Fantastic document. Number 63 (pay attention to messages) should be first. Many of the losses discussed here over the past couple of weeks are directly related to not following that hint.

I compiled all of my best DJI drone tips into this guide to help you prevent a crash or flyaway with your DJI drone. If you follow the advice in this guide, you will learn many tips for flying safely and will greatly reduce the chance of a flyaway or crash.

Thanks! I've been hesitant to take my Mavic out of Beginner Mode until I learned what to do in flyaways (or how to prevent them in the 1st place). I will fly with more confidence now!

Thank you hugely for your comprehensive posting. I like the PDF idea, but will probably make a folder of notes if that's not a possibility.

5 thumbs up! This is really a great overview for us new to the drone world. I carry the manual in a 3 ring binder wherever I fly to use it for reference. This would be awesome to print and have it with me to review when I'm out in the back country. Thank you for all the time you have put into helping others.

If possible, it would be great if this were downloadable as a PDF so I could have it on my phone for future reference when I'm out and about
I don't have a PDF version, but it's a good idea. That page is mobile friendly, so you could bookmark it on your phone and read it from there as long as your phone is connected to the Internet.
