  3. Rick Mentore on April 13, 2022 at 6:00 pm

    There is flight simulators where one can practice, right?

  4. Dougie on April 13, 2022 at 6:01 pm

    I just bought a drone today and this is gonna help a lot, thanks man.

    I have an older Autel drone, but I learned they quit making batteries for it, really ticks me off since there’s nothing wrong with the unit to begin with.
    Going to switch to DJI and see how bad they screw they’re fan base over after a few years.
    I’m looking at this very model, thank you for the video..

  6. KVL Editorial on April 13, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    Hey Jake. What camera are you using in this video? Thanks.

  7. Sere Khalil on April 13, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    Great lesson I just bought the air 2 thanks again

  8. Mercedes Dockery on April 13, 2022 at 6:05 pm

    Is it stable with wind?

  9. Joseph M on April 13, 2022 at 6:05 pm

    I didn’t know you had to unfold the drone before you fly it. I thought it flew the way it came out of the box

  10. Stephen on April 13, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    Is it possible to fly a drone if you only have the use of one hand?

  11. Melford Solomon on April 13, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    This information is awesome I’m about ready to fly my dji mini pro for the first time flying it and flying a drone but your video gave me the confidence that I needed to get out and fly it. Keep up the good work I’m following.

  12. Anna Skyfta on April 13, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    Once I fly it it just goes all over the place before I even push any buttons. πŸ₯΄ And then it crashes onto obstacles.
    I don’t understand how yours stays in one place and waits for you to give directions. πŸ€”

  13. ak bunny on April 13, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Thank you for a great video. Now all I have to do is pluck up the courage to get one…! Stay safe…πŸ˜‰

  14. Bill Buckley Tutorials on April 13, 2022 at 6:15 pm

    great video . The hardest thing for me is after the drone goes up in the sky it quickly is impossible to see !!!! Always makes me nervous . Plus what about everyone talking about you have to have part 101 license etc. Even if your just doing it as a hobby…

  15. Tyke Whitehead on April 13, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    I wonder is this for a certain drone or is this for any drone that is purchased

  16. Debs most excellent adventures on April 13, 2022 at 6:18 pm

  20. gemstyx walls on April 13, 2022 at 6:22 pm

  21. Joseph M on April 13, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    I didn’t know you had to take the camera lens off before you start filming.

  22. D on April 13, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    "Keep hovering to play!" Very clever youtube!

  31. Jessie's Drone Adventures on April 13, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    If you don’t mind me asking….where was this filmed…..the scenery is beautiful!!! Great video as well!

  32. Denise C on April 13, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    How come you didnt satelite calibrate?

  33. Scenic Hwys on April 13, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    What if you don’t have a phone or other device?

  34. Luke Clay on April 13, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    My name is Jake

  35. Neil Reid on April 13, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    Excellent vid for beginners- thanks. I’ve got about 200 hours flight time and totaled my Mavic Pro twice. All good. One suggestion for beginners is to learn to watch battery usage. It can be freaky for a beginner when the drone returns to home automatically because of low remaining battery. If you have trees or obstacles nearby, the experience can be stressful because the drone is very difficult to manually control in RTH mode. Keep up the great work!

  36. Joseph M on April 13, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    Wait a minute! You have to turn the remote control on before you use it? I was wondering why all my drones just flew away and never came back to me.

  37. Ntsako Khoza on April 13, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    The best info for beginners like me

  39. Dice’n Line on April 13, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    I am planning to buy drone one day atleast the cheapest one maybe to try how to fly. And this video gives me an idea on how to operate and what’s the best things to do in setting up. Thanks for the tips.. I give you my full support

  40. Joseph M on April 13, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    Really? His next video is going to be β€œhow to breath.” Wow! I didn’t know you had to take the camera

  41. Lee Kralovec on April 13, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    Thank you

  42. Ed Young on April 13, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Is that Powerline Pass?
    Looks like you’re standing at the lake at the base of Ptarmigan peak.
    I grew up in Anchorage on the hillside and when I saw this video I thought it looked familiar. I hiked and biked up there all the time!
    It’s one of my favorite places on the planet!

  43. Ebrahim Lasker on April 13, 2022 at 6:47 pm

  50. Gar S on April 13, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    You lost me with "…plug your phone in…."""??? This is advice for a first time user.? You gotta realize where first time users are coming from. Just too fast and confusing.
