2) Headless mode for beginners
It comes with headless mode , thus beginners may just concentrate on the photography or vid taking, without fussing over the direction of the drone.
Headless mode : It means that the quadcopter's direction of flight seen from your viewpoint follows the controls directly, no matter in which direction the quadcopter is pointing. So if you press the stick on the RX to the left the quadcopter will fly to the left from your viewpoint. Without headless mode the quadcopter would fly to the direction which is on the left side of the quadcopter, so if the quadcopter is pointing towards you it would fly to the right.
