Do fly in good weather:
You can minimize a lot of problems by only operating your drone during ideal conditions. Good weather lets you not only fly your drone better but also keep track of it in the air.
Don't fly over people:
This tip is best illustrated by the near miss experienced by skier Marcel Hirscher, who nearly got hit by a drone that was loaded with gear and fell out of the sky.
Don't fly over someone else's house:
Unless you've got permission and a really good reason to do so, you really shouldn't be flying over other people's homes.
Do observe line of sight:
You always want to be within visual range of your drone. This ensures that you know where it is at all times and you don't accidentally ram it into something. It's just basic drone safety.
Don't fly above 400 feet:
The higher you go, the higher the chance that you'll start running into things like airplanes and other aircrafts.
Don't fly over roads:
This especially applies to busy thoroughfares such as freeways and major roads. The last thing you want is a drone dropping from the sky onto a busy expressway and causing a major accident.
Dont drink and fly:
Never fly under the influence of drugs or alcohol. As with all motor vehicles you are responsible. Always follow local regulations.
Watch out for interference:
Fly in open areas ie trees, bridges, and other obsticals pose a potinital treat to your drone and your ablity to fly in control.
Read your drone manual carefully:
Yes, the first thing you may want to do when you get that drone in the mail is take it for a test flight. I's important to have a solid understanding of your drone's settings and what they entail.
