  5. Calibrate drone compass and IMU(if necessary).
  6. Complete In-Flight Safety Precautions. (RTH settings, C2 link loss fail safes, Home point calibration, etc.)
  7. Help Promote a Strong Signal between Drone and Controller. (Maintain VLOS - Visual line of sight with the drone at all times with little to no obstructions that could affect the C2 link - controller and drone link).
  8. Maintain readiness to take manual control of the drone throughout the mission.
