DJI Air Mavic 2 & mavic 2 – Affordable AIR DROP Kits & WEIGHT Carrying CAPACITY lift Test
we're going to test some of these air drops today, i've been kind of curious i've seen some on amazon. The prices are getting pretty cheap like under 40., and i just wanted to see if i could purchase them and see how good they were. So you guys know if you're looking for maybe some type of remote airdrop to go fishing and whatnot or whatever you wanted to do, drop little parachute guys out of the air these kind of work off of one of the arm lights. You either turn that light off or on in the app the dji, app and that's how these things turn off ron. They have a little light sensor anyway, we're going to unbox these little guys put them on see how they work get outside and do some testing, and what we'll also do is we'll test the weight these things can handle. Dans le même temps,, i haven't really done any videos on weight testing. If you were wondering on how much these things can hold. If you're trying to take your fishing bait out, there i'll just go ahead and put some weight on there and keep adding weight until these things. Can'T hold up anymore, so we'll also do that. So stay tuned and let's test these things out. So the first one we're gon na do is the mavic air, so we'll open. This thing up just show you what's all in the box. These are directly from amazon.
I bought this myself and i just really wanted to see how they perform there's, the instructions, Jambe, extender kit and here's the electronics. You see that little sensor in there and that's going to detect, if you have that light on or off and this plugs into the brain module micro, usb cable for charging the electronic device – and this is it here – it's kind of like a clamp. So you see that it's just a clamp that goes over the drone and just clamps shut, and then it looks like it's surrounding the power button. So you can still turn the drone off and on if you have it clamped and that's how that works. So you click the light on or off in the settings. One is open. One is closed anyway. This is the little brains of the unit there's an on off switch in here and that's, where you're gon na plug in the micro usb to charge it this other little pack, basically that's kind of neat it's kind of giving you like a two for one. So uh you've got for 40 bucks around there you're getting these clamp on leg extenders for the front and the rear. Little key ring type of thing here and a little circular velcro, so we're going to be utilizing all these things. When we do our drop test, it's, not super professional, i mean here we have just a printed page with the instructions on how to install this okay according to how it shows it it's just going just like this so kind of just straight up.
I guess we just have to make sure it's clamping over the power button and then click it shut, so that's the first step get that clamped on that was fairly easy and that thing clamps on really tight, so that's gon na be able to hold some weight. That'S for sure the second step is we plug right in here on the top. Et voilà, and this is going to be running down to the bottom, just like this and grab your velcro and we're just putting it tightly right around that guy. Vous pouvez voir, as i wrap this around it looks like i can get it kind of underneath that drop mechanism on the left, trying to overlap this velcro as tight as possible, looks like you want to get it kind of in the groove of where the body Starts to flare out so it's in that little nook and just make sure it's uh really tightly strapped in see that there it seems to me some light can kind of get in there. So maybe you want to block that off with some tape or something because uh you don't want this thing to be opening if you turn and the sunlight kind of shines in there, so maybe a little bit of a flop here's where we can see why they Give us the leg extenders, because it's just sitting on that low part of the light sensor, so we want to put these leg extenders on here.
d'accord, so the longer ones are going to be. It looks like the rear leg extenders, so you see how we pop that open, getting it on the rear flipping it over and it just kind of clicks in that's kind of interesting that's kind of loose. So i got ta like slide it up a little bit higher. I can't really clip it until it's down low, so probably click it on and then yeah just you just got ta clip it on and slide it up until it's, nice and tight and they don't seem to be slipping down on their own. So we want to put the front ones on so that's how they kind of open up and that's all they're doing see that so they have little padded feet on the bottom, just like the rear ones, so that's kind of neat how they fold up just for Space saving and on the front here looks like you can: do it doesn't matter which leg is which you just basically slide it right on that's, with everything mounted up and from the sensor, we have about an inch to uh the table now so that's. Why they? They kind of include these little little arms here and yeah that's not coming off unless you pull them off just hold the bottom of the arm. Here i wouldn't really hold the motor just hold the very bottom and slide those up till they're, nice and tight there.
