Thanks if this youtube member is on this forum. Thought I'd share one of the best pre-flight vids I've seen lately. I've been guilty of landing and swapping packs myself, I know I'm not the only one out there.

Much appreciated, great checklist! I always liked the videos for instruction, guess that puts me in the visual learner section.

It was before my time, but I have heard about him from time to time. So I get it. I guess he was an earlier version of the clown.

Also he did the range test wrong on the DX7 you have to hold the bind button down throughout the whole range test not just hold it for a couple of seconds and let go!

60% of the time, it works every time!

There is an IPhone Application called "Air Check" that works well - not sure if it is out there for other smart phones as well.
