The only CSC that works all the time for me is the throttle down. I have had several experiences with the other two CSC maneuvers and the motor did not stop when I tried those and the drone became a problem. When you need the motors to stop, you need the motors to stop! Find your best way and do it.

I created a solid checklist for pre-flight and post-flight for the P3S.
I see some online, but they are not exactly print-able, so mine is formatted and set up to be a tangible checklist to bring with you when you fly your Phantom.

If anybody has any other ideas on modifications I should make to it, I would be glad to consider them. Of course, feel free to print the checklist if you'd like!
I printed it out and will be laminating it as well, thanks @kptw_pilot

Hi All! I figured I'd revive this old thread in case any drone ops were still searching for a checklist to fit their needs. I created a couple (one for the US and one for Canada) and they apply to most DJI drones (especially Mavics and Phantoms) but it will also work for other brands - especially for the pre-flight hub stuff (see below).

Besides having checkable boxes for use on your phone in the field, they have plenty of tips on how to avoid emergencies and what to do if you do have one.

When planning a flight on your computer at home, these lists have clickable links to airspace maps, weather forecasts, TFRs and more. Plus the Canadian list has a form for listing all the pertinent info needed when flying near an aerodrome.

These lists cost $11 and 15 respectively but I would have paid that and more to have avoided some of the crashes I've had over the years. Hopefully what I learned the hard way will keep others from repeating my mistakes.

If you place an order before Oct. 31st, use code "MAVIC" to save 10%. Happy Flying!
