When the controller is OFF, press and hold the flight mode button, LAUNCH/LAND button, and POWER button for three seconds to toggle between mode 1 and mode 2. FAILSAFE GUIDE Mode 2 (default, most commonly used) LEFT thumb stick makes the drone go up/down, and rotate clockwise/counter-clockwise. RIGHT thumb stick makes the drone fly forward, backward, left, and right. X When the drone turns upside down, the motors will stop spinning. When the drone goes out of range of the controller, it will automatically land itself in its current position. If the controller comes back in to range before the drone lands, it is possible to cancel this automatic landing by pressing up on the throttle. When the drone's battery is at 10% or less, the LEDs on the drone will begin to blink rapidly, and a tone is played continuously on the controller until the controller and drone are turned off. When the drone's battery is depleted, the drone will automatically land itself in its current position. This automatic landing cannot be interrupted with the controller. Mode 1 (used in Australia and most Asian & European countries) LEFT thumb stick makes the drone fly forward/backward, and rotate clockwise/counter-clockwise. RIGHT thumb stick makes the drone go up/down, and fly left and right. If the drone detects that no input has been received by the controller for 15 seconds, the drone will automatically land itself in its current position..
