Due to the high number of drones that are being sold, drones have become more commonplace in everyday life.
If you are interested in drones there are many places in San Diego where you can fly them.
The easiest place to start flying drones is at a park because most parks have designated areas for model aircraft flights.
One park with a designated area for drones is the Del Mar Mesa Preserve in Solana Beach.
Here you can fly drones in open areas of the park away from trails, roads and people.
Another place to fly drones is at Torrey Pines Glider Port, but be aware that this is a fee-based location where drones are only allowed when they are being used for soaring purposes.
Carmel Valley Community Park has an unmanned aircraft field that members of the San Diego Modelers Association use for flying drones.
If you are interested in learning more about drones it’s smart to attend some events so you can meet other drone enthusiasts. Two events include Sky Sox 2018 on 17th – 18th and the UAS Expo on 2nd – 3rd.
The drones that are being sold today can be used for numerous purposes beyond just taking photos and videos.
Some drones are used for racing, while others are used to help firefighters by carrying thermal imaging cameras over wildfires so they can get a better picture of what’s going on around them.
Other drones like the DJI Matrice 210 RTK take aerial imagery of areas where cell phone service is too poor for drones with cameras to work effectively.
If you want to fly drones in San Diego it’s best to get started right away because there will always be places that allow drones if there isn’t another event nearby when you’re ready to fly again. If you want drones to play a more important role in your life it’s best if you get involved with drones by contacting an organization like the Drone User Group Network where you can meet up with other drone enthusiasts.
The drones that are being sold today come equipped with numerous features, but one of the most important is obstacle avoidance which will help drones avoid collisions better than without obstacle avoidance technology on board.
If drones do have an accident no matter what caused the accident it’s usually required that they be inspected for damage before flying again just as manned aircraft must be inspected before their next flight.
