Flying best practices

"Many drone owners want to know more about flying their drone in cold weather. Here are some tips and suggestions if this should apply to you.

  • Charge your battery completely. This will ensure that it has a higher voltage. We recommend that the battery of your drone be charged to 100% in order to take-off. ANAFI's smart battery gives the battery charge level at all times, whether it is charging or not, when you press the ON/OFF button.
  • In cold weather, we recommend that you fly your drone particularly smoothly, without seeking to complete difficult maneuvers and sudden movements.
  • Plan for a shorter flight time to preserve your battery as much as possible.
  • Preheat your batteries or charge them for a few minutes before taking off.
  • Store your batteries in a warm place!"
Or hover in place for a minute before proceeding with your flight....



PS, thanks for the altitude edit, set some records guys, responsibly ofc. Let's hope Parrot doesn't read this board? And if they do, perhaps they can just... let it be?

Please? How can they be held liable for the actions of their customers anyway?
The Mavic already goes to 500 meters am I right?

It's good for competition...

You can add this point.
Place your drone without battery outside in a dry place to precold it (1/2 hour before flight ) to prevent fogging of the lense.
