So make sure you guys check those out now, of course, i’m. Not the only one that has a bunch of videos on this drone. I actually teamed up with a bunch of my friends on youtube. Everyone from beginner fpv drone pilots to professional pilots, some smaller youtube channels, some with massive youtube channels, but all in all, we all came together to give you guys a little bit more information about this drone in this video talking about tips on the new dji fpv Drone and even though we’re talking about dji fpv, drone tips, we’re gon na be giving away this right here, a dji mavic mini. So if you guys are interested in winning this dji mavic mini make sure you guys watch the entire video. I tell you throughout the video exactly what you’re going to need to do in order for you to win the mavic mini and to kick off these tips. We have jake sloane as well as farooq from iphonedo. Give you some tips on what to bring while you’re out there, as well as the modes that are on the actual dji fpv drone thanks aldrin. If you don’t know me my name’s jake and i test and review camera equipment and drones here in alaska and living in alaska working in alaska, one of the things i get to deal with most of the year is snow. Now snow is beautiful and it’s super fun to fly around, especially with fpv drones, but one of the tips i can give you is get a small landing pad like this they’re cheap, they’re, inexpensive, they’re, easy to pack and carry in a fpv bag or backpack, but They will save you a lot of trouble because when you take off and land in snow, the snow will blow around and possibly get sucked into the electronics of the drone.
Just like water and electronics, don’t mix well snow and electronics. Don’T mix well either. So, with a landing pad, you can land and take off from an area that will stay free of snow and another nice thing about having a little. One of these is that when you go to set up your fpv quad and get your equipment out, get goggles and controller batteries all ready to go. This landing pad will give you a nice little work surface that you can set everything on and keep it out of the snow thanks aldrin back to you, okay, so when it comes to modes, we have three modes, one the standard mode which the drone behaves just Like a regular drone, this is great if you’re a beginner and you’re just trying to get a sense of how the drone handles and how it flies. How fast it stops, how fast it turns back and then once you get better at it and then, when you want more speed, then we have the sport mode. Sport mode is more or less the same it’s just that the drone is faster and the sensors are turned off, so it relies more on you, but it still hovers by itself. So you still can fly this like a regular drone and if something happens you can just let the sticks go and the drone will just stop wherever it is and then you can do whatever you need to do and then go back and fly it.
However, when you switch to manual mode that’s, when you have the full control of this drone that’s, when your hands need to be on the sticks, all the time, also in standard and sport mode, there’s, a setting that you can set how much you like the drone To bank as it’s turning look into because that’s a lot of fun, it changes the way. The footage looks because this only has one axis gimbal other than that. Good luck, be careful check your surroundings and have a safe flight. There’S there’s! No! Going back from this! This is this is going to change the way you fly. Drones thanks jacob for rook and like for rick, said if you are starting out start hitting that normal mode work your way up as you go, there is absolutely no rush, especially when you get over to that manual mode. Next, we have xavier from drone x factor as well as 808 state talk a little bit more about what to do. If you find yourself a little bit of trouble, it’s a little button here on the very top before you strap your goggles on and send your fpv drone off into the abyss, here’s one major tip that you’ll want to take into consideration. If you’re, coming from gps drones like myself and getting into this fpv world for the first time with your dji fpv, drone flying with goggles, is definitely not the same like flying normal gps drones with the phone on your controller it’s, a completely different experience and as A result you have to treat it like it’s, something new, go to the same location that you probably learned to fly your gps drone somewhere, big somewhere, huge somewhere open with us, nobody’s gon na bother you it’s nice and clear wide open, not a lot of trees Or obstacles to block you somewhere that you’re familiar with not having to think about your surroundings, not having to take that into consideration, gives you the ability to completely focus on this new piece of tech.
I hope this was helpful. I’M sure there’s lots of other tips coming, take it all in and i will catch you guys whenever i can hello, everybody, it’s 808 state here from beautiful hawaii today on flight paths, brother aldrin’s, channel talking about dji fpv for somebody like me, who’s solely flown gps. The dji fpv offers some of the greatest safety features to transition you over from gps to fpv. A simple moment from here can go easily to there wow and then within a split second, it can go through. Where is it? Where did it go? Where did it go and because of that, you need this button. The pause button, besides that all the menu functions that are inside there actually give you the option to change things out, to make your transition from gps over to fpv way easier way, better way, faster and way safer to protect your investment, hello, everybody, and if you Guys, haven’t done so already subscribe to brother audrey’s channel. Take it easy so for the first part, if you want to be entered into the dji mavic mini video. The first thing, of course, like this video, make sure you guys are subscribed to the channel as well as share this video with some of your friends and family and for our next couple tips. We have ash from droning on as well as joshua bardwell professional fpv pilot talking a little bit more details about the camera. Hey folks, ash here from droning on and you’ve just bought your brand new dji fpv quad and you can’t wait to get it up in the sky and zoom it all over the place.
