UAV security issues have received much attention, and the United States is actively pursuing drone use guidelines.
UAVs are gradually becoming a major player in the economic arena, creating new forms of industry while also bringing efficient solutions to the mainstream industry.
Commercial drones are currently used in many areas.
In a recent report, the US Federal Aviation Administration expects the number of commercial drones to increase by a factor of 10 in five years, from 42,000 in 2016 to 420,000 in 2021. This means that drones will be the fastest growing segment of the unmanned system market. At present, the US drone market is valued at 3.3 billion, and by 2025 the US market is expected to reach $90 billion.
UAV security issues are of concern to experts
In addition to the growth of the drone industry, the safety of pilots for personal and commercial purposes and the impact on public safety is also a concern for many people. In the United States, two organizations responsible for the safety of drone systems, AUVSI and AMA, have partnered with the US Federal Aviation Administration to host the drone safety website (knowbeforeyoufly.org) for those who own and plan to own drones. People provide educational guidance to help them understand how safe and responsible they are to fly in the United States. Not only that, but anyone who wants to drone in the US is also required to register with the FAA.
10 tips for safe flight of drones:
Are you planning to use drones for entertainment? Do you want it to soon be a novel gift to friends, colleagues or family? Is your business inevitably involved in drones?
Therefore, you must follow these safety tips to make your flight safer and more fun.
Flying within the line of sight
Do not think that you are driving a helicopter or other aircraft. You must make sure that the aircraft is flying within the proper distance from the ground. In this regard, the US Federal Aviation Administration recommends that drone flight altitudes be less than 400 feet.
2. Stay away from the crowd
When using drones, it's best to stay away from people. To be able to do this, the FAA advises users to avoid using drones to fly over people, especially stadiums and sporting events. Similarly, you need to stay away from areas of emergency response, as well as other aircraft and airports.
3. Don't drunk driving / drunk driving
Yes, you are not mistaken, you need to avoid drinking alcohol before driving the drone. As you know, drone control is much simpler than a typical manned aircraft, but the role of alcohol also reduces your ability to maneuver. Therefore, it is also your responsibility to be responsible for your love machine and public safety before flying the drone.
4. Choose the right takeoff environment
The environment you choose for your drone is very important, especially when you are taking off. If you choose to be careless, you may be fatal to the drone. Open areas and areas with the least signal interference are usually the ideal takeoff locations for drones.
5. Fully charge the battery before using the drone
Do not use a faulty battery that has not been charged for a long time (if your battery has been stored for a long time, its performance will be greatly reduced). Before you prepare to fly a drone, make sure the battery is fully charged.
6. Check to make sure the drone is intact
Failure to check if the drone is in good condition can have an adverse effect on your flight. Only when you do this can you determine if your drone is suitable for the current flight conditions. Also, you should check the propeller and compass. For propellers, you must check for any dents, cracks or dirt. The compass determines the direction of the flight, so you must calibrate it to avoid malfunction.
7. First open the remote control
Before you prepare for the flight, do you first turn on the power of the remote control or the power supply of the drone? This is a big mistake if you turn on the drone first. The correct procedure is to ensure that the remote is turned on before turning on the drone. You can turn on the drone after powering the remote.
8. Turn off the drone power first.
After landing, you must turn off the power to the drone. After that, you can turn off the power to the remote. This way, you can ensure that the drone will always be in control.
9. Do not charge immediately after flying.
Love machines are just like your car, and you need careful care. It is recommended that you remove the propeller blades of the drone and store them separately. Then, you'd better keep the drone in place. Finally, your drone should be placed in a dry, cool and non-magnetic place.
10. The drone is safely kept after use
Once the flight is completed, the temperature of the battery is high. So you can't charge the used battery immediately for convenience or forgotten. Therefore, it is best to leave the battery for a while and then charge it after the battery has cooled down.
