    Can you test the SG906 pro 3 max? It has obstacle avoidance, electronic stabilisation I read, so would be the perfect drone for the moment for only 154 Euro.

  2. A. Invert on January 10, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    What about the Holystone 720? Good?

  3. JADER JAVIER on January 10, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    muchas gracias por la información, muy interesante y productiva, saludos desde costa rica,,,cheers,,,,

  4. Alexys L. on January 10, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    the amount of ads in this is ridiculous

  5. daniel robles on January 10, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Is there anything better than the 720E for $300?

  6. Garry M on January 10, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    "my friends have flown this drone, so it must be a really good drone" not a recommendation as far as I’m concerned!

  7. Herbert Payson on January 10, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    Great review. SJRC F11 4k Pro got me and I will get it this holiday, best bang to me for now with very stable video footage due to EIS and 2-axis gimbal tech, and actually has real 4k camera unlike other drone advertisements. Happy Holidays 🎄🎅⛄❄️ and have a great day ahead. Thanks Captain Drone 😊👍

  8. MsStovik on January 10, 2021 at 10:57 pm

    Hi Captain Drone, so I saw your review of this drone, and I bought it.
    Unfortunately, I can’t agree with your rating, the quality of the photos and videos is terrible.
    I don’t understand at all how someone can do such false reviews, the Chinese probably pay you well, otherwise I can’t explain it, the drone is a scumbag due to the camera.

  9. Brad Shipway Harcourts Real Estate on January 10, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    I just ordered the beast sg906 pro 2! AU$240 with 2 batteries and carry bag. I ummed and ahhed on weight and fordable, I really only want for photos, birds eye and outlook.

    I thought about the jjrc x9ps and the L109, but the beast ticked enough boxes and the price thanks to AUD vs USD hit a point where I was happy to bite the bullet and commit.

  10. Kiven Bacolod on January 10, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    Nice nice nice 👏👏👏

  11. ted K on January 10, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    a word of caution regarding ordering from China.. If you don’t mind waiting a month, and the drone works fine, your good to go. However if you wait that long time and your drone arrives DOA, it doesn’t work, now the fun begins. IF you can contact the business that sold it to you and IF they agree to replace it or refund your money, you must pay shipping. Shipping is expensive !! to the tune of $45.00. Then if you are lucky to get an honest person, they will contact you and send a replacement, ( another month ). I’ve had them say they never received my shipment and stop all communication. Forget it… have no recourse. The reason China can ship to the US so cheaply is because the US Post Office ( you and I ) subsidizes them for being a third would country and pay most of the shipping. Purchase made in America if you can, second best is to purchase from an American business, let them deal with their supplier.

    Captain drone I ordered my f11 from your link. Thanks for the good and honest review

  13. Jonathan Villodas Monzon on January 10, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    I have an iPhone 7 but an I suppose to download or update anything to get the 802.11ac?

  14. nicholas the coolplayer on January 10, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    One lesson i learned from these budget drone is that you have to always be in wide open area. I flew one in my back yard and only went up about 100 ft. The thing took off on me and still can’t find it. Lost connection. Last viewable video useless. But at the park it was fun. I ordered a holystone and change my mind and went for the dji mini 2. So remember to fly wide open area only.

  16. Jeffrey Obryan on January 10, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    So I’m not finding this drone anywhere for under 3 Bengy Bills so I was going to spend 4 Bengy Bills for the 2-Axis Gimbal but that Amazon is pushing the SIMREX X20 with all the same goodies minus the distance but one battery is only going as far as one battery can last call me goofy but these 4km drones is funny to me because a 35min battery run time will get there maybe but get home I’m thinking I would have to see it so please I know you not big on the cheesey China specials but if your able to preview this SIMREX X20 that Amazon is pushing like it’s there product & a 5 stars if reviews & seam to be sold out nonstop I would really love to see your advise??
    That Capitan

  17. Christopher Bradley on January 10, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    Just received my f11 4k pro and its come from banggood with no optical flow sensor. Does that mean its a fake drone sir?

  18. Kanae Marubu on January 10, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Can someone tell me if a Drone named (smart)it is a good one for taking videos.

