@waseeq I had the same thing happen to mine. It's caused by one of the cells of the battery being drained, the charger/balancer doesn't "recognize" it. What I did was take a AA 1.5V battery that had a two wire connector hooked to it and stuck the two wires in each hole on the end. I then hooked a volt meter to two wires and stuck the ends of those into the prongs of the battery which plug right into the drone (it read like 7mV). Where the charger plugs in with a three wire connector, I put two wires sticking out of the positive and the neutral. You can tell which is which if you take the battery out of its case and look in the inside at the connector. I took the two wires from the 2.5V battery and held them against the two wires coming out of drone 7.4V battery, held it there for about 30 seconds or so, watched the volt meter slowly rise and then just plugged it into the battery charger/balancer. It forced the battery to give a "recognizable" voltage to the charger. All good now.... ;)

Have a similar problem. I was flying just well the last 2 days, sudenlly my Spyder XL stop syncing. I'm doing all the synch proccedures correctly, but just can't synch it any more.

The headlights are the ones that stop flashing. Once you sync you than have to push both sticks down and in to start the propelers. I made this mistake. If you continue reading the instructions, they tell you how to start and stop the blades, by pushing down and in or down and out on both sticks.

HD video drone from Propel, crashed and broke, ordered a new body, the new body was basically a new drone without the video camera. The new drone will not sync to the old controller. I removed all parts from the crashed drone and can still sync to the old circuit board, guess I'll have to replace the circuit board with the one from the crashed drone to be able to fly again. I'd never buy a drone from Propel. Absolutely no service. $200 for the drone and $60 for the new body and no response to emails from the company.

Yes Propel sucks I had a piece of s*** cheap-ass drone and it didn't work it burn up blah blah blah and told them about it they wanted me to ship it all pay for everything pretty much buy a new drone I didn't like the answer they gave me so I got a hold of the Better Business Bureau better known as the BBB they posted a form talking all kind of smack about Propel RC and next thing I know I got an email from one of the big wigs he sent me a brand new drone that was three times the value of my old room only problem was it only flow for 10 seconds after I installed the first person view and then he wouldn't contact me no more I just let it go that was months ago so I just figured !&&* with drones I went to rock crawlers and RC cars I'm good having a blast I go Airborne just not with propellers expecially Propel RC they're the worst drone company in the world

We were frustrated that ours wouldn’t sync. We tried everything in the instructions. Also, we kept waiting for two beeps that it said is supposed to happen when the RC and the flyer are synced. Well, ignore that. It’s only going to make one beep. Once synced, press the bottom left button to start the propellers. Finally!!! It works.

Albert! Yes sir! All of the above complaints were mine too. Your fix solved it. Up (beep) Down (beep), then hold in the bottom left button until it beeps. Sweet. I have a happy boy now (and a happy dad) Isn't it nuts that the instructions are so messed up?

Are the lights on the body flashing? Or the lights on the wings still flashing? If the lights on the body aren't flashing then it's synced. To turn on the propellers move both sticks down and in at the same time.

The lights on the body are flashing and the remote control will sync (stop flashing) but the lights on the drone continue to flash and not go solid, which would show it was synced with the remote.

I had the same issue. It tried to sync. The lights on the body continued to flash, but I was still able to fly it so I'm confused about the flashing lights.

I have had similar problem getting drone lights to stop flashing indicating sync. And ready to fly. I never have been able to do this sync process, I read manual over and over again and did the steps your suppose to do. Even tried 3 brands of new batteries thinking that was the problem. All I do to get drone up and flying is push all buttons and moving both controllers in no special order it gets drone woken up and flies and I'm controlling it as I should with no complaints. ????? Glich maybe ???

A little late, but if anyone else has this issue, open up the controller and check for loose /disconnected wires. My x12 started having this issue last night and took a lot of messing with the controller to get it to sync. I realized it was a controller based issue because as soon as I turned the controller on, it would act as though it instantly synced (no flashing lights). This morning I couldn't get it to sync at all. After opening the controller, I found a loose wire. I initially thought this wouldn't fix the issue considering it was part of the elevation /spin control. Resoldered the wire and voila! Problem solved! Far from the best drone but for the price, I have no complaints and I'm actually impressed with its performance in comparison with other drones in this price range.

I crashed my X15 into the fence. Broke off one of the arms. Glued it back on. Seems the one prop won't rev up. Can it be fixed?

Follow the instructions to sync. I have had my Propel HD Drone for three months nd it's still going strong! I did clip house that broke one of the support arms. I ended up purchasing two plastic bodies from Propel for whopping $3.50 each! Believe me when I say it was real P.I.T.A. to swap the motors/board/camera! For starters their are 32 micro screws! 7 on each arm and 4 on the body! My biggest problem was the routeing of the wires to the plug that plugs into the camera! The wire is "threaded" thru couple holes in the lower half of the shell. Had to de-solder/re-solder 4 very small wires! I had the experience and the proper sized soldering gun.

Price Update

From above;

"absolutely no service. $200 for the drone and $60 for the new body and no response to emails from the company."

$200 for the drone? Mine cost me $80.00 new.

$60 for "new body" , really? Currently $4.99 on the Propel web site.

I realize the prices are high when first manufactured . Just go to the company web site to get current price/availability on parts. Whats really odd is that allot of the HD drone parts "out of stock"

I'm using the HD drone as a trainer. Once I get good flying this drone I'll upgrade to DJI Phantom Pro

Yes the HD Video Drone is "cheap drone" but I'd rather train on "cheap drone" rather than an "expensive drone" !

I have two HD drones. Worked fine on day 1. Then I couldn’t sync it the next day

It works fine with the phone app but I really want to use the controllers.

I’ve done everything and I can’t fogire out why from one day to the next why it won’t work anymore

Like I said 2 drones. Same problem after getting them. Day 2 won’t sync. There has to be a reason for this. Unfortunately the propel support team is not the place to figure this out. I’ve tried.

Is Propel even in business anymore? There Customer Service phone (866 458-5151) does not work and their website does not have any replacement parts for sale ... says "Out of Stock on almost everything??

Anybody know how to contact Propel??

Thanks
