If you find a drone under the Christmas tree this season, be sure to take time to learn how to use it safely.
Keep drones away from overhead power lines. If a drone flies into a power line, it could cause power outages and result in downed lines, which pose a dangerous electrical safety hazard.

Keep these other safety guidelines in mind:
• Have a damaged drone repaired before use.
• Never fly drones higher than 400 feet.
• Do not fly the drone beyond your line of sight.
• Do not fly near electric substations or energy generation plants, airports, manned aircraft, stadiums or people.
• Do not fly for commercial purposes, unless specifically authorized by the Federal Aviation Adminstration.
• Do not fly in bad weather conditions, such as in low visibility or high winds.
• Never fly your drone recklessly. You could be fined for endangering people or other aircraft.
