Learning Inverted Yaw Spins | FPV 101: Phase 6, Episode 15

By | December 20, 2022

Inverted yaw spins are one of the more difficult maneuvers to do properly, and a lot of pilots won’t risk their quads in real life attempting it, especially not before trying it in a simulator first. They involve all the pain of maintaining a horizon line during a yaw spin, but now doing it upside down, with zero throttle, and catching yourself before your drone plummets back to the ground.
