Drone photography is an exciting hobby and even an exciting career path for some freelancers. Aerial photography is a whole new perspective, and they give you the freedom to capture vivid, surreal images from impossible angles.
Whether you're just looking to snap aerial photos of a weekend hike with friends or work as a building surveyor - knowing the dos and don'ts of drone photography will improve your overall flying experience.
Understanding the Legal Requirements for Drone Photography The most important factor to consider before engaging in any drone-related activity is knowing the legal requirements (and restrictions) in your state or city. The Autel Nano series is a consumer drone that weighs less than 250g and can be flown without registration in the US. At the same time, Autel drones do not have the function of geo-fencing. For the no-fly zone, the driver needs to decide whether to continue flying.
As with any aircraft, the weather and surrounding area can affect flight success. It is important to fully understand where and when you will be flying into to avoid crashes or unnecessary accidents.
Drones are expensive devices - do not fly in the rain or near bodies of water unless they are waterproof or capable of flying close to the surface; be sure to check the wind direction before taking off! High wind conditions can affect the stability of your drone in the air and your safety.
Be aware of your surroundings and become familiar with your surroundings. Make sure you know where you are in case of an emergency or drone failure. Autel's image transmission distance can reach 10km and above, so please fly within the visual range of the remote control.
Most importantly, keep in mind the height of buildings, wires, and tree lines that you will be flying around, as these factors can affect your maneuverability (or lack thereof) in the air. The Autel EVO drone basically has a three-way obstacle avoidance function, which will ensure your flight safety.
Use a drone equipped with safety and protection features.
Not all drones are the same - if you use a drone for photography, you probably have a model with a high-end camera. It's better to use a drone with a gimbal and camera, instead of buying a pendant gimbal separately, you'll want features that minimize the risk of losing or crashing your device.
Drone photography is becoming more and more popular; it is one of many areas where drones are modernized. By following these tips, you'll capture incredible images and have a hassle-free flying experience.
