Whether you’re looking to become the next big FPV racing champ or learn the basics of drone flying so you can capture some cool aerial footage – you’re in the right place.
Drones have sparked a fire of creativity in hobbyist flyers and commercial pilots alike. From mapping new designs, spearheading a new method of overhead cinematography, to racing through creatively constructed courses, drone enthusiasts have taken their inspirations to new heights.
But before you run outside and take to the skies with your brand new drone, it’s essential to make sure you are familiar with your controls and terms!
How do you control your drone?
Most FPV drones come with a controller and a special headset that allows you to see what your drone sees!
On your average controller you’ll find 2 main sticks that act of your throttle and help control the direction your quad flies in – because, spoiler, your thumbs will be telling you’re drone where to go!
Your controller is also decked out with additional AUX switches for toggling between other flying modes, as well as the ability to switch on other features (i.e.: lights).
