  • (1)The remote controller will power off automatically when battery voltage drops below 4V. Land and change batteries as soon as possible when the low voltage alert occurs to avoid loss of control during flight.

Antenna Orientation

The remote controller’s antenna should point skywards without obstructions for maximum communication range during flight.

Remote Controller Operation

The operations of remote controller are based on mode 2 stick configuration.

  • The ‘stick neutral’ positions and ‘stick released’ mean the control sticks of the remote controller are placed at the central position.
  • To ‘move the stick’ means that the stick of remote controller is pushed away from the central position.
  • Slide Lever is used for the pitch control of the H3-2D gimbal.

  • (1)For ‘Ready to Fly’ the aircraft will hover when all sticks are released.
  • (2)For ‘Ready to Fly (non-GPS)’ the aircraft will only keep the altitude when all sticks are released.

Linking the remote controller& built-in receiver

PHANTOM 2 has a built-in receiver, the link button and indicator located on the bottom of the aircraft as illustrated in the below Figure. The link between the remote controller and aircraft is already established for you so you can initially skip this procedure. If you ever replace the remote controller, re-establishing the link is required.

Linking procedures

  • 1. Power on the PHANTOM 2.
  • 2. Turn on the remote controller and place it 0.5m~1m away from the aircraft.
  • 3. Push the link button with a thin object and hold it until the Link indicator blinks red, then release it.
  • 4. When the Link indicator turns solid green, the link between the remote controller and the built-in receiver has been successfully established.
