Safe Flying

Information about flying the drone safely

Safe flying is fun flying. Our aerial cameras have special built-in safety features to protect you and others. Below you will find helpful tips and information on the product safety features and useful resources to help you get started with the first steps with our drones. Always fly safely, be respectful of the privacy of others, and have fun!

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!
