NOTICE AND WARNINGS Breeze may drift or fail to position when it flies indoors because the performance of the Indoor Positioning System can be affected by light intensity and ground texture. You should not operate Breeze in the following situations: 1. Flying over particularly sparse surfaces or surfaces without clear patterns/textures; 2. Flying over highly reflective surfaces or surfaces with reflections; 3. Flying over water or waterlogged surfaces; 4. Flying over moving surfaces or objects (such as above large crowds or strong wind blowing over grass or shrubs); 5. Flying in an area where the lighting changes frequently or drastically; 6. Flying over extremely dark or bright surfaces; 7. Flying over surfaces with identical repeating patterns or textures (e.g. tiles with the same design; carpet with the repeating patterns); 8. Flying rapidly at an altitude of less than 0.3 meters off ground, the Indoor Positioning System may fail to help Breeze recover to hovering; 9. Install the propeller protectors when you operate Breeze indoors; 10. Disable GPS and use Pilot mode with Indoor Positioning System when you fly Breeze in an outdoor area with poor quality GPS signal like in-between two tall buildings for better results; 11. Replace the altered/damaged propellers in time; 12. Always keep the glasses clean for best performance. Clean the glasses with soft cloth; 13. Use the emergency button with great caution. Switching off the motors mid-flight may result in an uncontrolled descent and might possibly lead to damage to your Breeze and its surroundings.
