The legs of the GHOSTDRONE come off when landing.

Weak Propellers ¶ 

The GHOSTDRONE's propellers come off or don't spin fast enough.

Uncalibrated Compass ¶ 

Your GHOSTDRONE doesn't recognize Cardinal Directions.

Faulty Gimbal ¶ 

The Gimbal that holds the camera on the GHOSTDRONE comes off or doesn't hold the camera.

Battery Issues ¶ 

Your GHOSTDRONE displays ERR1 or ERR4 message on screen.

Frozen Battery ¶ 

If your Ehang GHOSTDRONE won't turn on or displays ERR4 on the display screen, replace the battery or send it back to manufacturer.

Battery Glitch ¶ 

If your Ehang GHOSTDONE is frozen on an ERR1 message on the display screen, reboot the device. Alternatively, take the battery out and reinsert in.

Your GHOSTDONE doesn't calibrate the drone compass with your phone.

Faulty Gimbal ¶ 

The gimbal on your GHOSTDRONE won't stabilize

Weight Adjust Interrupted ¶ 

If the gimbal on your GHOSTDRONE won't stabilize, make sure the camera is attached to the gimbal before you power the gimbal on.

Loose Gimbal ¶ 

The gimbal on your GHOSTDRONE doesn't hold your camera securely.


I can't get the goggles to connect to the camera, any suggestions?

for the loose camera I made a little spacer that goes under the locking ring that took up the little bit of play between the camera and the holding bracket.

for the loose camera in the gimbal, i made a spacer that goes underneath the locking ring that took up the gap between the camera and the gimbal bracket. Holds much more securely now.
