    I got my hands on a H37 drone review unit (thanks to PrimeHomes ) and I spent 3 days handling the mini quad-copter drone and I’m quite impressed with the drone.

    What’s In The Box?

    The drone comes in a portable box. There’s nothing to flashy about the packaging so I’ll go straight to what’s inside.

    Inside the box, you’ve got the Elfie Drone, USB Charger that looks like a Flash Drive. I actually thought it was a flash drive before I actually brought it out and examined it properly.

    There’s also the Instructional Manual, a velvet pouch and an extra set of propellers just in case something goes wrong during the flight and any of your drone’s propellers gets damaged.

    Battery

    JJRC H37 Elfie Drone Review - An Affordable Smartphone Controlled Drone 7

    The JJRC H37 Elfie Drone comes with a 500 mAh LiPo Battery. The first time I opened the back of the drone, the battery wasn’t plugged in and I found it a little bit difficult fixing it correctly the first time but after fixing the battery about 3 – 4 times everything got quite easy.

    JJRC H37 Elfie Drone Review - An Affordable Smartphone Controlled Drone 8

    What I don’t really like about the battery is the fact that you have to remove it from the drone and charge it separately. Try to be careful when you’re handling the battery so you won’t end up cutting the wires while trying to unplug it.

    JJRC H37 Elfie Drone Review - An Affordable Smartphone Controlled Drone 9

    The battery takes about 15-25 minutes to charge fully. Once the battery gets low, the drone would automatically shut down when you try to lift it off so you have to plug it in with the charger.

    JJRC H37 Elfie Drone Review - An Affordable Smartphone Controlled Drone 10

    Once you plug it in the USB charger displays a red charging light and stops displaying once the battery is full.

    Camera
    JJRC H37 Elfie Drone Review - An Affordable Smartphone Controlled Drone 12
    The camera is a wide range 0.3MP camera. Wi-Fi FPV allows the drone to capture photos and videos with resolution of 720 x 576 pixels. Recording up to five minutes of video only takes about 23 MB. All pictures and videos are stored directly on your smartphone hence there’s need for an SD card.

    You can find the video files are stored in the VS FPV folder.

    JJRC H37 Elfie Drone Review - An Affordable Smartphone Controlled Drone 13
    The camera’s real-time video feed can be displayed on your mobile device (smartphone/tablet) through the VS FPV App or in the folder of the app recommended by your manual.

    Note : Your Drone Manual may ask you to install a different App. My review unit requires VS FPV.

    First Flight

    JJRC H37 Elfie Drone Review - An Affordable Smartphone Controlled Drone 21

    Before your first flight, you need the install the APP recommended on your manual on your mobile device. After unfolding the arms, power ON the quad and look turn on the app and connect to the drone’s wifi Hotspot. (It’s usually an open WiFi network)

    In the case of mine it’s “trust-toys-6cce69”

    JJRC H37 Elfie Drone Review - An Affordable Smartphone Controlled Drone 22

    Once it’s connected launch the app and tap on connect. You should see the live feed and the virtual joysticks displaying above the feed. Select On to turn on the drone. Usually, by default the propellers are automatically set to be in idle mode so you have to tap on the icon that’s located on the right side of the drone speed (the one displaying 30 is the drone speed)

    JJRC H37 Elfie Drone Review - An Affordable Smartphone Controlled Drone 23

    Once you’re done, push up the throttle stick (left one) and the drone will start to rise. Please use your manual if you don’t understand. Trust me I tried flying the drone without reading the manual properly and I couldn’t even control it.

    JJRC H37 Elfie Drone Review - An Affordable Smartphone Controlled Drone 24
    I don’t recommend flying indoors if you’ve not gotten used to the controls. It’s best you start outdoors.. Also I recommend you leave the default speed at 30 until you’re perfect with it.

    In case of emergency you can use the “Stop” button, this will stop all the motors instantly.

    Here’s The Flight Test Video :

    JJRC H37 Flight Control

    You can control the drone in two ways, using the virtual sticks or through gravity sensor by tilting the phone. Basically the JJRC Elfie H37 can be controlled just the way you play a mobile game,
    JJRC H37 Elfie Drone Review - An Affordable Smartphone Controlled Drone 25

    When you want to land your drone, you just need to press the arrow-down button, and the drone will land and stop its motors.

    Common Issues With The Drone

    Of course I won’t say I didn’t have my own share of technical mishaps when using the drone.
    JJRC H37 Elfie Drone Review - An Affordable Smartphone Controlled Drone 26

    1. Drone Keeps Flying To One Side.

    It means it’s miscalibrated and you need to recalibrate the drone. Place it on a flat surface and connect it to your phone and launch the app. Turn on the drone, go to settings (gear icon) and select calibration. ( it’s the last icon on the settings menu). When you do this, the drone’s front and rear LED lights would blink continuously for about 7-10 seconds. Once it’s done calibrating your drone is ready to fly.

