Always Fly Safe
Whether you are a pro or a beginner, there are drone flying rules that you MUST FOLLOW. These rules keep you and others safe, and protect you from getting penalized for breaking Govt. regulations.
DRONE FLYING RULE 1
Totally avoid flying near airports. This is dangerous at so many levels that it’s scary. No matter what, do not fly your drone near an airport. Lives and property can be lost, and you can face jail time.
DRONE FLYING RULE 2
Keep your drone below 120 meters or 400 feet. Some of the drones have built in height regulators, but you have to be conscious about this yourself.
DRONE FLYING RULE 3
Keep your eyes on the drone at all times and keep them at a safe distance from people. The suggested distance is 50 meters or 150 feet from people and property. This is not only important for overall safety, but you should anyways have your drone in sight at all times. I am sure you have heard of drone flyaways, where they go out of radio control reach, and well vanish into the skies.
DRONE FLYING RULE 4
There are Govt. Restricted No Fly zones in different places. Find out about all such no fly zones in your locality, before you go on a drone flying spree. Some of the top drones have these no fly zones hardwired into them through GPS but you need to be aware. A very short list of possible places to avoid are – military zones, aircraft flying zones, Govt. buildings, power/utility stations, etc.
