1. Before You Begin 1.1 Read Before The First Flight Before operating AirDog please read the following documents thoroughly, follow all instructions and retain it for future reference: A. AirDog User Manual. Look for the latest version on airdog.com/downloads B. AirDog Safety Guidelines, Disclaimer And Warranty 1.2 General Overview First of all, thanks for joining in AirDog’s vision and being an early adopter of auto-follow drone technology, developed by a small team of passionate and adventurous engineers and entrepreneurs. The World’s First Auto-follow Drone for Action Sports is in your hands and we hope it will empower you to go out and create new stories around your actions. Because of people like you we were able to innovate and develop a new technology never before seen. After our success on Kickstarter, “auto-follow” or “follow me” have become standard features in many drones and we are proud to have made such impact in the industry. For AirDog, following is not a feature but its core essence. It will follow and film you in many different ways, because every sport is different so we’ve custom engineered auto-follow flight modes for various action sports. Be careful and always pay close attention to the selected sport flight mode to ensure the sport flight mode matches your sport. AirDog is future proof and will become even more capable and intelligent over time as we continue to improve the software. AirDog has many built-in preflight and in-flight safety checks to avoid crashing. The main rule you have to follow is to operate AirDog ONLY IN WIDE OPEN AREAS where there is no risk of colliding into people and obstacles such as trees, steep mountains, buildings and construction. This is especially important until you gain experience and a better understanding of how different flight modes and AirDog operates. 5 Chapter 1 Before You Begin

To achieve AirDog’s performance we fuse data from many sensors such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, magnetometers, GPS and barometers both in AirDog and AirLeash. Please be gentle while operating, transporting and storing all equipment. Avoid dropping, hard shocks, moisture, and strong magnets. This is the first product of its kind, so your feedback, observations, opinions and suggestions are highly appreciated. Please use the Support or Forum section on our website to get in touch with us and other AirDog users. To have the best user experience please read this “User Manual” in its entirety before you go out and fly. And remember that if you need assistance we are always reachable. Have fun! 1.3 Safety Guidelines For Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) Recreational Users What are the safety guidelines for sUAS recreational users? • Follow community-based safety guidelines, as developed by organizations such as the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). • Fly no higher than 400 feet (120 meters) and remain below any surrounding obstacles when possible. • Keep your sUAS in eyesight at all times, and use an observer to assist if needed. • Remain well clear of and do not interfere with manned aircraft operations, and you must see and avoid other aircraft and obstacles at all times. • Do not intentionally fly over unprotected persons or moving vehicles, and remain at least 25 feet (7 meters) away from individuals and vulnerable property. • Contact the airport or control tower before flying within five miles (8 km) of an airport. • Fly no closer than two nautical (4 km) miles from a heliport with a published instrument flight procedure. • Do not fly in adverse weather conditions such as in high winds or reduced visibility. • Do not fly under the influence of alcohol or drugs. • Ensure the operating environment is safe and that the operator is competent and proficient in the operation of the sUAS. Before You Begin Chapter 1 6

1. Before You Begin • Do not fly near or over sensitive infrastructure or property such as power stations, water treatment facilities, correctional facilities, heavily traveled roadways, government facilities, etc. • Check and follow all local laws and ordinances before flying over private property. • Do not conduct surveillance or photograph persons in areas where there is an expectation of privacy without the individual’s permission (see AMA’s privacy policy). Users of commercial and recreational UAS should be aware that in remote, rural and agricultural areas, manned aircraft, including fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, may be operating very close to ground level. Pilots conducting agricultural, firefighting, law enforcement, emergency medical, wildlife survey operations and a variety of other services all legally and routinely work in low-level airspace. Operators controlling UAS in these areas should maintain situational awareness, give way to, and remain a safe distance from these low- level, manned airplanes and helicopters. Source: knowbeforeyoufly.org AirDog supports the Know Before You Fly education campaign and is committed to providing consumers and prospective business operators of unmanned aircraft systems the tools to know how to fly safely and responsibly before taking to the skies. 1.4 Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Registration If you own a drone, you must register it with the Federal Aviation Administration’s Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) registry. A federal law effective December 21, 2015 requires unmanned aircraft registration, and you are subject to civil and criminal penalties if you do not register.

