  1. I'm new to drones, and would like some assistance from the group. I recently purchased a used, damaged Ehang Ghostdrone 1.0. The damage is that the previous owner informed me that it had been in a crash and the orientation sensor was no longer functional, and he was unable to get a new one from Ehang. I still bought it since the price was so good that even if the drone never worked again, I still can use the 4k camera (gopro clone). I've contacted the company Ehang, and they have informed me that: * No sensors available for sale * No longer supporting this drone * No service manual or documentation available * No solution or help from Ehang....sorry. * The new version 2.0 is out....upgrade to that! This is very disappointing, since the drone hasn't had much use, and is only around 4 years old. "Good" consumer electronics companies support their products for at least 10 years, and I am very unhappy that Ehang (which is still a force in the drone industry in Asia) is being so unhelpful. Any advice on other ways to get my drone working again? PS: Please don't offer unhelpful advice like "just get a new one", or "you get what you pay for".....it won't answer my question.
  2. Hi, I'm new to the forum and drone piloting. I bought an inexpensive "toy" drone for learning to fly indoors, and a used, but broken drone on craigslist, hoping to fix it, and looking to purchase another used drone (dji) to learn on before spending more on a new drone. Currently studying for 107 drone pilot license. I look forward to sharing ideas and experiences and learning from all of you on this forum!
