You know how it goes; You have a beautiful new DJI Phantom 4 and a couple of batteries, you’re off to the park, to the open fields, you start unpacking your kit and you realise, s*%# I forgot my lightning cable! Trust me, I know the feeling, it has happened to me in the past, and it will happen to every single drone operator out there. If they say it has not happened yet, it will someday.
Luckily I learned from my mistake. Nowadays I never have to worry about a missing cable on location, because this error prompted me to create a checklist that minimizes the risk of forgetting equipment before I get out of the door.
In this blog post, I will give you the secret to my pre-flight checklist starting at home/the office. I will also give this checklist to you so you can print and use them for all your pre-flight prep.
Wednesday we’ll dive into the second part of the pre-flight setup which is a pre-flight checklist on location. We’ll go into the specifics of setting up on-site following a checklist and getting off the ground quickly. But that’s for later!
