If you want to be the master of your drone, it might be better to learn flying using the ‘regular’ aka non-headless mode drone. Most drones with headless mode are toy grade, whereas the more serious drones often don’t have the headless mode feature. That being said, if you’re nervous about being able to control your drone, headless mode provides and easy entry into the world of drones.
If you want to fly in FPV (first person view) mode, you won’t want to get a headless mode drone.
When using Headless Mode to fly your quadcopter, you might want to keep in mind these helpful tips.
- Before setting the quadcopter in headless mode, a flight direction proof is required.
- The head of the quadcopter needs to be set ahead of the pilot, and the tail should be facing the pilot before binding the signal between copter and transmitter. The nose of the quadcopter should now be pointing forward.
- This direction should henceforth be considered as the “forward” direction.
- The user should always face the forward direction when the quad-copter is in headless mode. The user’s body’s direction should not be altered.
