Q:Why F121 can't be armed?

A:

1st,check if the binding is done with success. If there's signal tower on top of the transmitter home screen (AT9/AT9S/AT9S Pro/AT10/AT10II), it means binding is successfully done. If there isn't , long press the ID SET on the side of the receiver for 1s and release, the led indicator always on means the binding is done.

2nd, check if the receiver signal output is SBUS, which is BLUE for all RadioLink receivers. If it isn't, quickly short press the ID SET twice to change it blue.

3rd, check if the trimmer buttons of the transmitter throttle and rudder are centered (param. as 0). If not, set them 0, otherwise the mini drone can't be armed. For the radios with screen (AT9/AT9S/AT9S Pro/AT10/AT10II), it can be checked directly. But for T8S/T8FB, parameters are checked by connecting the transmitter to mobile APP or computer software. Or when get familiar, pilots can distinguish the sound differences and tell if the trimmer buttons are centered.

4th, confirm the channel phases. Channel 3 for throttle should be REVERSED while channel 4 for rudder should be NORMAL. Pilots can check the phases at the servo range displays.

 

Note

If it is AT9/AT9S/AT9S Pro/AT10/AT10II to work with F121,

1) The compatible receiver should be R6DSM.RC fans can remove the top cover of F121 to check.

2) Transmitter setup: Select the MULTIROTORS as model type in the menu and Altitude mode as STABILIZE or MANAUAL. Please refer to user manual of corresponding transmitter for details.

3) Channel quantity: As the compatible receiver R6DSM is 10-channel. Pilots need to change the channel quantity of the transmitter as 10. Long press the Mode key to enter the BASIC MENU -> Rotate the scroll Dial to highlight the SYSTEM option and press Push to enter -> Select the CH-SELECT and change the Number as required.

4) If the mini drone still can't be armed, please send mails to after_service@radiolink.com.cn 

 

 

If it is T8FB/T8S to work with F121,

1) The compatible receiver should be R8FM/R8SM. RC fans can remove the top cover of F121 to check.

2) If it's the old version of T8FB without USB port, please upgrade the firmware to V113 or above to be compatible with R8FM/R8SM. Please click below link and follow the steps to upgrade https://www.radiolink.com/t8fb_firmwares

3) Check if the transmitter and receiver function: get a flight controller which supports SBUS signal output and calibrate the transmitter in Mission Planner to ensure servo value of each channel is within normal range.

4) If the mini drone still can't be armed, please send mails to after_service@radiolink.com.cn 

Q: Why F121 fails to take off when it's armed successfully and the four propellers rotate?

A: Check if the propellers are reversely installed. If any of them is mistaken, F121 can't take off even the throttle is toggled to maximum.

In order to distinguish the correct rotation of the propellers, we can observe the right part of each prop with a higher part (windward surface) at the front. It it rotates anticlockwise with the motor, there are letters marked on it as CCW (counterclockwise). On the contrary, if it's clockwise rotation, then letters marked on the prop are CW (clockwise).

 

 

 

 

When installing, make sure the two props at diagonal positions are the same, both are CW OR CCW.

 

 

 

 

Q: Why my F121 rolls over/deviates/ cannot take off?

A:

1) Hardware checking: If any of the motors skewed, slightly adjust to vertical to the aircraft frame. If any of motors doesn't rotate, replace with a new one.

2) Servo displays checking: If all servo range are normal.

3) Calibration checking: Put F121 levelly, pull both joysticks of transmitter to the both outside corners for 3 seconds, the green indicator on the flight controller flashes once means the calibration succeeds.

4). If it's still unsolved, please send mails to after_service@radiolink.com.cn 

Q: How many flight modes of F121 are there?

A: There are three modes including Alt-Hold (Low Speed), Alt-Hold (High Speed) and Stabilize. Ch5 is the default channel for mode switch. Pilots can usually choose a three-way switch to set as Channel 5 to change flight modes.

 

 

Q: How to purchase accessories like propellers, motors, etc?

A: You can visit our Aliexpress official store https://www.aliexpress.com/store/4714037?spm=a2g0o.detail.1000002.2.50a364fdPIMJcJ to place order online or contact jessie@radiolink.com.cn if there's any special request.

 

Q:What do different indicator colors on the flight controller of F121 mean?

A:

FC Initialization - Green led flashes when F121 is leveled and powered on. After flashing stops and the led is off, it means the initialization of the flight controller/F121 is done and the mini drone is ready to be armed and take off.

Arm FC - When the flight controller/F121 is armed with success, the green led is always on.

Disarm FC - When the flight controller/F121 is disarmed with success, the green led is off.

FC Low Voltage Alarm - When the green led on flight controller flashes continuously, it means the power is getting low. Please take off the battery and recharge it as soon as possible to avoid over discharge.

 

Q: How do we know the propellers should turn clockwise or counterclockwise?

A: Check if there is a mark of 65MM R on the propeller, the propeller should turn clockwise. If there is a mark of 65MM on the propeller with the same color, the propeller should turn counterclockwise.

 

 

 

 

Q: I have changed the frequency point of the camera of F121, why it still shows the previous frequency point after I power off and restart?

A: After changing the setting of the camera, you need to long press the button to make sure that the setting have save succeed.
