This cheap 250 mini quad setup is great for someone who just starting in this hobby. It’s purely based on the parts available on this 250 quadcopter parts list. I have personally tried most of these parts, and they were giving me good results. It’s totally fine to replace any parts you want in your custom build.
Flying a quadcopter continuously requires you to rotate and change directions simultaneously. This will take some getting used to, because the quadcopter will be facing different angles in relation to how you’re facing, so you will need to pay close attention to how each movement of the sticks will affect the quadcopter’s flight.
To rotate your quadcopter, use the throttle to get airborne. Once at a comfortable hover, push the left stick in either direction. This will rotate the quadcopter in place. Rotate it 360 degrees. Then push the left stick in the opposite direction and rotate it 360 degrees the other way. Keep doing this until you’re comfortable with it.
This is where you will hone your simultaneous control skills. To fly a quadcopter in a circle, you will use pitch, roll, and throttle at the same time. As usual, use the throttle to get airborne. Then, decide whether you want to fly clockwise or counterclockwise. For this example, we’ll assume you’re flying clockwise (to the right).
You’ve gotten off the ground, and you know how to fly a quadcopter in the four basic directions. Now, it’s time to combine these skills and start flying in patterns. This will help you get a feel for simultaneously engaging the controls. To fly in a square pattern, keep the quadcopter facing away from you the entire time.
To fly a quadcopter left, right, forwards, and backwards, you will need to hold the throttle at a steady rate to keep it airborne. You will then use the right stick to maneuver the quadcopter in the direction you want it to go.
