Trouble fly Bladestar????

Hey guys,

 I cant get my little guy to detect the ceiling for the death of me. I've tried my vaulted ceiling, regular room (flat ceiling) and have tried different types of lighting figuring my flourecent lighting may interfere with the IR. It just shoots up, hits the ceiling and spins and spins and finally hits the floor. Any tips?

I do not have a bladestar yet, but please check that the sensor is in it's right place at the top of the cone, make sure it has not been pushed in or tilted to one side so as to give it a false reading.

WOW! Very pleased with it now. I have vaulted ceilings and it still figures a way to detect it.

Conclusion: If your bladestars acting funny right out the box. Go exchange that joker cuz I'm seeing wayyy better results after the swap.
