Understanding your 1s whoop

To fly FPV (first person view) we need the below mentioned equipment. First-time users should familiarize themselves with their equipment before attempting to fly them.

1. Inspect your whoop:
Check your whoop carefully, identifying key components like the motors, camera, antenna, and propellers.

2. Understand its operation:
Know that the whoop moves by varying the speed of these motors. Two motors spin in a clockwise direction and two in a counter-clockwise direction. The combined effect of varying these speeds will allow your drone to move forward, backward, up, down, and rotate.

3. Safety precautions:
Ensure the propellers are tightly fitted. Make sure you are in an open space away from people and obstacles when you fly your whoop for the first time.

4. Connecting battery:
When connecting the battery to the whoop, slide the battery into the battery tray and then connect the battery and whoop power connector, make sure to align the connector with the notch and red wire to red and black to black.

Handling and Understanding the Batteries

Lithium Polymer (LiPo) batteries are the powerhouse for your drone. Misusing them can result in shortened battery life or even damage to your drone. Follow these guidelines:

1. Charging:
Never leave charging batteries unattended. They can become very hot and, in rare cases, cause a fire.

2. Storage:
Store your LiPo batteries in a fire-resistant container, at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.

3. Usage:
Avoid fully draining your LiPo batteries. This can greatly reduce their lifespan. Most drones have a low-battery warning – heed it.

4. Disposal:
Dispose of damaged or old LiPo batteries at a battery recycling facility.

Charging LiPo batteries can be more complex than charging other batteries, but following these steps can simplify the process

1. Connect the charger:
Plug your charger into a power source.

2. Connect the battery:
Connect your battery to the charger.

3. Set the mode:
This is typically set to 4.2 volt for Lipo, in certain cases the battery is High voltage Lipo, denoted by LiHv. These LiHv can charge upto 4.35 volts. The 6 in 1 charger has a switch for each port to set the voltage. Set it to match the type of battery being plugged into the port.

4. Connect the battery:
Connect your battery to the charger.

5. Begin charging:
Start the charging process, and remember never to leave the charging process unattended.

6. End of charging:
The charger will indicate when the charging process is complete.

Never leave charging batteries unattended. They may become very hot and, in rare cases, cause a fire.
