- Familiarize yourself with the control functions and practice hovering steadily before attempting more advanced maneuvers.
Step 5: Landing and Shutdown:
- Gradually reduce the throttle using the left control stick and land the drone gently on a level surface.
- Once landed, power off the drone first, followed by the remote controller.

Take Off, FPV Holy Stone 600 Drone.
I think one of the things that intrigued me the most about flying drones was the FPV on your phone. When I first started buying drones, I had huge buyers remorse from the cheaper FPV's on some of the less expensive drones. I quickly learned that all drone apps are not created equally. Below is the real time actual screen shot of my Holy Stone 600 FPV App as it climbs to a little over 126 ft. AGL. I hope you enjoy the ride, as well as the Holy Stone FPV display!
