本文これ↓↓↓↓ Back to Basics #6: How the hell does Headless mode work?! Video tutorial for visual learners/non-English speakers: https://youtu.be/IvHMhCD5Vpc Explaining how Headless mode works for Hubsan aircraft is much more confusing than actually understanding how it works. I promise! My goal is to clearly show and explain how Headless mode functions on Hubsan GPS units. A little bit of background on how I was taught to fly, first. Usually, a pilot must become familiar with an aircraft by flying with the head facing forward. Then, as I was trained, one turns the drone around so that the tail is facing forward- and start learning how to fly all over again. Once a pilot is proficient flying backwards- it’s time to turn the left side forward (rinse and repeat the above). Then, the right side (rinse and repeat the above). Granted, I only made it past the first two steps. I was not able to learn how to fly with the left or right side facing forward (work caught up to me before I could learn). The entire point of Headless mode is for the pilot to fly forward, backward, left and right without having to consider what *side* of the aircraft is facing forward. Therefore, with an aircraft on Headless mode, you can do what I was never able to do on my trusty old H107D and D+: fly the aircraft effortlessly with the left or right side facing forward. Tada. To access Headless mode on a Hubsan GPS unit, *first* make sure that you “set” a forward direction. Say, you’d like to consider due North as your “forward” direction. Have the drone’s head facing North- then and only then, initiate Headless mode. On a Standard transmitter, you would press on the throttle stick (you will feel a click) briefly to activate Headless. On an Advanced transmitter (H906A or FPV1), you would push the A switch up. If you’ve followed the steps above, you may fly your aircraft without need to worry about what side is facing “forward”. However, if you’ve neglected the very important step of making sure that the aircraft head is facing the direction you wish to consider as “forward”, it will appear as though Headless mode is not working. Usually, as is the case, Headless mode is functioning normally- the pilot in question just may not know how to use it. If you want to turn in another direction and fly your Hubsan GPS aircraft in Headless mode in another direction, you must reset the forward direction. To do this, simply turn off Headless and then point the aircraft head in the new “forward” direction. Then, reactivate Headless. Have a look at the below diagrams for further clarification.
