Just getting started with my FC40. Does anyone have a preflight and post flight checklist file that they could post or send to me?

I've noticed that a lot of people think the whole manual should be in a checklist file. WRONG! In a full sized aircraft it is wrong. The manual, and even condensed manual should be read thoroughly, reviewed, and read some more. But a checklist isn't for reviewing the manual. It's to get you in the air, while avoiding common mistakes.

Single Airplane Example:
X.) Check Flaps for operation then up (or takeoff position). Mess this up in a lot of aircraft and you die.

Quads:
1) Check propellers are hand snugged tight. (Ah, I didn't once. Miracle. Made it back. Barely.)
Batteries, both RC and Quad
Firmware up to date, IF NOT MAKE **** SURE YOU KNOW WHY IT WON'T MATTER
Compass Calibration
Initial Switch settings
.

Hover low at takeoff, check stable hover, control operation. Find problems low first! LOL

That's what I think of as a "checklist". Not a manual review. OH, A CHECKLIST SHOULD BE WHAT YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST USE IF YOU'RE IN A HURRY!! NO EXCUSES.
