Vectron Wave - Getting Started

You will need:

  • 1 x Vectron Wave
  • 1 x Charger
  • 6 x AA Premium Alkaline Non-Rechargeable Batteries (not included)
  • 1 x Phillips Screwdriver (not included)

Install the batteries. Open the battery compartment on the back of your charger using a Phillips head screwdriver. Place the 6 AA batteries in the battery compartment, making sure you are putting these in the right way.

Charge your Vectron Wave. Plug the charger wire into the Vectron wave, move the power switch on the charger into the CHG position, and you will see a blinking red light on the charger. The Vectron Wave is now charging. When the light changes to an orange light, your Vectron Wave will be ready to fly.

Check your environment. The Vectron Wave is an indoor only toy, so before flying, make sure you are indoors, away from any other Infrared devices, bright lights, air vents or open windows.

Turn the Vectron Wave on. Have fun.

Where can I fly my Vectron Wave?

Your Vectron Wave is designed to be flown indoors only, so do not fly it outside! The room you are in should have lots of space to fly with no breakable objects.

Try to avoid direct sunlight or other IR (infrared) devices. The IR signal will not work well near sunlight so you may lose connection and crash. Turn off any ceiling fans and stay away from any other air vents.

Follow these tips and you will be a Vectron Wave expert in no time!
