In this guide, you’ll learn the basic on how to fly a Drone.
Practice makes perfect
Transmitter/Remote Control – The hand-held device that allows you to maneuver the drone and adjust its settings.Propellers – They spin according to the manual controls of the pilot. The intensity of the spin correlates to the intensity of the drone’s movement. Camera – Many drones either come with a camera or allow the pilot to attach a camera to them. This is how pilots practice aerial video Graphs and photography. (A camera came in second place when we interviewed UAV experts about their favorite drone accessory
(Note: For simplicity’s sake, this article assumes that the left stick controls yaw and throttle, and the right stick controls roll and pitch. Some transmitters allow the pilot to switch these controls based on what’s most comfortable.) Roll – Done by pushing the right stick to the left or right. Literally rolls the drone, which maneuvers the drone left or right.
Pitch – Done by pushing the right stick forwards or backwards. Tilts the drone, which maneuvers the drone forwards or backwards. Yaw – Done by pushing the left stick to the left or to the right. Rotates the drone left or right. Points the front of the copter different directions and helps with changing directions while flying.Throttle – To increase, push the left stick forwards. To decrease, pull the left stick backwards. This adjusts the altitude, or height, of the drone.Trim – Buttons on the remote control that help you adjust roll, pitch, yaw, and throttle if they are off balance. The Rudder – You might hear this term thrown around, but it’s the same as the left stick. However, it relates directly to controlling yaw (as opposed to the throttle). Aileron – Same as the right stick. However, it relates directly to controlling roll (left and right movement). The Elevator – Same as the right stick. However, it relates directly to controlling pitch (forwards and backwards movement).
