The Free X has some pretty impressive features.
“Onetouch 4” Aircraft Control Board: Onetouch 4 is extremely easy to setup, program and tweak should one need to tweak the parameters further to tame the Quadcopter to their flying tastes.
Two flight modes: Offers two very beginner friendly Flight modes: 1.The Attitude and Altitude Hold mode: Quadcopter will hold its altitude and attitude once all the sticks are centered. 2. The GPS Position hold mode: Quadcopter will hold its altitude, attitude and GPS position once all the sticks are centered. It’s the perfect feature for beginners to learn to fly as this gives them plenty of time to build their orientation and flying confidence.
Carefree Flight Mode: Also offers the carefree flight mode feature that is the best training feature for beginners to build their orientation. Once turned on, no matter where the quadcopter forward section is pointing to, the orientation on the radio sticks will always stay the same as pilot’s orientation. That means on right stick the Cyclic Aileron and Elevator control (mode 2 radio)
Auto-return Function (with the world’s first full-time all channel active control during RTH): Free X quadcopter with the Free X flight controller offers very precise and reliable Auto Return to home both on Demand and on failsafe.
A) Hover at last known position: Once the control signals from Radio control are lost, the quadcopter will hold its last know position and will hover at the same altitude and GPS position. It will not return to home. This is the best feature to use if you are flying in an area with tall trees or flying inside a city where if the failsafe RTH activates and your quadcopter flies back to home, there is a possibility it will crash into any building or tree in its way back home. Users can then walk or drive closer to get the quadcopter back in control range and start flying again.
B) Auto return to home and land: If this mode is selected using radio failsafe switch before flight, once the control signal islost, the quadcopter will fly back to home (take off position) and land. During this time, as soon as the quadcopter comes back to range, the user can gain full control and descend quickly, ascend again if there is something on the landing zone or control the quad to avoid trees etc on the way back to home (once control signals are established).
C) Auto return to home and land on demand: Feeling tired and don’t want to fly back home? No problems. Users can select Return to home and activate RTH failsafe with a simple flip of a switch and your quadcopter will fly back to home and land. During this time, users will have full control to descend quickly, ascend again if there is something on the landing zone, and or control the quad to avoid trees etc on the way back to home. Once users leave the sticks to center the quadcopter will resume its return to home and landing.
Low voltage protection: When the voltage is lower than the set voltage in the Free X parameter control software, the LEDs on the quadcopter will blink to inform the pilots of low voltage on battery and pilots can easily fly back and land the quadcopter before battery totally runs out of power.
Safety Protocol Algorithm: FreeX has a special SPA (Safety Protocol Algorithm) for electronics, that can prevent GPS glitches once or if the magnetometer is damaged or not working properly. This prevents abnormal flight behavior, out of control drift or fly away.
High Intensity LED Lights, To Aid Orientation During Flight: There are some high intensity LED indicators which are used to help you to see the orientation during flight.
Fuselage structure: The fuselage structure is stronger than other brands and 70% resistant to crash and impact damage.
Optional full CNC aluminum alloy brushless gimbal: Optional lightweight, two-axis brushless gimbal for GoPro cameras. Easy to install, plug and play. No complex setup or tweaking parameters for Gimbal. Just install the GoPro, and power it up to use.
2.4 GHz 7Ch Transmitter: The transmitter is an all-in-one design specially made for the Free X and is pre-programmed for your convenience.
PC Software Tools Supplied: User can calibrate as per their preferred flying style and experience. The new software version adds the neutral point calibration, accelerometer-gyro, barometer, magnetometer calibration mode (it’s also the calibration mode of pushing up the throttle and CH4 to the left).
To use higher capacity batteries – you will need to purchase the Larger fuselage bottom case for use with higher capacity batteries
