  6. ZDROJU_87 on April 15, 2021 at 1:20 am

    Awesome vid 🙂

  7. Tim Horst on April 15, 2021 at 1:21 am

    Ok, Trent, I’ve seen that camo shirt in enough videos to want my own… What brand is it? Where can I buy one?

  8. Joshua Ryan Blair on April 15, 2021 at 1:21 am

    Great info. Good video. Once again, well done!

  9. Joe Caraco on April 15, 2021 at 1:23 am

    Trent, you did not ramble at all. I would have liked to know the approximate cost of the drones that you spoke of.
    Your videos are always entertaining and informative. Keep up the good work.

  10. Brent Lewis on April 15, 2021 at 1:26 am

    Not sure if you’ve been told or seen this, but there’s suppose to be a way around the obsticale avoidance and alt detection for DJI. It’s not super technical, literally just put a piece of tape over the sensor before start up. That way when it starts up, theres not data that was fed to it so it just free flies. Personally haven’t done it, but have seen several people have success if it is something you’re still dealing with as far as the DJI drones.

  11. Robert Lovitt on April 15, 2021 at 1:26 am

    Enjoy the cold and snow.

  12. Steve T on April 15, 2021 at 1:27 am

    My wife calls me a drone all the time.

  13. Metallschwein on April 15, 2021 at 1:27 am

    Great doku!

  14. Madius on April 15, 2021 at 1:29 am

    What’s the name of the fpv frame?

  15. Mark Levi on April 15, 2021 at 1:31 am

    Thx for sharing your thoughts on some gear! I’ve been a drone & RC pilot for about 12 years. It would be nice to know the FPV specs (if possible)…any recommendations?

  16. mcva on April 15, 2021 at 1:32 am

    Can you fix the focusing issue when recording? Very informative but not very relaxing to watch it. Keep up the great work!

  17. Jay on April 15, 2021 at 1:32 am

    Yeath…Two free months on Skillshare, but you first have to give them your credit card…😫

  18. BodyAde Fitness on April 15, 2021 at 1:32 am

    Could you compare the Alta vs the DJI matrice 600

  19. Curley Home Inspections on April 15, 2021 at 1:33 am

    So, a few years ago, I invested into the 3DR Solo for home inspection. Worked fine until I could no longer buy a battery. There are ways to build a replacement but I also heard that can be dangerous. So, I’m stuck with a drone I can’t use…

  20. manoj mohan on April 15, 2021 at 1:36 am

    Love it. I wish you had rambled more

  21. Isaac Alonzo on April 15, 2021 at 1:38 am

    I’ve had a few bad experiences during shoots where the DJI app all the sudden updates and had image reception issues and had to borrow a phone for the test of the day. Alta X is the way to go for true control and even after almost 2 decades flying RC I sure had my reality check the first time a tried am FPV quad. Fire content as usual, maybe go deeper into what’s like a day of shoot with the Alta X.

  22. Tom Vrevc on April 15, 2021 at 1:39 am

    What brand is the FPV Trent?

  23. Aleksandr Nestrato on April 15, 2021 at 1:39 am

    Wow, wait! Where’s your octocopter monster?

  24. Metallschwein on April 15, 2021 at 1:40 am

    I would like have a inspire 2 for amateur-videos. What do you mean? Now, i have a mavic pro 2.

  25. Troy White on April 15, 2021 at 1:40 am

    "Man door" is my new favorite phrase, LOL

  26. HourGlassDJ on April 15, 2021 at 1:41 am

    Trent’ s next drone video: Powerlooping the Alta X recorded in 8k. 😁😎🤘🏻 #775 represent 💪🏻🤙🏻

  27. Chinelo DIGITAL on April 15, 2021 at 1:41 am

    Let’s just remember that Insta360 has a feature to stabilize the horizon on FPV Drones. It´s called "Flowstate" or "FPV mode" , not sure now. Here´s a video from Tommy https://youtu.be/n_AHr0r4Wo0

  28. SWITCHFliP on April 15, 2021 at 1:43 am

    yo Trent whats that frame for the fpv quad? looks cool kinda want to try it

  29. Krane on April 15, 2021 at 1:44 am

    You camera operator is making me sea sick. I’m not sure if he’s tired, drunk, or attempting to be trendy.

  30. Michael Young on April 15, 2021 at 1:46 am

    Love these videos!

  31. Cameron Smyth on April 15, 2021 at 1:46 am

    Really good intro, thanks for that 👍🏻

  32. Patricio Gomez on April 15, 2021 at 1:47 am

    I skip your intros because i’m jealous

  33. BradiKal61 on April 15, 2021 at 1:48 am

    i found this video because DJI came out with the DJI FPV, and i realized that an FPV drone is limited to certain types of camera shots. Great video, and I bet you will be doing a video on that new drone and where you think it fits in to film and commercial production.

  34. Fred MHz on April 15, 2021 at 1:51 am

    dude turn off all the sensors, and look out for trees…. easy, have a guy looking out for its path, like yourself. xD

  35. F.d T.f on April 15, 2021 at 1:51 am

    where’d ya get that far left drone….there in the intro picture…lolololol…hey its got a camera and its flying

  36. R. Tom Swezey on April 15, 2021 at 1:53 am

    Was with you all the way. Great video with awesome content !!!! Its nice to hear a real person talk about the products vs marketing pitches..

  37. Running Deer on April 15, 2021 at 1:55 am

    Thank you, Trent, for the information and comparison.

  38. Dirt Rider on April 15, 2021 at 1:59 am

    i love the vibes that comes with your videos 😍

  39. Andrew McGregor on April 15, 2021 at 2:02 am

    God bless Trent.

  40. Cory Haberstock on April 15, 2021 at 2:04 am

    Keep rambling man, I’m still watching! 👍✌️

  41. Tom Lepp on April 15, 2021 at 2:05 am

    Do you use any Cinewhoops? Just curios what you think about Andy Shens stuff?

  42. aerozg on April 15, 2021 at 2:05 am

    Thanks for the breakdown, i was curious what the industry grade cinema drones were, as opposed to the consumer grade DJI stuff.

    You will probably get your hands on the new Sony Airpeak drone once its released, i would love to hear your thoughts on that one.

    Have a great day!

  43. creamysbrianna on April 15, 2021 at 2:06 am

    A cool Video idea for the channel is to try to get together with Kelsey from 74gear on youtube and discuss the differences and similarities between the planes each of you flies.

  44. MurFam on April 15, 2021 at 2:06 am

    Wasn’t even interested in this video but here I am until the end still watching. I found it very intriguing with details you shared. Love your videos!

  45. Ray Stone on April 15, 2021 at 2:09 am

    What about the Autel l 6000k and 8000 k a day I’ve got both of them I’ve had a really good luck we can turn off all other safety stuff you can do 264and 265 Rall you can turn the Ludacris you can turn off all the safety Geo fencing on and off in 45 mile an hour winds it handled perfectly I mean it’s amazing how good-looking he was a thing he doesn’t give me all the crap that the DGA does you can turn off all that stuffI’ve had really good luck with it have you ever tried theAUTEL??try 2021AUTEI 2 6K 8K AND FLEUR if you have tell me you haven’t would you try it and tell me if you like it because I think I’m having good luck with it I’d really like your opinion

  46. Ryan Harbert on April 15, 2021 at 2:09 am

    As someone who’s flown drones for work, primarily real estate Autel drones are really good. None of that dji nanny firmware nonsense. And there customer service is awesome.

  47. Alvin on April 15, 2021 at 2:11 am

    DJI inspire 2 looks so good! I have only seen it once at my hometown. Some photographer trying to capture the city landscape

  48. Roman McClaine on April 15, 2021 at 2:12 am

    Trent could probably made a non-trivial side-business from teaching drone cinematography. Does he have courses anywhere?

  49. Dustin S on April 15, 2021 at 2:12 am

    Great video, always appreciate the knowledge!

  50. Schindlersfist on April 15, 2021 at 2:13 am

    I am also a drone pilot (And PPL) and my biggest complaint about the dji systems is the same. You end up focusing on fighting the drone feel more than focusing on the shot.
