Drones can be hazardous if operated incorrectly. As pilot you are ultimately responsible for your aircraft, so it's a good idea to be aware of the regulations before taking off. In the UK, the CAA set the rules relating to how and where you can fly your multirotor. The regulations may seems a little confusing at first, but in the large part they are just based on common sense and are designed to make flying safe for everyone. To that end, we urge all of our customers to adhere to rules when flying.

While it's generally agreed that quadcopters are easier to fly than traditional RC helicopters, they still do have somewhat of a learning curve. Depending on your choice of multirotor, the nature of the challenge will vary greatly. The extremes range from highly sophisticated, expensive platforms, which can essentially fly themselves but require programing knowhow; to the most elementary cheaper copters, which are more like regular helicopters. This guide is aimed at the beginner and will therefore focus on the latter.