  19. Terry Adamo on January 10, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    You put a lot of good info into your videos – thank you for your time and effort. Only complaint: can you please reduce some of the redundant points? You’re making videos, if someone misses the info they want they can rewind or watch it over. I could sit through more of your work if you presented it more succinctly. Thank you and very good work.

  20. Seb Astian on January 10, 2021 at 11:17 pm

    Awesome video, im getting the HS720e

  21. Joe Huntley on January 10, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    The only reason people buy them for is to spy on people and exploit them on some websites they are no better then sex offenders

  22. Mark Scheepers on January 10, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Hi there please can you also put the mass that the drones can carry. Please because I am looking for a drone that can carry a mass of a kg or a little more

  23. Jose Saucedo on January 10, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Captain drone why my sjrc f11 pro 4k doesn’t have optical flow

  24. TranSoniC MLBB on January 10, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    I got the dji mavic air 2 fly more combo just for 200 dollars…. There’s no wrong about the drone seems everything works fine but bruhh 200dollars only?

  25. NYRaised on January 10, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Went to the site you listed for the SG906 pro2 and it was listed for $159. I used your promo code 51sd9rpq for $40 off and then the price jumped up to $189. Company doesn’t sound like it’s being honest.

  26. SPYSHOP on January 10, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    I broked propellers for ex5 eachine. They are like crackers and expensive. You advice me to buy original ones or i can use some from dji mini ?

  27. Pascua Piano Covers on January 10, 2021 at 11:23 pm

    why does my f11 4k pro fpv lag when I reach at 200 m??

  28. Paul Versailles on January 10, 2021 at 11:25 pm

    Hi Captain, following your recommendation I purchased a Beast 906 drone and it goes very well, however I am finding that winter is not the best time for flying and am looking at DJI Mavic mini 2 and am wondering if there is a corresponding increase in performance and quality, is it worth the money ?
    I know the app. Area where you live, I am from the Montreal area, great video, excellent quality and comparisons.

  29. Luis Rivas on January 10, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    Happy New Year Steve. I have a quick question. I have purchased a HS720E and want to know is it correct to adjust the settings to them maximum for distance and height. I was having a problem moving the drone left and right and rotation. I removed the beginner mode and adjusted the settings and it seems to have corrected the problem. Could really use your expert advise. Thanks in advance and stay safe.

  30. Arch Stanton on January 10, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    Have you done a video on upper class drone 6 motor 8 motor and flown with goggles ? and a range of miles not yards

  31. Ivan Sunara on January 10, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    Thanks for the video

  32. Guppy Galaxy on January 10, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    i love how every drone in this video was clearly based off a DJI Drone

  33. lakkchina on January 10, 2021 at 11:30 pm

  36. Drick Coc on January 10, 2021 at 11:33 pm

  37. sharon stamper on January 10, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    When you talk range- say 600 meters- does that mean it can go straight up 600 AND out 600 meters?

  38. Matthew Castiglia on January 10, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    The code for the holystone hs720E does not work 🙁

  43. cali420king on January 10, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Hey Captain!

    I want to get my first drone.
    Im not new to RC or flight sims so I have some idea of what flying it may be like.
    I would like a decent camera drone that does not require a cell phone to operate that has features like follow me, orbit, and self contained remote on a budget.
    What can you suggest to me?

  44. FunnyWorld tvg on January 10, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Thanks so much 🙃

  45. Real John f Kennedy M on January 10, 2021 at 11:43 pm

  46. MJ PC on January 10, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Great help

  47. freak4jc1 on January 10, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    So Capt what was you pick for best of these?

  48. Fred Lett on January 10, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    I recently order the Beast 3 aka the SG906 Pro Max. I’m hoping you do a review on that drone update and it’s obstacle advoidance module and any other updates. Thanks and great channel!

  49. Wile E Coyote on January 10, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    Bought the SG906 Pro 2. Flew once and it flew nice. Had issues getting satellites, would come and go. Flew in optical mode to see if it was due to interference. Drone flew up and it took off into the woods at top speed. One flight, One fly away. Gonna stick with my higher quality stuff.
    Update: actually able to pick up wifi in woods and found drone hours later. Battery still had a little life. Props are shot and rear arm snapped mounting stud on lower housing. Gimbal works and motors started. Waiting for parts. Seems to be quite a tough sucker. Hope I can also get GPS to work.
