    Alias Do's and Don't's

    Here are some Don't's
    * Don't takeoff or land on the ground if possible, due to dirt intake.
    * Don't allow your props to free spin backward in the wind, due to brush wear pattern.
    * Don't oil your bearings, due to dirt intake.
    * Flying around trees, don't fly any higher than your QRT (Quad removal tool) can reach.
    * Don't fly with high vibration, due to the possibility of damage to other parts.
    * Don't drain your battery all the way down, when the alarm goes off land it in your hand, due to LiPo damage.
    * Don't fly without a flight check. check for lose screws, bent shafts, damaged props.
    * Don't fly in strong wind, due to Mother nature has more horsepower than you. If you do Keep it low in mode 3.

    What are your Do's and Don't's

    Definitely "dont fly without a flight check. check for loose screws, bent shafts, damaged props."

    yesterday i was flying and outta nowhwere my Alias dropped right out the sky on my street. a car was coming along and semi-swerved!

    turns out that the screw that holds the prop was loose and when i recovered the alias, that prop was like 20 feet away. now im down for a couple of days and ordered a set of those screws on ebay.

    Don't fly it in a small room because it caries a lot more momentum than the other 2 micro quads I have...

    Do swap to v959 motors. I've had mine in for about ~10 runs and so far they've been bulletproof.

    On windier days stand downwind of your Alias while flying, so if you start to lose it, the wind will blow it towards you- not away from you..

    1) Don't push throttle full up when you meant to push pitch full up.
    2) Don't fly it into the sun.
    3) If 1) leads to 2) cut the throttle now before it becomes too late.

    Not exactly my don'ts -- more like don't do again.

    The UFO thing is great fun. Especially if you have an instagtor on the ground to encourage people lol.

    I've had 5 or 6 people outside a grocery story all pointing and staring at it at night. I checked again a minute later and they had their phones out and were filming it lol..

    I have to say it is pretty funny when people immediately stop what they are doing because they think that they finally witnessed a UFO. I always have people come to talk to me when flying in public. Here's a good suggestion. Fly it near a college, you could use your alias to meet chicks. It might be better than using a puppy to get female attention
