Hello drone pilots having a drone business made you need to have flying skills this video is about getting good at flying, I’ll assume you already know the basics about flying so i’m not going to bore you with that of course you know the one key to honing your skills is practice practice practice.
Here are some tips tricks and maneuvers you can practice tip number one take it slow it’s easy to push the stick all the way in one direction fly fast and loose and sometimes crash but practice control by flying slow learn when to use each fast shot or a slow shot tip number two which is also a maneuver is flying low and fast
Now that you’ve got really good control it’s time to learn how to fly fast and low going low and fast white excitement to any video but it is also easy to crash practice by getting a little higher and lower gradually getting faster than gradually getting lower to the ground using a big open space to practice it is best to do this in a low wind situation a sudden gust can shove your own to the ground if you’re over the water be very aware of the waves a big enough wave can rise up and catch the drone and it’s all over tip number three flying close objects without an object avoidance system.
Sometimes you just want to be closer to get that best shot this one takes confidence and lots of practice.
Always go slow around object, remember wind around buildings can be different the closer you get especially at the windy day an easy tip just turn off the motors and hand hold it let the gimbal do all the work.
Now let’s get into a few different types of maneuvers that are relatively easy and look really cool. Probably one of the easiest and cool shots is the straight down shot fly your drone high and point your camera straight down. Experiment with different heights for different effects just takes almost no practice, just an awareness of objects in your path of course. At 400 feet there shouldn’t be anything in your way.
Another maneuver is flying at and over an object. This is pretty easy to master with a little bit of practice flying straight it’s something and then ascending up as you still fly forward, just make sure you don’t hit what you are trying to fly over.
This can be a cool effect at fast or slow speed the slower the speed. The more anticipation you give the viewer, of course too slow and you will bore them. On top of flying and over you can also try flying left or right. Well you said and this is another cool reveal that is pretty easy to master.
He basically fly sideways and then fly up to reveal what is behind building or line of trees. It’s just a different variation flying at something here’s a fun one doing an orbit without software. Sometimes you just need to do the orbit yourself. It is cool enough to hard to master basically you’ll either point each stick directly in, or directly out. Experiment with varying degrees on each stick to get some cool shots. Make it even better by ascending descending or both during the orbit. Watch out for objects in your path and now something a little bit more challenging tilting the camera while moving it is just cool look pick an object in the center of the screen moving up down forward or backward. Keep your camera on like tilting the camera angle it takes a bit of practice to make this look smooth and you can experiment with being different distances from the object to focus.
This is a cool look while ascending descending buying forward or backwards. To really challenge yourself combine the up or down with front or back, that should be enough to get you going for some awesome shots. What are some of your favorite maneuvers to use let us know in the comments
