Sky Rider X-31 Shockwave

I bought a Sky Rider X-31 Shockwave at a closeout store and I am experiencing a couple of strange issues,

First, the drone has way more drift than I have seen in video reviews. It randomly drifts in different directions, and while I can adjust it with the pitch, roll, and yaw buttons, it just starts drifting in another direction.

Second, the camera feed is upside down. I have to place my phone upside down in the holder, making all the buttons upside down too, or else everyone I film appears to be standing on their heads. I also have to fix the footage using video editing software.

Am I doing something wrong, or was this drone at the closeout store because it is from a defective production run? :thinking:

The Sky Rider X-31 Shockwave is a great quadcopter drone with a built-in WiFi camera. Based on my research, it’s easy to fly as long as there is little to no wind, but you do need to learn how to properly hover at a low altitude to set up the trims and keep it stable. The drone is capable of performing 360-degree flips and tricks, allowing you to capture exciting aerial footage with the onboard camera. Overall, the X-31 Shockwave seems to be a solid and fun drone option for both beginners and more experienced pilots looking to get into aerial photography and videography.

It’s so sad to learn about the problems with your Sky Rider drone, particularly the high drift and reversed video stream. You may have gotten a faulty item, which could account for the closeout store’s markdown.

Robust drones ought to hover steadily without drifting too much. Frequently altering pitch, roll, and yaw to counteract drift indicates a problem with the flight controller or sensors. Drones should produce a natural, right-side-up video; the upside-down camera feed is particularly peculiar.

The reason this item ended up at the closeout store was probably because of ongoing technical problems. For a replacement or refund, get in touch with the store or manufacturer. These simple issues should not arise with drones at that price range.
