  2. Cameron Orosco on April 28, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    Awesome video, thank so much for the great comparison. Will definitely be subscribong. I am a complete newbie to drones, but I am looking to get my FAA Part 107 license and eventually start flying drones professionally. Do you recommend any of these, or should I just go straight into something like the Inspire 2?

  3. James Bird on April 28, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    What is your opinion of FPV drones, wondering if you would do a review of them thanks again .. cheers

  4. Pok Cik Tino on April 28, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    May I know the range flight for each..??

    China can’t make pet food that doesn’t kill pets and can’t make F-P toys without leaded paint … China generally make a whole lot of poor quality drones, along with unreliable apps to control the drones …

    YET, CHINESE DJI drones are by far, the most bang for the buck in drones … and there is evidence of CCP funding, which means CCP control.

    Doesn’t someone just wonder … why are these Chinese drones, so … good?

    Is air2 different from air 2s?

    Hi Kelly — Your video is quite accurate and informative overall, but please go back and edit the part at 13:52 where you mention that the Phantom 4 Pro is limited to 30 FPS. Both t

  10. Sudburydrone on April 28, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    Bought the 2 pro a while back and never looked back 👍👍✌️

    Awesome explanation!

  15. Stevy Garcia on April 28, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    What about the DJI Spark. Did they discontinue it?

  16. Davin Cheirs on April 28, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    Wow! Thank you so much, shopping for a Christmas gift 🎁 for my son and had no idea about the differences and why the prices are so different on Amazon. Thanks a bunch!!!! Happy Holiday’s Sir!!!! 😃

    Nice collection of DJI drones Kelly. I have four of them and just added the Skydio 2 to my arsenal of drones…. Thanks for all you do for the droning community. Stay healthy and happy.

  21. Keelo Raz on April 28, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    brilliant video.

  22. Duane Reed on April 28, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    Mini 2 supports a card.Best review on Dji i’ve seen.Thanks.

  23. NR Production on April 28, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    Really informative video. Love to watch. Done subscribed 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

  24. Darren Adams on April 28, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    Great Video. I have the Mini and the range is very small. One comparison i would love to see and i wish i understood before i bought mine is how well they do in windy conditions. I live near the beach and am always getting warnings about it being to windy. So a comparison to show how well each one of these works on a windy day would be great.

  25. Mark Murungaru on April 28, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    Thanks for the great video. I’m definitely getting the Air 2

    I’m looking for a good Search and Rescue drone out of the drones you’re showing. Which one would you recommend? I’m Part 107 as well.

  28. James Bird on April 28, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    Thanks Kelly great review, helps me move closer to my decision have been into photography since I was 10 years old helped parents owned a business now I am wanting to step it up to the drone world. I had my heart set on the mavric air 2 but now thinking mavric 2 pro would be the go to drone. To me the big one is the lense hassleblad has been the camera Dad used for professional work . I am also interested in what is the best software for post editing and where does one find good audio to add to your finished product. Thanks again for such great and clear advise.

  29. Twobarpsi on April 28, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    Looks like I should get the mavic 2!

  30. Phong Quach on April 28, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    Thanks for sharing! Good info!

  31. Renato Silva on April 28, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    This guy is very good

  32. Billy Bobs on April 28, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    Dam u good at the video maken now wich would u recomend im lookn for the 500 to 1000 range

  33. Ursa Major65 on April 28, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    Good review but why use 2 cameras! It’s so annoying when it keeps switching to the camera you’re not looking into!!

  34. Donovan W. on April 28, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Really helpful info! Thank you!

  35. Common Sense Logic and Reason on April 28, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Great video. The only inaccurate thing is that the Phantom 4 Pro V2 can do 4K at 60fps.

  36. Rainbow plays. Roblox and monarchs. on April 28, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    I have a Mavic mini

  37. Timothy Cullen on April 28, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Excellent review !!!!!! FROM: TimC..

  38. Tim Moss on April 28, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Kelly thanks so much for this video this is exactly what I was looking for a side by side comparison and I was set to go with the Mavic Air 2 until you showed me that it didn’t have some sensors so hands down my choice is the Mavic 2 Pro with all sides sensors for what I will be using it for.

  39. Govi Mukunthan on April 28, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Hi, sir what do you do with the drone after review?

  40. Rainbow plays. Roblox and monarchs. on April 28, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    My Mavic mini is a good drone

  41. elison garcia on April 28, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    Great video. Thanks

  42. Abram Saltaev on April 28, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    Спасибо!

  43. K9 on April 28, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    These DJI unites are controlled by China. Reports coming in from Ukraine … China feeding Russia intel drone locations of drone operators.

  44. runeburman on April 28, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    Many thanks for yet another excellent video! Actually the upcoming version of the FlyLitchi app will add to the functionallity to both Mavic Mini and Mini 2. An evelualtion license is availible through the iOS apps Test Flight and Litchi for DJI Drones. Then the FlyLitchi app will add to the functionallity to all of these drones. Among other things that app has a very advanced system for the use of waypoints. Another consideration is the use of DJI Goggles. Currently they work only with the Phantom and the Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom, which is too bad.

  45. Aws on April 28, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    Thanks for your time, helped me a lot what to choose

  46. Stevy Garcia on April 28, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    I’d like to get the Mavic Air 2 but how annoying is it to get it registered?

  47. MasterP DJ on April 28, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    I agree, I have all of those drones and I like MA2 the best out of all of them. Can’t wait to see their new FPVish drone coming out soon. Do you have a tester already LOL

  48. Ezekiel Chery on April 28, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    The Phantom 4 Pro advance and v2 all have 4K 60fps

  49. Von Neo Gozos on April 28, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Im new to drones, but are they all foldable ??

  50. GoVideos on April 28, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Great video. Can the mini 2 be flown during windy condition?
