    Steve (Moderator) and I worked on a few questions to help all pilots understand the Breeze operation and functions. Many mishaps occur because we don't understand what will happen when we start pushing buttons or flying the Breeze. Take this short Quiz and test your knowledge!!


    1) If your phone does not have dual band wifi, can you still fly the Breeze?

    a. What wifi band (frequency) is needed to fly the Breeze?

    2) At what height will the Breeze hover when it takes off? Can you adjust this height?

    3) How do you set your RTH (Return To Home) height, and what is the current setting?

    a. What will happen when you push the RTH button, and how do you cancel it?

    4) What determines how high the Breeze fly’s in Journey mode?

    5) In Orbit mode, what happens? At what distance will the Breeze orbit you?

    a. How do you stop Orbit mode?

    6) How do you tell if you have a GPS connection?

    a. About how many satellites will the phone see in the Breeze App?

    7) If you have no GPS signal, will the Breeze still fly?

    8) When flying indoors, how many GPS satellites do you need for safe flight? (The answer is ‘none’, why?)

    9) When you FIRST power on the Breeze Controller using an iPhone/iPad what button(s) do you need to push on the controller? With an Android phone?

    a. What indication do you get when the Controller connects to the phone?

    10) Where, in the Breeze App, does it show how far, and high, you can fly?

    a. What is the current setting?

    b. Why might you set it for less than the maximum?

    11) If you push the throttle stick all the way down, and hold it, will the Breeze land itself?

    12) Why should you start the landing procedure before reaching the low battery warning?

    13) When should your recalibrate your Breeze? (go through the calibration process?)

    If you answered these questions correctly you have a very good chance of not crashing - have fun!

    We debated having the answers at the end of the post and decided against it. Having people go to the manual or search for answers on the forum or on the web seemed a better idea. We may post the answers when we publish a new set of questions. Probably by mid May.

    Interesting. My iPhone and the Breeze app shows this. There is a number by the icon for GPS which tells me how many satellites I am locked on to.

    Great quiz....much information for one to go thru with the breeze. I see this as a Before Flight eval
    that insures a good base knowledge of your craft.
    What is asked can be found in the manuals and on line. Knowledge tends to keep one flying and not grounded...literally. I did go online and down loaded the breeze manual to my iphone used while flying.

    When you are in the Tasks on Breeze Cam, there is a help “?” in each Task Mode (Selfie, Journey, Orbit, Follow Me, Pilot, and Controller) that launches the first time you use that mode of flight. It guides you through the operation and safety points for each mode. If you haven’t used a mode in a while and are unsure of exactly how it operates, just tap the “?” and review the help for that mode. Many of the quiz answers are actually found there.

    Outdoor you use GPS. Indoor you do not. Please look into this a bit more.
