After initialization before takeoff in smart mode my main LED status indicator is solid green for like 5 seconds and then a quick blue blink. I have GPS lock - does anyone know why I can’t get a solid green Indicator?
You have a solid green. The white (not blue) flash tells you GPS is good enough to use Follow Me mode.
If you are new to the Typhoon H, I would suggest you use Angle mode instead of Smart mode. There is a 26 foot (8 meter) diameter safe circle around the ST16 controller that can cause some unexpected movements of the aircraft.
This User Manual will be your friend. I keep it on my phone for reference in the field if needed.
I would surest you follow all of the suggestions by DoomMeister and another one remove the camera while you practice as fixing one after a crash is expensive. Also SMART MODE IS NOT SMART. Practice until you are confident and then practice more and get COMPETENT. Fly safe and enjoy , they are a fantastic machine . Johnno Hennessy.
