Does anyone have a Pre-Flight and Post Flight check list? I would like to add it to the Tips and Tricks for the TH.

Thanks,

Gary

Detailed, but one I use:
PRE-FLIGHT / RUN-UP
  • Verifying all transmitter, on-board aircraft and camera batteries are fully charged; (confirm voltages)
  • Ensure no frequency conflicts with both video and transmitter / receiver
  • Checking all control surfaces for signs of damage, loose hinges, and overall condition; Looking over the wing/rotors to ensure they are in good structural condition and properly secured;
  • Check motor/engine and mounting attached to the airframe;
  • Study propellers / mounting hardware (tight) / rotor blades for chips and deformation;
  • Check the landing gear for damage and function
  • Test electrical connections, plugged in and secure
  • Ensure photo / video equipment mounting system is secure and operational.
  • Check location of GPS equipment controlling the autopilot.
  • Check the IMU movements in the ground control software.
  • UAV in stabilization mode, ensure control surfaces move towards the correct positions
  • UAV / Drone is in a level location safe for takeoff
  • FPV / Power up ground station
  • FPV / Power up Video receiver / goggles
  • If using Video recorder turn on camera system
  • Camera settings are correct (still images, video, framerate)
  • SD camera memory clear and inserted into the camera
  • Action / Start filming
  • All transmitter controls move freely in all directions
  • All transmitter trims in neutral position
  • All transmitter switches in correct position( typically away) In Smart Mode you are 26' away at take off and landings.
  • Transmitter throttle to zero, no imputs on sticks till take off cleared
  • Radio transmitter on
  • Connect / power on battery to airframe
  • Ensure led indicators and audible tones are correct
  • Timer on (if applicable)
  • FPV, confirm video is in monitor / goggles
  • Scan for nearby cars / people / animals
  • Say “CLEAR!”
  • Arm flight controller
  • Increase throttle slightly listening for any abnormalities
  • Short 20-30 second hover at 3-5 feet (listen for vibrations / loose items)
  • Confirm Voltage levels are correct
  • Have Fun your Typhoon H !
