Beast SG906 is a fantastic drone for beginners and experienced pilots that want to enhance their flying skills. However, getting up in the air can sometimes be a challenge, especially if you are a new drone pilot. We have compiled a list of steps to follow to simplify the set-up of the SG906 drone. This set-up guide applies to any SG906 drone family [SG906, SG906 Pro, SG906 Pro 2, SG906 MAX, SG906 MAX1, and SG906 MAX2].
Download an electronic version of the SG906 MAX Manual.
- Download the HFun Pro App via Apple Store or Google Play.
- Click here to view the full instructions of the HFUN Plus Manual.
- Ensure that you update the app to have the latest firmware.
- Remove the gimbal cover and make sure it is free from any obstruction.
- Turn on the battery by holding the button till you hear a beep. The lights will start flashing rapidly.
- Turn on the transmitter. Give it some time to search for satellites; ideally, you want to see around ten satellites to start flying. You will see the receiver battery power, indicating you are now connected.
- Do a compass calibration by holding down the photo key on the right side of the controller till you hear a beep [hold for about 3 seconds].
- Calibrate the drone by following the instructions on the app and prepare to take off. See the image below [relevant for app version 2.2.21]. After completing each step, you should hear a beep, meaning your calibration is complete. The lights on the back arms of the drone should now be solid. If not, you might need to repeat the calibration steps. See the image below.
- Press "Start" on the app, and you should now see the display on your phone.
- To take off, push both throttles [sticks] down and release OR use the Auto-take off button as indicated in the Remote Control Annotation.
- We recommend always using a Landing Pad before taking off.
NOTE: To control the drone through the app, your phone must have IEEE 802.11 WLAN to be compatible.

Struggling to Connect SG906 Drone To The Phone's WiFi?
Your mobile Wi-Fi needs to support IEEE 802.11 a / b/g/n / AC, IE, the 5G band WLAN. If your phone was released before 2018 and you are struggling to connect it, you could try the app on another phone [manufacturered after 2018]. Ensure that the WiFi signal in the app is colour white instead of grey. You can connect your phone to the Aircraft Wi-Fi by following the steps below:
- Turn on the aircraft.
- Go to the Wi-Fi settings on your phone.
- Look for aircraft in the available WIFI list.
- Click the Wi-Fi ( no password required ), and the phone will be connected automatically.
- Then go back to the application.
