Three flight modes: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced, allow different sensitivity of control. Other safety features include: Return To Land in case of a signal loss and one key Take-off and Land, that provides great assistance for inexperienced pilots.

Ergonomic Style Remote Control
One thing that I am looking forward to testing out is the new remote control that has actualy been designed with some ergonomic considerations, from the back it looks quite similar to an Xbox controller which is already one of the most comfortable gamepads . But put this next to the actual quadcopter and it doesnt exactly match the sharp angles of the quadcopter :stuck_out_tongue. But it it makes it easier to use and more comfortable I am all for it.
