    Can I have one of your Drones? please.

  3. ClaytonMasse on October 31, 2020 at 1:10 pm

    Can an FPV be used with any of these drones?. Specifically the mavic air2. And secondly can I use my own controller (tx16s) with the mavic air 2?

  4. thats f'ed up on October 31, 2020 at 1:11 pm

    I wish i watched your video before buying a crapy drone for 300 without a gimbal. My contixo f24 pro drone just gives me a 4k fisheyed seizure inducing mess

    Check out the hubsan Zino pro. Way better than the mavic mini. The camera quality on that was better than my Mavic air 2

    No expert but I have flown several different drones and realized for real estate and inspections there is no inexpensive drone. MA 2 zoom – Detail is important and digital zoom does not capture the imperfections l would be looking for. My 2 cents.

  14. Sumpthink on October 31, 2020 at 1:26 pm

    I have ordered a drone it’s one of them

  15. Hayden on October 31, 2020 at 1:26 pm

    I want the mavic mini but it ain’t compatible with my phone

  16. Tesla Cyber Truck on October 31, 2020 at 1:26 pm

    Aawwwww I see your black bugs 3 in the background 🥺, I used to have that one

  17. eddieb232 on October 31, 2020 at 1:27 pm

    I lost my mini and just upgraded to the air 2 and I was alittle up in the air about spending $1000 (fly more pack) on a drone for a hobby but now that I have it, I am happy I did get it. But watching ur video i noticed u said the pro is the only mavic that has the zoom but my air 2 does have it also. It has 4k wide, 4k zoom x’s 1 & x’s 2 and in 1080p mode it actually has up to x’s 4. Is this a recent update by dji or did I just mis understand what u said about it. Ty for ur video, very educational.

  18. sols ib on October 31, 2020 at 1:28 pm

    Please what drone can you recommend for security surveillance of my community, that is quite affordable for about $500 or below?

  19. Jay Co on October 31, 2020 at 1:28 pm

    Thank you

  20. Rosedonna purdy on October 31, 2020 at 1:29 pm

  21. Matt Cero on October 31, 2020 at 1:29 pm

    Awesome video guy! As a motorcycle rider who wants to VBLOG is trips, you sold me on the Mavic Mini! Thank you.

  22. Half Chrome on October 31, 2020 at 1:31 pm

    The SG906 has a two-axis gimbal, not a three-axis gimbal. It does not stabilize in the yaw direction. Sorry.

  23. Graey Paragas on October 31, 2020 at 1:33 pm

    Please you give me drone on Philippines if you want to go to Philippines please give me a drone 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😞😞😞😞😞😞😭😭

  24. Mr.SnugglyDick on October 31, 2020 at 1:33 pm

    All djii really???

  35. bulldogboy100 on October 31, 2020 at 1:49 pm

    Thoughts on the Hubsan Zino Pro?

  36. Vasileios Kons Kond on October 31, 2020 at 1:56 pm

    So this is another Best "DJI" drone video with some extra additions (see Parrot)….To me, the Mavic mini is overall inferior to other budget drones. It’s great for close-range capturing aka Selfie Flycam but it suffers from poor stability issues in windy conditions.

  37. John Faasse on October 31, 2020 at 1:56 pm

    Sg907 don’t buy that thing it’s so bad the cam is a scam watch reviews don’t believe the sellers

  38. Jerry Ebner on October 31, 2020 at 1:58 pm

    Nice video , how about a Ruko F11

  39. CHARLESF55 on October 31, 2020 at 1:58 pm

    Wut The cheapest drone you can find?

  40. Michael Lowe on October 31, 2020 at 1:59 pm

    Most of the time I would want to use a drone would be flying over water. If I get one, I want it to be ok if I have to land it in the water and take off again or scoop it out with a net. I have seen some waterproof ones but the price was much higher. This just seems like a feature most people would want. Are there reasonably priced ones with this feature that dont give up on the other features?

  41. AerialLensVideo on October 31, 2020 at 1:59 pm

    Thanks for the video – very helpful!
    I have an older DJI P3A drone for real estate, but thinking it would be cool to keep that little Mini model handy in my vehicle for quick elevated stills without all the prep required. I used to do "mast photography" but that another story. My only reservations are that the DJI Mini apparently does not create RAW files(?) and a concern that the Fly app has the cur-sed geofencing (which is none of DJI’s business — Grrr! MY resposibility, thank you). Regarding that, I use Litchi for the bigger drone…and training and common sense…and of course authorizations when required.

  42. The Scattered Thought on October 31, 2020 at 2:00 pm

    Lot of good Info Here thanks!

  43. Janai Gee on October 31, 2020 at 2:00 pm

    I just wanna fly a good distance and really good fly time

  44. Pradeep Bharadwaj on October 31, 2020 at 2:03 pm

  45. ABDUL SHARIF on October 31, 2020 at 2:04 pm

    I am planning on purchasing the new "dji Mavic Mini 2" (For quick videos and Photos) Can fit inside my cargo pockets… Small Backpack…

  46. MODERN DESIGNS on October 31, 2020 at 2:06 pm

    Any news on the Ryze – Tello 2?

  47. Shaheer Burney on October 31, 2020 at 2:06 pm

    7:20 I’m sorry but the DJI Mavic air 2 cant cook dinner

  48. AlexDoesRandomStuff on October 31, 2020 at 2:06 pm

    I’m a beginner, never flown a drone (except for some 40$ one) and my first drone is…

    Mavic air 2!, used tho but works way better than any toy drone!

  49. AgentAstro 536 on October 31, 2020 at 2:06 pm

    Extra $400 for ZOOM

  50. Alex Killer28 on October 31, 2020 at 2:07 pm

    I have a budget of 400 dollars but I want a big drone because I live in Houston and the winds are real strong and the small ones are dragged by the wind
