    You’re rarely using a drone and yet you’re reviewing it 😂 DJI must reconsider sending you drones in the future

  2. WEIRD SHOT on November 7, 2021 at 9:38 am

    AIR2S still top drone for a better price 🙂 great review!

  3. johnny five o on November 7, 2021 at 9:40 am

    great review and thanks for not kissing DJI’s ass

  4. Tony Antonio on November 7, 2021 at 9:40 am

    This was brought to you by Ford!

  5. Conner Productions on November 7, 2021 at 9:40 am

    If you’re doing strictly aerial landscape stuff (like establishing shots), there’s no point in getting this. Heck, the mini 2 is still the best one in my opinion for simple shots like that.

  6. The Walking Camera on November 7, 2021 at 9:40 am

    Great review! Think I’d rather get the Air 2s

  7. Philipp on November 7, 2021 at 9:41 am

    I really appreciate the honest opinion and conclusion! Good Job guys!

  8. Cesar Munante on November 7, 2021 at 9:43 am

    Isn’t that false advertising? That’s ten minutes less than advertised. That’s a lot

  9. Amruth Ranjan on November 7, 2021 at 9:43 am

    I’m sticking to my mavic 2 pro. Cause I don’t think it’s worth upgrade! Specially the pricing of the drone is way to high for the features they’re offering…

  10. GO_LIVE PRODUCTIONS on November 7, 2021 at 9:43 am

    Well time for a upgrade for me i may get the 2999 combo I can’t justify getting the 5k tho

  11. Jason Levi on November 7, 2021 at 9:43 am

    Interesting and very informative review. I’m a professional photographer/cinematographer and am very happy with Autel Evo 2 Pro with its Sony 1" sensor camera for my personal use. It has an 8x zoom (4x lossless), adjustable f/2.8-f/11, 20mp, ISO range in Photo 100-12800, and video 100-6400. All in one camera no need for a second dedicated telephoto camera. Also shoots 4K, 6K, and 8K plus interchangeable gimbal cameras including the Infrared. For film aerial photography I use the Alta X with its 35 lbs payload. But that’s another scenario.

  12. Olender on November 7, 2021 at 9:43 am

    Landon has seemed so familiar somehow, I figured it out today, Howard Wolowitz from Big Bang Theory!

  13. BlairAir on November 7, 2021 at 9:47 am

    "I’m going to start my STARTwatch" Wot? When you stop it, what is it called?

  14. ade mola on November 7, 2021 at 9:48 am

    Salt water is a no no go area

  15. AFRICA TRAVEL BRO PRO channel on November 7, 2021 at 9:48 am

    He gets it for FREE but wants you to buy it. Is this really an honest review? 🤔. Think about it.

  16. fruitstick78 on November 7, 2021 at 9:49 am

    Awesome specs but I agree, for me it’s not worth upgrading my Mavic 2 Pro for making company promo videos etc. I think the 4K 120 and longer flight time would be perfect for filming surfing videos. Would get some really sick slowmo and allow longer loitering time between waves 😎🤙🏻

  17. SlimSimTV on November 7, 2021 at 9:49 am

    Crew: lets use a cool car and got to a dope location for the next video…
    Parker: hell yeah! I am driving!!!

  18. Beenthere Donethat on November 7, 2021 at 9:50 am

    Thank you for the honest review!

  19. SAVAGE SHUTTER on November 7, 2021 at 9:51 am

    there hasn’t been one review where the reviewer was amped about this product lol every single person I seen review is like a robot …they dropped the ball on’s just too expensive ..majority of videographers throw drone footage in just to mix it up ..

  20. Ivan Eberle on November 7, 2021 at 9:52 am

    OK, there’s the commonly known ILC size called Micro Four-Thirds, and then there’s DJI-speak 4/3" sensor. What is the physical size of the DJI sensor, and the diagonal in 16:9 in millimeters for comparison

  21. Raymond Chat1 on November 7, 2021 at 9:53 am

    The flight time will make all the difference for taking hyper lapses.

  22. SUTV on November 7, 2021 at 9:59 am

    Excellent review

  23. Dileep Kandula on November 7, 2021 at 10:00 am

    Dude, this is a well-editted video. Enjoyed watching it till the end.

  24. Beats Of A Sleepwalker on November 7, 2021 at 10:06 am

    This place looks froggin unreal like a big time Hollywood movie – Great Video !!

  25. Consistency Wins on November 7, 2021 at 10:08 am

    I kinda think they should’ve given it to someone else in the FTF team to review, no offense but out of all of the reviews out there, this is a pretty lazy one granted the firmware gave them the equivalent to a Mavic Pro 2. Maybe it’s a good review for those looking to get into drones for their first time but not for the more experienced or people that use them professionally.

  26. Facu Manuel on November 7, 2021 at 10:10 am

    5K? I mean it’s beautiful, but my Air 2s kick asses for that price.

  27. Loud&Clear on November 7, 2021 at 10:10 am

    Your conclusion was pretty much in line with my thoughts on it. Seems like a marginal step up at an insane price hike, essentially just for pro res. Yes, the less compressed files would be great, but really that’s all it’s worth. I have no problem grading footage from the Mavic 2 Pro or the Air 2S because as long as you expose within a stop or so, the codecs are just fine. Drone shots just aren’t shots that typically need a lot of dynamic latitude in post.

