what's up guys today we're at the airfield with a self-proclaimed beast of a drone I'm all about you I'm ready for a good drone everyone I'm Nate my Maddy Emily's taking a nap and Popeyes battening down the hatches I know some of you guys are missing him if you really want to see the little guy and get all caught up go check out some of our inside little mod insulation videos we did he's in there where the RC sailors welcome to our RC family he's been in some of our vlogs too I posted two logs in the last week that's all yeah that's awesome I'm into I wanted to give that a little shout-out in this video if you guys want to see Amelia like 9 months ago go check that out well today we're up at the airfield with basically I think this is an mjx knockoff and I think I've actually put on order the real version of this drone the mjx version but that doesn't matter this drone looks pretty great I like the transmitter the trains better size is nice it all feels good and we have brushless motors folding props folding arms it's basically like a Mavic knockoff I mean really if we're gonna get right down to it that's what this drone is copying we have a nice 2,800 milliamp 2 cell lipo battery that charges via USB cable and that's good for most people extreme hobbyists maybe not so much so a little tip here I mean I struggled with this for about 10 minutes feeling like idiots this comes with a little plastic stopper on the end don't know why I have no idea why you need to take that off of there and then the battery will plug in with with that on there you might break your drone I was look at the battery and I was like what is this yeah now normally I will just put this in the air and then show you guys everything that comes in the box if we like the drone but this comes with its own little case and I want to show you guys that case because it holds extra batteries and everything also this has a modular camera system we have a ability to tilt the camera up and down here in flight and we also have a camera on the bottom of that to make this a visual position hold camera drone as well as GPS so with this wind I expected to hold very stable and I'm very excited to fly this as I said we need a good drone for the channels let's do this well I'm actually really excited about this the drone itself yes but the flight is gonna be pretty fun because here go Auto takeoff or them no no no no I'm just manually taking off because one of our club members recently lost an airplane down in Death Valley that means we need your eyes we need your eyes to help us out here I just want to explain the drone for a second I'm totally hands-free I'd say we're about a six to seven mile an hour constant wind with 10 to 12 mile an hour gusts and it's holding really really really well so I'm very happy with that and let's go ahead and test the tilt control it's supposed to be this top right yeah there we go it's looking good the beeping can be annoying but at least it's an indication that it's working so when you have a button this is traditionally the way it works hey I'm very happy with how stable it is I'm very happy so we're off to a really good start one of our buddies lost an airplane down in Death Valley and right now another club member WJ is actually out there looking for it maybe we can get a shot of his drone looking for the plane so yes I believe I saw it this camera quality is actually not too bad you guys CW Jays drone flying down there it's the SJ RC something or the other it had a little gold feet no that's the drone that had the crazy shiny metallic box if you remember that but I can see this I don't know what I'm talking I don't have the brain capacity to remember all this but I'm gonna go help look for the plane we know it's in Death Valley we need your help too and we're so close to WJ right now he might be getting confused which drone is his I don't want to mess with him so I'll go over here just a little bit hey you know the camera quality of this actually looks good on our live feed it's turned great what I'm disappointed in is that there was no micro SD card slot on the drone so I'm really curious to know what the quality is gonna turn out like knowing that it's just saving to the phone and the screen recording maybe it's possible that I'm just an absolute goober and I completely missed a microsd card slot but I looked everywhere guys if there is one this is where our channel comes in very handy the community I want you guys to let me know in the comment section below if you have this grown if you know that there is a card slot let us know where it is in the comment section because I seriously could not find it so I don't think this trend has one let's go browsing over death valley some because this is a drone that is stable and I can trust it no BJ says he sees the plane so I'm gonna go out toward his drone and see if he's right okay I am flying out toward this is fun this is fun we finally have a mission for our drone rather than testing all the flight features you might even do another video with this drone I like you so much the hate they said I found it so I want to I'm gonna go talk to w Jack here well see I've got the mic with me now so alright WJ we're doing a video and can I can you tell me where the right rear plane is I want to fly close to your drone right still right there if you guys both see it then I think that it's over yeah he was sitting right over top of okay I'm gonna aim my camera straight down and see if I can see it too it's somewhere remotely woah you would let me J your way I'll pay for the right Oh Maya you're you're the drone on the right oh yeah I'm right over I'm right over where you were I'm dropping down in Death Valley a little bit I'm just going to look around some no people saying it was over that way he's off a little bit yeah so there's some rocks yes they're trying to angle my camera a little bit this is about what WJ was guys we're just trying to look for that plane now good flight on yours WJ we found a downed airplane so that's pretty cool first job yeah WJ did I don't think so okay well maybe someone else that's watching our video now has already seen it I just can't see it on this small phone with my sunglasses on – that's awesome WJ that's awesome I I don't see it myself right now Abby phone this phone but they both had they both had it on they said they were seeing it so and probably everyone watching the video now has already seen it how's the signal signal looks great it's just like your phone it's all like micro scratches on the screen and I can't see anything right now I might be able to turn the brightness