Throttle stick is for aircraft up& down control. The aircraft will hold
the height automatically if the stick is centered. You should Push
the throttle stick to the neutral position to take-off the multi-rotor.
Note that the stick returns to the central position when released
for the transmitter V3.5. For the version below 3.5, the stick
cannot hold the central position when released.
Yaw stick is for aircraft rudder control.
Command stick controls the angular velocity of the aircraft, with
the maximum rudder angular velocity of 200°/s. Left stick
command gives counter clock-wise rotation of the aircraft, & vice
versa.
Roll stick is for aircraft left/right control and Pitch stick is for
front/back control. Command stick controls the angle of the
aircraft. Stick neutral position is for 0˚, its endpoint is 35˚. The roll
and pitch sticks return to the central position when released.

).
6. Put the power cable into the battery compartment.
7. Close the battery compartment cover.
8. The LED may blink Yellow 4 times quickly (
quickly (
). Start motor is disable during LED blinking Yellow 4 times
), as the system is warming up.
Notes
 Please contact your dealer if the “System start and self-check LED flashes” are not correct (Red LED appears in
the last four green flashes) in the Step5.
 After the system start and self-checking has finished, if the LED blinks Red, Yellow and Green continually, that
means the IMU data is abnormal. The PHANTOM will not work, please connect to the Assistant Software and
follow the tips to do operation. If it blinks red and yellow lights alternately (
), that means the
compass error is too big, it can be caused by the following three cases. Please connect to the Assistant Software,
select the “tools” tab and follow the tips of the “IMU Calibration” to do operation.
1. There are ferromagnetic substance around; first make sure that the compass has been calibrated correctly, you
can lift the aircraft up (about 1m from the ground), and stay away from the surrounding possible ferromagnetic
material object, if there is no red and yellow flashing after lifting it up about 1m from the ground, then it will not
affect the flight.
2. The compass module had been put near a magnet; in this situation please timely replace the compass for a new
one, otherwise it will lead to some abnormal action, or even loss of control.
3. The compass is not properly calibrated; in this situation please calibrate the compass correctly again, please see
the GPS compass calibration for details.

7. GPS & Compass Calibration
If the Compass Module is not used, you can skip this step.
The GPS module has a built-in magnetic field sensor for measuring the geomagnetic field, which is not the same in
different areas. The GPS module will not work unless the Compass Module has been connected. Make sure the
Compass Module connections are correct.
Please always keep the compass module away from the magnet. If this situation occurs please change the compass
module before flying. Otherwise it may damage the compass module and lead the aircraft to work abnormally or even
be out of control.
Calibrate the compass before the first flight or when flying in a different area. Make sure to keep away from
ferromagnetic substance and other electronic equipment when calibrating or flying. If you keep having calibration
failure, it might suggest that there is magnetic interference or other ferromagnetic substance, please avoid flying in this
area.
If you have calibration failure or the LED blinks red and yellow lights alternately (
), please connect to
the Assistant Software, select the “Tools” tab and follow the tips of the “IMU Calibration” to do operation.
1. Quickly switch the control mode switch from ATTI. Mode to GPS ATTI.
Mode and back to ATTI. Mode for 6 to 10 times, The LED indicator will turn
to constantly yellow.
GPS ATTI. Mode
2. Rotate your aircraft around the horizontal axis (about 360o) until the LED
changes to constant green, and then go to the next step.
3. Hold your aircraft vertically and rotate it (its nose is downward) around the
vertical axis (about 360o) until the LED turns off, meaning the calibration is
finished.
4. If the calibration was successful, calibration mode will exit automatically. If the
calibration has failed, the LED keeps flashing quickly Red. Switch the control
mode switch one time to cancel the calibration, and then re-start from step 1.

Flight Test
1. If in GPS ATTI. Mode, place the aircraft in an open space without buildings or trees. Take off the aircraft
after 6 or more GPS satellites are found (Red LED blinks once or no blinking). If in ATTI. Mode, you can skip
this step.
2. Place the aircraft 3 meters away from you and others, to avoid accidental injury.
3. Start-up

Switch on the transmitter first, then power on multi-rotor! Keep the aircraft stationary until the system
start and self-check has finished.

Please wait for the system to warm up gradually with the LED blinks Yellow 4 times quickly (
). You
should not start the motors until the blinking disappears.

Keep the aircraft stationary, and execute the CSC to start the motors.

Release the yaw, roll and pitch sticks and keep them at the neutral position, at the same time raise the
throttle stick from the bottom. The motors will stop if you do not push the throttle stick from the bottom
within 3 sec and you will need to re-start the motors.

Keep raising the throttle stick until all the rotors are working, push the throttle stick to the mid position
and then take-off your multi-rotor gently, pay attention not to push the stick excessively.

Pay attention to the aircraft movement at any time, and use the sticks to adjust the aircraft's position.
Keep the yaw, roll, pitch and throttle sticks at the mid position to hover the aircraft at desired height.
4. Lower the aircraft slowly until touch down is achieved. The motors will stop automatically after 3 seconds, or
you can repeat the start-up stick command to stop the motors sooner.
5. Please always power off the aircraft first, and then switch off the transmitter after landing.
FLYING NOTES!
!
!

