What do I need to do to before takeoff?

Go outside to an open area away from people and buildings. Follow these steps in the user manual and flight checklist:

  • Turn on transmitter.
  • Connect battery.
  • Press and hold safety button until it shows solid red.
  • Wait for the LED to show flashing green (for GPS modes) or flashing blue (for non-GPS modes).
  • Arm motors.

After these steps, the X8 will be live. Raise the left stick to take off.
