Exercises To Improve Flights With Your Drone
Once you have learned all the basics to fly a drone, the next step is to practice again and again until you manage to master it with mastery and professionalism. This is a process that can take a while, depending on each person, but practice makes perfect! So today I bring you some exercises that you can do when you are learning to fly your drone!
- Float all the time !: Before embarking on any adventure, you must first do things step by step. Therefore, the first thing you have to master is to maintain the stability of your drone constantly and to give it an orientation. For this, spend as much time as possible with your drone floating in the air in one place. Once you manage to maintain a secure stability, it is time to learn to rotate your drone. Do it clockwise, slowly, turning around 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock.
- Fly in circles: It’s time to handle the controls in their entirety. To do this, mark a central point where you will fly your drone around. Position yourself to the side and start making circular paths. With what you learned from the previous step, the challenge here is that you turn your drone always looking at the same central point, so here you will not only practice the flight itself, but also the stability and rotation of your drone during this. Try it in different ways such as turning for or against the hands of the clock, with the nose out and in, etc.
- Figure 8: As the name implies, the objective of this practice is to trace routes in the form of 8 applying all the bases of the previous steps. Place your drone at a safe distance. Do not go fast, the challenge of this practice is focused on your accuracy and not on your speed, because the more speed the greater the chances of your drone getting out of control. Go slowly during the tour and do it in both directions.
- Landing of the nose: Here we are going to focus on the precision that must be had to land the drone at a specific point. Mark a point on the ground and move your drone a few meters away from it, about two meters high. Then, turn your drone around and return it to the reverse point. Here you will practice direction, orientation and a cushion effect for landing. Remember to go slowly and calmly!
- Try a flight simulator !: Probably at this point you can read all these steps as a safe pass to crash your drone. But do not worry! There is a solution that will help you fly safely while you get used to the controls of your drone and they are the simulators! These are PC’s and mobile applications that provide you with all the flight practice tools a drone can have. Try it until you have the total confidence of flying with your drone directly!
