Are you planning to fly an unmanned aircraft, a drone, a model aircraft, a rocket, or the launch of an unmanned free or tethered balloon? You can find out here what you need to know before flying from the point of view of the airspace, which is a shared space with many other users.
Do you not know the difference between the used terms?
The general all-encompassing name is an unmanned system (abbr. as UAS). Such system consists of an unmanned aircraft, a transmitter, and possibly other components (e.g., a mobile or tablet used as flight controls, including any software used, a launch catapult, etc.). In short, it covers all flying equipment of different types and sizes without a pilot on board. These are popularly referred to as drones, although this term most often includes only (multi) copters or military aircraft. An unmanned aircraft intended exclusively for recreation and sport, driven predominantly by hand (without automatic navigation) is called a model aircraft. However, an unmanned aircraft includes a wide variety of kinds and types that can be operated in the shared airspace of the Czech Republic by following certain rules - see below.
