No problem, once you start to use them you see the real benefits they bring.

I understand the value of having a list, I also ride a motorcycle and use a list before every ride. As a new flyer, it's nice to be able to see and have lists from more experienced flyers - helps me make sure I don't overlook something that may be critical!!

Again, thanks for sharing!

A check list is a powerful tool. I created one a few years ago when I flew the Phantom P2.  Any failure to confirm a step resulted in a no-fly day - I was very sticky with this rule.  Included is a section for any additional notes, ideas or issues regarding  this flight.  I recorded them once the quadcopter landed and the ideas were still fresh in the mind.

Will need to update the checklist with the new quadcopter.  Thanks for sharing your check list hallmark007