up if you come here I'll do that for you okay yeah that'll help so I'm gonna stay right there because I really want to see this plane I know everybody does – I want to test these flight features for you guys – but this is way more fun well look this is where they said it was maybe you can see I'm gonna angle the cantelopes angle it up I'm gonna angle the camera down let's not worry about the DSO are right now see if you can see it they said it was plain as day that they could yeah you just you look at the phone and do you see anything okay well I trust that they saw with their drone okay let's rotate a little bit tilt the camera down I can I can I can't tell which way I'm facing there we go I know I'm flying back toward us really meant to go this way with it and when I level off we should be looking down a little bit more okay now we're gonna now we're looking down I feel like I'm on a bad roller coaster right here let's let me take like over here I want to test a couple flight features and not just look for this plane I guess but I know I know this is part of the fun of being a club member here get to find lost planes in Death Valley which is actually ywj bought that drone just for that purpose I feel like I should be able to see this hey our flight time is pretty good I don't know what we're up to total because we've had to stop recording on both things but it's a little jittery out there I wouldn't to fly much farther than this well let's just I'm going to do a return to home because we're out there might as well see how accurate it is that's pretty far out right I mean that's yeah it's 100 meters at least so I'm gonna press return to home and just see how this does the beeping on their turn to home I don't mind it's when they beep that the cameras on I hate but this time you know just returned to home so I'm not touching the controls at all I always like to test return home see how accurate it is I'm gonna go stand about where the drone took off so you guys have a point of reference and then after it comes back I'll do maybe some circle me functions I'm sure this drone has all that good stuff it's really not a bad video quality though looks pretty good yeah okay it's loitering right above me now just getting its position it's still kind of drifting over to its home spot it's very accurate I like that this has a working visual position hold camera you know I thought because this has a modular camera system on it I really thought it would not work very well it's working surprisingly you're letting the transmitter beep into your mic what about the beeping is it near a mic hold the transmitter away from your mic okay I've gotta move the drone a little because it was gonna land right in the thick grass I'd say about three feet away from where it needed to be and when it landed automatically on its own the beeping stopped I could not hear what you were saying because the drone was a little bit loud you were holding the the transmitter beeping right into your mind oh you're welcome guys okay let's take off again so both both sticks down and out starts the motors and then I'm just gonna give it a little throttle up and we're in the air okay nice nice little hover let's get a shot of us Abby I like the some people are gonna love that this has green lights on the front and red lights on the back let's aim this camera up a little bit I have got to get the directions down I went down there we go hey it's us it's really not bad I mean I'm really happy with the flight characteristics of this and you know for the price point I don't know how much better of a camera we could ask for I like that we have the ability to aim up and down comes in handy on Death Valley searches right and yeah let's see I've got some it is well I'm gonna go for test a circle me function because a lot of GPS drones the lead tests they don't work and if this does work then that lets us know we're talking about a slightly higher level with quality for our GPS string I got to start using my phone for these things because Abby's phone is just starting to show its age her case looks horrible it's hard to see the screen okay this is a good spot I see the circle in the icon here looks like we're still recording circle I do this but I really can't see much of any thing when Abby's phone okay I selected circle and then I press go hey I think you got it maybe that's kind of a weird circling me or anything at all there there it's starting to move abit no okay okay good good it just had to get into position I might have selected a circle a point rather than me it's doing a fine job though it's a nice slow movement and I like that because this camera this drone doesn't have a smooth flight gimbal so the nice slow movements are good but we can also increase that speed to okay let's stop that with the stop button on the bottom hopes that says emergency stop I hope it doesn't just fall out of the sky okay just touch the circle button again let's see if we can do a follow me it's probably this okay let's see if it's following me they're the other circle function here oh that was just the direction the options that we're up here on the screen that looks like a direction to me so I can go the other way if I want to it's flying out to a spot and then it's gonna do a circle I'm not seeing a follow-me function on here I cancelled the circle I'd like to do this let's try the transmitter well it's following me now I think so yes that's what we're doing yes okay good it does work I just had to get the right little icon you know all these drones use slightly different icons and you have to kind of first time you're using it you have to figure out what the icon really means the one that looked like it was following me was more of an active track and it said it couldn't do that with the visual position hold on unsure why but then the one with a little transmitter shows hey it's following me it's following the transmitter so that's what I wanted to test you know this is performing really well now it's got a really good flight time I'm really happy with this so far okay here's the true test we're gonna run oh here we go here we go when we fall will we felt much of a run it rang earlier in size but it's following me let's see if we can do the sharp move here probably not yeah it's gonna lose me for a second I'd say it's got me it's got me for the most part noise you know I smile when I do that I'm hoping you fall it's wet out such a good white you know I'm really happy with this flight time the following function works really well but I'm gonna stop that we have waypoints too but I'm more interested