    I liked the checklist. i laminated it and use a dry marker to check things off as I do them. Wipe it off, ready to go again.

    One suggestion, move the "Clear area of non essential personnel" to before starting motors.

    Great pre-flight checklist Rick! I've printed and laminated it but added one thing.

    1. Before turning off the st10+ be sure to stop your video recording or you'll lose it and need recovery procedures to recover your lost video.

    (I found out how to do this but have since lost the post. If I locate it I'll update and add it here as well.)
    Thanks again Rick!

    To recover data you apparently lose (not loose) by turning off the controller before stopping video, just link the ST10 with the craft again and it should correct the error.

    Thanks Chris, I thought it was something as simple as that if memory served me correctly but didn't want to post it if I was incorrect. Thanks for the updated info!
