Installation

I can’t connect to the CoDrone 

Make sure you properly installed the driver.  https://www.robolink.com/how-to-install-rokitbrick-codrone/.  Check to see if all of your cables are firmly connected.  Try using another USB port.

I am using a Mac and I can’t update the bluetooth board 

There is currently no mac support for updating your Bluetooth Board.  Coming soon! 


Using the CoDrone

Setting Trim 

To review how to trim your CoDrone, go here

My CoDrone is always leaning towards one direction 

This could mean that your CoDrone needs to be trimmed.  To review how to trim your CoDrone, go here

You should also check your motors to see if there is any hair or debris slowing down the propellers.  Take off the propeller and inspect the shaft.

Make sure the propellers don’t have any chips or bends in them.

I replaced my propeller/propellers and now my CoDrone won’t fly

You may have installed the wrong propellers in the wrong direction.  Review how to replace your propellers here

My CoDrone won’t fly upwards and keeps bouncing along the ground

This could mean that your CoDrone needs to be trimmed.  You should add THROTTLE trim.  To review how to trim your CoDrone, go here

This could also be a result of a low battery.  Replace the battery with a fresh one and try again.

My CoDrone flies upward too quickly and gets stuck on the ceiling

This could mean that your CoDrone needs to be trimmed.  You should add negative THROTTLE trim.  Drones will always suction to the ceiling if they get too close.  To review how to trim your CoDrone, go here

One of my propellers seems to be spinning much slower than my other ones

This could be a trim problem or a motor issue.  You can test this by removing the motor and switching it with the motor diagonally opposite it (diagonally because adjacent motor’s propellers are oriented in different directions).  If the specified motor is still spinning slower, then it is a hardware issue and the motor should be cleaned or replaced.  To clean the motor, pull off the propeller and remove and hair or debris from around the shaft.

If the problem does not follow the motor but instead persists with the specific location of the CoDrone, the CoDrone should be trimmed. To review how to trim your CoDrone, go here

My CoDrone is using only the two front motors.  

The CoDrone is probably in Drive mode.  Include:

 CoDrone.DroneModeChange(Flight);

at the end of your setup code to revert the CoDrone to Flight mode.  You should only have to do this once

My CoDrone won’t pair.   

Remove and replace the battery and try again.  If the green light continues blinking and the CoDrone still cannot pair, check your controller code to ensure the AutoConnect command is being used properly.

One of my motors is weaker/won’t spin.

Remove the propeller and make sure there are no hairs or fibers obstructing the shaft.

If your motor is spinning sporadically or not spinning at all, try improving the connecting between the lead wires and the conducting surface on the CoDrone’s arms.  Take small pliers or tweezers and pull the lead wires upwards:

Before (Lead wires are laying flat)

zoom wires 2

 After (Lead wires are lifted)

zoom wires 1
