    That's it? Can I use for anything except resetting the connection?

    Many thanks

    I think you mean the S2 switch (lefthand side?). S1 is for setting the flight modes :)

    It has three functions, that's it.
    Relinking RC with AC.
    Resetting wifi password.
    Getting the RTH to work when the app is not doing it.

    In the back of my head, I was also wondering the same thing. It used to be that the S2 allowed you to select HL and CL modes (on the older Phantoms, I think). But now, a 3-way toggle switch seems unnecessary when a single button would've sufficed.

    I agree. Seems in-elegant to me when the rest of the package is so slick!

    What so inelegant about a three position toggle switch? It's a functioning radio control not a fashion statement.

    The word elegance can be applied to mathematically formulae, aspects of design or a scientific experiment. For example you could argue that 3 buttons for 3 functions would be more "elegant". It has nothing to do with aesthetics in this context. But thanks for the input.
