Free Drone Training Course 4 – Directional Control
The next thing I want you to practice is your directional control. We’re gonna start off with the drone again facing away from you pretend you’re at the camera and it’s facing towards the trees here.
So I’m, going to turn myself to orient myself with the drone, so we’re gonna go over a couple of the controls with the drone, so with the drone. The easy thing to remember is whichever way the camera is pointing that’s.
What the drone thinks is forward so, right now the camera is pointing towards the trees, so that’s where it’s, going to be considering what’s forward in order to move in that direction, it’S gonna be right, stick and up and it’s.
Gon na put the drone towards the trees right. Stick down. We’ll, bring it back. So what we’ll do. Is we’ll just test out some of those motions? So when the camera is facing that way, right stick up is going to send it towards the trees and then right, stick down is gonna bring it back from the trees right.
Stick to the right, as we know we’re facing this way in the drone is facing this way right. Stick right on one controller is gonna. Take the drone to the right and right stick to the left is going to bring the drone to the left, so this is with you and the drone facing the same way.
If we turn the drone around so now the drone is facing you. However, I’m still facing this way. We have to change our thought for how the right stick is going to make the drone behave. So again, I want to make it go towards the trees so using the right stick instead of pressing up on the right stick which is going to make it want to go forward in the direction of the cameras pointing I’m, going to go Down on the right stick and that’s, gonna send the camera or the drone, sorry towards the trees and then the opposite up on the right.
Stick is gonna bring the drone back towards us or back towards you, [, Music ]. We want to go that way. This is to our right. However. Now the drone is facing towards you that’s now the drones left so think it.
This is his front, and now that’s, his left. So, in order to do that, if you use the right stick but instead of going right, we’re gonna put a left input on the right stick, which is going to send the drone that direction and it sent it over there and then The same thing coming back it to me right, stick to the right, which is gonna bring the drone back in this direction, because that’s, the right side of the drone, and now it’s back and happy.
So when the drone is facing away from you all the directions right is right, left is left for is forward, and back is back when the drone is facing you. Everything is opposite one more way to try or to test this and play with it is face.
It away from you on one of the sides so now what we want to do is we want to do that same kind of flight path, so we want to send the drone that way just towards the trees. We know that the camera is facing that way.
So that direction is gonna, be the drones left. So in order to do that, it’s on the right. Stick. We’re gonna give it a left input and that’s, going to send it towards the trees now to bring it back. We know that’s, the right side of the drone, so we’re, going to put give a right input on the right stick and it’s.
Gon na bring it back now to send it that way. We know the camera is pointing that way, so that’s. What we’re, going to consider the front of the drone we’re gonna push up on the right stick and it’s. Gon na send it that way and then to bring it back, it’s down on the right stick, because that’s, the back side of the drone and it’s.
Gon na bring it this way. So I want you to practice all of those things just get used to when the drone is point pointing away from you or when the drone is facing you as to how it’s, going to react and what kind of inputs you have to Do right is right and left is left always with the drone, always consider yourself as being sitting there in the drone yourself and watching it, and always think right is right and left is left, but you just have to change your brain around your thought process around A little bit if the drone is facing you or off to the side and facing a different direction: [, Music, ],
