i am reading all these props falling off and batteries dieing mid flight etc is there a list we can compile for all the new guys? Here is my attempt at the list 1. Check the description of the updates and read the threads before you upgrade the firmware on the phantom. Always good to wait a week or so 2. Charge the battery fully to 100% 3. Make sure your first flight is on soft grass area and not paved road or concrete 4. Do the calibrations 5. When ever I get a new battery I keep the first flight really close to me so I can grab it in case of something going wrong. Or have a low altitude flight so in case of an issue the damage is minimal. 6. Loosen the screws and hand tighten them making sure to not use excessive force. Anything else?
