Guidelines for QUAD COPTER / DRONES at our Events:
USA BMX is currently in the process of writing up our guidelines for QuadCopters & Drones used for taking photos and videos. At this time, we do require the following:
Open bladed copters/drones need to fly at a further/higher distance - minimum 25' buffer (from the track surface) and will only be allowed to fly in a designated area to the side of the track. Copter must maintain a safe distance from riders and spectators. Take-off and landing area to be designated in a safe area, off to the side of the track.
Enclosed-blade copters or drones will be allowed to fly at lower altitudes and can take-off and land in the infield of the track - IF space allows.
QuadCopters/Drones will NOT be permitted at any Indoor events.
USA BMX will request a copy of all photos/videos shot by QuadCopters or Drones at our events - to be used for future promotional materials and possible use in PULL magazine.
