I had an idea to create a website purely informational on drone safety, the do's and dont's. No spam, no blog posts, just the info that people need to know.
- Don't fly over people
- Don't fly over 400ft.
You get the idea.
Fact is there are too many people buying ready to fly quads that have no idea on the risks, or are just reckless pilots. Just look at some of the recent stories on here, the FAA ban on FPV........
In my opinion there is enough man power on here to build a website where people can go and check the general rules and Laws in there country and get flying responsibly.
We could get in contact with some of the big manufacturers and ask them to put a link on their purchase page to get the info where it needs to be.
This needs to be a group effort, we need to get the ball back in our court. I have built basic websites before but im not the best, at the moment it is just an idea.
Who's interested and how can you help?
So there it is, my idea. let see if we can get the ball rolling.
Main Rules to be On webite:
1. Dont fly over Crowded or urban areas
2. Allways fly within visual line of sight (VLOS)
3. Dont Fly above 400ft. or 120Meters, normal air traffic starts at 500ft.
4. Dont fly near airports, flying withing 8km or 5 miles of an airport is extremely dangerous.
