FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A drone is an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) controlled by remote control or a smartphone application. Currently, most drones have the ability to record video, capture photos, or even follow the person controlling them.

Drones can have many uses, from aerial photography to search and rescue operations or even package deliveries.

Drones for kids are usually used for performing stunts, flips, and tricks, but many of them can still record video or take photos.

Operating a drone might feel a bit difficult at first, but with practice, it gets easier. For a beginner, it is best to find a large field or an open area without many people around and practice flying the drone there at first. Most people interested in drones can master all the functions and modes within a few flights.

Drones are not considered very dangerous when operated with care. Drones meant for children are usually very light, so they won't cause serious injury if they hit someone. Child-friendly drones also have propellers that are made of soft plastic, or they are covered by a frame, so they won't hurt you even if you touch a spinning propeller. Heavier, more professional drones should always be operated with care and away from other people.

In the United States, the FAA regulates where you are allowed to fly your drones. In general, you need to keep it at or below 400 feet and stay outside 5 miles away from airports.

For more detailed rules in the United States, please check:

Most recreational drones can fly around 20 – 30 minutes with one charge. This may sound like a short time, but when you fly a drone, a 20-minute flight is usually longer than necessary. You also have the option to purchase extra batteries, so you don't need to charge a single battery between flights. Some professional drones can fly up to 90 minutes, but they come at a high price. Most of our drones are meant for recreational use.

The range of drones may differ due to speed and weather conditions. In general, some drones can fly up to 3 miles, but most drones are meant to be flown within approximately 500 to 1000 meters from your location. The battery duration does not necessarily limit the range. The range can be limited by the wireless signal that can get interference from obstacles – that's why you should always have a line of sight to your drone.

If a drone gets out of the range of the controller, it will automatically return back where the flight began, so you don't need to worry about losing the drone.

Most drones have the ability to sense when the battery is getting low, and if the drone pilot doesn't take action, the drone will automatically fly back to the starting location. If the battery is too low for returning home because of strong headwinds, for example, the drone will automatically land straight down.

In the United States, you should register all drones weighing .55 lbs (250 g) to 55 lbs (25 kg) are to be registered online. Drones heavier than 55 lbs (25 kg) should go through the aircraft registration process. FAA Drone Registration Website: https://faadronezone.faa.gov/#/

Registration requirements are similar in most other countries. If you are not sure whether you need to register your drone or how to do it, please contact us at support@funkypilotstore.com.

The Funky Pilot store has many different drones from different manufactures in our catalog. Which one is the best depends on your needs and your budget. To evaluate the best drone for your needs you should study the specifications of each drone and compare the battery life, range, camera quality, flight modes, and functions, etc. Price is usually a good indicator of the quality and functions of a drone – more expensive usually means better, while a cheap drone may not be as good quality.

This varies from state to state, and some parks may have their own rules regarding drones. It's best to check with the local park service to find out their rules regarding drones.

Yes, but only by following established guidelines by your local authority. You must keep your drone within your line of sight at all times, meaning your drone needs to have some lights to be seen.
