I need to calibrate the control unit

Calibration ensures that the control sticks have correct center point and range, the status LED on the GCS unit will blink red and a beeping sound will be heard when calibration is necessary. The control sticks can be calibrated with the DJI GO app by following these steps:

  • Install "DJI GO--For products before P4" (or "DJI GO" on iOS) on your personal device. We do not recommend, to install it on the provided tablet. Cockpit and DJI GO do not get along well.
  • Connect the GCS to a device with DJI GO, turn on the GCS and launch DJI GO
  • DJI GO will automatically detect the Lightbridge 2, press on the "Camera" button


DJI GO will ask you to update the firmware of the Control unit. DO NOT do this. The firmware version of the controller must remain at version 1.2.10



  • In the next screen, press the settings icon in the top right corner
  • In the settings menu, select the transmitter icon tab, then press on the "Remote Controller Settings" arrow


  • Press on the "Remote Controller Calibration" arrow

If you have installed DJI GO on the Elios tablet, uninstall it before flying the drone with the Cockpit app. Since both apps will try to connect to the GCS transmitter, the video and telemetry signals might get interrupted on cockpit.
