With the advancement of technology, drones are becoming a part of our life. At one point in time, telephones existed only in the form of landlines and were not portable. However, since the time it has become portable, it is difficult to imagine a person travelling without carrying his mobile phone. The same has been the case with drones as well. Since the advent of portable technology, drone lovers have become so obsessed that it is difficult for them to visit a place without that.
Drones become a piece of attention wherever they are flown and this makes their maintenance in foreign land very difficult. It is really important to keep some precautions in mind while carrying your drone. Let us have a look at some tips which must be kept in mind while traveling with a drone.
1. Carry a Small Repair Kit for Emergencies
In case the drone gets a bit disturbed or malfunctions because of some minute problems while you are away from home and carrying your drone, you should be well equipped with instruments to repair it. So, make sure you always carry a small repair kit having all the necessary equipment while you are on the go.
2. Make Sure the Parts Are Well Placed and Functioning
Before flying a drone at an unknown place, you should make sure all the parts are well placed, tightened and functioning before you begin the flight. The last thing you want in the world is your drone being disintegrated while it is in air. Considering that you are in a fairly unknown place, it becomes very difficult to arrange all the parts once it gets disintegrated.
So, make sure that all the parts are well aligned and every equipment is functioning well before your journey starts.
3. Restrict the Use of Drones
Keeping in mind the obstacles that might have to be faced while you are away, make sure you use the instrument efficiently and in a well-planned manner. Try to resist long spells and avoid places that are overcrowded or have rough terrain. You never want to lose your drone among a crowd of people or at a place where finding it becomes impossible.
Try to restrict the use of drones over military areas and near the airports.
4. Place It Inward and Use the Drone Bag As the Main Carrier Backpack
Always use the drone bag as your main carrier bag so that there is no point in the journey when it gets away from you. Also, try to place it towards the inward side of your luggage so that it won’t be handled improperly or even taken out easily by unknown people. If you are a traveler like me who always likes to carry a guitar while on a journey, you know what I am talking about.
5. Check the Laws of the Place That You Are Visiting
Always make sure you are within the laws of the place while using your drone. The last thing you want is your drone to be taken away and facing a legal lawsuit. So, make sure what the laws of the land are and abide by the laws for smooth passage.
6. Be Equipped With Extra Propellers
Propellers are the ones that are susceptible to be damaged. So, carry an extra pair with yourself so that you can use it in the time of need. Don’t turn into a fool without the most important part of the drone.
7. Keep Extra Batteries and Keep Them Safe
Batteries are seen to run out much faster while you are away from home. So, you should keep extra batteries but keep them away from fire and other dangers.
