These Weather, You Must Pay Special Attention Before Taking Off!

- Oct 10, 2017-

A cold autumn rain, the typhoon is coming.

Unpredictable weather

I want to fly, and I have to do some research in the weather.

Rainfall, snow, hail

It is obvious that drones are not suitable for flying in snow, snow and ice. So when you are ready to take off, there are only sporadic raindrops and you can't take off. If you encounter rainy weather during the flight, you should also pay attention to returning to protect the drone, and when the weather turns fine, take off again.

Check the weather forecast before you travel, pay attention to the probability of precipitation and the intensity of precipitation.

High or low temperature weather

High or low temperature weather will affect some functional components of the drone, resulting in reduced flight efficiency and impact flight stability.

In hot weather, avoid flying for too long, and the drone should be fully rested and cooled during the two flights. Because the motor of the drone is running with lift, it will also generate a lot of heat. The motor is very easy to overheat, and in some extreme cases it may even melt some parts and cables.

In cold weather, avoid flying time is too long, pay close attention to the battery situation during the flight. Because low temperatures will reduce the efficiency of the battery, the battery life will decrease.

Cloud

The current elegance of wearing aerial photography is amazing. However, if the clouds are too thick, we cannot monitor the movement of the drone in real time, which is dangerous. Therefore, we must constantly observe the movement of the drone and find that when the trace is relatively vague, we must pay attention to returning to ensure flight safety.
