IRONQUAD reserves the right to require any customer to leave the course if it believes that it is unsafe for him/her (or other customers who may be affected) to continue or if s/he persistently fails to follow instructions given to him/her by IRONQUAD’s staff.

Every customer has a duty to behave with due regard to the inherent risks of FPV drone operations and equipment and to mitigate such risks. In particular, the customer is expected to respect the requirement of IRONQUAD and other customers to enjoy a safe and well co-ordinated experience. IRONQUAD may require the customer to withdraw from the course where the customer’s behavior is unsuitable (in particular, behavior which is dangerous or disruptive and places at risk the customer’s own safety or the safety of others). Any damage to property or equipment as a result of inappropriate behavior will be a liability of the customer and recovered from him/her.
