    Question Drones?

    Hello everyone. Is there anyone in the group that knows about drones?

    I bought a drone last Saturday at a Garage Sale and now that I have a day off, I wanted to try it but I can't get it to fly.

    I think I probably got it for a fair price, just a bit under $200.00 Canadian.

    Can anyone help?
    PS. Since I have no user manual of the drone, here is a picture of it.

    My goal in life is to have a psychiatric disorder named after me.

    yes Nomad, a box with two joysticks and some switches. No wonder your drone won't fly.

    But don't worry , you can make it fly. Start the engines ( you have 5 i see ) and toss it around on a 30 feet rope.

    PS normaly there's also a seat with it to enjoy playing . It has a stick to put in the field ... Was it not included ?

    I have never seen a jet powered drone before Nomad. You really got a deal.

    Is the hole in the middle to mount your camera?

    I guess so.

    But like I say, I'm new to them.

    Surprised you were able to buy that - it's a military stealth drone. Notice the curved surfaces. Impressive.
