    Hey Jack I am 13 and have a crazy question, I was wondering if you had a spare drone you could give me?

  2. Mr BaBy4rD on April 23, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    Parrot is a France brand?

  3. Nerd Nerfer on April 23, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    I checked out the first few lower end models and I REALLY like the Tello version. Good price range, rechargeable batteries, great total package for a 10 year just starting. EXCEPT the need for a phone. I know…….YOUR 10 YEAR DOESN’T HAVE AN IPHONE 895XIT LTD?!?!?!?! WHAAAAATT??!?!?! Haha. He doesn’t. He just bought one from Walmart for about $60 and I am really impressed with this things control, remote, flight, and everything. Except the remote uses AA batteries and the drone itself has to be plugged in to charge so once it’s dead it’s dead. 1 hour and 40 minutes to recharge. So….any suggestions for a young fella that is interested in the video capabilities, for fun, but has a remote and rechargeable/changeable batteries? Thanks for the video!

  4. Af Tech on April 23, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    Ryze Tel range is 20meter
    If u have wifi6 30meter
    Very useless
    Maybe edicational

  5. W.E.S. Wesley entertainment studios on April 23, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    The mini 2 is the best drone ever built. It has a optical zoom also.

  6. Tool Dog on April 23, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    unless you can turn a profit then a drone isnt worth over $200

  7. Railfanner on April 23, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    i have a $6,500 drone

  8. Adam Ball Southend Guy Paranormal on April 23, 2022 at 6:15 pm

    I bought the Mavic Air 2. Personally, for all it’s features v price I’d go out and and say it’s the best VFM drone available. Picture quality is beautiful and smooth, flight time is good and it flies superbly. Tracking and POI modes work really well.

  9. Mark louie Argamosa on April 23, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    I wish I have a drone but I don’t have money for them

  10. 917Zdott on April 23, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    I need one for footage

  11. Kris Kringle on April 23, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    Nine out of ten Drones Prefer Dragons Breath Shotgun Ammo, Shoot em down boys!!!! just your nazi USAF/ARMY spying on you

  12. Zoso on April 23, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    Just need something with tracking and has 4K video

  13. Dave on April 23, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    This is the best video I’ve ever seen. You did an amazing job. I highly appreciate that you made this video.

  14. Brody McCain on April 23, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    You’re video is very helpful.

  15. Alvaro Jacome on April 23, 2022 at 6:22 pm

  16. Half Chrome on April 23, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    I’ve made an updated video. Check that out here. https://youtu.be/Lj3wrkvdg2I

  17. JBart812 on April 23, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    What is the best drone for me? I don’t use any modes. I just want to explore as far as I can and take pictures from the sky. I’ve had a Upair One and Roku F11 Pro. Neither have the range I want.

  18. Creaturefpv on April 23, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    What do you think about the f11 two axes gimble with built in electric stability at around the 150 to 200 dollar point? Gps of course. Foldable as well.

  19. luis velasquez on April 23, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    Can you fly the rise tello without a phone, I live in a third world country with limited internet access. Can you recommend drones that don’t need a phone, thank you in advance sir.

  20. Florian BLATTNER on April 23, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    Great video !

  21. sreekanth nlk on April 23, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    ok!! decided – I am never gonna buy one, it’s all damn expensive!!!

  22. Zee Best on April 23, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    1:29 ~$100 Ryze Tello. No GPS means INDOOR ‘follow me’!
    I want a good SELFIE drone, not a good drone that does selfies… OUTSIDE!

  23. Mr. Mirks on April 23, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    Love the list you made but wish you talked more about the app features or what’s it like flying them. I bought a $100 drone off Amazon and when it’s windy the drone isn’t strong enough to fly properly.

  24. Quentin Bell on April 23, 2022 at 6:34 pm

    Can you make a video about the EXOPro Blackhawk ?

  25. Type Dash on April 23, 2022 at 6:35 pm

    Cons: Don’t fire lethal missiles

  26. Gurpreet Singh on April 23, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    Nice video but before I go I would like to say this dude looks a lot a like Roman Abramovich and Ned Luke the voice actor of Michael from GTA V

  27. Derrick Cohee on April 23, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    Hopefully someone responds quickly…I’m in the market for 1st drond. Looking at the Mini DJI, decent price, and camera for money. I’m only using it for reference shots for my landscape oil paintings. Would it be sufficient for that? Sounds like it. I’m not making intros for ligit YT videos or nothing like that, not pro photography. Just need higher perspective on certain landscapes that I want to paint. Thanks for ANY feedback!

  28. Punx Not Dead on April 23, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    How about holy stone 720e? 300$ gets kit with 2 batteries.

  29. Miguel P on April 23, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    Sort of focused on the quality of video and photos, but an overall good video.

    For me, I need a drone that has great intelligence, obstacle avoidance, and follow me features. An adventure drone for kayaking, mountain biking etc…

  30. Google User on April 23, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    How about the longest lasting drone, and part availability like replacement motors. I just had a Neheme outdoor honor drone that my wife got me for Christmas. I loved it for a beginner drone for a month and then one of the motors went out. Cant get a motor for it. ☹️

  31. Nick Thompson on April 23, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    No Hubsan?

  32. Chris McCollum on April 23, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    It would be helpful if you would date when your videos are released so we can all stay current on your latest info.

  33. Colton English on April 23, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    So you wouldn’t recommend the mini se I don’t think it was released when you made this video any input would be appreciated I just want a cheap starter drone if I like it I’ll save for the fpv dji drone the black one that comes with goggles

  34. duMaurier on April 23, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    I’m loving this rural town… what state is this in? looks like a peaceful and comfortable place to live.

  35. Jasmijn ariel on April 23, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Sadly the dji mini doesnt have tracking mode

  36. kds gutkn on April 23, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    I want a wall full of drones like that

  37. Ken Cotton on April 23, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    Im wondering why you did not mention the Holy Stone 720G, which has image stabilization, 4K video with a two axis gimbal for $299. Perhaps you could talk about why you do not like these drones, because on paper, it looks like a good value. It would help me in my purchase decision to know what you look for when evaluating drones.

  38. Kids Cars and Toys on April 23, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    where to register Mavic mini 2 living in California?

  39. fm finlay on April 23, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    I would say the l900 pro is way better then the tello, it has gps, return to home and gps stabilisation etc, and even has an optical flow sensor for inside flying, and it has a range of over 300 metres with fpv and 1000 metres with controller

  40. Chris Jones on April 23, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    Pilot needed near Columbus Ohio $400 hour plus incentives

  43. Second Chance on April 23, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    What’s the best drone?

    The one that suits your needs the most.

  44. sausagemcstufin on April 23, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    U sound like a fanboy

  45. Rosario Roberts on April 23, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Great video! I’ve got a Parrot Bebop 2, my first drone. It’s amazing. Very easy to use, nice camara, very stable. A good drone to start with.

  46. Ghost quarterback 123 on April 23, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    I have d20 drc drone with a had camera on it

  47. Steve Roe on April 23, 2022 at 7:05 pm
