The most important drone rules at a glance.


I fly safely because

  • I know and comply with the laws.
  • I have complete control of my drone.
  • I respect other people‚Äôs privacy.
  • I am not a danger to people or animals.
  • I do not fly in nature reserves.
  • I check with the local authorities about any flying restrictions.
  • I avoid other aircraft in good time.
  • I am properly insured.

Without permission, I never fly

    • Closer than 5 km to airfields and heliports.
    • More than 150 m above the ground in control zones.
    • Closer than 50 meters above private property.
    • Close to where emergency services are working.
    • Over or less than 100m from groups of people.
    • Unless I have direct eye contact with the drone.
    • An aircraft that weighs more than 30 kg in flight.
    • During the night.
Where am I allowed to fly?
  • The flight zone map provides information about no-fly zones. The app that you need to fly a DJI drone will tell you if you are not allowed to fly at your location or only with permission. In addition to the DJI app, we recommend installing the skyguide app "Swiss U-Space".

- Purple: Airports and airfields, no-fly zone within a radius of 5 kilometres.

- Yellow: Nature reserves, no-fly zone.

- Blue: Flying allowed, but not higher than 150 metres.

- Red: No-fly zone for all drones, to be found near Vaduz.

 Important note

  • Activate the offline or flight mode in your smartphone before the flight. This way, the image information on the display is not interrupted by incoming messages and calls. No distractions - more safety!


  • Drones are complex flying machines! We explain below what the magnetic compass, air pressure sensor, obstacle detection and other features are all about.
The magnetic compass is used for the geographical orientation of the drone. If the compass is disturbed by electromagnetic fields, this will have a negative effect on the drone's navigation.
The higher the drone flies, the lower the air pressure becomes. This can be measured and is used to maintain the flight altitude. If there are pressure fluctuations, the flight altitude of the drone changes.
The Global Position Satellite System (GNSS) helps the drone to determine its position. Data from various systems such as GPS, Galileo or Beidou are used.

The drone flies itself back to the starting point and lands. If the battery runs out or the radio signal breaks off, this happens automatically; the function can also be triggered specifically.
Sensors enable the drone to react actively. Drone models equipped with distance sensors can fly around or stop obstacles in good light conditions.
