When first connecting to R2-D2, you will be entered into Aim mode. Drag to rotate the 3D model of R2-D2 that you see on the app. You will then see your R2-D2 rotate simultaneously. Rotate him until he faces away from you. Once he is completely facing away, stop rotating the on-screen R2-D2 and tap the Drive icon. When you move the joystick, R2-D2 should drive in the direction you want him to go. 

If ever you need to aim him again, just tap the Aim icon and repeat the above.
