We all have great ambitions when we buy our first drones. We can visualize the perfect flight with our new quadcopter gliding effortlessly through the sky. We consider all the great shots we can take from this new vantage point. But, it is far to easy to get ahead of ourselves. You may have the means to get airborne, but you also need plenty of skill and drone pilot training to do so in style.
It can take hours of study and careful drone pilot training to get to grips with these machines. They are intricate pieces of technology that demand respect. Therefore, you need to master some of the basics of flight before you start showing off.
Ideally, you need to understand the following before you set off on any grand adventure.
- The basic specifications and jargon associated with your machine
- The fundamental controls for flight
- Safety considerations and checklists that are essential before any flight
- Some of the most important flight patterns
