i have just bought one of these RTF, and the manual for it is , missing. I contacted the vendor who linked me into a three page manual. Is anyone aware of a proper manual that tells you things that might be useful. Being new to this I really don’t want to make it up,as I go along.

There is no such thing as what you are looking for, I got a wizard too and was also new to the hobby, there is no user manual to speak of for any of these.
But before I bought in I did a lot of research and found it's all similar stuff, and once you know the basics you will be on your way to understanding what you need to know to get started and airborne.

The Wizard X220 is an SPRacing F3 6DOF Flight Controller based quad which is the one I have, the X220S is an F4 based quad, that is the only thing specific about it and the rest is essentially the same basic parts.
If you have any questions I may be able to help, just let us know on this thread and there are many a fine and knowledgeable pilots here that will help you along the way, but it will take some time and YouTube is your friend in this.
I bought the ARF version because I wanted to go with Fr(ee)Sky stuff for the Remote Control and Receiver parts but it sounds like you got the RTF with the FlySky RC and Rcvr?

Mine is not stock anymore, stuff gets broken and you have to fix it, but this one of my 3 wizards is pretty close to stock. They have been good birds except for the ESC's so when they break/blow-up/catch on fire, just upgrade them.

Agreed Randy, the list of very knowledgeable pilots you have given is bang on. But so far as I know, you own, fly, crash and rebuild the most wizards on here. I think you have a lot to offer as far as experience on this bird. Although I hope you’re not crashing too much ? Funny how you seem to have great days, good days and not so good days. BTW welcome Embay

Hey Wayne, hope all is well buddy! I haven't crashed hard in a while, I am really getting the hang of this stuff, and hitting smaller and smaller gaps every time I go out. And to think, it only took 3 months of flying 12 batts every single day to get better :) Now that I got my early Christmas present I get to burn up to 22 batts a day. I guess I am getting to be a Wizard X220 expert after all, my background helped a lot, but this forum and the great people on it did the majority of heavy lifting to get me where I am. I am always willing to give back any chance I get.

Thank you all for your kind replies and words. I have been researching long and hard, hence my choice of drone. Now I am researching how best to use it. I have got myself a simulator, and seem to be crashing far more than I should be. But I will keep,using it, easier to pass rest than take more out of the bank for a new drone.

You are doing whats needed for the quickest learning curve. Don't be scared to go into your sim and play with the quad settings like: pov, camera angle, expo and etc.

Totally different to those birds Embay. I was similar in that I flew bebop 2 which I still use a lot for photography and video. Flying in acro mode is very different but as I have recently learned from the more experienced pilots on here, it it better to get into that mode as quickly as possible. Try not to spend too much time in self leveling mode. You will crash no matter how long you spend on a sim but that’s all part of it. Most of the time a crash won’t do major damage though. You’re gonna be addicted in no time. Lol
