Welcome to the Pocket Drone User Group!

The Pocket Drone is a foldable tricopter made by airdroids after an extremely successful Kickstarter campaign. Unfortunately it did not live up to it's hype, but with it's APM for a brain it is definitely possible to make it fly after performing a few modifications to the supplied airframe.
As DIYDrones is the home of the APM and the Arducopter firmware creators, it's also the place to be for people who are trying to get the most out of their Pocket Drone.

With a little help of the Pocket Drone Community User Guide, even people completely new to drone flying should be able to get their Pocket Drone up in the air!

How Many Pocket Drones Are There?

I bought one Pocket drone for $99 (NIB), and I just picked up a slightly used one on Ebay for $75 (free shipping).

Any idea how many total Pocket Drones were built and shipped?Thanks - Mike

3D printed legs

Hey, just joined up here after buying a PD for $200 on eBay. First thing is that the legs fell off. I am going to go through the whole "fix it" process before I even try to fly. (The enhanced guide) I hear the service from the company is non-existent? I build tons of stuff for drones and am a 3D Iris+ guy (APM, etc) I figure the guts alone are worth more than $200. Here are some "snap on" legs that are super tough and also pop into the little clips by the leg holes.
