So i’ve got something to show you today and it is not directly linked with the usual channel content, but it is gay. So i present to you oosh my new camera drone. Now i know there’s some of you guys who watch the channel. You actually use a drone as part of your camera kit for getting the shots in your videos. So i thought you guys might appreciate this now. As you can see, it’s still brand new i’ve just picked it up it’s in its cellophane wrapper um. So my plans today i’m going to do a quick unboxing with you guys, show you what’s in the box and when i’ve updated everything and got everything in order. We’Ll do a first test flight in another video, so let’s crack on am going to try my damn dish to keep everything in the center of the camera. But you know, as these things go, it’s um. It doesn’t often happen that way, but i have got a little bit of tape on table, so i can just try and keep stuff centralized right. So it comes in a very well presented: um, cardboard box, white, cowboy box, nice illustration of the kit inside i have gone with the fly more kit which allows you two more batteries, a carry case and a couple other bits and bobs, and everything comes packaged in This um – that is actually quite a fantastic little case, though very nicely done. Dji now this isn’t, my first drone i’ve, actually had two before this.
I have had the phantom dji phantom and i have also had the dji spark both were purchased with the intention of using them within my videos, but i don’t think any of them actually work so so the bag it comes in is actually well i’m. Getting ahead of ourselves all right, so the bag it comes in is actually very well constructed. It feels absolutely fantastic, actually all nicely padded all right. Where do we go first? Should we have a look at the accessories? All right so looks like we have um a booklet of documents, so let’s get this boring stuff out of the way with first. So here we have a an assortment of books and documents. This will be for the two way charging hub. So the good thing with this is: you can charge all of your batteries in one hub, um, not sure this is not sure and we have a quick start guide which we’ll have a look at in a bit all pretty boring stuff. If we delve a little bit deeper into the case and this box looks promising, so let’s have a look. So first of all, we have a charging plug, looks very similar to something you get in a um android mobile phone. This will be the charging hub. Let’S have a look see, oh, and we also have two of the batteries pre installed in there. So these batteries are actually um lithium, polymer batteries very lightweight, and they give you a runtime in this craft of 31 minutes, which is the most i’ve had out with any of these drones.
So far, i’ll tell you guys for the size of this one. You see it, you will be absolutely gobsmacked. When i tell you some of the specs on this um, we have a couple of lightning cables. This one is usbc to usbc that will be used on my phone box is now empty. We have a usb c to a normal usb and a micro usb to usbc for your older phones. This is what i’ve been looking forward to now. With the first drone, i had the dji phantom, the um. It was quite bulkier for the the transmitter. It was a big white thing, with a big metal bar over the back and a big extendable aerial from what i remember, but this this is just in that just awesome. I can’t explain it in words. This is all rubberized on the back, so it’s a nice nice comfortable, fit in your hands and the good thing about these controllers here the stored actually in the bottom of the controller itself, so we can easily pull these out and screw these in. It does feel very, very premium, so they just easily screw in there and then the switch in the middle gives you options for cinema mode, normal mode or sport mode, and with this particular craft in sport mode, you can attain a speed of 31 miles per hour, Which again is um awesome for this size, craft and it’s, the fastest one i’ve had so far? So we have the power on button, the return to home and pause flight button.
We have a function button at the top um i’m, not sure what this is. We’Ll have to look at that. We have a function wheel on the back, that is to pan and tilt the um. The gimbal on the front which, on this craft, is a three axis gimbal. This again is. I can’t show you because i’m obviously recording on the phone so, but this here is the actual um transmitter antennae and this actually runs off ocusync 2. I believe the other two i’ve had and the signal between the transmitter and the craft was wi fi. So the signal dropped out pretty quickly after about a mile i’d, even say about five or six hundred meters, but this you’re gon na get a solid picture transmitted to your phone for the full six mile range that this craft is um able to do so. Six mile radius with this craft and i’ll show you the size of this in a minute, so your phone slips nicely in there. You have the lightning cable or your chosen cable, sits in the back plug that into your phone and this acts as your antenna. So we have a camera button on the back for taking your pictures or starting the recording function, and that is pretty much it as far as i can see yeah well, that is an awesome awesome. Little transmitter right. This is it guys. Are you ready for this wow? That is absolutely ridiculous guys.
