    OK, I get how a quad flies. I understand up and down. Banking 360 degrees. But how in the world does it turn/spin? I'm thinking something to do with the apposing rotation of the props.

    Curious.

    I think it does it by increasing rpm on the two props going clockwise or the two going counter-clockwise depending on which way it wants to spin. It's effectively using uneven torque between the counter-rotating pairs.

    I think.

    It's either that, or witchcraft... ;)

    That's it exactly. RPM differences between the CW and CCW motors create a torque imbalance which directly results in yaw. If the CW motors are running faster, the yaw will be CCW, and vice-versa.

    Pull_Up is correct, it's done with spells and that little stick you think is an antenna is really a wand that controls the RotoPellers.

    Sort of what I thought. Sure would like to see an animation of this in slow motion.

    Ummm. No I have done a lot of thinking and pixies are definatly the only reason my Phantom can fly. I hear every time a phantom takes a photo a pixie gets its wings.

    Of course it's pixies.

    If they're unhappy for whatever reason (you don't care enough to read their manuals, they think their owner is a bad person, scared of power towers, etc) they will just fly back to their homeland and take their phantoms with them.