honestly and looking for that airplane just a little bit more so let's go let's go see if I can see it I know I can trust this strum this is actually a good drone I'm really happy with its performance you know the distinguishing factor really is gonna be video quality what you guys are seeing right now if you think it's up to par for what you want to pay then then buy it because the flight characteristics of this drone are really outstanding okay I need to go down further away and then rotate back so we can see up the hill a little bit this is the power WJ was with his drone let's rotate around now I know our video signals a little bit choppier out here but gonna angle the camera some and I think it's just the way the shadows are on here I just personally can't that he does happy he's getting his bear and I'll build up and stuff he's a first-time camera drone flier yeah I just don't see it on your small phone Abby well it's a big it's a big phone but well I feel like it's small when I'm looking for a little plane in Death Valley it's just the screen oh I know somebody has already seen it I know one of you guys watching has already seen it probably time stamp – that's me tilting the camera sorry it's so loud what was that is that it I see something here I got it towards the center of the screen I'm coming down some it might just be a slightly different color of a tree I can't see yeah yeah see that that's what I was trying to get to and I think it's just a different color brighter colored tree let me Jays back in the air and he's gonna go look for it so I'm gonna follow his drone and see if we can no no no or I'll owe him two drones or at least a a drone plus I'll be out my day oh we're uh we're straight returning to home so I have no control over mine now the battery's low enough but this is good you know we like to see what its gonna do when the battery gets low is it gonna behave well coming back home or not you're out like a 16 minute flight time this is amazing and you know what you can buy extra batteries for this right out of the gate actually you got the pack with three total batteries now I only charge one for this flight today but I have three total batteries so if you guys really really really really really want to see more of this let me know in the comments below I I can charge another battery and bring it out here no problem would you rather see another new drone Lord rather see this drone again because finally after weeks we finally have a decent gps drone this makes me happy and it's a it's a fair price too so all in all I'm very happy with this right now I'm just waiting on it to do an auto land totally hands-free because it forced its way home maybe I just maybe I will throw me your phone did turn off it's done well this whole flight yeah it's okay it says something saved it camera roll hopefully that's the flight footage of the drone so hopefully we at least have something I'm gonna throttle down okay I'm gonna go and throttle down let this puppy come down because I don't know how long it was gonna stay up there but it got it back to the whole point so I'm gonna bring it down and just a nice smooth landing and I'll show you guys everything else that comes in the box [Applause] really what a great little drone well as promised we're gonna take a closer look at to see the things that I like we show you more at the end of the video it's very rare that I like something enough to show you so this feels like I have done this in a long time but here's a closer look at the drone look at that bright orange streak there on the top that is not a light that is paint and I like that on there because if you were to lose this drone and some grass or something some tall grass that would stand out I assume that's why that's there that's actually really nice so we have brushless motors of course which is awesome as I said it's a GPS drone folding arms please fold up just like a maverick the back ones first it looks great it folds up to a really nice size here's our camera system on the front and as I'm showing you guys this drone I want you all to be looking for a micro SD card slot with me because I could not find one I don't know I told they there's one on here I really I'm gonna feel so bad if there is one this is a modular camera system and there's the visual position hold camera facing down so we just pushed that out and there's our camera again no microsd card slot on there so that's pretty cool I don't realize suppose if you just wanted a different quality of camera or they were selling the version without the visual position hold that probably saves money for them because they can just plug this into their different drones I'm guessing here's our flight battery this is what gave us so much troubles we have a to sell 2,800 milliamp lipo battery and it came with this little plastic plug on here I'll show you with one of these batteries because I got three total batteries I really don't know why this is on here but that pops off and then the battery can plug in but not with that so keep that in mind this little plastic piece I don't I don't know why though I don't know why that is there it does come with a really nice transmitter and the cool thing about this is it folds down the joysticks just come right off you put those in a baggie and then everything fits in this really nice case guys you know when I get a drone and I like and it has a nice case it just gives it way more value to me then you get this all folded up it all fits down in this I think it's an optional case here pop that guy in there all your extras fit in here you've got pouches up here for batteries and charge cables that all closes has foam to protect it in there and then it zips closed I mean that is such a great little setup I love a nice case I love a nice box that's awesome and then a good drone comes with a good case I'm all about that so overall I really like this drone a lot like that I have extra batteries the option for extra batteries you guys have that set up too and it comes in at a pretty good price I think the three battery setup was around $200 if you opt out a fewer batteries of course it's gonna be cheaper so be sure to check that I will have a linked in the description box below did you guys see the plane I'm sure by now people are freaking out about it like either I didn't see the plane that me Jerry probably just saw a tree that was down or something oh boy everybody's on the plane and I missed it and I'm gonna see it when we're editing this and of learning it so I'm excited to watch that guys thanks so much for watching we'll see you you
