Hi All I am new owner of a drone and was wondering if you all have a second person with you when you are flying your drone, even when you still leaning to fly it.
Hi @Carlos1664 / Carl
You don’t mention whether you are flying FPV drones or camera drones (of the DJI/similar variety.
And welcome to GADC.
The drone I have has a camera, its a Holy stone
I did when I first started flying, was fortunate to learn within a group where someone was always watching what was going on, handy for those crashes with no buzzer!
If you wear goggles to fly the drone through the camera’s lens, yes you always need someone.
If you have a remote connected to your phone, no you don’t but while you are learning, a 2nd pair of eyes could be good because you’ll be looking at the screen a lot getting familiar with it. They don’t need to be a drone flyer themselves but someone sensible enough to realise you’re heading for a tree, cliff, people, etc and let you know.
