Roll, Pitch, and Yaw

Imagine three lines running through an object and intersecting at right angles at the object’s center of gravity. Then :

  • Rotation around the front-to-back axis is called roll.
  • Rotation around the side-to-side axis is called pitch.
  • Rotation around the vertical axis is called yaw.
