Remote Controller and Flight Operations

Motor Star and Takeoff

Start the motors before commanding the aircraft to take off.


 NOTE

The aircraft will not take off if the battery level is 15% or lower.


Start the motors by holding both Command Sticks for two seconds shown below:

With the motors spinning, choose one of the following methods to takeoff:

If you command the aircraft to take off using the Take-off/Landing Button (), the aircraft will ascend automatically to a height of approximately 1.5 meters.


 WARNING

Make sure the motors have cooled down completely before touching.


Command Stick Controls


 TIPS

For beginners, it is recommended to move the Command Sticks using small and slow movements to keep the aircraft flying in a controllable manner and speed.


Left Command Stick

Ascend/Descend

Command the aircraft to ascend by pushing the stick upward, and descend by pushing it downward.

Rotate Left/Rotate Right

Command the heading of the aircraft to rotate left or right by pushing the stick left or right.

Right Command Stick

Forward/Backward

Command the aircraft to move forward or backward by pushing the stick upward or downward.

Move Left/Move Right

Command the aircraft to move left or right by pushing the stick left or right.

Landing and Motor Shut-down

The aircraft can be landed manually, automatically, or passively.


 IMPORTANT

The aircraft must be landed gently on a flat and level surface to avoid damage.


Manual Landing

You can land the aircraft manually whenever and wherever you want using the Command Sticks on the remote controller.

Land the aircraft manually

1. Find a desired position for landing the aircraft.

2. Release the Command Sticks when the aircraft reaches the target position to let it hover.

3. Push the Left Command Stick downwards slowly to land the aircraft.

Shut down the motors

When the aircraft reaches the ground, choose one of the following methods to shut down the motors:


 WARNING

The toe-in action will always shut down the motors even if the aircraft is in midair. Pay extra cautious and use this feature only in an emergency.


Automatic Landing

You can use the Take-off/Landing Button () on the remote controller to land the aircraft automatically from its current hover position.

1. Find a desired position for landing the aircraft.

2. Release the Command Sticks when the aircraft reaches the target position to let it hover.

3. Press and hold the Take-off/Landing Button () for 2 seconds until you hear a beep.

4. The aircraft will descend, land and shut off its motors automatically. During landing descent, you are able to adjust the aircraft position using the Right Command Stick.


 TIPS

During the automatic descent process, you can regain control by pressing the Pause Button () on the remote controller.



 NOTE

•Automatic landing is also available in ATTI Mode but you should control the attitude of the aircraft manually as the aircraft may drift.

• It is recommended that you land the aircraft immediately when Low Battery Warning (25%) is shown, i.e., the rear LEDs on the aircraft illuminate flashing red light, and the Power Button () on the remote controller lights up in solid yellow light.


Passive Landing

When Failsafe is triggered by any of the following conditions, the aircraft will be forced to land onsite automatically.

The Low Battery Warning is activated in non-GPS environment.

The Critically Low Battery Warning is activated.
