    Extra batteries are the way to go up to a 5 pack in my 2s kit loving it and I got smarttree DJI charger I can stay airborne over 2 hrs air2 s army out

  2. Montro Maximo on October 22, 2021 at 8:42 am

    Is this drone compliant with that new drone stuff that will be here in a few years?

  3. Michael Rosario on October 22, 2021 at 8:44 am

    Russ, Please I need a DRONE, any drone, Please I don’t have the money right now, for one…Please, Please, Russ..Thanks and Sorry for asking…👍🙏🙏

  4. HighlanderMikeGolf on October 22, 2021 at 8:45 am

    Awesome video, Russ! Definitely would be interested in more videos on this drone. That thermal camera is very impressive! Looking forward to more videos on the Enterprise. Speaking of which….I have a Star Trek dad joke….What did Spock find in the toilet of the Starship Enterprise? The Captain’s log!! 🤣😂🤣 Sorry, brother….couldn’t resist!

  5. Vern Shurtz on October 22, 2021 at 8:45 am

    In have the Enterprise Dual and will be upgrading to the Advanced very soon. In order to get the most out of this drone AND be successful using it in your business I highly recommend the ITC sUAS Level 1 Thermography certification. It’s an outstanding course and you will never look at a thermal image the same. So many people have no clue what they are doing with a thermal camera especially when you are doing radiothermic analysis. Understanding how emissive or reflective a surface is makes a HUGE difference in understanding what you are actually seeing.

  6. Verde Valley Video on October 22, 2021 at 8:47 am

    Thanks for the video. I spent a lot of time researching this drone before purchasing it a few months back. There was not a lot of videos in English and not a lot of comparative footage. "Real job" stuff has kept me from "drone job" stuff lately so I haven’t put the hours on this that I need to nor have I put the services out there just yet but that’s coming. Thanks again for the video and definitely looking forward to more in-depth reviews of this model.

  7. M CII on October 22, 2021 at 8:48 am

    What’s really got me stumped is your link to the drone takes me to their site and it shows this drone, DJI Mavic2 Enterprise Advanced selling for $6500.00??? Great video BTW. Thanks

  8. NHILL Productions on October 22, 2021 at 8:49 am

    Great video Russ. Keep up the great work. This makes me more motivated to FINALLY get my Part 107. I’ve got a Mini2 for “recreational purposes”, waiting on the Mavic 3 release. Do you think the Mavic 3 will be released as an Enterprise Advanced model.

  9. Keith Howard on October 22, 2021 at 8:49 am

    Very interested in seeing more video. Thanks for the info.

  10. Kevin Friel on October 22, 2021 at 8:49 am

    I have had ME Duel Advanced for my biz for several months and have advertised it’s availability/capabilites via direct mail and other. Not 1 response.

  11. Jeff Johnson on October 22, 2021 at 8:49 am

    So if you actually start getting paid work, it would be something I think most of us would be interested in watching you do. Could you imagine a new VLOG channel of 51drones going to different job sites and flying his drone commercially, it would be worth watching and would most likely inspire more people to become 107 pilots. That would be cool.

  12. Craig Fisher on October 22, 2021 at 8:50 am

    Wow, I wonder if an old codger at 75 years of age can start a YouTube channel, create an exemplary behavior and tutorial path for teaching others while maintaining it for enough years to make the amount of money it costs to purchase one of these, before he has a stroke and dies? Nope, I just wasted too much of the time I have left, just thinking about it, Russ!

  13. Carolina Aerial Visuals on October 22, 2021 at 8:51 am

    This quad has been out a little while hasn’t it? Why am I seeing a couple videos about it suddenly? Am i missing something?

  15. GammaGonad on October 22, 2021 at 8:52 am

    I’m currently in the Nondestructive Testing field. I mostly do industrial gamma radiography. I’m am also a part 107 commercial pilot. I have actually built a custom ultrasonic thickness drone capable of measuring the thickness of water towers and large pressure vessels.

    I have looked into drones with thermal cameras, and the only disadvantage to this drone, is that DJI stopped using FLIR cameras. FLIR tools is an invaluable resource when it comes to analyzing thermal images. Hopefully they will develop a similar software suite.

    It would be very useful having such a small and portable drone with more capability. I have personally owned the Mavic, Mavic air, Mavic 2 pro, and the DJI FPV drone. So using this would be extremely familiar.

    My main passion is FPV drones, as I have built over 40 of them. Currently I use my commercial pilot license for dynamic cinematic footage, which DJI drones are just not capable of doing. Camera drones do have their place though, and this is definitely one of them. Definitely looking forward to seeing all of what this platform is capable of.

