    No, not to help me talk more boringly.! lol
    My son bought me a drone for a pesent a year ago and to my shame i was so busy, ill or working i didnt have time to use it.
    Now i have lost the bit of paper which tells me which software to download. Because its not well known make i am unsure what to use,
    I assume its a reasonable Chinse clone but want to ask what app i can use, Not sure if any of you good folks have any experience in these areas and where there is a universal phone app,Mines the sort you attach the i phone to the controller,tts the software bit that goes in the phone I need,
    Any help ,advice or ideas please?

    I can't help directly, but I often find that by searching online for user manual or user guide I can find the info I need.

    If it has any branding mark on it at all you will probably find info on the manufacturer's/seller's site. If that doesn't help. google something basic like "drones buy" and look at the images search result for one which looks like yours.

    If all else fails, I have a friend who was big into drones a while back and who now works at / runs a flying academy where they also teach people to fly drones. If you PM me a photo he might be able to identify it.

    Just wondering, what are going to do with.your drone as you live in an urban area? There are drone nerds who meet at weekends on the open ground near Chingford station who could probably help you.

    Your best bet is to see if you can find a drone forum. There's bound to be a few. My experience of Chinese computer-controlled machinery has been that there are countless companies producing essentially the same thing from a generic design. By that I mean some are better built and finished than others, but they all use the same generic software to run them.

    Or you can attach a camera and snake on your neighbours if they have illegal extensions, breaking the rule of 6, using a hose pipe, growing cannabis, etc

    If you can handle a simple game console controller you should be fine.
