Precision flying can be scary. You can crash your drone and watch your hard-earned money go right down the drain. For that reason, many pilots are scared to practice precision flying.
At the same time, however, learning to fly precisely through gates and around obstacles can be extremely beneficial. It can help you get amazing aerial shots and distinguish you from other drone pilots.
But how do you practice precision flying?
Today, we talk to Bill in Oklahoma about precision flying. Bill calls in to ask how he can practice without crashing. While it requires overcoming mental obstacles and perfecting the fundamentals of flight, enough practice will have you flying like a pro in no time.
Thanks for the question Bill! Fly safe!
