altitude Altitude is a distance measurement, usually in the vertical or "up" direction, between a reference point or object.
AMA an abbreviation for Academy of Model Aeronautics, an organization that supports the safe flying of model aircraft for recreational purposes.
arm the last process utilized to enable a drone to fly.
Attitude Mode (Auto-level) A type of flight mode. With Attitude/Auto-level mode, once the sticks are centered, the copter will level itself out.
banking a consistent circular turn in either the clockwise or counterclockwise direction.
bind Bind refers to the process of electronically connecting the transmitter’s signal with the appropriate receiver so they can communicate.
buoyancy an upward force exerted by a fluid (air) that opposes the weight of an immersed object.
CCW the counter-clockwise direction of a rotating propeller.
CW the clockwise direction of a rotating propeller.

FPV (First Person View) FPV refers to the pilot’s ability to see where they’re flying through the UAV’s onboard camera.
GPS Hold a mode returns the quadcopter’s position once the sticks have been centered. The same as attitude mode (auto-level) but using a GPS.
ground effect the effect of added aerodynamic “buoyancy” produced by a buffer of air below the aircraft. It changes the shape and size of the rotating air formed by the spinning blades, effectively making hovering a bit easier when you are closer to the ground.
hovering the process of staying in the same position in the air. This is accomplished by controlling the throttle, or in the case of GPS, it is automatic
ine-of-sight Line-of sight refers to the pilot’s ability to see their quadcopter during flight.
