Drone Safety

I love drones, and have flown them for longer than I've been married, and I've been married for a long, long time. However, something I've become aware of through decades of R/C flight is that there are a number of basic elements of best practices that a lot of pilots simply aren't aware of. Or to put it another way, there is a lot I've learned about drones over the years that I'd like to share with you; that's why I started this blog.

This is a collection of my thoughts on the matter, in terms of how to fly drones safely without getting arrested, assaulted, charged, or thrown behind bars. We want to remember to be role models of responsible drone use, so we don't end up ruining a great hobby and commercial tool for everyone. So here is a growing collection of articles I'm writing on general information every drone pilot should know before taking to the skies.
