Note : the included USB charger is NOT to be used as a long term soloution for charging your lipos.
Never leave the lipo plugged in for longer than it takes to charge it.
We recomend you buy a proper lipo charger as soon as possible.
