I tried it but it made no difference unfortunately.
I also tried to reset the quad and transmitter following the instructions in the manual. If anything, that seemed to make things worse.
What I found was happening before I tried resetting was that, the 4 motors would come on and accelerate if I pushed the throttle stick upwards at an angle of 13.05 (5 past one) but even then and at full throttle, the quad would not ascend even an inch. If I pushed the stick directly upwards, only 3 motors would come on. Since I tried resetting (which is merely moving both sticks to the SSE position), the situation is even worse, the motors stop and wont come on again, unless I turn quad and tx off and then on again.
Another problem is the camera. I scanned and installed the app for the camera from the Syma site, on to my phone. Basically you then turn the camera on and then open Wi Fi connections on the phone, and wait to see if FPV appears. It did but kept disconnecting and reconnecting. When it show a steady connection it also said “no internet”. Anyway once the FPV says connected, you are supposed to then open the Syma app, click on camera and then see footage on your phone screen. This isn’t happening. The Syma app just keeps saying “Camera not connected”.
You can buy a new TX and camera for this quad dirt cheap on Bangood. But I am wondering if that will solve the problems?
