ST10+ Accessories IMPORTANT NOTE: The maximum altitude is limited to 400 feet (122 meters) AGL (Above Ground Level) in both Smart and Angle (Pilot) Mode. You can install the included and optional-use Neck Strap to help hold and And although this limit can be adjusted using the USB interface/program- support the ST10+. You can also install the included and optional-use LCD mer and software we strongly recommend using the default limit at all Screen Sun Shade/Shield to help improve viewing in sun light. times. QUICK TIP: It may be helpful to apply suitable anti-glare screen protector material over the LCD screen to further improve viewing in sun light. Moving the left-hand stick to the left will turn (yaw) the nose of TYPHOON to the left about the vertical axis. And moving the stick to the right will turn Flight Controls (yaw) the nose of TYPHOON to the right. NOTE: The information in this and the following sections refers to the default ‘Mode 2’ control configuration of the ST10+. The left-hand stick on the ST10+ controls the throttle (climb/descend) and rudder (yaw left/right) channels.. When the left-hand stick (also known as the throttle stick) is in the middle position during flight TYPHOON will maintain the current altitude. As you move the stick upward TYPHOON will climb, and as you move the stick downward TYPHOON will descend. The farther away from the middle position you move the stick the faster TYPHOON will climb or descend. 12

PROPORTIONAL CONTROL RATE SLIDER Flight Controls - Smart Mode The Proportional Control Rate Slider located on the right side of the ST10+ allows you to set the overall climb/descend and directional control rates. When the Flight Mode Selection Switch is the top position TYPHOON will Use the turtle position for the lowest control rates (best for first-time pilots be in Smart Mode. and required when flying between 5000 feet and 8000 feet Above Mean Sea Level), and use the rabbit position for the highest control rates (best for Although we recommend learning to fly TYPHOON in Angle (Pilot) Mode as experienced pilots and can only be used when flying below 5000 feet soon as possible, Smart Mode is typically the best mode for first-time pilots AMSL). Or use a position in between if you prefer. to fly in and also features ‘Follow Me’ and ‘Watch Me’ functions. In Smart Mode TYPHOON will always move in the direction the right-hand control stick is pushed relative to the pilot and no matter which way the front/nose is pointed. So if you push the stick to the left TYPHOON will always move to the left, regardless of the direction the nose is pointing and even if it’s spinning. This mode can also be helpful for pilots that lose orientation while flying in Angle (Pilot) Mode. SELECTING A FLIGHT MODE SMART CIRCLE* TYPHOON is programmed with three (3) flight modes that can be selected via the Flight Mode Selection Switch located just above the right-hand control stick. *Ø 52 feet / 16 meters 13

FOLLOW ME FUNCTION The Follow Me function allows TYPHOON to follow the pilot, adjusting its location to the location of the ST10+. This function is enabled when ST10+ GPS positioning completes, and the TYPHOON is using shared GPS signal with ST10+. At this time, you will see on ST10+ screen, the number of connected satellites is 6 or more. TYPHOON's Main LED Status Indicator will blink white every three seconds. When in Follow Me function, the TYPHOON will follow the movement of ST10+ if there is no extra operation on the ST10+. The flight status is also controllable when you operate ST10+ and CGO2+. Important Note: In Follow Me function, the aircraft will maintain a constant altitude and cannot detect obstacles. Pilots who change their altitude by for example, moving to higher ground, during flight should be mindful of this. 14
