The throttle lever of the remote control is the power lever that controls the propeller speed; it can control the rising and descending of the UAV. The throttle lever should be pushed gently, and fast change should be avoided. The right joystick of the remote control is the direction lever; the UAV goes leftwards, rightwards, forwards and backwards respectively when the right joystick of the remote control is pushed leftwards, rightwards, forwards and backwards. During manual fly, the forward motion direction of the UAV can be corrected by combining the right joystick while operating the left joystick. When the UAV is in the air, any unpredictable airflow change will cause drifting and autorotation of the aircraft, which breaks the original balance. In such case, the UAV will inevitably rotate and drift. Therefore, comprehensive control measures should be taken.

Map Backup The ground station system adopts the data platforms of Google Earth and Google Satellite. During map browsing, the system will automatically save the data of browsed maps to the system so that you can view the browsed maps offline. However, the map storage capacity of Google Earth is limited (the maximum capacity of Google Earth is 2G and that of Google Maps is 1G). When the capacity of browsed map data exceeds this limit, the old map data will be lost. In addition, data loss may be caused by misoperation, which will result in the failure of access to Google Earth data platform after the ground station system is opened. To avoid loss of map data, data backup software is provided in the Ubuntu operating system. This software provides the following three functions: 1 Save map data; during use of the ground station, the user can save the map data according to area partition and date. Note: The data backup file should not exceed the map capacity limit (Google Earth: 2G; Google Maps: 1G). 2 Restore map data; in case maps cannot be loaded due to data loss during use, if access to Internet is also not available, the user can enter this software to restore map data. 3 Delete: Delete undesired backup data. Important: Before use of map backup, first open the ground station GS software in the Windows system, and make sure that maps of Google Satellite and Google Earth have been downloaded and can be used. The backup operation steps are as follows: 1 Start up and select to enter the Ubuntu system (see the following figure):

Troubleshooting Before test flight, please read the “Operation Instruction” first. If normal take-off fails, please perform troubleshooting according to the table below. If the problem still exists, please contact us immediately. To avoid unnecessary loss, please do not operate blindly! Symptom

Solution

Self-checking of the UAV fails after it is powered up (the buzzer beeps all the time)

(1) Check if the removable arms are properly installed

Speeds of the four motors are obviously inconsistent with each other after startup (some run fast, while some run slowly)

(1) Make sure the UAV is placed on a flat ground before self-checking (2) Calibrate the UAV

The UAV cannot be started after successful self-checking

Check the manual/auto switches of the remote control and the ground station to make sure that they are in the manual state

The state of navigation lights is abnormal; the normal state is green in the front and red in the rear

Confirm whether the frame arms are properly installed (frame arm A1 shall correspond to body A1, and so on and so forth)

The remote control and the ground station shows abnormality of flight attitude and compass (e.g., 360° rotation)

Calibrate the compass, accelerometer and gyroscope according to the instruction manual

The UAV fails to execute auto take-off and one-key auto fly

Confirm whether the manual/auto switch of the remote control or ground station is in auto state

The UAV cannot be controlled manually when it goes home or lands upon low battery

Make sure that the manual/auto switch is switched 2-4 times when the throttle joystick is at the middle position.

The UAV inclines or rotates during one-key auto fly

Power off the UAV and then power it on again

Normal take-off fails when the throttle lever is pushed forward after the UAV is started

(1) Check the four propellers of the UAV to see if they are installed properly as required in the Instruction Manual (2) Check the power battery of the UAV to make sure the battery level is high enough.

Protection Mechanism 1. During flying in the manual mode, when it is beyond the operating range, the UAV will enter the protection mode, and automatically fly back to the take-off position and land. 2. During flying in the manual/auto mode, when the remote control or the ground station is powered off, the UAV will enter the protection mode, and automatically fly back to the take-off position and land. 3. In case of Level 2 alarm for low battery, the UAV will enter the protection mode; at this moment, the UAV will vertically descend to the ground (in case of an emergency, in the auto fly mode, you can switch to the manual mode to control landing manually; in the manual fly mode, switch to the auto mode and then to the manual mode to realize manual control of landing).
