Phantom 3 Professional- http://amzn.to/2jBlAci This is my baby. I’ve flown this drone more than any other drone and shot with it more. It’s an amazing workhorse that defines dependability. Just make sure you get ND filters for your camera and you’ll be flying like a pro in no time.

Estes Proto X Microdrone- http://amzn.to/2ily7j7 This little fella right here is what started it all. My very first drone. SUPER difficult to fly, but that’s the best way to get started. Make your mistakes here…and grow into a dope ass pilot. Nothing fancy about this drone, it flies and moves the way you tell it to. Learn to point the nose of the drone while you fly and you’ll be heads and shoulders above the crowd.

Latrax Alias- http://amzn.to/2jcS0wN This is the most fun I’ve had flying a drone. This thing is SICK. It’s damn near indestructible and just fun! It does flips, has varying degrees of difficulty to fly, and is fast! I cant praise this one enough as a toy/learner drone. If you think the Proto X is childs play, this is your trainer drone. Either way, enjoy the flight. Make sure you grab a couple extra batteries too! (each battery only has a few minutes of flight time)

    Thanks for the video! Quick question, do you have to get a waiver every time you want to fly at night or does that class give a sort of ‘license’ to fly at night? Thanks!

  2. D_Rock on December 4, 2021 at 10:57 am

    Yep. More of this. The top 5’s are good but I want a professional’s insight to the industry. Teach me Dronr!

  3. Pat Edwards on December 4, 2021 at 10:58 am

    Awesome! This was a really useful vlog. I have some ideas for future episodes if your interested. 3D mapping techniques, Colour grading LUT’s, customer interaction, editing tools/software, safety suggestions, battery maintenance, antiglare/screen shield ideas, best websites ( I know CASA (Australia) have just released an app for no fly zones), transportation tips, weather considerations……the list goes on!

  4. Hatch61 on December 4, 2021 at 10:58 am

    I flew at dusk once to get a shot of the Christmas lights that everyone in Town puts up, and the reflections on the water, it was scary, but great footage. ( I didn’t know that you needed special permission for night flights). Thanks for the information. Great channel.

  5. charles spidell on December 4, 2021 at 10:59 am

    if you fly your Mavic at night and that loses GPS it’s gone you won’t ever see to bring it back

  6. She’sXxFLYxX on December 4, 2021 at 11:01 am

    Tonight I seen something in the sky that looked like a drone but I’m not sure what it was because I’ve done research and noticed that drones have lights . This thing I seen had no lights . It was more like alien looking . It looked like a drone but I’m not sure I’m so confused and lowkey shook

  7. Ole’ Wise One on December 4, 2021 at 11:02 am

    Great Video! Very informative!!

  16. RICK HALBUR on December 4, 2021 at 11:12 am

    A lot of great information you just put out B Thanks

  17. N4LDG on December 4, 2021 at 11:12 am

    If Part 107 states in order to fly a sUAS during twilight hours, the UAS has to have anti collision lights to avoid a possible mid-air collision with an aircraft, and be visible for approx 3 statute miles, etc. Why must one request a waiver for this? It’s not stated in the actual rule; 107.29. But before you answer, read the rule, and stick to the facts of what it states, not what you think it means.

  18. Son Ero on December 4, 2021 at 11:18 am

    Did you also get a waiver for flying over people not involved in the flight ?

  19. Franco Gallo on December 4, 2021 at 11:23 am

    i think that was a very cool thing to c city from that far and now i know what not to do a night {flying} my site is not that good

    I liked and subscribed to your video thanks

  26. Ready Set Drone on December 4, 2021 at 11:30 am

    Thanks for the shout out B! I really like the conversation. You are an amazing pilot and I think sharing your experience is huge for the community! Hope to talk with you this week and looking forward to our next live broadcast together!

  27. The Video Explorer on December 4, 2021 at 11:32 am

    That’s really great that you make these videos; they are a big help to me because you are talking about kinds of flights that I have never done and it helps me be prepared. Thank you very much. 2017Sep15Fri 10:13:08 Alaska time

  28. JAS Aerial on December 4, 2021 at 11:32 am

    Okay call it a Knowledge Share and the information was very useful. I would love to see more. I of course just fly a PS3 I am trying to use to start a small aerial photo business. I would love to know how you got started. What tips can you give someone who is not using a $1000 drone. How can I get the best out of my investment so it can earn the funds to move to something better.

  29. Piet Hoebeke on December 4, 2021 at 11:33 am

    Great video. Thank you. My question is , "when you filled out the waiver, did you have to have to specify the area you wanted to fly in? Was it 3 city blocks, an entire town, or city?

