Body English With Your Drone

An intuitive approach to piloting drones It's hard not to gawk at the aerial tricks drone racing pilots can pull off with just a joystick. But a team of researchers in Switzerland have found another way to pilot drones that's more like the way children play airplane - by turning and tilting their bodies. Toy-sized unmanned aircraft have taken off in recent years and are being used for a variety of activities, including racing, as well as photography of stunning landscapes, and more vitally, search and rescue missions.
