MY SKY VIPER DRIFTS IN ANY DIRECTION WHILE HOVERING WITHOUT ME PRESSING THE DIRECTION STICK.
You may need to make trim adjustments. To do so, safely land the drone on a level surface. Press the trim button in the opposite direction of the drift (i.e. drone drifts forward, press B). If the drone continues to drift, repeat the process and be sure to watch the VIDEO for how to adjust the trim controls on the remote until drifting ceases.
MY PROPS AREN’T SPINNING.
We first recommend removing the propellers very carefully. When you do, make sure to note the location and position of each propeller – if they are not put back exactly that same way, the drone will not fly. Once the propeller is off (best to do this one at a time) look down into the shaft to see if any carpet fibers, pet hair or lint have gotten into the shaft. It’s very common for fibers to get caught and stop the propellers from spinning. Clean it with a toothpick or similar object. Repeat for each propeller.
WHEN SHOULD I ADJUST THE SENSITIVITY LEVEL ON MY DRONE?
The sensitivity level should be increased as your flying skills develop. We recommend that you start in the LOW position (1) until you have mastered flying. Increasing the sensitivity level increases the speed of the drone as well as its ability to turn quickly.
HOW DO I REPLACE THE BLADES ON MY SKY VIPER?
Use the small red screwdriver (included with your Sky Viper) to remove the old blade. Place the new blade back onto the peg. Line up the screw with the hole on the peg and tighten with the screwdriver.
DO I NEED TO REGISTER MY SKY VIPER DRONE WITH THE FAA?
