Do not fly:

  • Over people
    • Beyond visual line of sight
    • Above 400 feet
    • Near first-responder activity
    • Near other drone
  • Use a mobile app like the FAA’s B4UFLY or a web source like AirMap or the map at Know Before You Fly to identify no-fly zones before you head out:, If the Drone Status Indicator displays solid red you are in a no-fly zone and you will not be able to fly.
  • Allow for obstacle avoidance if your drone automatically returns home at any time. The drones Return to Launch mode cannot see obstacles in front of or above the drone, like a tree or overhang.
  • Do not fly in rain, snow, high winds, or in severely polluted or dusty environments. Same if you’re distracted, tired, or under the influence.
  • Use caution in cold environments (less than 40° F / 5° C). Cold weather reduces the charge of the lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries in your phone, controller, and drone. Severely cold environments may damage a Li-ion battery. A temperature of about 68° F / 20° C) is optimum for maximum drone performance.
