Return to Launch

Set the RTL switch to ON to end your flight and return the X8 to the launch point automatically. Once you activate RTL, set the throttle stick fully down, and the X8 automatically disarms after landing. The X8 does not disarm automatically unless the throttle stick is set fully down.


When commanded to RTL, the X8:

1 Achieves minimum altitude of 15 m (50 ft) or maintains current altitude if above 15 m.

2 Moves to launch point and loiters for five seconds.

3 Lands at launch point. Wait for a few seconds until the X8 disarms automatically.


Reposition during landing: To adjust X8’s position during landing, use the right stick on the controller.
