I don't like the idea of performing an IMU calibration as part of a pre flight check. I would only do this back at home on a flat, level, surface (checked with a spirit level) and usually only after a firmware update. Compass calibration, yes.

Agree in part, but what I would do is check the IMU readings before each flight to check they were ok.

As for compass calibration, I wouldn't do this for every flight either.  Again, I would check the reading as part of the pre-flight and ensure it's around 1500.  If it was either side of 1400-1600, I'd recalibrate the compass

Thanks for the feedback... This checklist was built with advice from DJI reps as well as experienced experienced operators/pilots and personal experience.  With that said, no two perspectives are exactly alike, but the best way to gain knowledge is through sharing information, concepts and ideas.  Constructive criticism and feedback is the best way to obtain that knowledge... Thanks for that and keep it coming...!!!   The goal is to fly SAFE, responsibly, and to protect your investment.   Cheers all.... Jim

I just happened to make my own, but I adjusted it after looking at yours.
I used google docs, because it gives you more printing options or saving it electronically.
What do you guys think?
It is public on the web but not editable. I think if you login with google account you can annotate and such...
The 2nd tab will be for post flight, and I may add another for packing.....
Enjoy!

Thx. The technology of google!
I would really like DJI to incorporate something like this into the app.
I have tried using "cosi" - it's a shopping list app, but I do not like to switch between things.
I guess another option would be a laminated printout and a dry erase marker... It is definitely cool to have a list..  It is too easy to forget something small, and find out it made a big difference.....
I guess I should also perhaps add a point to "check Hover or other such app for no fly zones in your area"... ;)
