Let’s take a look at the steps involved in carrying out bank turns.

  1. 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.
  2. Apply just a little bit of aileron to bank your machine.
  3. Keep increasing the altitude of the quadcopter.
  4. 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.
  5. Apply aileron to prevent the quadcopter from getting lifted or collapsing into or out of the turn.
