I have a suggestion for a new controller scheme that could be used for all drone models. The controller stick modes currently are defined in reference to the orientation of the drone (e.g. move drone right or forward). However, there are many use cases when the drone is being rotated on its yaw axis, so that ‘left’ or ‘forward’ become varying directions in the real world.

Instead, we can define the controller stick settings with reference to a fixed coordinate system, such as the cardinal directions. In this scheme, pushing forward on the right stick could mean moving the drone north, regardless of which direction the nose was pointing. This fixed coordinate system doesn’t have to be the cardinal directions; the pilot could define a coordinate system that’s most convenient for their flight (e.g. forward on right stick moves drone in direction of 20 degrees from north).

This scheme would allow pilots to use the yaw axis purely to position the camera during motion shots, without having to worry about adjusting their other stick movements to account for changing nose direction. This would enable a new class of motion shots for the consumer drones, and seems feasible to implement using the drone’s GPS system.
