    Hi guys,

    On that; I've found this video:

    But it is for the older remote; where the throttle stick normally lies down. How do we regain control with the new remote/latest firmware? Today a friend accidentally turned the TX off and I had to only hope the Phantom will land close enough to the starting point so not to hit something - turning back on the tx did NOT resume control whatsoever.

    You turn on the remote and that switch the x1 from gps to attitude mode, this will allow you to regain control the same goes for if you trigger the fail safe with the xi switch, switching into attitude mode will regain control.

    You sure? I've seen somewhere that if you do it via the X1 switch it should work that way, but if you actually turn off the whole remote, there should be a more complicated procedure to regain control back again? Please, advise.
