    I purchased the Breeze controller but can't seem to find a way to reverse the controls like you can in the app. Does anyone know if the reverse mode is available when using the controller...

    Mine just came today. I looked for that option as well, but does not appear to be available in FPV?

    If that's the case it infuriates me because the A, X, select, turbo and clear buttons don't appear to do anything so one of them could have been used for the reverse function. You would expect the controller to mirror the app functionality especially considering there are unused buttons. It seems as though the controller is unfinished. The other thing I find is that Yuneec documentation is poor, it's unbelievable how many people are experiencing problems connecting their controller to their phone via bluetooth because the manual doesn't seem to explain that with the controller off the power and Y buttons have to be pressed together to initiate bluetooth pairing mode, it's only the most important function of the controller and Yuneec don't tell you.

    At this price point vs. a DJI Mavic at almost $1k, the addition of the Controller is very nice. Yeah, they need to improve some things, but both you and I figured out the Controller Pairing Issue with the help of Forums like this.

    Yuneec will probably upgrade the firmware and apps in the future? I hope.

    I see, I didn't realise the price was based on it being a partially working package. You don't have to be Einstein to realise during the design process it's better to use buttons than to leave them with no function and the app incomplete. I'm no design engineer but I have been involved in fault finding on complex Electrical Systems for 40 years, to me the way to have approached the design of this controller is to start by listing all the app pilot mode functions in order of importance then design the app FPV mode using ALL controller buttons from the top of the function list down, it's not rocket science. Why should we have to work out the controller basics like bluetooth connection which is a basic function required for the controller to do what it's designed to do, it should be in the manual. It's like supplying the Breeze without the wifi password in the manual no good if your out of internet shot when you use it and or the controller for the first time.
