Maintenance and repair

Before each flight check list

 

  • Battery   Make sure the battery housing is intact and the terminal is clean. STOP using/charging the battery IMMEDIATELY if the housing is cracked, punctured, or deformed. Dispose of any used battery in compliance with your local safety regulations.

 

  • Charger   Inspect the charger, make sure the housing is intact with no visible damage and the contacts are clean.  STOP using the charger IMMEDIATELY if the housing is cracked, punctured, or deformed. Dispose of any discarded charger in compliance with your local safety regulations.

 

  • Propellers   Check the propellers for any visible damage; a bent blade could cause instability in flight, which could result in loss of control (and in turn crash the drone).  In addition, make sure the propellers can still be securely mounted to the drone.

 

  • Camera   Check for any visible damage to the lens.  Blemishes on the lens could affect photo and video quality.

 

  • Airframe   Check for any structural fatigue or damage to the central cross, make sure the wires connecting the motors and antennas are secured to the airframe.  Remove any dirt or grime that may have accumulated in the motor housings, battery contact, and USB port.

 

  • Landing feet   Check for any structural fatigue or damage, make sure the Wi-Fi antennas are secured to the two front feet.

 

  • Overall wear and tear   Check the drone for any visible damage. Remove any dirt or grime that may have accumulate between the central cross and the upper body.  STOP using the drone immediately if any wire or electronic component appears damaged (bare wire, warped PCB, etc.)
 

 

Storage

 

Battery

Store the battery away from direct sunlight in a cool and dry place where the ambient temperature is below 140°F/60°C.  If you plan on not flying your Bebop 2 after 50th flight, run the battery to 50% capacity before storing.

 

Drone

Store the drone away from direct sunlight in a cool and dry place.

 

 

Maintenance and cleaning

 

  • Camera   If necessary, use only designated lens-cleaning material for cleaning to avoid inadvertent damage to the lens.

 

  • Airframe   You may use compressed air to remove any dirt or grime that may have accumulated in the motor housings, battery contact, and USB port.  DO NOT use any moistened material for cleaning.

 

  • Propellers   Remove propellers from the drone prior to cleaning; use a dampened cloth to wipe down the blades.  Make sure the propellers are completely dry before mounting.
