Piloting Your Drone – Everyone Makes Mistakes

It is easy to make a mistake flying your new quadcopter, as well as fun. However, some mistakes are more costly than others, depending on what happens and what drone you are flying, which is why it pays to be attentive and know what you are doing.

First time flying a drone? How to

All you really need to keep it entertaining rather than annoying is to have a bit of common sense and put a little time into research before taking off.

Keep it legal

Most drones do not come with a set of instructions, but different regiones around the bloge has a complete set of rules to obide by while flying around and above their territory. In the United States, for example, you are no longer required to register your drone with the FAA. The registration is now optional, and recommended, but not imperative. The guidelines, however, are best taking note of.

Patience

As eager as you may be, do not throw caution to the wind; if conditions are not right, do not attempt to fly. Some get fooled by tricky weather conditions, and it’s no shame; it has happened to many of us. Ground conditions may be acceptable, but that may not be true higher up, so take note before you fly.

Obstacle avoidance

Before putting the integrity of your flying machine in the hands of dedicated software. it might be a good idea to stay clear of things like trees and power lines when you take to the sky. The convenient return-to-home (RTH) feature on many new drones has lead to some ridiculous damages, another example to why automatic features are not always the best way to go about doing things.

Controller range and interference

Most drones feature an effective operating range, the straight line distance between the controller and the craft. Stay within the listed range and be prepared to run toward your craft if you slip up. Before having a laugh, you should know that it happens; it actually happens a lot, so prepare for it.

At the end of the day, practice makes perfect and it is worth considering a small device in the beginning. We highly recommend that your first drone be a toy-class this means a small size and a price tag to match.
