Hey all, just wanted to share my flight checklist with any who are interested. I hit "Add to home screen" and placed it in the "drone" folder on my iPhone so it's quickly accessible. Hope the checklist provides value for some peeps! The picture below is just a screenshot of the checklist. The downloadable pdf. version can be found at www.letusdrone.com

Good list and organization. Only thing I'd add: Format SD card (if desired) before take off.

Very good list.  I have a really bad habit of forgetting to take the gimbal cover off.    So my list is very specific.  Secure Battery in Drone, REMOVE GIMBAL COVER,  power on.

Great List.  

But I got a LoL out of While at Home - Firmware / App updated.
I have done that 1-hour before flying.  Verified updates were installed.
Walked outside, powered up drone, RC, and Smartdevice only to see a notice about an Update.

What about put Tablet/Pad/Phone in Airplane mode before flight?
After flight, put back to normal mode.

Awesome checklist.  I assume the download link is in the resources section?  It is not working

I feel this is one of the most underrated but important steps to be honest.  I completely agree this should be on the list.

Hey SparksBird, glad you like the checklist. You are correct, the pdf download is under the "resources" tab. Were you able to download it? I checked and it seems to be working on my end...

One more: Carry extra micro-SD cards in case of extended flight and no way to fee space to an external storage device

There are things on this list which I would not do.
WILE AT HOME.
Update app.
Update firmware.
MISSING.
Charge device. You don't fly so much on low battery device.
BEFORE TAKEOFF.
Calibrate compass.
Don't do this if the app don't tell you.
Almost half of  tread about flyaway and crashes start with: Updated my FW  and app, calibrated compass before fly.
What I do is opening the IMU and Compass page and see if something is wrong.
If compass is off try to move the drone before calibrate.
ONCE LANDED.
First ensure footage and videos are ok before turning off.
It can save a lot of time later.

Very nice, thank you.
Unlikely, on the desktop of the iphone, it is not clickable to ensure yourself all the steps have been done.
