Tried to use the orbit function today, but no go. I'm fairly sure I had everything setup properly. First issue I got was a warning after pressing engage was that distance from subject greater than 33ft or something close to that message. The aircraft and RC were side by side on the ground. I decided to go ahead anyway and after the count-down the bird lifted-off to eye-level and hovered with error "failure to take-off". I assume the take-off failure was due to the previous error. I then just landed the bird manually. So I'm just not sure why this happened?