General Overview Chapter 4 26

4. General Overview ! • Before customizing the settings of a sport always select a sport which corresponds to the sport that you are effectively performing. • Do not select a sport or customize the settings of a sport which does not correspond to the sport you are to carry out. • In the Custom Sport icon, always verify that you don’t select Land On SPOT as a landing mode and Follow terrain if you are going to practice a sport on the water. 4.6.1 Sport Mode Descriptions MTB (Mountainbike) Want to capture your mountain bike run? Just take AirDog out of your backpack unfold it, put on the propellers and take it up in the air. Set the angle, push Play button and go! In the FIXED follow mode AirDog will maintain the angle that you have set, for example South from you, and descend and ascend depending on your track. Follow mode: FIXED (default), ADAPTIVE Altitude: 10 meters / 33 feet Follow distance: 13 meters / 43 feet Follow terrain: ON Landing mode: SPOT Backcountry Head up to that beautiful spot you scoped out, unpack AirDog, send it up and push Play button. Set the position in which you want AirDog to follow and start to descend. Remember to make necessary adjustments on AirLeash if there are trees in your path. Follow mode: ADAPTIVE (default), FIXED Altitude: 8 meters / 25 feet Follow distance: 12 meters / 40 feet Follow terrain: ON Landing mode: SPOT 27 Chapter 4 General Overview

Windsurf If the wind is not stronger than 28 knots (14 meters per second) AirDog will help you capture your windsurfing action. Just find a safe takeoff/landing (HOME) zone on the beach, initiate takeoff, grab your gear and ride. Follow mode: FIXED (default) Altitude: 13 meters / 43 feet Follow distance: 18 meters / 60 feet Follow terrain: OFF Landing mode: HOME Wake Line If you are riding in straight line cable parks AirDog will stay safe and away from the cables. So all you need to do is to set two endpoints in the map of desired flight path (typically parallel to the cable) using the AirDog mobile app. In a few seconds you will be ready to shred your favorite slides and kickers with AirDog following on the side, keeping itself on the marked line and out of the water and away from the cable lines. Follow mode: LINE (default) Altitude: 8 meters / 26 feet Follow distance: (not used) Follow terrain: OFF Landing mode: HOME Skatepark This mode is perfect for skateparks and areas with obstacles like trees or lightning poles. AirDog will follow you with the camera, but will stay hovering in a fixed position. You will be able to reposition AirDog via “Joystick mode”. Follow mode: HOVER Altitude: 7 meters / 23 feet Follow distance: (not used) Follow terrain: OFF Landing mode: HOME General Overview Chapter 4 28

4. General Overview Surf When the surf’s up, just unfold AirDog, set a timer (the amount of time you need to get to the break), set the distance to the break, point AirDog (with the camera) in the direction you’ll paddle out to, and leave it in a safe takeoff/landing (HOME) spot, grab your board, paddle in. After the timer runs out AirDog will take off and fly to your position, wait until you catch the wave and film you from the front. With the press of a button or when the battery runs low AirDog automatically flies back to the HOME location. Follow mode: ADAPTIVE (default), FIXED Altitude: 8 meters / 25 feet Follow distance: 13 meters / 42 feet Follow terrain: OFF Landing mode: HOME Custom sport For advanced users! If you feel comfortable with the preset sports and the customization of their respective settings you can explore new angles and improve your video footage with Custom mode. It enables you to customize each setting and get more creative with AirDog. Follow mode: FIXED, LINE, ADAPTIVE (default), CIRCLE AROUND Altitude: 10 meters / 33 feet Follow distance: 10 meters / 33 feet Follow terrain: ON or OFF Landing mode: HOME (default), SPOT ! The AirDog limited warranty is void if: • The drone sustains water damage as a result of improper use of the Custom sport mode. • AirDog is submerged in water while Follow Terrain set to ‘YES’ and/or the Landing Mode set to SPOT. 29 Chapter 4 General Overview

