How does the Situational Awareness display on the top of the FT Aviator work, and what should I do if I lose sight of my drone altogether?

First off, don’t panic! The Situational Awareness display on your FT Aviator is there to bail you out. With your smartphone installed in the phone holder, the display will show your drone’s relative position in the sky by means of the outer, red LED ring. Turn yourself and your FT Aviator/phone to place the red LED at 12 o’clock, and your drone is directly in front of you.

The inner, white LED chevrons will help you establish which direction the nose of your drone is facing. Yaw your drone such that it too is at 12 o’clock. At this point, you should be able to pull your drone directly back towards you, making sure you have sufficient altitude to clear any obstacles directly in front of you.
