Pull the command stick on the RC, and your drone is flying. Sounds easy, right? It's ture that making a drone flying is very easy, however, skills are needed to fly a drone. Here are some mistakes you should avoid when you fly a drone.
Mistake 1: Flying in cold weather without pre-heating your battery
In general, flying in cold weather will drain your battery faster, so keep a close eye on it! Making sure your battery is warm enough before flight will help. It’s recommended to pre-heat your battery to 68°F (20°C) or more. If you don’t have a battery heater, hover in place before taking off to make sure your battery warms up.
Mistake 2: Do not check the settings before the flight
Every good pilot should have his checklist and do routine checks as part of the planning of the shot. It's like when you go on the road: check fuel, oil levels, air in the tires and operation in general. In this case, check the charge of your batteries, status of the propellers, calibration, etc., in addition to the settings of battery alerts, RTH, sensors, among others.
