This might sound stupid but how do you get the video/pics off the quad? The instructions suck please help.

+Darrin Isenberg No worries. The camera has a micro-SD card slot in the back. Everything is stored on that card (think of it like a thumb drive). You need to just take the card out and put it into a card reader. I think it comes with one. For instance, you can use an adapter like this: http://www.walmart.com/ip/41084980?wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=22222222227028675540&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=56962243991&wl4=&wl5=pla&wl6=94290009191&veh=sem

+robert suter I had over 40 flights into mine before I crashed and damaged it. The motors are easy to replace. :)

because of your video I bought the drone for my dad for Christmas...looks good... when you take off do you use full throttle...or what are the techniques
RavingMadProductions
RavingMadProductions
+Su Sang No, I use 1/2 throttle or less, usually.

Can fatshark goggles be used with this?
RavingMadProductions
RavingMadProductions
+Diragonoman Good question, I am sure they could with the right wireless output from the camera, but as it sits, I do not know.

Still using this one bro? Just brought one and waiting for it to rock up.

+Stu Bags Unfortunately, it wrecked and needs the frame and control board replaced. Busy with post grad work until May, so job hunting is taking a toll on my free time to fix the quad. :( If I don't fix it I'll be back in the air in the next few months regardless with a new one.

I have the same one pretty hard to fly for beginners but really easy for experienced flyers and you should get the hang of it within the first flight

Hi there I've been looking for an answer with the batteries. I bought this aircraft but when charging the battery it flashes red, what does it mean? I used it to 0 percent every time. It charges but really slow, takes up to 24 hours to charge now. Any Idea what this could be?
RavingMadProductions
RavingMadProductions
+Lars Carré It's a cheap quad, so the battery may be a bad battery from the factory. I would avoid fully discharging it. Once it has a hard time hovering, charge it then.

Your FPV looks like crap because it's operating over analogue, which is a good thing. Go out of range with digital and it'll black out completely, start going out of range with analogue and you'll begin to get noise before it blacks out then you can bring it back in. The recorded footage is apparently quite good for this, which is what photographers/videographers want, the fpv is just a guide to know what you're looking at.

Where can I buy replacement motors online?
RavingMadProductions
RavingMadProductions
+Rayaan Anjarwalla Banggood.com has replacement motors and they are fairly cheap at less than $4/motor.

You can se The mod camara in your controler ??

+jediangel123 Included with the V666 is a screen that attaches to the controller. So yes, you can. :)

if you burn out a motor do you have to replace it or just let it cool down?
Rayaan Anjarwalla
Rayaan Anjarwalla
thanks so much
RavingMadProductions
RavingMadProductions
+Rayaan Anjarwalla A burned out motor is permanently damaged, and thus, must be replaced. :( Make sure to break in brushed motors by running them at idle for 10 minutes, then clear any dust by using canned air or an air compressor.

In cold weather the foam got brittle, the flip should be called crash mode
RavingMadProductions
RavingMadProductions
+Crozbyguy That was probably a big part of it, too. :( Still, I flew it for another 30 - 40 flights before it had a bad crash. :)

were do you get the mod camera ?? whats it called ?
RavingMadProductions
RavingMadProductions
+Darren Swann It already comes with a 720P camera to fly with the quad, but it's not that great. You can optionally purchase a 1080P camera from most of the placed that sell the WLToys quadcopters called a Mobius Camera. The entire video was shot with it.

i have the same drone...on used it 3 times...not working ...i just noticed a small blue light on under it...anybody know why? thank you
David Wood
David Wood
Oh no....how can I get that fixed..only had it in the air two times...and thank you for replying
RavingMadProductions
RavingMadProductions
+David Wood Sounds like the control board. Could also possibly be the antenna receiver on the board, too. :(
David Wood
David Wood
No the motors not turning at all now
RavingMadProductions
RavingMadProductions
+David Wood Is the small blue light on the FPV camera, or near the quadcopter motors. There is no blue light on the underside than in these two locations, if I recall correctly. Do the motors turn? Does the quad turn on?

These things have such crappy motors however you being in the cold they probably don't burn out as much but here in Florida I was burning out a motor almost once a week .  But I will say this was the quadcopter that got me hooked, flew great but sadly crappy motors which you have to disassemble the whole thing to replace a motor , got old after the 3rd motor, tossed it and I have finally settled on my trusty ultra fun ZMR250
RavingMadProductions
RavingMadProductions
+ZipSnipe I hear you there for sure! I am lucky and must have gotten some bomber motors. Still going after 35 flights, most in SoCal, not Montana. Wow! Planning a custom build soon. :)

Steven Means
yes please tell me how many feet can it go stright up before you cant control it
RavingMadProductions
RavingMadProductions
+Steven Means Hi Steve, you can get a solid 250ft straight up no problem. The problem is horizontal range, because of the receiver location on the quad arm and the fact that the external antenna on the transmitter is actually fake, horizontal flight is at most 200ft. I'd say most of the time I was getting 175 feet. I will be posting a video with a transmitter modification soon.  :)

I got a V333 with a HD Cam for Christmas and I love it.  I also flew it in the cold, but the cold will kill your lipo battery!!!  I only got about 20 flights in before the lipo went.  But on the other hand, the motors won't burn out at 20 degrees. Its a good idea to spray the motors with an electric motor solvent every 5 flights or so.
RavingMadProductions
RavingMadProductions
+ScottyG117 Great tip on the solvent, I had no idea you could do that! These motors do very well in cold where you aren't getting that excess heat.  :DIn terms of the LiPo, that is weird that it went so soon. Cold does kill batteries, but only if you are running them really low. Heavy current on a battery actually heats it up, which in cold temperatures will preserve the life of a battery (so long as it's not too hot!). If you storing the battery in the cold, or running it empty in the cold, that could be a big problem for life span. In the cold I tend to limit my flights to the point I can see decreased quad performance, then recharge to hopefully avoid deep cycle discharges.

You are absolutely right, please see my video below showing the mods for speed and fly time without the canopy/foam. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIr3YPFONYI

it fly better without canopy (for experienced player only)

even though I don't like this quad I always liked the look of it with the canopy and I thought it flew great, easier to see orientation too

I'd love to see those mods.  It would be fantastic to fly as long as a Phantom can.
