How to fly your quadcopter or drone safely when starting out
It is all too tempting to rush out and buy a Phantom 2/3 quadcopter, drone, UAV or similar and fly it anywhere and everywhere taking photos and videos of all you see without really thinking about it.
Reality will soon bite when you either hurt someone, damage their property, cause an accident, invade someone’s privacy or all of the above. The CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) in the UK/Europe and the FAA in the USA are both clamping down on illegal and unauthorised flying and the fines/penalties can be quite severe.
I have written an article outlining basic suggestions when taking up this cool hobby or business that will help to:
- Keep you and others safe
- Follow CAA rules and regulations
- Steer clear of “no fly” zones
- Convince others that this is safe
- Have fun!