  28. NorthActual on November 7, 2021 at 10:13 am

    those shoes are ruined, bet

  29. Mr. Jeddy on November 7, 2021 at 10:15 am

    Parker is getting better and bestest day goes by love to see such a things that you really drive us to buy.

  30. Tyler Hansen on November 7, 2021 at 10:15 am

    I think a lot of us would appreciate a quality comparison between max bitrate H265 and ProResHQ. They want an extra $2,000 for what I’m guessing is a marginal quality increase. But who knows, I might be wrong.

  31. Stephen Browne on November 7, 2021 at 10:15 am

    Thanks for being honest and saying it’s not worth the upgrade. I feel like it is too hindered at the moment and not worth moving on from the M2P. Not until these go on sale sometime in the future or they up the capabilities through firmware upgrades.

    I do think I will get the Mavic 3 Fly more combo one day, but the Cine is not worth it. With increased bit rates on the H.265 and the improving performance for editing HEVC and H264, the benefit of Prores being easy to edit doesn’t mean so much these days.

    Not to mention the extra ND filters packaged with it aren’t very useful for almost everyone (ND64 in snow perhaps). As a long exposure with the darker ND filters would be hard with tiny movements from wind, even when they are small, they won’t get used much by people.

    I do hope they make the new remote controller backwards compatible, because using my phone to fly is getting old fast.

  32. Saksham Prajapati on November 7, 2021 at 10:15 am

    I think you are promoting dji products only 🙄🙄

  33. Baptiste S. on November 7, 2021 at 10:15 am

    Honest review 👍

  34. OVAFilm on November 7, 2021 at 10:17 am

    Go to hell DJI

  35. Ardila TV on November 7, 2021 at 10:17 am

    Im agree….so expensive… DJI becomes de apple of drones!

  36. ShaneMartinPhoto on November 7, 2021 at 10:17 am

    Awesome video and very informative. Watched this first before Peter McKinnon and don’t think I need to watch his now lol. I use the Mavic Pro 2 for real estate and was on the fence about the need for the price jump. Not looking I’m going to and ill wait till the next one!

  37. AEROVISUALES on November 7, 2021 at 10:19 am

    Great drone, thanks for sharing. If you let me as professional, give DJI a suggestion, we (professionals) are still waiting for a stand alone video RX. Simple device that would be a huge add on for those who do live TV. For DJI should be a super simple device to build, just video RX with lipo battery, robust signal and HDMI/SDI output. Thanks

  38. Mike Edwards on November 7, 2021 at 10:19 am

    Forget the footage from the drone. Let’s talk about the footage from the cameras used to film everything. Looked amazing! Great work Landon BTW.

  39. HorrorPills on November 7, 2021 at 10:19 am

    I just watched an Parker Walbeck AD on a Parker Walbeck video.

  40. MarkyX Monleon on November 7, 2021 at 10:20 am

    So nice…so I wish..Subs for you.

  41. Arvizas TIPSLT - Gameplay, Tech & Reviews on November 7, 2021 at 10:20 am

    Great ranger jeep! Also liked video about drone flying from dji company!

  42. gym_shark918 On IG on November 7, 2021 at 10:26 am

    NICE review👏🏿. Majority of reviewers got this drone for free, would never give a negative review and are basically making a dJI commercials trying to get u to break the bank. This video is directed at the people who r more then likely making revenue from drone footage

  43. brokensword on November 7, 2021 at 10:26 am

    Another overprice drone to empty your wallet. Not worth it at all for normal consumers with this insane price. I’m happy with my air 2s. I’m more hyped for dji mini 3 to see how much dji can put their technology in this small up coming drone

  44. MrHeng562 on November 7, 2021 at 10:27 am

    $5K, I can’t justify that neither. Thanks for the review.

  45. WhatstheGo on November 7, 2021 at 10:31 am

    I think the whole video was really good. Just a quick thing though, the iso was a bit to high throughout the video. So would have been good if that was turned down

  46. John Adams on November 7, 2021 at 10:31 am

    If I get the normal version of that drone and separately I buy the new pro controller is it then going to be compatible? By the way you look like Fox Mulder’s son.. lol

  47. NINO PEČEK - NO PROBLEM LAJF on November 7, 2021 at 10:32 am

    Mavic 2 Pro will stay by my side for a long time. This is flashy, but when u put it in real life it is not worth it. Mavic 2 Pro was golden performance and price wise, got it with fly more combo for 1500$ back then. Mavic 3 definetly does not justify the 2x bigger price mark.

  48. JS Cinema on November 7, 2021 at 10:32 am

    For that price it’s not worth it

  49. Sujaykiran PK on November 7, 2021 at 10:36 am

    The colors look amazing, Truly love it! I wish to get one of these one day, Thank you for the video Parker! and Landon

  50. Matt Jacques on November 7, 2021 at 10:37 am

    Anyone have an explanation for why the camera and rear housing/battery are in a darker plastic? Looks very prototype-ish still… ?
