    Here's a very good example of why checks are important. All set to shoot a hospital this morning and I had gear failure during pre take off checks. Aerial boosters failed to light blue so pulled the pin on this mornings shoot. Heading to an electrician today to fix the contact points. I'll try again tomorrow!
    DO YOUR CHECKS ALWAYS!

    Good advice. No point in having a check list if you don't follow it... ;-)

    Also, be willing to pull the plug if things don't feel right.

    Many check lists floating around... Just search the forums here, or Google.

    What should I use for a checklist? I've never found any.
