"More quadcopter flight tutorials at http://quadcopter101.blogspot.com/2013/10/quadcopter-flying-tutorial-3-turning.html One way to turn a quadcopter is to use rudder control alone while maintaining a forward pitch and velocity. However, this method is NOT very efficient for turning. Try it and youll see that making a turn can take quite a bit of time and distance. The quadcopter will tend to slide outward from the turn, similar to trying to turn a car on a frozen skating rink. Although inefficient, it is the preferred way to turn when taking aerial video as the banking angle changes are minimal. Thus resulting video will not be tilted. http://quadcopter101.blogspot.com teaching beginners the basics of flying quadcopters."