We go yeah, that seems to be nice and sturdy. Everything is touching the ground, all the legs cool, so let's get this thing fired up and see if it works. Turning it on you're, going to see that red light blink a couple times, you have this function up here by default. This turns off and on uh the light on the bottom and here's how everything works so remember we got ta hit it twice. Light comes on and that opens see that and that's sturdy let's see if i pull on it. Yeah that's gon na that's, not gon na break with a couple pounds of weight, so that's gon na be awesome, hitting the function button twice again once to do auto and then once to turn it on and then that thing's gon na drop so far so good Let'S put on the mavic pro two one see if it's as easy as this one and then we'll go out and fly them all right, gars, let's get the other version going for the mavic 2 pro. Shall we so same thing: let's just go ahead and open. It up and see what this thing's all about should be from the same company, so main device here, a little instruction manual here: usb micro charging, cable leg, extenders and stuff like that in there just the back in there anyway. Tout d'abord, there is the actual mechanism so same type of deal. We have the round hole on top for the power cable.
We have this latch system module with the charging port and the on off switch again. If i turn it on it's going to blink and then when it's ready, it'll stay solid, same exact setup, just a little bit larger to incorporate the um the mavic 2.. Now this will work with the mavic 2 pro and the mavic 2 zoom, because remember essentially, those are the same exact drone just with different cameras. Let'S see what we got a whole bag of goodies in here. Oh, there was one more thing in that white bag and uh that looks like that's. The sensor module see it same deal as the other one, four little black rubber bands, which is a little bit different than the other one little keyring deal, oh actually there's. One more black rubber band, so that's five. So these are the leg extenders for the mavic 2.. You can see same type of deal. They will clip on and extend the height for the front and the back so that the whole module does not hit the ground. When it's set up this one has the 3m sticky side you peel off, and then these don't have any sticky on them. They'Re just double sided velcro! Oh en fait, there were two two clips like this. So we'll see what these guys do. So it looks like it's a little bit less in depth on how to put this all this stuff on. So i guess i'm gon na find that out with you and we'll go through all this stuff front.
Leg center is, bien sûr, super easy. It'S just can go on one way you just take the shape of it and push it on these guys, actually kind of snug it in nice and tight, because the rubber kind of pushes onto the side of this plastic – and i don't – want to push it on Too tight, but you don't want those to fall off so push those on nice and solid work our way over to the rear. So the way these are going on guys quite simple: you can see how they have this little lip, which is a little bit different than the mavic air. 2 ones. Put it right over the arm and slide it on up, and you can see how it's got this little thing there, that kind of wraps and curves right around the edge of the arm elbow and that way you know that this thing is on solid, just push It down clip it and that's exactly where it has to be no guessing whatsoever, it's, not sliding back and forth like the mavic air 2. One was so it's perfectly solid in there and it clips on nice and tight. What a great some great tolerances here, it's just too bad! They forgot to put those little rubber feet on the bottoms all right guys and for the main module same thing as we just want to have it if it's facing us uh. The bottom is facing straight at us: we want to have the main module that we plug into on the right hand, côté.
On dirait ça.. One goes right above that laser sensor right in between the laser sensor and that obstacle sensor, so we get it under the belly and all we're doing is the same thing pushing this thing over now. This thing seems a lot tighter than the mavic air 2 and it looks like it's centering around the power button, a little better yeah that's, really tight wow. I can't even move this thing, so it's almost like they're repurposing this. This is probably a kit to hold like a flashlight or something see how you can just push them in let's. Try that real, quick there we go push and snap them in, and you can see how you can twist this all the way, probably put a little mini flashlight in there and you can rotate it around. But of course you could use it for something else. If you want or not use them at all, but they do come with this kit and you can also just pull them out nice and easy. You see how it's the same design as the uh, the mavic air ii, but this looks like it's a little bit more made for the arm here, see how that just goes right over the light. There'S, not really any light infiltration there when it is on tight. You can see how that sensor in there is just right over that front, arm light and tucked away and hugged in there really nicely doesn't really matter at this point.
