    Do you have a video showing more of the crash in AC NJ?

  10. Fishing For Fun on May 16, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    I loved the bass pro shops pyramid in the background.

  11. BS fishing on May 16, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    ๐Ÿ˜‚Thatโ€™s hilarious

  12. Shaun Allan on May 16, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    Even your soundtrack is on point, fits perfectly, love all of your videos brother ๐Ÿ’ฏ,. Oh and I recently rented the Mavic Air 2S to get some MORE features than I have with my mini 2,. Which arrived yesterday afternoon overnight FedEx and I was soo excited just simply the size comparison and it’s like I could sense the increased power before even turning it on,.. until I decided to show off in front of company and family by doing a hand launch out through the kitchen window and just as I thought it was pretty much already airborne I began to lower my hand just to cause the sensors to idk "panic" from the tilt and hand moving before it was prepared and the propellers stopped and it crashed to the ground breaking his right leg ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿ’ฉ thankfully the antenna and motor wires were still intact, and for just the moment for a quick fix I ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ˜ถ super glued the leg back on ๐Ÿ˜ฌ renting it for $311.00 for 5 days I don’t really have the time or money to wait on more shipping and repairs or replacement at the time,. Which I JUST NOW thought ๐Ÿ’ญ of the "replacement" and that they could have had me a replacement here by this morning (if they had one in stock) but yeah, just wish I had been recording when it happened… ๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿฅบ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ But I love it’s performance so far, and been on here watching tutorials for different filming and photography modes and tips and tricks,… So before sunrise I will attempt my first go at night time hyperlapse video along Kellogg (US-54/US-400) right on the west side of downtown Wichita Kansas,. Well being that’s only 2 blocks away, and can’t really fly too far due to the radio interference being in the city along with trees and buildings eventually becoming an issue at about 1.3 miles out AND being right outside of an airport restricted zone but still within the first 2 warning zones that show up on the fly app. …. ๐Ÿ˜ถ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿคฏ๐ŸŒš

    What kind of signal booster do you recommand 2.4Ghz and 5.8Ghz? I should use it only one.

  14. Anthony Lacy on May 16, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    Hahahahahaaa nice intro

  15. Ry Rev on May 16, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Hey Ken, its Ryan the cop. I wish I had more time to talk but we are a busy city. Looks like you lost the bet on what answer I would give!

  16. deej jeffs vlog on May 16, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Cool cop ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™‚๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ‘Œ

  17. Neil Reyes on May 16, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Great video. I really enjoyed your filming

  18. Adam Padavic on May 16, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    Hi Ken, I just wanted to thank you for being such a cool guy. I love watching your videos, they are very entertaining, knowledgeable and just fun to watch. Thanks again, My friend.

  19. faisdogg on May 16, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    LOL , you got me good with that restaurant part ๐Ÿ˜‚

  20. Soulreclaimer65 on May 16, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    I know this video is a over a year old. Man Ken you have some skills – LOVE YOUR WORK>

  21. Gaban.Z TV on May 16, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    shift stick, that’s a real car, only real men drive real cars

  22. Mr Inbetween on May 16, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    Hi Ken how can I show you something cool not in public

  23. Eli Holmes on May 16, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Yeahh, I don’t think that would go over similarly in nyc.. even though through air maps there are parts of Manhattan that says theres no restrictions. NYPD has that strict "no drone" rule. Even though it’s not a law or anything.

  24. quebecmedic0750 on May 16, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    Wow great flight, pictures is great

  25. Bryan Ricci on May 16, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    Which episode was the one where it hit the building?

  26. Russell's House on May 16, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Great interaction with Ryan the cop! ๐Ÿ˜‚. So cool!!

  27. Tim on May 16, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Love your work Ryan! Thanks for being so cool about it!

  28. mrBrianlovesmovies on May 16, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Can you make a video covering AirMap s?

  29. Forty Four on May 16, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    I fly in the Tampa area. I have never had a cop be rude or tell me to stop flying. Tampa cops and hillsborough sheriff are awesome about drones. Itโ€™s the old farts that get all stupid thinking my camera can actually see anything but colored pixels at 400 feet

  30. Noah's Ark on May 16, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    did you get fined by the FAA when your drone went around the building and the guy lost sight of it?

  31. Thomas McCarty on May 16, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Ken: โ€œIt even gives you a little countdown timer.
    Timer: *Counts Up*

  32. 1sk on May 16, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    I saw a drone flying around buildings lmao the other day

  33. ROBB SCHOLAR on May 16, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    9:40 you’re a beast!!

  34. Jessie Castille on May 16, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Keep videos coming, I Love watching your videos. Very cool on the once working building, and restaurant.

  35. Nightlight on May 16, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    nice civic

  36. bernhard85 on May 16, 2022 at 7:25 pm

    I’m not taking a picture for that app lol why do they need that when I have the proof on my phone for the authorization.. great app other than that..

  37. Tracey's Video Toy Box on May 16, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    I’m confused on the definition of "anti collision" lighting as asked on the LAANC request form. Didn’t think the common navigation lights on the craft qualified and that a high visibility strobe was necessary? Am I wrong?

  38. RV Buzz on May 16, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    Even when Iโ€™m sick with COVID, you are always the guy that puts a smile on my face. Thanks, Youโ€™re the Bomb !

  39. Tony Holmes on May 16, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    We know you lol

  40. Marc Metcalfe on May 16, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    Awesome video!

  41. Nakadu on May 16, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    You’re covered for a million dollars?….land on me we can split it!

  42. simbyair on May 16, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Omg ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ Ryan is a Legend ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  43. Cody Smith on May 16, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    This is an older video, but I am curious. Do I always need to get approval by the FAA to fly, and do I have to use apps to log my flights? Also for insurance, is that just because you are flying in a city? Thanks for any help!

  44. abasia abasia on May 16, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    Hello how are you I follow you from Algeria

  45. Johnny B Peรฑa on May 16, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Took the time to carefully cross the streets via rooftop… then uses goggles to orbit and drone out without looking down below at the roads. Ohkay.

  46. BS fishing on May 16, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Wow I can see bass pro shop in the background Iโ€™ve been there the pyramid one in Memphis minute thing was awesome

  47. Taran Michel Ward on May 16, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Such a great building, it’s a shame it’s now derelict. ๐Ÿ˜ž

  48. Daniel J on May 16, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Whats the name of both of those apps u used

  49. Howard Day on May 16, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    OK, no self respecting kid from the 70’s would wear red converse dude.

  50. Ryan on May 16, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Can the same thing be done with a larger drone like the DJI M600 Pro?
