So I received one of my frames to try with the DR1. Here are my results with a 75mm frame and smaller props.
CLICK HERE Updated – 3/7/2018 (DR1 FPV Drone upgrades and mods/battery mod/antenna mod and more.) (DO NOT BUY FRAMES UNLESS SPECIFIED! BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK UNLESS I SPECIFIY SOMETHING I’VE TRIED WORKS. I USE PHOTOSFOR REFERENCE SOMETIMES! THINK!!!!!!!)
There are no spare parts for the DR1 from Spin Master. They won’t answer any questions about the drone itself. So I will be updating people on what third Party frames and parts can be used and integrated into the DR1 for repairs.
We can start with the insides and as I progress with everything, I will update as I go along.
The plan is to start with a few different frames and solder a new on/off switch on the DR1 as mine is FD.
I know it seems hard to do things like this and is intimidating. But you can’t let fear take the wheel and steer. Got to be adventurous and if you love the DR1 as I do you’ll be looking for ways to fix it. Even if you have other drones you’ll still be playing with this one!
Hands down for a gooood cheap FPV drone for just play or anything you can think of. I recommend Air Hogs DR1 FPV drone for $70 after taxes at Walmart. They’ll have it listed for $100 in stores but you can still price match their own website.

My personal opinion for devices on WiFi connection for the FPV feature I’d say have been the iPod touch 6gen out of the devices I’ve tried from samsung galaxy 3s, galaxy emerge and some LG phone.
The 2.4ghz controller gives you more control over a drone rather than only Wi-Fi app control. Two speeds on the DR1, beginner and advanced. I strongly recommend beginner (speed 1) if you aren’t used to high speeds on RC vehicles and are new to drones.
