Safe drone flying features

When embarking on a drone adventure, the term "safety features" may seem complicated. See which aspects of the drone to pay attention to, as they can determine whether your flying experience will be successful, especially if you are a novice pilot. Today's drones are equipped with more and more automatic modes that, in a sense, work "on their own thinking," providing protection against accidents and making flying much easier.

What features make a drone safe?

When looking for the perfect drone, it's worth noting a few key features that can make flying and controlling the device significantly easier.

  1. Solid build quality

    The build quality of the drone is crucial to its durability. Avoid counterfeit products that may stop working or be unreliable. When you choose a drone from a proven manufacturer, you can be sure that you are getting a product that will serve you for a longer period of time. Drones equipped with GPS, gyroscope and accelerometer are precisely oriented in space, making their control more precise, intuitive and safe.
  2. Obstacle avoidance sensors

    Drones equipped with advanced sensors can detect obstacles in their path and warn of their presence, significantly increasing flight safety. This is especially useful when the drone's camera is facing forward to avoid collisions when reversing. This is an extremely useful feature for beginners as well as like advanced drone pilots.
  3. Automatic stopping of propellers

    Automatic propeller stop function in the event of a collision provides additional protection against damage to the drone and prevents overheating of the motors. Most reputable manufacturers, such as DJI, equip their drones with this feature.
  4. Return to start point (RTH)

    Return to takeoff point (RTH) function automatically redirects the drone back to the takeoff point if the controller signal is lost or the battery is low. This is extremely useful in situations where the drone disappears from sight or when you need a quick return.
  5. Auto flight mode

    Some drones offer automatic flight modes, such as Quickshots or MasterShots, which allow you to take spectacular shots without the need for advanced knowledge in flying a drone. Object tracking features such as ActiveTrack, allow the drone to track and record objects automatically, making it even easier to create professional footage.
  6. Pilot assistance system

    Pilot assistance systems, such as APAS, are able to detect other drones on the flight path and warn of possible collisions. This allows the pilot to consciously avoid dangerous situations in the air.
  7. Availability of accessories and spare parts

    When choosing a drone, it is worth checking the availability of accessories and spare parts. If necessary, you can easily replenish or repair damaged components, which prolongs the life of the device.

By meeting the above criteria, you can be sure to make a better choice when buying a drone.