You just want to kind of wrap this thing around plug it into the actual module, nice and tight there, and this is where we're just gon na kind of put the rubber bands over probably either do this with the extenders on or not looks like we're just Taking these rubber bands here and putting them over a couple of times, the wire just to hold it on to the arm, probably would have been easier. If i would put these on without the legs on, mais euh, pas trop mal, they do stretch quite a bit and they kind of maintain their elasticity. So nice little low pro rubber bands, there see how that works, and then this front portion here this is where we really want to make sure these rubber bands are holding it on nice and tight. So maybe one wrap is a little bit too loose that one's on the bottom. This one is on the top see that we want our twist right on the end of the cable just so all this is flat. So the least amount of resistance for the wind of the propellers. I think i'm, actually gon na put one more of these guys right in the middle here, so that wire is just really hugging the arm. So there's no question: you know if this wire is gon na come up and hit the propellers there we go that looks pretty good let's. Give it a try here, i'm, just gon na kind of double wrap this one, and for this see how easily those feet come off for this, those will just come right off and if i double wrap it, this will get a lot tighter on there and really Now it's really hug in there, so you may want to do that.
Just double wrap these two on the end here twist it bring it down and under and over again and yeah. There we go now. Our tension is really tight. That thing is not going to be sliding anywhere now boom and there we go setup complete, remember the feet: they were missing the rubber, so they threw this in the box, so you can just cut it if you wanted to and stick the rubber in the feet. If you wanted to do that as far as these two velcro strips, though really not entirely sure, i guess you could use it. toutefois, you wanted, you could substitute the rubber band for these velcro strips around the arms. Si vous le vouliez, il semble, like the rubber bands, are the lowest profile work, Le meilleur, but at least you have options on how you want to attach these things in the box. d'accord, now that this thing's all set up let's turn it on and see if it works the same as the mavic air 2.. So once we're in the settings we want to go into the controller on the left and right here kind of in the middle of the screen. You see button customization, so those are the buttons on the back of the controller, see these guys here, c1 and c2. On the very back right now, it's center autofocus, so you could do either one of these. If you wanted to turn on off head leds, so i'm gon na click, i'm gon na actually assign my right hand trigger that's.
That would be c2 to this one. So either button you want on the left or right hand, side with your finger and so that's done there you go so front lights off. The drop is closed, front lights on just clicking the button boom, that's it and, bien sûr, clicking it again, closing it so you're only going to have to use that one time right – and this thing is on solid, so i'm, just pulling a couple pounds of pressure And it seems like it's going to work really well what's cool about this, like i was saying in the beginning, guys is that's gon na work. As long as you have range between your craft and your controller, these dji crafts, especially the um, the ocusync technology man. They can go for miles, so you have that capability to use this drop mechanism for miles, unlike those other cheaper ones that have their own radio signal button. Très bien les gars. There you have it that's how to mount these things up. They seem to be working pretty good. We got the one on the mavic 2 back there and the one on the mavic air 2 right here anyway. Let'S get outside test. These guys um see how much weight they can carry and also how this thing works meet. You out there at the park just a fantastic day. I'Ve just got a little breeze coming from this direction. To my left, um at about to say, variable.