4.6.2 Follow Modes Follow modes enable AirDog to follow you while maintaining the position and altitude that you have set, allowing AirDog to track you with the camera as you move. FIXED � Fixed follow In this mode AirDog stays at a fixed distance, altitude and angle from you regardless of your directional movement. In simpler terms, it will always stay to the north, south, west or any other angle that is set. This mode is used for sports where you have a wide open space and there are no obstacles to avoid, such as surfing or when flying at an altitude high above any potential obstacles. General Overview Chapter 4 30

4. General Overview HOVER � Hover & aim This is the simplest filming mode in which you can position AirDog at a fixed position and altitude and it will simply pan around and adjust camera pitch to keep you in frame. This was developed for tight places such as smaller skate parks with trees around or race tracks where you want to film a much faster moving car or bike than AirDog can actually fly. While in this mode the arrow buttons on AirLeash act as a remote control joystick to make AirDog positioning simple. LINE � Follow line If you love cable wakeboarding then this mode will make filming in a straight line cable park safe and simple. Place 2 endpoints of the flight path along the cable using the map in the AirDog mobile app and you’re ready to film and shred all day long. This mode can be used in many creative ways, just imagine what cinematographic effects you can achieve limiting AirDog’s movement along a straight line but being able to move around freely. 31 Chapter 4 General Overview

ADAP � Adaptive follow In this spectacular mode AirDog will travel relative to your movement. You can set it to stay at any angle relative to your direction, for example in front of you and it will do its best to make sure your smile is captured. If you suddenly switch directions, AirDog will fly around you to reposition itself to the front. This will result in a smooth panoramic footage. If you stop while AirDog is repositioning it will stop too. You can set AirDog to stay behind you and it will result in a chasing behaviour, AirDog will try to repeat your path and trajectory. CIRC � Circle around In this mode AirDog rotates around you continuously even if you are moving. In simpler terms, it will always fly around you and follow you. This mode is used for sports where you have a wide open space and there are no obstacles to avoid. This mode is used to capture your surroundings with a smooth panoramic footage. General Overview Chapter 4 32

4. General Overview 4.6.3 Landing Modes Landing is completely autonomous, allowing you to focus on your action. AirDog will land at the end of your run in close proximity to you, or return to the takeoff spot. Landing modes will be automatically initiated by AirDog when low battery level is reached or by the user manually sending a command from AirLeash. HOME � Return To Home In this landing mode AirDog will ascend to the preset Return To Home at safe altitude and then fly in a straight line to the initial takeoff or home location and land. The default Return To Home altitude is 65 feet (20 meters), but it can be adjusted via AirLeash. This is very useful for flat sports and water sports such as surfing. You can initiate the Return To Home landing mode manually by long pressing (4sec.) the button on AirLeash. AirDog will automatically initiate the Return to Home landing sequence to ensure a safe return to the HOME position. AirDog constantly calculates the distance to the HOME position and the “Return to Home” estimation is dynamic and determined by how far AirDog is from the HOME position. In simpler terms, if the user very far from the HOME position AirDog will Return to Home sooner than if the user was closer to the HOME position. 33 Chapter 4 General Overview

SPOT � Land On Spot In this landing mode AirDog will perform landing at its current position. Typically this is used in downhill sports such as snowboarding or skiing where you want to land AirDog at your chosen spot in the line of sight not far away from you when you’re done with your ride or when the battery is low. You can initiate the Land On Spot landing mode manually by short pressing the button on AirLeash.

