If the aircraft is pointed in any other direction, the SAFE Circle™ feature will not function as expected and may result in personal injury or damage to property. Once the aircraft’s motors are started, do not change your position. For information on additional flight modes, including “Follow Me,” see the online video at www.KnowChroma.com. Throttle control (RTF) Left transmitter stick 12 Flying and Landing Controlling the Camera 13 NOTICE: If you begin to lose control, release the control sticks and the model will self-level. • To maintain the current altitude, allow the left transmitter stick to return to center. Hold until the motors stop Pilot location NOTICE: If the Chroma™ quadcopter loses GPS signal while flying in either Smart or AP Mode, the LEDs will flash rapidly for 2 seconds and then once every second. The quadcopter will default to a stable flight mode with similar control response as AP Mode. Return Home will not function. Please familiarize yourself with the controls in AP Mode to ensure a safe return of the quadcopter in the event of GPS signal loss. 11 Placement at startup Away from the pilot Right transmitter stick • A green LED cycles around the motor pods counter-clockwise until GPS is acquired • Once GPS is acquired, the front LEDs are white and the rear are green • Intended for the beginner pilot • Maximum distance of 100 m from the pilot A After the CGO2+ camera powers on, the LED on the gimbal will glow red for approximately 40 seconds. When the LED changes to yellow, complete the following steps to bind the CGO2+ to the ST-10+: • Select Flight Settings from the main menu on the ST-10+. • Select the Bind option. • Under Camera, select the CGO2 network (CGO2_******). • Touch the Password line on the screen and enter the password “1234567890” on the touchscreen. • Select OK. • The ST-10+ will indicate a successful connection. Select OK. • Return to the Main Menu. The live video feed is now visible on the ST-10+ display. Double tap on the image to expand the video to fill the display. Double tap again to return to the main menu with live video. b f Perform the compass calibration • Slide the fully charged battery in until it locks. • Remove the battery by pressing the locking tab and sliding the battery to the rear of the quadcopter. • The props and motor pods have a letter code, either “A” or “B” molded in. Match the “A” props to the “A” motor pods and the “B” props to the “B” motor pods. • The “A” props thread on counter-clockwise. • The “B” props thread on clockwise. • Tighten the props only finger tight. DO NOT overtighten. c f A Pay close attention to the LEDs while flying. If at any time the LEDs indicate the flight battery voltage is low, as shown in the LED reference guide, land the quadcopter immediately and charge the flight battery. To land, you may either slowly lower the left transmitter stick to descend and land, stopping the motors as shown in step 10b: 14 NOTICE: Do not press the Motor Stop button while the aircraft is airborne. The motors could stop, causing the aircraft to crash. WARNING: Stopping the motors while the quadcopter is still in flight will cause the quadcopter to crash. Crash damage is not covered under warranty. After Your Flight Use the buttons on the top of the ST-10+ to control the camera functions.
