So I've been watching youtube all weekend . Building race drones , seems like these drones dont have instructions ? Am I wrong ? Just thought I would ask . I watched one video where the guys said it had instructions . But that was just one video . I'am learning a lot the terminology. I do have an electronics background but that was many years ago , but its coming back to OHMS Law , Power equation etc. This summer gonna renovate my outside shed into RC heaven . New work place for building my drones , battery charging . Storage for my hobby . Lipos make me nervous , dont want them in my house ! LOL Until I get my first drone will be still researching the web , youtube and the forums . One more question , for my first drone which I wanna build , which would be the easiest to build and fly ?

I've been flying drones for years, started when I was 9.
This is my first ever racing drone, it's an Emax nighthawk pro 280, it's very affordable and has many many excellent reviews. All that is required is a battery and receiver but if you want to build,move heard good,things about the Emax nighthawk 250 where you actually have to build it. I'm waiting for my nighthawk 280 to arrive. I currently fly a phantom and a few other toy grade quads.

Recently bought a OCDAY 250 Quad racer from someone else who crashed it taken off. He gave up on it. Problem I am having is no manuals with it. It has a flysky i6 transmitter and a CC3D flight controller. It doesn't self level very good. Don't know what to change to correct problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Please explain cleanflying and dead flying. Not sure what you mean to do. I do not have any cables to hook up to a laptop. It will Hoover some ok. But flying it wants to drift off and need correction

Do you think I should buy a new flight control board with paper work and go from there.

Hey Bill, Maybe start a new thread to get help in the General Technical help forum. But as to Cleanflight there are some good Youtube Videos by Painless360.
