The No-Win Drone Battery Conundrum

 

Drone manufacturers’ advice for the care and charging of batteries can be very impractical, particularly when the job calls for speedy deployment. AOPA Web Editor Jim Moore, a remote pilot who has covered unmanned aircraft operations and the industry since 2014, and North Carolina firefighter, pilot, and writer Steve Rhode drill down on how they balance priorities to maintain safety in the face of conflicting instructions. The webinar will cover battery storage, transportation, maintenance, and actual use in real world situations—not all of which ended as well as participating pilots would have liked.
