How to safely test out a drone


Hello everyone! I have been trying to test my drone, but when I screw up when flying it crashes and destroys the propellers. How would I test out flying a drone in a safe manner?

Prop guards are helpful, but it shouldn’t keep crashing. If it’s a DJI drone, ave you tried recalibrating the compass and EMU?
What type is it?

Take of the props, and start the motors.
Now “grab” the motors one by one to feel if the direction of rotation is correct, and that it reacts in the right way when the attitude changes (motor winds up, when motor goes low, motor winds down/brakes when motor goes up).


I have recalibrated the compass and EMU a bunch of times now. What do you mean by type? Here is a picture of it:
