underscores ("_"). It must not exceed 32 characters in length. Before starting check your smartphone's instruction manual (or the technical specifications) to see whether it supports connection to the 5GHz Wi-Fi band. If it doesn't use the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi band only. The 5GHz Wi-Fi band generally ensures the best performance of the MiniDrone because the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi band is more congested. The Country list enables you to choose the country where you use the MiniDrone. Activate the Outdoor option if you use the MiniDrone outdoors. Deactivate the option if you use it indoors. Depending on the mode (outdoor or indoor) and the country selected, not all of the choices may be authorized. In certain countries, for example, using the 5GHz Wi-Fi band may be prohibited in outdoor mode. In automatic mode, FreeFlight3 automatically selects a channel according to the country, the mode (outdoor or indoor), the Wi-Fi band selected and the congestion of the channels. Should you encounter a problem with the quality level of the Wi-Fi connection: 1. Select Manual mode. 2. Select a non-overloaded channel using the information displayed in the diagram: each curve represents an access point and the height of a curve represents the signal strength. So you should give preference to channel without curves or one where the signal strength is low. The number of times (2 or 5) the LED eyes flash green when starting up the MiniDrone indicates the Wi-Fi band used (2.4GHz or 5GHz). If your smartphone does not support connection to the 5GHz Wi-Fi band, you have Settings 13

the option of manually switching the network generated by the MiniDrone to the 2.4GHz Wi-Fi band without using the application. To do this, press down for 3 seconds on the button.
