    Thanks for the nice tips👍. But when you use the lights then the weight of the drone exceeds 249 gramm does that have consequences ? Greetings from The Netherlands🌷

  2. Keith Stewart on August 11, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Impressed!!! When my first mini arrived, no problem. When my mm2 arrived I was sad until my friend "Justin/Just in time" sent me I pad pro 11. I always use my range extenders because it helps maintain a strong signal when often it will glitch otherwise. Huge difference with 60 hours 500+ miles…
    So Far

  3. Aj89 on August 11, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    Thankyou for sharing the links to the dudes shop.. his things are Awsome 🥳👍

  4. 17 on August 11, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Is there an acessory to shoot down birds in the sky?

  5. Will Lowden on August 11, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Don’t buy yagi it’s not even a yagi Uda antenna and does nothing other than add a placebo effect

  6. Labu Labi on August 11, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Urgh I hate when youtuber make review video but not show how it’s use at all🙄

  7. Skii Visualz on August 11, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    The fact that you said to make sure to CHECK that your drone is compatible with your android device shows exactly why i subbed to your channel, i’ve got a mini 2.. 3 months ago my galaxy s9 USB port wasn’t working….my drone did not work with any of the other mobile devices in my home…i had to go and buy a new xiaomi phone to be able to use this drone……which was WORTH the buy that phone is a beast…i like that you give heads up because sometimes you get so excited you won’t even think lol…if i had saw this vid before my dji mini 2 purchase i would’ve avoided that…

  8. hostiaya on August 11, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    Is there an umbrella for the mini2?? I live in North Spain (Bilbao)

  9. WVOEX West Virginia Outdoor Extreme on August 11, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    The prop holger for the mini 1 is a rubberband….lol

  10. Avet Reels on August 11, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Great video! Regarding range extenders on the Mini SE (no Occusinc), they work VERY well. I purchased a kit that came with both Yagi antennas like shown in the video, and parabolic reflectors. This kit is designed to use either/or, or at the same time. In testing them individually and together, I have learned a few things. I havnt seen much benefit in using both, but the Yagi’s have proven their worth so far, and I use them every time I fly the SE. Because the Mini 2 uses Occusinc rather than enhanced wifi like the SE and Mavic Mini, it will have better connection in wifi congested areas, and probably no point in using them within LOS flights, unless the area has an exceptional amount of wifi interference.. But, with the enhanced wifi Mini’s, the Yagi’s drastically improve signal at LOS range in congested wifi areas, almost on par with Occusinc, as long as the antennas are pointed at the drone.
    As for range on my SE with the Yagi’s, its great! I often fly out over the Pacific Ocean to get shots of marine wildlife, great white sharks, dolphins whales etc. I use a VERY powerful strobe that is visible to about a mile and a half in daytime, and 4 miles after sunset. I routinely fly out about a mile, maintaining LOS, searching for subjects, and havnt seen even a flicker of a lost signal using the Yagi’s. The same distance at the same spot without them, I will get sporadic signal loss, especially when I turn the drone in different directions or fly below 50 feet. They simply work, and Im sure they will extend range on the Mini 2 as well, but Occusinc will already maintain connection farther than your battery will hold out in uncongested areas. However, they will improve the Mini 2 connection strength in very high interference areas around industrial areas and cities, with the only caveat being they have to be pointed right at the drone to be most effective. The bare wifi/Occusinc antennas radiate a 360 donut shaped signal in all directions, with the output being the strongest toward the flat front and rear of the antenna. The Yagi projects a narrow focused beam in one direction in addition to the donut shaped radiation. Parabolic reflector range extenders reflect the energy from the rearward half of the donut to the front, leaving a degraded dead spot behind and to the sides, with the signal radiated in a wide, more powerful beam in front. A parabolic behaves more like a shotgun providing a spread out beam, powerful at close range. A Yagi behaves more like a sniper rifle with a powerful focused beam with more penetrating power at a distance, but with the added benefit of retaining the original 360 degree donut shaped signal radiant. A good thing to have handy in the gear bag just in case.

    Nd filters are not cheap☹️

  12. Macs RC on August 11, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    Who actually needs beginners flying lessons for a Mavic mini??

  13. Philip Moore on August 11, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    After i used the scotty case my mini 2 said gimbal motor overloaded. I think the fine plastic dust in the case got stuck in the gimbal. Compressed air seemed to fix it but I’m going to blow & wash the case b4 using it again & also make a hole near the gimbal area of the case to see how it is positioned inside the case.

  14. Zed Nine on August 11, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    There’s another youtube guy in Hawaii who does range tests, and with clear-ish line of sight, he flew his mini2 three miles away and still had control as well as near perfect video communication back to the phone. Perhaps the range extender is helpful if you have obstacles between you and the drone…?

  15. Stef Wälti on August 11, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Great Tipps! Cheers a lot from Switzerland 🇨🇭🙏🏼👏🏼☀️

  16. Inzamum-Ul-Huq Nirnoy on August 11, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    Need a suggest, best backpack name tell me, like i can carry my camera, drone,laptop & accessories.

  17. stranger penguin on August 11, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    My friend told me to catch his drone and i was kinda scared that the propeller were gonna eat my fingers so he catches it him self yeah i know you supposed to catch it on the bottom

  18. Keanu flips on August 11, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    Just putting it out there if you have a samsung only a samsung before you freak out because the dji fly app is not in the google play store go and search it on the galaxy store

  19. Edgar Luna on August 11, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Cool stuff. Imma go ahead and cop one of those night lights. They seem pretty handy and slim

  20. Rodger Hunter on August 11, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Thank for the vid. The strobe has to be visible for 3 statue miles I think I will pick up the Scott case not worth making a Instagram account for many many reasons but I digress
    Thanks again for the info

  21. American Man TV on August 11, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    Just picked up a mini 2, I instantly learned I needed the tablet adapter, so I knew there must be other must haves also. Good video, I like the honest opinions of each item, and not implying that someone would need to go out and buy all of these right away, or ever.

