This control helps to move the drone backward and forward. This is done by tilting your control, making it move to a direction forward or backward.

3. Yawn

This control is a bit confusing when you start to fly the Drone for the first time as it rotates the drone clockwise or anticlockwise. This control is normally used while the drone is flying, it helps the user to make circular patterns and mostly used by photographers and videographers to follow an object that might change Direction.

4. Throttle 

This control helps to give the drone enough power to get airborne. This control will keep the user engaged throughout the fly.

While the drone is facing you the controls are all switched. Still make sure that you start changing the new directions, because the drone will change its position according to how you will move it and not how the drone is being placed.
