    Been on the military, is a police officer and got lost hiking in the bush… 300 meters from a road… Enough said.

  2. Brian Green on April 26, 2022 at 6:17 pm

    Been saying this for a long time! If you get one you need one that isn’t GPS controlled!

  3. David Meola on April 26, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    What about drones that look like birds? Yes you trade off the hover ability but gain the natural look of nature.

  4. aussysurvival on April 26, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    A very useful tool.

    Licensing is communist.

    Lifetime photographer here. I bought a Mavic Air in January 2019 and it really expanded my perspective on the community. Rough spots, beautiful spots, aiding in the direction of interesting areas. The propellers are very noisy for the first 70-80 feet up or so but it’s not overwhelming even for my hypersensitive hearing. There are aftermarket ones for some makes/models which are much quieter but finding them can be a hassle. I’ve photographed so many wonderful sunsets and many bodies of water with my drone and it was fair to pay $855 + 3 batteries + additional tools to keep it running longer.

    Diy drones are FTW, cheap, durable, fixable, etc. Quad copters +flying wing are best combo

  8. Tzar Nick on April 26, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    They won’t let me watch your new video, constant buffering

  9. outbackeddie on April 26, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    How about attaching a small radio to the drone so you can deliver live voice messages, instructions, warnings, etc. to a recipient without actually delivering the radio to them? I think I will try that and see how it goes.

  10. Barskor1 on April 26, 2022 at 6:28 pm

    Blimp drones have a long flight window and can carry more equipment/cargo capability.

  11. Karl Eggers on April 26, 2022 at 6:29 pm

    I can now watch the “Total CHAOS” video in YouTube.

  12. Rigger Mortis FPV on April 26, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    I should do a video about this topic. Not a bad take, but there are a ton of options, some of which you can build yourself and are even smaller than things like the DJI Mini. A few notes on your video. GPS is NOT required to fly a drone that has stabilization or angle mode as it is known. Range is closer to 7 miles with most consumer retail models, however with different protocols and electronics (such as crossfire by TBS) you can extend that control link to double that easily, combine that with a vtx system sending back 1w and you’ll have range for days. On run time, 30 – 45 min is a pipe dream, the reality is closer to 25min for most drones. I run performance drones that will kill a battery in 3-10 min. On Wifi….DO NOT BUY A DRONE THAT USES WIFI, buy one that has occusync or a digital or analogue vtx. On props, sure have some extra, but honestly consumer stuff is so fragile I wish you luck with that. If you want a durable drone (they do exist) you will have to look elsewhere and invest some time to do some learning (Go to get FPV). On expense, you can get a durable small drone package from many suppliers for just a few hundred dollars (again check get fpv’s site). Note on using them for security and noise….again there are more options you are unaware of that are very quiet and hard to see from 20 feet away (I have a drone with a 65mm "wheelbase"). On guns…..again consumer best buy stuff will get shot down I agree, want to increase your odds of not getting hit ? I can tell ya how. ALL drones can be autonomous if you invest a little time in learning betaflight or neuralflight flight software, hell even i-Nav will work.

    thank you. good info.

  15. Paintplayer1 on April 26, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    Just took my drone out for its maiden voyage today. My fiance got it for me for Christmas but it has been too cold and windy to learn how to operate it until today. It can’t go very far from me because it’s WiFi, but about 100 feet in all directions with 100 ft of altitude is enough to get a really good idea of your surroundings in about a 3-4 mile raidus depending on your terrain, and the 4k video and pictures allow you to see with detail what’s going on down to the pedestrian level due to the great zoom capabilities of the camera. Very valuable ISR tool, I’m so thankful she got me this

  16. robert miller on April 26, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    IF you want to watch something good watch videos on how to disrupt drone control signals and or how to shoot them down.

  17. ChucklesM on April 26, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    I work for a construction company and we use drones every day to photograph earthworks progress and the like. It’s the norm now, every client expects almost daily updates with emailed photos. Environmental companies too.

