Lesson 3 is the first hands on experience students will have actually flying the multirotor. For this lesson they will be limited to the stabilize mode, throttle, pitch, and roll.
The firs step of this lesson is to set all of your flight modes to Stabilize. Right now, we will not be working with any other flight modes. By changing all of your flight mode positions to stabilize, the user can ensure that they will never accidentally switch to another mode. Follow the steps below to change the flight modes.
For this step you will be using throttle to maintain altitude and the right stick pitch and roll to control flight direction. Keep your flight altitude to under 10 feet and your forward and side flight distance to approximately 40 feet. This is start developing the feel of the sticks and multirotor reactions. The Stailized Flight Mode provides auto-leveling of the multirotor while in flight. Stabilized Mode may require some tuning of its parameters. More information on Stabilized Mode can be found here: Stabilize Mode
Homework: Spend 20-30 minutes each day practicing the maneuvers learned in class.
