CHARGING THE LI-ION ST10+ BATTERY 2 You can charge the LiIon battery installed in the ST10+ from a 100-240V 18 3 AC outlet using the USB adapter/charger, or from a suitable USB power source (2.0 amps max), with the USB to micro USB cable. While the ST10+ 16 is powered off connect the cable to the USB adapter/charger, then plug it into the USB connector/charging port on the right side.

WARNING: NEVER attempt to fly TYPHOON via First-Person View (FPV). There’s a slight ‘lag’ in the CGO2+ streaming video downlink to the ST10+, and as a result the streaming video/FPV should only be used for aligning camera shots and not for flying! Attempting to fly via FPV can result in a crash that will cause damage to the product, property and/or cause serious injury. IMPORTANT NOTE: Streaming video from the CGO2+ to the ST10+ and to a separate phone/tablet (or another Yuneec transmitter/personal ground station) at the same time is NOT recommended as it will result in a very significant lag in the video downlink. 3

TAKING PHOTOS AND RECORDING VIDEO The ST10+ seamlessly integrates control of the CGO2+ so you can easily The slider located on the left side of the ST10+ allows you to set the take still photos and start/stop video recording using the corresponding pitch/tilt position of the CGO2+ from approximately straight ahead (when buttons located on top: the slider is in the uppermost position) to approximately straight down (when the slider is in the lowermost position). And you can easily set a TO TAKE A STILL PHOTO position in between by adjusting the slider accordingly. Press the button located near the top left corner of the ST10+. You’ll hear an audible ‘shutter’ sound from the ST10+ and the LED indicator on the front of the CGO2+ will change from glowing solid green to glowing solid blue. It will take approximately 5 seconds to capture the photo and before you can take another still photo. IMPORTANT NOTE: You cannot take still photos while recording video. You MUST stop recording video in order to take still photos. TO START/STOP RECORDING VIDEO QUICK TIP: There’s an adjustable counterbalance located on the rear of the CGO2+. This counterbalance has been adjusted at the factory to Press the button located near the top provide the best balance and performance overall so typically it should right corner of the ST10+.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You can choose to record video at 48, 50 (PAL) or 60 (NTSC) frames per second by tapping the corresponding button near the upper left-hand corner on the screen of the ST10+. And keep in mind that the delay in the live video stream will be lowest at 48 and 50 as compared to 60 frames per second. 4
