Modern Drones are incredible machines that are capable of doing amazing things in the marine and yachting environment. They can be used to spot schools of fish locate a mooring or open area in a marina to drop anchor locate an assigned slip preview an unspoiled beach or island locate items or persons that dropped overboard capture great video and still photos of the boat either at anchor or underway or even drop safety or other equipment to remote locations. However Drones need to he handled differently when used in the terrestrial or land use environments in addition to specific models that are better suited for the marina and yachting environments.
The manual gives a great explanation of how to use this drone. Reading it will teach you how to sync the drone with the controller how to use the controls and how to sync the controller to your phone or headset. All of this is easy to do with the detailed instructions DBPOWER. One negative of this recreational drone is the camera quality. Capturing visuals at only 0.3MP you cannot expect high-quality images. Still you can enjoy seeing what your drone sees despite it not being the best among drones with camera options. Easy-to-control and easy-to-fly this drone is great for those who want to try out the hobby of drone flying without spending a lot of money. For recreational purposes this drone has everything you need.
Some drones are known as FPV Drones. This means that you have FPV or first person view while controlling them. FPV drones may show you FPV on the controller or you may be able to experience this view via an app. Either way you get the real cockpit experience along with your drone. If you get a non-FPV drone you wont have a first person view. You wont be able to see what the drone is seeing in real time since there is no display. Personal preference dictates whether or not you should look for an FPV drone. However many beginner and intermediate drone pilots find FPV to be the most exciting part of flying.
Maintenance of Your Drone While Aboard - Be sure to include a small tool kit with tools for use on a Drone: small pliers and screw drivers small Allen wench set spare screws small wrench set nuts and propeller locks propeller removal tool small pocket knife zip ties tape terminal cleaning spray silicon spray to protect your Drone from salt water and salt air etc. A large fresh water spray bottle will be needed to wash off salt water in the event your Drone goes swimming! Be sure to add spare propellers - lots of them - spare landing feet spare CHARGED batteries 12V AND 110V battery battery connect cables spare controller batteries and/or controller charger and spare propeller guards. Drone Limits While Piloting a Drone Over Water - The operator MUST be aware of their battery use and flying time of their Drone. Most controllers show the battery charge level of the Drone. At 50% level I highly recommend that the operator initiate the return process for retrieving the Drone or the Drone may go for a swim! Additionally the operator should attach a stopwatch to the controller so that the operator is aware of the flight time.
