    It’s very good for Commercial Business the best for the money

    Would like to hear more about your pre-roof work inspection. what are your deliverables to the roofing company and software you use to produce it.

    Should I get the inspire 1 v2.0 or Mavic pro? Help pleaseeeeee

  5. Clint Hightower on May 4, 2021 at 2:08 am

    Killer job on this video dude!!! Thank you so much, I just got my first Mavic air 2 and haven’t even turned it on yet, still watching videos working up the nerve lol, but once I get the hang of this little guy, I will probably get the Mavic pro 2 and be good. Thanks again.

    I agree 100%, The Mavic 2pro is a great drone! 👍🏾

  7. G Fields on May 4, 2021 at 2:09 am

    In my opinion, every drone has its place. I own two Inspire 2s, Phantom 4 Pro, Mavic 2 Zoom, and the Mavic Air. I have used the Mavic Air many times doing roof inspections where there are overhanging tree branches. Works great

  8. Inglourious Buster on May 4, 2021 at 2:09 am

    You could use it for Commercial work, but you aren’t going make real money. Same goes for the Inspire or the Phantom.

  9. K bellanger on May 4, 2021 at 2:10 am

    Its not $1.500 new in NY or Amazon after taxes my MP2 was 1700 with one battery. Add all the extras you will need like a second set of props filters ($60-100) its well over 2 k. Gr8 video BTW

  10. Mystery Drones on May 4, 2021 at 2:11 am

    I’m glad this is being addressed. We have been using our Mavic 2 pro for commercial work with zero issues. The platform is perfect for inspections. I’m also glad DJI is recognizing this by launching the Enterprise series on basically the same platform.

  11. cjamproductions on May 4, 2021 at 2:11 am

    Nice ideas, thanks!

  12. D K on May 4, 2021 at 2:14 am

    did you use mavic 2 pro for aerial maping? which software did you use?

  13. cnnw3929 on May 4, 2021 at 2:19 am

    If you really want to do commercial work, I honestly don’t feel that the Mavic 2 Pro is going to cut it. If you are doing search and rescue, you are looking at something that costs well over $20,000.00, that can fly in any type of weather, night or day, rain or shine, and barring any wind condition over 30 miles per hour. Lockheed Martin makes such a product. Work in inspections require something that can spot even a hairline a crack from over 300′ away. A Mavic 2 (regardless of whether it’s a Zoom or Pro) will be limited on that capability, even with the Pro’s 1" sensor. So again, you get what you pay for. There is quite a bit of difference between taking a few shots of a house that’s for sale, and inspecting power lines that can stretch for several miles.

  14. A A on May 4, 2021 at 2:20 am

    I think the best way to put it the Inspire 2 is more ideal for in motion speed shots but if they aren’t moving all that much then the Inspire 2 is overkill and unnecessary to the Mavic 2 Pro. Is this true? I’ve never personally used both. 58mph on the Inspire 2 vs 31mph for Mavic 2 Pro. You can do 40mph in the Mavic 2 Pro but I think the gimbal doesn’t move when tilting which isn’t good. I think the reason why the Mavic 2 pro looks better in still objects is because the camera is tuned for shots like that whereas the Inspire 2 is tuned for speed motion shots and there is some compromise in Image Quality otherwise it would blur or something at max 58mph. The Inspire 1 I think is 67mph but from lots of research and development I think the IQ would drop when speeds Exceed 58mph to 67. Rather than give people all those details they just find out on their own otherwise if Everyone realized Inspire 2 is for "speed" that if you don’t do high-speed tracking or far distance we have to be there now type behavior or else people wouldn’t buy it as much in sales wise. The quicker it is to get in position the more flight time there is available to get the script shooting completed and perfect than, I’m running out of battery we can’t spend too much time here as it takes a while to get to the next waypoint. The best example would be the Spark. It takes super long to get to places. You only get say a 15 minute window to work with and 1/3 of the time or more is just getting into position. A good way to just show people the Mavic 2 Pro isn’t shit is to show them a video and photographs of what it can do before the work has begun. Instead of taking out of your backpack, put the Mavic 2 Pro in some Professionally organized briefcase and wear impressive clothing to make up for the difference of lack of size.

    your joking about m2pro right its a awsome drone

  16. Duke Bozikowski on May 4, 2021 at 2:23 am

    How did you get into roof inspections? I have my part 107 and I would love to make money with my drone.

