Beginner Mode: This is the default mode that drones come in. In this mode, the drone will only take off if it has a good GPS signal, and its flight distance, height, and speed will be limited. Beginner mode lets first-time users get familiar with the controls safely. Once you feel comfortable flying the drone, you can toggle it off.

These settings control how fast the stick inputs are translated into movement by the drone. The higher the value, the more responsive the drone will be to stick movements.

EXP (Exponential Curve):

EXP values reflect the logical relationship between the control stick movements you make and the feedback from the aircraft. The X-axis represents how much the control stick is being pushed, and the Y-axis represents the amount that the aircraft responds based on the adjusted EXP value.

Please note that EXP is not available on Spark.

Sensitivity:

You can adjust the sensitivity of your controls in this part of the app:

Attitude: How fast your drone will react and level out

Brake: This controls how fast your drone will brake in GPS mode. The higher the value, the more abrupt the brake.

Yaw Point End: This controls the speed of the yaw. The higher the value, the faster your aircraft will yaw.

Gain:

These settings control how fast the aircraft reacts to external forces such as wind. It is recommended not to change them unless you’re a proficient pilot. Changing these settings will change the way your aircraft flies, and if you set them up wrong, then it may result in your drone being unstable in flight. The EXP changes the controlling feedback by adjusting the curve of the remote controller. The sensitivity implements this by adjusting the reaction speed of the craft during flight.
