Special deals i am teaming up with Adorama to give away a dji mini 3 so Make sure you stick around to this video For a little bit more details all right So if you are completely new to drones This video is really just to give you Some quick pointers and tips that you Might want to know when taking out your Dji mini 3 pro now the first you want to Look at when you take out your drone is Do i have a memory card in the very back Of it now even though the dji mini 3 pro Does have some internal storage it is Too small for you to capture a lot of Footage on there it's really only about A gig geek and a half worth of memory And if you're shooting 4k that's going To be eaten up in a second there's Nothing worse than getting your drone up In the air just to find out that you Have no memory card and the internal is Just way too small you're not really Able to capture that much footage now Before you launch your drone you want to Find a nice open area i'm here in del Mar california and luckily enough i do Have a nice flat clean bench here to Take off from now when you do put your Drone down for takeoff on a nice flat Surface you're going to want your drone The nose facing away from you you don't Want to take off with your drone facing You you don't want to take off sideways Make sure your drone is pointed away

From your body before taking off now why Do you want it pointed away well by Default the controller and the drone Will be set in controller mode two when The drone is turned towards you now the Orientation of the sticks is going to be Opposite and just to show you about Orientation right now the drone is Facing away from me it's pointed away so The right stick if i were to press that Forward it does go forward if i were to Pull it back it does come backwards now Here's the thing a lot of people will do Is that they'll accidentally take off And the drone is facing towards them Because they want to see the camera a Lot of times people just want to see the Camera however like i said if it's Facing towards you and with that right Stick if i were to go forward the drone Now is going to come forward and i want To pull back it goes away So one thing you want to make sure is That the drone is facing away from you That way the orientation on your remote Control is the same as the drone now my Next tip is talking about hand launching And hand catching however i know this Isn't a beginner move but it's something That you do want to practice if you're An area like this that has a lot of sand A lot of debris high grass a lot of Things on the ground and you don't have Something this flat to take off from you

Might need to resort to hand catching And hand launching your drone now before Everyone jumps on me in the comments i Understand this is not necessarily a Beginner move it is something though You're going to want to practice once You get familiar with your drone i do Have a full tutorial on hand launching And hand catching i'll make sure that Video is linked above as well as down Below in the video description alright So now your drone is up in the air You're getting ready to fly next thing What you're just doing is setting your Return to home altitude now what is the Return to home altitude well if you have Any issues with your remote control Disconnecting with your drone your drone Will automatically go into what they Call rth or return to home so when you First take off with your drone you're Going to want to make sure you hear that Home point has been set once your home Point is set now you know that if There's any issues and the drone had to Come back and return to home it would Come back to that last home point that Was set now luckily enough where i am Standing there's not much around me There's some trees behind me here let me See if i can get the drone pointed over There there is some trees right over Here but i'm actually on the top of a Cliff so there's really nothing around

Me that i'd have to worry about what you Want to do is set your return to home Higher than anything that's around you So if there's tall trees any lights any Buildings you're going to want to set Your return to home height higher than Those buildings or those lights or those Trees now being a new flyer you're going To want to turn on obstacle avoidance Now remember that there's only obstacle Avoidance sensors on the very front the Bottom and the rear which means if You're flying your drone sideways just Like that Just know that you risk crashing that Drone because of the fact that there is No side sensors as you can see here if i Have the drone facing towards me with Obstacle avoidance turned on And i have it in brake mode If i try to fly towards me it will not Move towards me It will just break because we are in Brake mode even if i spun it around and Tried to go backwards Same thing the drone will not come Backwards because we are in break mode Next we'll talk about is turning on your Guides and your histogram now to turn Your guides on on the top right click on Those three dots Go to camera Scroll up And you can see here we have guidelines

Now those guidelines really help you Position your drone you can actually Turn them on here so you have the Crosshairs you can turn on the grids That way if you want to position your Subject into a third and you also have That center dot really good if you're Trying to fly Through something you want to have those Crosshairs as well as the dot but as you Can see when i turn those on on my Screen you can now see all the lines on The screen and this is also good for Making sure that your horizon level is Nice and straight also you're going to Want to turn on your histogram now my Histogram is already turned on let me Show you where that one is here just Scroll back up and there's a little Toggle says histogram turn that on and Off right there and the histogram now Will show up on the bottom left of your Screen now the histogram is very Important especially when you're Shooting in manual mode however for my Next tip i recommend just leaving it in Auto before you get really comfortable With the drone before switching it over To manual to confirm that you're in auto Mode at the very bottom right it says Auto now once you go into pro mode that Means you want to manually adjust the Shutter speed the iso and for your Photographers out there the next tip i

Would suggest is to take your photos in Both jpeg and in raw now for you to set That up what you want to do is go on to The icon right above the record button Make sure you're in photo mode click on Photo now to get a single shot but also Shoot in jpeg and raw at the very bottom It says format click on that and now you Have the option to shoot jpeg only or Jpeg and raw next tip i have is to Explore different angles when you're out There flying now of course getting a Standard shot just like this the way i'm Pointed right now pretty straight Forward one the one most people get However Top down shots look really really cool So point that camera down just like this And you can get some really nice photos As well as videos so for instance here i Am right next to the shoreline but Definitely look into top down shots Looking up shots and just explore Different angles now for my final tip This is actually a perfect time because You can see here i have 30 percent Battery i normally like bringing my Drone back at 30 or at least getting Into the area where i'm shooting at About 30 percent so as you can see here I'm at 30 percent right now what all i Always like to do is bring it back Within 100 feet 200 feet or so that way you

Have the drone clearly inside if Anything were to happen if the battery Levels were to drop a little bit more You could easily see your drone and There it is guys just some basic tips That you might want to think about when Taking your drone out for the first time Those are some of the first settings i Will normally always switch when i take My drone up in the air and thanks to Adorama for sponsoring this video here's Some more details about the giveaway We're going to have coming up on july 4th now i've been able to partner up With adorama on this giveaway if you Guys are interested in winning a dji Mini 3 pro we'll be giving one of these Away to one lucky viewer on july 4th all You have to do of course is like this Video make sure you guys are subscribed To the channel and of course leave me a Comment down below and let me know in The comment section if you're a new Flyer and you've never flown a drone Before hopefully you guys were able to Get some value from this video and let Me know which of my 10 tips resonated Well with you and if you're an existing Drone pilot please share with the rest Of us give us one tip leave that down Below in the video description make sure You guys just leave me one comment down Below i'm going to be picking a random Comment winner not only from this video