    2. Drone Not Turning On After Crash Landing

    Unplug the battery and plug it in back.

    3. Drone Goes Off When It’s About Taking Off
    The battery’s probably low so all you have to do is to charge the battery

    4. Camera Feed Not Displaying On Your Phone

    Simply close the app (don’t minimize it). Turn off your WiFi and turn it on again. Once you’re reconnected to the drone, launch the app and connect. Everything should be okay

    Verdict 💡

    I’d say the drone is pretty good and one of the best at this price range, however I’m not okay with the fact that you’ll have to keep unplugging the battery to charge it and the lack of an obstacle sensor makes it a little bit difficult to handle in enclosed areas but anyone that can handle this drone perfectly would certainly have no problems handling the ones with obstacle sensors.

    How To Easily Start A Blog On WordPress With Free Themes 41

    Do
    you wish to start up a new WordPress blog
    or website and wondering how to do it on a budget? Well, WordPress is a free,
    open source CMS that allows for 100% customization. In this short guide, I am
    going to show you how you can start a WordPress blog/website on a budget or
    without any technical knowledge.
    This
    guide would come in handy to bloggers who intends moving from their blogging
    platform to WordPress, web hobbyist, and those who just bought a WordPress
    hosting server
    and wondering how to put their business online.

    The pre-requisites to starting a new WordPress blog?

    To
    start a blog/website on WordPress, there are some important things you must
    have beforehand. Under listed are some of these fundamental tools.
    ü  A registered domain name (e.g. naijatechguy.com)
    ü  A web hosting account (shared, cloud or
    VPS
    )
    ü  Reliable internet connection
    They
    are just the three primary
    requirements for starters
    . Any hosting package you buy comes with a
    cPanel (control panel/dashboard) where you can manage your files and websites.
    It is on this cPanel that you’d gain access to create your first free WordPress
    blog/website.
    There
    are lots of packages available in the cPanel, among them is Softaculous App
    Installer
    . This package offers you free access to install various CMS
    platforms freely and easily. All the packages on cPanel are important and serve
    for specific purposes. But since our interest is on creating WordPress websites,
    we’ll only focus on Softaculous App Installer.

    Starting the blog



    #1. Install WordPress



    How To Easily Start A Blog On WordPress With Free Themes 42
    Log
    in to your hosting cPanel and scroll down until you get to the Softaculous Apps
    Installer. Now, click on the WordPress Icon to trigger the website installation
    process.
    How To Easily Start A Blog On WordPress With Free Themes 43
    Choose
    between quick or custom installation. The “Quick” installation
    creates a default WordPress website with preset settings while the “Custom
    installation allows you to customize your website from the root.
    Now,
    you will be required to enter the following details
    How To Easily Start A Blog On WordPress With Free Themes 44
    ü  Domain name
    ü  Desired website name and description
    ü  Your admin details (username and
    password). Note: This will be what you will use to log in to the website/blog
    admin panel/dashboard and it has to be private.
    ü  Choose your website language
    ü  Scroll down and click on “Install
    WordPress”
    How To Easily Start A Blog On WordPress With Free Themes 45
    After
    the website installation, the next thing to do is to start with free themes. To
    access your new blog/website admin panel/dashboard, attach /wp-admin
    after the initial domain name. This is how your admin WP admin URL looks like; http://tutorial.wordpress.com/wp-admin/.
    Log in to your admin dashboard by using the admin details you defined during
    the installation.

    #Install themes

    WordPress
    works with highly customizable themes/templates. There are many free themes to
    customize the look of your new website. Usually, the screenshot below shows you
    how your website will appear immediately after installation.
    How To Easily Start A Blog On WordPress With Free Themes 46
    This
    appearance does not appeal to anyone, so it needs to be changed. To change this
    default theme and use a visitor-friendly theme that would interest your visitors,
    locate the themes option on your dashboard and click on it. It’s normally found
    at– Appearance ==> Themes
    How To Easily Start A Blog On WordPress With Free Themes 47
    Click
    on the “Add new” button
    You’ll
    be redirected to a new page where you’d find lots of free beautiful themes with
    user-friendly templates. However, you can define your theme choice by filtering
    the results to the latest, featured, popular, no. of columns, and etc.


    How To Easily Start A Blog On WordPress With Free Themes 48
    Once
    you see a theme you like, hover your mouse over it and click on the preview
    button to see what it actually looks like on the front-end (appearance to
    visitors).
    If you are comfortable with the
    preview, go ahead and install the theme as your new website theme. It will
    override the previous theme template and your website will now be acceptable to
    the people viewing it.
    Note: I’ll normally recommend a SEO friendly theme that comes with social
    media sharing buttons and newsletter marketing tools. They’re necessary for
    your marketing and/or blogging
    success
    .  