  18. Red Spain on April 26, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    I started out with the phantom four great Drone stable love it but it’s too big you want something that you can throw in your pocket throw it into the sky see what’s going on bring it down put it in your pocket and get the hell out of Dodge. If I could get something that was as good as the maverick mini . I would the smaller the better. In good times there’s nothing like phantom bad times there’s nothing better than a mini two

  19. Clint Kysar on April 26, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    I know you are referring to after shtf but game seeking is illegal you cannot hunt the area for up to 2 days of flying in the area, also a rc airplane could potentially be quieter once airborne and probably use considerably less power for the amount of flight time.

  20. robert miller on April 26, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    <—- being older than dirt, I was taught that when lost if you go down hill you will reach a stream, – – – follow said source of water and it will go under a bridge – – – there will be a road on the bridge, – – – follow the road or sit down and wait for a passing car. I still catch rabbits in a box trap and eat them, so what do I know. Drone are cute, maybe I’ll take my bow and arrows and follow the easily seen drone back to you.

  21. Colin Dawson on April 26, 2022 at 6:41 pm

    Extortion shake downs and general mob activity if they have a good wind shake gyroscope system it will compensate with .22 rounds and can take cell phones and wallets. So best to know what types are flying by like in duck hunting. Some let no tragedy go to waste.

  22. Sandwich King on April 26, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    Great drones pros and cons analysis

  23. Sconnie John on April 26, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    I like drones that can be recharged with battery banks vs plug in. The dji mini 2 an their ilk, are light weight, far ranging, and long flying. They are lots of fun for recreation too.

  24. john0270 on April 26, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    I have absolutely no confidence in my dji mavic pro to have to actually rely on it for anything whatsoever lol. Seems every 10th time I fly it, something causes it to nearly have a fly away incident….. some days I just want to let it happen and be rid of the thing. Lately it’s some sort of compass error….. maybe it’s the solar flares 🤷‍♂️

  25. NASTyNESTOR on April 26, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Hey the video you JUST posted titled “it’s hitting the fan prepare for TOTAL CHAOS” keeps saying error connection try again but ALL YOUR OTHER VIDEOS play just fine re post please..

  26. Drewtonium on April 26, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    You guys should know just about any drone is easily trackable and easily jammed unless it’s board and software are encrypted and shielded to military grade. They can also be bricked from remote locations with easy .

  27. Dallas Brass on April 26, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    They won’t allow to watch your other video sir, that’s sad you got banned on that video, you must of said too much

  28. Mr Fixit on April 26, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Pigeons don’t use batteries, and worst case they are good with a little bbq 😆

  29. Mad Duck on April 26, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    I bought a DJI Ryze Tello for only £100 and it is great 100 meters of range may not sound like a lot but it will get above the tree line and you can see for miles with the camera

  30. Demetrius Stokes on April 26, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    Eyes in the sky

  31. Bravo Two Zero on April 26, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    I picked up the DJI mini 2 but am having problems connecting to it. There are a ton of videos showing the problem and it exposes several vulnerabilities with this system for SHTF.

  32. Easy Trips on April 26, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    You can also fix a polarized filter to your mini mav gimble. Need to locate schools of fish? Not exactly sportsman like, however when in a SHTF situation…

  33. Bob on April 26, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    If we end up in a conflict with china, DJI is not the drone you want to use.

  34. Isaiah Lewis on April 26, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    Good video.

  35. Jack Pepperdine on April 26, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    How much does that drone cost

  36. nunya bidness on April 26, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    It’s actually fairly easy to build a drone for the majority of the uses in the video. Keep in mind that DJIs, while somewhat ubiquitous, have issues related to control of the firmware and control of the drone itself (and the data it sends) and DJI sells products to be able to spot or take control of your drone. Building your own avoids these issues. Further, longer range control units can be used such as TBS. In addition, there are longer range video transmission units to pipe what the drones see back down. By using a directional antenna, you can minimize the likelihood of having your ground station spotted. With a ham license, you can legally use longer range control links in the UHF bands that would be outside of the usual 900Mhz and 2.4/5.8Ghz of the vast majority of consumer drones.