  16. AirShots Mid-South on October 22, 2021 at 8:54 am

    Can Mavic 2 Pro batteries be used on the Mavic 2 Enterprise?

  17. Doug Cooper on October 22, 2021 at 8:54 am

    Excellent Video Russ!! Awesome Drone!! Please Include The Cost Of The Drone In Your Video.

  18. Ewerton Aquino on October 22, 2021 at 8:55 am

    Congrats! You just won a new follower!! I’m really interested in this Drone and the new future I gonna buy it!

  19. HopeFullSpiritFlyer1 on October 22, 2021 at 8:56 am

    is it possible to change the range of the minimum and maximum temperature?
    thank you.

  20. Emanuel Andrews III on October 22, 2021 at 8:57 am

    Man? I got to tell you. The quality is always crazy good, but this was on a whole other level! Bad enough you got me to get the Nanuk case for my M2P. Now you got me look lustfully at this bird.

  21. Terry Cole on October 22, 2021 at 8:57 am

    My two main gripes against the Enterprise is the Geo fencing. Unlocking can stop your operations dead even if you operate as a first responder agency. The second is the lack of intelligent flight modes like follow and point of interest/circle. Not sure why DJI withheld these on this unit. Our fire dept is going with the Autel Evo2 640T v2 for these reasons.

  22. chemicalcorrosion on October 22, 2021 at 8:59 am

    50 seconds in I paused to look up price. $6,500! Doh! Stopped watching the video.

  23. Greg Vinci on October 22, 2021 at 8:59 am

    I fly a M2 enterprise dual. I am discovering that two new batteries will start the “safety” discharge in 3 days. Makes it very hard to be on standby for a search is one needs a hour to charge a battery first. Have you experienced this yet with the new one?

  24. Inospect on October 22, 2021 at 8:59 am

    Great video!!!!

  25. John Scott on October 22, 2021 at 9:03 am

    Russ, great info. Looks like a very nice drone. Will be watching for followup posts.

  26. fire2323bl on October 22, 2021 at 9:03 am

    What brand of E-bike did you get?

  27. Lyn Smith on October 22, 2021 at 9:07 am

    Good video Russ. Be great to see more about this drone.

  28. Sudburydrone on October 22, 2021 at 9:07 am


  29. glen paul on October 22, 2021 at 9:08 am

    This is a very costly item at $7000 with fly more pack. The price seems excessive considering what it has over and above a mavic pro or 2s. It is hard to fathom that a thermal camera, lights, speaker and zoom capabilities are worth more than $4000 over the other models.

  30. Geoff W on October 22, 2021 at 9:10 am

    Our fire department just added an M2EA as we begin to add/replace equipment in our cache. Very capable and improved over the Advanced Duals we have with optics, thermals, and ability to split screen. Smart controller is also a nice addition. I’d encourage you to discuss NFPA 2400 with the Fire Chief. A relatively new guide for the fire service on program development. He may also consider applying to Firehouse Subs grant program. As for both, we found having both 107 certified pilots as well as COAs provide the greatest benefit for our program (6-ish years). Pearland ,TX has great experience with COAs. DJI geofencing can be a pain but once you understand the unlocking process (and have a public safety account), the issue decreases somewhat.

  31. MidKnightriderR6 on October 22, 2021 at 9:11 am

    What about the RTK module? You didn’t mention it

  32. dwayne pothier on October 22, 2021 at 9:11 am

    Hi Russ, I’m bummed I bought my enterprise edition last year and the thermal version then was horrible so I got the other version. Now of course this comes out. You can’t win no matter what always another drone coming. ALSO NO FPV FOR RUSS??????????? I was surprised

  33. dee macha on October 22, 2021 at 9:13 am

    great video! I have been flying recreationally for 3 years now and have decided I am missing some money opportunities so I have studied and taking the 107 test next Friday. One of my interests have been helping local law enforcement and fire department which I already have a great relationship with and do other volunteer work for. As soon as I am finished typing this I am going to check into this drone to add to my current drones which are the M2Z, Phantom 4 Pro and Mini.

  34. John Crestiani on October 22, 2021 at 9:15 am

    What a great video you have here bro!… I Finally discovered The Beginner-Friendly, 3-Step Blueprint i Use to Generate as Much as $10,000+ my Very First Month. I posted how it works on my profile

  35. Bryan D on October 22, 2021 at 9:17 am

    Show me as much as you can about this drone, Russ! Also, if you’re able, I’d love to see a comparison between this and the Autel Evo 2 Enterprise equivalent

  36. Jason Nelson on October 22, 2021 at 9:18 am

    I’m sorry. I feel I need to apologize to Russ. I didn’t mean anything negative towards Russ or his business from my previous comment. Kudos to him for building his channel to what it has been in 4 years. I don’t know much about his business other than this YouTube channel. Living only hours away, maybe someday we could cross paths and find out more about his business.

