In this article, we’ll endeavor to explain how to carry out bank turns with your quadcopter. Bank turns is not a tough nut to crack. Having said that, you must be familiar with the technicalities in a bid to perfect your bank turns.
Before you learn bank turns, you should be pretty proficient with hovering, nose-in hovering and forward flight.
Let’s take a look at the steps involved in carrying out bank turns.
- Move your quadcopter in the forward direction at about 5 mph. This will ensure that you provide your device the required momentum you need to start the turn.
- Apply just a little bit of aileron to bank your machine.
- Keep increasing the altitude of the quadcopter.
- Appy yaw continuously. If you fail to apply sufficient yaw, the machine will start collapsing into the turn. Too much yaw will lift the quadcopter out of the turn.
- Apply aileron to prevent the quadcopter from getting lifted or collapsing into or out of the turn.
A remote controlled flight simulator can certainly help you if you are having issues in getting in terms with bank turns. A USB simulator kit could also be an option if you have a transmitter with a trainer port.
