Learning Split-s Turns | FPV 101: Phase 6, Episode 12

By | December 14, 2022

From racing to freestyle flying, few maneuvers are as well known by drone pilots as the Split-S turn. The Split-S is usually one of the first intermediate maneuvers that pilots get excited to master. It involves segmenting half a roll into half a flip, usually so the drone can go up and over an obstacle, reverse direction, and shoot out underneath it going the opposite direction.
