Virgin Flying Site Checklist....

So --- you pull up on site. You're alone - your medium range FPV rig/tripod in tow. This rig and GS has been maidened and tested at your "home" site to 3km although no1 on RCG knows this (woops, did I say that out loud??). You have no automated RTH capability nor do you have a lost-model locator. This will be your 1st and likely last time at this site. You have exactly an hour to burn. In addition to your rig you have these items at your disposal:

1) laptop : wireless card (internet access)
2) Blackberry PDA with full saturation and internet
3) your vehicle
4) binocs

You grab your FPV field-kit... check all the batteries for the gear and backup batteries. You are good to go.

What do you do before

a) setup
b) launch

and what do/can you do during the flight to make sure your chances of success are in your favor? What things do you look for?
