    Exclamation HELP - New Aton Plus Not Working

    I just bought a new Aton Plus, my first drone, and started to get it ready to fly. I charged the battery for the drone completely and put fresh batteries in the transmitter. I followed the preparing for flight section of the owner's manual, turned the transmitter on and put it in film mode and the display was exactly as it showed in the manual. Once I plugged the battery into the drone, the power LED flashed slowly, the info LED became solid a few seconds later, the power LED began to flash quicker at the same time info became solid. About ten seconds later, the power LED began to flash even faster and then it remained flashing. I tried this sequence multiple times and I always got the same flashing power LED and solid info LED. The manual says that a fast flashing power LED means it has lost transmitter signal. I even tried putting another new set of batteries in the transmitter. Can anyone help?

    On the right side of the display on the transmitter is the aircraft battery meter. are you getting a reading for the battery level?

    No, I have the transmitter battery level, but the battery level for drone is not displayed.

    Sounds like you need to rebind the transmitter to your Aton

    try this. got this set of instructions when I bought a new TX.

    1. Return the transmitter to the default settings.
    A.
    Ensure the transmitter is off.
    B.
    Press and hold the AUX2 button and the Menu Down button.
    C.
    While holding both buttons, turn the transmitter on.
    D.
    Continue holding both buttons for 3 seconds until the
    transmitter beeps. Release both buttons.
    E.
    The transmitter is reset and is in bind mode (bl
    inking LED, LCD
    displays rotating segments).
    F.
    Confirm that the helicopter is powered on and is in binding
    mode (
    Inf
    o
    Status LED blinking fast green).
    G.
    Move the transmitter to within one foot of the helicopter. The
    transmitter and helicopter should bind (indicated by a tone from
    the transmitter, solid green LED on the transmitter, solid green
    Power
    and
    Info
    Status LEDs on the helicopter, and the Disarmed
    Flight Screen on the transmitter LCD)
    Peace, J.J.

    Thank you for the tip, I tried it and the transmitter connected with the drone in only a few seconds. Now, I will be able to enjoy my new drone!

    I'm glad its working for you now!

    Be cautious with it for your first flights. It's not normal for you to have to rebind the transmitter. Hopefully it will perform flawlessly now, but fly carefully for a while until you are sure its going to be reliable.

    Another piece of advice we usually give new Aton owners is to make sure that the firmware in your Aton is up-to-date. If it was just purchased new, it probably is, but it would be a good idea to check. An easy way to check the version is to use the mobile app. The current version is: 3.3.2.13.

    Good luck and have fun!
