Pre-flight checks

Items checklist

Introduction

Aircraft:

Aircraft

Visual check - no visible damage to shell

Landing gear ok

All screws/fixings present

Props inspected

Motors freeness and noise ok

Radio Controller

Batteries

Spare charged batteries

Camera

Camera reference - ie. GP1

Visual - from damage

Protective cap removed - lens clean

Wireless connection on

Remote function and battery level check

Camera set to required media settings.

FPV Video check

Video TX firmly attached

TX antenna attached (MUST be connected before powering up!)

Loose cables tied away from camera vision

Flight Control Checks

Batteries: Using the battery capacity checker, record the battery number, individual cell voltages should be very similar, and note capacity in % below

Battery no.

Capacity (%)

Ensure controller sticks are centered, IOC set to OFF, mode set to GPS (or ATTI if required).

Power on controller first, then put flight battery into aircraft and connect any accessories before hooking up main power. When connecting main power, it will go through startup checks and IMU warm up. Do not attempt to stow the excess cables and close the battery door until the aircraft has started to indicate state and satellite lock. If there is a constant red/yellow indication it will be necessary to carry out compass calibration immediately.

Start camera recording.

Once a fast series of green lights has been seen, start the motors to check that all props are spinning. Apply some throttle to hover at about 2-6ft above ground, and test the pitch (foward & back), roll (to left and right) and yaw (rotate CW and CCW).

Takeoff time

Total flight time.

Pilot is happy that all controls are working correctly.
