Axis



Normal Axis
The Normal Axis allows the plane to Yaw. Yaw means the plane moves left to right but still being horizontal. It's like puttting a rubber on a table and spinning it.
 
Longitudinal Axis
The Longitudinal Axis allows the plane to Roll. It's like string going through the middle of the plane, front to the back. Rolling means the plane is still horizontal, but the body rotates diagonally. This helps the plane turn.
 
Lateral Axis
The Lateral Axis allows the plane to Pitch. Pitch is where the plane does move up and down, but in a diagonal motion.
