Understanding pre-flight checks
Pre-flight checks are in place so that your drone can fly safely after it takes off. The drone will check its system to ensure that the the connection to your phone is stable, the battery levels are good, and the GPS signal is strong.
The first set of checks required for the Hexo+ to take off involves the communication between the app and the drone. A stable Bluetooth connectivity will allow for the drone to follow you safely and accurately.
