  4. ItsADingey on June 20, 2022 at 7:08 pm

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

  5. Bailey Galvin-Scott on June 20, 2022 at 7:08 pm

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

  6. Trent Palmer on June 20, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    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!!!

  9. Clyde Sweetfeet Livingston on June 20, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    can anyone tell me what movie it was???

  10. Fall Line Japan on June 20, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    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

  11. Tiernan McGonigle on June 20, 2022 at 7:12 pm

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

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

  13. Chris Lostumo on June 20, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    pushing box truck that’s grip work.

  14. Robert Ottwell on June 20, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Your flying the drone and someone else is operating the camera?

  15. Brett Baker on June 20, 2022 at 7:20 pm

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

    Thanks
    Brett

  16. Gordon Quickstad on June 20, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Pretty cool. Thanks for the ride.

  17. Jacob Oakeson on June 20, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    How does one get started in this kind of career?

  18. AZVIDS on June 20, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    Cool

  19. Roy Nelson on June 20, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    That is some really bad ass equipment bro top-notch freaking awesome 💯👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👊🏽👊🏽

  20. Martin Clemmons on June 20, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    Pretty sure this is the movie The Circle?

  21. Joshua Granger on June 20, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    Dude that is freakin rad! I don’t know how I missed this video? You and Mike patey have been my biggest motivators for getting my own airplane. Got an old tri-pacer and am just waiting on the FAA so I can solo. Like I had mentioned on Mike’s last scrappy video this flying stuff has helped me mentally bigtime. I’m a Marine combat vet who struggles with ptsd and being angry at our country. Flying has been the only thing that takes it all away. Bought my plane right before my dad died this summer. Flying has also really helped me so far dealing with losing my dad…. so I know this is long winded and don’t know if you will see it but if so thank you!! Hopefully I can make it to Oshkosh to meet a few of you motivators and snag some good energy.

  22. Ryan Collins on June 20, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Any advice for someone that is looking to start playing around with drones and eventually build a business out of it? Get a 107 Certificate? Best drone to start with?I love all your videos. Thanks for being an inspiration!

  23. QUE BONITO ES PANAMÁ on June 20, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    Claro continúa está interesante detrás de camaras Gracias

  24. The Carpro Connoisseur on June 20, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    You’re kinda a douche

  25. Carson Hardy on June 20, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    That redwood to skyscraper transition though!

  26. JohnBrug726 on June 20, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Anyone recognize the movie that he’s filming?

  27. Paddy Müller on June 20, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    @Trent Palmer as this is now 3 Years old. Is the Film now live? Can we see your shots somewhere? If you are allowed to tell at least

  28. Zane on June 20, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    Which guy is the Iowa fan?

  29. gavin plant on June 20, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    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.

  30. C M on June 20, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Thats looks like a marvel movie? Scarlet witch ending / dr strange beginning

  31. Spotlyght Creativity Studios on June 20, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    Im having serious déjà vu, i fell like i’ve seen this already, but i don’t remember youtube channel at all

  32. Olivia Anne on June 20, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    How did you get into this career?

  33. Goro Goro on June 20, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    0:42 UFO appears? or maybe a drone?

  34. Ray on June 20, 2022 at 7:42 pm

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

  35. Pauly G on June 20, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    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.

  36. Ally Wilke on June 20, 2022 at 7:44 pm

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

  37. Mike Scarborough on June 20, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    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.

  38. ICanDoItMyself on June 20, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    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.

  39. Luca & Twins on June 20, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    very impressive

  40. Wagner Gitirana on June 20, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    “ that’s how we have a birth by a tree” …,he forgot to say : I am Groot! 🤣🤣

  41. Anamie TV on June 20, 2022 at 7:52 pm

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

  42. Jack Walter on June 20, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    The dolly arch to flyaway shot is one of the coolest I’ve seen

  43. Philly Special on June 20, 2022 at 7:55 pm

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

  44. Adam Uap on June 20, 2022 at 7:55 pm

  45. Brent Beatty on June 20, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    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

  46. Rico Rico on June 20, 2022 at 7:56 pm

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

  47. Nological on June 20, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    this guy deserves more subs tbh.

  48. OllyR on June 20, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    2 years on what we’re you filming

  49. Micah Rockwell on June 20, 2022 at 8:00 pm

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

  50. LUXURYAFRICA on June 20, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    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!
