Could you take a screenshot and share the image on this thread? It will help us diagnose the issue! Make sure you are using the latest version of Google Chrome if you can, and double-check that you completed each of the setup steps in this lesson.
@vangj We have not tested any other battery with CoDrone Mini so we can't recommend anything other than the CoDrone Mini battery. Some things to be aware of if you choose to try another battery with a higher discharge rate (35C vs 30C):
The center of mass may be affected which will affect the flight and stability of the drone
Battery polarities vary and it may not match the polarity of the drone battery
@vangj For now, please include set_trim() in every program to make sure the trim values are set. Have you tried larger values yet? Every now and then we encounter a drone that needs pretty high trim values (above 50). If more than one drone is experiencing these problems, let us know so we can schedule a call with you.

Thank you. That worked! The lesson helped with the visual on indicating what was the power button. On the controller, there are grooves to indicate what is what, but it would have been nice if there were contrasts (dark symbols) against the yellow buttons.
@spinningkick The light on the charger will not turn on if the battery is already charged. Do not forget to check the other side of the USB as well. The light is only going to show on one side. If you are certain that it's fully charged, verify by pairing in Blockly and take a look at the battery percentage on the bottom left. Try a takeoff and land as well. If the battery percentage is still low even after you have been charging, please let us know!
