Running and piloting drones can be both an excellent way to spend time, and an effective method for solving various very serious problems. And not always it is possible or necessary to be engaged exclusively in the open air, in the street. Sometimes circumstances force the operator to use the capabilities of modern drones in the premises. Many modern models of quadrocopters, for example, Inspire 1, Phantom 4 / Phantom 4 Pro, as well as Mavic Pro from DJI are initially equipped with features that allow them to fly without any problems, even in small rooms. However, when deciding on piloting even the most perfect drone inside the building, you must follow a number of rules and be cautious. For the flight to be safe and successful, we have prepared for you some useful tips. So - How to fly a dji drone?
For example, Phantom 4 can fly indoors, but its parameters and capabilities are not suitable for such tasks. It is best to use a new model from DJI - Mavic Pro. It, it is possible to say, is almost ideal for flights inside buildings, and the most different dimensions. And this applies not only to the size of the drones, but also to the functions that the manufacturer has equipped it with.
Some drones have the ability to remember the previous flight parameters and settings. That is, if you last ran a drone on a street on a windy day, the car will behave inadequately and fly randomly in the room. Therefore, restart the copter ("Reset" button) or use the instructions in your copter's technical description for correct actions.
Many models of drones have a pre-installed by the manufacturer configuration for flights in the room. But if your drone does not have this feature, you can manually reduce the sensitivity of the flight controller to provide better maneuverability near objects and corners in the room.
Always try to delve into the smallest details of the device of your drone (as far as possible). Will he be able to calculate the height using pressure sensors or using a sonar? Does he have the style to move in a certain direction faster than in other directions? Is it comfortable for you to fly using only a remote control panel, or do you need all the controls? Confidence in their ability to cope with a particular model of the drone is vital when flying unmanned aerial vehicles indoors.
It is the easiest to injure a drone during flights in the premises. Even the smallest dent, cut or rupture can cause the drones to function differently, so having spare parts at hand (especially propellers) is always helpful.
Some models of quadrocopters are immediately equipped with special protective covers. For DJI models, you can purchase additional security kits and install them not only for flights in the premises, but in general for the safety of both people and the aircraft themselves.
Your furniture may not suffer from flying drones, but it reduces the space for flights. In addition, within the route of the drone can be a glass with a drink or a vase, which the machine can accidentally drop without even touching their body. As a result, a pile of broken glass or porcelain, a spilled liquid and various side troubles can form on the floor. All this will have to be eliminated.
The Council primarily concerns, of course, the owners of domestic animals. However, even in a seemingly uninhabited shop or in a warehouse, you can meet representatives of various of our smaller brothers. Many pets, especially cats, are naturally curious. Some of their owners make attempts to tease their pet with the help of a flying quadrocopter. True, this mainly applies to owners of nano-drones, but there are cases with the use of larger models. This is by no means the best idea, because as a result of an accident either an animal or a drone can suffer, or even both.
For some, this advice seems superfluous, but unfortunately in recent years there have been quite a lot of accidents involving unmanned aerial vehicles that caused injuries of varying severity, including eye damage. There are cases when children are partially blind due to falling into the eye of the propeller. Such an incident took place in the UK, when, due to loss of control of the copter, the drone crashed into the child and cut the eyes with a propeller. Safety glasses will help to avoid such accidents.
Someone will find this kind of advice strange, because everyone seems to understand that if a drone hits these parts of the room, it either gets damaged or damages the surface. However, the essence is not only this. During the flight of the drone, certain physical laws are associated with the movement of air. If your copter does not have enough space (and air) at the bottom, top or side, this affects the stability of the machine and the stability of its flight (a vacuum effect occurs).
For example, if a drone in flight is too close to the ground (that is, to the floor), then this causes the airflow to sideways. If the car is flying too close to the ceiling, the air can not freely go up (which is natural for the drone), as a result of which the drone "sucks" directly to the ceiling. A similar situation occurs when flying close to a wall: due to interference to the air flow, the drone may be even closer to the wall than you would like, and this is an accident.
If the flights are carried out in a foreign territory or in the territory of joint ownership, it is better to obtain permission from the owner or co-owner in advance.
These are just elements of common sense for operators of drones of all ages and levels of training. When a flying object with propellers appears in a confined space, accidents are quite possible, so you must immediately prepare for trouble and know where the first-aid kit and phone are.
Following at least these simple tips, you can ensure your safety and the safety of others, as well as create all conditions for normal flights.
