Flying the DJI FPV drone can be an exhilarating experience. However, before you can take off, you’ll need to know how to properly fly the drone. In this article, we’ll provide step-by-step instructions on how to fly the DJI FPV drone, so you can get started on your aerial adventure.
Step 1: Prepare the Drone
Before you can start flying, you’ll need to prepare the drone. Start by removing the DJI FPV drone from its case and placing it on a flat, level surface. Make sure the drone’s battery is fully charged, and insert it into the battery compartment on the bottom of the drone. Turn on the remote controller by pressing the power button on the top.
Step 2: Pair the Drone and Remote Controller
Once you’ve turned on the remote controller, you’ll need to pair it with the drone. To do this, press and hold the power button on the drone until the LED lights on the front start flashing rapidly. Then, press and hold the button on the side of the remote controller until the LED lights on the bottom start flashing rapidly. Once the lights on both the drone and remote controller are flashing rapidly, the two devices are pairing. Wait until the LED lights on both devices turn solid, indicating a successful pairing.
Step 3: Connect to the DJI Fly App
To control the drone and view the camera feed, you’ll need to connect to the DJI Fly app on your smartphone. First, download and install the DJI Fly app on your smartphone. Then, connect your smartphone to the remote controller using the USB cable provided. Open the DJI Fly app on your smartphone and follow the on-screen prompts to connect to the drone.
Step 4: Take Off
With the drone prepared, paired with the remote controller, and connected to the DJI Fly app, you’re ready to take off. Press and hold the takeoff button on the remote controller, which is the button with the arrow pointing up until the drone takes off. Use the joystick on the remote controller to control the drone’s altitude and direction.
Step 5: Fly the Drone
Once you’re in the air, it’s time to start flying the drone. Use the joystick on the remote controller to control the drone’s movement. The left joystick controls the altitude and rotation, while the right joystick controls the forward, backward, left, and right movements. To perform a 360-degree flip, press the “C” button on the top right corner of the remote controller and move the right joystick in the direction you want the drone to flip.
Step 6: Return to Home
When you’re finished flying, it’s important to safely return the drone to its starting point. To do this, press the “Return to Home” button on the remote controller, which is the button with the arrow pointing down. The drone will automatically return to its starting point and land safely.
Step 7: Turn Off the Drone and Remote Controller
Once you’ve safely landed the drone, it’s time to turn off the drone and remote controller. Press and hold the power button on the drone until the LED lights turn off. Then, press and hold the power button on the remote controller until the LED lights turn off.
Flying the DJI FPV drone can be an exciting and thrilling experience, but it’s important to take the necessary steps to fly safely and responsibly.
