What is Failsafe mode and what are my panic buttons?

Failsafe mode helps your X‑Star automatically return home or land on site when necessary.

If radio communication is lost

  • Failsafe will be triggered after five seconds when the communication between your aircraft and remote controller is lost.
  • If GPS is available when Failsafe is activated, the aircraft will start the Go Home procedure automatically.
  • If GPS is unavailable (meaning less than six satellites are found) when Failsafe is activated, the aircraft will hover for 10 seconds. If six or more satellites are found during this period, the aircraft will start the Go Home procedure; otherwise, the aircraft will land onsite.

If the battery is low

    • When the battery level reaches the minimum level required for the aircraft to return to the home point, Failsafe will be activated, and your aircraft will automatically Go Home. You can regain control of the aircraft during the Go Home process
    • Any time your aircraft’s remaining battery level reaches 25% (the low battery warning level), Failsafe will be activated, and your aircraft will automatically Go Home.
NOTE: If the aircraft is within 50 m of the home point when your aircraft’s battery level reaches 25% (the low battery warning level), the aircraft will not perform the Go Home procedure.
