  1. Wow! This is exactly all the info I needed. Thanks Billy for the breakdown. Am still saving up to buy the Dji Mavic but there is no store here in Nigeria to purchase the Mavic. Please, I need your email address for some more info.
    Thanks and Keep up the good work.

  2. I like you, your are informative, The fan boyism is a bit of a turn of from your channel tho.
    if anyone is confused. He obviously prefers apple. Preference isn't the annoying part, it's apple, therefore, better product then everything else is.

  3. Keep us updated on your Part107.
    I don't know if I would ever have time to do this (I am a father of two kids) but it's really cool to pass that test and actually get the commercial license.

  4. THANKS BILLY I JUST GOT MY P3S AND EVERYTHING YOU SAID HAS COME TRUE. NEED'S LOTS OF THOUGHT BEFORE YOU JUMP. SINCE 9/11 THE WHOLE COUNTRY HAS JUST BECOME FREAKED OUT. AND IT SEEM'S FLYING ANYTHING HAS BECOME A MAJOR ISSUE. FAA THIS AND FAA THAT. HELL I'M AFRAID TO FOLD A PAPER AIRPLANE AND TOSS IT. ANYWAY I HAVE RESEARCHED THE RULES AND REG'S AS BEST AS I CAN AND HAVE REGISTERD MY UAS AND CAN ONLY WAIT FOR THE DAY THEY GROUND US ALL.. THANK'S FOR YOUR GREAT VID'S

  5. 4:35 I understand that the screen on the P4P+ is an Android device. Why DJI can't better support other Android devices eludes me. Especially since Android devices are generally less expensive.
    5:50 "I believe it costs like $5 bucks"…. sounds like you are not yet registered : whistle:

  6. Also important to note that you will need a fairly new PC with connectivity (also for the initial setup and then software updates for your drone) , then probably a video / photo editor and some skill working with the software to manipulate / edit your photos and videos…

  7. You don't have your part 107 but videos in which you have drone footage are monetized. Isn't illegal? Just wondering if YouTube counts as making money or only stuff like real estate and other stuff does.

  8. Have you heard of Twanda PA? That's where I live. I am only 13 but we should meet up sometime and fly a drone. I have big dreams of being a film maker and I have been saving up for equipment. I do not yet have a drone but I am very responsible, organized, and educated about technology. Your videos are awesome and thank you for giving me this useful information.

  9. Generally love your content, Billy, but I didn't like your comment, "this did suck, but there are ways to get around it….call tower etc". I know you fly safe but the drone community needs to work with other airspace flyers, not work around them, particularly with those that actually have humans on board. Flying in restricted airspace shouldn't 'suck', moving into a safe zone is just the normal thing to do, to be safe and, in the case of schools, residential etc, just considerate. The more the drone community clashes with the public/aviation, the more legislation will be created….ala Canada. I would encourage you, as a role model, to emphasise safe flying. Otherwise a great vid, as usual 🙂

  10. Sappy video had me in tears , we love you too man, I really feel like we all just bonded. I'm to teary eyed to see my keyboard so I say good video and look forward to tomorrow big DJI release! I Love you man!

  11. Got a Mavic my brother crashed it 2 days later. I take it to get repaired. While I wait for it to get repaired I researched more about drones and flying them. I already had little knowledge about them. but I learned more.

  12. Great video as usual, I subscribed to your channel not too long ago and you seem like a nice guy and have great content. I also trying to get more followers and post more videos of my drone. I wish I can get to where you at right now. Thank you again for everything your doing for drone pilots, have a nice day
