HOW TO FLY A QUADCOPTER/DRONE FOR BEGINNERS

hey guys this Carson Miller Tech here back with another video and today in this video I’m gonna be showing you everything that you need to know about becoming a drone pilot or a beginner in flying a DJI drone this applies to any DJI drones and probably applies to many other brands of drones also but in my video I’m gonna be flying a DJI phantom 3 standard so yeah let’s get into the video so the first thing that you’re obviously going to want to know how to do first is turning on the drone and the controller the way that I turn on my drone is I turn on the controller first and we’ll start beeping I set that aside powering on to turn on the drone make sure any gimbal guards or tectors are off and to power it on you press the button once and then hold it for two seconds and will power on make sure this is on a flat make sure this is on a flat and stable surface next you’re gonna want to go into your phone whatever phone you’re using I’m using a iPhone 6s currently and you’re going to want to connect to your drones Wi-Fi I’ve changed the name and password already so mine shows up differently but for you it should show up as a default at first the very first time you fly it so after that you’re gonna want to launch your DJI app and from here you’ll be able to click on this button here that says camera and that takes you into your camera view so the next thing that you’re gonna want to do is calibrate your drones compass in order to do this you’re gonna want to click on the ready to go GPS and click on tau to start the calibration you click OK and on the screen it will show you what to do but right now I’m going to show you how to calibrate your drone 360 after on your screen it’s changed you turn your drone is complete the next thing that I personally like to do is to calibrate the gimbal and to do that you click up here to the three dots and you go to where there’s a line with the camera click on that you click on gimbal auto calibration okay you don’t have to do this step but in my opinion I always do it after calibrating and compass because it just helps it’s not fully done yet some may think that it’s done but you have to give it about thirty seconds in order to complete so as you can see right now it’s calibrating and it will come up and it says gimbal calibrated the final thing before taking off with your drone for the very first time is to make sure your drone is in beginner mode this is like completely up to you if you actually want to do this but for me this really helped for the very first time that I flew my drone because to learn the controls it takes a little bit of time to learn so to turn on beginner mode and to make sure you’re in the beginner mode click on the three dots once again go up here to where the drone icon is and you want to scroll down to where it says beginner mode this is typically turned on when you first turn on the drone and fly it for the very first time so if you’re not getting long distance and you’re like what is happening the reason why is this mode right here is probably still on also if you’re wanting to get a or flight altitude you’ll want to change this right here to 500 you’ll also want to make sure you return to home altitude is that a good distance high up so then it won’t hit anything so in my case I’m not going to put it into beginner mode because I’ve already went through that but if you are a beginner you’re gonna want to make sure is in this mode to help you so now it’s time to fly your drone for the very first time one more thing before you take off make sure that your controller this switch right here needs to be up make sure it’s up not in the center because that goes to manual attitude mode so make sure you’re up and as you’ll see it will show GPS and you’re gonna want to make sure that you’ve got seven or more satellites available so now for your very first flight you can take off in two different ways you can either click up here with the takeoff icon and it will hover up at about four feet or you can pull the sticks into the center or out to the sides this is the emergency shut off and turn on the propellers like this you don’t want to do hitting them while you’re flying up in the sky because if you do that your drone will come hurtling down to the ground so now that I’ve told you all that I’m just gonna take off with this way even though I usually take off by going to the center I’m gonna take off this way so then you guys can see this yourself so you click this button and you swipe to take off as you guys can see it’s just hovering up in place right now you shouldn’t have to worry about it moving around as it should just stay in place so the default controls for the controller is the left stick controls the up and down and turning left and turning right of the drone and the right stick controls forwards backwards left and right to go up you obviously just push the stick up make sure nothing’s above you and the drone will start to take off as you can see right here on the controller on your phone this right here is your height and this is the distance from your controller so I’m at an altitude of about 150 feet right now about 160 now and if I go forward you can see that the distance from the controller goes up also so to take your very first shot as in a picture or a video you’re gonna want to make sure you’re in the mode that you want typically when you turn on the app it’s in picture mode which looks like this and if you want to shoot video click that little button right there and you’ll see video so in order to take a video for your very first time you’re going to want to click this little red button right here and it will begin recording pretty self-explanatory and you can get your drone shot in my case some cows [Applause] as you see as you can see they’re very interesting so when you want to end the recording you click the red stop button pretty self-explanatory and now you’ve taken your very first shot you can find the shot in this here that has your recordings it shows it right here or if you just open the app you can click on this right here that’s called editor which shows all of your recordings so now that I’ve showed you guys how to do that now it’s time to move on to a little bit more advanced camera technique which is using this knob right here what this knob does is it aims up your camera by pushing up and aims down your camera by pulling down you can move your camera while moving around look down at a subject or if you’re wanting a really cool cinematic look then you can go and while you’re flying forwards push up on the little knob and it aims up and that’s pretty much it in flying a DJI drone it’s really easy if you want to get into more advanced modes you can move this knob over here all the way down that brings up an option on your app to do all of these different things point of interest waypoints Follow Me mode home lock course lock and you can also from this screen get to your beginner mode that’s new but if you’d like to do that you can also do that so now it’s time to get your drone back home you can do this one of two ways you can either manually fly your drone back or you can click this button right here which is return to home to return to home you slide you won’t want to do this if you didn’t set your return to home height if you didn’t set a good return to home height then you have a risk of going and hitting things above you such as power line like right there but in my case ice at the return to home altitude really high up so we’ll come back to home and on your controller it will start beeping and your phone will show that it’s returning to home makes it super simple to land and if you’d like to cancel this you can click the X cancel it you can cancel that and then yeah then you can land it another way is if you manually brought it back home you can go and click on this auto land or you can do the going down manually do not move the six to the center that is not what you want to do because that will shut off your drone but you can go and click this auto land right here and land as you can see it’s landing it will automatically land and hover over just a little bit and land and there you go you’ve now just landed your drone so yeah guys that’s pretty much it for this video I’m sorry it was shot like it seems like it shot it pretty quickly and well truth is I kind of did because I’ve got quite a bit of homework that I need to do so I’m gonna get to doing my homework I hope you guys enjoyed this video and if you want more videos about my drone or more videos like this comment down below and make sure like this video if you liked it or dislike it if you did in losers but yeah so anyways guys that’s pretty much it for this video I hope you guys enjoyed it see you in the next video peace also if you guys were wondering this entire video was shot on an iPhone 7 plus so if the video looks horrible then that’s why or if it looks good then that’s why also so yeah guys that’s pretty much it now peace

