Use of Smart phones and tablets - Operators should practice how to link up the drone to their Smartphone and /or tablets of the Drones controller. Onboard a moving vessel is not the time to get acquainted with how the operators Drone works. It is especially important if the operator is using a GoPro camera since the operator will need to learn the WiFi "pairing" procedure so that the Drone Controller and GoPro camera communicate. A Screen Hood is a must have accessory for operating a Drone in bright sunlight! Operators should know how to attach the hood to the device and how to use the touch pad with the hood in place. Operators should consider adding a lanyard attached to the controller - prevents losing the controller overboard and allows the operator to use both hands to work with the Drone during landing.
Holy Stone HS300- Best Camera Drone. A slight upgrade from the HS200 the HS300 is another great drone from Holy Stone. This drone features the nicest camera that you can get from the best drones under 200. The real draw of this drone is the impressive camera capable of creating nice aerial footage.The 5MP camera can record 1080p videos at 30fps. The camera also features a 120-degree wide angle lens for the best panoramic shots. This drone has a decent flight time at 8 to 12 minutes and the drone comes with a backup battery so you do not need to purchase one. Depending on local interference this means that you can fly for between 20 and 30 minutes without needing to recharge anything.
Another reason this is such a great value drone is because it is durable. Even if you run it into trees or expose it to elements such as snow it will keep running. It is great for the hobbyist who wants to learn to fly without worrying about ruining their drone. The wind can be a big issue with this model because it is so light. If the wind is stronger than 5 MPH cross winds might carry this model out of range and you will lose control. One great way to fix potential wind problems is to always reset the gyro before flying. Purchasing the UDI U818A drone is a great value buy. For a small price you get a durable drone with a lot of extra parts and batteries. Everything the hobbyist needs is included with this set.
Use of Propeller Protector Guards - I highly recommend operators make use of propeller guards on their Drone. They are available from most manufacturers or from 3rd party vendors. Most simply snap in place like the guards for the Yuneec Typhoon G while others like the propeller guards for the SYMA series require very small Phillips head screws and screwdriver for attachment. Not only will the guards prevent the Drones propellers from harming guests and crew but they also aid in avoiding the Drone becoming tangled in sailboat standing and running rigging fishing boat outriggers radar arches radio antennas and domes navigation lights and safety rails! Propeller guards are a MUST HAVE accessory!
