1. Initial Inspection:
Before beginning the preflight of the DJI Inspire 1, it is important to inspect the drone for any signs of wear and tear, or damage. This should include an inspection of both the body and propellers for scratches, cracks, missing parts, and other damage. Additionally, all screws should be checked to ensure that they are securely fastened.
2. Power Up:
The next step is to power up the drone, which requires turning on the remote control and the Inspire 1 itself. Make sure all the connections between the controller and drone are secure before beginning a flight session. Additionally, it is important to note any updates or alerts that may be available for installation prior to takeoff.
3. Compass Calibration:
It is important to make sure that your compass is calibrated before each flight session with the DJI Inspire 1 in order to avoid potential interference issues while flying. This can be done by placing your Inspire 1 on a level surface and allowing an automated calibration process to complete successfully. It is important to note any alerts or warnings that may occur during the calibration process.
The DJI Inspire 1 features a high-quality camera for capturing stunning aerial footage and photos. Before takeoff, make sure the camera settings are correct and configured to your preferences. Additionally, it’s always a good idea to take test shots of the area you are flying in order to ensure that everything looks good prior to beginning a flight session.
5. Take Off:
Once all the necessary preflight steps have been completed, it is time for takeoff! Double check your airspace restrictions before taking off, along with any other pertinent information such as weather conditions and local laws regarding drone use. Once all is clear, it’s time to take off and enjoy a successful flight session with the DJI Inspire 1.
