Hello everyone from Florence, SC! I recently bought a well used Phantom 1 to learn on but when I watch different videos I'm left wondering what I bought. Every video says turn the drone on...I can't. There isn't a switch. As soon as I hook up the battery the drone powers up and starts warming up. Also I haven't seen it in any video but there is a USB cable in the battery compartment. Its only 3 to4 inches long...but its there. Can anyone please tell me what I have? Thanks in advance, Greg

Without picture or model number it's hard to say what you have Google numbers that you can find on drone one of those should tell you what you have

Thanks for everything guys. I figured the previous owner made some changes and installed the self tightening props. I have the gimbal and camera I just took them off for the photos. I have prop guards and extra tall legs and am looking into FPV with the necessary upgrades. I'm also having a complete ball learning how to fly the Phantom. Can't wait for FPV...I don't want to fly it and further than I can see. Oh, P.S. I'm apologizing now for all the questions I'm going to have. Any of you in or around Florence, SC?
