Another technique is to attach a thin weighted line to the Drone so that when the Drone is close the operator simply grabs the line and "pull down" the Drone. New Drones include Optical Recognition cameras and software that should have the capability of landing the Drone in very windy conditions and onto a moving yacht or ship. Keep in mind that in windy conditions or if you are operating on a moving yacht or even a passenger cruise ship you may need to fly the Drone out in front of the yacht or ship and then let the Drone "drift" back into landing position while slowly bringing the Drone down to the deck. I witnessed a Drone operator attempting to land his Drone on a cruise ship that was moving at 20+ knots. Instead of employing the above technique the operator panicked because his Drone battery was running low (!!) and attempted to land the Drone by moving the Drone mid-ship and then flying the Drone sideways to land on the upper deck. The operator had absolutely no control trying to run sidewise in 20+ knots of wind and totally destroyed his $4000 drone when is crashed into the steel upper structure of the cruise ship!
The Blue Jay is very beginner friendly because of the easy custom controls. Its possible to auto-hover after takeoff and land gently with just one button push. You can also draw a custom route on your smartphone and your drone will fly the route itself. Like many drones in this price range the batteries leave much to be desired. While you should get 8 minutes of flight time when the drone is new these batteries may wear out after a few uses and will need to be replaced. The Blue Jay comes with two batteries and an extra power pack. If you want a high-quality FPV drone this is the right choice. Even as a beginner hooking this drone up to your phone is easy so that you can get a cockpit experience. Fly around and see everything as it happens with the Force 1 U45W Blue Jay drone.
Well thats exactly what makes this sport even more enjoyable and worth being a part of. Since the sport of drone racing is increasing in popularity all over the world the latest drones come equipped with specialized goggles that allow the user to experience the entire flight through his or her eyes. The first thing to do before you actually are a part of such a sporting event is to buy a racing drone. You might already have guessed that not all drones qualify for drone racing. These specialized aerial machines are also known as multi-rotor drones; they move faster than normal drones and are also much more stable. They are also smaller than a drone made for some other purpose such as surveillance mapping or data acquisition. There is a standard on size when it comes to a racing drone because it has to move in various kinds of situations overtake other machines flying nearby and overcome obstacles.
