The supported flight modes are designed to optimize aircraft control for different conditions and purposes. The flight controller allows the aircraft to automatically Return-to-Home (RTH) if the remote controller signal is lost (i.e. Failsafe RTH) or when instructed to by the pilot (i.e. Smart RTH), ensuring the safe return of your aircraft. Flight data is stored to the device every time you fly and can be accessed anytime. Flight Modes Aircraft Three flight modes are available. The details of each flight mode are found below: P-Mode (Positioning): P-Mode works best when the GPS signal is strong. One of its two states will be selected by the aircraft automatically depending on GPS signal strength. P-GPS: GPS is available. The aircraft uses GPS for positioning. P-ATTI: GPS is not available. The aircraft only uses its barometer to maintain altitude. A-Mode (Attitude): GPS is not used for positioning, and the aircraft only uses its barometer to maintain altitude. If a GPS signal is present, the aircraft will still return to the last recorded Home Point if the remote controller signal is lost. F-Mode (Function): Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC) is supported in this mode. Refer to the IOC section in the Appendix for more information. The Flight Mode Switch is locked in P-Mode by default. To enable other flight modes, go to the DJI GO app Camera View Advanced Settings Enable Multiple Flight Modes. LED Indicators The Phantom 3 Standard has two Front LEDs located under the two front motors and two Aircraft Status Indicators located under the two rear motors. Front LED Aircraft Status Indicator The Front LEDs glow solid red when the aircraft is turned on and help you orientate the aircraft when it is in the air. You can switch off the Front LEDs in the DJI GO app to achieve a better filming result. The Aircraft Status Indicators indicate the status of the flight controller. See the table below for details of its blinking patterns DJI. All Rights Reserved. Aircraft Status Indicator Blinking Patterns Normal Flashes red, green and yellow alternatively Flashes green and yellow alternatively Flashes green slowly Turning on and running self-diagnostic test Warming up Safe to Fly (P-Mode with strong GPS signal) Flashes yellow slowly Warning Flashes yellow quickly Flashes red slowly Safe to Fly (A-mode but No GPS signal) Remote controller's signal lost Low Battery Warning Aircraft Flashes red quickly Flashes red (Alternates with other patterns) Critical Battery Warning IMU error Glows solid red Critical error Flashes red and yellow alternatively Compass calibration required Return-to-Home (RTH) The Return-to-Home (RTH) procedure brings the aircraft back to the last recorded Home Point. There are three types of RTH procedures: Smart RTH, Low Battery RTH, and Failsafe RTH. The following sections describe them in detail. Home Point GPS Description The Home Point is the location at which the aircraft takes off. A strong GPS signal ( ) must be present for the aircraft to record the Home Point. If the Home Point is recorded successfully, the Aircraft Status Indicator will blink green rapidly. Smart RTH Tap in the DJI GO app or toggle the S2 switch on the remote controller back and forth at least twice to initiate Smart RTH. The aircraft will first ascend to the Return-to-Home altitude, then return to the last recorded Home Point if a GPS signal is available. During the RTH procedure, you may use the remote controller to guide the aircraft around obstacles. Tap or toggle the S1 switch once to terminate Smart RTH and regain full control of the aircraft DJI. All Rights Reserved. 11 Low Battery RTH When the Intelligent Flight Battery is depleted to a point that may affect the safe return of the aircraft, the Low Battery Level Warning or Critically Low Battery Warning will appear in the DJI GO app. The thresholds for these warnings are automatically determined based on the aircraft s current altitude and distance from the Home Point, but you can also set your own fixed thresholds as extra precaution. Observe the Battery Level Indicator as you fly your aircraft. The 12:29 icon displays the estimated remaining flight time, and the H icon represents the point when the battery level is just enough for the aircraft to return to the Home Point. The 12:29 icon gradually moves to the left as the battery is consumed. Aircraft When the 12:29 icon enters the yellow region, the Low Battery Level Warning will appear and prompt you to Return-to-Home. The aircraft will automatically return to the Home Point if no action is taken after 10 seconds, but you can resume normal flight by tapping or toggling the S1 switch. When the 12:29 icon enters the red region, the battery level can only support the aircraft to land from its current altitude. The Critically Low Battery Level Warning will appear and the aircraft will begin to descend automatically. You should find a suitable location to the land the aircraft immediately. Critically Low Battery Level Warning (Red) Low Battery Level Warning (Yellow) Sufficient Battery Level (Green) Remaining Flight Time Power Required to Return-to-Home Battery Level Indicator 12:29 Battery Level Warning Description DJI GO App Aircraft Low Battery Warning The battery level is just sufficient for the aircraft to safely return to the Home Point. Prompts the pilot to start the Return-to-Home procedure. The Aircraft Status Indicator flashes RED slowly. The aircraft will automatically return to the Home Point if no action is taken after 10 seconds. Critically Low Battery Level Warning The battery level can only support the aircraft to land from its current altitude. Alerts the pilot of the aircraft s automatic descent (cannot be cancelled). The screen will flash RED. The Aircraft Status Indicator flashes RED quickly. The aircraft begins to descend and land itself automatically. While the aircraft is in automatic descent, you can still control the aircraft s movement although its ascent speed is very limited. Use this opportunity to find a suitable landing location DJI. All Rights Reserved. Phantom 3 Standard User Manual Failsafe RTH Failsafe RTH will be triggered if the remote controller signal is lost for more than three seconds, provided that a Home Point was recorded previously. You can regain control of the aircraft if the remote controller signal is recovered. Failsafe RTH Illustration ① Record the Home Point ② Flying ③ Remote Controller Signal Lost Aircraft Status Indicator: Flashing Green Aircraft Status Indicator: Flashing Yellow ④ Signal Lost 3s, Return-to-Home ⑤ Return to the Home Point ⑥ Auto Landing after Hovering for 15s 3s Aircraft Status Indicator: Flashing Yellow Height over Home Point 20m Aircraft Aircraft Status Indicator: Flashing Yellow Flashing Green Ascend to 20m 20m Height over Home Point =20m Aircraft Status Indicator: Flashing Yellow Aircraft Status Indicator: Flashing Yellow The aircraft will automatically descend and land if Failsafe RTH is triggered when the aircraft is within a 20 meter (65 feet) radius of the Home Point. During the RTH procedure, if you move the throttle stick after the aircraft rises above 65 feet (20m), the aircraft will stop ascending and immediately return to the Home Point. The aircraft cannot Return-to-Home if the signal is weak ( [ ] is grey). The aircraft cannot avoid obstacles during the Failsafe RTH procedure, and therefore it is important to set a suitable Return-to-Home altitude before each flight. Go to the DJI GO app Camera View Advanced Settings Failsafe Mode to set the Failsafe altitude. Flight Data The aircraft automatically keeps a record of detailed flight data including telemetry measurements, aircraft status information, and error messages. To export this data, connect the aircraft to the PC through the Micro USB port and launch the DJI GO app to export this data. This data can be later analyzed with the proper software if necessary. Attaching and Detaching the Propellers Only use official DJI Phantom 3 propellers with your Phantom 3 Standard.