Cinq. Tout d'abord, i've got this little bucket of weights and we're going anywhere from 1 once. Up to eight ounce, so we're, just gon na put these on this little mechanism. I made right here. All this is is some steel leader i had laying around for fishing just made a loop at the top and then gave it some length. Then i just have this little hook: loop thing where i'm just going to be adding weight slipping them over. If i want to, i can just kind of clip this closed just like that twist it over. If the weight starts to push this a little too far. Alors, just a real, simple weight hanging rig here i made just kind of do it yourself. I just wanted to show you how much these things weigh guys and it should be 28 grams per ounce, so we're zeroed out i'm, just gon na put it on here and, bien sûr, this is without the wire and stuff. This is for the mavic 2 un. So we've got about 47 grammes. You know without this wire that we put on to the arm and the rubber bands and stuff and of course, the extended landing gear you're going to need to put on so we're looking at about maybe two ounces. If it's 28 grams per ounce, roughly about two ounces for these kits from there we're adding that weight on to the craft and then we're going to be adding this weight and as a kind of a final bonus, remember this little spawn guy, i did a little Drop test a long time ago with one of those aftermarket air drops, i think it was on the phantom 3.
I believe it was but um he's back little spawn is back. I'Ve got this little parachute from one of those airdrops i tested and we're going to drop them with the parachute from pretty high we're, going to see how that all unravels and see if he's successful at dropping and deploying his parachute. I did end up putting this little black foam in here. I just basically cut a little piece of foam glued it into that because it looked like. I was testing at my house and if the sun was low shining into this little hole, they left it looked like it would trigger the drop mechanism, so kind of unfortunate fortunate would have been cool if they could have at least put that piece and glued it. In there for you, you know what i mean, because some sunlight will get in there or like if you're doing night fishing and your flashlight shines at it. That will trigger it. A little impressing function see how that pin just went in we're ready to start adding things on. So here we go with the weights, so let's start off with an eight ounce, so on the dji fly app it's saying it thinks it can fly for 24. 25 minutes right now, let's see how that adjusts. While we uh, you know sort of bog, this thing down so we're. Putting an 8 ounce weight on lead weight, letting it go gently see the eight there.
That means it's an eight ounce. You can hear the propellers really ramp up and look at that. It dropped our flight time to almost half. Nous avons 15 minutes left of flight and it's trying to calculate how much power it's drawing so no errors yet with eight ounce let's take another eight ounce same exact weight and let's. Put it on remember this is the mavic air 2 seeing how much it can hold another 8 once. I have no errors on the screen yet and i'm. Seeing the time is, dropping pretty radically it's it's only 10 minutes now so guys, that's a pound, that's 16 Onces, so that's holding over a pound because of the two ounce mechanism right, so that's like a pound and two ounces of weight says they can only fly For nine minutes like this, with one pound attached, no errors on motors up at the screen. Let'S try something else: let's try a four ounce added to this, so adding a four ounce there we go so i have. If you can see that in my screen it says max power load reached, fly with caution, so i'm gon na take that four ounce off again Music. There you go and and that little error did disappear. So i would say: do not carry anything more than a pound with this i'm gon na clip this on and let's try to fly around with this pound of weight. d'accord, so that little motor like caution is coming off and on just because there is some wind Music, so let's see if we can fly around.
So all you need to do is get your weight out right, let's, see if it drops or anything i'm just kind of going steady around the park. So this is kind of how you'd be flying like if you're putting your bait out you'd probably definitely be higher. Let'S, stop you see how it compensates that's, pretty awesome compensates really well not getting that motor overload anymore on the screen. So that's awesome let's see if we can actually pick up altitude with this much weight. That'S full throttle up yeah man and it's still going up pretty good let's do full throttle down and i'm gon na let off right now, oh wow! Oh, did you see that so letting off you got to be careful. Let'S put these things back on it just kind of broke, my clip, but it the drone didn't crash let's fix that little arm there. The drone did not crash so that's good. To know i mean if you're in the water. Maybe it would be a different story. So let's get this back on here: one weight, two weights again: that's a pound of weight and it's still doing fantastic. Let me move the camera down here, so you guys can kind of see this see that so the camera is pitched all the way down. So i'll have that up on the screen, so you can like look at your bait. Tu sais, while you're going out, i could still go up and down so, if you're going to come down i'd advise just really slowly come down, because if you're full throttle and you let off there – it's not enough time for it to like ramp.
