BATTERY AND BATTERY CHARGER

BATTERY & BATTERY CHARGER

BUILD HOPPER
Battery Installation

  • Place Hopper on a flat surface and locate the battery port at the rear of the drone

  • Insert the battery in the port as shown

  • Ensure the arrow on the battery is facing up and is pointing towards the drone

  • When the battery is inserted, the drone will perform a systems check that will spin each motor/propeller

  • If you notice any propellers that do not spin, make sure the propellers are installed correctly, and the motors are connected properly to the PCB





Battery Charging

  • Connect the USB end to a wall charger or computer and charge the battery until the front lights turn green

  • Batteries can also be charged using the included FTW Battery Pack

  • This multi-charger supports charging of [3] batteries at the same time and can be connected through a USB port 



Note: Battery is charging when the red light is illuminated





Airfoil

A body (such as an airplane wing or propeller blade) designed to provide a desired reaction force when in motion relative to the surrounding air

Airframe

The Airframe is the main body of the drone that every other component attaches to

Anti-Clockwise [A]

Anti-Clockwise (or Counter Clockwise) [A] motion is one that proceeds in the opposite direction as a clock's hands

Battery

Energy source used to supply power to the drone

Clockwise [C]

Clockwise [C] motion is one that proceeds in the same direction as a clock's hands

Firmware

Firmware is permanent software programmed into a read-only memory

Gimbal

The mechanism that allows for different position of the camera on the drone

Micro-USB

a miniaturized version of the Universal Serial Bus interface which enables the direct charging of the drone's battery

Motor

A motor is powered by electricity that supplies motive power for moving parts

PCB

A Printed Circuit Board is a board design with a base board and copper traces to maintain connectivity between electronic components such as LED's, integrated circuits, and resistors for your devices

Propeller Twist

A differece in angle between the blade at its tip, and at the point where it meets the propller hub

Propellers

Mechanical device for propelling an aircraft or boat, consisting of a revolving shaft with two or more broad, angled blades attached to it
