Flying best practices

Is your drone ready to fly? A number of checks must be made before take-off.

 



 

  • Check the weather: to fly your drone safely, choose a day when the wind is light and it is not raining.

     

  • To check if the weather is good for flying, download the UAV Forecast app that uses precise calculations to advise you on whether it is safe to fly your drone.

  • Check that your smartphone/tablet and your drone have enough battery life for the duration of the flight.

     

  • Also check that your smartphone/tablet has enough memory to store the videos and photos you are planning to take during the flight.



 

DURING THE FLIGHT

 

Let's go for take-off! Here are some tips for ensuring a pleasant flight with your drone.

 

  • If you are a beginner, choose automatic flying as this will activate all the flight control options.

     

  • Set yourself an objective: whether you are training to take off or capturing a specific image, give your flight an objective.

     

  • To get some inspiration regarding potential photos or videos, do not hesitate to browse Google Maps and have a walk around the area: lakes, mountains, dunes, islands, etc. there is no lack of beautiful photo opportunities as long as you do not fly over water!

     

  • If you decide to invert the position of your drone (i.e. to make it face you on take-off), remember to reverse all the horizontal controls as well! Flying "inverted" is reserved for our most experienced pilots.





 

TAKING BEAUTIFUL PICTURES AND VIDEOS

 

Everyone loves capturing great pictures and breathtaking videos with their drone! Feel free to read our suggestions to improve your results.

 

  • Practice flying your drone very smoothly in order to shoot great photos and videos that you can show to your friends and family: if you can fly without causing vibrations, the final result will be perfect!  

     

  • The framing is very important too: you will get better results by taking great care in this area. Follow our advice: tilt the camera slightly forward to reduce the space occupied by the sky.

FLYING YOUR DRONE IN COLD WEATHER

 

Many drone owners want to know more about flying their drone in cold weather. Here is some advice and suggestions on handling this situation.

 

  • Fully charge your battery. This will ensure that it has a higher voltage. We recommend that the battery of your drone be charged to at least 90% in order to take-off.

 

  • Plan for a shorter flight time to preserve your battery as much as possible.

     

  • Preheat your batteries or charge them for a few minutes before taking off.

     

  • Store your batteries in a warm place!
