Here are some UAV Expert tips on how to pilot your flying drones and quadcopters.
How do you fly a drone?
- LEFT STICK (yaw/throttle) The left stick controls two aspects of flying a quadcopter: the yaw and the throttle
- RIGHT STICK (roll/pitch)
- Read the instructions first
- Quadcopter Positioning
- Push the quadcopter throttle down
- Take off and land
- Take off and hold quadcopter position
- Rotate the quadcopter
How do you fly a quadcopter?
Rotate (yaw) your copter to a slight angle. Use the right stick to fly it left/right and forwards/backwards. Get comfortable flying the quadcopter while it faces a different direction. Rotate it to another angle, and use the right stick to maneuver it again.
