Before you fly or “LEAPE” , just ask yourself the following questions:

Location - Am I allowed to fly here?
Environment - Are the conditions safe to fly in?
Aircraft - Is my drone in a condition safe for flight?
Pilot - Am I qualified and in a condition to confidently fly?
Emergency - What can go wrong and what will I do if it does?

Great mnemonic. If everyone took a few minutes before every flight and calmly did a LEAPE check, Im sure there would be a few fewer incidents.

I remember the term GUMPS from when flew a 182RG. If I left off the S, then I would have forgotten to fasten my seat belt. :)

@Viciam you're joking right?

L - Look for cops. If there is not any, you are ok to fly.
E - If there is lots of wind, Escape and fly only between buildings because there is less wind
A - You need Aircraft for this
P - If you are flying with goggles, take motion sickness Pills
E - Bring Extra battery
