Controlling the aircraft with the remote controller (manual flight)

There are two flight methods for this aircraft: manual flight, in which the aircraft is controlled with the remote controller, and automated flight, in which the aircraft automatically flies without user operation. This topic describes the operations for manual flight.

  1. Turn on the aircraft and place it on a flat surface.
  2. Tap [Start flight] on the “Airpeak Flight” App Home page.
    The flight screen will be displayed.
  3. Launch the aircraft.

    Manual takeoff

    1. Tilt the left and right control sticks on the remote controller either inward and downward, or outward and downward at the same time.

      The motors will start and the propellers start rotating.

    2. Operate the control sticks on the remote controller to make the aircraft ascend.

    Automated takeoff

    1. On the flight screen in the “Airpeak Flight” App, tap (Auto take off) and follow the instructions on the screen.

      The motors will start and the propellers will start rotating. Then, the aircraft will take off.

    The landing gear will rise when the aircraft ascends to a certain height above the take-off position.

  4. Control the aircraft manually with the remote controller.

    The left and right control sticks work as follows when [Stick operating mode] is set to [Mode 2] (default).

    Left stick

    • Tilt up/down: Ascend/descend.
    • Tilt left/right: Turn left/right.

    Right stick

    • Tilt up/down: Fly forward/backward.
    • Tilt left/right: Fly left/right.
  5. Land the aircraft.

    Manual landing

    1. Operate the control sticks on the remote controller to make the aircraft descend.

      The landing gear will lower when the aircraft descends to a certain height above the ground.

    2. Keep operating the control sticks until the aircraft lands and the motors stop.

      After the motors stop, release the control sticks to return them to the central position.

    Automated landing

    1. On the flight screen in the “Airpeak Flight” App, tap (Auto landing) and follow the instructions on the screen.

      The landing gear will lower when the aircraft descends to a certain height above the ground, and then the aircraft will land and motors will stop.

Note

  • Keep away from the spinning propellers and motors in use.
  • Raise or lower the landing gear manually if you have set [Auto control landing gear] to off.