  22. Lumpiang Shanghai on August 11, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    Where can i buy gun attachment for my mini 2

    For research purposes ofcourse

  23. BarryVideos44 on August 11, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    You did say Freewell

  24. D-Rock534 on August 11, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    got a question for u sir, whenever i go to record in 4k from the second i push the record button the screen freezes until im done recording then it goes back to live view with no issues. It still records and saves in to my sd, i just cant view what i recorded until i put the sd card into my laptop, If i shoot in 2.7 it works fine. Not until i choose 4k to record, thats when i go to hit the record button it freezes until im done recording. I use a samsung galaxy a53. If u can give me any tips to fix this issue, that would be awesome. I have called dji customer support, and they were USELESS. All they told me to do was uninstall the app and reinstall it. Clearly it didnt work lol. So if u need anymore information from me, just hmu, thank u so much.

  25. JimzAuto on August 11, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    16:28 ‘hand catch your drone’ should have 2 prices- $0 for proper hand-land, ~$600 for the ‘doc in a box’ bill for getting fingers cut 🙂 I’f folks are gonna ‘catch’ their drone I’d recommend slipping a glove on first. And yes I’ve hand-landed my mini-2.

  26. michael Weeks on August 11, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    I highly disagree out of that whole kit only two are usable. Correct me if I’m wrong

  27. M D on August 11, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    I really appreciate your comparison of the ND filters.

    I’ve heard reviews of both but it seems the reviewers were not doing a comparison but just talking about the one they bought and saying how great it is.

  28. Keith Knittel on August 11, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    GIVEAWAY! Giving away my Scotty Makes Stuff cases! They are nice hard cases, but I prefer using my backpack or messenger bag for storing my drone. Follow me on Instagram and leave a comment on this video to be entered to win! Will announce the winner in my next video! Thanks for watching!

  29. Alberto Campos on August 11, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    “If you wanna go full dad mode” 💀😂
    Appreciate the video! Just purchased my mini 2 so I’m excited to get out there.

  30. MVMTV on August 11, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    awesome accessories, I have some of those you showed, But I also use Lights and strobe light for my Mavic mini, because of the weight factor I don’t put them on the mini 2.

  31. Mark Kenney on August 11, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    This video would have benefited from some b-roll of the products in use. Good recommendations otherwise

  32. Headbanger's Trail on August 11, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    Does the landing pad fit in the Mini 2 Fly More Combo bag?

  33. SoaR milo on August 11, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    Range is fine .. 3 miles more than enough

  34. Mike Caffyn on August 11, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    Prop guards?

  35. tomchurchhill on August 11, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    I don‘t like the trend of youtubers repeating things over and over again just to extend the length of their videos. The content is okay, nothing new if you follow similar channels, but could have been said in less than half the time.

  36. Ivan on August 11, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Nd filters and camera sunshield are MUST (sd cards, batteries and backpack are not even accessory 😅)
    Nd filter for cinematic blur, sunshield to minimise lans flare and to protect gimbal if crashed. Nothing else matters

  37. Airhead Bit on August 11, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    Missing tablet holder: $8 comes with USB C to A short cord, rock solid on my huge Galaxy S4 TAB. Didn’t say the weight of the strobe, I have one that clips on the bottom of the MM2 and can be seen from a mile in sun light, no crap sticking on the MM2 body.

  38. Λευτέρης Τζελέπης on August 11, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    nice video! greedings from Athens, Greece!

  39. Steviegtr on August 11, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    Brilliant video. Thanks

  40. Leo Hall on August 11, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    What about prop guards to fly the drone?

  41. Thargor on August 11, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    I’m a fpv pilot but no nothing about cameras…. need watch nd filter vid

  42. TNRonin on August 11, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    Got my Scotty’s cases today. The drone holster does not fit and therefore you can’t close that latch. The battery case latch won’t and the battery pullers don’t. The remote case barely fits. Empty it closes easy with the remote it’s a squeeze down to latch. Not recommended since it costs around $70 to return. $110 wasted. Sigh.

    To their credit they replied to my email.
    "Sorry to hear you’re unhappy with your order.
    The drone case is easy to help you with. It’s been designed to be used without the gimbal protector as the props and the case do the protecting."

    Dunno if I like the gimble exposed but it does look like it is protected in the case. Sent them a vid of the battery charger cover issue.

    Great video , I do have a question regarding the landing gear I bought . I purchased the sled type landing gear , it won’t come off without peeling the bottom plate . Is this an error ? How do I take it off without damaging the plate on the bottom ?

  45. Lesego Ditlhake on August 11, 2022 at 8:45 pm

    What’s the name of country & city on 12:18 🥺❤️

  46. MVMTV on August 11, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    ty thumbs up, new sub.

  47. LingonVaxi on August 11, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    I would recommend Peter McKinnons bag, it’s still in development but it’s really the best for a serious photographer 🙂

  48. Jose Goldner on August 11, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    What accessory should I buy to be able to fly my drone indoors without losing signal and not becoming unstable? I have the DJI Mini 2

  49. 2ambientarchitecture on August 11, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    would you use any filters for drone photogrammetry mapping?

  50. Jesse on August 11, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    Would be nice to know if the range extender helps with interference from trees and structures
