Cautions:
1. Never touch the pressure sensor with anything, keep it clean and free from explosion to light.
2. Never pressurize the air speed indicator in case damage may occur.
3. Keep the circuit board away from electromagnetic field, such as video projector and remote controller
protector.
4. Never touch the circuit board with metal in case short circuit may occur.
5. Keep away from propeller movement range (at least 1.5 times of the propeller diameter to the
assistant) in case deviations may occur to the air speed indicator.
6. Please fit the infrared ray sensor to the plain as indicated in the following diagram.

Description of display
The main board indicator lamp flashes after power is connected. The following picture will appear when
you insert TF card (Mini SD card). If there is not TF card, then it will display NO SD CARD FOUND
and jump to startup picture automatically after 2 seconds.
About 5 seconds later, the system will enter pilot interface.

飞行时间 Flying time
At this time, GPS starts searching the satellite signal. The signal intensity symbol at the upper-right
corner refers to the number of the satellites detected. If the signal intensity symbol flashes, it means no
satellite signal detected or the satellite signal date received by GPS is not reliable and cannot be used as
location parameters. The searching lasts one to five minutes in case of adequate satellite signal and the
time changes in different environment.
Cautions
1. Please press "RESET" to Clear before taking off (The operation will Clear altitude, distance, time,
and power consumption).
2. The meaning of current azimuthal angle of the plane: The location where there plane occupies is
based on the take-off as the base point, and the rotates from due north from 0 to 360 degree. For
example, if the plane is at the southeast direction, the it will display 135.

3. Position indication in return travel: H in the screen refers to the take-off (A-G refer to destinations),
when the take-off point is in front of the plane, then it displays H, when the take-off point is at the back
of the plane, H will flash. If H is in the middle and does not flash, it means that the plane is travelling
back to the take-off point. If H is in the middle and flashes, it means that the plane is deviating from the
take-off point at 180 degree. Methods for return travel: H is displayed at the left side, turn left to travel
back. If H is displayed at the right side, turn right to travel back.

NOTE: The system is in default value at leaving factory. The clients need only to set the red bold

Operations
1. REV reversal setting: Cover the upper part (Z axis infrared ray) of the vertical infrared ray sensor (Z
axis infrared ray) with a hand after proper connections confirmed, shift the flying mode to PA mode.
Then cover the left side and front of the horizontal infrared ray sensor (XY axis infrared ray), observe
whether the aileron is calibrated to the right side and the elevator steering engine is properly adjusted. If
not, adjust AIL and ELE of REV options. If motor is used as the model plane throttle channel, the
reversal is available for default value. The clients only need to the remote controller throttle channel.
2. TRIM infrared ray sensor trim setting: After infrared ray sensor is fitted on the model plane, put the
plane higher than the head in the open space and observe the attitude angle parameters, if P parameters is
negative number, such as -3, you need to adjust P parameters to -3. Repeat the operations and observe P
parameters until it becomes 0. Observe R parameters with the methods as mentioned above to trim R
parameters. You need only conduct the operations once after the infrared ray sensor is properly fitted
unless the plane is changed or infrared ray attitude sensor is newly fitted.
3. If there is TF card (mini SD card) and power supply is connected, TF card will generate USERID.txt
file, in which 30-digit ID number of the main board will be stored. Please keep the number properly for
future maintenance and software updating.
Description of auto pilot
1. Please confirm that infrared ray sensor and airspeed pipe are properly installed and the infrared ray
attitude sensor shall not bear large angle deviations from the plane.
2. We recommend the clients to use model plane with good stability.
3. Flying mode shift shall be connected to any knob ratio channel on the remote controller. Under
different modes, the flying interface will display different information, PA (auxiliary manual pilot mode),
AUTOPILOT (auto pilot mode), RTH (Auto return mode). At auto pilot mode, turn the knob
AUTOPILOT to PA and quickly back to AUTOPILOT, the system will shift to the next waypoint.

4. We recommend to use remote controller with failure protection functions (F/S function). You may set
plain pilot mode shift channel failure protection as auto return pilot. In this case, the plane can
automatically return in case of failure.
5. In PA mode, the system can keep the course and altitude automatically, and the screen will display to
"LOCK" symbols as follows. If the operator control aileron (direction steer) or elevator steer, the course
or the altitude lock will be released. At this time, the system will automatically control the plane attitude
according to the control amount of the operators. For example, if the aileron is in 100% amount, the
plane will fly left (right) at 45 degree slope, if the elevator steer is in 100% amount, the plane will lift
(lower) at 20 degree angle. Until the control lever returns to the neutral, the system will lock and keep
the course and altitude at the moment.
Additional functions
When TF card is inserted into the system and the system detects satellite signal, press for seconds UP
button, and SD symbols will appear on the upper-right corner and flash. At this point, the card starts
storing the system data. Press Reset and the card will restart storing the system data. If you want to end
data storage, press UP button for 3 seconds and SD card symbol stops flashing, and you end data
storage.
Description of software updating
CYCLOPS FPV ASSISTANT may be updated with TF (mini SD) card. We will issue the update
programs on Internet. The clients may download the update program and copy it to the TF card.
1. Download Update.cyc
2. Copy Update.cyc to TF card and insert TF card into CYCLOPS FPV ASSISTANT main board
3. Press OK and start up the system, release the button when you see the following picture until the
update is finished.
When update progression is 100%, the screen will display as follows for system checking.
After the checking, the screen will display as follows:
At this point, you finishes update. After update, the system will automatically run the new program. If
the update fails, the screen will display as follows.
The following cases may result in update failure:
1. Update program is not available in TF card
2. Update program is corrupted
3. Update program does not match product ID.
