What is Headless Mode?
How Do Drones Work in Headless Mode?
New models of small trainers or toys are emerging on the market, and their primary focus is on one of the Headless Mode features. Why is this feature so important and what is the difference in the drones being managed in normal mode and "Headless mode" mode? You will get the answer in this article.
At the beginning, the drones were flying (only) in normal mode and, for beginners, the directional flight management was confusing for them. When the drones fly in normal mode, they observe directions to their nose, i. if the droning is with your back to you and you are giving the move forward, the dron will move away from you in the forward direction. But if his nose is to the left towards you, when commanded, he will move to the left towards you. (see the picture). This is very confusing and it is difficult to get used to this droning control if you do not have a camera (FPV camera) on which to navigate where the platform flies. In Headless Mode, which is turned on by one button on the remote control, when the command is forward, and the droning nose is to the left of you, it will move away from you forward to you rather than to the left where it points to the nose.
