Flying a drone for the first time can be tricky.
Here are some trips to keep in mind before taking to the sky.
You can practice on the ground with a simulator app like parrots AR drone sim or the flight simulator from 3DR When you're ready for the real world, choose a wide open area away from power lines, trees, and people.
Do a pre-flight check making sure the battery is secured and propellers are attached.
If it's your first flight, consider using the easy flight mode if your drone has it.
What we're gonna do is just push up on the throttle.
[SOUND] And it's gonna take off.
Practice hovering the drone and slowly increase elevation as you get the hang of it.
Then try basic movements with the controller like altering pitch and yaw.
You always wanna keep your eyes on the aircraft.
So, that way, you're making sure you're not gonna fly into anything.
And just take it slow.
It's a good idea to position the camera facing away from you.
And so at this point when you push forward on the stick it's gonna go forward, when you push back on the stick it's gonna go back.
Left is gonna be left right is gonna be right.
Some drones have a built-in GPS feature that lets it hover in one position and then return to the same location it took off from.
But it's a good idea to keep the drone within sight because sometimes GPS can lose signal.
When it's time to land, bring the throttle down gently and hold.
Remember, a drone can crash So is it happened and it probably will, release the [UNKNOWN] immediately
