Use the Combination Stick Command (CSC). See manual for instructions on how to accomplish this:

Lisa is 100% correct, however I have highlighted a very important sentence.

You really really should read the manual before flying. Especially for important safety features.....

Thanks so much for all the responses don’t remember reading that would take care of a take off gone wrong or actually was called take off abort thought that was just talking about a normal landing is there an online version of the manual?

Im still stunned people spend $1000 on a drone and can't even be bothered to read the manual before or even after using it.

This will be an ongoing comment ... untill its legislated... pass basic knowledge, then you will be able to enable motors....

...we did have someone here months back actually posting asking how to start the motors...

But yes, legislation is inevitable and i believe now needed.

I found that the manual lacks some kind of "scenarios" section, to explain operation based on a normal situation. So it can be hard to apply what is read directly to a "panic" situation like a drone flopping around a boat.

Chris Rollins has a YouTube video of shutting down and restarting his MP in the air. Here's a link for it.

Nice video. How do you restart? Same as shut off procedure I assume?
