Drone recover Strategies for Windy Conditions - Drones are difficult if not impossible to safely land in windy conditions. In most cases the operator either hits the "home" button and hopes for the best. Another technique is to line up the Drone overhead and "drop the Drone out of the sky" hoping it will land on the deck or cockpit. An alternative technique is for the operator to "hover" the Drone within the operators reach and then the operator simply grab the landing gear and bring the Drone down. The operator should be sure to wear gloves as the operator could easily get a finger cut from the propellers.
Holy Stone HS300- Best Camera Drone. A slight upgrade from the HS200 the HS300 is another great drone from Holy Stone. This drone features the nicest camera that you can get from the best drones under 200. The real draw of this drone is the impressive camera capable of creating nice aerial footage.The 5MP camera can record 1080p videos at 30fps. The camera also features a 120-degree wide angle lens for the best panoramic shots. This drone has a decent flight time at 8 to 12 minutes and the drone comes with a backup battery so you do not need to purchase one. Depending on local interference this means that you can fly for between 20 and 30 minutes without needing to recharge anything.
There are a number of issues that should be considered when selecting a Drone for this environment: DJI and Yuneec make a number of Drones capable of use in this environment. The Splash Drone is waterproof and makes a great Drone for this environment. GoPro and DJI have just introduced small new models that "fold" and fit in small backpacks and are capable of flying for 20+ minutes in 20+ knots of wind! Size - consider how and where you will store your Drone aboard your yacht - on a bunk in a storage locker in the cockpit. The Drone should be stored in a safe location where guests and crew will not drop items on the Drone or knock or kick the Drone.
