The standard flight time is up to eight minutes on a single one hour charge of the on-board battery. Still pictures are taken at 1280 x 960, whereas videos are recorded at 640 x 480.
Inside the drone itself is a 3.7V 650mAh lithium-polymer rechargeable battery. It has a one hour charge time that provides up to eight minutes of flight.
At this time we do not have additional batteries available for this drone. Sorry!
The buttons that control the trim are the sliding switches underneath and to the sides of each control stick. If the drone is turning without input, slide the switch beneath the left stick in the opposite direction to the drone's spin to correct it. Likewise, if the drone leans to the left or right without input, you can correct this motion using the sliding switch underneath the right stick. Finally, if the drone is pulling forward or back without input, correct the motion using the sliding switch to the side of the right stick. Hope that helps!
Unfortunately the instructions are not available online, but please email [email protected] and our team should be able to send you a set.
Unfortunately we do not have a supply of spare parts for the Recon Drone at this time. Sorry about that!
No. The videos and photos are recorded and stored to an onboard SD card that must be removed from the Recon Observation Drone's camera before they can be viewed.
It shouldn't be an issue as 2.4G is nothing to do with the mobile networks. 2.4G is a frequency that this RC drone and certain other RC vehicles are controlled with. There are many benefits to 2.4G, chief of which is its resilliance to signal interference, meaning other RC toys and gadgets can be operated around it without any kind of disruption to the controls.
If you would like to know more, we have a blog post that details the benefits of 2.4G here: http://www.hawkin.com/blog/rc-cars-and-drones-what-is-2-4g/
Yes, the lithium battery inside can be removed to charge. The USB charging cable connects directly to the battery rather than the drone. Hope that helps!
The drone has green and red lights on its underside which are largely used to help determine the orientation of your drone. We do not reccommend extended night flights as these lights do not illuminate the way or reveal potential hazards hidden in the dark. Hope that helps!
With both the controller and drone switched on, move the left lever up and then down to synchronise them. You should then be ready to fly. Hope that helps!
Thank you for your message. The drone needs to synch each time after a charge, but calibration should be minimal. If the problem persists, please email our team on [email protected] with the issues you are encountering. The flight time of 6 to 8 minutes is down to the battery size. You might be able to find new batteries online or at hobby shops. You'll need a 3.7V battery with a JST connector. Our Recon drones are supplied with a 650 mAh battery, but you should be able to find one with a larger capacity for a longer flight time. Hope that helps!
Thank you for your message. Please ensure that you have fitted the correct blades to each motor. There are two sets of A blades and two sets of B blades. Please install them as indicated in the instruction manual. If this does not resolve the issue or you require furhter assistance, please feel free to email the team on [email protected] Hope that helps!
