Lol nope.

But that thing is so steady you'd think it's on a tripod.

Slips easily into my pants pocket. Unbelievable.

Did you get any footage?

How does the flying ability compare to your Orange drone? IQ?
(I forgot the name...)

Didn't get any footage.

My drone hasn't arrived yet, but indications are that the Autel will fly better outdoors while the Mavic wins indoors.

Am I the only one who would be scared to fly a drone over an area I wouldn't be able to recover it from? EG over the water at the Kalalau Trail
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

No official word from DJI yet.

I feel that either you have confidence in your aircraft or you don't. Flying over land has its own dangers, possibly worse ones than crashing into water. At least in water the only loss is the craft.

What a moron. The guy breaks just about anything he owns.

I can't fathom why he has such a tremendous following.

Personally I can't stand it and can't really bear to watch him...
