Precautions during flights

  • Always operate the aircraft within the visual line of sight of the operator or a visual observer, unless you have received a waiver from the FAA to conduct an operation beyond visual line of sight.

  • Keep away from the spinning propellers and motors in use.

  • Propellers in motion are dangerous and should never be touched with your hands, rods or sticks, or by any other means.

  • Do not touch the landing gear while the aircraft is in use. This may damage the aircraft or cause injury.

  • Be careful not to cover aircraft or remote controller antennas by mistake. This may affect wireless transmission.

  • Be careful not to cover the GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) antenna part of the aircraft by mistake. This may affect the attitude control of the aircraft.

  • When the aircraft descends to a certain altitude from the ground, the landing protection function is activated to check if the terrain below is suitable for landing. If no problem is detected, the landing gear will be automatically lowered. However, the stereo cameras may not work properly or the ground surface may not be recognized under certain circumstances, such as when there is not enough light or there is an obstacle with an unclear surface pattern. Operate the aircraft with great caution.

  • If the flight is unstable, land the aircraft immediately, and then check for any dirt on the sensors and calibrate them.

  • Since the video transmission signal may be delayed or lost due to interference, the wireless transmission settings of the “Airpeak Flight” App ([Aircraft] — [Sensors/Radio]) should be changed carefully with a full understanding of the changes.

  • After landing, first stop the motors, turn off the aircraft, and then turn off the remote controller. For safety, be sure to check that the motors have stopped rotating before turning off the aircraft and remote controller.

  • Do not use mobile device features that may interfere with the operation of the aircraft, such as answering calls or replying to emails.

  • To execute an emergency motor stop during a flight, tilt the left and right control sticks of the remote controller either inward and downward, or outward and downward at the same time. The aircraft will crash if the motors stop during a flight.

  • To turn off the power, do the following:

    • Aircraft: Press and hold the (Power) button for at least 2 seconds.
    • Remote controller: Press and hold the (Power) button for at least 5 seconds.
  • To force the power off, do the following:

    • Aircraft: Remove the battery packs.
    • Remote controller: Press and hold the (Power) button for at least 10 seconds. If this does not turn off the remote controller, simultaneously press and hold the C2 (Custom 2) button and the (Power) button for at least 10 seconds.

About the RTH (Return to Home) function

  • The RTH (Return to Home) function may be affected by weather, the surrounding environment, or nearby magnetic fields.

  • The aircraft cannot avoid obstacles if there is not enough surrounding light during RTH (Return to Home).

  • Set the altitude for obstacle avoidance before performing RTH (Return to Home).

  • RTH (Return to Home) does not work when there is an insufficient GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) signal (3 or fewer signal bars in the status bar of the “Airpeak Flight” App) or no signal is received from the GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System).

  • If the GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) signal cannot be received during RTH (Return to Home), RTH (Return to Home) will be aborted and the aircraft will switch to manual flight.

About the remaining battery level

  • If you are notified of low battery, land the aircraft immediately and safely.

  • When the battery level drops below a certain level, a warning is displayed and the aircraft automatically starts descending to perform a forced landing. In order to steer the aircraft to an appropriate landing point while maintaining altitude, operate the remote controller to perform ascent while the aircraft is descending.

  • If a battery level warning appears on the “Airpeak Flight” App screen, land the aircraft at the Home Point or a landing point immediately. If the battery packs run out of battery during flight, the aircraft may crash onto the ground, including private property, causing injury or damage to people or animals.

About the “Airpeak Flight” App

  • Fully charge your mobile device before starting the “Airpeak Flight” App.

  • When you operate the remote controller, be sure to start the “Airpeak Flight” App to assist in operating the aircraft.

  • The “Airpeak Flight” App may use cellular data communication and incur usage charges according to the data plan provided by your carrier. For cellular data communication usage charges, contact your carrier.

  • Read the safety tips, warning messages, and disclaimers displayed on the “Airpeak Flight” App screen carefully.
