New to the community with a few questions-Steve Bryant

Recommended Posts

My name is Steve.   I live in Oklahoma City, OK.  I read that I need to use a TAG; I don't know how to do that or even what it is. 

I want to fly a drone in the British Virgin Island during a two (2) week vacation, on a 40 foot sailboat in the late summer to fall (if I have to wait until winter, then so be it....China virus dependent) 2021.

My ideal priorities are these:

1.  The drone with the least complicated and easiest flight capabilities possessing good visual of flight via visor or bright control screen.

2. Powerful flight capabilities.  (I will be flying from a sailboat in a breezes from 15-20 miles per hour+.)

3. Excellent camera

4.  Long battery life  

I will be flying over sea water from a sailboat.  I hope I won't be limited by the number of drones that are not water resistant (salt water).  I plan to recover the drone by the use of a net or sheet into which the drone could be driven for safe recovery on a sailboat.  Such a process would not require both a proficient pilot as well as a brave person to actually catch the drone thus eliminating the potential for those types of accidents that could arise from a lack of confidence and a less than proficient command of the drone.

Thank you in advance for your feedback,


Thank you,

I don’t know what a TAG is either.  I wouldn’t worry about that, your on a boat you can pretty much fly wherever you like.  

Generally, multi rotors and salt water are mutually exclusive of each other so there are very few choices.
