To sum up what has been posted below: Never shut down your motors by pressing and holding both remote control sticks down and to the center (the Phantom might tip over). Instead, hold the left stick straight down until the motors shut down (~4 seconds). Don't fly near birds, dogs, or other animals. Don't charge the batteries while they are still hot from the previous flight. Don't use live video without props on in doors (it will overheat wifi card due to no circulation). Always remove the gimbal protector before powering up the Phantom. Make sure the S1 and S2 switches are in the top position before taking off. And be mindful of their positions when wearing gloves (in case you accidentally switch them).