The motors up right so it's still saying we have like six minutes to fly so you could. You could successfully like launch a couple of uh slide, baits out there, big baits and again. This is all you can have the remote control. As long as you can control the drone with the dji occu sync right and it seems to be putting up with about five mile per hour – vent, no problem more wind, i couldn't say for sure but i'd say maybe around 10 it'd still be able to do This estimating so one pound of weight hanging off the bottom awesome see how i went down slowly and i let off and it was able to compensate for that. It seems laterally, it's, really it's, really um doing a good job at taking care of that all right. So one pound of weight – let's just drop it right here. So you really, Tu sais, know how this thing operates and if it can drop a pound of weight using this stainless steel leader on the arm there so we're just going to drop it. I think you have to push this function button twice so pushing it once goes into auto light mode. Then you have to push it again and it's gon na turn the light off. So three two one pushing the button boom. You see how those weights dropped and the drone just went up like maybe a half a foot to compensate, got a lot quieter motors aren't having to work as hard at all.
Et maintenant, if i look on the screen, my flight time is increasing like doubled. It was down to like five minutes with that pound of weight on it now it's up to like over 10. well that's great. This thing is working pretty darn good for this setup, let's go ahead and land it and try the mavic air too say: we're fishing and there's really not much wind. I just want to land right back on my little table, yeah it's, still very stable, i'm. Just holding down and kind of adjusting the lateral movement as it came down and just perfect man, so let's boot up the mavic 2 pro this bad boy. This is a little bit older than the mavic air ii, but i was assumed this could carry possibly a little bit more we're going to test it out. It is a bigger bird heavier bird, but also has larger, propellers larger motors to give it more power. Get it a little bit away from the table here, there's that amazing beeping sound again let's get our eight ounce plates here. We'Ll start with those there we go so there's. Eight ounces and let's see how long it thinks we can fly it's saying 14 minutes with that eight eight ounces, on with it off it was around 20. a little bit above 20. there's, eight ounces, here's one pound. You can hear those motors just really get up there so from adding one pound.
My flight time is really dropping. Let me go ahead and tilt this camera down, so you can see the weight on there. So say you have your fishing stuff on there right. You can see where you want to drop it so that dropped down to 10 minutes when i put those on so same thing about a pound of weight is gon na half your flight time. So remember that i'm, not getting any errors on the screen. Let'S. Try remember like the mavic air, two let's try a four ounce, so there's, four more ounces dropping our flight time even more, but not not a whole lot that's like nine minutes, not getting any errors yet so let's do a uh six ounce, so that'll be an Extra a pound and 10 Onces – if it can do this so six more ounces, Music it's still going whoop whoop whoop, they can't do it. d'accord, i want it to land so i'm. Pushing up i'm gon na. Take this off Applause. La musique, attendre! Why is it? Oh it's, seeing the weights Applause, i think what it's doing is it's seeing those weights as possibly the ground so definitely turn those sensors off in the settings. Let me do that real quick i'm. Just turning off all the sensors now let's see. If i put this back on and if they'll try to do that again: d'accord, one pound and 10 Onces, Music max motor speed – oh it just wants to land, so let's take that off! So when i put when i put on that extra okay let's just drop it real, quick we're, just wanting to land drop Music, please drop! We got ta turn off our there.
On y va.. It just wants to land now i'm gon na press x here, d'accord. So what this one does, if you have too much weight guys it's gon na, be really important for you to have your video feed on and know what this thing's doing, because even if you have the sensors off and it senses it's too much for the motors It'Ll start landing until you hit that x on the screen. So if you're over the water boy don't want that to happen right, so we did a pound and 10 Onces. We had to drop that load there, which worked good. You can see that just press the right trigger doesn't seem to want to work with the recording on but um. I think that may be a setting in the camera to turn the lights off and on when you're taking pictures. So i'll have to check on that. But just keep that in mind: let's try, uh one pound, six ounces; d'accord, we tried one pound ten and it didn't work too. bien, so let's try one pound. Six. Et voilà. d'accord, so that's one pound, six ounces let's see if it does that same thing. Again there we go flipped it shut, so one pound, six ounces of weight, d'accord, can still go up. Let'S fly it around a little bit. Oh no max motor speed reached again. d'accord, i'm gon na have to take this off carefully. Take that six ounce off and stop the landing see how it did that once it reaches that max motor speed, so that was one pound six ounces.
