what is a fly away and what can cause it....im new to flying so had to ask
so what mode would i learn to fly in so i can learn to not depend on gpsA fly away is when your drone just takes off with a mind of it's own and fly's away from you uncontrollably. Nothing you do can bring her back! Usually caused by loss of GPS signal and operator not knowing how to fly with no GPS signal, which would allow you to just fly her back to you without reliance upon a GPS signal!
Funny you ask, my friend was flying his small quad the other day and it some how went into a tumble. As it tumbled he panicked and hit the return to home button,doing so confused the machine and instead of heading to its original take off point,it took off so where, never to be found. I use a recovery system called Marco-Polo R/C recovery system,it's has a 2 mile range and it has a nifty handheld locater. Fly always are usually a malfunction that results in the machine just flying off,also pilot error can result in a fly away.what is a fly away and what can cause it....im new to flying so had to ask
On the H, you would go into settings and turn on/off GPS. But I highly recommend to learn to master flying with GPS first! With no GPS the H will be "totally" dependent on you and your stick commands. It will not hover in place without you making it do so, It will be driven by breezes and wind unless you use stick commands to compensate for these factors. Not easy for beginners! A better way to learn to fly with no GPS is buy a cheap quad copter like a Hudson H107 and learn to fly it as it has no GPS and can take a beating. If you can fly that, you can fly non GPS, because they have none!so what mode would i learn to fly in so i can learn to not depend on gps
Smart mode is fine, just take off and land at least 26 feet away from you, as it has a zone around it and if you take off inside the 26 foot zone it can crash!well i went out and bought the typhoon g just wanna make sure i get some solid advice before i crash...lol so far 8 rotors in...i have to get used to it...guess ill just fly in smart mode for awhile thanks for the advice any you have will help being im new to the drone world
