How to drive a Drone: Mode 1 and Mode 2

By  Sigismondo Eisenhower 2019-07-11 406 0

We have understood what a Drone is, tried to find out where the origin of his word comes from and seen in which areas it is possible to use an APR. Today we will try to answer another question: How to pilot a Drone and what does Mode 1 and Mode 2 mean?

drive a Drone

Yawing, rollig and picthing

To control your vehicle you need to "work" on the three axes (Yawing, Rolling and Pitching) and know how to manage the height (Hovering).

If hovering can be explained as maintaining a constant altitude at zero speed (in other words, keeping the drone in the air without movement) and this can be linked to the Throttle command (power control if the drone rises in altitude, if it falls) you must be more careful when talking about Yawing, Rolling and Pitching.

Yaw, or YAW, is the rotation around the vertical axis

Moving the Yaw stick to the left will rotate the multi-rotor to the left, i.e. counterclockwise.

Moving the stick to the right will rotate it clockwise to the right.

Rolling, or ROLL, is the rotation around the longitudinal axis

If you move the roll stick to the left, the drone will lower the left side and raise the right side, so there will be a left-hand movement.

On the other hand, moving the stick to the right will result in a movement to the right.

Pitch, or PITCH, is the rotation around the transverse axis

If you move the pitch stick forward, the drone will tilt forward, lowering the nose and consequently the speed of the front engine, raising the tail and thereby increasing the speed of the rear engine.

This allows our model to move forward or backward (if you move the stick backwards).

MODE 1 or MODE 2

Unlike helicopters (where you can also fly in Mode 3 and Mode 4), most Drones can only fly in Mode 1 and Mode 2.
