- Clam Shell Design protects electronic and mechanical assemblies
- LED lights are white in the front and red at the rear, so it's easy to tell direction when you are flying!
- Advanced "Low Battery" warning system protects your on-board battery!
- Adjustable flight modes with Auto Flip feature
- Factory Assembled & Ready to Fly
- Includes rechargeable lithium battery and USB charger.
- Reusable packaging so you can easily store your toy and keep all the accessories together!
Accessing the Battery
- Slide open the battery access door (underside of drone) and carefully remove the battery.
- Usually just a little shake will dislodge it from its place.
- Do not use sharp objects to pry it out as you may damage the battery. Wiggle the cables free until the connectors are accessible. Take special note as it comes out how it is neatly folded into place, so that there is room to close the door when reinstalling the battery.
- Separate the connectors to free the battery. Pull on the connectors and not the wires to separate, or you may break one!
CHARGING YOUR NEON
- You can use your computer, TV, or USB charger (shown below, not included) to charge NEON. Don't use a USB power source with a higher output than 5V 1A (1000mA).
- Just insert the included USB charging plug into the USB port. The USB plug will light up red, which indicates power to the charger.
- Plug the battery into the other end of the cable.. it only fits one way.. and the red light on the charger will go out.. which indicates that the charger has started to charge the battery.
- Charging times vary but can be as high as 60 minutes depending on the state of the battery's charge and output of the charging power source.
- When it's done charging, the light will come back on. It's that easy!
- When storing NEON for more than a day, fully charge the battery to preserve its condition and fitness.
- Replace your battery into the drone, but don't reconnect it until you are ready to fly!
- Always let your battery cool down after a flight before charging it. Charging a hot Li-po battery will damage it.
- Fully charged, your battery should read 4.2 volts.
- When your drone begins to slow down.. stop.. let things cool off, and recharge the battery. It should not read below 3.7 volts.. never fully deplete a li-po battery of its charge.
How To Sync
1/ Make sure the model is turned Off and locate a flat level surface.
2/ Plug the battery into the NEON and turn it on. Place the NEON on the flat surface, you must do this within 5 seconds of turning the power switch ON. You will see flashing lights on the NEON start to blink.
3/ Turn on the power for the controller. You will see a flashing red LED light and audible beep indicating the power is on. Both the Controllers light and the Drones blinking lights will now go solid.
4/ Move the left control stick (this is also the throttle stick) all the way up, then all the way down. You will hear an audible beep at the top and again at the bottom. The model is now bound.
The NEON MUST be on a flat surface in order to digitally self level itself, otherwise the model will not sync to the controller.
LiteHawk NEON - First Flight
When heading out to fly your model, it’s important to always use common sense.
Do not fly in the following places: Near crowds or high voltage, near any obstacles, wind speeds over C (3mph), thunder, rain or snow or between high buildings.
- Ensure nothing prevents the smooth running of the moving parts.
- Do not dismantle or tamper with this R/C product or its transmitter. The manufacturer and distributor will accept no responsibility, expressed or implied, for accidents or injuries caused as a result of dis-assembly, modification and/or usage against the instructions for this product.
- Ensure that all batteries are correctly installed and that the Li-Po battery is fully charged and in good condition.
- Do not touch ANY moving parts during operation.
Auto Take Off- Press the Auto Take Off/Land Button to start the motors on your Drone, after the binding process. Now push up gently on the Throttle stick, release the throttle stick at your desired altitude.
Auto Land- Press the Auto Take Off/Land Button to slow the motors on your Drone, the drone will land itself.
Altitude Hold-Your LiteHawk Drone is equipped with a barometric sensor which allows for Altitude hold capability. The Drone will maintain your desired height while flying. The Left Stick (Throttle) is now spring loaded and rests in the center position. If you want to climb, just push up on the throttle stick and release when you have achieved your desired height. To Lower the Drones height, just push the throttle stick down, until the desired height is achieved, then release the stick.
LiteHawk NEON - Post Flight
- When you have finished using your LiteHawk NEON you should first disconnect the Li-Po battery, then switch OFF the transmitter (press and hold power button for up to 3 seconds).
- If you do not plan on using the quadrocopter for more than 24 hours, it is recommended that you recharge the battery fully before putting it away.
- Remember to allow the battery to cool 10-15 minutes before recharging.
| Standard/Sport Modes:
Press once and you will hear one beep - you are in Standard Mode (response rates are at 50%). Press again and you will hear two beeps - you are now in Sport Mode 2 (response rates are at 75%). In Sport Mode 2, controls are much more responsive. Press again and you will hear three beeps - you are now in Sport Mode 3 (response rates are at 100%). This is an advanced setting and should only be used when you are comfortable flying your NEON. Sport Mode 3 is for outdoor use. Factory setting is Standard Mode.
NEON ROTOR BLADE CARE
- The physical design of NEON provides some impact protection to the rotor blades by surrounding each blade with a ring. While this can save a blade in most collision situations, blade damage can still occur by contact with the tip of a tree limb, or some other small body that can't be excluded by the rings. Should you break a rotor blade, it's extremely easy to replace it!
- To remove a rotor blade, simply grasp the rotor blade with one hand (topside) and the motor pod with the other (underside) and pull the rotor blade off the motor shaft. Gentle but firm effort is all that's required.
- Each rotor blade has a unique colour and blade pitch. Rotor blades are stamped with an A or B designator that indicates its position. Be sure to select and install the correct rotor blade.
- To install a rotor blade, slide it onto the motor shaft until it is fully seated. Again, gentle but firm effort is all that's required. Check the freedom of the blade by giving it a flick with your finger, if it feels too tight in comparison with the others, just pinch it back a very tiny bit and flick it again.
- Hair and other fibre can wind itself around the motor shafts, possibly causing drag and reducing performance. To remove the wound hair or fibre, remove each rotor blade, pull off the accumulation, and replace the blade as outlined above.
Separating the Body Halves
- Start by removing all of the Rotor Blades. Take note of which blade comes off of which motor for reassembly. It is pictured above.
- Now you can remove all 18 screws from the Lower Body Shell.
- Unclip the 3 clips at the top of each motor pod that holds each motor in place. You can use a very small flat screw driver, or if using your finger nail won't bother you, it is much easier.
- With all of the motor pods unclipped, carefully lift off the Top Body Half, and set aside.
- Take special note of how the wiring for the motors and the light strips are laid out before removing or replacing.
- Take note on how the Neon LED light strips are arranged and laid out.
- To remove the ESC take out these 2 screws, The ESC locates on these 2 posts. Make sure that you orient the ESC with the On/Off switch at the rear and the Antenna at the front.
