LEARN HOW TO FLY A DRONE IN 7 MINUTES!
Dear I spit here, so maybe you’re in the market for a drone. Maybe you’ve already got one in either case good for you. I was also in the market for a drone. The guys at DJI sent me a MAV ik Pro. Thank you very much.
I’m having a lot of fun flying this thing around. I will be using this method Pro as we get into talking about how to fly a drone hashtag register. Your drone, it used to be that if your drone weighs more than point 55 grams in less than 55 pounds, you needed to register it with the FAA, but it looks like that is no longer the case.
You only need to register it if you’re flying your drone commercially. However, the website still says you have to register even as a hobbyist. Now I’m, not sure what the regulations are in other countries, you’ll.
Have to look them up wherever you live, intro drones, the more expensive drones almost fly themselves with the positioning hold self-leveling elevation hold exception such a, but if the GPS fails on these drones, most new pilots are not capable of dealing with the manual controls in handling The wind room, the cheaper toy quadcopters force you to learn how to fly manually.
I started with the sky Viper s 1700, my first flight. I crashed it three times in under nine minutes. I know it was in nine minutes because that’s. How long the battery lasted? I quickly realized just how much the wind can knock your drone around just hovering in place was a challenge, a quick note about, starting with cheaper drones.
The flying experience is not the same as with more expensive drones. I’d, say flying anything smaller than a foot would not be very useful for practice. Simulator when you’re just getting started with all this drone business.
It’s, much better to crash a computer-simulated drone than a real one. I used the sky Viper simulator until I got used to the drone. When I switch to the Maverick I also used their simulator in the DJI Go app.
I do not know what it is, but people get their drones and they’d like to go right into their backyard and fire them up without even taking a look at the manual it’s. A really good idea to familiarize yourself with the settings real time open areas.
Your first flight should be in an open area. If there’s any incident more than likely nobody’s, gonna get hurt by open area. I mean like a football field or a park with no more than like a handful of trees.
Around people and powerlines should not be in as you’ve read. The idea is to practice a lot in no risk or low risk situations until you feel more comfortable while strong winds are great for handheld gliding, they are not so great for drone flying.
I try and fly when the wind is no more than 15 miles per hour, any more than that. You’re, just gonna end up with shaky footage. You also want to minimize electronic interference. Don’t fly near radio stations or cell towers Wi-Fi hotspots.
These things can interfere with the communication between the drone and the remote wouldn’t want any fly. Aways drone safe areas. There are a ton of no drone zones, typically their airports, military bases, national parks.
You can get into a lot of trouble. If you’re flying into one of these areas, you can find places that you can legally fly in using the hover app. It’s. Faa approved super simple to use, shows you the areas that have temporary or permanent restrictions.
You can also use the before you fly app, which is the FAA zap, I believe, but it’s kind of boring. I mean hovers way better. The DJI go for app also has the restricted flight areas feature which shows you where restricted areas are.
The Maverick Pro also comes with the no-fly zones feature which pretty much prevents you from flying in restricted areas. Pre-Flight checklist, if you have any gimbal covers or clamps for your drum make sure you remove them, make sure your propellers are secure.
Give them a spin make sure your battery is in place and secure. If you have any fans or air intakes make sure there’s, no debris Zoar, anything obstructing them. Take a look at the gimbal make sure it’s straight.
If it looks cockeyed or funky, you might have a problem. Also, your lens make sure that puppy’s clean there’s, nothing worse than finding finger prints and smudges all over your footage, baked off and landing takeoff and landing can be very problematic for beginners because of the ground effect.
This is when the ground itself interrupts air flow blowing down from the propellers, resulting in a vacuum. When this happens, things can get a little hairy, so be careful. You might want to just practice taking off and landing.
First get a good feel for it, hovering hovering. Can be harder than it seems, especially when it’s a windy day. Mastering the hover allows you better control over your aircraft and also allows you to shoot better aerial videos and pictures the first three times I launched my drone.
I just practiced hovering at 3 to 5 feet in the air and then landing. I wanted to get a good feel for how sensitive the throttles are. Basic movements, keep your movements, small and smooth don’t. Do anything elaborate until you really get a handle of the controls in the sensitivity if your drone has a beginner mode use that for a while this mode, usually caps your speed and altitude, my first four flights were in beginner mode.
If you have a DGI drone, you might also have tripod mode. It slows your movements to a cinematic pace, but it’s, also really great for beginners who want to practice without all that speed. There are a few flight exercises you can do to familiarize yourself with controls.
We’re using just the right. Stick fly in a square with the drone. This is gonna. Get you really familiar with the role in the pitch liners are called you ‘ Ll have to use both sticks for this one.
If you can fly in a circle, you will have come a long ways with the controls. You should be at least 5 to 10 feet in the air, for this keep doing this until you’re comfortable flying in a circle in both directions, like a figure 8 flying in a figure 8.
Teaches you how to balance your pitch roll and throttle controls, while switching from the drones nose pointing away from you and toward you. This will definitely help you get used to accurately controlling the drone, no matter which direction it’s facing now.
There is such a thing as headless mode. Do not use it for this exercise. That would be cheating crash. It happens to the best of us in order to prevent a single crash from ruining your entire day, be prepared.
Get a few extra propellers, maybe get a few extra batteries. Many drones have obstacle avoidance built into them. You should be aware of what areas are actually covered with this, in which areas aren’t.
The Mavic probe, for instance, has obstacle avoidance for the front and the bottom of the drone, but not for the back. The sides of the top obstacle avoidance is not perfect people it can be thrown off by a few things.
So do not rely on this as your primary means of crash prevention. If you want evidence of this, there are quite a few videos out there on YouTube of people crashing their drones, relying on obstacle avoidance.
I definitely advise getting whatever care or replacement plans you can get from the manufacturer. The extra money is definitely worth it because if you do crash this bad boy, more than likely the repairs you’re.
Getting will only be at a fraction of the cause as opposed to what you would be paying. If you did not have one of these plans, rules and laws, we got rules. What else is new? They’re there for a reason, so don’t, be that guy or that gal a few notables include, do not fly over people airport’s, national parks, stadiums or anywhere, where a descending drone could cause harm.
Keep your drone within eyesight to never fly higher than 400 feet above the ground, or 120 meters return to a home position with plenty of battery power in case of emergency, wherever you are be sure to look up the regulations first, so you know what’s legal for your state or a country or wherever.
Well, thank you all so much for watching. I will leave links to the Mavic pro in the sky, Viper drones that I used in the description section. Well that’s! All that I got for you, thank you for watching.
If you enjoyed what you saw please like or subscribe, I also do one-on-one chat sessions. If that is something you are interested in, please bring your filmmaking or YouTube questions. I will leave a link in the description section we can get mo info on that.
I do believe that’s. All that I got for you deeper down. They would make a total of six stops on this traverse. Collecting samples from large rocks
