Over the past few years, beetle drones have become full-fledged human assistants in many industries, ranging from promotional cameras to agrarian affairs. In the summer, tourists and recreational fans often use drones to document their travels or interesting locations. They shoot various things, including various countries, sights, plants, wild animals and exotic insects (such as hercules beetle).
The use of drone today is sufficiently demanded in many areas of human activity. Each of these areas requires a unique approach to operator training.
How to fly drone beetle?
The most modern drones have such modes as manual, attitude holding and GPS attitude flying hold. In manual mode, the remote controlled beetle is least stable. The pilot needs to control every flight moment and continuously monitor the drones. Therefore, without good skills and high attention he could not control it. In this mode, there are no speed limits. You can do complex aerobatics, fly with obstacles, make barrels and loops. The minus of this flight is the lack of automatic stabilization, so the system will not be able to help you if there is a risk of an accident.
This problem is solved in the mode of keeping the angle of the flight. Thanks to the stabilization of the gyroscope, the drone itself align to a neutral position when you deliberately release the joysticks or accidentally lose control. As soon as the drone automatically aligns its position, you must again take control of yourself and adjust the flight. Attitude Holding Mode is the optimal mode for a drone beetle with a controlled camera. Even if you are a beginner and have the least flight experience, you can get a smooth and accurate picture.
If the drone supports communication with GPS satellites, it can itself stabilize its position in three-dimensional space, maintaining a given height and direction. A GPS system is especially needed for a drone with a controlled camera. The photographer can give the remote control beetle command a hang on a certain point and fully concentrate on managing the camera, finding the right angles and successful frames. When recording video, the GPS system will smooth out the wind-induced interference. This is an ideal variant for a beginner who does not have experience in handling a drone.
How To Find A Robot Beetle If It Is Flying Away Or Lost In The Woods?
First of all, if the lost device is equipped with a GPS tracker: call your mobile operator. He will report the exact coordinates of the location of the “loss”.
Secondly, we advise you to take screenshots of the area during the flight. They will help you quickly find a fallen drone. Or track the flight on an interactive map in real time.
Thirdly, before starting the drone, check the battery charge level, make sure that the platform has recorded the starting coordinates and calibrate the device.
How To Prepare For A Flight?
Firstly, you need a backpack or a case for transportation, which, as a rule, can be ordered from the manufacturer of the selected drone. Advantages of a special backpack in the materials from which it is made (as a rule it is a moisture-resistant fabric), which help to preserve their integrity and intactness during storage and transportation.
Secondly, it is necessary to stock up with additional batteries Also, besides additional batteries, it is desirable to have a cable for charging from the car but ideally is a portable electric generator. As a rule, battery chargers have only one battery charging out, so for the time saving, it is necessary to purchase a special module that allows you to charge a few batteries.
One of the most important steps in preparation is the choice of the accompanying flight gadget: a tablet or a smartphone. Most drone beetles are controlled by iOS, Android or Windows devices. As a rule, today everyone has a smartphone and uses his own device as a “flight control center”. There are some basic requirements for a gadget:
The screen of your gadget should be big. But not always a big screen is convenient. Choosing this the required individual approach.
When the screen is constantly running at maximum brightness and WiFi connectivity, as a rule, the battery is very quickly discharged. Therefore, this factor must be taken into account and, as an auxiliary, have an additional battery for the gadget, or Power Bank.
System characteristics are also very important. The gadget should support the ability to download special modern flight management software, GPS, WiFi modules and high-speed mobile Internet connection systems, enough internal memory for downloading maps.
Another optional but very useful feature is the presence of a small GPS tracker that can easily be fixed on the drone. The main task of this device is the easy search of a remote controlled beetle on the surface of the earth, especially in the thickets when the device falls.
After preparing the technical component for the organization of flights, the next step is to select the right software for drones management, scheduling, and compilation of routes in autopilot mode. Typically, drone manufacturers provide the ability to download free apps for free to manage their devices.
When performing shooting using the autopilot function, you must be ready to switch to manual control. As a rule, it is very difficult to navigate with the choice of height when shooting. Do not forget then during a flight, the operator must always keep his drones in sight.
After completion of shooting on a given route, it is desirable to go to the manual control of the remote control beetle for the landing. Taking into account a set of possible small roughnesses, in the field conditions, it is desirable to land the device at low speed.
For the most part, downloading data to a computer takes place in two ways: via a USB cable or directly from a memory card.
As you can see there are a lot of modes in remote control insects. You need to choose which one is suitable for you.
