Kingdoms falls: Music, hey guys, thanks for tuning in check it out, it’s the mini 2, and today we are doing a high wind extreme wind. Almost uh flight test see how this thing handles. If you guys remember, i did the same test on the mini one in these same exact conditions. Just about the same time of day, it’s got to be blowing about 20 30 mile per hour gusts at times, so we’re gon na see how this thing does compared to the mini one it’s supposed to have a little bit more powerful motors. Of course, this is lithium polymer battery, so it can push out more power than those lithium ions we’re going to be recording the video in here. So you can see, while it’s getting whipped around just how that maintains stable video, and i also try to record my screen on my phone. So you guys can see kind of every aspect of how it is flying in pretty extreme wind anyway. Let’S go ahead and get started and see how the mini 2 does in crazy wind let’s. Do it Music, whoa we’re, getting some crazy gusts right now, geez louise that’s got to be about a 30 35 gust right. There let’s get this thing up, uh, just by tapping on the screen and doing a takeoff holding take off there. We go man, i just felt some sprinkles, hopefully it doesn’t rain on us. So look at that thing. It is really fighting that wind and it’s.
Just amazing to me how this one’s a little quieter than the mini one. I love it. It has a lower tone to it. Mini one sounds like a little mosquito, but this one maybe sounds like more like a dragonfly anyway. I hope that video up so really keep track of the video on the camera that i’m filming with the drone, because it’ll really tell you just you can see the drone flopping around and stuff it’ll really tell you how stable that is. If you can get some good shots, even in these kind of windy situations right now, i’m in normal mode, so we’ll see how this works. Try some stuff and then we’ll, try, maybe even sport mode and see if it can fight it a little better. But i have no doubt that this thing’s going to handle the wind better than the mini one, because i just did, if you guys, missed my weight capacity test versus between mini one and mini two. The mini two did way better. It just has more power, so, as you can see, we’re down to 91 battery power on the top right, so it’s gon na choose some power. Fighting the wind right. Look at that flag just going here, i’ll turn the the drone over. So you can see the flag in the drones view that’s how windy it is right. Now guys it’s got to be about 30 at times gusting and then up there 100 feet above it’s gon na be more right, so let’s just do some normal mode flying uh.
Let’S, do maybe just turn it a little bit, so we can see hey guys thanks for tuning in thanks aloha, for being here with me and watching. My videos really appreciate it anyway. Let’S keep going so you saw that gus pushed it back a little bit i’m. Just pushing forward and it’s fighting that wind no problem remember this is normal mode, so we’re, just gon na fly around a bit and just see how it kind of responds to just normal flying and uh, and then we’re gon na go up a bit. So if i go up, we’re gon na get really just right into the really hardcore gusts and wind. So here we go i’m going to go up, maybe maybe about a hundred feet, and you know what i’m going to do is i’m, going to go up just above the launch pad and turn the camera down and we’re going to see if it wanders back from The launch pad so i’m turning the camera down. This will give us a good idea if we get that um launch pad in the middle of the screen, while we’re going up it’ll give us a great idea if the drone is being pushed back right, it’s even hard for me to get it staying right. There wow what’s, going on whoa, okay it’s, just pushing back i’m gon na switch into sport, whoa, okay, so there you go. Did you see when i pushed the camera down? It goes into like a less powerful mode.