5.2 Battery 5.2.1 Charging The Battery AirDog’s battery ships with approximately 30% charge, the battery must be fully charged before each flight. AirDog’s battery is a lithium polymer battery. Lithium Polymer batteries don’t have memory and the battery does not need periodic full discharge cycles to prolong life. Charge indicator LED To charge the battery: A. Manually connect the yellow wire to the adapter and the charger. If you don’t do that the batteries will not charge. B. Connect the battery to the battery charger provided. C. Plug the battery charger into a wall socket (100-240V, 50/60Hz) with the appropriate adapter. Once the battery is connected to the powered charger, the LED indicators on the battery will display the “connected” status code and the battery will emit a beep: LEDs status LEDs status — solid — empty While it is charging, the LED indicators will display the current battery level (see 4.3.1 Level Indicator). The battery is designed to charge when the temperature range is between 41°F (5°C) and 104°F (40°C). The battery will stop charging when these temperature levels are exceeded and the LED indicators will display an error code (see 4.3.4 Error And Status Codes). The battery will resume charging once the operating temperature is within the limits and after you’ve disconnected then connected again the battery to the powered charger. System Preparation Chapter 5 42

5. System Preparation The battery will automatically switch to Sleep Mode if it is connected to an unpowered charger for more than 30 minutes. The battery will resume charging after you’ve disconnected then connected it again to the powered charger. If a damaged battery is connected to the powered charger, the LED indicators will display an error code (see 4.3.4 Error And Status Codes) and the charging process will not start. Pressing the battery button while the battery is charging provides status codes used for service purposes only. Normal charging time should take 3 hours and AirDog’s battery is rechargeable for over 100 full cycles. A full cycle is when AirDog’s battery is charged from 0% to 100%. After 100 cycles, AirDog’s battery may provide less than 80% of its original capacity. ! • The red banana jack connects into the red terminal on the battery charger and the black banana jack connects into the black terminal on the battery charger. Do not reverse banana jacks and battery charger terminals at anytime. • Fully charge the battery before each flight. 5.2.2 General Guidelines And Warnings ! • Never charge the battery unattended. Always charge the battery on a non-flammable surface such as concrete and away from any flammable materials. • Lithium Polymer batteries are volatile. Failure to read, understand and follow the below instructions may result in fire, personal injury and damage to property if charged or used improperly. • Always use original AirDog batteries and battery chargers. Failure to do so may cause a fire, which may result in personal injury and property damage. • Do not disassemble, pierce, distort or cut the battery or the battery charger. It may result in a risk of electric shock or fire. 43 Chapter 5 System Preparation

You can check if the calibration is good by removing and inserting back AirDog’s battery. The gimbal should stand in a normal position (horizon is level). If the gimbal does not stand in a normal position and slowly drifts to either side or is shaking rapidly, you must start the process again from the beginning. Note that gimbal will automatically switch off after 10sec after battery insertion. Depending on where and how you fly, you could be unknowingly risking the safety of people around you. That’s not something to be taken lightly and this is why safety is the first measure to consider. By following these tips for drone safety and sticking closely to the existing rules, users can make sure they enjoy all the benefits of flying a drone without causing any problems. 75 Chapter 5 System Preparation

6. Safety 6.1 Know Your Surroundings And Flight Safety 6.1.1 Pre-Flight Checklist We recommend you go through the Pre-Flight Checklist before each flight: ! • Propellers are tightly attached and not damaged or bent. • Check if all motor retaining rings are in place. • Check if all motors are spinning freely. • AirDog body and arms are not damaged and there are no visible cracks. • Check if LIDAR lenses are clean from dirt or snow. • AirDog battery is fully charged, not swollen and it is securely inserted. • AirLeash battery is fully charged and AirLeash is securely attached around the wrist or upper arm. • GoPro camera is securely locked in place turned on and Wi-Fi is disabled. • Landing gears are oriented down. • Takeoff location: place AirDog on safe level surface. • Make sure that altitude difference between AirLeash and AirDog does not exceed 6-7 feet (2 meters). • Weather conditions: wind is less than 28 knots (15 meters per seconds, 32 miles per hour, 52 kilometers per hour), not raining, foggy or snowing. • Fly at least 5 miles (8 km) away from nearest airports and/or controlled airspace. • To see all the safety guidelines, check: knowbeforeyoufly.org/for-recreational-users Safety Chapter 6 76

