The first step is to charge the battery. For charging instructions, refer to the included instruction manual for B3 PRO Compact Charger
For further information, please download these two documents:
For charging and operating instructions, please refer to the Wireless Mini DVR User Manual included in the box.
The DVR is set to Channel 8 by default. This is the channel at which the video transmitter onboard the drone broadcasts live stream video captured by the onboard camera.
Turn the drone upside down and place the battery in between the strap, making sure that the battery label is facing up as shown in the image.
Ensure that the battery connector is facing towards the rear (tail) of the drone, and opposite to drone’s power connector (the thick red and black cables with yellow connector)
Slide battery to the centre and tighten the strap as shown in the image.
Before connecting, ensure transmitter and screen are ON.
Place the drone on a level surface with the front of the drone facing yourself, as shown in the image, and plug the yellow connectors together.
When drone is powered up a musical tone will be heard; an ascending tone followed by an elongated tone. If any other tone is heard, unplug and reconnect the battery, or please refer to Troubleshooting.
Ensure the battery is connected and the transmitter is turned ON. When first connecting the battery do not move the drone and wait for 10 seconds while sensors are being calibrated.
Put the throttle to zero by pushing the left stick down all the way.
Then push it to the right and hold it there for 5 seconds. The drone should now be ARMED.
For safety reasons, the drone will DISARM automatically after 15 seconds.
Prepare for testing.
Place the drone in a safe location, away from obstacles
Throttle up slightly by pushing the left stick forward and check to see if all motors spin at the same rate.
YES, motors spin – Proceed.
NO, motors do not spin – Repeat the ARMING procedure and try again. If they still do not spin, please refer to Troubleshooting.
The drone should now be DISARMED.
To DISARM, put the throttle to zero by pushing the left stick down all the way.
Then push it to the left, hold it there for 2 seconds and it should be DISARMED.
Throttle up slightly to check if it has been DISARMED. If the motors spin, repeat the DISARMING procedure and try again.
Take off the nut and washer from each motor.
Place the propellers onto the motors as shown in the images below. Red to red, blue to blue and ensure the “top” label is facing up.
Use a little force to push the propeller onto the motor.
Fix the washer and nut back on to the motor.
Tighten the nut with the included spanner.
The Final Assembly
For rules on the safe operation of drones, please refer to the CASA Important Safety Information pamphlet in the ‘Start Here’ Box. Alternatively, it can be downloaded here: CASA Important Safety Information.
The battery fail-safe will trigger in two instances:
In either case, with 20% power left, the drone will automatically initiate the LANDING mode and land on the spot. Therefore, it is important to be mindful of the battery capacity and keep the drone flying nearby so that it is easily recoverable.
If the connection is lost between the RC Controller and the drone, the fail-safe is triggered. In this instance, RTL is automatically initiated.
