Flight control settings

Button Description
Compass Calibration Initialize a Compass Calibration.
Beginner Mode Enable or disable Beginner Mode. This mode has a fixed maximum flight altitude (30 meters), distance (100 meters), and speed (horizontal: 6 meters/s, ascent: 3 meters/s, descent: 1 meters/s). These limitations help to keep your flight safe when you are learning how to fly.
Flight Speed

Set limits for the aircraft’s ascent, descent, and horizontal speed when Beginner Mode is disabled.

Altitude and Distance Limit Set a maximum altitude and a maximum distance for your flight when Beginner Mode is disabled to protect the aircraft from losing the signal or flying out of sight. When these limits are enabled, the aircraft cannot fly outside the preset boundaries under GPS mode. In non-GPS mode, the aircraft is only restricted to the preset altitude limit. The distance limit in non-GPS mode may vary depending on the regulations and laws in different areas and countries. In GPS mode, the maximum altitude is set to 120 meters and the maximum distance is set to 800 meters by default.
Go Home Altitude Set a safe altitude for your aircraft to Go Home automatically in case of an emergency.
When you set the Go Home altitude, the aircraft will adjust to the value you selected before returning to the home point. The default Go Home altitude is 30 meters.