    #3.
    Customize the free theme to taste

    In other to make the theme more
    convenient and load faster for your readers, WordPress allows you to customize
    the theme’s appearance via a built-in customizer. You can access the customizer
    here – Appearance ==> Customizer.
    What
    more?
    Your new website/blog is now up
    and running, you should start creating engaging contents that will bring more
    traffic to the new website. Also, you may need to install certain plugins
    to make your new blog/website modern, attractive, and good enough for
    advertisers.

    Breaking News : Diamond Bank Has Been Sold To Access Bank, Customers Express Concern

    Breaking News :  Diamond Bank Has Been Sold To Access Bank, Customers Express Concern 49
    I can’t categorically say what’s happening within Diamond Bank but this news may come as a shock to their customers.

    Breaking News :  Diamond Bank Has Been Sold To Access Bank, Customers Express Concern 50

    According to the Vanguard :

    Access Bank Plc has finally acquired Diamond Bank Plc. According to insiders, the official announcement of the transaction will be made in the course of the week by the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, according to TheCable. Another source said confirmed that the deal has been sealed, awaiting final ratification from the regulatory body.

     The acquisition was midwifed by the CBN in a bid to further consolidate the banking industry, sources informed. Last week, Diamond Bank announced its decision to drop its international operating licence to focus on national operations following capitalisation issues.

    Uzoma Dozie, the bank’s Chief Executive Officer, confirmed the development in a statement released on Friday. Dozie had said: “With this approval, the bank will cease to operate as an international bank. “The re-licensing as a national bank supports Diamond Bank’s objective of streamlining its operations to focus resources on the significant opportunities in the Nigerian retail banking market, and the economy as a whole.

    The move follows Diamond Bank’s decision to sell its international operations, which included the disposal of its West African Subsidiary in 2017 and Diamond Bank UK, the sale of which is currently in its final stages.” Broadcasting: NTA drops foreign satellites for NiGCOMSAT1R “The change to national bank status also enables the bank to maintain a lower minimum capital requirement of 10 per cent, as against 15 per cent required for international banks.” The bank recorded its worst month on record in November with share plunging to 0.61k per unit on November 30, 2018.

    I wonder what this means for Diamond Bank users, well let’s keep our fingers crossed.

    To keep myself busy during this strike, I multitask a lot – develop websites, blog, do graphics design jobs and develop user interfaces and experiences. These are actually stuffs I’ve always been doing, the strike just gives me more time to improve myself. So without further ado let me get started with the 3 Easy High Paying Tech Jobs You Can Do While ASUU Is On Strike.

    3 Easy High Paying Tech Jobs You Can Do While ASUU Is On Strike 52

    1. UX/UI Designing

    A UX/UI Designer is a person that designs how and app, website or software would look like and how it would work.  UX/UI designer jobs can pay between 50k – 1.2m  and the minimum amount is set by you as a designer or by your employer if you aren’t a freelance designer. As a UX/UI designer, you have to understand that it’s not just about designing, It’s about making your prototype usable and straightforward.

    You can go through my portfolio and see the kind of jobs I’ve done  –

    Becoming A UX/UI designer isn’t rocket science but you need to be willing to learn and read a lot.
    Make sure to join design communities like Dribbble, Uplabs and Behance.

    Softwares you’ll need

    • Adobe XD
    • Sketch (Mac Only)
    • Figma 
    • Invision

    Don’t forget to look up some videos on Youtube related to UX/UI. Stay Creative.

    2. Digital Marketing

    Digital marketing is another high paying job you may want to check out. It’s just about selling products online and promoting them to the right audience. You will need a Facebook Page for this.
    Now you don’t have to be the owner of the product before you do this, you can simply go to a shop ask the owner for the price of certain goods. Add your profit to the the price of the products and also let customers know that they might need to pay a shipping fee. 
    Once you are done run the advert on Facebook and attend to your customers. Remember the key to a successful marketing business are happy customers, try to give them discounts and watch as your business will grow online.

    • Create About 7 Random Logo Designs
    • Run An Advert On Facebook and promote the designs
    • On the ad mention that you are designing logos for a really low price – maybe N2,500 
    • Add your whatsapp number to the ad so they can contact you
    • Wait for your customers

    Here’s the logic here, you promote the ad with around 2k or 3k to make the ad reach more than 10,000 targeted people.  Let’s assume 100 people out of the 10,000 people contact you. 2,500 x 100 is equivalent to N250K .

    So you earned 250k from an Ad  you promoted with around N2500-N4000. These days you work smart not extra hard.

    If you can’t use Photoshop or don’t have a laptop, you can buy my Ebook, I mentioned how to design without photoshop skills and also designing on a phone on the device. Cheers
