    Hello people!

    I am new on this... but, I just decided to buy an Inspire 1 Pro. (the X5)

    So, for you the experts... What should I have into consideration before placing the order? ie: additional SD cards, batteries, cases, cables connectors, cell data plan, tablet devices, etc.. to be covered on the first 90 days (at least).

    Please advice

    • Batteries
    • More batteries
    • upgraded battery charger
    • multiple 32 gig sd cards (you want multiple cards to change every flight, if you lose your craft and had your entire project shot on 1 memory card you lost everything!) (5 min of video is approx 3-5gig of memory)
    • 2 tablets if using 2 remote controllers
    • 2 tablet sunshades (very helpful in sunny situations)
    • 4 traffic like cones (to mark your LZ or landing zone)
    • handheld aviation radio (to talk to nearby airports and monitor crossing traffic)
    • prop balancing jig (props are supposed to be pre balanced but need improvement)
    • handheld anemometer (to check wind speed)
    • Insurance (cover your ass)
    • recommend a pelican case (the factory inspire case is temporary use because it's cheap quality)
    • tracking system (in case you lose your aircraft)
    • most importantly develop a checklist!
