NEWS: Geniusidea Followme, another selfie drone

A new selfie drone enters into the arena: Like the dobby, you have a GPS module of course, but for indoors application optical flow stabilization. The camera is 13mpx 4K and the main MCU (Qualcomm 801) is strong enough to offer computer vision features such face recognition and of course follow me. Like the dobby, the lens must be manually ajusted. A path planner is also promised via the App (iOS & Android). Unfortunatly, the arms are not foldable like the dobby. At least 20min of flight time is promised thanks to 2500mAh LiPo

    My drone is not broadcasting a wifi signal.  It was working fine, I turned it off for about an hour, came back for another go.  Turned it on, the LED flashes blue really quick then stops, after 10 seconds the LED slowly flash red and it makes a beep noise, it then just continues to flash red.  I check for a wifi signal on my phone and it can’t pick one up, but my laptop can pick up the follow drone wifi.  What can I do to fix this? Is there a reset button on the drone?
