Test flights - Manual



DO NOT switch to AUTO mode.


1.  Perform a range test.  Some radios has a range test feature. 


If not do it manually.  Shorten the antenna and walk away.  Have an assistant to observe if the system goes into AUTO mode.  If it goes into AUTO mode then inspect the installation for any interference.

3. Set hover at mid-stick. 


4.  As an extra precaution spool up without the main blades.