That was very interesting when i switched into sport right here with this button, it flipped the camera back up, and then i had my power back so be very careful with pointing the camera down too far when you’re fighting wind let’s try that again in sport mode Man, it’s just really whipping down it’s raining too on it, so this is gon na be kind of a rain sprinkle test, so i’m gon na get that camera down again let’s see if it has that same issue in sport, picking it up a bit, you can Kind of see from my hot cam, the the thing right there, the wind’s coming directly from this direction from the side. So if i pull this up, go a little forward just to get that um launch mat in view and i’m gon na push the drone up at least like 50 feet, man it’s starting to rain. It looks like it’ll be a quick one, though okay little rain test on the mavic 2 mavic mini 2.. So, as you can see, how high are we we’re 22 feet and literally it’s it’s blowing like 30 right now? That was a crazy gust. I mean if i step into the camera here, you can honestly see my jacket just flailing in this wind, as well as the flag hear those motors ramping up we’ll try to go, maybe 50 feet so sport mode 30 to 40 mile per hour, gusts i’m, going To quickly go up to 100, with camera down quickly, go up to 100 feet, see how it does real, quick it’s got to be blasting the heck out of it right now, 100 feet, camera down sport mode, working, fine, pick, camera up to level still fine i’m Going to pull it down hard and let’s see if it moves around watch that camera on the drone.
The video on the drone have my phone up and everything letting off right now. Dji is great with these bottom sensors because it slowed down around 10 feet on its own. Even though it’s pulling the stick down so really great stuff here um, as you can see, we got a little bit farther back, so the wind is going to blow it off a few feet. No big deal it’s still locking in really awesome that flag’s still just blowing crazy, probably about 25 right now, 20 at the moment down here, let me go back into normal mode. So as long as your camera’s forward, it seems like it’s going to be okay in normal mode, but i want to try that again. Let’S go forward a bit, so we have a little bit of a buffer and watch when i turn this camera down in normal mode. I just want to try that one more time all the way down on the camera. That was really weird. I don’t know if that was a glitch last time that happened or what yeah. That was really strange nope. I got full stick forward right now and it can barely fight it. So apparently it lessens the power when your gimbal’s down look at that full stick forward and the wind is blowing it that way: okay, letting off wind’s still blowing it with camera down. So again i repeated that, but it’s really good to know guys switch the heck into sport mode if your drone is not going anywhere or drifting away.
Okay, because look at this right in the sport – and that is just flying fast, so that that’s, probably because of the tilt angle of the camera they’re trying not to max out the camera in in uh normal mode when you’re angled down it’s. Trying to give you a more of a cinematic and so it’s limiting the tilt of the drone. You know what i mean. So if the wind’s going to blow it it’s, just not going to tilt to mess up your downward shot stay tuned because we’re gon na do some tracking and see how it does in the wind. I wan na go up we’re 63 percent power. Remember this thing can fly for almost 30 minutes, which is gosh dang, amazing, so we’re going to tilt down here and we’re going to do like a circular orbit and get these guys in the skate park. So let’s try it so remember for this i’m going to stop recording on the mini for a second uh i’m going to take it out of sport i’m going to go in normal, so remember risky, but it seems like as long as the camera is not all The way down, normal’s, fine i’m, going to stop, recording and then i’m going to go into the quick shots. So i’m, going into the little camera icon there i’m going to go into quick shot and remember: some of my friends were telling me you have to adjust uh, you can go with 4k in the quick shot.
So you see how it’s in 4k there. So you shouldn’t have any problems with uh quickshot, so i want to select my quick shot and i want to do a um. Let’S do 80 feet that thing staying in the air. Yes, it is, and i want to do kind of a circle. Strong wind warning we’re getting that up at the top. I don’t know if it was doing that earlier, you guys could let me know and quick shot circle start tap or draw a box, so we just want to really get we’re getting some really bad strong warning. We just want to really get the boy. I hope it stays there want to get this skate park in view getting strong wind warnings, man, i can barely hear myself talking, it’s, so windy and let’s just start it. So we get our countdown and there he goes so it’s gon na orbit this skate park and, as you can see, it’s having trouble going to the right it’s going really slow, now it’s picking up some speed going faster. If this thing starts to fly away, i’m gon na have to switch into sport, so bear with me guys we’re just seeing i mean this is a little risky, it’s sunday nobody’s in school right over there um. We want to just really see if this thing keep an eye on the video remember. This is 4k in the quick shots, it does do 4k and the quick shots just have to make sure it’s on in the settings by default.
