Here’s what I recommend to any new or inexperienced drone pilot about flying, to protect your drone, the people, and places you’ll be filming. You need to be able to use the drone controls without having to think about them, like riding a bike. Don’t Fly IndoorsDrones are hard enough to fly outdoors. Birds – As a general rule, birds don’t bother things above them. Most drone apps have a directional arrow showing you which way the drone is facing relative to you.
