Working in the UK and flying drones we monitor the weather each day. We’re regularly asked what conditions our machines are capable of.
Wind – Anything below 15mph we’re good to fly. Wind is the biggest problem for remotely piloted aircraft (drones) and in most situations the wind predictions are very accurate 48hours in advance giving us plenty of time to re-shedule.
Rain – Our machines like all camera drones use electric motors therefore we’re unable to fly in the rain.
Cloud – Cloud isn’t a problem it has it’s pro’s and con’s but this isn’t anything to worry about.
Take off and landing – Preferably a location with good visibility of the subject and entrance points. A flat surface for take off is preferred.