Should we try one pound four ounces let's, try it so a little bit less weight, but let's see if it gives us that max motor speed one pound four ounces say you got one pound: four ounces of bait: oh it's, landing again: d'accord, yikes let's! Take that off carefully i'm just pushing up so it doesn't land and then i'm pressing x after i took that off. Okay we're, just gon na try a pound Music. Is it landing? Oh it's max motor speed again: d'accord, let's just try a pound so having a little bit more problems with this than the mavic air. 2. I'M. Getting this max motor speed reached up at the top here. Si tout va bien, you guys can see that just like a little yellow warning now, we're at 20 power let's just see if we can fly around Music, so you can see how the low is coming on again low warning. It just wants to land now i'm gon na try to press x okay, so you can x out of all this stuff, but the battery is 17 still holding steady and i can still push up let's see how it is coming down. It'S, probably going to be landing again, i have to hold up and push up if i come down and let off yeah so it's very similar. Oh punaise, this thing really wants to land 14 battery Music. So let's drop this weight, oh gosh. This keeps doing this dropping the weight pressing right trigger boom drone went up.
Half a foot dropped her weight. d'accord, Pardon, that was a little frustrating a little frustrating for me too, but we will go through a pros and cons guys on these two drop mechanisms with each craft really wants to land now, i'll just pull down and land it already it's only at ten percent, But that's, what kind of what dji does? Is they really stream at you when um it gets below 20. en tous cas? That was great um. We had to drop our weight, but it really let us know what to expect on these two crafts, while loading them down let's, shut everything down here and we'll. Do our final parachute drop and then we'll do a pros and cons on everything. We'Ll talk about. You know we'll kind of rehash. What happened when we did the mavic air 2, then we'll also rehash on everything that happened with the mavic 2 pro and how they both worked. Let'S drop this spawn with this parachute see if this works since we're going to change the battery right now, i might as well show you guys how easy or difficult it is to change a battery. If you need to do a quick battery, swap this mavic 2 pro seems a little bit easier than the mavic air, because the mavic air has this extra little velcro that has to hold the sensor on the bottom sensor is already attached to the arm. So all you need to do is unclip again this one's much tighter than the mavic air 2.
take out your old battery put in your new battery, clip it in pull your clip back up and just make sure you're kind of centered between these two sensors and Then all you're doing clicking it right back on and you're ready to go with your second battery a few seconds for this few more seconds for that head, leds, auto turn off. So those are the leds that the sensor uses right. So i think that's why it wasn't working when we had the camera recording so i'm going to try to turn this setting off right here in the camera main settings head leds, auto turn off i'm going to turn to off and let's see. If that fixes. Our problem of filming, while we uh drop it okay, d'accord, so i got the rubber on everything in there clicking it closed okay, so you see how that's gon na work, the rubber band and the pin um that he's holding on to are both on the same Release pin so it'll hold his parachute on there until he goes ahead and releases with the mechanism. So let's try to hand launch this since it's gon na be hard to launch it with him on the bottom i'm gon na just try to hand launch it. Let'S, do it so we're gon na? Do the auto launch holding it away from my face and remember i have all the sensors off, so you want to be careful of this sliding to unlock there.