Now you may find the battery life rather frustrating. If you do that, and so i have two tips, first of all keep an eye on the speed that you’re flying the drone at you can see that in your goggle view and remember if you fly it at full speed, you’re going to be draining the battery At full speed as well so don’t expect to be able to conquer the skies and get 20 minutes of flight time because it just won’t happen. The other thing you can do is listen. These brushless little fpv quad motors really do scream when you’re at full throttle and so listen out for the quad. And if you hear it screaming, you know that you’re pushing it too far, because when you’re sat there flying it in the goggles you’ve become very disconnected from the actual boundaries that you’re pushing the drone to so fly conservatively and you’ll get good flight time. Thanks again to aldrin for letting me give my tips in this video, the tip that i’ve got for. You relates to camera up tilt. If you’ve got a dji drone, then you’re used to the camera being able to tilt up and down to change where you’re looking. But the thing that the dji of pv drone does differently is when you’re flying a drone in manual or we call it acro mode. The gimbal angle is fixed when i pitch forward to begin flying forward. The camera angle stays the same, and i end up looking down at the ground and the faster i try to fly and the more i pitch forward, the more i’m just looking at the ground and the less.
I can actually see where the heck i’m going. The way that fpv pilots handle this is we’ll dial in a certain amount of camera up tilt. Before we go fly and now, when i’m hovering, you can see that i’m just i’m kind of looking up in the air a little bit. But as soon as i put it into manual mode and begin flying forward now, if i center the horizon, this is about how fast i’m going so that’s my tip for you. As you start, flying in full manual mode. Don’T fly with zero degrees up tilt on the gimbal, like you would probably think dial in about 15 to 20 degrees of up tilt, that’s a good place for someone just starting out to start where you can still see what you’re, where you’re going but you’re not Going so fast that you’re just going to instantly crash and remember you – do have that break button here on the left, shoulder if you get yourself in trouble or just flip it back into normal mode, as you start wanting to go faster, you’re going to dial in A little more up till 30 35 degrees of up till 35 degrees of uptilt is where i run most of my freestyle drones that’s fast enough, but once you get above about 40 45 degrees of up till things get really crazy. Well, you ever try it out. Try it out in the simulator first you’ll see what i mean and for our next step we have billy kyle talking about the attitude limit as well as chuck talking about another accessory.
You might want for the fpv drone. Hey there, everybody how’s it going big thanks to aldrin for inviting me on to the video here to discuss some tips for the dji fpv drone. One of the biggest things that i think you should know about this drone is that it comes with an attitude limit which greatly helps you make the transition from full gps, aided flight to full manual flight. You see one of the things that really separates this drone from the rest of dji’s offerings is the fact that you’re able to take full control over the drone and fly faster. We call this acro mode, so you don’t have any help from the sensors or from the gps inside to keep it stable. This is what makes the fpv drone so great. All the features built in help you slowly transition from flying a gps drone to a fpv drone in acro mode. What i find helps the most, though, is that attitude limit so that, when you’re flying in manual, the drone is limited in each way that it can roll so that it won’t flip over entirely. This gives you the opportunity to understand what it takes to fly in manual mode and to get a feel for the controls and how the sticks work all without accidentally, flipping the drone upside down and dive bombing into the ground for those interested. This function can be found in the remote controller menu settings all the way at the bottom, in the gain and expo page.
So if you’ve just picked up dji’s fpv drone and you want to make the transition out of the gps aided modes into full manual flight, this right here is a crucial step again, so that you don’t crash your expensive investment anyway. Thank you again to aldrin for inviting me on to this video and hopefully, if you’ve got the fpv drone, you’re learning a ton from everybody else and the tips that they have to share i’ve been piloting mavics for four years now. I really wanted to get a drone that was fpv and cinematic. At the same time, dji’s hit a home run with this one right here. My first advice to a new pilot get yourself a set of nd filters, neutral density filters, like the freewell filters. I have here they’ll help you control your shutter speed and you can get a more cinematic look. Just like you get with your mavic, except you’ll. Have the fixed wing feel of the drone that’s just kind of epic? I do agree with chuck there make sure you guys do look into nd filters and some of the other accessories that are talked about in this video and for part two of this mini giveaway. Everyone in this video is gon na be linked down below in the video description, so make sure you guys are subscribed to their channel. So, of course, first and foremost, you guys are liking. This video subscribe as well as sharing this video and the big thing is make sure you guys are subscribed to everyone in this video.
