    A great beginners video for basic drone piloting. I commend you for your dedication to this sport and for helping beginners, like me, be a little less apprehensive about drones….thank’s again!

    Thanks so much for sharing video

  13. Greg Hooke on September 5, 2020 at 10:51 am

    Sorry but you do a basic hover and really did you go into which control or have a camera on the consol for us newbies?

  14. David Vadnais on September 5, 2020 at 10:51 am

    I love how he says "remain calm". That’s very important. Don’t panic and have your drone end up in a tree or on top of a building

  15. JP1970 on September 5, 2020 at 10:51 am

    Great video for a true beginner. So many of the videos I’ve watched go through everything so fast that it is almost impossible to learn anything. Thank you too for the info about battery safety. I purchased a lipo safe bag (from Amazon) and a couple of small pouches to store my batteries in.

  30. Sean Moran on September 5, 2020 at 11:07 am

    Wow! I never thought of the battery burning my house down. I’m with you on the container. Getting one right away.

    Thank you.

  33. Devonbiker on September 5, 2020 at 11:11 am

    Was given a drone for Christmas Hubsan H501S and the more I YouTubed drones afterwards, I came to the conclusion I need to buy the Mavic Pro or the Mavic 2 Pro instead. However, after watching your video I’m beginning to think of keeping the Hubsan just to learn the basics before flying an expensive drone. Thanks for the video, it was helpful.

  34. Victor HAVEN on September 5, 2020 at 11:13 am

    Thank you. This is very helpful.

  35. Av8tore71 on September 5, 2020 at 11:15 am

    After flying UH-60’s in the Army and now I’m flying medevac for my local hospital (OSF) I finally bought a drone (Potensic D85) thinking shoot I can fly real aircraft I can fly a drone……..well after getting it stuck in a tree, stuck on top of my house and hitting my brand new Dodge Demon (that hurt lol) I found this video and have to say a huge THANK YOU!!!! There is a huge difference between real helicopters and drones but I already knew that. Thank you for this video, so now my 11 year old daughter and I can have fun following your videos

  36. Blair Guinea on September 5, 2020 at 11:16 am

    Great job Justin Sir, thankyou

  37. unknown drone user on September 5, 2020 at 11:17 am

    Can you make a video on how to fly smoother

  38. SupraManG on September 5, 2020 at 11:18 am

    Yeppers, this is a great video tutorial explaining the basics of flying a drone. Very good. Time to sub!

  39. Paul Roberts on September 5, 2020 at 11:19 am

    Loved the vid. Haven’t flown yet but will maybe tomorrow. Have been getting to know the app and what the buttons do. I believe i can do what you did in the video. Thanks, it really built my confidence….

  40. THOMAS FISKE on September 5, 2020 at 11:22 am

    Good stufffff…

  41. Matthew Barnett on September 5, 2020 at 11:25 am

    Great video. Thank you for all the tips. I’m just getting into the RC drone hobby and can’t wait to try it when I get my own drone. Do you have a link for this drone you fly in the video?


    Thank you!

    My sad story is I bought a DJI Mavic Pro (Β£1200 $1500) as a treat for some friends in Cyprus and 6 weeks after all the hassle of getting it through customs after sending it to North Cyprus (who take longer to deal with things) etc etc. So the guys waited weeks nearly 2 months for their drone. The day we got it we all went to the beach and we were all very excited filming with it. We were on the deck sunbathing. When the drone returned to us it just flipped and landed in the sea for no apparent reason! We got it out after about 2 seconds, dried it in rice, but it didn’t work! When I phoned DJI long distance, they said they would repair it free for us so I spent more money Β£50, sending it back (which meant travelling through the border, again thru customs, to the South of the Island, I don’t drive, to find a Post Office so I could track the drone.)
    Then strangely DJi wouldn’t confirm that they received it 4 weeks later (even though tracking showed it arrived) until I could find all my receipts and evidence my end which I had temporarily lost. This took another week and a half, more long distance phone calls, to different people as no record was kept of my calls. It was a total nightmare. Finally, they decided they were not going to fix it free after all and gave no real reason. They then quoted €890 to repair it which seems steep when you consider they replace a chip or something. I just asked them to return it. I cannot explain why I wasn’t angry with them on the phone I was polite all the way – so I am at a loss. In ads and YouTube you see the machine over water there is no warning that it is NOT even semi-waterproof or splashproof. I explained to Amazon where I bought it who decided they would sort it for me and if they couldn’t get redress from DJI they would pay me and I agreed half. I waited and waited for my refund. Out of the blue, Amazon too decided they weren’t going to pay me anything not even a postage stamp. So I am Β£1500 plus down and all my time and effort and nothing to show for it. Not to mention all the time and trouble travelling to South Cyprus to send it back via tracked mail. But what I wanted to asked anyone PLEASE – what do I do with all the batteries and stuff? Can I use them on a different drone (not DJI as I am still sore!) There has to be a clone out there where I can use the batteries surely it just seems a waste..

    your content good! i watch every video ! Can we Support each other

  44. DEADLY noob gaming on September 5, 2020 at 11:26 am

    Why auto hold is not working properly

  45. upplsuckimcool16 on September 5, 2020 at 11:27 am

    I found that my brain can handle normal hover and nose in hover really well fairly quickly

    However, my biggest issue is when I’m at a side view orientation. That is when my mind loses track of what’s going on and I panic.

  46. Drones, rc, tech world on September 5, 2020 at 11:29 am

    Nice video well done. Glad I stumbled across your channel.

  47. Duane Weldon on September 5, 2020 at 11:30 am

    How do I hover the copter? Yeah just put it in a hover?

  48. Larry Sherfield on September 5, 2020 at 11:37 am