Is This The BEST Drone for Beginners?

[Music] so I’ll tell reached out to me and asked me if I wanted to try their X star drone and of course I said yes now one of the things about this drone is that it’s ready to fly right out of the box now speaking of that box you don’t get this cheap styrofoam box you actually get a very nice box which is made out of hard plastic and it gives you a lot of additional slots so you can put in extra batteries if you want to buy more now this comes with a propellers it comes with one battery a 4k camera now this camera I like a lot because it actually detaches from the frame which is something that most drones do not have and this is useful because let’s say you end up crashing the drone you end up breaking the camera and you can easily detach this and reattach to the frame and it also has this sort of like vibration isolators which makes it really nice during flight you also get a 64 gigabyte micro SD card slot which is going to give you plenty of storage for your 4k video recording so one of the things about this controller is that you don’t necessarily need a phone or a tablet to fly this you actually have a display up here which gives you information and we’ll show you that in a second there’s also a few buttons here like for example you have to start the motors or the rotors first before you can actually fly or take off and then this one over here is if you hold the power we start the controller this actually powers on the controller and if you lose a drone for any reason or a loose connection or not really connection but if you lose sight of it you can actually push this and it’ll return back home this is something we’ve seen on a lot of drones so and this is nothing new by any means and this is just to pause the aircraft on what it’s doing there’s also other buttons up here too like for example record video control the camera and stuff like that so it’s really easy to fly all you need to do is go ahead and push on this button right here and then once we go ahead and do that it’ll give you a little beeping sound you can see it shows you the full bar of batteries there it goes and then what we’re gonna do now is actually hold to power the controller on and then all it’ll actually give us information over here as soon as we do that when I push on the start button here it’s telling me that there’s 50 gigs remaining now here’s the cool thing you can actually format that SD card from here so that’s actually something that’s really nice everything looks good is telling me that I have 100% battery life left and then there’s that image there that you can see and all I need to do first is hold this to start the motors and then the drone will start to spin its rotors and then all we need to do is push on takeoff and land so we’re gonna go ahead and do that and then the float the drone will start to rise up so the way you fly this is actually very simple similar to other drones where you have a left and right thumbstick to go up and down and left and right so the app itself is very intuitive so for example there’s a couple of vital stats up here how far away it is from our home point which is 244 feet and it also displays that on the display right here on the controller it tells us that we’re 391 feet above within the legal limit right now we’re not moving so it’s at 0 miles per hour there’s also follow me a lot of the features that you see on other drones – on the right side it’s telling me how much time I have left so right now I have about 10 minutes this is something very useful with 42% battery life left so it gives you an actual like time limit so I know that I only have 9 roughly a little over 9 minutes to come back and then there’s follow me there’s also if I push on this I can go home so if I hold this the drone is actually gonna come home as you can see it’s heading back towards me it’s letting me know that max altitude has reached over here there’s a couple of camera controls so if I want to go ahead and adjust the ISO level this can be all done manually if I want to record I could push on that and remember keep in mind I can do all of this with the controller so I don’t necessarily need the actual cell phone or tablet if I’m gonna use that and what’s cool is that most of the information that’s on the app is also available on the controller so for example I can see the battery status of the drone it lets me know how far away it is from home so right now we’re three the drones actually 360 feet away an altitude of 304 feet so it just gives me a lot of information that if I didn’t have my phone it’s very useful of course I can take pictures I can take video and let’s go ahead and roll some video samples of stuff that I’ve done [Music] so I hope you guys enjoyed this video guys have any questions let me know in the comment section down below also I’m gonna leave pricing and availability in the description follow me on social networks link down below thanks again for watching and you will catch me in the next one adios [Music]
