Prior to flight
⃝ Check you are legally allowed to fly at the chosen location and ensure you conform to the relevant drone laws of your country and state
⃝ Check the weather conditions – Ensure wind speeds do not exceed the drone’s parameters
⃝ Ensure the Drones APP is up to date
⃝ Check the propellers are in good condition – are not chipped or cracked etc.
⃝ Calibrate The drones compass as per directions – Always re-calibrate the drone if you have moved locations.
Start up and Take off
⃝ Ensure successful pairing of the App to the drone
⃝ Check the drone battery level indicator and remote controller battery levels
⃝ Check the GPS signal and make sure that enough satellites have been located
⃝ Engage and start the drone motors
⃝ Hover the drone at no more than 10 metres for 10 seconds to ensure the drone is behaving normally and responding correctly – if not, land the drone and re- calibrate the drone’s compass
After flight checks and maintenance
⃝ Even if you did not land the quadcopter in water, salty air and spray can cause corrosive actions. Where possible, clean the drone directly after use or within 2 hours.
⃝ Remove the Quadcopter battery and place it in fire- proof pouch or container and store in a cool environment.
⃝ Carefully inspect all propellers, if a propeller is damaged (Even slightly damaged) – replace the propeller immediately. Do not attempt to fly the aircraft with a damaged propeller as this can cause the aircrafts stability to deteriorate or become unmanageable, resulting in the potential loss of the drone and/or causing personal injury.
