Next step for QAV210


Hi all,

This is my first time posting and need advice with the QAV210. Purchased as a Christmas project for my Son (and me… mostly me!!) After a bit of soldering issues to begin with we have now built our first drone. Battery plugged in, lights and beeping so I’m guessing we are on to a winner. I’ve been looking at youtube vids along the way for more info.
What is the next stage to get flying? do i need to test motors with BLHeli (which I’m still reading about)
Do i need some USB linker to do this?
I did follow a youtube vid for the setting up of the FS-iA6 controls, but at the moment I am not getting any response from the drone.
Any help would be most grateful as I can see this becoming a full time hobby.

Regards Tony
