Kudrone's calibration is very delicate and important. If did not calibrate correctly, it will drift forward or back, right or left immediate after take off. In such a case, change the angle you have, please calibrate again.
Deter the screen rotation and notification of the iPhone before flight. When screen rotate during flight, flew away in unlikely direction. OR lose control when phone call comes in.
How to charge Kudrone batteryPlace the battery in Kudrone or charger and connect it to the USB AC adapter. The red lamp flashes on the charger during charging. And turns green when completed.
If the lamp does not illuminate, check the connection with USB AC adapter. Re-insert the connector firmly or change cable to another one you have.
In addition, if you try to charge a fully charged battery, the lamp will remain red and charging will not be done. Battery is almost fully charged at the factory shipment. If you can not charge it, first set it to Kudrone and try using it first.
When using a new battery for the first time, the remaining capacity may not be read correctly. Initially, we recommend that you let the vehicle fly until the battery runs out indoors, then fully charge it before using it.
