    Maintain visual sight of the drone at all times.Stay below 400 feet.Don’t fly over people.Don’t fly at night.

  • Plan your flight path to allow for obstacle avoidance if the drone automatically returns home at any time.

  • Ensure your flight path:

    Does not include areas with strong electromagnetic interference, such as a cellular antenna or microwave dish.

    Does not include a no-fly zone. Use an app like the FAA’s B4UFLY or a web source like AirMap to identify them: https://app.airmap.io/.
