    They have used the DJI inspire in motion pictures in Hollywood from some of the most famous movies you’ve seen. Yeah it’s a toy 😂

    A clicking iris ?

  3. Oscar Díaz on July 11, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    The inspire feels like a toy…

    Thanks for posting your work vlog, have been following a few USA aircraft vids lately and came across you.. purchashed my first drone a couple of months ago, done a couple of webnars and have just purchased a basic course, yet to complete, ex RAF, have flown gliders in my youth the drone is a pre retirement treat so I can record some footage whilst I am out in my canoe, boy you were lucky with your engine failure landing and subsequent recovery. Looking forward to watching more of your stuff. Stay safe. Gavin.P Suffolk England.

    Strapping the gopro to the 100k drone. Big move.

    Wait.. is your cinema drone (that you use to carry a camera) more expensive than your plane (that you use to carry you and your wife?) #priorities

  8. Bailey Galvin-Scott on July 11, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    In that last rooftop scene were you guys trying to match the dolly shot end with the drone shot taking off?

  9. Philly Special on July 11, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Have you ever done movies? If so which ones:)

  10. Photodeus on July 11, 2021 at 11:48 pm

  14. Micah Rockwell on July 11, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Loaded question: how did you get into the aerial cinematography industry?

  15. Martin Clemmons on July 11, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Pretty sure this is the movie The Circle?

  16. NewCenturyGuitar on July 11, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    Is there anyone in the world who actually likes that kind on music? Spoils the video for me.

  17. Brett Baker on July 12, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Hey man how are you, just wondering if you have any tips for flying line of sight?

    Thanks
    Brett

  19. Ray on July 12, 2021 at 12:03 am

    4:05 Were you shooting that Jumanji 2 scene of them dropping from the top?
    (edited) Naww I don’t think so.

  20. Tiernan McGonigle on July 12, 2021 at 12:04 am

    He literally flys drones that cost almost 3 times the cost of his plane

  21. Adam Lehr on July 12, 2021 at 12:05 am

    Is that a alta

  22. Nological on July 12, 2021 at 12:07 am

  23. Tsb Lemon on July 12, 2021 at 12:08 am

  24. Johnny Boy on July 12, 2021 at 12:08 am

  25. Jan on July 12, 2021 at 12:08 am

  28. Rico Rico on July 12, 2021 at 12:09 am

    Im building an open cockpit airplane complete with portable shot gun. The plane is called ….DRONE SLAYER 😈

  29. Pauly G on July 12, 2021 at 12:11 am

    I know I’m playing catchup here, but it was cool to see what you do with drones. Didn’t need a ‘break’ from flying but this was cool. The occasional squirrel is all good.

  30. Olivia Anne on July 12, 2021 at 12:12 am

    How did you get into this career?

  31. Tinkerwith on July 12, 2021 at 12:14 am

    Mate buy a paramotor

  32. ItsADingey on July 12, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Trent, why does the drone look upside down at (7:03) please explain?

  33. Marcus G on July 12, 2021 at 12:17 am

    Film making 2020, "I’m a drone pilot", No, you are a gear gopher. Click bait

  34. ICanDoItMyself on July 12, 2021 at 12:18 am

    My first and only so far is the DJI Spark. Justified the purchase because it would help me get my DIY solar system approved for me to install and I’d be able to use it for my channel as well.

  35. Drone Movies Sweden on July 12, 2021 at 12:20 am

    wow great

  36. Ken’s PAD - photo audio digital on July 12, 2021 at 12:21 am

    When piloting a heavier drone in the city does it help in general to wear a vest “FAA licensed?”

  37. Chris Lostumo on July 12, 2021 at 12:21 am

    pushing box truck that’s grip work.

  38. Table Rock Mobile Detail on July 12, 2021 at 12:22 am

    You’re kinda a douche

  39. Mike Scarborough on July 12, 2021 at 12:23 am

    You know you’re making it in the drone photography business when you can say the DJI Inspire is "too much of a toy."  I totally get the point about manual iris control, however.

  40. Brent Beatty on July 12, 2021 at 12:23 am

    West Virginia steel worker who used to live in Colorado! I have a DJI mavic Air 2! I’m looking to get into this business

  41. Anamie TV on July 12, 2021 at 12:24 am

    wow, multirotor drone, I hope i also like you.

  42. Luca & Twins on July 12, 2021 at 12:24 am

    very impressive

  43. Carson Hardy on July 12, 2021 at 12:24 am

    That redwood to skyscraper transition though!

  44. Trent Palmer on July 12, 2021 at 12:24 am

    Hey guys, no bush planes in this one, hope you guys don’t mind me sharing a little about what I do for a living. Let me know if you guys would like me to show more stuff like this or just stick with the bush flying. Oh, and happy Friday!!!

  45. LUXURYAFRICA on July 12, 2021 at 12:27 am

    Great to see a day in the world life of Trent Palmer. Interesting how you are the pilot and then you have a cameraman doing his thing. Makes complete sense. That BIG BOY drone looks the BOMB!

  46. Ally Wilke on July 12, 2021 at 12:27 am

    For the longest time I thought you said you flew drugs for a living,my bad hearing.😂

  47. Goro Goro on July 12, 2021 at 12:28 am

    0:42 UFO appears? or maybe a drone?

  48. Finn's travels on July 12, 2021 at 12:29 am

  49. cameron hendrix on July 12, 2021 at 12:29 am
