Can I fly my drone indoors?

Can I Fly My Drone Indoors at School? There is much confusion around at the moment with using drones in schools. Particularly around using micro-drones such as the Parrot Mambo or DJI Tello indoors.

Which Micro Drone Should I Buy

Which Micro Drone Should I Buy

We often get asked, ‘which drone should I buy for our school?’ Well, here are some comments for micro drones, which are weigh less than100 grams. The micro drones are great for schools just getting started as they are cheap, and the risk profile is relatively low. We have a seven-year-old son who has been using the micro drones since he was five. So, we know that young students can use the micro drones, but it is just the younger they are, the more space they need to fly as their hand-eye coordination isn’t well advanced. And expect more crashes!

Teachers, are you tired of saying the same thing each lesson and wondering if you have forgotten to say something important?
