about my drone

Posted on

Some people have been asking about which drone I use for my aerial shots. Well, I used to have the DJI Phantom 4 (bought in China, carried through Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan), but since Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan wouldn’t allow tourists to operate drones, I ended up selling it.

It was a bit big anyway.

So in the spring of this year, I got the DJI Mavic Air:

It’s fantastic in the way that it combines the functionality of the Phantom with the size of a power bank (when folded):

There are a few problems: The battery life could be better. The model I’m using routinely fails to get the recording time right in the video files. Sometimes the gimbal starts drifting. But overall, it’s a great device.

Oh, and one more thing:

I try to drink a lot of water every day.

    是说,我们所能看见的那一个个动人身影是它拍摄到的吗?了不起的创造运用在了善良的人手中,也一定是了不起的。有了与你同行的它们,你的旅途就不会寂寞。——还有,相比两年之前,你这位行者确实瘦了许多,感觉长途跋涉的你吃的可是不多啊,除了多喝水,还要多吃一些食物,也让它们多多与你同行😊

    Hi Chris,
    DJI Mavic Air just got a competitor, tests are actually quite good (people where unhappy in the beginning when it came out, but now it seems to be better with the software updates). It is the Parrot Anafi (french company). So just for info if you want to see comparisons, they are on youtube. The anafi is slightly cheaper.
