New to flying multirotor aircraft? This guide for the ELEV-8 V2 Quadcopter is a perfect place to start learning. Topics include RC transmitter controls, safety guidelines, arming and disarming your flight controller, beginning and advanced flying techniques, and optimizing your multirotor performance.
The first thing you need to know is:
If you have an ELEV-8 Quadcopter you must register it with the Federal Aviation Administration's UAS Registry before flying outdoors.
Multirotors Are Not Toys.
You will not be capable of safely handling and flying a multirotor, including the ELEV-8 Quadcopter, unless you have respect for the dangers they present. In the worst case scenarios, multirotor misuse can cause grave bodily injury and damage to property, in addition to significant legal fines, jail time, and insurance payments. However, if you follow all instructions, guidelines, and safety warnings, and use a healthy dose of caution and common sense, piloting and interacting with multirotors is not a particularly dangerous activity. Unfortunately, far too many individuals — especially beginners — do so only after they have a near-miss or incident. Please don’t let that happen to you.
"Don't be a show-off. Never be too proud to turn back. There are old pilots and bold pilots, but no old, bold pilots."
– E. Hamilton Lee, 1949
