With Drones being the new buzz worldwide in tech products, they are not as simple as we think they are by opening the box, charging the batteries and then letting the new gadget soar into the skies.
There are several rules that are to be obeyed first.

The Federal Aviation Administration insists on registering their unit with the agency or will face fines of up to $250,000. You can register here: http://www.faa.gov/uas/registration.With San Francisco, for instance, strictly prohibited drone flying at the Golden Gate Bridge.

The basic bottom rules being:
• No drone flying over- 400 feet in the air, probably not on People’s heads and Moving cars or in and around sports stadium with the most important being not to fly in dark or within 5 miles of an airport. Most importantly the drone has to remain within your line of sight the entire period.
• Photographers, real estate agents and others who want to use drones for their businesses needs have to be called a Part 107 waiver from the FAA which is not an easy test, more understanding airspace and how airplanes and airports interact with the operation of a drone is required .with several online courses set up to help investors study for the test, including Drone Launch Academy are established.
• With DJI, just releasing two new models, the Mavic Pro 2 ($1449) and the Mavic Pro 2 Zoom, the upgrade may include bigger image sensor and lens accordingly. So, The FAA recommends the B4UFly smartphone app in order to check whether it’s legal to fly in an area or not.
