MIUI: Connecting to MJX Bugs B2W

I recently purchased the MJX Bugs B2W drone, and had a lot of difficulty connecting to the onboard 5GHz WIFI camera from the Bugs Go app. I finally figured out the solution, and it was totally unexpected, so I thought I'd share it here for anyone faced with the same issue.

I am using the Redmi Note 4 to connect, and that phone supported 5GHz WIFI, so I had no problem connecting to the drone hotspot. But when I launched the Bugs Go app, I keep getting the "Aircraft not connected" message. I tried a couple of stuff, including resetting the 5GHz channel used by the drone (by pressing on the "Camera" button on the remote controller for about 8 seconds, until you hear 3 beeps). Nothing worked.

Then I realized when I connect to the drone hotspot and run Bugs Go, I see this message:


It didn't occur to me initally to tap on the message, because I already knew the drone hotspot had no Internet acess. So out of desperation, I tapped on the message:


By selecting "Stay connected", Bugs Go was immediately able to connect to the drone and started streaming the live video feed from the camera.

Lesson learned!

Update: Line adapter for Ozito Blade Trimmer

Update (Dec 2021): If you access to a 3D printer, I would now recommend this solution , which makes it super easy to replace the trimmer line. I have been using it for a few months now with zero issue.

Line adapter for Ozito Blade Trimmer

This is an adapter for Ozito 18V battery trimmer (and possibly some Bosch trimmers as well) that uses a plastic blade for cutting. It lets you insert a 2.4mm trimmer line (about 8cm long) and use that for cutting. Simply cut a length of trimmer line and briefly heat up one end with a lighter so that a little bulb is formed. Then insert the trimmer line into the adapter and slot that into the trimmer as per normal. Make sure the trimmer line is not so long that it touches the safety guard. If that is the case, simply trim off any excess with a cutter or scissors. This part is best printed using PETG, which is a tougher and more flexible material. PLA is more rigid and breaks more easily. However, even with PETG, it will still break when it hits something really hard. Since this takes only 0.5m of material and 15 minutes to print, I will usually print a batch of nine at a time at very little cost. The blades that they sell do not break when it hits a hard object, but
