Set Up the Transmitter
With the power/charge switch on the transmitter turned on, press the trim buttons as necessary to center the trim indicators in the status display.
Skill mode indicator
Select the desired skill mode by pressing inward onto the pitch/roll control stick. If this is your first time flying an R/C helicopter, select the Beginner mode. This will allow the helicopter to react to your control inputs more gradually than Advanced mode, providing more time to think and react.
Be certain the transmitter antenna is in its vertical position and that the power switch on the transmitter has been turned on. Note: Unless performing the “Binding” procedure described on page 6, never allow the battery to be connected to the helicopter without the transmitter turned on. This means you should always turn on the transmitter first before inserting the battery and remove the battery before turning off the transmitter.
Also be certain the throttle control stick is fully down so the blades will not rotate when you connect the battery. Note: If you inadvertently connect the battery with the transmitter off, or with the transmitter on but the throttle stick not all the way down, the rotors should not turn until you turn on the transmitter or move the throttle stick all the way down.
