You also need to remember that a quadcopter has a front side and a back side. If the quadcopter is facing you the above-mentioned controls are switched. If previously pushing the right stick to the left made the machine roll to the right now it will make the machine roll to the left. All other controls are also adjusted accordingly. A transmitter also known as the remote controller comes with a number of parts buttons antenna and handle. There are two sticks: right and left. The right one controls roll and pitch and the left one controls yaw and throttle. Recall that throttle adjusts the altitude and yaw allows you to rotate it in either direction. Then there are trim buttons with each stick that are used to balance out the controls. You will need to fly your copter by pushing the throttle stick upwards and then see if it tilts automatically or flies itself to some direction without you even pushing the other controls. When this happens you will need to use the trim buttons on your transmitter to adjust the controls.
Finally and this is a brilliant feature the Blade Nano QF BNF Quadcopter includes a "return to sender" button. At any time you can hit this button and your Nano will return straight back to you no matter where they are at that time. This alone is extremely useful for any time you have lost sight of your drone and need it back! Some buyers have complained about a weak RF signal sent from the remote control module saying that the signal isnt strong enough to support long-distance flights or those that climb higher and higher into the sky. However considered that this particular quadcopter has an advertised effective range of 200+ meters that really shouldnt be all that much of an issue. If you need to go higher and further than that you probably need a bigger more powerful drone. Secondly this specific remote-controlled quadracopter can be a bit of a challenge to fly particularly if you dont have any real experience backing you up with UAVs or drones.
Ready-to-Fly are the most commonly used UAVs among general public hobbyists and entrepreneurs. As it is clear from the name these types of flying machines do not need much assembly as they come equipped with the required functionality and you only need to put in the batteries and you are good to go. These RTF vehicle are designed to provide the user with many basic and advanced features which are quite useful for a number of applications. The latest quadcopters come with a 12 MP camera for taking excellent quality aerial photos as well as record 4K video. They also offer live HD video streaming on your smartphone or any other hand-held device. The newest ones are associated with a mobile app to give you more control over its functionality as well as use a flight simulator for learning to fly. The flight times vary from model to model but a fairly good quality quadcopter provides up to 30 minutes of continuous flight time.
This was an easy decision. Since this was going to be my first multirotor I threw out the idea of a 6 or 8 motor design right away. Theres already too much complexity in even a very basic design. No need to make the job any harder! I was going to keep it really simple and then go on from there. Tricopters have been very successful. But I really hate the idea of the yaw (directional) stabilization servo in the back. I see it as a weak point. Just like a traditional helicopter it is another weak point susceptible to mechanical failure. So in the end the decision was easy. I went with a quadcopter design. This is a very simple design where the motors are spinning counter-rotating propellers.
