The image below shows how your dashboard will look when you create a mission

Use the navigation panel to give Takeoff/Land/RTH and navigation commands to the drone.

🕵️‍♂️ Tips: Make sure to switch to 'P'-Mode, to allow FlytOS Mobile App to execute the commands.

🕵️‍♂️ Warning: When the drone is being controlled via FlytOS mobile application using the FlytBase platform, one may want to take back manual control over the drone. To do this, change the RC mode switch position to any mode apart from ‘P’ or ‘F’ mode. You can get back to ‘P’ mode once have taken control over the drone.

Make sure you have the required airspace regulatory permissions for flying the drone.
