DJI MAVIC AIR 2 Drone Wrap REVIEW: Saved My Drones Life!
This sticker wrap that you can paste onto your drone and it’s made out of a 3m material, comes in all different kinds of colors, and if you choose one of these bright neon colors, it makes it really easy to see in the sky. First, when i got this thing, i wanted to make a video of myself installing it and kind of like a tutorial, but i was putting it on. I was just like just wanted to test it before i started filming and it was actually like pretty fun to do so. I just kept doing it, and i was just watching tv with my sister and i’m like i’d. Rather, just keep doing this with her and myself and make a video about it. So i skipped that part, but i still can do a review on what it’s like to put it on to fly with it and if that sounds interesting, let’s get into it. First thing let’s talk about is just was it easy to put on and i would say on a scale of one to ten? Maybe it was like a seven like it’s, not easy. If you want, i mean it’s easy to put on, but if you really want it to look good, you have to spend some time and they have really good instructions and on their video it has time stamps and for each sticker corresponds with a different number. So if you want, you can just click on that number and you can watch how the guy does it and it’s it’s really good and basically most of them are pretty self explanatory, but sometimes you want to know which one you push down.
First, before you put the other sticker down, another thing that i noticed that was pretty convenient and kind of gives you a little bit of wiggle room is that each of the layers are a little bit longer than maybe necessary. So you can kind of wrap the seam around it and that helps it just get a good seal and you don’t find any like little lines that didn’t get covered up by the stickers. So now that we talked about the installation it’s just made out of 3m sticky adhesive and according to their website, it’s very high grade let’s get into the effectiveness and what it’s like with the results and flying it. So i got ta say it blows me away with how bright these things are in the sky, especially since i picked the neon orange orange. Is my favorite color when i’m flying this it’s like flying like a traffic cone in the sky? I mean no matter how far away it is, if it’s, in the line of sight, you’ll see like an orange speck and it’s, something i don’t know it’s hard to believe i’m kind of used to drones being kind of hard to see. I guess, since they’re, gray and stuff and the sky can be blue and gray, and it always makes it a little bit harder to see. So i think that was really cool and then the main reason why i got this was actually for the visibility um.
If you watched one of my last videos, i was flying my mini tube and it lost connection and it either landed in the pacific ocean or on a rock, and i feel like if i would have this bright color. It might have gave me a little bit of better chance to seeing it before it crashed and then maybe, if it was crashed onto the rock it would blend it. Wouldn’T blend in as much because all the rocks in that spot were like gray and tan and is about the same size as the mini so that’s. Why i got this um. I also got these cool little legs by pgy tech with flashlights. So i got all this stuff for christmas. I put on my list. I was like okay, i don’t want to lose any more drones, but funny story kind of has to do with what we’re doing and why this rap really paid off um. I really think it saved my drone’s life. Let me turn off this light and how did it save my drone’s life that’s a good question adam. Thank you for asking um, okay new year’s. I was in kansas city and i was taking some pictures and some really cool video downtown and i’m gon na stick with the case. I even look back in the dji fly at the finger records and stuff, but as i was landing, the drone in between two large buildings on the street.
It just went out of control and just smashed into the side of a building and instead of dropping down. Like you would think with gravity like it should it got stuck on the ledge of the windowsill on the outside of the building and it’s, like one of those things that you couldn’t even do this, if you tried even for like a million dollars, i do not Think it would be possible to to do that unless you’re, like the dude, perfect guys that make those really cool trick shots, but even those guys would probably have trouble. So it got stuck up there, there’s snow on the windowsill and it’s a concrete building, and that would blend in perfectly with this gray drone, and it was really hard to see even just because it was at night. So i had this bright orange, reflecting made it easier to see and then until the battery ran out, i could still see the red lights and so that really helped. I ended up having to leave it there overnight, because i couldn’t think of a solution to get it down, so it’s been a night outside freezing weather in the snow and the stickers seem to be holding up quite well. So i think that was a pretty good test on how this wrap holds up and also just like the durability would be. This stuff is really strong and it doesn’t just tear off the only spots where it’s torn off is where the drone actually got.
Cracked and it came off with the plastic, but there really aren’t any spots where it’s starting to peel or anything like that. You can see there’s some like cracked off spots here, but that’s, actually, because the body of the drone is cracked and it also did hit the cement really really hard once it got down from the window. I’M gon na be making a video about this, but basically it’s about a hundred feet high had someone help it get out the window that worked at the hotel, they bumped it instead of being able to grab it and go like this. The drone fell about 100 feet right onto the concrete and that’s. Why i have this mangled up drone, but i do have the dji k refresh just got to send this thing in um, but i need to take off this wrap first and so yeah you send it in pay your deductible. I always recommend buying the dji care refresh um i’m – definitely probably one of dji’s best customers. I have a lot of. I bought a lot of drones for them. The reason why i was happy about just getting the drone down is because you have to have the actual body of the drone to be able to get it sent in to warranty. So if you want to see a video about, if it’s worth it and how to do it, you can click up here, but let’s get into the removal process and i’m wondering if it will leave a sticky residue or, if it’ll, just peel off nicely on the Description i bought this on amazon.
It said it will not leave a sticky residue which is good peel. It off super easy peeling off. No sticky residue let’s get this big guy off. I just cut my nails so it’s a little hard for me to do it, but yeah look at that. It’S just peeling off all in one piece and no stickiness so i’d have to agree with them. It does not leave a sticky residue and that’s going to wrap up this video with the wrap grade. Um i’m satisfied with the product it’s available on amazon. Did i say, amazon it’s available on amazon, just like pretty much everything else in the world. There’S a ton of different colors, i chose orange because it’s my favorite color and yeah. If you enjoyed this video, give it a big thumbs up. That means a lot to me.
