how do you adjust the focus lens on a world Tech elite Orion drone ?
my 2nd camera is out of focus for longer range the objects blur after 40 feet in the air taking a aerial video, the lens has no ring to turn yet it looks like inside the sides of the lens has a turning square around it should I try turning it ?

Really, drone cameras should not need focusing, they should be fixed at infinity, thus all should be sharp except within a few yards or even feet of the camera. Somebody in the factory failed to carry out final checks on that camera.
Probably best not to try mucking about with the lens, since you might cause the lens to fall apart completely, and you would never get it back together again in working condition. If you have just bought the camera, get it replaced. If not, then 'Qrk' has some good ideas.

I've seen cheapo cameras with fixed focus that didn't focus at infinity. We've added corrective optics to fix the near-sightedness of those cameras. Edmund Scientific and lots of e-bay vendors sell lens sets for experimenters.

Usually the lenses are focus free or auto focus, especially on drones of this price point. It's more likely that your drone's camera is in need of repairs. Read the owner's manual and see if it mentions anything about manual focus. If not, then there's nothing you can do and your drone needs to be repaired.
