Tips and Maneuvers for new Drone Pilots

There are a lot of great videos on how to fly a drone.  I didn’t want to just be another one of those.  I put this video together to show different maneuvers you can do with a drone to get some really great videos with fairly simple combinations.

As I state in the beginning of the video, PRACTICE is the most important thing.  Without it, you won’t be able to reliably re-produce these actions and get great videos.  If your goal is to be an exceptional pilot, then you need to practice.

Another key to getting it right is starting out slow.  Flying slow allows you to think before you act.  It allows you to create muscle memory.  That means when you have to act without thinking, you act appropriately and safely.  Whenever starting a new maneuver, take I​ slow until you feel comfortable going a little faster.


Something I don’t mention in this video is that each drone can fly a little different.  The controls are the same, but the reaction from the drone may be slower or faster.  Keep that in mind, and make sure you accommodate appropriately.

One of the most under used and cool effect I talk about in this video is the tilt and move maneuver.  Practice that one, and play with variations of it, and you will see some awesome results.

Enjoy the video, and remember to always fly safe!
