How to Fly a Quadcopter/Drone (Basic Tutorial)

okay here's a small tutorial about

flying the quadcopter

a basic level tutorial for example this

one is the transmitter it looks like

this the transmitter of the quadcopter

it's moving all around the right stick

is moving all around also okay and this

is the quadcopter itself it's a syma x5c

these are the propellers it has four

propellers so that's why it's a quad

copter quad means four okay and let's

start with some basic things so here on

the transmitter on this one we have the

left stick which is moving all around we

have the right stick that one's moving

all around also these butters are for

making some corrections the other

buttons also exactly on this model this

one is for making photos and videos but

the onboard camera is removed this is

the battery of the quadcopter it's a

small battery okay and this one has also

batteries here for double-a batteries

okay so both of them are electric

devices and let's start with some basic

things for example this stick on the

left side as you can see it's freely

moving up and down but this one is

spring-loaded it comes back to the

initial position this one comes back on

the horizontal direction but it won't

come back on the vertical direction and

that's because this one up and down is

controlling the height of the quadcopter

so if you raise this one this joystick

up for example like there then the

quadcopter will go higher if you

lower it then it will go lower so this

is for going up and this is for going

down up in the air and down to the

ground okay you can move this one to the

left or to the right that one left and

right is for turning left or turning

right so if I move this one the joystick

to the left like so then it will

continuously turn to the left if I let

it over it will not turn if I move it to

the right then it will turn to the right

continuously until the joystick this

stick is released okay so that's up

going up going down turning left and

learning right okay you can combine

these movements also so you can turn to

the left while going up or while

descending so in this position I'm

descending and turning I'm going up and

turning to the left

same here I'm turning to the right and

going up turning to the right and

descending going down okay let's go to

this joystick this joystick is for

example the left and right movement is

for inclining the quadcopter

so it will turn this way and it will go

that way to the right and if I move it

to the left then it will tilt this way

and it will go to the left that way so

just stick to the right it will go to

the right in a linear direction just

stick to the left it will go that way in

a linear direction the same thing with

going ahead that we are tilted that way

and go

head that way forward if I move the

joystick towards me down then it will

turn this way it will come towards me so

left right forward and backward okay if

I talked about forward and backward that

is forward and backward then we can see

I painted this quadcopter the propellers

were not black it's black because I

wanted to make a distinguishing the

black is the rear part and the white

propellers are the front part of the

quadcopter so if I move let's stick a

head up then it will go that way but if

it's this way and I move it up then it

won't go that way because this is the

head the white one and forward is this

way the quadcopter does not have a

headless mode in headless mode the

quadcopter would always go towards the

transmitter for example if I pull the

stick down then it will come towards me

whether this one is the front and that's

the end or this the front and that's the

end but since this quadcopter does not

have headless mode if I position it this

way then the front is to the left and

the back is to the right if I command it

to go ahead then a head for him is this

way because the white propellers are

here if it's that way and I press the

head then a head is that way so you must

know the direction of the quadcopter and

for that we have some LEDs here the red

LEDs are the front and the green LEDs

are the back so you can see even lower

light condition also the plastic fell

off from here okay enough talking let's

get to some action I won't fly high

because it's very windy and this is very

light and when we blow it away so since

there are electric devices I have to

turn on the transmitter this is the on

button I have to turn on the quadcopter

also that's it it's blinking blinking

that means that it's not bound to the

transmitter not yet so if I move any of

the joysticks it won't do anything

unless this one is moved up and down now

it's bound and when it's bound this

quadcopter is not flashing the LEDs is

constantly on okay so this one controls

the height so that's for going up and

going down if I don't move it

then it's spinning constantly

okay done

so it's windy out here that's why I

don't want to fly it okay and let's move

it to the right I mean left notice that

it's not doing anything until you give

it some thrust that is spin up the

propellers from this one what is the


ouch okay so and I tweet care spinning

propellers at high speed will cause

damage so once again some speed and

notice the directions it's moving that


now to the left


that's fighting the wind the constantly

had to correct it oops okay if the wind

blows the way then better get it down

turn off this one when it's turned off

then it loses the signal from the

transmitter it's blinking you can turn

off this one also

and that's it for this basic tutorial

thanks for watching
