I love checklists.  I have tried to be more like my wife in being able to mentally keep a running tally of what needs done, but I continue to fail miserably.  Thankfully, there are other people who also appreciate lists, and the folks at Story and Heart were kind enough to share one of theirs with us.  It not only serves as a checklist, but it offers tips to explain some of the method for the madness.

I would also like to take the liberty to add a few of my own:

So, what tips might you add to the checklist?

    wouldn’t it be nice to include actual FAA rules in there too? Like no flying above 400 feet. No flying within 5 miles of an airport. Don’t fly with a loaded pistol on the drone. You know the important stuff

      Don’t forget to add don’t interfere with emergency vehicles and aircraft. I am always miffed when I read that several drones impeded the rescue and saving of several vehicles during a fire because they want to get “footage”; it happened recently in CA/AZ.
