We have a few of these "Shop Returned" quads. These have NOT been tested and may be fully working or have one minor issue (most of the time these are returned because either programing is too hard or the wrong TX was chosen).
They are open and complete. This is a great chance to get a second whoop.
When they are gone they are gone.

Binding & Betaflight Setup Procedure with External FrSky RX
A) Turn on transmitter, create new mode and enter setup, the Mode must be D8.
B) Power on the quadcopter by connecting the battery,red LED at the tail of the drone will flash rapidly on receiver after 6 seconds, the receiver is in ready for binding mode.Then turn on the transmitter, enter the binding mode, the red LED will turn solid, this means it has bound successfully with the default mode in SBUS.
Connecting the USB cable will not power on the FrSky RX,so you MUST connect the battery when binding.
Turn on the transmitter for 6 to 30 second to be bound in SBUS mode; Turn on the transmitter after 30 seconds to be
in PPM mode. The flight controller will default SBUS mode.
C) For each flight, turn on the transmitter firstly, then power on the quadcopter, if the receiver has a solid red LED,this means it is bound correctly,with RSSI and voltage telemetry.
With FrSky RX,there are several different configurations to DSMX RX with Betaflight GUI .

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