  17. Wayne Allen on May 4, 2021 at 2:24 am

    Would you say that a mavic air 2 would be good to start a commercial business standards?

  18. David Kasper on May 4, 2021 at 2:25 am

    As I remember, the battery for the Mavic 2 Pro controller lasts for about 1.5 hours, and is not replaceable. So even if you have lots of drone batteries and keep them charging, you will still need to stop flying when the controller battery runs out. I guess that’s when you take a lunch break while it re-charges, Not a very smart design .

  19. JJ Hernandez on May 4, 2021 at 2:26 am

    Nailed it on the respect part, for the not tech savvy bigger is always better.

  20. Pixel Plant on May 4, 2021 at 2:26 am

    You are totally right! Mavic 2 pro can do excellent job, even in the fields of video production where we specialise on. The point though, is that clients believe, as you said, "the bigger, the better". So between two competitors, probably the one with the Inspire2 will get the job. On the other hand, if you buy and use an Inspire 2 with all its equipment (filters, monitors, lenses, etc.) then the cost of the video should be bigger and i dont think clients will like it either. Also Inspire2 has no ocusync systems. meaning that if you fly far away or close to electricity pylons or telephony antennas you may lose it. Mavic 2 pro has ocusync and, thus, it is much more secure i believe.

  21. Stephen Madeley on May 4, 2021 at 2:26 am

    great video, how much do you or your company charge per hour, or per job?

  22. hblee79 on May 4, 2021 at 2:27 am

    Great job BK✌🏽awesome videos , now I know the M2 Pro is a great drone..
    Thanks 😉🙏🏼👍🏽 (B.McLennon)

  23. factory2590 on May 4, 2021 at 2:28 am

    This "equipment should impress" thing got old in photography. If you have a good portfolio, any designer that isn’t a hack won’t bat an eye if you use a shoebox to get the images.

  24. Bill14886 on May 4, 2021 at 2:29 am

    Great Info Billy. I have the MP and Im seriously thinking about upgrading to the M2Pro , Im not into color grading yet or editing for that matter but Im sure in time I will be. Im so on the fence on what one to get M2Pro or Zoom and not even sure if I should even bother to upgrade yet. If the Phantom 5 was coming soon Id wait if It had more worth while features . Zoom and 20Mp pics and 1 " sensor. Ahh still stuck in limbo. What do you think if you have the time to reply?

  25. Darrin Gallant on May 4, 2021 at 2:31 am

    Funny how perception is reality more than not but as a business you do what sells. I like the way you introduce a smaller drone to the client, waiting till you have some trust first. Personally, in this scenario, I liked the shots from the M2P best. I’m not in the biz but would like to try it part-time at some point so I appreciate your insight Billy. Liked & Subbed.

  26. Drew Youngs on May 4, 2021 at 2:31 am

    Take you seriously is a lame comment… Who cares what "The Average Person" thinks. Use your swagger and don’t blow the job..

  27. Pilotx86 on May 4, 2021 at 2:33 am

    It’s not the size; it’s the motion of the ocean.

    Your shirt rocks!

  29. kevin fortner on May 4, 2021 at 2:34 am

    just opened up my mavic 2 today

  30. Jamie Bonnett on May 4, 2021 at 2:36 am

    You say that you like to under expose your shots slightly, I’d recomend slightly overexposing as when you bring shaddows up you get a lot of noise although this doesn’t happen if you drop the highlights.

  31. Boo Boo on May 4, 2021 at 2:37 am

    Great vid BK! I am a commercial pilot and have done work on multi-million dollar projects. I used the Inspire 2 on a 1/2 billion (yes billion) dollar construction project that was over 500 acres in size. It was great. Impressive to the client, redundancy, safe, easily handled 20-30mph winds and even flew on days where gusts were 40mph (I had to get job done), and it was easy for my spotter to see over 2500′ away. Well, I sold it and am using the Mavic now. Much easier to handle. Quieter, etc..all the reasons BK mentions. I’m ready for my clients to ask the question about the little tiny drone. My answer will be "we use the best tool for the job." If I do another project like the big one again, I’ll buy the latest Inspire or Matrice as needed. But I will never let go of the Mavic. It’s a great done.

