    Thank you

  2. Meta Music Man on September 7, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Thank you for putting together all of your videos on drone flying and vlogging. I watched several of your videos and created my first one yesterday spotlighting my first flight of my DJI mini 2 and brand new GoPro Hero 9. I attempted integrating some of your tips. Definitely has a learning curve. You make it look so simple.

  3. Seluila Drone on September 7, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    It’s me who thank you

  4. MRW Channel on September 7, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Thank you for certificate of UA.

    Can you tell me better buy DJI Mini 3 or DJI Mavic Air 2s for beginner like me.
    My drone now is SJRC F11S for trained me to flight.
    My need is:
    1. Flight Stability against Wind (my drone stands in Wind class 7 but still not stability as hope).
    2. I always like Sunrise and Sunset, so need minimum illumination.
    3. Its my last decade for retire of my work and start become to a photographer (cause watch your channel..😁)

    Thank you for your time!
    Gbu amen

  6. RONALD RICHARD on September 7, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    Greetings i call you prof

  9. Phonamana on September 7, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    Excellent video and tips Jeven Dovey! I know this question isn’t related to your video but, I am interested in buying my first drone. The Mavic 2 in the U.S. has dropped $210 and sells for $789 now. The Mavic 2s is selling for for $1299. Both come with the combo kit of the three batteries and extra propellers. I see the camera is better on the 2s. Would you recommend I spend the extra money on the 2s or should I buy the Mavic 2? Maybe I should just wait for the Mavic 3 to come down a little in price? I originally was hoping the Mavic 3 was going to be the same price around $1,000 or $1,200 but, it was a sticker shock for me to see it costing $3k with the 3 battery combo kit. Maybe you have a video link comparing the 2 and the 2s? Please share it if you do and I will watch it. Thanks for all of your tips! I enjoy watching your videos!

    As a pro photographer who’s navigating the world for the first time by drone with a Mavic 3, your tips, tricks and advice are invaluable. Thank you! 😀

  26. capulazza on September 7, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    newbie question – what’s your take on fixing an apple airtag to a mavic mini drone in case you loose it and want help retreiving it?

  27. Kaptagn on September 7, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    I am definitely a hand catcher and releaser haha.

  28. Name on September 7, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    Just FYI, uploading to Youtube counts as a business activity with the FAA, regardless as to whether you personally are monetizing your videos.

  29. Алексей Жаров on September 7, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    Hi Jeven from Russia. Thank you for that brilliant overview. I have started learning drone flying with your videos and still find a lot of useful insights in it.

  30. Ardin roy on September 7, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    Good tips. 👍

  31. Air, Land and Sea Video photography on September 7, 2022 at 9:08 pm

    While I’m not new to photography, I am new to using drones. Your videos have been my number one source of gathering information to learn this new type of capturing images. Thank you for all you do! Your videos are excellent!

  32. Joe Trips - رحلات جو on September 7, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    Very good video thank you 🙏🏻

  33. Muddy Ruttzz on September 7, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    Good stuff, thanks Jeven. Every time I’ve been to Trona Pinnacles wind was about 40 mph.

  34. Landon Pettrey on September 7, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    Made the "Have a good launch pad" mistake. I got a bunch of dust in my Mini 2 gimbal and had it freak out in the air. Just blew on it and it kinda worked for now, but on the DJI forum it said to get compressed air for what they use for computers to blow it out good. Someone said just do it lightly though because those electronics are soooo small and brittle.

  35. Cache Pilll on September 7, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    how did you mount the controller to the handlebars in the beginning

  36. Austin He on September 7, 2022 at 9:17 pm

    this is a longest video I watched on youtube for tutorials. I made it to the end, but also thank you for making this to the end.

  37. Gino Croes on September 7, 2022 at 9:17 pm

    Great tips👍

  38. VideoPat on September 7, 2022 at 9:18 pm

    Great Video. thank you very much!

  39. IthinkthereforeIam OrsoIthought on September 7, 2022 at 9:18 pm

  40. HJL JR on September 7, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    God bless you sir

  41. Viktor Gombos on September 7, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    Thank You!

  42. GAME#3810 on September 7, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    I think I’m gonna crash my HS175D maybe a month after getting it

  43. RezaQin on September 7, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    You should also check which state you’re in. I have a Mini 2 and you do not need to register or get the 107 to fly. However, I did register mine as I am going to a state that requires it, and I will be getting my 107 eventually.

  44. Richard Morschel on September 7, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    Awesome, clear and really helpful. Thanks for all the tips. I am new to this world!

  45. CyberWolf gr on September 7, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    Flyer ??? not a pilot ?

  46. Bill Wells on September 7, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    Thanks..A lot of good, useful information. Finally found someone who I can understand. you You are special! (I Go way back using video, beginning at Knoe-Tv where we were using 2-inch tape and splicing with sharp razor blades. Then,3-quarter (b/w), then, color. Etc. .

  47. MeowX Squared on September 7, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    Idk but should also watch out for birds, a flock of birds just started chasing and flying around my drone yesterday and its probably one of the most heart stopping moments

  48. Fifciuu on September 7, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    Why shouldn’t I start the flight from my hand or finish it like that?

  49. Marcin on a Trip on September 7, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    Great video 👍

  50. Lex Robins on September 7, 2022 at 9:29 pm
