Calibration: Flight Modes¶
This article shows how to use APM Planner to select flight modes and save them to your transmitter’s switch positions. For other calibration tasks see Autopilot calibration.
Before preforming setup, ensure that:
- The vehicle is completely built to flight condition.
- Firmware has been loaded onto the autopilot.
- Autopilot is connected to APM Planner and connected to MavLink.
- Radio calibration is complete.

Under Mandatory Hardware, select Flight Modes. Turn on your transmitter and move the switches to their available positions to see which flight mode will apply to each position. The currently selected position is shown highlighted in green. Select a flight mode for each available switch position. Some sample modes for copters are shown below.
