in different areas. Calibrate the compass at the first flight or fly area is far away from the previous area.
Make sure to keep away from ferromagnetic substance when calibration.
1. Quickly switch the control mode switch from Manual Mode to GPS Atti.
Mode for 6 to 10 times, The LED indicator will turn on constantly yellow.
2. Rotate your multi rotor around the horizontal axis until the LED changes to
constant green, and then go to the next step.
3. Hold your multi rotor vertically and rotate it around its vertical axis, keep
rotating until the LED turns off, meaning the calibration is finished.

z If the calibration was successful, calibration mode will exit automatically.
z If the LED keeps flashing quickly Red, the calibration has failed. Switch the control mode switch one
time to cancel the current calibration, and then re-start from step 1.
If you keep having calibration failure, it might suggest that there is very strong magnetic interference
around the GPS & Compass module, please avoid flying in this area.

Flight Test
1. If in GPS ATTI. Mode, place the aircraft in the open space without buildings or trees. Take off the
aircraft after 6 or more GPS satellites are found (
blinks once or no blinking). If in ATTI. Mode or
Manual Mode (it is not recommended for newcomer), you can skip this step.
2. Place the aircraft 3 meters away from you and others, especially children, to avoid accidentally injure.
3. Start-up
Push both sticks to the left bottom or right bottom, to start the motors.
Release the yaw, roll and pitch sticks and keep them at the neutral position avoiding the aircraft to tilt
to one side. At the same time push the throttle stick from the bottom quickly, because the motors will
stop if not to push the throttle stick from the bottom in time and you need to execute start-up
procedure again. When the aircraft is on the point of leaving the ground, continue to push the throttle
stick upwards to rapidly take off from the ground, pay attention not to push the stick excessively.
Pay attention to the aircraft movement at any time when flying, and use the sticks to adjust the
motion status. Keep the yaw, roll and pitch and throttle sticks at the neutral position to hover the
aircraft at the height you need.
4. Nose down the aircraft slowly. Push the sticks to the left bottom or right bottom to stop the motors after
landing. (Push the throttle stick under 10%, and after landing 3s the motors will stop automatically)
5. Please always power off the quad-rotor first , then switch off the transmitter after landing.
Please always switch on the transmitter first, then power on the quad-rotor before takeoff!
If in GPS ATTI. Mode, keep the aircraft flying in the open space without obstruction. Pay attention to
the GPS satellite status indicator LED. If the GPS signal is bad (red LED blink twice or three times),
switch to ATTI. Mode. You may use the GPA ATTI. Mode again after the GPS signal back to normal
If the multi rotor LED flashes quickly Red then this indicates battery voltage is low, please land ASAP.
Once the system enters the second-level low-voltage alarm, the aircraft will drop height automatically.
DO NOT flying in ferromagnetic substance area, to avoid strong magnetic interference with the GPS.
It is recommended to land the aircraft slowly, to prevent the aircraft from damage when landing.
If the TX indicates low-battery alarm, please land ASAP. Because the TX abnormal work may cause
the aircraft out of control or even crash.
After powering on and before the motors start, if the multi rotor LED double blinks yellow or green
without Tx stick movement, you should power cycle the multi rotor.
The multi rotor will automatically land (or return home if in GPS mode) if the fail-safe mode is active.
We recommend that you take off the multi rotor in ATTI. Mode. Manual mode is very sensitive.
If the LED lights Red, please hover the aircraft until it turns off, so as to have better flight performance.

Enhanced Fail-safe
z Enhanced Fail-safe will be triggered when the MC loses the control signal, there are following situations.
9 Signal lost between the transmitter and receiver, e.g. multi-rotor is out of the communication range, or
transmitter is down, and so on.
9 One or more connections of A, E, T, R, U channels between main controller and receiver loses. If this
happens before take-off, motors will not work if you push the throttle stick; if this happens during the
flight, LED yellow light will flash to warn in addition to the failed-safe method.
z The multi rotor will automatically land if the fail-safe mode is active, or return home if in GPS mode.
z Before takeoff, current position will be saved as home point by MC automatically when you push the
throttle stick first time after 6 or more GPS satellites are found (red LED blinks once or no blink) 8 seconds.
z Make sure to save the home location before takeoff and keep it in mind clearly for safe reasons.
z When switch to Manual Mode or Atti. Mode, MC will disengage enhanced failed-safe mode, you can
re-gain control of multi-rotor.
The following schematic shown is introduction for Go-Home and Landing.
The aircraft will not go home if the GPS signal is not good; or the distance between the Home Location
and multi-rotor is less than 25m and the altitude is lower than 20m relative to the Home Location.

Low-Voltage Alarm
Low-voltage alarm is to indicate that the battery cannot provide enough power for the aircraft, in order to warn
you to land the aircraft ASAP. There are both first level and second level protections. It is not for fun, you should
land your aircraft ASAP to prevent your aircraft from crash or other harmful consequences!!!
z All two level protections will only have LED warning in Manual Mode, no any automatic actions.
z In ATTI. and GPS Mode.
9 The first level protection have LED warning
9 The second level protection the aircraft will land automatically having LED warning. Meanwhile the center
point of throttle stick will move up slowly to 90% of endpoint, you should land ASAP to prevent your
aircraft from crash! When the center point is at 90% of endpoint, multi-rotor will still ascend slowly if you
continue to pull the throttle stick, and the control of Pitch, Roll and Yaw are the same as before.
