So i have been asked a couple times and I have seen multiple people ask for one from others. Since being on the road and flying in nature rather than my home flying field or front yard I have realized the importance of a preflight. I am flying more and more over water which i am a chicken about and I am prepared for a failure and the rig going down, but i would rather that not happen. So this is how I try and minimize the risk to my rig and my own safety

here is my Preflight Checklist for my particular rig, it might be of use to others.... (maybe)

AP XL Y6 Preflight Check List
Check All Prior to Flight:
 6 Prop Adapter Nuts
 6 Props for chips, dings, balancing tape, white lines or any signs of weakness
 All screws on the motor mounts including the 4 screws in the motor
 Front Arm Folding Screws
 Mounting screws for AG-550n Gimbal
 Set Screws on pulley (Tilt and Roll)
 Servo Wires for Gimbal Servos
 Debris in motor Cans
 Voltage on Flight Pack and FPV Pack
 Inverted V FPV antenna SMA connections
 Satellite wires from Rx
 Turn on Tx (check voltage)
 Check Tx Switches (Gear 0, flaps 2, F Mode 1, D/R 0, Throttle 0% )
 Plugin Flight Pack (Check voltage again)
 Wait for no Red Flashes and Green Flash
 Plugin FPV pack
