Jump to: navigation, search

The MG-1 provides Smart Operation Mode, Manual Operation Mode and Manual Plus Operation Mode. Switch to one of the three modes via the Operation Mode Switch on the remote controller. In Smart Operation Mode, the aircraft will travel along a pre-planned route and spray liquid payload. In Manual Operation Mode, users can start and stop spraying manually and also adjust the spray rate.In Manual Plus Operation Mode, the flying speed is restricted and the aircraft’s heading is locked.Except for the heading, users can control the movement of the aircraft.

Smart Operation Mode

In Smart Operation Mode, the aircraft will travel along a pre-planned route. Operation resumption,data protection, and altitude stabilization system are available in this mode. Use the Flying Speed Dial on the remote controller to adjust flying speed, spray rates will automatically adjust accordingly.Smart Operation Mode is recommended for large, rectangular spray areas.

Operation Route

The aircraft will travel along pre-designated square zig zag route after the turning points A and B have been recorded. The altitude difference between the aircraft and vegetation is maintained under optimal working conditions. The aircraft will spray liquid automatically while flying along the route and stop spraying liquid while hovering at the turning points. The length of the dotted lines, which are called Operation Gaps, can be adjusted in the MG-1 Assistant.

  • Maintain line of sight of the aircraft at all times.
  • Ensure that the Flight Mode Switch is toggled to the “P” position and the GPS signal is strong (GPS count ≥ 6).Otherwise, Smart Operation may be unreliable.

Tips.png *Always inspect operating environments before flying.

Ensure that Flight Mode Switch on the remote controller is toggled to the“P” position and a strong GPS signal is present. In addition, ensure that the Operation Mode Switch on the remote controller is toggled to the “M” position.

1. Record Points A and B in Order MG1OPERATION2.png

Fly the aircraft to the starting point, depicted as Point A (B), hover, and then press Button A (B) on the remote controller. The Point A (B) LED on the Spraying Status Panel will become solid green and the Aircraft Status Indicator will blink red (green) after the starting points have been recorded.

Important.png

  • Update Point B by flying the aircraft to a new position and record this position. Note that if a Point A has been updated, then Point B is also required to be updated accordingly.
  • It’s recommended to keep the direction of Point A to B parallel to one side of the rectangular spray area for optimal effect.

2. Select the Route

Press Back Left Button C1 or Back Right Button C2 on the remote controller to select the operating pattern. Press Back Left Button C1 for Route L and Back Left Button C2 for Route R. The Orientation LED on the Spraying Status Panel will blink to show that the selection has been made. The default route pattern is Route R, if no selection has been made.

3. Adjust the Aircraft Altitude

Adjust the aircraft altitude to the desired altitude by using the throttle stick before entering Smart Operation Mode, and the Altitude Stabilization System will start working automatically and maintain the spraying distance between the aircraft and the vegetation.

4. Using Smart Operation Mod

Ensure that the Flight Mode Switch on the remote controller is toggled to the “P” position and a strong GPS signal is present, then toggle the Operation Mode Switch to the “S” position to enable Smart Operation Mode. The aircraft will align with the line between Point A and Point B with its heading pointing toward Point B, and the left and right Orientation LEDs on the Spraying Status Panel will start blinking.

Tips.png Aircraft nose will always point from Point A to Point B regardless of the flight direction.Heading cannot be adjusted.

5. Starting the Operation

a. Press the Back Left Button C1 and Back Right Button C2 on the remote controller simultaneously to have the aircraft traverse from Point B to L1 (R1). The aircraft will then hover at Point L1 (R1) and wait for further commands. The left (right) Orientation LED on the Spraying Status Panel will light up when flying from Point B to L1 (R1). The four Orientation LEDs on the Spraying Status Panel will blink when hovering at Point L1 (R1).

b. Repeat ‘a’ and the aircraft will fly to the next turning point along Route L (R) and hover.

c. Enable Continuous Smart Operation Mode by pressing and holding the Back Left Button (C1) and Back Right Button (C2) for 2 to 4 seconds when the aircraft is hovering at any given turning point. The Continuous Smart Operation Mode LED on the Spraying Status Panel will light up and the Aircraft Status Indicator will turn solid purple for one second. The aircraft will then fly along Route L (R) continuously.

d. To exit Continuous Smart Operation Mode, press the Back Left Button (C1) and Back Right Button (C2) and hold for 2 to 4 seconds. The aircraft will fly to the next turning point and hover.

Important.png

  • You will only be able to press and hold the C1 and C2 buttons for steps 'a' to 'c' when the aircraft is hovering at a turning point.
  • If the GPS signal is weak (GPS count < 6) during operation, the aircraft will switch to Attitude Flight Mode automatically. Exit Smart Operation Mode and control the aircraft manually. When the MG-1 regains GPS signal, it will fly to the next turning point automatically.
  • If you press Button A or Button B during operation, data for Point A and B of the current route will be erased and the aircraft will hover in place.

