You don’t need to look hard to find stories of injuries or damage to property caused by poor decisions made by drone pilots.
How do you enjoy flying your drone without making the news? The majority of UAV incidents are mainly due to their pilot’s failure to prepare correctly and know their equipment.
There are a few things that absolutely every drone pilot must do when flying a drone for the first time.
Know the laws that regulate UAV use in your country.
Read the manual.
Put the drone in beginner mode and practice flying in a safe area.
There are also a few things that you must do every time you fly, whether it’s your first or thousandth flight.
These are not recommendations to help you get better drone photos or video, it’s an essential checklist that will minimize the chance of an incident that could damage property or cause injury or worse.
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
