Usage and Capabilities

How do I get Dragonfly to fly?

Drone instructions

  1. Place the drone flat on the ground before you turn on the battery. The front LED lights will flash blue slowly.
  2. When the rear LED lights rapidly flashes blue, the drone is doing a self check. The lights will briefly turn solid blue and make a DI-DI-DI noise when the self check is completed.
  3. Keep people 2 meters away from the drone before starting the flight.

Smart watch instructions

  1. Turn on the drone before turning on the watch.
  2. Do not start to control until the watch screen is stabalised and a sign of connect appears.
  3. It is recommended that you do not take off until the watch has 12GPS satellites and the flight icon () appears in the top left of the watch screen.

Tracker instructions

Turn on the tracker and keep the tracker and watch no more than 1 metre away from each other.

Auto-follow mode instructions

Do not use auto-follow mode until 8GPS satellites appear in the bottom left of the screen. Once you have enough satellites, a F icon will appear and this is required before using auto-follow mode. If you have less than 8GPS in the bottom left of the screen it will not be safe to follow effectively and may behave irrationally.

How do I switch between flight modes?

It is necessary to press the hover button before every flight mode. Please study the manual thoroughly before use.

What is Follow mode?

When activated Dragonfly will follow you wherever you go! Record and capture your best stunts, tricks and journeys in stunning 4k.  Dragonfly will follow you down slopes, tracks and around circuits. This unique mode allows you to record your adventures without the aid of another person. Never miss a moment, as Dragonfly will follow and record you from start to finish! And with a maximum speed of 20mph, Dragonfly is ideal for skiing, snowboarding and off road mountain biking.

What is Hover mode?

Hover mode should be used before transfer from one mode to another.

Use hover mode to capture those perfect moments in time. Get perfect still photos or selfies from impossible angles. With Dragonfly you can decide the distance, height and angles that will capture the perfect photo. No more sitting cameras on walls, rocks setting the timer and rushing your pose. Just set Dragonfly to hover and use the app to capture the perfect photo.

For extreme sports, find the height and angle for that perfect stunt and take the picture at the moment of your choice for stunning still images.

What is Panoramic mode?

Ever tell a story and say picture this? Well with Dragonfly you can guarantee people will picture the scene with the panoramic mode. This mode adds a different dimension to your video footage. Capture your landscape and beautiful scenery in stunning 4k 360 degree footage. The Panoramic mode gives depth and imaginable perception to your videos. Dragonfly can record images in the air, cycling in a 360 degree circle using the smart watch. You can also increase and decrease the diameter of the footage circle by 5 meters at a time  at the press of a button.

What is 360° mode?

The 360° mode allows Dragonfly to cycle around you in a 360 degree circle using the smart watch.

How does Dragonfly track me?

Dragonfly uses GPS to track and watch and tracker. You need both the watch and tracker to ensure it will follow you. Do not use auto-follow mode until 8GPS satellites appear in the bottom left of the screen. Once you have enough satellites, a F icon will appear and this is required before using auto-follow mode. If you have less than 8GPS in the bottom left of the screen it will not be safe to follow effectively and may behave irrationally.

What happens when Dragonfly loses track of me?

Dragonfly will hover in place and try to recover the signal. As soon as it finds you, It will go back to whatever mode it was in before it lost you.

How fast can Dragonfly fly?

It can fly at a max speed of around 20mph.

Always keep Dragonfly in your vision and never fly across a building or any other obstacles which may cut your vision and connection to the watch.

Can Dragonfly track other people too?

Yes, just hand them the GPS watch and tracker.

Can Dragonfly follow multiple people at the same time?

No, Dragonfly can only follow one person at a time. This person needs to have both the watch and the tracker on them for the drone to follow. However, Dragonfly can video and take pictures of multiple people using the 360 degree panoramic function.
