    Finally a day off . No wind . Clear sky . Kid at school . Nothing to stop me... I walked round to the fields near me fired up the controller switched on the repeater .... arrgghh. . Forgot to charge it..

    I am near a small airport so I was only planning on low flying, practising my orientation skills (or lack of) I thought I'd have my first go in attitude mode now I feel confident so I hovered a few feet in front of me and switched down the right switch.... nothing happened ...

    My question is do I have to switch this mode on via a computer ? I have been reluctant to do this so far as it's been flying great.

    Advice as usual would be great

    Thanks

    If no wind, nothing happens much. Try with wind :)

    You mention a repeater so I'll assume you have a P2V. In order to have ATTI mode (and IOC with CL and HL) you have to switch to NAZA-M mode using the Assistant software. Read the NAZA-M manual to familiarise yourself with the light signals you'll see in NAZA mode which are different from those in P2V mode.
