Droneblog Explains Why Drones Have Red Lights #drone #droneday
If you’ve ever found yourself wondering about the significance of a drone’s red lights you’ll want to read through this article from Droneblog:
You may have noticed red lights on some of the outside panels of your drone (or on one out at the park), and wondered what they signify. Drones are complex pieces of equipment, and have a lot of settings and modes that can be used for different uses, so the lights that you can see displayed on the drone hold quite a bit of significant information for users. So, what do the red lights on a drone mean?
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.
