I recently got to shoot a bit in Elands Bay on the West Coast for the weekend. It's small town with a vast amount of space with potato farms, rooibos tea farms and a beautiful valley that feeds water for the farming of the land.
I stayed at Vensterklip for a couple of days. The place is very equipped, although I was out shooting with my DJI Phantom most of the time. Every morning I started packing, with the same checklist in mind of what I needed to take along.
On the Saturday I forgot the cable to connect the remote with my iPad because I use the same cable to charge my iPhone and had to drive all the way back to fetch it.
This made me realise there’s a checklist to be made when you go out to fly around and get some aerial shots and videos. So I put together a checklist that I think you will find useful when going out. This way you’ll always have all the gear packed, ready for your flying time.
I now have it with me on every adventure.
