RECREATIONAL DRONE RULES | What you NEED to know to legally fly your drone

Getting a drone is exciting but flying it – for the first several times – is scary! Well, take some of the stress out of the experience by learning what you need to do legally, first!

Depending on which drone you get you may need to register it, you will need to take the TRUST test and if you intend on flying the drone for money (commercially) additional tests will be required. But that’s not all, you need to know the FAA rules regarding height restrictions, where you can fly the drone and the manner in which you fly this little electronic device. This video covers all of this BUT in a much shorter video than other examples. I thought, let’s cut out the fat and get right down to business so you can get your drone out flying, faster.

    All good info but recreational and Part 107 is not based on flying commercially. Which implies money. It is based on intent. If the intent is to help a friend check the roof. That falls under Part 107 despite the lack of money exchanged.

    Worthwhile mentioning to understand the rules. Part 107 is the totality of the rules governing drone flying. If one breaks a rule for recreational flying then they fall within the Part 107 rules. No license and now becomes a bit more serious. Not to scare. If we all follow the rules the hobby will expand and get better.

    Also recommended to carry Circular 91-57B in place of a CBO document.

    Not required but highly recommended. Carry a flight and maintenance log.