    One of the other uses of a drone both now and in SHTF is the ability to use NDVI to determine crop health. Knowing where to put water, fertilizer, or pesticides will save scarce resources and improve crop yields.

    If you build your own drone, you can utilize more available batteries that are non-proprietary and can more easily be charged by a variety of different power sources such as solar. This becomes more important as the supply chain problems mount (especially from China). Don’t forget that in much colder climates (like yours in Canada), lithium batteries don’t do well and may not even be able to charge.

    Also, Pixhawk based autopilots have the ability to be completely autonomous, use pre-planned routes, and many other features. The nice thing is that you control the firmware and any updates are optional. Newer GPS units on drones can use not only GPS but Glonass, Baidu, Gallileo, and others. Pixhawk units can also do dead reckoning for a brief time if there’s a temporary outage. They have an altitude hold function if GPS is completely gone so you can fly the vehicle relatively painlessly.

  37. Joe Kisanue on April 26, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    I never thought about this as an option, Great idea. Thanks for the info

  38. xamel94 on April 26, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    drones are high risk if you get one it needs to be an airplane not a helicopter the reason is because they move fast and cover a lot of area very quickly playback footage a helicopter can’t see everything around it it can be shot down while stationary the likelihood that someone will posses the wherewithal to get after it and find you is limited realistically you could use a plane for recon that’s about it

  39. Needed To Be Said on April 26, 2022 at 7:04 pm

    This was a nice reminder for when I take my next trip to some family land. I’ll be able to cover so much more of it visually. Also, nice to see a video from you that is so "end of life as we know it". I’m prepping but sometimes I need a break. Thanks.

  40. john reece on April 26, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Hey Nate , the videos that get restricted could you put them on your website ? I don’t know about that stuff but just thought i would ask . Thanks for all the info

  41. Jason Thomas on April 26, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Spotting for Hunting applications. I think there could be a huge advantage to taking a drone up and getting a birds eye view of a landscape in order to help coordinate where larger game trails or the animals themselves are located. This could really help hunters save time, calories,fuel and resources.

  42. Derrick Fortner on April 26, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Thanks for the info!

    RED ALERT. TODAYS VIDEO IS NOT UPLOADED

  44. Soldier for the Cross on April 26, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    I thought they are banned in parks in Alberta?

  45. Mrs Ladybug on April 26, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Did you take down April 24ths video?? Or did “they”?

  46. Null Dude on April 26, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Any drone i see over my property gets a 20-gauge ventilation. I have done it to one already. So satisfying.

  47. Borked on April 26, 2022 at 7:14 pm

    I fly the other type of drone. FPV quadcopter. You fly with goggles and a radio controller. Some race and freestyle with them. Look up MCK fpv for idea how fast these things move.

  48. Crystal Roberts on April 26, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Who knew buying my kids drones for Christmas was going to be something of value. I call that a parent win 🏆

  49. Damacles9 on April 26, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    I wonder if you could make a mesh network with dirigibles/mini-blimps especially with mutal aid or prepper communities? Maybe they can fly higher and have a wider coverage area? Or vastly expand a ham radio range? With the right size, you could mount a solar panel and loiter for longer periods (?). Hmmm…

  50. WC3fanatic997 on April 26, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    I can definitely see the usage and potential in using Drones . . . but only if you are part of a large network of people capable of fielding the resources to do so effectively.

    Otherwise in most instances I would constantly worry about people shooting them down, for many of the reasons you mentioned; being used as a scout by potential threats, spying, surveying, etc., which is what I would worry about.

    Shotguns and birdshot are cheap, wide-spread, and meant specifically to hit stuff flying in the air, and I have a feeling that regardless of the reasons, justified or not, these things would be dropping left and right if they get spotted; even a single pellet from a birdshot load hitting them could send them down, and you automatically lost the thing, regardless if it survives the fall, because chances are if it’s not too far out to retrieve, it’s been shot down by someone you dont want to expose yourself to in an attempt to get it.
