    Mode 1 reverses the control setup...So the left stick is Fwd/Aft and the right stick is Up/down. Reverse of what American Tx's are set to.

    You can enable "Naza" in the assistant software. Its advisable to watch some videos on Course lock and Home lock functions before trying to use them.

    Ive read over the manual and I saw nothing of setting RTH or home lock. Didnt say anything about how to actually use these features either. It did say that if I needed to take control of the Phantom to switch to position 2 or three on the toggle switches. It didnt say anything about which position does what either except that position 1 was GPS mode.

    Here is s a video showing the process of enabling NAZA mode:

    Here is a video of Courselock and Homelock being demonstrated.

    Courselock and homelock are not availble in Phantom Vision mode, you must enable NAZA mode to be able to change/set the functions of S2 switch.

    The S1 Switch can be set to GPS/ATTI/MANUAL (manual mode is dangerously fast and responsive)
    Most prefer to set S1 to... ... GPS/ATTI/RTH
