There are so many people out there that are trying to get into the hobby of flying drones, but they have problems, because they do not know what they’re looking at – some of them are mis-lead on the Internet, because people give false information and reviews (that’s not going to happen here). Flying drones can be a really fantastic hobby and great fun for users of all ages and abilities. However there are unfortunate accidents where crashes and breakages happen. In these cases it is often a difficult decision over whether to invest in a whole new product or try to repair the old one. Like purchasing any product, research is the first step to finding the correct product for the job. I recently came across the Parrot Central Cross replacement for the Parrot A.R drone 2.0 and would like to share my findings with you.

Some tools are necessary to replace the central cross but these are included in the package so users get straight into the repair as soon as the product is received.
