Before you even begin flying your DJI Phantom 4, it’s important to check that all the components and parts are in good working order. Check that all four propellers are securely attached and visually inspect them for any damage or wear. Ensure that the battery is charged to full capacity and not damaged in any way. Also, check that the remote controller is connected properly to the aircraft and has ample battery level.
2. Flight Planning
Before flying your DJI Phantom 4, it’s essential to have a thorough plan in place. This should include taking into account the location of no-fly zones, height restrictions and other local rules and regulations when planning your route or mission. Additionally, ensure that you have an emergency protocol ready just in case something goes wrong during the flight.
3. DJI GSR Settings
Once all preflight checks are complete and you’re ready to take off, it’s essential to configure the appropriate settings on your DJI GSR app before commencing operations. This includes setting the altitude ceiling, minimum distance limit and maximum speeds that it is allowed to fly at.
Before beginning your mission, make sure that you have configured your camera settings correctly for the desired outcome. For example, take into account what type of video quality or image resolution you would like to achieve during flight and adjust the settings accordingly prior to takeoff.
5. Advanced Settings
The DJI Phantom 4 has several advanced features available in its app such as flight modes, obstacle avoidance sensors and intelligent flight options which should be taken into consideration prior to flight. Carefully read through each setting and understand how they work before enabling them for use during a mission.
6. Larger Sites & Corridors
If you’re planning on flying at larger sites or along corridors, additional safety precautions should be taken into account in your preflight checklist. This includes setting a maximum speed limit for the drone and avoiding any obstacles that could interfere with its flight path. Additionally, ensure that there is adequate visibility to navigate safely during takeoff and landing.
7. DJI GSR App
The DJI Go Smart Remote app is essential when it comes to controlling your Phantom 4 drone. The app allows users to access all settings and features of the aircraft while also enabling them to monitor battery life during flight as well as view a live feed from the camera onboard the drone itself.
Once all the necessary settings have been configured and you’re ready to take off, it’s important to ensure that you keep a close eye on the drone while in flight. Pay close attention as to how it is responding while in the air and be prepared to act quickly if any unexpected behaviour occurs.
After flying your DJI Phantom 4 for a successful mission, make sure to bring the aircraft back within range of the remote controller before turning it off. Additionally, take some time to check that all components are still in good working order and not damaged or worn from use. Finally, remember to upload all footage or images taken during the flight onto a storage device for later review.
10. Data Upload
Once you’ve completed your mission, take the time to upload all data and flight logs onto a secure storage device or cloud platform. This will aid in future analysis of your drone operations as well as provide an easy way to access recorded footage. Additionally, the flight log data can be used for further insight into how the aircraft was performing during each mission.
