Manual Flight Using the RC

In an emergency, Marlyn makes it possible to control the drone manually to enable the user to steer away from any potential threats to people or property. To activate Manual Flight, the mission switch, labelled ‘A’ on your RC is used.

The mission switch is pressed in during a normal mapping flight, which places the drone into Mission Flight, which signals Marlyn to follow the flight plan in the autopilot and uses GPS for navigation (to be used at all times during the mapping mission).  

Activating Manual Flight

To move into Manual Flight, press the A button out to the neutral position.
