Safe Drone Operation
Short: It is the responsibility of the pilot and crew to operate drones safely. For full details visit the disclosures and disclaimers page.
It is the responsibility of drone owners, remote pilots in control, persons manipulating the controls, and other members of flight crews to follow FAA laws and regulations and/or the laws and regulations applicable where the flight is taking place. It is also the responsibility of the entire crew to fly safely and responsibly at all times and to follow manufacturer’s recommended protocols and maintenance.
Drone Weight and Registration Requirements
Short: It is the responsibility of the pilot and crew to verify the full weight of the drone. For full details visit the disclosures and disclaimers page.
The FAA requires that drones flown outside, whether for fun or for business, are registered if they fall within certain weight limits. The drone must also be marked with the registration number per the instructions from the FAA. The web site weighs drones and provides guidance as to whether the drone needs to be registered but it is ultimately the responsibility of the owner and the flight crew to to ensure that a drone is not too heavy to require registration or special waiver.
Dangerous Drone Testing
Short: Drone crash tests and related dangerous tests are performed indoors in a safe closed environment. Do not try dangerous tests on your own. For full details visit the disclosures and disclaimers page.
Drone durability tests are performed indoors in a closed environment where all necessary precautions are taken to protect persons and property. The site does not endorse intentionally abusing your equipment, do not attempt intentionally crashing or otherwise stress testing your drone. Flying a drone into objects is dangerous and is very likely to result in damage to the drone, other property, or persons. Flying a drone outside in a reckless manner is in violation of FAA regulations.
Short: Just because you are flying indoors does not mean you are immune from civil and criminal penalties. For full details visit the disclosures and disclaimers page.

Drone Rating Strategy
Short: We don’t judge all drones on the same scale. Drones are compared, at least to some extent, compared to their peers. For full details visit the disclosures and disclaimers page.
We don’t judge all drones on the same scale. Drones are compared, at least to some extent, compared to their peers. Peers will generally have some combination of similar price and/or similar features. Drone ratings may change over time as new drones enter the market or as we learn more about drones that we already have rated. Drone ratings are based on our testing, our reading of drone specifications, and the comments of other drone pilots. While many of our opinions are quantitative in nature, others are somewhat subjective.
