This video will show you how to activate your DJI aircraft. We’ll use the phantom 4 as an example. But this video as applies to phantom 3 and inspire 1 series aircraft. Use a USB Cable to connect your mobile device to the remote controller then turn on the remote controller and the aircraft. Open the DJI Go app on your mobile device and an activation prompt will appear. Activation is required when you first connect you aircraft to the app. Doing so will also activate your 1 year warranty. Press next and name your aircraft. You can change the name later in app if you want to. After you’ve named your aircraft press continue and set the stick mode. You can also set a custom mode in the RC control setting after activation. The default stick mode is mode 2.
Press continue and set the shortcut keys. You can assign various commands to the C1 and C2 buttons on the back of the remote controller. Press continue and choose your desired flight setting and video format. Press continue and choose whether or not to activate beginner mode. The aircraft is set to beginner mode by default. Beginner mode will not allow you to fly without a GPS signal. Also the aircraft will only fly 30meters or 98feet vertically or horizontally from the recorded home point. Press continue to confirm your account and press activate. After your aircraft is activated we recommend using the flight simulator in the DJI Go app to hone your skills. You can also watch vide tutorials under the tutorials for beginners and practice flying safely. Please note that the account used for activation cannot be changed. Your aircraft’s information will be bound to this account and serve as proof for your warranty.
