It's for this reason that the Dronecode was first developed. It's a set of rules laid out to ensure safe, responsible use of drones to maintain the UK's excellent air safety record. Over the last few months we've been conducting research into the first Code to see how well it has been adopted and recognised and on the back of this, we've created a new version to further ensure safety remains as important as fun.
None of this potential will be possible however, if early adopters risk creating a negative perception of the devices through irresponsible and dangerous use. We need to instil a sense of responsibility, ownership, and safe usage without losing the fun element for those flying drones as a hobby.
The world's largest civilian drone manufacturer is responding to an increasing tide of regulation as countries consider legislation to control the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.