At the first motors start, the system will check the sensors Bias and you are asked to keep the aircraft
stationary (no need of horizontal level). If you cannot start the motors and the LED blinks Green 6 times
quickly (
), it means that the sensor error is too big. Please connect the assistant software, enter
the "Tools" - > IMU calibration, carry out basic calibration.
Note: after the first successful motors start, this checking will be disabled and it is no need any more to
keep the aircraft stationary during starting motors.

If in GPS ATTI. Mode, keep the aircraft flying in the open space without obstruction. Pay attention to the
GPS satellite status indicator LED. When GPS signal has been lost for 3s (red LED blink twice or three
times), system enters ATTI. Mode automatically.

If the battery voltage is too low for flying, the aircraft enters the first level protection with LED flashing
quickly Red, please land ASAP. Once the aircraft enters the second level protection, the aircraft will drop
height automatically.

If you want to put the PHANTOM in a car, please keep it away from the speaker, since the compass module
may be magnetized.

DO NOT fly near to ferromagnetic substances, 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 Transmitter indicates low-battery alert, please land ASAP. In this condition the Transmitter may cause
the aircraft to go out of control or even crash.

Home-point: Every time you power on, after first motors start, and if 6 or more GPS satellites are found (Red light blinks
once or no blinking) for 10 seconds, the current position of multi-rotor will be saved as home-point by MC automatically.
1. Please make sure to record the home-point during flight, and clearly know where it is.
Note
2. During go-home the nose direction of the aircraft is facing toward the home-point, and the aircraft is
flying directly from the current position to the home-point.
The flowchart of failsafe and how to regain control(the following content is for the firmware v3.12)
This section will demonstrate the working logic of failsafe and how to regain control.
The following description is effective only when:
1. The aircraft is in flight.
2. The GPS works normally and signal is GOOD (≥6 satellite, the LED blinks a single red light or
no red light).
(1) The aircraft
flies far away,
transmitter is on
but the signal is
weak.
The aircraft behavior after
failsafe
How to regain control
Precautions
Attitude Mode: (1) the aircraft will level its attitude immediately (2) 3 secs
later, failsafe is triggered and aircraft will start to go home. (3) If signal is
regained during (1) or (2), it will resume normal flight immediately.
Attitude Mode: In Attitude Mode as soon
as you get signal you can regain control.
GPS Mode: (1) the aircraft will slow down and hover. (2) if the signal is
restored within 3 seconds (transmitter and receiver connected), the
system will immediately return to normal operation; does not enter
failsafe. (3) if not reconnected within 3sec, the system will enter failsafe,
then even if the signal is restored, the system will not exit failsafe.
GPS Mode: switch the transmitter mode
switch S1 to the middle position (ATTI.
Mode), if the receiver is connected, then
you will regain control.
(2) One position of switch S1 is set
as “Failsafe” in the Assistant
software, and you toggle the S1 to
“Failsafe” position during flight.
(3)Turn off the
transmitter (we
assume you want
to trigger failsafe)
What triggered failsafe
The aircraft will slow down and hover. Then the system
will enter failsafe mode after 3 seconds.
In this case, the behavior of the aircraft is the same as in the above
condition.
If you want the aircraft to Return Home, please do not turn the
transmitter back on within 3 seconds*, otherwise the aircraft will exit
failsafe mode immediately.
We strongly recommend you DO NOT try “Turn off the transmitter”, because
there are three types of risk:
(1) You must be pretty clear whether the Home-point is OK for landing or not. (You
have to understand the definition of Home-point well and the working process of
failsafe)
(2) If there are tall buildings around, the aircraft may be obstructed on the way.
(3) When GPS signal is bad or GPS is not working, failsafe will not work.
Note: if you start the motors, but do not push the throttle to take-off the aircraft, in
this case it is very dangerous to turn off the transmitter, because the aircraft will take
off automatically, so do not try this.
* If signal lost for more than 3 seconds failsafe will be triggered, if signal regained
within 3 seconds it will exit failsafe immediately.
©2012-2013 DJI Innovations. All Rights Reserved.
Switch the transmitter mode switch S1 to
the middle position (ATTI. Mode), then
you will regain control.
If you choose to turn off the transmitter,
you must be pretty sure that you know
how to regain control. Here we offer a
method, please read carefully.
When you turn off the transmitter, use the following
method to regain control:
(1) Switch the transmitter S1 switch to GPS. position.
(2) and then put the throttle stick to lowest position,
you can now turn the transmitter back on (greater than
5secs after switching off, important), then put throttle
stick to the center position immediately. If you hear the
transmitter alarm, make sure the throttle stick is at the
bottom position before moving to the center position.
(3) then you can switch the transmitter S1 switch to the
middle position (ATTI. Mode) to regain control.

Low-Voltage Alert
Low-Voltage Alert 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 crashing or other harmful consequences!!!
In ATTI. Mode & GPS ATTI. Mode.
 The first level protection has LED warning.
 During second level protection the aircraft will land automatically with 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 crashing! When the center point is at 90% of endpoint, aircraft 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.
(1)
Configure the FailSafe function in the assistant software -> “Advanced” -> “F/S” and read the
instruction thoroughly and carefully.
(2)
Configure the Low-Voltage Alert function in the assistant software -> “Advanced” -> “Voltage” and
read the instruction thoroughly and carefully.
