If you’ve watched my channel for any time, you’ll know that i’m quite directing comments. I don’t, if i don’t like something i’ll say i don’t like it. If i like something i’m, quite enthusiastic about it, this is not gon na. Be that easy for me to make this video. I don’t know whether i like it or don’t like it. I can’t tell you what i can tell you is when i go flying it’s, not the first thing that i think i’m gon na go fly this i’ll. Normally pick up a five inch or one of the new four inch long ranges, i tend to fly them far more than apply this, and this is the reason. So i do not believe that is that this is a good quadcopter for flying as an acura machine or even as a long range cruiser because of the long range cruiser. I can fly one of the other things like the flywheel or the diatone get longer flight times with a lizzy and my own battery and still get 4k footage when i attach a small 4k or a gopro to it, so there’s a bit to find difficult, it’s Fun to fly when you fly in sport mode and you’re just flying it like you play a dji, mavic it’s, nice, it’s, quick, it’s, responsive it’s crisp makes a lovely noise when he flies over your head really. Is nice and it’s easy to fly the bat big time on it is shocking it’s, nowhere near up to what it was listed and if you fly in sports mode, you’re not gon na get much more than eight or nine minutes out of it.
So it’s limited in that respect and, of course the image quality is not going to be what you get from the mavic 2 or something like that or the mavic air too you’re not going to get that quality out of this quad. But it has a lot of things, other things that of course much better than that it’s got goggles, so it flies fpv. You get that fully immersive experience. The picture quality coming back through the goggles is phenomenal far better than anything else on the market, much better than sharkbite. Better than anything you can get going through a pair of goggles really is nice and that’s. The big advantage and flying fpv is a totally different animal than flying a mavic. I told this wasn’t going to be easy for me to come to a decision on this. Would i buy it again? No, i probably wouldn’t buy it again. If it was to me, come back round again and not bother. I probably just said now leave this one alone: i’m, not saying for one minute: this is the bad quad it isn’t and if you look, if you like, the one you’ve got and that’s fantastic, i am not for one minute saying: you’ve made a bad buy. This is a personal, my opinion, certain things i do think that are completely worth the money. This you’ve seen the videos i saw the video i thought, it’d be good for and i’ve flown it once with it, not for me boring and there’s other things i like.
I do like the controller, so i love the controller i’m going to go back to flying my other mavic uh. Sorry, i don’t have it am i over the dji quads, all the the other ones, i’ve got to play on the fpv one system. Let’S call it with the other controller. I take a little bit of getting used to that. Hence why i’m now starting to migrate most of my other dji quads over to the tango 2 and which is why i like this so much. I very much love the tango 2 and that’s what i’ve been playing with predominantly now um. I got used to it for flying a load of analogs. Now, if that just swap over my dj, i tackle two um that as well so i’m, putting either crossfire or um tracker tracer on it, so that’s what i’m doing so i hence i like this controller. I don’t think this is going to the tango, but i do like it. I, like the form factor. I like the way it feels in my hand, some people walk like that and i’ve come from the old school of playing the old type controllers, but because of the tango, i very much got used to this style controller. So, for me this is a winner, obviously, which is the goggles. This is the same as the mark. What the v1s! The only difference is that these run on 2.4 and 5.8 gigahertz, which is a good and bad thing bad, because these aren’t really compatible with the whole system.
It’S not easy just to bind up just to put this onto another quad, so you’ve got to mess around and take it out certain modes and put it into mods, which is a pain in the ass, which is why i still kept my v1 goggles and won’t. Get rid of them, so i still have both goggles. If i use my v1 goggles for the v1 system, let’s call it again so that’s what i use with them. Obviously, moving forward when the new units come out i’d. Imagine ddia unit they’re going to make a mechanics or someone’s going to make a unit that’s compatible with this, because if they don’t this is crazy, because this at the minute only uses. If i do, this, you’d have to think that moving forward that’s the way it’s going to go, so this system is compatible with another. What, if you like another performance, quad that you can fly for lacquer so, like i said before, i do not believe this is acronis for some certain reasons. It’S too heavy the weight distribution is not great on it and it does don’t. Get me wrong. I’M. Not saying you can’t fly acro with it, you can’t fly across smoothly, in my opinion, not to get the same level that you can get flying a either home built or one of the bind and fly units. The camera on this is good, but there’s. Bed of about – and i think to be fair with the camera.
