    Hello everyone! My Syma X8C Venture seems to be acting strange. The flashing lights when on headless mode flash fast after a few mins of flight. Is this an indication of a depleted battery? I tested the lipos, they were at about 65%. It was cold outside, about 35 deg. My preparatory procedure is as follows:
    Turn on transmitter
    Plug in battery turn quad ON
    Advance throttle stick to full then back binding occurs
    Set to headless top left button push for 3 seconds
    Put on High Rate
    Both sticks push to low left corner for a few seconds (sets gyro)

    Is this the correct sequence?
    Thanks for any suggestions! Bill (in Pennsylvania)

    Don't know what that means, but 4.2 x 65%=2.73V. Most toys will give up the ghost @~3.8V.

    Jackson said: "Most toys will give up ..." is this some kind of passive aggressive way of "hobby shaming" someone's choice of drones? ... Asking for a friend! LOL!

    No. He's referring to toy grade products which aren't programmable and will just quit at a certain voltage. Whereas "hobby grade" products are programmable to give you the ability to set minimum voltage, give different types of warnings, etc. No shaming here, we all started by flying toys, some of us still do!
