Publisher's Summary

Drones: Mastering Flight Techniques is a complete guide to flying your drone. Created as a standalone book, it is also the natural follow-up to the first book in the series, Drones: The Professional Drone Pilot's Manual, and was designed to support and guide you as you build on your piloting experience.

With Drones: Mastering Flight Techniques, you will learn how to grow your confidence with proven and practiced flight techniques that also add to and enhance your current skill set. Within the book you will learn many flight and filming techniques, some industry specific but many that can be applied to multiple situations.

There are step by step methods for the following:

  • Numerous "reveal" shot techniques
  • General drone filming and photography methods
  • How to film moving targets with examples
  • Tried and tested methods for creating professional surveys, map making, and 3D models - along with examples
  • Racing drone flight techniques

As well as a multitude of flight techniques, there are also sections dedicated to good airmanship, airworthiness, what to do in the event of a crash, and weather conditions. The book also contains actual worked examples and finishes with some additional tips and FAQs.

As UAV/drone pilots, it is important that we fly safely at all times, this book was written with the hopes of not only increasing your skill as a drone pilot, but also to ensure that you get the most out of your drone. Have fun and fly responsibly.

Excellent overview (pun intended)!

Easily understood explanation of the areas you must master to be an effective drone pilot and photographer. While no book can replace stick time I expect to refer back to this material as I gain experience to fine tune my technique and procedures for producing quality drone footage.
