1. Ensure sufficient power, and should not take off if the temperature is too low
Before performing the operation, for safety reasons, the drone pilot should ensure that the battery is fully charged when the drone takes off, so as to ensure that the battery is in a high-voltage state; if the temperature is low and the takeoff conditions are not met, the drone should not be forced to take off.
2. Preheat the battery to keep it active
Low temperatures can cause the battery temperature to be too low for takeoff. Pilots can place the battery in a warmer environment, such as indoors or inside a car, before performing the mission, and then quickly remove the battery and install it when the mission requires it, and then take off to perform the mission. If the working environment is harsh, UAV pilots can use a battery preheater to preheat the UAV’s battery to keep it active.
3. Ensure sufficient signal
Before taking off in snow and ice conditions, please make sure to check the battery power of the drone and the remote control, at the same time, you need to pay attention to the surrounding operating environment, and make sure that the communication is smooth before the pilot takes off the drone for operation, and always pay attention to the drone in the visual range of the flight, so as not to cause flight accidents.
4. Increase the alarm value percentage
In low temperature environment, the endurance time of the drone will be greatly shortened, which threatens the flight safety. Pilots can set the low battery alarm value higher in the flight control software, which can be set to about 30%-40%, and land in time when receiving the low battery alarm, which can effectively avoid over-discharging of the drone’s battery.
5. Avoid the entry of frost, ice and snow
When landing, avoid the battery connector, drone battery socket connector or charger connector directly touching the snow and ice, so as to avoid short circuit caused by snow and water.
6. Pay attention to warmth protection
Pilots need to be equipped with enough warm clothing when operating in the field to ensure that their hands and feet are flexible and easy to fly, and when flying in icy or snow-covered weather, they can be equipped with goggles to prevent light reflection from causing damage to the pilot’s eyes.