On y va.. That was easy, so you might want to do that when you're fishing, once you put your bait on, you can do it that way too i'm going to take him out towards the wind really easy flying with this much weight. Remember i have all those sensors off, so i want him to be able to deploy so i'm going to take him pretty high, still swinging there on the bottom. I want to be careful because i got that rubber band right. How high are we? Nous sommes 133 feet high. I think that's far enough out, let's go to 150 feet so i'm, just going up a little right here. So now the wind's coming from that direction. It'S really variable guys. So this may be a disaster in where it lands but let's. Just try it maybe i'll go over this way a little bit. You see how there's nobody underneath me. So i want to be careful there's a little guy swinging down there. d'accord, ready let's, try it so i'm gon na press the right trigger, and hopefully it releases remember. I am recording the video, so at least we'll see him drop and i probably won't be able to, but i'll try to follow him with the camera. At least my hat cam will okay. Here we go three. Two one click. Oh there he goes. Oh, can you guys see him pick it up pick it up. Where is he oh he's flying right over my head? Oh sympa, he's gon na go.
Oh. I hope he doesn't go into the school area. d'accord, bon. We missed the power lines, just barely and it's landing over there in that corner of the park, so we gauged it a little under but that's that's fine. Si tout va bien, you guys could kind of see where it landed on the uh on the camera over there. C'était génial, let's bring this guy down and let's. Do our um our pros and cons that wind really took it, and luckily the power lines looked a little closer than they actually were, but they're about 20 feet that direction. So luckily it came down and perfect right here. So if you ever think you're going to kind of gauge something, especially with the wind like this kind of stuff, you know dropping parachutes and stuff like that. You really got to give yourself like a big buffer of space and it's really hard to you know kind of time it right and distance it right, but you know just a little bit of thought and how fast the wind's blowing in one direction and really like How big the parachute is, you can kind of figure out approximately how far it'll travel, but there we go spawn is unscathed. I still even have my rubber band here around his leg and um. That worked really well, i mean it's not going to really be good for, like vigorous flopping around. Probably it might have like broke off, but just that rubber band held the parachute to his back kind of a double circle.
Pin system right into the pin of the mavic, 2 and man really impressive, worked really well. d'accord. bien, like i was saying that went great, we got a lot of valuable info with that little test on both the mavic 2 pro et l’air mavic 2., going to be doing something with the mini, although there isn't really a lighting switch, they have for the Mini that i've seen yet so it might just have to be like an rf switch, but we'll we'll do something with that at least see how much weight the mini also can can carry too speaking of the weight uh. This actually did uh better remember. This could actually hold about four more ounces of weight, actually even more, but then it would go into that. What was it motor over speed warning on the motors because it was trying to keep itself up, so it was spinning the motors faster, sucking more power, and it had these errors where it would try to land. So you got to be really careful with that. Didn'T seem to do that with one pound and four ounces. d'accord, so this was the magic number for the mavic 2 pro one pound. Four ounces seem to be able to withstand that and fly it around without it trying to do that landing thing. Bien sûr, if you're running into more wind turbulence, you're pulling the line out from your pole, that's gon na also be more stretch and more weight, but i would honestly just to be safe.
Keep it limited to a pound. d'accord, 16 ounces seem to work best for this, and also surprisingly, la mavic 2 air and the mavic 2 error. Didn'T have any of those motor over speed warnings and then try to land. All it would have is maximum power warning of the motors warning pop up on the screen, but you could still be flying. I don't know for how long, but because i kind of let some weight off when we got to that point, but again one pound of weight that this thing can carry effectively. We flew it around. Both of them flew both around and we could see how responsive they were at stopping did very good laterally. You could also gain altitude even with a pound of weight on here. Dropping just be careful, you don't want to drop full blast and then, if you seem like, if you're stopping right around 10 pieds, it wants to almost hit the ground because it doesn't have enough buffer uh area to make up for that momentum. So i would say just come down a little bit slower when you're getting near the ground or, if you're over water, getting into the differences and the pro pros and cons of both mechanism. Air drops this one. It was kind of like they thought it was going to be able to use one of the front sensors so, like i was saying in the unboxing, they built the mold for this, but then realized you could only turn off the front and the bottom light.