Tips.png

  • The Operation Gap is set to 5m by default. Customize it from 3m to 10m in the MG-1 Assistant.
  • Use the control sticks to control the aircraft to avoid obstacles when it is in operation,even though the heading of the aircraft cannot be adjusted. The aircraft will resume the operation route automatically upon releasing the control sticks. Release the control sticks only after the aircraft is far away from any obstacles, or else the aircraft may still collide with obstacles when it resumes its operation route.
  • The aircraft sprays liquid automatically when flying, and does not spray when hovering.
  • The spray rate cannot be adjusted in Smart Operation Mode and is the same as the Manual Operation Mode rate. To adjust the spray rate, enter Manual Operation Mode and then return to Smart Operation Mode after setting a new rate.
  • Flying speed can be adjusted via the Flying Speed Dial on the remote controller in Smart Operation Mode. Refer to Controlling the Spraying System (p. 18) for details.

Operation Resumption

The operation resumption function allows you to temporarily pause an operation (e.g. to refill the spray, change the battery, etc.) and then resume operation. Toggle the Operation Mode Switch to exit Smart Operation Mode or initialize the Failsafe RTH or Smart RTH procedure, and the aircraft will record its location as a stopping point if the GPS signal is strong enough (GPS count≥ 6). Return to Smart Operation Mode and the aircraft will return to the recorded stopping point automatically and resume operations.

Important.png

  • Ensure that the GPS signal is strong (GPS count ≥ 6) when using the operation resumption function. Otherwise, the aircraft cannot record and return to the stopping point.
  • The stopping point will be updated as long as the Operation Mode Switch is toggled fromSmart Operation Mode to any other mode or RTH (Smart RTH or Failsafe RTH) is triggered

Follow the instructions below to use this function:

1. Toggle the Operation Mode Switch to exit Smart Operation Mode or initialize the Failsafe RTH or Smart RTH procedure. The current location of the aircraft will be recorded as the stopping point.

2. Fly the aircraft to a safe location before resuming the operation. If the radar module is enabled,adjust the spraying distance between the aircraft and the vegetation to be within the working range (2 – 3.5 m).

3. Ensure that the aircraft is in P-mode and the GPS signal is strong enough (GPS count ≥ 6).Toggle the Operation Mode Switch to enter Smart Operation Mode. The aircraft will return to the recorded stopping point automatically and resume the operation.

System Data Protection

The System Data Protection feature enables the aircraft to retain vital system data (e.g. the positions of Point A, Point B and the stopping point) for about 1 minute after the aircraft is powered off. Retaining vital system data allows the aircraft to resume operation after a short, temporary pause.

Follow the instructions below to use this feature:

1. Toggle the Operation Mode Switch to exit Smart Operation Mode. The current location of the aircraft will be marked as the stopping point.

2. Land the aircraft and stop the motors.

3. System Data Protection is triggered automatically once the aircraft is powered off. The Aircraft Status Indicator will glow solid green to show that System Data Protection is successfully triggered.

4. Replace the battery within the 1 minute window.

5. Restart the aircraft and toggle the Operation Mode Switch to enter Manual Operation Mode.

6. Ensure that the aircraft is in P-mode and the GPS signal is strong enough (GPS count ≥ 6). Start the motors and elevate the aircraft to a safe altitude. Adjust the spraying distance between the aircraft and the vegetation, so that the value falls with the range of 2 to 3.5 meters. Refer to the Altitude Stabilization System for more details.

7. Toggle the Operation Mode Switch to enter Smart Operation Mode. The aircraft will fly back to the previously recorded stopping point and resume its operation.

Important.png

The system data can only be retained for 1 minute. DO NOT power off the aircraft for more than 1 minute if you want to resume operation because the system data will be lost.

Manual Operation Mode

Toggle the Operation Mode Switch to enter Manual Operation Mode. You can control all the movements of the aircraft, spray liquid via the spray button on the remote controller, and adjust the spray rate via the dial on the remote controller. Refer to Controlling the Spraying System for more details on adjusting the spray rate. Manual Operation Mode is ideal for when the operating area is small.

Manual Plus Operation Mode

Toggle the Operation Mode Switch to enter Manual Plus Operation Mode. The maximum flying speed is 8 m/s and the aircraft’s heading is locked in Manual Plus Operation Mode. Press the Back Left Button (C1) or the Back Right Button (C2) on the remote controller to steer the aircraft to fly to the left or right. Spraying will not be interrupted while the aircraft is shifting to the left or right, and will only stop when the aircraft is hovering. Manual Plus Operation is ideal for irregularly shaped operating areas.

1. Elevate the aircraft to a desired altitude before entering Manual Plus Operation Mode. The Altitude Stabilization System starts working automatically by maintaining the spraying distance between the aircraft and the vegetation below. Refer to Altitude Stabilization System for details.

2. Ensure that the aircraft is in P-mode and ensure that GPS signal is strong (GPS count ≥ 6). Then toggle the Operation Mode Switch to the “M+” position to activate Manual Plus Operation Mode.

Tips.png

  • Note that the Operation Gap value is identical to the one that has been set in Smart Operation Mode.
  • The spray rate is fixed in Manual Plus Operation Mode. You can adjust the spray rate in Manual Operation Mode and then return to Smart Operation Mode after setting a new rate.
