Repairing a Cracked Syma X1 Quadcopter Frame

Repairing a Cracked Syma X1 Quadcopter Frame


Syma X1

Lighter quadcopters like the Syma X1 have a tendency to break especially after a series of hard landings. The Syma X1 Quadcopter frame can be repaired if cracked. The process can be completed rather easily with the right tools and some patience. Here’s how to repair a cracked frame.
Step 1:
Unplug the cable from the main circuit board. This cuts the power while you work on repairing the frame.

Step 2:
Bend the frame back into place. If you have to, use a strong adhesive such as Gorilla Glue to hold any broken frame pieces together.

Step 3:
Line up all of the lateral arms so that they are all at equal height. If any one of the lateral arms is higher or lower than another, the quadcopter will drift in one direction.

Step 4:
Plug the cable back into the main circuit board.

Step 5:
Fly the quadcopter to test your repair.

If you have followed each step carefully, the Syma X1 Quadcopter should fly perfectly. Remember, you must line up all of the lateral arms so that they are at equal height. If not, you will notice that your quadcopter will have the tendency to lean and drift in a certain direction. If this is the case, you can go back and repeat the steps paying special attention to Step 3. It should also be noted that the repair can be completed using a hot glue gun. In Step 2, you can use the glue gun to glue any broken pieces together.
