With the weather getting warmer and more and more people getting out of doors, it is very important to keep safety in mind while out flying your drone. Make sure you go through your flight list to ensure your equipment is in tip top shape and has updated software and firmware.
Try not to fly over people or animals. Be sure to keep your aircraft within line of sight and be vigilant about natural obstacles including birds. Also, be on the lookout for manned aircraft.
These UAV’s are amazing pieces of technology. Through our due diligence we can fly and capture images and videos to enrich our lives and the lives of others. Remember, if you hit a bird or other natural animal you must submit a report to the FAA within 10 days. Here is the link to register your drone. Inside your portfolio you will find the accident report to be filled out sent in. https://faadronezone.faa.gov/#/
