1. P-Mode (Positioning): P-Mode works best when the GPS signal is strong. One of its two states will be selected by the aircraft automatically depending on GPS signal strength.
a. P-GPS: GPS is available. The aircraft uses GPS for positioning.
b. P-ATTI: GPS is not available. The aircraft only uses its barometer to maintain altitude.
2. A-Mode (Attitude): GPS is not used for positioning, and the aircraft only uses its barometer to maintain altitude. If a GPS signal is present, the aircraft will still return to the last recorded Home Point if the remote controller signal is lost.
3. F-Mode (Function): Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC) is supported in this mode. Refer to the IOC section in the Appendix of the User Manual for more information.
The Flight Mode Switch is locked in P-Mode by default. To enable other flight modes, go to the DJI GO app > Camera View> MC Settings > Advanced Settings > Enable Multiple Flight Modes.
Toggle the S1 switch to enable P-mode and then follow the instructions in the DJI GO app to enable Multiple Flight Modes.
2. Store the Intelligent Flight Battery and remote controller between 22 and 28 degrees Celsius. For more details about Intelligent Flight Battery storage, visit
- Compass error, calibration required
This warning message indicates that the aircraft is receiving abnormal compass readings. It is recommended that you power off the aircraft and re-calibrate the compass at a different location and then resume the flight.
- Compass error, exit P-GPS Mode
This warning message indicates that the aircraft is drifting severely. Bring the aircraft to a higher altitude where the GPS signal is stronger or switch to A-mode. In A-mode, the aircraft cannot hover in place accurately. You are advised to flying before using A-mode.
Do not apply external force to the gimbal after the gimbal is powered on.
Do not add any payloads to the gimbal, as this may cause the gimbal to function abnormally or even lead to motor damage.
Remove the gimbal clamp before powering on the gimbal. Re-install the gimbal clamp to secure the gimbal's position if you are going to store the aircraft for an extended period.
Follow Mode: The pitch angles of the gimbal and the aircraft stay the same.
FPV Mode: The pitch and roll angles of the gimbal and the aircraft stay the same, providing a unique first-person view.
Push the Anti-drop Pin through the damper and the center of the ring. Press them together until you hear a click. Only 2 pins installed adjacent from each other are required during use.
2. Ensure the mobile device holder is firmly in place and does not slip.
3. Ensure the antenna of the remote controller is unfolded and adjusted to the proper position to achieve optimal transmission quality.
4. Repair or replace the remote controller if damaged. A damaged remote controller antenna will greatly decrease performance.
5. Linking the aircraft and the new remote controller again is required if you wish to replace your remote controller or receiver.
For more details, visit
The linking procedures are:
Turn on the aircraft and press the Link Button. The button will blink red when the aircraft is ready to link.
Switch on the remote controller, turn the gimbal dial to the far left, and toggle the S2 switch back and forth quickly for at least three times. You will hear a pulsating beep sound when the remote controller is trying to link to the aircraft.
The remote controller will stop beeping and the Link Button on the aircraft will turn solid green if linking is successful.
Check whether the remote controller sticks are centered and calibrate the remote controller with the DJI GO app.
2. Adjust the position of the antennas for the remote controller based on the Attitude Indicator in the DJI GO app duing flight to obtain the optimal transmission. For more details, see the following tutorial video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7M9JtfVwQE
3. Enable the hardware decoding if using an iOS device. Or try with another mobile device. Upgrade the firmware for the DJI GO app and aircraft to the latest version.
4. If the issue still occurs, contact DJI Support.
2. Fly the aircraft in a place free of interference.
3. Remove and insert the cable connecting the gimbal and aircraft.
4. If the issue still occurs, send the product to DJI for diagnosis.
It is not recommended to fly in very cold environments (i.e. air temperatures below minus 10 degrees and 5 degrees Celsius).
End the flight as soon as possible if the Low Battery Level Warning appears when you are flying in low temperature environments.
Try to warm up the battery indoors prior to flying in low temperature environments.
Keep the battery core temperature above 20 degrees Celsius to ensure optimal performance.
The charger will pause the charging process if the battery core temperature is out of operating range (0 to 40 degrees Celsius).
Ensure the temperature of the Intelligent Flight Battery exceeds 5 degrees Celsius before takeoff.
To warm up the aircraft battery, power it on inside the battery compartment for approximately 1-2 minutes before takeoff. Begin flying by hovering the aircraft at a low altitude for approximately 1 minute to ensure that the battery temperature is stable
After the protection issue is resolved, press the power button to turn off the battery protection warning. Unplug the Intelligent Flight Battery from the battery charger and plug it back in to resume charging. Note that you do not need to unplug and plug the battery charger in the event of a room temperature error. The battery charger will resume charging when the temperature falls within the normal range.
When charging is complete, the battery will automatically power off.
The battery automatically discharges to below 65% when it is idle for more than 10 days to prevent it from swelling. It takes approximately 3 days to discharge the battery to 65%. It is normal that you may feel moderate heat emitting from the battery during the discharge process. Set the discharging thresholds in the DJI GO app.
The battery will enter hibernation mode if depleted and stored for a long period. When in hibernation mode, if you try to power on the battery, the battery power LED will show a solid red light and the battery level LEDs will all be off. You cannot manually turn off the battery power LED in this state. Leave the battery unattended for 5 minutes, and the light will turn off. Recharge the battery to bring it out of hibernation.
Remove batteries from the aircraft when stored for an extended period.
2. Android: Samsung tabs 705c, Samsung S6, Samsung S5, Samsung NOTE4, Samsung NOTE3, Google Nexus 9, Google Nexus 7 II, Ascend Mate7, Huawei Mate 8, Nubia Z7 mini, SONY Xperia Z3, MI 3, MI PAD and Smartisan T1.
*Support for additional Android devices available as testing and development continues.
It is recommended that the aircraft is turned on and the mobile device is connected to the remote controller within 24 hours after the photos are captured. And the captured photos will be cashed automatically under Editor in the DJI GO app. Here’s a tutorial video showing how to use the editor:
H: Indicates the vertical distance between the aircraft and Home Point.
HS: Indicates the horizontal speed of the aircraft.
VS: Indicates the vertical speed of the aircraft.
The red arrow indicates the aircraft's orientation.
The ratio between the blue and gray areas indicates the aircraft's pitch.
The horizontal level of the blue-gray boundary indicates the aircraft's roll angle. For more details, see this tutorial:
