When the original DJI fpv system first Came out in 2019 I severely Underestimated how popular it was going To be with normal fpv Pilots it was so Much more expensive than analog systems So I assumed that the only people who Would be buying the DJI fpv system would Be people with a lot of money or content Creators who could sort of justify it as A business expense but it hasn't worked Out that way DJI is more popular than Analog in a lot of circles in fact some Estimates that I've heard are that more Than half of all fpv Pilots certainly in The USA uh own at least one DJI Quadcopter and many of them fly DJI Exclusively and that gives us a really Good context for understanding the Product that we're looking at today this Is the DJI 03 air unit the next Generation of dji's fpv video Transmitters and it brings a higher Level of performance an increased Feature set basically it's the next Degenerational step for the DJI fpv System oh yeah and it's also even more Expensive and my gut feeling is to say That means I don't know how many people Are really going to be willing to pay This much for it but uh I was wrong About that the last time so maybe I Ought to hold my horses I'm Joshua Bardwell and you're going to learn Something today these products are

Confusingly named so I want to start the Video by just clarifying the product Naming and the conventions I'm going to Use otherwise you won't be able to keep Straight exactly what the frick I'm Talking about when I'm talking about Them this is the fpv goggles V2 and this Is a catex Vista video transmitter if You've got a runcam link video Transmitter that's exactly the same Thing if you have an air unit video Transmitter that the bigger version of This I don't have one to show you all Minor Vistas the small one if you have Any of those video transmitters that Existed from DJI in the fpv system until Today then that is what we could call The V2 fpv system this is the goggles 2 Not the V2 goggles the goggles 2 because That's not confusing and this is what We're calling the O3 air unit it stands For accusync 3 that's the protocol that This air unit is using interestingly This one uses accusync 2 but nobody Calls it the O2 air unit they just call It the calyx Vista now let's talk about Hardware compatibility if you've got the Goggles 2 then obviously you can bind Them to the O3 air unit that makes sense But the O3 air unit can also bind to the DJI V2 goggles so if you're a current User of cadix Vista runcam link DJI air Unit you don't need to buy the goggles Too just to get into this new system

However you won't get the full Performance of the system what if you Got a cadix Vista runcam link DJI air Unit or any of the older V2 video Transmitters they cannot currently be Bound to the goggles too but DJI is Working on this feature and says they'll Be releasing it soon My policy with promised features from DJI is always wait until they release it And then see how you feel about it uh I Think they're going to release it I've Seen some leaked screenshots so I know They're working on it but I just don't Think we should count those chickens Until they're hatched that's my opinion On that so you might think that the Smart move today would be to use the V2 Goggles which you might already own by The O3 air units if you're interested in Them keep using your V2 video Transmitters and save yourself upgrading To a whole new expensive set of goggles But let's talk about those performance Differences between them when the O3 air Unit is used with the new goggles 2 it Can do 1080p at 100 frames per second With acclaimed 30 millisecond latency or 1080p at 60 frames per second with Acclaimed 40 millisecond latency we will Be validating those latency claims a Little later in the video when the same Air unit is used with the V2 goggles it Is only capable of 810p but it can do

120 frames per second with a lower Latency of about 20 milliseconds or 810p At 60 frames per second with a claimed Latency of about 30 milliseconds so if You use it with the V2 goggles you'll Get a higher frame rate slightly but a Lower resolution not slightly and that Difference in resolution that's about Twice as many pixels between 810p and 1080p how much difference does that Really make let's put these two videos Side by side one of them was recorded With the V2 goggles one of them was Recorded with the goggles 2 and I did my Best to not move the quadcopter at all Between the two shots so we should be Able to really zoom in here and see how Much of a difference those extra pickles Pixels actually make which one's better Like there's marginally more resolution On the 1080p one but I really have to Look for it to be honest with you the Place where I mostly see the difference And I've actually spent a fair amount of Time looking at these pictures trying to Find differences the place where I Mostly see the differences over here Uh if I look at one of the goggles You see just a little bit of stair Stepping here when I zoom in whereas the 1080p resolution on the new goggles 2 is Just a little smoother Like now it's like looking super obvious To me how nice and smooth this straight

Line is but anytime that there's just Like sort of messy detail It's much harder To pick out which one's the winner And I think that's going to be even more True when you actually start flying and Things are moving and you've got motion Compression like for example here is a Test image from a flight with the Goggles 2 and the O3 air unit so this is 1080P and here is an 810p image from a Different flight flown with the V2 Goggles go back and forth if you need to Hmm I think the differences are pretty Subtle While we're at it here's an image from The original DJI camera with a catex Vista so this is just 720p resolution All of them at 50 megabits per second Max bit rate all of them doing the best They can and you can compare for Yourself I do think that the new the new Goggles look better I'm not actually Convinced it's because of their higher Resolution the reason that these goggles Look so much better is their screens These goggles have 1080p OLED screens I I have said in the past yeah oled's Better I've never disputed that OLED is Brighter richer colors more saturated Darker blacks no one really disputes That OLED is better than LED LCD for Just image quality I don't think does Anybody really dispute that but I've

Said I don't know if it makes that much Of a difference and if you would really Want to pay extra for it but twice now In my life once with the walk snail System when going from DJI to walk snail After flying a whole day and once with These goggles after going back and forth Repeatedly between the V2 goggles and The goggles too I have thought wow this looks so much Better why does it look so much better And it feels like there's more Resolution and it feels like there's More detail and then you look at the DVR And you can see that there's not that Much more detail there so why does it Feel so much better and I think it's the Screens I think the screens are just Blasting your eyeballs with with Beautiful beautiful color and Information more contrast maybe you just See more details with a more contrasty Screen oh that's actually plausible I do Think that the oleds look a lot better And are a significant upgrade compared To the LCD it's hard to convey with Video just how much freaking smaller and Lighter the goggles 2 are compared to The V2 goggles I'd seen pictures of them Before even on people's faces they're so Much smaller and lighter like they feel Like fpv goggles not whatever these are If you've thought that the DJI goggles Are uncomfortable or heavy V on your

Head these things are a big big Improvement I will say that I like the Aftermarket foam on my V2 goggles more Than I like the stock face pad on the Goggles 2. it's not really foam it's More of a rubbery material it doesn't Have a lot of padding I didn't find it Uncomfortable but I did find that I had To sort of set the goggles in a certain Place on my face so that it rested Against stuff and if it was a wider Thicker more padded foam I felt like I Would have a little more flexibility in Where I put them there was also a little Bit of light leak for me around the nose Which doesn't bother me that much but I Know it drives some people crazy and Thicker aftermarket foam might solve That now we're going to power the Goggles up and that brings us to this The DJI battery pack this is included With the goggles so that's nice but DJI Has made some changes to how the goggles Are powered that are going to annoy some People the battery pack has a USB plug For charging just plug it in wait till The lights light up and it's fully Charged and it comes with a cable that Plugs into it and clips on it's got a Retention clip for safety and that's Nice but keep in mind that this is not a Generic USB power bank it is a two Cell Lithium battery that happens to use a USB plug as its interface so you can't

Use this to charge your phone or Anything else to power the battery pack Up you short press long press if you're New to DJI you'll get used to that very Quickly and once the lights are on it's Fully powered and then we plug it in and That brings us to the next annoying Thing this is the standard Barrel plug That's used on basically all fpv goggles And this is the plug that DJI uses on The new goggles too and uh yeah they're Not the same So if you already have like an xd60 to Barrel plug cable like I have a jillion Of these you can't use it with the Goggles too surely people will start Making Xt60 to Barrel plug goggles for the Goggles too and they'll be available Soon but it is super annoying that they Change that plug for who knows what Reason I know the reason I know why they Did it hahaha this is the other annoying Thing but these goggles are only rated Up to 11.1 volts input so basically not Even a fully charged 3 cell battery Basically they're only usable with 2s And I'll bet the reason DJI changed that Plug was to prevent dumbasses like me From plugging in a 6S battery and then Going hook why did I destroy my glasses So okay DJI you got me I understand why You did it you're gonna have to remember That

