    ZipZap Drone won't start

    I just got a Zip & Zap drone, and the Zap (the red one) works fine, but the blue one refuses to connect to the controller. I turn both of them on, and then move the throttle up and down like it says, and the controller beeps, but the lights on the drone keep flashing. How can I fix this?

    UPair One wiring issue

    I recently came into possession of a UPair One drone. Whilst it’s a pretty good clone of some big brand one (so I’ve been told, I’m a newbie), I’m really struggling with an issue it has.

    1st quadcopter build causing a variety of issues.

    My roommate and I decided 2 years ago that it would be a fun challenge to learn about and build a quadcopter from scratch. We even planned on making our frame from scratch with 3D printed parts, but eventually settled on a premade one. This is the parts list we drew up Turnigy 850kv brushless...
