But you need to take care of a few things before you fly a drone. If you are new to flying drones, there's so much you need to know and learn before you begin.
This article will help you save a lot of time and energy. Hopefully, it will help you prevent some frustrations and accidents while flying a drone.
Let's get started!
Following the basic legal rules should never go out of fashion. It's all fun flying a drone as a hobby but getting your drone licensed is as important as getting any vehicle licensed. Following the rules gives you a lot more freedom and violating the rules may lead to more strict laws. There is a good thing about getting your drone licensed, you can make money flying the drone commercially. You can work as a drone photographer or videographer as a licensed drone pilot. Also, make sure you know the basics of flying the drone before you start flying. Try watching a YouTube video and know the basics first.
The urge to fly your drone to a new place is very usual but you should always check for the restrictions. Just after you get a new drone, you may feel excited to photograph a new place. Before you head to a new location, make sure you check the restrictions on a drone app. So, when you plan a road trip, make a note to check for the restrictions. This way you know where you can fly and where you can't. Use an app to check the restrictions at a specific location or quickly google search at a local area.
The surface that you choose to fly your drone should be dry and you should also operate it in proper weather conditions. Also, drones cannot be flown within five miles of an airport without notifying the airport authority. Plan your takeoff/ landing place and be sure to have a flat surface to start. Have a backup plan and learn to launch from your camera backup.
This one is quite an obvious one because everyone brings a cheaper version first to try and test. Drones tend to crash and repairing a cheaper drone will cost you less and you can always go for a nicer version when you get better at flying. As a beginner, you will crash your drone multiple times and there's no point in investing dollars on a brand-new drone. You anyway going to crash it until you get better at flying your drone.
Once you get comfortable with flying drones and have built your skills, you start flying in a more challenging situation. This can lead to unexpected drone behaviour so it is helpful to have a complex understanding of drones. This complex understanding will help you sense if you can sense the obstacles and how you can make an emergency stop. Mastering complex controls will help you minimize accidents and drone crashes.