When i did my initial review, it was weird it was like off on 1080. I don’t know why they do that. But i guess that’s, you know your own choice. Usually, everybody wants 4k now that’s testing the quality so it’s, keeping that skatepark centered that’s awesome. Even in this crazy wind. The drone is bucking bronco around and look how stable that is that’s dji for you. They are really good at doing this. Look at there. It is, i just heard it and it’s going to complete its revolution and stop and it’s even going to stop recording so no problem for the mini 2 in this much wind. You know i remember doing that with the mini one, when it would get to a certain point. It would really blow it hard and start pushing it in a certain direction, but it’s doing good in normal mode in the same crazy, 30 to 40 mile per hour. Wind up there, if we click over on the right, we can try something else. Why don’t we try a helix that same thing and we’ll do a little bit higher we’ll do 100 feet and then we just go start draw another box um. So for the helix yeah, i guess it’s going to do a start point here. We’Ll do a left a left side helix this time again drying a box in the middle of the skate park. Wait till it adjusts and then just hit start that’s.
All you got to do, even if you don’t know how to fly guys, just steer the drone to what you want to view and do these quick shots and there it goes it’s going to start off slow circling to the left this time. So you can get these really cool point of interest shots and the helix. What it should do is it should go out even higher. So i really want to check this out check out the height, see how it’s going above 100 feet now and if that thing starts to just really get pushed away. I can kind of see like a slow wobble in the picture from it trying to fight that wind, not bad at all, but it is affecting it slightly. Oh man look at that. It stopped there because it’s trying to fight it. What are you doing? Um it can’t yeah, so there we go normal mode, it’s stuck it’s, holding its position, but it’s stuck unless that’s. Oh you see that there we go. We got high wind super high winds. You see the camera like tweaked a little and now it’s still trying to go to the left it got through it. It got past the peak point of that wind man that’s a great shot, though so it looks like it threw the camera off just slightly, but i mean gosh it’s got to be 40 miles per hour up there guys. My jacket is just going crazy, there’s the flag i’m surprised it’s still in the ground.
This thing should be circling them right back around now, getting close to my right side, and so it went up to 140 it’s going even higher holy smokes and we’re. Getting those strong wind warning constantly and remember this is normal mode, so it went to 150 feet just about and it’s way over there it’s way, it’s like pulled itself out right when it did that helix, so it’s, basically a point of interest pulling itself out now. It’S trying to fight its way back to get to where it was when it started so excellent, doing really good. So anyway, it’s fighting for its life i’m gon na switch into cinema just real quick. This is probably gon na make it fly backwards. Maybe i’ll come down just a tad, so watch this switching the cine on the controller, all the way to the left let’s see if it starts moving back. If it does, i’ll switch back switching into cine wow it’s still holding its position, let’s see how we can fly it around. Okay, so it’s still working there. Remember cinema. Just really. Uh slows everything down camera the drone. This is full back full stick back, it’s still able to like really fight it. That’S awesome so let’s see if we do the same thing with the city mode and put the camera down. There goes our lower battery, so you saw the eight up we’re at 20 percent now and uh. Let me pull the camera down and i’d.
Imagine in cinema, it’s gon na be even worse. The wind pushing you down all the way with the camera down than normal mode, see what happens. I got my beep warning us that we’re at low battery remember guys that’s coming out of the controller. A lot of people say no it’s coming out of your phone. No it’s not there’s a speaker right here, a vent and it’s coming out of the controller. Okay guys and you don’t, you can’t, stop it. If i press power, it just thinks you want to turn off the controller right now. Cinema is actually holding let’s. Try to fly it around and see if that’s still the case. The wind just died down to about 15 to 20. that maybe that’s. Why right now, of course, so yeah we’re getting a little bit of a little spot in the wind? I just want to keep circling it. A little bit see how it does don’t run into our face and remember you got to be careful guys when you’re doing this stuff in the wind you don’t want it to like be right in front of you. You got to be ready to move around you don’t want to launch it with your hand with the wind blowing towards you. You want to launch like either sideways or with the wind. Your back otherwise it’ll blow right into your face. Cinema is not really having a problem just because the wind is only about 15 to 20 right now, so maybe a little bit weird in the normal mode, i’m going to pick the camera back up still holding strong.
