FatShark 101 Flight Modes & How to Use Controller Functions

Basic Operation of Controller

Important: All RC controls are proportional. Moving the control stick a small amount will result in a slow response. Moving the stick a large amount will produce a fast response. 

Flight Modes

Beginner: With the radio in your hands, move the flight mode switch in the top left corner to the top position (away from you) for Beginner mode. In this mode the quadcopter will automatically level and flight controls will be eased. When the pitch and roll sticks are centered, the aircraft will maintain a level altitude. Moving the pitch and roll stick will cause the quadcopter to tilt in the desired direction. This mode is also called Angle mode because the control stick position dictates a bank angle. 

Intermediate: Move the flight mode switch to the middle position for Intermediate mode. When flying in this mode, the aircraft does what the pilot commands with no automatic stabilization, however the maximum speed and rates will be reduced. This is also called Rate command or Acro mode. 

Pro: Move the flight mode switch to the lower position for Pro mode -- or Acro mode without limits. In general, the quadcopter in this mode will hold an attitude when the stick is released. But when the stick is moved again the aircraft will continue to flip or roll as long as the stick is held. 

Pro Tip: The 101 quadcopter flies without GPS stabilization; some drift during flight is normal. Always keep your fingers on the sticks to balance out the drift and maintain the thrust. 

Operation of the Wireless Video System

Video frequencies for this product operate on 5.8 GHz bands. The available frequencies are divided up into 2 bands with 8 channels on each. These bands also overlap and use the same frequency - so we recommend that you don't fly on different bands when in a group. 

Only one video transmitter can occupy a channel at any given time. If more than one transmitter is transmitting on a frequency, video reception can be disrupted. 

Headset Operation

The battery in the headset is a standard 18650 2600 mAh Li-ion cell, and can be charged with the built-in charger by connecting a micro-USB power supply to the headset.

Slide the 5-way button left and right or forward and back for brightness and contrast adjustment. 

Tap the 5-way button to scan for the strongest channel on your band. 

Tap the channel buttons to manually change frequencies; hold them to change bands.
