Starting/Stopping the Motors

Starting & Stopping the Motors

 

Select an open area for flying, away from people and buildings, and remember to bring the Flight Checklist and a fully charged battery. Determine the boundaries of your flying area before takeoff, and select a level, unobstructed space as a launch point. Assuming you have already attached the propellers and connected the battery, you can follow these instructions to start and stop the IRIS motors.
