    Here is a basic Pre-Flight, Flight and Post Flight Checklist for anyone who is interested. After creating this I laminated it and put in my case so it would be there every time I head out to fly! I have been flying R/C Aircraft for over 30 years with very few incidents; safety is always my primary concern and all of our responsibility. Hope this gives you a good starting point!

    Here is Version 2 of this Checklist!

    • MicroSD Card inserted into camera

      It would be smart to check if the card has enough free space or is empty.
      Perhaps a testrecording at home.
      Nothing more is annoying when you travel far away and have a none usable
      memory card take with you.
      Same problem, check, if the recording is started and still running.
      I was wondering after my fly, why the started record has endet
      after some seconds. Focuses on the fly I had not noticed this fault.

    I think there's at least a few checks on that list I dont do ......
    1. I am on v.1.5 and am not updating it unless need to.....If it aint broke ......etc.etc.
    2. Accelerometer and compass need not to be calibrated EVERY flight
    3.connecting anything other than the st10 to the cgo3 creates tons of lag.....

    All the rest is agreeable....Safety first, i agree

    Hi Bee,
    The Checklist is not designed to be perfect for everyone, it was designed as a good starting point. The intent is that you can modify the line items to meet your needs. Enjoy!

    Outstanding checklist. As an Aircrew Member with 22 years of Air Force service, I truly know the value of checklist operations. Thanks again, Rick!

    Hey Rick,
    Have another item for Pre-Flight checklist.........determine if there is anybody else flying in your area. My morning flight was quite interesting. More to come on General Discussion.
