Just received my e010 .it was flying great . I shut off the controler and changed the battery in the drone. No light when I turn on the controler just a tone. Never dropped. Just doesn’t work.

Hi schalk,

If both drone and remote controller are fully charged , I believe u have gotten the wrong remote controller for the E010. It happens sometimes, some e010 remote controllers are not able to work for the same e010 drone, as the items are manufactured by batches.

You can try purchasing another e010 remote controller , to see whether it pair with the e010. best if you can test at the shop . Online purchase is not recommended as if it is really a test of luck.

Please help. The drone (E010) keeps on flashing the front and back lights with strong fresh battery…? Turning on – left stick up and down, followed by constant red light on remote. The drone – no change with flashing lights. Please help with possible solution.

Hi steven,

probably nid to replace the motor if the shaft is bent.

It is crucial to calibrate everytime before flight so as to minimize the possibility of crash.
