    You just scared the ©Г@? Out of me!😵 I am building my first drone just getting completely into this hobby. I have already dove in and to deep in to jump out. All I need is the reciever. I have never soldered and now I am terrified😳.
    Great video!👍
    Now I dont know how Im going to do this 🤔,

    What are your thoughts on FPV Racing Drones?! Are these the future of drones or just another passing fad???
    Whats in your build???

  3. Felix Brandau on May 17, 2021 at 2:44 am

    You should get your drone back ! Because those batteries harm the nature

    How much did you spend for your first drone?

  7. DanieleMacLife on May 17, 2021 at 2:52 am

    9:03 "Let’s see how it goes!". I’m glad it didn’t go on the power lines! 😂 Be careful, man!

  8. FPV Boy on May 17, 2021 at 2:52 am

  9. mr. maskot on May 17, 2021 at 2:53 am

  10. Brian Carrillo on May 17, 2021 at 2:53 am

    This is great! Thanks and congrats!

  11. shark killah- on May 17, 2021 at 2:56 am

  12. Brian Buccellato on May 17, 2021 at 2:58 am

    in your summary, you forgot to mention that it’s an absolute blast to fly them. regardless of all the difficulties

  13. Eric Bravo on May 17, 2021 at 2:58 am

    You picked like the easiest build…and you struggled. You should of tried building in 2014…lol

  14. Rick van O on May 17, 2021 at 2:59 am

    I know how to play guitar, see you in a few months!

  15. DTFPV on May 17, 2021 at 2:59 am

    There was tons of better info than your vid at the time this vid was posted lol. ??

  16. Marcus Meacham on May 17, 2021 at 3:02 am

    You in Hawaii

  17. JuicyFruityify on May 17, 2021 at 3:04 am

    Thank you for this, my gateway drug was a Mavic Pro….. I saw parts online and knew zero…. until now.

  18. Jenno Amran on May 17, 2021 at 3:04 am

    awesome bro,

  19. Ravindra Prasad on May 17, 2021 at 3:06 am

    Circuit diagram plz

  20. Jul Zal on May 17, 2021 at 3:12 am

    just love it

  21. TimJHowitzFPV on May 17, 2021 at 3:14 am

    The way he says lipo battery😂

  22. Chris Santini on May 17, 2021 at 3:14 am

    Terrible title for this. Nothing to do with cinematic filming and you don’t even show “how” you just have a shitty general overview of your experience. Also why but the parts from DJI your first time… there’s plenty of reputable cheap brands 😂

  23. ThisGuyEddie X on May 17, 2021 at 3:21 am

    Without Joshua Bardwell idk where this hobby would of been. If anyone is getting into FPV try and use Joshua’s Affiliate links.. thats the least we can do for him.

  24. Howie Phuckterpusc on May 17, 2021 at 3:22 am

    not to flex but my first drone i build was a success and there was no smoke , i am 15 years old btw

  25. Sean McKibben on May 17, 2021 at 3:24 am

    Thank you very much for this video!

  26. rm -r on May 17, 2021 at 3:25 am

    so much time? 130h is nothing

  27. Wayne on May 17, 2021 at 3:26 am

    Very good video! Sometimes listening to what a newbie has experienced is just more helpful than those tutorial videos, because you can find the fixes to those issues not gonna happen in tutorial. Thanks for the sharing!

  28. Wizard FPV on May 17, 2021 at 3:27 am

    Hahaha, I remember building my first drone. Plugged it in and it started to smoke. It’s always great though.

  29. Aaron Chambers on May 17, 2021 at 3:27 am

    Do you plan on buying the dji fpv drone?

  30. SUPER SLUG on May 17, 2021 at 3:28 am

    5:30. Best moment

    "Falling Drones"

  32. mckrackin5324 on May 17, 2021 at 3:29 am

    Good job. Now if you really want a hard flying experience, get into 3D helicopters. The hard part is that it’s not FPV. Like flying inverted, you have to remember that down is up and up is expensive. Also, learning orientations. If the nose is to you, left is right and right is left. Pushing the stick away from you brings the heli towards you. Then inverted controls changes some things and some things stay the same. Definitely the hardest and most expensive learning curve I’ve ever experienced. lol For someone with no experience, learning to take off and hover can take weeks. Not even flying. Just hover in place. Then more weeks to learn to hover nose in. You should try it, if you haven’t by now.

    PID = potential integral derivative. In simple words, part of the Control Theory in Mechatronics Engineering

  34. Shirley Maranan on May 17, 2021 at 3:31 am

    Thank you sawyer now i learned to fly a fpv drone on the Sim and I can’t fly outdoors beacouse of the pandemic

  35. DTFPV on May 17, 2021 at 3:31 am

    HAHAHAH a LIPPPO batteryyyyyyy 2:25 Amazing

  36. Cong Truong on May 17, 2021 at 3:32 am

    Thank you so much for this Video! There’s so many amazing 4K Footage of the Mountains and many more on YouTube, I fly drone since the Phantom 4, at the moment I have the Mavic 2 Pro and I’m thinking since long time to buy a FPV Drone for this Cinematic Footage, but now I have really to think over this Idea… This would be a big challenge for me…

  37. Nathan ,s on May 17, 2021 at 3:34 am

    I wish i could affourd one😞😞😞😞

  38. S D on May 17, 2021 at 3:35 am

    Well that was informative!

  39. DashCam moments on May 17, 2021 at 3:35 am

    I’ve been scratch building my quad, hexa and octo multirotors since 2013. And they do have FPV camera. A dedicated FPV drone should take me about 2 hours to build probably. I feel lucky that when I started none of these todays highly advanced drones were readily available. I had to learn to build them.

  40. Harry Ferrett on May 17, 2021 at 3:35 am

    This is what happened when a noob dives in too deep and has no idea what there doing

  41. Henri-fillip BAUER on May 17, 2021 at 3:35 am

    Where ever he is living I’m moving there

  42. FluffeeOW on May 17, 2021 at 3:36 am

    all these cinematographers buying straight into dji, they will never understand the struggles of analog

  43. SpikeJonesTheCr0oked on May 17, 2021 at 3:37 am

    I love that the DJI digital stuff has brought so many of the photography guys into our little corner of the drone world. Welcome. Good job putting in the work on a sim…..I cant stress it enough to the new guys how much it helps and how much better your first actual flight experiences will be if you practice in a sim first.

  44. Piotur on May 17, 2021 at 3:37 am

    Well done mate 🙂

  45. Hayden Hames on May 17, 2021 at 3:37 am

    rich kid problems! burned up 3 dji units…

  46. dmitriy motly on May 17, 2021 at 3:39 am

    How do you program the motors to play music

  47. Noam cohen on May 17, 2021 at 3:39 am

  48. Flyin’ Eye Aerial & FPV on May 17, 2021 at 3:40 am

    Subscribed and hit the bell. Great video for anyone getting into fpv weather you know everything about camera drones or not.

  49. Mavic Pro Toe on May 17, 2021 at 3:40 am
