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. 飞行总里程 Milelage 与起飞点的直线距离 Linear distance to the take-off 飞机当前方位角 Current azimuthal angle of the plane GPS 信号强度 GPS signal intensity 俯仰姿态角度 pitch attitude angle 横测姿态角度 主板（视频）电压 Main board (Video) voltage 动力电压 Motor voltage 动力电流 Motor current 航向 Course 与目标点的航向差 Course difference against the destination 地速 Ground velocity 高度 Altitude 空速 Air velocity 已消耗动力电量 Consumption of motor power 与目标点的地面投影距离 Ground projector distance to the destination 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. 东 east 南 south 西 west 北 north 航向 course 飞机位置 plane location 起飞点 take-off 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. Description of menu parameters setting Press UP and DOWN to enter main menu setting interface.

The operators need to turn the knob manually to shift to the next waypoint. MAXISCHG Advance distance for waypoint shift Setting range: 0-100 meters NOTE: The system is in default value at leaving factory. The clients need only to set the red bold characters for auto pilot. 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. 带增稳手动驾驶 auxiliary manual pilot mode 自动驾驶 auto pilot mode 手动驾驶 manual pilot mode 自动返航 auto return mode 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.