Not the front lights, so they repurposed the sensor in the instructions for the bottom uh kind of clunky put together. They they needed to include the foam and maybe a whole other bracket for the bottom, but they didn't do that. It'S, like they just threw it in the box, the one that was for the arm, but we got it to work. Just make sure you put that little foam piece to block the sunlight or your. You know lights if you're fishing at night from going in, comme vous pouvez le voir, there's no blockage here on the bottom of the mavic 2 drop mechanism, so that's a bonus easier to clip things on. But as you could see um we could clip things on and then just like you could do it yourself better. If you had a buddy fishing with you or something clip things on while it's, not even flying and then just hand launch like this, so you could have your your bait and your line hanging this way and the line hanging over to your pole and just launch It just like that just make sure you don't get any line in your propellers and you can see how easy that was to launch same thing for the mavic air 2 launches very easily from the hand. So you could rig this up before it's even launched and then just hand launch it so very simple on both items, then again, would you buy this instead of like a swell pro, you might consider it it's a better drone, all around it's, more of an advanced Drone, so not only can you fish with it, mais vous pouvez.
You can get way better photography and cinematography and even pictures than those waterproof swell pro drones as they are now, depending on in the future. Maybe swell pro will advance to more better technology like the dji products, swell pro has a pretty old technology in their drones. The only good thing they really have going for them is. The actual drone is waterproof if you were to dunk one of these in the water it's pretty much done, especially if it's salt, water and you're ocean fishing. If you do dunk these for a short time in fresh water, i've done that in my pool, you guys may have seen my mavic original mavic dunk test in the water will survive fresh water as long as you take it out right away, and you do the Proper drying, as our last little bonus, this thing worked really great. I'M glad it worked. bien, the whole rubber band system really just really just a jerry regular system that seemed to work just fantastic. As long as that parachute is coiled up and it's, just all holding together, you can do stuff fun stuff, Comme ça, you know you could also drop both water balloons. Bien sûr, you don't want to drop anything controversial or dangerous. I like to just have fun: do fun things with them and for fishing so anyways. I really hope you enjoyed that pretty extensive review of these two drop mechanisms and also how much these two drones can carry their maximum weight and how effectively they can fly, and we also got a little indication of how long they can fly with that much weight Seemed to cut down their flight time about in half anyway, thanks for tuning, in guys again all the products i review like these two airdrops and also the drones i'm.
Reviewing them on are all in the description down below so don't forget to check that out and i'll see you in the next video thanks for watching just realize that some of you guys might want to know if these drop mechanisms can fit in the flamewar combo Bags, i usually just like to carry my drones. If i do get the fly more combo, i like to use the minimalistic approach and just carry a very small bag, so the fly more combo bags are very small and they can barely squeeze in usually everything they come with. I usually don't bring my chargers with me when i do flights, i usually, if i do, i leave it in the car so no big deal. This is just to see if they can fit back in the cases without the charger now the mavic 2. You can actually leave the armband on the sensor and close it all up, so i have a battery on the mavic 2 pro and we're just going to put it right in where it goes in this little cubby. Here you can see how all this kind of squeezes in there and then i have the drop mechanism – is actually down in the bottom. So you put that all the way down in the bottom, and then you can just close that all up and you're ready to put your controller in and a second battery, and i guess you could put a third battery.
You could squeeze it right in here on the top right next to that or possibly even put your charger in here, so you might even be able to put your charger in so let's see if this all zips up there, we go yep don't forget on this One, you also have these sides, so definitely a charger could fit here and another battery. So actually you can fit that whole drop mechanism in the whole kit in there and let's try the mavic air 2. So i got two batteries in the side there and i have one battery already in the craft. Alors, bien sûr, this one you have to take off the whole drop mechanism because you have to unclip it from the bottom, so this is going to go in its own compartment. There we're gon na put the controller where it goes in its own compartment here and it looks like we can just kind of dump all this stuff. All the legs and the drop mechanism itself extended legs in there and there you go so might be tough to squeeze the charger and or a third battery in, but it looks like both of them can fit the drop mechanism. Air drop right in their own landmark.
