The Mavic 2 Pro & Zoom models are an expansion of the awesome original folding Mavic Pro. The Mavic 2 Pro features a 1” CMOS sensor developed by DJI and Hasselblad. The Mavic 2 Zoom features a single camera with multiple focal lengths that lets you optically zoom the camera while in flight for awesome effects! That is just scratching the surface of some of the major new features in these drones - but we’ve made a preflight checklist that can help you get the most out of your Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom in the safest way possible.
Using a pre-flight checklist is very helpful when it comes to flying. These drones have a lot of pieces and batteries and memory cards to remember, using a checklist will help to make sure each step is done in the proper sequence to get the most out of your flights. Even though the Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom has a 31 minutes battery/flight time - every second counts when you’re on location and in the air!
I broke the Preflight Checklist into 6 different parts, so you can skip ahead if you've already done a portion of the checklist! The different sections of the checklist are:
- Make sure items are present
- Battery Check
- Prepare the aircraft
- Powering up
- Begin Flight
Using the PDF I'll send you above - I've tried to condense everything down to a single sheet of US letter (8.5in x 11in) so you can print out this Mavic 2 Pro / Zoom pre flight checklist to have in your bag with you when you leave to go shoot! I like using preflight checklists since it's easy to forget things like charging batteries, attaching ND filters when your taking off from the shade - but filming in the sunlight, Inserting the SD card before flight. It sounds ridiculous, but literally all of these things have happened to me when I thought I didn't need a preflight checklist. There is no shame in using a checklist at all! It only helps to prevent headaches down the line when you're flying and helps you form good habits.
I hope you guys found this pre-flight checklist for the Mavic Air helpful, if you have anything you'd like to add leave a comment below and I'll add it to this list! Always looking for ways to improve!
