How To Trim XDrone

Requirements

Before attempting to trim the XDrone go through our lesson titled ‘How To Fly XDrone’.

How

To trim the XDrone you have to use the silver buttons next to and beneath the joysticks.

Regardless, in most cases when an XDrone is not flying perfectly straight it’s because the user has not calibrated the sensors correctly.

To trim use the correct trim button and adjust it to your liking:

  1. The silver button beneath the left joystick trims it counter clockwise and clockwise.

  2. The silver button next to the left joystick trims it up/down.

  3. The silver button beneath the right joystick trims it left/right.

  4. The silver button next to the right joystick trims it forward/backward.

Now you know how to trim your XDrone. Go out there and practice! Remember that 99% of the time your XDrone is not balanced it’s because you took more than 3 seconds to place it on a flat surface after plugging in the battery. The trim is only for minor adjustments. Read our article on how to fly the XDrone before your first flight.
