Tips for Flight Safety

We've rounded up some coping tips for flight safety and we'd like to share them with you, including local laws and regulations (flight limit and drone transportation requirements), pre-flight checklist, and environmental considerations.    


Regulations and Policies

1. As laws and regulations regarding drones can vary widely depending on location, please check local policies and regulations before flying: Checking Local Regulations & GEO Zones.

2. To help users fly more responsibly, we’re offering this exclusive guide highlighting the drone laws and battery transportation policies of over 20 popular destinations around the globe. Click Here.


Environmental Consideration

1.  Always fly in open areas and keep your drone within line of sight. For safety reasons, you should never fly above people, animals, or moving vehicles: Flight Safety Guidelines.

2.  Minimize interference by avoiding areas with tall and dense buildings.

3.  The maximum flight altitude of the aircraft is 500 m. For details about maximum flight distance, refer to the Specifications in the official website. Beginner pilots should not be able to fly very far. Click Altitude and Distance Limit to know more.  

Please note that the vision systems cannot work properly in any of the following situations:

1) Flying over extremely dark surfaces, water or transparent surfaces, monochrome surfaces, or surfaces without clear patterns or texture;  

2) Flying over obstacles with small surface areas (e.g., tree branches).


Device Checklist

1.  Make sure that the propellers are mounted properly, and check if the propellers are broken or bent.
2.  Remove the gimbal protector before powering on the drone and make sure that the battery is mounted in place (a click can be heard).
3.  After the device is powered on and connected, check if there are any warnings shown in the app. If yes, follow on-screen instructions and fly the drone after no warnings are detected.