When i first reviewed this, i said it didn’t need a three axis gimbal. I i i was wrong. It needs this reactor’s gimbal the footage you get out of it with the single axis gimbal isn’t good enough. In my opinion, if it had a three axis gimbal – and i don’t really understand why it didn’t now – maybe because of the aerodynamics of doing other things and the fact that this thing’s going to be upside down and quite a high velocity that maybe that would have Problem with this camera unit, if it had been a three axis, i don’t know, or maybe they’re just waiting for the next one, so they can make the next one three axis, obviously because it’s dji, so there will be a follow up. Um i don’t. I can’t tell you: durability, i’ve, never, crashed it. Uh i’ve never even been really close to crashing it. To be fair, it seems quite it’s, very, very easy to fly. I’Ve got in trouble with it a couple of times and i just smack the pause button. Now i haven’t put my stick. I left my stick in the center position because i fly this more for getting footage with uh rather than wanting to fly acro, because i have the um luxury of having another other quads. Obviously, if i didn’t, i would probably make i would definitely make this stick, so i fly another one by the way, if you’re wondering what i’m doing with that stick, i would make that stick a normal stick and i would much use quite an aqua because flying It in acro now i can.
I it’s easy enough for me to do because i mean flying a while, but it’s quite strange, the way they did that there shouldn’t be a catch or switch or some kind of thing. On the back that releases. This is possible to do because i’ve seen some cheap toy ones. That did it and you could just flick over and take this out of this mode or this side. Whichever side you throttled on and do that they didn’t do that they made it. So you had to just screw it in the back of here again it’s easy enough to do but it’s, not something you can just flick a switch and swap round. So i leave mine like that, but if you haven’t done i’ll suggest if you are flying this thing, accurate by all means put the throttle on a normal stick, take out the center so like i said it is not going to be easy for me to make An opinion i i find it difficult i’m going to leave you with a little bit of footage. I think i’ve already had this up before, but i’ll leave you a couple of minutes footage seeing what the camera looks like when it’s flying in sport mode act quite flat out so the entire flight. I did. It was like when i fly this thing. Sports mode of light flat out, i don’t, tend to ease off the throttle, it’s virtually full on all the time and that’s.
Why i get low flight times. I know people are going to say they can get 12 and 13 minutes flight time, but that’s puttering around and to be fair if i’m going to pop around with this thing and take shots and i’m not going to use it i’m going to use a long Range um under 250 gram, quad i’m going to use and that can do acro so i’m going to apply something else: i’m, not going to use this i’m going to use something like one of the flywheels or the hex blower, or something like that that i can Fly in my opinion, smoother and get a lot better flight time, because the weight is obviously lower and i’m flying underneath my arms so, like i said, it’s, not a video that i’m i’m, not sorry about that where’s. The camera malfunction, which is why you’ve got split in the video here i don’t, know what the hell happened there um but yeah. It moved so anyway back to what i was saying so yeah it’s difficult for me to make this video and difficult for me to make an opinion and i’m not going to say to anybody. Go out and don’t go out and buy it or go out and buy it i’m saying if you haven’t bought one already think about what you want to do with it. If you want to fly and all you’re wanting to do is get really nice camera footage.
Do not buy this by the mavic air to well if it’s called now, where 2s is it by that because it’s cheaper than buying this, if you want to fly acro and that’s, all you want to do. I don’t recommend this either, but if you want to play akron, you don’t want to do all the messing around you have to do with beater flight and all the best of it. Yet that go for this it’s, quite an in between. If you like me and you fly acro and you’ve got a dji drone, and you think you might be about this. I definitely would definitely not go for it stay away from me, because you’ve got already got what it does. What you’ve got in two different quads? This gives you one package and i’m not saying for one minute: it’s, not immersive, because it is a really nice feeling flying with these on the whole thing’s great but it’s expensive. Even though i did a video breaking it down, it’s, not that expensive, because separately it’s not that expensive, but as a package it’s expensive, and i think you can get better for your money by making your own buying a set of goggles buying. Unfortunately, you can’t buy this controller. You’D have to buy something else. If you want to build your own quads or you want to build them, you want to buy the bind and fly stuff that you can buy off the shelf i.
e this. So this is a flywheel explorer. I don’t know if you’ve already, if i’ve already put the video up for this, but i have obviously this and then i’ve also got the normal four motor version both of these come in at under 250 pound and the both on the dji system. So you will have the experience going back to your goggles and they do fly on these goggles, but they don’t apply on this controller. So you, you need to have a different controller. Both of these two at the minute are both playing on. Actually, this one’s still bound to my dji system. The explorer that i’ve just showed yeah is flying on tbs, which is what the aerial is there. So i’m saying welcome to dji for making the product, because they’ve made something and they’ve got more people into fpv, which is fantastic, because people are going to buy this fly fpv and if they fly in this well they’re going to be in for a world of Fun because it gets so much better from here thanks ever so much for watching you’ll have a fantastic day.
