Pre-Flight Preparation

  • Battery preparation
    • Please prepare a sufficient number of batteries(more than the number of drones)
    • Please charge the battery fully(according to the flight time, the voltage is at less 8.2V)
  • Drone preparation
    • Please check the number the drones
    • Please check the airframe od the drones, especially for the propeller guard, propeller and the motor
  • Flight Path preparation
    • Use Vimdrones Designer to design the Flight path, save the .blend file and export the data

Pre-Flight Setup Procedure

  • Power the wifi router, connect the wifi router and PoE power supply with a network cable
  • Place the tripod,setup the RTK Base and the antenna, use the Feeder to connect the RTK Base and the antenna
  • Connect the RTK Base to PoE power supply with a network cable (so the wifi router can communicate with the RTK base)
  • Power the RTK Base through the PoE power supply
  • Power the radio transmitter
  • Place and locate drones, the distance between each drone no less than 2 m
  • Insert the batteries to the drones, but not power the drones

  • Its capacity is 3000 mAh and the rated voltage is 8.7V.
  • Charger light will turn red from green light, while the battery is fully charged.

Battery Charging and Discharging

  • At normal charging mode, in constant current stage, the battery is charged in 0.2C until voltage reaches 8.7V, when constant voltage stage starts. Whole charging ends after 3.5 hours or when charging current is less than 60mA(0.02C).
  • At fast charging mode, the charging current is 1C until voltage reaches at 8.7V. The whole process is up to 3 hours or ends when charging current is less than 60mA(0.02C)

Usage Warning

  • Do not disassemble, crush and incinerate, drop or leave high pressure on the battery.
  • Do not short circuit the battery
  • Do not expose the battery to temperatures above 45 degrees or below 0 degrees

Storage Instruction

  • Keep the environment dry and clean
  • Ensure the battery at a storage voltage (7.08-7.62V) if not in use for a long time. If voltage is above or below that level, please charge or discharge battery
  • Battery must be fully charged and discharged routinely every three month. After battery is fully discharged, recharge the battery to 50% capacity
