Flight Plan

As in flying full scale aircraft there are four things, missing any one of which, you are sure to crash:

1. Reference to the Horizon. You must know your attitude at all times. (Camera, Video Downlink, Display, light of day, weather, etc...)
2. Power. (Motor, ESC, Prop, etc...)
3. Ability to control the aircraft. (Radio, servos, control surfaces, etc...)
4. Juice. (Battery Charge)

Always plan your flights so you do not loose or run out of any one of the above until your intended time/place of landing.
