Safe Use of a Drone aboard - A Drone is a robot that uses high powered motors to turn propellers - propellers that are capable of significant harm in the event that the Drone makes contact with the operator or guests aboard. Operators must be aware of who is near the Drone both taking off and landing. Additionally operators must avoid hitting radar arches outriggers flags fly bridges and other yacht and ship structures. Operators must be sure to plan how they will use the Drone - from the bow from the stern from an open bridge or bridge top. Safe Storage of A Drone Aboard - I highly recommend that a padded soft or hard case be used to transport and store a Drone aboard a yacht boat or ship. Bringing a Drone aboard a yacht boat or ship without storage protection is asking for damage to happen.
The HS300 is larger and heavier than other drones under 200. This weight helps the drone compete with stronger winds and stand up to damage. Some of that weight is in the propeller guards and landing gear which help the durability. Despite its nice camera this drone does not offer FPV (first person view). You cannot see what your drone is seeing which can make filming hard. It is however possible to swap the camera out for one with WiFi capabilities to fix this issue if you need FPV. If you are on a tight budget and want to create cool aerial shots this is the drone for you. The impressive camera and reliable performance are all the beginner drone photographer needs to get started.
Some drones are known as FPV Drones. This means that you have FPV or first person view while controlling them. FPV drones may show you FPV on the controller or you may be able to experience this view via an app. Either way you get the real cockpit experience along with your drone. If you get a non-FPV drone you wont have a first person view. You wont be able to see what the drone is seeing in real time since there is no display. Personal preference dictates whether or not you should look for an FPV drone. However many beginner and intermediate drone pilots find FPV to be the most exciting part of flying.
