    Hi, I'm a newbie with a P3A and I've been watching videos, reading all the good advice here and have about 8 flights under my belt.
    I'm trying to make s pre-flight checklist just so I don't skip something important in my rush to get airborne and was wondering if I should change or add anything to this list.

    Check batteries, controller & iPhone
    Attach prop guards
    Remove Gimbal Guard
    Turn on controller, drone & software in that order
    GPS switch to "P"
    RTH set to "Man"
    Calibrate Compass
    Quad screen, advanced -->
    Failsafe = RTH, Failsafe Alt = 200 ft
    Landing lights: on or off
    SaFe To Fly (GPS) GREEN
    Video Record: On
    Clear area
    Take off

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Well The compass calibration is unnecessary if you got a good one and are not 100K from where you did it, and check that you have the sd in with available space. In my case I add taking the yorkie to his cage.
