New Feature List & Description
Point Of Interest (POI)
The long awaited Point of Interest flying is now available in v3.0. With Point of Interest you can easily use the EYEControl: NovaX app (on iOS and Android) to set customizable flight parameters that keep the NovaX 350 focused on a central point of flying. Now keeping that monument, person or whatever it is you want to stay in the center of the shot is all handled for you autonomously within the NovaX 350’s flight controller system!
There are 2 different modes available to select within the Point of Interest menu.
With manual POI then you are still in control of the NovaX 350 via the R8 radio. Simply choose a Point of Interest on the map and hit play. At this point yaw will be disabled on the radio as the copter is now handling keeping the front face of the NovaX focused on the selected location. Forward/backward and up/down still function as normal, whereas now roll to the left or right will now cause the NovaX to fly in a circular pattern around the POI based on the direction in which you give the stick command. This allows you to enjoy setting up for the perfect shot without the need to think about how to give the right
stick inputs to keep your shot centered.
To stop manual POI simply hit the stop button or switch flight mode on your R8 radio.
With auto POI the NovaX 350 is flown completely autonomously. Once selecting the location on the map you can completely customize the settings of your selection:
Radius (m): This will adjust the radius at which the NovaX will fly around the central point. When adjusting the radius the ring on the map location will adjust to show the path radius.
Velocity (s/turn): This is the speed at which the copter will travel when following the circular path around the central point.
Rotation Direction: You can choose the direction in which the NovaX 350 travels around the circular path.
Height (m): Select the height that the copter will travel above ground to ensure clearance of any obstacles.
You can stop the Auto POI by simply hitting the stop button, or at any point giving input on the R8 radio sticks will also override the Auto POI.
Low Battery Alert - R8 Radio
Included in the new v3.0 release is an all new low battery alert for the R8 radio. An update of your R8 radio will be required with the latest firmware version for this to take effect. With the updates in place your R8 radio will now give an audible tone notifying you when the voltage on your lipo is low. It coincides with the low voltage notification that takes place on the NovaX 350 copter and is an added assurance should your NovaX 350 be out at a distance where the low voltage warning is not audible.
With each update we are always working to improve our products and make them even better! A few small bug fixes have also been addressed within the app and we have improved the flight characteristics of the NovaX 350 even more to ensure the pilot get’s the absolute best experience possible!
