Drones are fun to fly but they can be hazardous to low flying planes and helicopters in rural areas. Tests indicate drones are very difficult for pilots to spot. Drone users need to be aware that crop dusters and fire fighting planes fly at very low levels and that crops can mute the sounds of engines. Be aware of locations of small rural or private airstrips to fly safe.
