    Hi all,

    As soon as I press the fly up button, the quadcopter drone starts going up and won't come back down! The controller buttons don't seem to work anymore :(

    Every time, it begins to fly up, hits my room's ceiling and comes down crashing.

    This was fine for the past 2 months, but is acting up this past week or so.

    What height is the take off/landing set at?

    You say your ceiling, well it is possible that the return home height is set to a height higher then your ceiling, try and turn it on and fly it outside.

    I am pretty sure that would be the issue, you can change the setting by connecting your smartphone/I-Phone to the drones wifi, there should be an app to download also.

    Hi Stu, thanks for your feedback. But, are you talking about the Holy Stone HS190 the $30 one in Target, etc?

    I don't see an option to set the "return home height" and I don't see a phone app either in the AppStore?!

    Jackson, yes, I have tried that already, doesn't seem to help :(
    And I couldn't post a link because I am fairly new.

    Stu, Jackson, any other ideas?

    Probably bust from hitting the ceiling so many times.
    You should be able to post pics & links after 3 posts.

    A speculation from a newbie...…
    Any chance this problem started after you changed/replaced a set of propellers ?
    There is specific way to install/replace propellers.
