(P) Pilot
Am I healthy for flight and what are my personal minimums based upon my experience operating a Drone?

(A) Aircraft
Has a through pre-flight check of the Drone (aircraft sensor equipment control station etc) being completed and determined it to be in a condition for safe operation?

(E) Environment
What is the weather like? Am I comfortable and experienced to fly in forecast weather conditions? Am I flying within the limitations of the Drone? Have I considered all my options and left myself an “out” ? Have I determined alternative landing spots and safe zones in case of an emergency ?

Good checklist, thank you for posting it. Could you please explain what you mean by "personal minimums"  in the first paragraph? And does "out" in the third paragraph mean something like an exit strategy?

Yes correct Out meaning exit strategy, personal minimum, the minimum wellbeing you feel you need to be to fly.

Thank you for the clarification. And I agree that these are important issues.

would you believe if I said I visit the place where I plan to fly a day before to check?

If it’s possible it’s a really good idea, it also gives you a good picture in your head of what’s possible, I do this myself a lot. Good job

Yes indeed,

Sometimes I cancel flying due those checks.

I missed the posts that may have led to this, only insight I could gather was a crash video was posted which on viewing “may” have led to  responses that called into question  the flight over certain terrain that  other owners would not have attempted. This may be  totally wrong and is only conjecture on my part? Hope he comes back  seemed a knowledgeable person to me.

Yes, I also thought that Hallmark had some very informative posting.

The only reason for a ban is not to confirm to the rules of this forum, so DJI moderators know why and ofcourse not telling us because of the general privacy rules.

More people are getting banned lately, not to my surprise people who are trolling, annoying, discriminate and call other names...

cheers

This is my check list, it’s commercial, but can be shortened to suit, it covers practically everything, but much you may not need.

Yeah I have to use above when working, I have much reduced one flying as hobbyists, it’s about 6x4 inch and laminated, but since I’ve been flying, I always take it out go through everything before flying, if I take off without checking something it’s on my mind all through flight. Good luck.