All of their links are going to be down below in the video description now for our next tip. We have i justine someone who is very familiar with using drones and pretty much all of her storytelling videos, as well as mike from drone supremacy. Mike has a really good video on his channel as well talking about cinematic settings on his fpv drone. As someone who is very new to flying fpv, the dji fpv drone has been such a nice transition into the sport i’m very excited because it’s, something that i’ve always wanted to do, but i’ve been very scared to try it. This drone has definitely given me the confidence to just go out and fly and experiment, and the number one tip that i would have for anybody who has never done this before you just go out and you try it. I would definitely recommend trying to stay as still as possible, because if you’ve never flown like this before, do not get up and start walking around with the drone in your hand, because you can very quickly get motion sickness and if you do have to move your Drone or if somebody else is moving the drone, for you definitely take the headset off this, for me, has helped alleviate a lot of that. Once you kind of get used to the headset, it will become second nature and it does get a lot more comfortable. For me, just getting into flying fpv the thing that helped me the most was just doing the tutorials and flying on the app that’s connected to the headset.
With that i can fly and do basically whatever i want without fear of having to crash my drone. Hey everyone. This is mike from drone supremacy and if you just got the dji fpv drone or you’re wondering whether you should buy it, i would advise you to go for it. However, the first thing you need to do before flying the real thing, in my opinion, is to fire up a simulator. A simulator will allow you to master the basic controls, as well as just practice the moves and get familiar with how an fpv drone flies and crashes. So when you jump to the real thing, you can save yourself from crashing straight away and ultimately, just save you. Some money in the process, in fact i think, crashing and repeatedly trying again and again those same moves that just don’t work out for you is going to develop your muscle memory and help you in the long run to actually perform those same moves in real life. In this hobby, it’s all about muscle memory and how comfortable you feel with the remote in your hands, so the more you practice, the better you’ll fly, the simulators that i would personally recommend are velocitron and liftoff. They both work with the dji fpv remote controller and they both cost between 15 and 20 dollars. So thank you so much for having me aldrin and all the best to everyone, starting fpv in 2021. Now, for our last couple tips, we have ken from original adobo as well as i’ll, give you guys the 12th tip to round everything out before we get into the final details of the mavic mini giveaway.
All right, what’s good guys today, i’m going to teach you how to fly with fpv goggles. A lot of you just got your dji fpv drone and you’re, probably new to this so i’m, going to give you a couple of tips to help you from getting nauseated or feeling dizzy, step, one you’re going to want to make sure you take a wide stance. If you’re going to stand, my recommendation is if you’re flying for the first time is to sit down, but i struggle sitting down so hopefully this will help you take a really wide stance and use a lanyard when you are actually flying. This is really helpful. So you don’t have to worry about dropping your rc. If you get dizzy, the next thing you’re going to want to do is put your goggles down and keep your head in an upright position like so i like to push my shoulders forward a little bit. This helps lock my my head, so i don’t track my motion as i’m flying i like to call that stevie wondering when you’re tracking the motion – and you don’t even know you’re doing it. You don’t even feel it sometimes, but that can create some nauseousness feeling and some dizzy feeling, but if neither one of these things help you from feeling nauseated or feeling like you’re going to tip over, i always recommend sitting down that always does the trick all right. Hopefully, this helps you i’m gon na fly.
Some packs, try not to crash anything just stay original and for this final tip number 12. The one thing, i would say is inspect your drone after every flight, once you go into sport or manual mode, and you try to go into some of these areas that you normally wouldn’t try flying before. Of course, the great thing with this drone is that you do push the boundaries a little bit more. You try to hit gaps that you normally wouldn’t, try to go through trees that you normally wouldn’t do with some of the other drones out there, and by doing that, sometimes you do clip the wall. You’Ll clip a tree, you’ll clip a branch, and you don’t really realize it, because when you’re watching through your goggles, you don’t really see some of those micro movements that the drone might be encountering so, for my final tip, make sure you guys do inspect your drone. After every flight, especially if you are flying in tight quarters and for the final part of this giveaway make sure you guys do comment down below, let me know which one of these tips do. You guys found most beneficial, whether you’re a new pilot or even a seasoned vet that might have learned something new. Let me know in the comments section which one of these tips you found most useful for you now, once you’ve done all three of those things i’ve requested throughout this video and if you guys did miss something make sure you guys go back in the video and Watch what those first two steps were i’ll be picking a random comment winner from the comment section down below and if you are chosen i’m, just going to need you to verify all the other things i requested from you.
