This varies depending on the drone you have. Let’s look at quadcopters. You’ll use a handheld transmitter or an app to manage your drone, which is why it’s important to stay within range.
Generally, there are four controls:
Roll - Pushes the quadcopter to the left or right.
Pitch - Tilts the drone forwards or backwards.
Yaw - Rotates the drone clockwise or counter-clockwise. If you want to draw circles in the air or change directions while you’re flying, use yaw.
Throttle - Powers up the propellers and launches the drone in the air. When you’re flying, the throttle will be engaged the whole time. You can increase or decrease it to adjust the height of the drone.
