Drone Maintenance Guide
A drone can be a long-lasting investment if you maintain it properly. There are some weatherproof and premium quality drones available, but that doesn’t mean you need to be harsh in handling them.
Before you start operating one, check the user’s manual thoroughly. Go over all the instructions and follow them point by point. The battery is the heart of your drone. Check the recommended capacity of the battery and the charging time. Before each flight, make sure the battery is fully charged. It’s better not to overcharge the battery and also avoid draining it completely on a flight.
When you’re not using the drone, please remove the battery, and keep it in a dry place. The drone should come with a carrying case where you can store the battery as well. If not, get a separate pouch or case for placing the battery.
Instead of carrying the drone by hand, use a bag no matter how little you travel with the drone. Try not to lose the carrying case or bag that is usually provided with the drone. If you do lose it, use a bag or backpack that can hold the drone without causing any pressure that can damage any part.
Don’t forget to check the weather forecast before scheduling flight time with your drone. You might have a weatherproof drone, but that doesn’t mean you need to test it out at any chance you get. Nature is unpredictable. One slight mishap, and you can lose your drone for good.
After each flight, make sure you clean your drone before storing it away. It’s bound to catch some dirt and have some grass stuck on it, depending on the area you fly it in. Clean them all with a microfiber cloth before putting the drone into the bag.
