Drones are one of the fashion gifts for several years, and many of them are used for recreational, non-professional purposes. However, driving a drone without experience and without knowing the current regulations can cause more than one accident, according to Portaltic.
The company specialized in technological toys, Juguetrónica, collects some of the key points that appear in the legislation that regulates the recreational use of drones, which came into force in 2017, and that help to use them safely.
One of the most important safety measures to take during the flight of a drone is that the device must always be within the visual range of the pilot. The distances can vary depending on whether the space is urban or not, being between 50 and 120 meters high.
However, some places have special measures, such as airports or airfields, where you can not fly a drone within eight kilometers of them. It is recommended that the user consult the prohibited, dangerous or restricted areas in Icarus RPA.
If the drones have a camera, and taking into account the legislation on data protection, it is necessary to have the permission of the people who appear in the images to upload them to the Internet or social networks.
In case of accident, the damage caused will always be the fault of the pilot, and if this is a minor, it must always be accompanied by a responsible person. It is recommended to start with smaller recreational drones, such as the Smartdrone BT, which is operated with the 'smartphone', or the Mini Skywalker Evolution, a flying sphere that is impact-proof.
