Yuneec drones are pre-programmed to prevent flying in national aviation authority designated no-fly zones or at heights above 122 m. There are lots of great places to fly, but there are some restrictions. Make sure that you are aware of local regulations and permits before you fly! Always choose a wide-open area for every flight, well away from people and property. Never fly directly over people or animals!
Inspect your aircraft
Inspect your drone for damage and wear to ensure that it is ready for flight.
Make sure batteries are charged to get the most out of every session. Batteries typically take two hours for a complete charge, so plan ahead to make sure the flight is trouble-free.
Install propellers marked ‘A’ or ‘B’ on the corresponding rotors marked ‘A’ or ‘B’.
Always turn the controller on and allow it to boot up before turning the drone on, and always turn the drone off before turning off the controller.
Maintain a distance from the aircraft of at least 8 m at take-off and landing.
Maintain visual contact
Maintain visual contact with the aircraft at all times to ensure you keep control over your drone.
Make sure that you are aware of local regulations and permits before you fly!
Always in control
Keep your hands on the flight controls to ensure controlled flight.
No drugs or alcohol
Do not fly under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Respect the privacy of others
Be respectful of the private property and spheres of privacy of others.
