Flight Time - consider flight time and battery capability. Small Drones may have less then 10 minutes flight time while bigger Drones fly up to 25 minutes. For casual videos 10 minutes flight time may be enough however if you plan to use the Drone to locate schools of fish or remote moorings then consider purchasing a Drone with longer flight times. Camera- Many Drones come equipped with their own camera while others are able to make use of external cameras like a Gopro or DSLR. Included cameras range from low resolution with images stored on a memory card while others are capable of 4K resolution (broadcast quality) and relaying live images via WIFI to a smart phone tablet or controller LCD screens. External cameras generally offer the owner more options and higher resolutions but may not be fully integrated with the included controller system. An example is the Yuneec Typhoon G set up to use the GoPro Hero3 or 4 4K cameras. This is a great set up capable of unusually stable video in most windy conditions. However while the operator can see what the camera sees on the Typhoon controller LCD screen the controller is not able to control any of the features of the GoPro camera- and the operator needs to activate the video record button on the GoPro prior to taking off and then can only shut off video recording after the Drone is retrieved. Integrated cameras usually can be controlled from the controller.
Drone rentals is becoming a common practice nowadays for people wishing to cash in on the UAV business or just looking to have fun. However not everyone can afford to buy a sophisticated high-tech flying machine that comes with a horde of useful and attractive features. Such a drone is available for somewhere around $3000 or even more depending on the functionality it offers and the overall design. The best way to benefit from such a machine is to rent it from reputable firms that are now offering this facility to their customers located worldwide. There is usually a fee associated with hourly or daily usage of a drone and it is very much affordable. However since its a very delicate machine you have to take extra care of it while flying or using it. Moreover before you can rent out a drone for personal or commercial use you have to agree to a drone rental lease agreement. This is to ensure that if some parts are damaged or lost during drone flying or if repairing is required the Lessor does not face major losses. A deposit of up to $1500 is usually required as security which is refundable and returned to the Lessee once he or she returns the drone.
Safe Use of a Drone aboard - A Drone is a robot that uses high powered motors to turn propellers - propellers that are capable of significant harm in the event that the Drone makes contact with the operator or guests aboard. Operators must be aware of who is near the Drone both taking off and landing. Additionally operators must avoid hitting radar arches outriggers flags fly bridges and other yacht and ship structures. Operators must be sure to plan how they will use the Drone - from the bow from the stern from an open bridge or bridge top. Safe Storage of A Drone Aboard - I highly recommend that a padded soft or hard case be used to transport and store a Drone aboard a yacht boat or ship. Bringing a Drone aboard a yacht boat or ship without storage protection is asking for damage to happen.