    It was just frustrating for me to see this video. Don’t get me wrong, it was very educational. Like I said in my previous comment, I’m just trying to save for a mini 2 at $650. I’m hoping to get some sort of business going, but that might be a struggle with a mini 2, but that’s all I can afford (and quite frankly, what I could only hope would convince my wife that this might work).

    So to see that there is this type of drone that would amplify a business is out there, but costs $7,000, is frustrating. Yes, I understand it will take a ton of time to build up a business to be able to afford this drone, and I hope some day I can.

    Very well done, Russ. I always enjoy your videos and hope to soon be flying my own drone.

    Thank you.

  37. Jammineyeonline on October 22, 2021 at 9:18 am

    Dam 7k? Thats a hard buy if you dont plan to make money 2ith it.

  38. Uncle Dan_58 on October 22, 2021 at 9:18 am

    Okay, as I sit here and drool over this drone, I gotta tell ya, holy crap! $6500.00 bucks!
    But like you said “If you’re interested in making an investment “.
    Which would make this drone a great investment for anyone looking to start their own business.
    I should really get off my rump and get my 107, I’m 63 y/o now and this would be a really good business adventure after retirement.
    Now, to find the best Part 107 course 😁
    Great video my friend 👍

    Ya know, I’ve been watching you since you’ve gotten your first Mavic (I bought mine soon after) and have watched you grow your channel over time, keep up the great work 👍

  39. RVing with G on October 22, 2021 at 9:19 am

    I have wanted one for three years

  40. T.S. Thomas on October 22, 2021 at 9:22 am

    I believe that if one is going to start out in a business utilizing drone photography, the price tag of this drone is going to mandate that you absolutely MUST HAVE thermal imaging for what you do. It’s also a bit of an adjustment going from 4k resolution in the visible spectrum with even a Mini-2, to seeing a very low resolution IR picture from both DJI and Autell when it comes with that kind of price tag. Definitely a niche product.

  41. FSUGRAD03 on October 22, 2021 at 9:23 am

    Word to the wise. If you plan on making a living with this Enterprise drone then you will need to purchase two. You always need a back up.

  42. Kenny Bellau on October 22, 2021 at 9:25 am

    I can picture it now:
    "We need your drone services! It’s an emergency!"
    Show up with this drone, set up, attempt to take off and: "DJI requires permission to fly in this area." After the orphans have drowned, IF you get permission, then, it’ll ask you to do an update to its software before takeoff. By now, the rescuers have drowned too.

  43. Jay Billups on October 22, 2021 at 9:27 am

    Are the flight restrictions the same as every other DJI drone or does the Enterprise gain some special access? I’d invest in this, but it’s already tough to fly in some places even with planning. I don’t mind the process, but doing something at a moment’s notice may be a problem. I’ve been denied some authorizations because my flight was less than 24hrs from the request

  44. Preps And stuff on October 22, 2021 at 9:27 am

    And a bunny!!!! 😂😂 great video 👍

  45. Eric K on October 22, 2021 at 9:30 am

    I want this drone for SAR work, but I need to work on some capital first.

  46. Waykat Services P/L Melbourne on October 22, 2021 at 9:33 am

    Wow ive only just spent $5K on a M2P with a flymore combo pack & some other accessories & now comes this, increadible dam I hate tje speed @ which technology moves.

  47. Area one on October 22, 2021 at 9:34 am

    So I hat was the top price point?

  48. David Cavazos PlusOne•GLKPNG on October 22, 2021 at 9:35 am

    RUSS, YOU said that you are usually piloting the mavic2 pro. I have been dealing with an issue with a battery. It won’t charge stops and one blinking green light in addition I can get it and place it in the compartment and automatically turns itself on no button push and hold? Dji had me send it to a local dealer but said batteries were not covered. I only had the drone 2 months. What ever they did it worked for a bit. But I started to blink again? I only have 23 charge cycles on it? Would you happen to know how to reset the battery ?

  49. Kevin Wells on October 22, 2021 at 9:35 am

    Thanks a bunch. I knew this was coming for a couple of years, and I’m still languishing. I guess it’s just age, and trying to figure out how to be useful. This is such a great area to find things to do, regardless of cash ambitions. I have the Mavic Air 2, now I wish I had bought this drone, because I like the area of searching for people, animals, etc. That really appeals to me. But I better do real estate first, and there’s a lot that around here. Anyway, great job again by you!

  50. Uncle Buck on October 22, 2021 at 9:37 am

    Love too see more on the app and the drone