This feels like a bleeding toy. There is absolutely no weight to this at all. That is awesome, absolutely awesome right. So we have a little carrying strap, which i believe keeps all the legs in place. It’S molded nicely to the body, and that will just keep all your props in place and your legs in place, while you’re transporting so what dji i’ve actually done with this is quite remarkable. They have managed to get the weight below 250 grams, which, at the time of release that was an important feature, because any aircraft that weighed 250 grams and over you would have needed a pilot’s license or a drone pilot license and an id license. Operator’S id um. Unfortunately, um a new law is coming in the uk, where, even if this craft being what it is 249 grams, you will still need an operating license for this craft. Um reason being is a new legislation is if the drone, even though it is only 249 grams, any drone with the camera falls into that category. So unfortunately, this does have a 4k camera at 30fps, a 3 axis gimbal, so i will have to apply for a which one is. I need it’s, not the pilot’s license it’s the operator’s id, which is nine pound for one year. I don’t mind doing that at all isn’t. She a little beaut it’s, just awesome right, so we have some stickers on here. If you’re looking out the controller’s actually bigger than the craft, you wouldn’t think that this was capable of six mile range.
It has a couple of intelligent functions with this as well guys, so you’ve got obviously return home, which has been part of the dji lineup for a good few years now um. So as long as you fly, it correctly you’re not going to lose this it’s always going to return home as long as you update your um, your current home location. So let’s have a look at this, so these legs will fold out and these bottom legs actually flick out. I’Ll just leave it there for a second, because that is just absolutely awesome. I think i’ve got birds in my chimney right, so we have a battery cover sticker on the back that i cannot get. Oh there we go so the back opens up like an actual loading bay dock like on a cargo plane. I do apologize if this is all over the camera, guys i’m trying my best so battery’s housed in the back door, clicks down it’s, just an awesome, little thing so on the bottom of the drum. We have a couple of um sensors here, and this is just to tell it um. You can actually hold your hand out, and this will land in your hand from flight um we’ve got a uh. That is one thing i haven’t got and one thing that hasn’t probably been supplied. Oh, we have another pocket in the back what’s in this, oh, more goodies, more goodies right, so we got an extra set of props, which is andy.
Oh we’ve got six props right. Cool we’ve got extra thumb screws for the controller, so if you ever lose them, you’ve got them spare and we have a little phillips screwdriver. So no sd card um, not a problem. I’Ve, probably got them knocking about somewhere but and there we have guys. The three axis gimbal so on the spark um on the dji spark, which was about the same size as this, but that weighed 300 grams um. You had a two axis gimbal, so the camera would pull up and pan up and down, but there was no light. Lateral side to side is it your might be your on this one um that is going to be stabilized, no matter where the craft goes or so. If it’s shook anyway in the wind that camera is going to be focused on whatever you’re looking at awesome, 4k 30fps, we have a couple of vents here. I think this one is actually going to replace. Is it the mavic mini and the mavic mini 2? I’M? Not i’m not sure don’t take my word for it, but it has definitely replaced the dji spark that is now discontinued um. The drone retails for i think i paid 700 pounds for the fly market, but that’s going to give me a good hour and a half flight time, and it gives me all the extras i’m going to need and i cannot wait to get out and uh give This a go guys so, as you can see there on the side, we have the ultralight, 240 gram, it’s, probably not going to be featured in every video, but it’s just going to be nice to have to get them nice.
You know cinematic panorama panoramic shots um, but i’ve also got i’ll. Show you another piece of dji gear, which is the osmo gimbal. This is the dji osmo um and i’m just having to be careful now, because when i bought the the other djis, the uh, the drones and stuff like that, you just end up carrying more camera gear than you do your gear for the day so um. I think that’s, what put me off the last time, but this i mean that weighs quite a bit on its own and i used to carry this around in its case, which is a big polystyrene thing, but it does give you some nice shots and again. This is a three axis gimbal, so you can walk around with that and you, your shots, are rock steady. This was absolutely nothing and this could go in my pocket, so i’m chuffed with that all right guys. So that was just a very quick look at my new camera drone um again i’ll get some practicing with this, and just it should all come back pretty quick and i’m going to set it up, get it all updated with the firmwares and stuff, and then i Will be out and i’ll bring you back for another um, a first flight video which i’m quite looking forward to so there we go guys i’ll, try and get it all in shop. For you to be honest, i think this is going to be more for fun than actually using it for the channel all right guys.
So i hope you enjoyed that quick. Look at my new draw as always stay safe, stay, crafty, take care and i’ll see you for the next one.
