Angle Mode

Angle mode – also known as stabilized mode – is used on most micro drones. It’s not the most recommended if you want to fully experience FPV racing and freestyle, but it great to practice flying micro drones, FPV ones especially.

You will have to manually control your altitude, while the stytem will stabilize the drone flat and horizontal when you release the sticks. We recommend to start in freeflight mode on the Laax environment. Switch to Angle mode using the menu.

First, try to get a feeling on the throttle. It will regulate your altitude. Use the yaw stick to orient the drone in the direction you want to go, then pitch forward to move in that direction. Strafe sideways using the roll stick. Once you understand how the drone reacts to the inputs, you should switch to the FPV camera.

The camera is at an angle so – when you’re not moving – it’s looking upwards. As you pitch to move, you’ll be looking at the horizon and moving forward. Try to fly around the mountain and – as you gain confidence – try to fly intentionally into gaps.

Once you are able to fly where you want, start trying very easy tracks, like Reutte Hairpin. With enough practice, you will quickly become able to fly a lot faster and more precisely. All the skills you learn here will translate directly to drone flying in the real world!
