    Hey guys.

    Had my PV2 for almost 2 days already. Got to thank the forum, 4 great flights. Invaluable help.

    Never flew an RC aero before so I have a question about turning the quads. This may seem dumb but all my turns are at right or left 90 degree turns. Can't seem to figure how to make a nice arced turn. My figure 8 practice isn't pretty. lol. More like putting two rectangles together if you know what I mean. Is their some 2 stick combinations used for general turns to give a nice arc to the turns? Thanks.

    X2.

    It's the same way you get to Carnegie Hall. Practice, practice, practice…..

    You will want to maintain forward movement with the right stick while turning left or right with the left stick.

    Get proficient with your 90 degree boxes first and get comfortable with nose-in and nose-out flying first.

    Oh, and don't forget to watch your altitude, too! :- p

    Yes, it will take practice. That's why I don't shoot videos.

    If you're moving the sticks by resting your thumb on the top of them, try instead pinching them near the base.
