Aircraft Functions

Flight Modes
There are three flight modes in the Flight Simulator, P-mode, A-mode, and S mode. Use the Flight Mode toggle on the remote controller or the V key on the keyboard to switch between the modes.
P-mode (Positioning): The aircraft uses GNSS or Vision Positioning System for positioning. It allows the aircraft to hover precisely and brake automatically.
A-mode (Attitude): Neither the GNSS nor Vision Positioning System is used for positioning. The aircraft can only maintain attitude. It is significantly more difficult to control the aircraft in this mode.
S-mode (Sport): The aircraft uses GNSS or Vision Positioning System for positioning. It allows the aircraft to hover precisely and brake automatically. The aircraft flies at a high speed. Operate with caution.

Collision Feedback
The aircraft will crash in the simulation when it collides with objects such as buildings and trees. Two kinds of feedback will be given: the aircraft location will be reset or the mission fails. Users can continue the mission after the reset or restart after failing.

Return to Home (RTH)
There three types of RTH: Smart RTH, Low Battery RTH, and Failsafe RTH.

Smart RTH
Enter RTH: Press and hold the RTH button on the remote controller or press the O key on the keyboard and then confirm to enter RTH. The aircraft will automatically return to the takeoff point. Aircraft control
is unavailable during RTH.
Cancel RTH: Press the RTH button on the remote controller or the O key on the keyboard and then confirm to cancel RTH. The aircraft will hover in place, and the user will regain control.

Low Battery RTH
Enter RTH: Low Battery RTH is triggered when the battery is depleted to a point that may affect the safe return of the aircraft. The aircraft will automatically return to the takeoff point. Aircraft control is unavailable during RTH.
Cancel RTH: Press the RTH button on the remote controller or the O key on the keyboard and then confirm to cancel RTH. The aircraft will hover in place, and the user will regain control.
After cancelling Low Battery RTH, the aircraft will land automatically when the battery level drops to 10%.

Failsafe RTH
Enter RTH: Failsafe RTH will be automatically activated if the remote controller signal is lost. The aircraft will automatically return to the takeoff point.
Cancel RTH: During Failsafe RTH, if the lost remote controller signal is found, press the RTH button on the remote controller or the O key on the keyboard and then confirm to cancel RTH. The aircraft will hover in place, and the user will regain control.

Image Capture and Video Recording
In Drone FPV or Remote Control View, use the remote controller or keyboard to take photos and record videos. View the photos and videos in Gallery in the Main Screen or Pause View.

Action Remote Controller Commands Keyboard Commands
Take photograph Shutter button H
Start/stop recording video Video Recording button L

Flight Altitude Limit
Flight altitude limit restricts the aircraft altitude. The aircraft cannot ascend after reaching the maximum flight altitude (500 meters). All controls will function normally once the aircraft returns to altitudes below the limit.

Signal Interference

In some scenarios, there will be random interferences that may impact the imaging or the controls. This is designed to help users train their emergency response abilities. The image display might be blurred or go dark completely. There might also be a latency in the control latency or signal interruption.

Display

Minimap
In the Drone Follow View or Pilot FPV, the thumbnail of the location of the drone will show up as a Minimap at the lower right corner of the screen. The Minimap can be used in all the scenarios except in the Tutorials mode in the Skills Training module and in the Entertainment module.
