    Could you compare the Alta vs the DJI matrice 600

  2. Patricio Gomez on January 7, 2022 at 3:22 am

    I skip your intros because i’m jealous

  3. TJ on January 7, 2022 at 3:25 am

    R5 IBIS wobbles?

  4. Fred MHz on January 7, 2022 at 3:26 am

    dude turn off all the sensors, and look out for trees…. easy, have a guy looking out for its path, like yourself. xD

  5. Ray Stone on January 7, 2022 at 3:27 am

    Wow yes thanks just watching how you guys deals with these issues and keep your heads together and wow you guys are hellova operators wow!!

  6. Derek Fester on January 7, 2022 at 3:28 am

    anyone else like the fpv video the best

  7. TheFox on January 7, 2022 at 3:30 am

    Can this first drone you showed perform auto rotation?
    If blades can move like in Helicopter it should be able to right?

  8. F.d T.f on January 7, 2022 at 3:31 am

    where’d ya get that far left drone….there in the intro picture…lolololol…hey its got a camera and its flying

  9. Tom Vrevc on January 7, 2022 at 3:31 am

    What brand is the FPV Trent?

  10. Lou Grant on January 7, 2022 at 3:32 am

    Tks for the information.

  11. Mark Levi on January 7, 2022 at 3:33 am

    Thx for sharing your thoughts on some gear! I’ve been a drone & RC pilot for about 12 years. It would be nice to know the FPV specs (if possible)…any recommendations?

  12. SWITCHFliP on January 7, 2022 at 3:36 am

    yo Trent whats that frame for the fpv quad? looks cool kinda want to try it

  13. mcva on January 7, 2022 at 3:37 am

    Can you fix the focusing issue when recording? Very informative but not very relaxing to watch it. Keep up the great work!

  14. Troy White on January 7, 2022 at 3:38 am

    "Man door" is my new favorite phrase, LOL

  15. Roman McClaine on January 7, 2022 at 3:39 am

    Trent could probably made a non-trivial side-business from teaching drone cinematography. Does he have courses anywhere?

  16. Alvin on January 7, 2022 at 3:40 am

    DJI inspire 2 looks so good! I have only seen it once at my hometown. Some photographer trying to capture the city landscape

  17. LGNEWS on January 7, 2022 at 3:43 am

    I weight 40 pounds.

  18. manoj mohan on January 7, 2022 at 3:44 am

    Love it. I wish you had rambled more

  19. Krane on January 7, 2022 at 3:45 am

    You camera operator is making me sea sick. I’m not sure if he’s tired, drunk, or attempting to be trendy.

  20. creamysbrianna on January 7, 2022 at 3:49 am

    A cool Video idea for the channel is to try to get together with Kelsey from 74gear on youtube and discuss the differences and similarities between the planes each of you flies.

  21. Ryan Harbert on January 7, 2022 at 3:49 am

    As someone who’s flown drones for work, primarily real estate Autel drones are really good. None of that dji nanny firmware nonsense. And there customer service is awesome.

  22. Ray Stone on January 7, 2022 at 3:50 am

    What about the Autel l 6000k and 8000 k a day I’ve got both of them I’ve had a really good luck we can turn off all other safety stuff you can do 264and 265 Rall you can turn the Ludacris you can turn off all the safety Geo fencing on and off in 45 mile an hour winds it handled perfectly I mean it’s amazing how good-looking he was a thing he doesn’t give me all the crap that the DGA does you can turn off all that stuffI’ve had really good luck with it have you ever tried theAUTEL??try 2021AUTEI 2 6K 8K AND FLEUR if you have tell me you haven’t would you try it and tell me if you like it because I think I’m having good luck with it I’d really like your opinion

  23. Nevile Ruas on January 7, 2022 at 3:52 am

    Let’s just remember that Insta360 has a feature to stabilize the horizon on FPV Drones. It´s called "Flowstate" or "FPV mode" , not sure now. Here´s a video from Tommy

  24. Tom Lepp on January 7, 2022 at 3:55 am

    Do you use any Cinewhoops? Just curios what you think about Andy Shens stuff?

  25. Brent Lewis on January 7, 2022 at 3:57 am

    Not sure if you’ve been told or seen this, but there’s suppose to be a way around the obsticale avoidance and alt detection for DJI. It’s not super technical, literally just put a piece of tape over the sensor before start up. That way when it starts up, theres not data that was fed to it so it just free flies. Personally haven’t done it, but have seen several people have success if it is something you’re still dealing with as far as the DJI drones.

  26. Joe Caraco on January 7, 2022 at 3:58 am

    Trent, you did not ramble at all. I would have liked to know the approximate cost of the drones that you spoke of.
    Your videos are always entertaining and informative. Keep up the good work.

  27. aerozg on January 7, 2022 at 3:59 am

    Thanks for the breakdown, i was curious what the industry grade cinema drones were, as opposed to the consumer grade DJI stuff.

    You will probably get your hands on the new Sony Airpeak drone once its released, i would love to hear your thoughts on that one.

    Have a great day!

  28. Schindlersfist on January 7, 2022 at 3:59 am

    I am also a drone pilot (And PPL) and my biggest complaint about the dji systems is the same. You end up focusing on fighting the drone feel more than focusing on the shot.

  29. Tiffany n Belgrove Josiah on January 7, 2022 at 4:00 am

    What Type of FPV drone do you have?

  30. Aleksandr Nestrato on January 7, 2022 at 4:00 am

    Wow, wait! Where’s your octocopter monster?

  31. MurFam on January 7, 2022 at 4:00 am

    Wasn’t even interested in this video but here I am until the end still watching. I found it very intriguing with details you shared. Love your videos!

  32. BradiKal61 on January 7, 2022 at 4:01 am

    i found this video because DJI came out with the DJI FPV, and i realized that an FPV drone is limited to certain types of camera shots. Great video, and I bet you will be doing a video on that new drone and where you think it fits in to film and commercial production.

  33. Madius on January 7, 2022 at 4:02 am

    What’s the name of the fpv frame?

  34. Zechariah Stanley on January 7, 2022 at 4:04 am

    Hey, hello. does anyone know what fpv drone that is

  35. Eisenschweinchen on January 7, 2022 at 4:04 am

    Great doku!

  36. Robert Lovitt on January 7, 2022 at 4:04 am

    Enjoy the cold and snow.

  37. R. Tom Swezey on January 7, 2022 at 4:05 am

    Was with you all the way. Great video with awesome content !!!! Its nice to hear a real person talk about the products vs marketing pitches..

  38. Curley Home Inspections on January 7, 2022 at 4:05 am

    So, a few years ago, I invested into the 3DR Solo for home inspection. Worked fine until I could no longer buy a battery. There are ways to build a replacement but I also heard that can be dangerous. So, I’m stuck with a drone I can’t use…

  39. Running Deer on January 7, 2022 at 4:07 am

    Thank you, Trent, for the information and comparison.

  40. Tim Horst on January 7, 2022 at 4:10 am

    Ok, Trent, I’ve seen that camo shirt in enough videos to want my own… What brand is it? Where can I buy one?

  41. Hay_Clay on January 7, 2022 at 4:13 am

    Great video, always appreciate the knowledge!

  42. Andrew McGregor on January 7, 2022 at 4:18 am

    God bless Trent.

  43. Michael Young on January 7, 2022 at 4:18 am

    Love these videos!

  44. Eisenschweinchen on January 7, 2022 at 4:19 am