Oh of course, when i pick it back up. Look we get crazy, wind, okay, pulling it back down. I love how this the controller controller’s louder than the drone. I love how this drone is quite quiet. Okay, let’s! Try this again full stick forward right into the wind, oh yeah, so it’s. I got my stick forward and it’s blowing. It back see that well, that’s got to be about 20, so i’m going to switch into sport and look at that. It just allows it to tilt and gives those motors more power awesome guys so, Music, yeah we’re getting low controller is yelling at me boy. They really got it going at 10, huh, so i’m gon na land it um. How about we just do a return to home real quick, try to fly farther away, let’s see how close whoa look. What happened to our video? I think it’s going to try to go up to 100 feet and come back if it still has enough power. Our video just went all white Music, so i always do this at the wrong moment, but it might not have enough power. Oh yeah it’s getting blown away. Okay, i’m coming down. I got full stick back and this bugger is having a hard time. Oh, oh right into the power lines. No, we just missed them. Let’S try to get back man. Did you see how i had to bring it way low and i’m just hugging the ground? Look at this i’m reversing man – oh geez! It can’t even get over this hump.
The wind is just too i’m even in sport mode, but it limits the power there. We go so guys. Look at that. Let me try to turn it. It almost it’s almost like it goes into normal mode. When you run out of that much power jeez, we got one second of flight i’m, barely pushing. I can barely go forward. Okay, good to know man. I thought we’re gon na lose that one in the street. I can still push up, though so it’s still allowing me to do this close by i’m gon na go ahead and land it before we totally destroy this battery, but look at that. It killed the video, oh and maybe i went into my manual mode that’s. Why? Jeez, sorry about that, maybe that’s what happened i accidentally hit manual mode or just had a glitch. It went into manual mode that was super weird, but man we gosh. I almost had a heart attack. Sorry about that. On that end, there man that was so awesome anyway, guys that’s how the mini 2 is doing, probably about 20 right now, but that’s literally between 15 and it’s got to be 40 miles per hour, gusts and that’s. How this thing does it does better than the mini one, especially when you’re trying these um, orbits and stuff? The drone will do it now, it’s blasting, again holy smokes thinking about the mini one or the mini two just go for the mini two.
If you got the extra like 50 to 100, i got the fly more combo where you get three batteries and you get that multi charger so get that again. I’Ll have the links in the description to everything i review. Remember. I don’t give my dji stuff for free or demo, so i am spending my whole own coin on these. So you know every little bit helps if you guys um are contributing to whatever buying them through my links and stuff. It does help my channel a lot and i’ll have the other. You know, i’ll have the other mini videos pop up there, so you can check out the other stuff, but man amazing. I should probably turn this thing off: i’m burning power, battery power and it’s killing. It so i’m gon na turn it off one of my range tests. I did with the mini one, even or actually the mini two with the mini one battery. If you remember, i lost it in like this farmland, and i had to go, get it what’s, so cool about this is even if the battery gets like below the lowest lowest lowest it’s already going to slowly land it’s not going to let you go anywhere, so It will never drop out of the sky and then it just once it lands it shuts off. So, even if you don’t turn it off, it will not destroy the battery, because the drone just automatically shuts off when it knows it’s safety landed and the battery’s so low.
So you can’t really damage your battery it’s just amazing. They did a really good job. With these, anyway guys, i hope you liked that test. That was super fun for me, so stay tuned for the next one, and i will see you guys later thanks for watching Music, everything is out of place. Feeling, like my world, is upside down. I just want to find my way got. Ta get a breath before i drown.