  30. Gadget Inspector on December 4, 2021 at 11:33 am

    Are the night waivers only good for one flight or does it give you permission to fly at night over a designated period of time?

  31. Commsprepper on December 4, 2021 at 11:34 am

    Can you share a link for the strobe?

  32. homertalk on December 4, 2021 at 11:36 am

    Flying at dawn has been the most exciting to me. Sun coming up highlighting the drone while still seeing the bright LED’s.

  33. Log on December 4, 2021 at 11:37 am

    My binoculars would be useful to see closer
    But im afraid of a jumpscare while im in the bathroom at night

  34. Bob Capps on December 4, 2021 at 11:37 am

    If not your not a pro your not even close to my level my nigga

  35. Nicholas Grimm on December 4, 2021 at 11:38 am

    great video keep up the good work

  36. Matthew Parks on December 4, 2021 at 11:38 am

    great insight. i love this type of your real life expertise and experiences. you can call tales from dronr or something. I am thinking of doing the 107, because I really enjoy the hobby. flying at night seems like a effen wreck. great job and brilliant footage.

  37. N4LDG on December 4, 2021 at 11:39 am

    Type of lights? If you’re a commercial sUAS (FAA certified) remote pilot, and you need to operate your sUAS during the twilight hours, what color strobe lights would one need to have on the sUAS? And where would one mount the strobe light(s), where they are visible?

  38. Novice Quads on December 4, 2021 at 11:42 am

    Mix it up do both. Its good to be random.

  39. Wayne Garriepy on December 4, 2021 at 11:43 am

    Thank you. The first and only time I flew at night it was more deep twilight. What seemed common sense to me was to fly the route during the day when I could be more aware of surroundings. I took notes of safe altitudes and paths and wrote them down. As long as I followed and repeated all of my patterns flown during the day, and as long as my unit (Phantom 3 Prost the time) performed up to snuff, I had no fear of accidents. With today’s ‘wave points’, locked it during the day, everything can be re-flown at night without fear.

  40. Steve Mid TN T-Trak / Chicago & SouthEastern MRR on December 4, 2021 at 11:44 am

    Yes more talking from experience videos, please.
    I am just really learning / exploring and gaining experience. I was a Commerical Hot Air Balloon Pilot for 17 years, Glider Pilot with RAF/GSA , private FAA SEL blah blah blah.
    But this sUAS is just another dimension, different mind space.
    Better learn from your experiences than learning "from school of hard knocks".
    Appreciate you taking the time and sharing.
    p.s. Enjoyed your guest appearance on Ken Heron’s Thursday Night Live

  41. Jonathon Smith on December 4, 2021 at 11:44 am

    Really like this, exactly what newbies like myself need to hear. It is always good to hear a professional opinion.

  42. Luke Stokes on December 4, 2021 at 11:45 am

    Up until now, I haven’t really seen anything on YouTube about legal night flying and getting the waiver. Thanks for the video!

  43. Michael Hurdle Production Studio on December 4, 2021 at 11:45 am

    Raw is a pain in the butt lol. Once again, good video dude.

  44. John Acevedo on December 4, 2021 at 11:46 am

    Really useful information. Greatly appreciated.

  45. Josh Cahill on December 4, 2021 at 11:47 am

    Any chance I can get a sticker for my cooler? Love the videos and night tips. Thanks

  46. FPV_EvilMunkey on December 4, 2021 at 11:49 am

    Awesome video as always B. I don’t think I ever want to fly at night. Lol

  47. Tank 62 on December 4, 2021 at 11:50 am

    Hello Drone, I have been a subscriber of your channel for all most a year. And you have never answered a request for DRONER t-shirt. And what was and still big on my list is trying to get drone education training to kids at risk and the underprivileged. I’m trying my best to give back to these community’s. And I have been trying to find help.

  48. iflyRC on December 4, 2021 at 11:53 am

    Got my waiver on the 3rd attempt and like you said it takes some time. The thing that I still cannot find explicit information on is whether you need a new waiver for everywhere you fly. When requesting the waiver, you have to call out a specific location you intend to fly. The waiver itself doesn’t state it.

  49. James Fair on December 4, 2021 at 11:53 am

    Loved this! Thank you for the professional viewpoint on some of the challenges and what it takes to do night footage. Very articulate for off the cuff 🙂

  50. Andrew Panayotoff on December 4, 2021 at 11:56 am

    Great Video. Got my Night Wavier a while back, just started getting it amended to my AA COAs in South Florida to night fly in local controlled airspaces. We also fly mainly dual controlled Inspire 1, but I’ve been meaning to try out my Mavic Pro at night to see if I can get something OK without going RAW video. Close in architectural lighting photos might be OK as well.
