I asked my son that question because he has one. I know his took some beautiful Arial photos up here. He has a DJI Phantom 3. He said to be sure it has GPS. It will hold itself in place and remember where it took off so that if it gets disconnected it will return and land in that spot. One other thing to know is that there are places that you are not allowed to fly them. I was very surprised by that. We went to Pine Lake in the winter and we were told by the Park Ranger that it is not allowed there. He said there are several places they are not allowed.

For everyone out there operating or considering operating a UAS (aka drone), please follow the regulations that have been established by industry and the FAA. As drone usage is expected to increase exponentially in the coming years, it is imperative that everyone understands operating procedures so that everyone in the National Air Space can operate safely. Drone operators are required to register your drone, and encouraged to create a notice that advises other pilots when and where you will be operating (DRONETAM). Here is a link that can help you get started and understand the procedures to follow.

Happy Flying