6. Safety 6.1.2 Pre-Flight Requirements ! • Rotating propellers can cause serious injury. Never initiate takeoff from your hand. Do not try to grab AirDog before it lands automatically on the ground and before the propellers are switched off and stop rotating. • Do not fly AirDog indoors or at night. Always fly outside in open areas. • AirDog is not set up for obstacle avoidance and you must ensure there are no obstacles in the flight area that could disturb the flight, such as: trees, crowds, bodies of water, buildings or high voltage power lines. • Check the weather conditions and do not fly AirDog when the weather is windy, rainy, snowy, foggy, or when visibility is limited. These include wind speed exceeding 28 knots (15 meters per second, 32 miles per hour, 52 kilometers per hour). • Reduce the chance of electromagnetic interference by not flying AirDog in areas with significant high levels of electromagnetism such as base stations, radio towers or on-board radio transmission equipment. • Do not use AirDog under the influence of medications, drugs or alcohol. • Drones should always be kept away from police operations, accident scenes, building fires and rescue operations as there is a serious risk of mid-air collision with an aircraft or a helicopter, which could cause an accident. 6.1.3 Flight Location & Prohibited Takeoff Locations ! • Ensure that the use of AirDog is authorized in your flight area and at a safe distance of 25 feet (7 meters) away from individuals, vulnerable property, persons and animals. • Do not initiate takeoff from a boat or a moving platform. Even for very large ships, a boat is always moving. To perform its initialization, it is mandatory that AirDog remains completely motionless for a few moments. Such requirements are impossible on a moving platform like the deck of a boat. 77 Chapter 6 Safety

6.1.4 Flight Limits ! • AirDog may not operate within 5 miles (8 km) of an airport or within any restricted airspace. • FAA regulations require that Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) users may not operate their sUAS at an altitude of no more than 400 feet (120 meters) above ground level. Be aware that by default the maximum flight altitude for AirDog cannot exceed an altitude of 400 feet (120 meters). • FAA regulations require that Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) users may not operate their sUAS at a speed exceeding 87 knots (100 miles per hour, 160 kilometers per hour). Be aware that by default the maximum flight speed for AirDog cannot exceed a speed of 38 knots (20 meters per second, 44 miles per hour, 70 kilometers per hour). 6.1.5 Laser Warning ! • AirDog is equipped with a downward LIDAR sensor (circular lenses under the drone) which is a remote sensing technology that measures distance between AirDog and the ground by illuminating a target with a laser and analyzing the reflected light. Lidar prevents downward collisions should you suddenly descend too fast. Meaning, if you take a steep drop on a mountain bike, AirDog won’t bounce off the rocks. • The laser beams emitted by the LIDAR sensor can damage the retinas permanently. This is why it is important to take further security measures by never pointing the LIDAR sensor at anyone’s face or eyes. Safety Chapter 6 78

7. Flight ! Remember that AirDog is intended only for outdoor use in wide open places with a clear view of the sky, because AirDog requires a strong GPS signal to fly autonomously. A clear view of the sky will produce the highest satellite count and the best accuracy. Obstructions such as trees, buildings and mountains, electromagnetic interference from radio towers, or onboard radio transmission equipment, or the time of day, can reduce the quality of GPS. 7.1 Before Flight • Place AirDog and AirLeash on a level surface as shown below in order to acquire GPS lock and verify AirDog and AirLeash sensors (Sensor check). • Insert the AirDog battery* while AirDog arms are unfolded and long press (3sec.) on Power/OK button on AirLeash to power AirLeash** on. 79 Chapter 7 Flight
