Join Jim Heid for an in-depth discussion in this video Safety checks: From you to the drone, part of DJI Mavic Pro: Tips, Tricks, & Techniques.
(beeping)…- Whenever I hear that drone start-up sound,…I get a little rush of adrenaline.…I always tell people that's as close as I'll ever get,…to the feeling of parachuting out of an airplane.…And, the reason I feel that little hint of anxiousness,…is because I'm about to go to battle with gravity,…which is always waiting for any little mistake…that could allow it to bring your drone to the ground.…That's why it's important to have a little…pre-flight checklist…and to approach the take-off process methodically.…Now, disciplining yourself to do this isn't always easy,…there will be times when you're…out with your drone in it's bag…and, all of a sudden, the clouds get incredible or…something else happens that you just…want to shoot right now.…
You will be tempted to rip your drone out of its bag…and get it into the air as soon as you possibly can.…Resist that temptation.…In the aviation world, there's an acronym pilots use called…PAVE.…It's a handy way of remembering the factors…that can cause things to go very, very wrong.…
