Bought one each of the tie fighter and x-wing, so my son and I could have dogfights. Charged up the batteries and followed all of the instructions in the manuals. Neither drone would fly. The rotors spin and whine, but they will not lift the vehicle off the ground. All of the controls seem to be working properly. If the barrel roll button is pressed, they will flip onto theirs backs, but nothing can get them to actually lift and hover. Did I get two defective units, or am I doing something wrong?
They came in a timely fashion, but we did not open them until Christmas, only to discover they would not fly.
edit: looking at reviews for these on amazon, I see that many people had the same experience! Lots of noise and lights, but they do not actually fly. Will be looking for a refund/return. Should have read the reviews on amazon first.
The diagram to attach the propellers is shown from the top down. So if you have the drone upside down to install them you may have reversed the propellers.
Make sure you are aligning the A and B propellers onto the proper motors. Looking down on the drone the propellers should be; A B
Hope that helps!
They fly fine , try reading the directions it very clearly tells you how to make these fly! These are not your kids toys so it does require some skill to make these fly!
The blades sound like they were not put on following the orientation in the manual. Been flying drones for a very long time and this is a common symptom of that problem. The props have an a and a b. Looking down at the top of the model with the front facing away from you, the front left is an A the right front is a B. The rear left is a B and the rear right is an A. Hopefully this helps.
I learned how to read instructions 56 years ago. The drones failed to fly, no matter how many times I read the manual.
No need for a sarcastic reply. Bummer your drones didn’t work. Just trying to help a fellow enthusiast enjoy their drones.
You probably have the A and B blades reversed. I originally did the same thing on mine. After I switched the blades to the correct position everything worked perfectly.
Check to make sure you put the props on the right motors
Bet you have propellers on wrong postd