  32. Warsame Adam on May 4, 2021 at 2:38 am

    Unless a drone has a better camera then larger size is useless. M2P is the best in class. I’m planning to map entire city with M2P

  33. MERAK SL on May 4, 2021 at 2:39 am

    mavic 2 pro is a semi-pro drone … even with Hasselblad camera … we will see in summer after corona in the mountains what it will do

  34. Ramon Yonson on May 4, 2021 at 2:39 am

    That is my favourite drone I hope I have dji mavic 2pro ☺️

  35. regular weed on May 4, 2021 at 2:41 am

    I would love some information on how to get self started with home inspection or any home or retail usage , I have a mavic 2 pro.
    Edit – I also have some disposable income right now to possibly acquire the inspire 2 , im looking for thoughts on all of this. Im at the point where im not sure if im supposed to start my own business or freelance or what with this.

  36. Tyler Bowen on May 4, 2021 at 2:42 am

    won’t see a mavic 2 pro on a professional movie set… literally just watched a movie set use a mavic 2 pro casting a show on indian rocks beach in st pete Florida. dude is not a reliable source with his information. watch else where

  37. Larry Gaudreau on May 4, 2021 at 2:45 am

    Hi Billy. Nice info. I’m just getting started in DRONE commercial work. As a Private Pilot this is a great way to make money on the side until I retire from a HUGE communication company. I DIG everything flying. I have some in flight videos from the Cessnas I fly up on my YT channel. Let me if your interested in watching. Thanks for the info Larry

  38. DelBoy TV on May 4, 2021 at 2:46 am

    Great video! I have the Mavic Pro 2 and still getting to grips with it as it’s my first ever drone! Thanks for the upload

  39. The Fashion Cold Wars on May 4, 2021 at 2:46 am

    The Mavic Pro 2 hands-down.
    Shoot Panoramic • best natural conditions • monitor weather• be patient • Shoot flat • Shoot Raw • learn Lightroom • Pull your color from all that RAW data = an image to rival all others….

  40. DnA BnL on May 4, 2021 at 2:47 am

    This is an excellent "insider" perspective on the applicability of the M2P for commercial use. Thanks for confirming that I am going with the right model!

  41. yinshantang on May 4, 2021 at 2:51 am

    I’m glad that you are now totally sold to Mavic Billy

  42. Dillon Nack on May 4, 2021 at 2:52 am

    Love this video. You should make more about the Dji Mavic 2 pro. I’m looking into upgrading from the mavic air. Also should make more videos about commercial work. They’re very useful.

  43. Aaron Arce on May 4, 2021 at 2:52 am

    I have the mavic zoom and it takes 48 megapixel stills isn’t that good enough for commercial work tell me what you think

  44. u-mit -box on May 4, 2021 at 2:52 am

    You Talk 2much

  45. Tundra Whisperer on May 4, 2021 at 2:53 am

    Oh…size matters then! 😂👍 joking aside, great video info.

  46. yinshantang on May 4, 2021 at 2:55 am

    You can bring the Spirit to show to your client but you actually fly the M2P for the job

  47. Joe Bushor on May 4, 2021 at 2:56 am

    Billy, great video as always. I’m curious, what formats and media do you use when delivering the photos and or video to your clients?

  48. Stephen and Janaka on May 4, 2021 at 2:58 am

    Absolutely you can! Awesome review!! Sending some sub love from Toronto Canada 🇨🇦

  49. TRUTHKEEPER on May 4, 2021 at 3:00 am

    You are one of hundred man, who s telling truth about the Mavic pro 2 and zoom – better to buy the pro2. You did a nice Video, thumbs up and abo – go on like this !!

  50. Avean on May 4, 2021 at 3:00 am

    Whats crazy is that even Mavic 1 got passed for a real estate photography job i got. The guy was a professional photographer asking for help for an aerial photo. So i was really nervous showing him the photos but he was amazed and loved it. I shot in brackets mode AEB and made HDR photos out of it and graded it in post. But yeah, with Mavic 2 Pro you definetely shouldnt have a problem doing work.
