    Thank you. I wonder why they took them down, are they trying to have bad customer service on purpose?

    The product is discontinued.

    They pull down all support for discontinued products after a while.

    A bit like Microsoft and Windows XP, ME, 3, 2, and 1.

    Oh one thing, the mushroom antenna that says tx, is that only for video transmission? And can I turn it off to save battery?

    Don't. There is no off / on switch. You would need to remove all the video system end to end. And never ever remove a TX antenna and then power on the TX module. It will blow the TX module output electronics.

    Don't chase a few extra seconds of flight time. Buy extra batteries and never ever discharge the battery below Nominal voltage in flight.

    Otherwise you will also be reporting the "My Drone just dropped from the sky no warning. It just powered down."

    Actually that happened twice yesterday, so I checked and the only thing I could find is the mushroom antenna was loose. Would that cause it to lose connection and drop?

    And just happened again. Fell right out of the sky for no apparent reason. I'm really starting to hate this thing, I had a $60 syma x8 that had great battery life and never had a problem. I can't get that from this unit, it's sad really.

    It happens if your battery has a problem or you keep flying with a low battery.

    The battery sags and the FC does an internal reset.

    You need to check the battery with a Lipo Checker. And never fly the model below 3.7V per cell. so thats 11.1V on a 3 cell battery.
