V-Coptr Falcon Drone | Snap Poll (3 min 10 sec)

The V-Coptr Falcon two-rotor drone by Zero Zero Robotics is probably one of the most polarizing yet highly anticipated drone offerings that I have seen. Some folks proclaimed, "scam" when the drone was first announced. This may in part be due to the delays Zero Zero Robotics had in developing and releasing the Hover 2. I also think the declaration of 50-minutes of flight time raised suspicions. With only two motors to power, could it actually be possible?

DJI Osmo Pocket PolarPro Tripod Mount | Wide FOV Easy Fix (10 min 5 sec)

The PolarPro Tripod Mount enables you to easily get a wide field of view when the DJI Osmo Pocket is facing you. Attach it to a selfie stick and voila a quick and simple fix. You can obviously mount it to a tripod, but I found this method the most useful.

Parrot Bebop 2 vs DJI Spark | Best Budget GPS Drones (23 min 30 sec)

This is a head to head comparison of the Parrot Bebop 2 and the DJI Spark. After extended use and experience with both drones I think both are great. I tried to be thorough, so we're comparing camera quality, hover stability, build quality, software, automated features, return to home (RTH) accuracy, range and a few other categories. I had an expectation about the result of this comparison and I was not surprised at all.

DJI Mavic 2 Pro Budget ND Filters | SKYREAT ND Filter Review (14 min 0 sec)

The DJI Mavic 2 Pro produces amazing images all by itself, but good ND filters allow you to get more out of the camera especially in the manual modes. I show you how to install the Skyreat filters and I also included plenty of comparison footage. At about half the price of some of the more popular brands, you get 4 filters in this set: an ND32 and polarizer and an ND64 with polarizer.

The only thing I don't like about these filters is that the gimbal cover does not fit over them. So you have to remove the filters everytime you're done flying. Not a huge deal, but it can be a little inconvenient if you like to leave your filters on when moving from location to location or just in general.

DJI Mavic 2 Pro | How to Edit DLOG-M H.265 Video Smoothly with Premiere Pro (12 min 5 sec)

DJI Mavic 2 Pro | How to Edit DLOG-M H.265 Video Smoothly with Premiere Pro. This is a Premiere Pro tutorial showing how to edit video from the DJI Mavic 2 Pro shot in the DLOG-M color profile. In order to film in this profile you have to switch to H.265, but a lot of folks will be surprised that they can't even play the video on their PC, much less edit.

I show you how to use proxies or proxy files in order to edit DLOG-M H.265 video in Premiere Pro. HEVC H.265 is CPU/GPU intensive. I hope this helps.
