Attention Before Flight

1.     This product uses 4G communication image transmission, please make sure the flight environment with strong 4G signal, wide and no electromagnetic interference.

2.     This product is suitable for people who have flight experience of hobby models and ages 14.

3.     Do not fly in bad weather, such as windy, snowy, foggy, etc..

4.     Select the open, no-tall-buildings area. Extensive steel-used buildings will affect the compass, blocking the GPS signal, causing worse on the aircraft positioning or even not able to locate.

5.     Please keep away from highly spinning parts(such as propellers and motors).

6.     Please keep away from obstacles, people, water and so on.

7.     Do not fly it in where there are high-voltage lines, communication base stations or radio towers, in order to avoid signal interference.

8.     Don’t fly in no-fly zone according to the local laws and regulations.

9.     Flight performance will be affected by the environment when flying above 4500m of sea levels, as the battery and gravity system will be influenced.

Check Battery Levels

Turn on the remote controller and intelligent flight Battery to check the battery level. Be sure the battery was fully charged at the first use.

1)               Long press the power button for 2~3 seconds to turn on the remote controller.

2)        Long press the power button for 3~5 seconds to turn on Intelligent Flight Battery. (Repeat above operation to turn off the intelligent flight battery and remote controller)

Charge the Batteries

1)         Connect the charger to the AC power (100 ~ 240v 50/60 Hz).

2)               Only use the charger provided to you for your Intelligent Flight Battery and remote controller. Please turn off the intelligent flight battery and remote controller before charging.

3)               The Level indicator of intelligent flight battery light off means charging finished completely;

The charging indicator of the remote controller turns green means remote controller charging finished completely

1)               Charger can charge 3 pcs aircraft batteries and the remote controller at the same time.

2)               3 pcs batteries maintain charge and discharge at the same time, to ensure the best performance.

3)               When charging, put it in a dry, ventilated place, keep away from the heat source and flammable and explosive.

Downward Vision System

Downward Vision system uses the camera to get the aircraft Position information, at the same time, can use the infrared sensor to fix the aircraft’s attitude, to ensure the aircraft precise positioning.

It is suitable for environments with an altitude of less than 3 meters without GPS signal or with weak GPS signals. Please make sure sufficient lighting of the environment and rich patterns of the ground surface, as the Downward Vision System identifies position variations based on the ground surface.
