  4. Aligning machine. Select D7, “wide angle 2-lines” (Horz = 1 and 20), and align machine such that balls placement at opposite side is equal distance from the centreline. The machine is aligned after this process is done.  

Why is the machine WIFI get disconnected from phone?

Set the phone “Screen Off” to 5 minutes or more.  The usual default is 30 secs in most phones. This will improve the connectivity duration.

What are the default drills?

The drill types are indicated at the app display, bottom left corner.  In drill edit mode, you can swipe left-right on phone screen to move to next or previous drill. Default are: D1 Flat, D2 Topspin, D3 Backspin, D4 Backhand, D5 Forehand, D6 2-lines narrow, D7 2-lines wide, D8 Lob, D9 Random Height, D10 Random Horizontal, D11 Baseline n Net, D12 Full Random.

Why do the balls seem to lose distance at topspin drill even with maximum speed?

Ball spin is achieved by slowing down either one of the propelling wheels. Reduce the spin level to increase ball speed.  Placing the machine inside the court’s baseline gives flexibility in spins with speed. 

Do I need to Off the power switch at the panel to conserve battery?

Power consumption is minimal with free running wheels.  2019 or newer models have auto propeller wheels stop feature when machine is in pause state.

Why does the ball suddenly lose speed such that it cannot cross the net?

Pre-2022 model: Ball jam will cause the T or B reset buttons to pop out 6mm. OFF the Power switch and wait till the propel wheels come to a stop.  Remove any ball stuck in between the 2 propel wheels and others that may be inside the machine. Press the reset button and ON the Power switch.

2022 model:  OFF the Power switch and wait till the propel wheels come to a stop. Remove the balls inside the machine.  ON the Power switch.  ( The 2 reset buttons are not used ).

Why is the machine not able to turn wide angle at horz = 1 and 20 setting?

It is likely one of the bottom rubber feet has dropped off. Make sure the side wheels do not touch the court surface.