Um and if you do use it with aftermarket Batteries you're going to either need a Cable with a voltage regulator in it to Take it down to two cell or you're gonna Need to have two cell batteries let's Plug them in the boot up time on these Things is fast as Frick look they're Already on You can't see that they're on because They also have a face sensor which is Super annoying for doing demonstrations Like this that's literally how fast they Boot up though if you're used to waiting 30 45 seconds for your V2 goggles to Boot up this is better Oh there they are the V2 goggles can Adjust both the inner pupillary distance That is the Lefty righty in the Audi Spacing of your eyeballs and they can Adjust diopter they can have focused Adjustment from plus two to minus eight I have a minus six seven five Prescription and I have to turn it Almost all the way to -8 to get it into Focus so I don't know how accurate that Is but it's a pretty extreme range and a Lot of people are going to be able to Just turn this knob and adjust the focus To exactly where they want it to be DJI Has also done something really smart Once you've got it adjusted you push up On the knob and you turn and screw it in And it locks the knob in place if you Have a prescription that's outside that

Range or like me you have some Astigmatism then they also make these uh These are just lens holders and you can Get custom lenses cut which will then Just fit On here over there and that's pretty Freaking cool too I will say I have an Astigmatism of I think it's around 1.25 And I was able to get a perfectly usable Image just by using the focus Adjustments I think if your astigmatism Isn't too bad you could probably get Away without the custom lenses the Goggles too have built-in antennas and They're omnidirectional antennas it Might look or feel like there would be a Patch antenna some here where here on The front but that's not what DJI says In their spec sheet these two antennas Flip down for storage and that's kind of Nice the other two are completely Internal as far as I can tell There isn't a way to remove them like if You're thinking well I'm going to Unscrew these antennas and put some Aftermarket antennas on to sort of beef Up my range like you did with the V2 Goggles I don't see how that's possible Theoretically you could open the goggles Up I'm Pretty sure there's a UFL connector in There that you could put a new antenna On if you wanted to bodge up your Goggles and void your warranty but no

SMA or rpsma connectors for easy use of Aftermarket antennas but how much Difference does that actually make in Order to answer that question we're Going to do a test I'm going to fly down This road I'm going to fly as close to The road as I can't get close to the Road barred well come on to control my Altitude I'm going to try and fly at a Consistent speed and we're going to look For trouble spots where the bit rate Starts to drop I also want you to know That I am turning my head to face the Quad as best I can while I'm flying Along this road and you can see I'm Holding it 50 megabits per second for Pretty much the entire flight right as We get to this part of the road this is The hardest part uh where things start To get difficult maybe there's a little Bit of an obstruction I don't know but Every time I fly along here if I don't Regain altitude I start to get some Dropout and we can see a reduction in Bitrate down as low as 11 megabits per Second was the lowest ice all please Ignore the RSSI dbm warning in the upper Left it's my flight controller set up Wrong here's the next place where it Starts to get difficult and again it's Dropping down as low as sheesh three Megabits per second I'm kind of amazed Because on the older DJI systems three Megabits per second was barely flyable

There was a big stutter and there were Some stutters through there but more or Less it kinda hung in there I never oh yep it's a little stuttery It's doing its best Let's uh let's see How the other systems do now we're going To do the exact same thing with the V2 Goggles and the iflate Crystal antenna This is a patch antenna not an omni so Should it do better you would think so But I don't think that's what I see in This result so here we come up the road Starting to get to the sort of slightly More difficult part and even now I see The bit rate dropping to the 35s 37s way Earlier than it started dropping with The V2 goggles and as we come through This turn it's dropping 19 24 17 11. We're going to keep going all the way to That sign and see how low it gets but Even though the bit rate doesn't seem That much different to me there were More sketchy Parts where I was getting a Lot of stutters and I felt like I might Be able about to lose it we also see the Bitrate drop to as low as 1.1 megabit Per sec in which is lower than the Goggles 2 ever dropped now some of that Could certainly be chalked up to the Fact that I'm flying the quad I don't Actually just have it like on a on a Cart and I'm moving it through the exact Same path then maybe my head isn't aimed In exactly the same direction every time

But I feel like the conclusion of this Test is that within a reasonable amount Of real world variation the onboard Omni Goggles with the goggles 2 seem to be Doing about as well maybe even a little Bit better than aftermarket antennas Like the iflite crystal it's just one Test and I'm sure more tests will be Done Well as long as we're here let's see how The new generation O3 air unit Stacks up Against the previous generation Vista Video transmitter this is the exact same Set of V2 goggles and the exact same Iflite crystal antenna let's see how it Does So the bitrate is holding on around 50 Megabits per second here as we come into The quote-unquote hard part of the Flight we do see it immediately start Dropping although it's hey there we go Down to 17. boom just dropped off uh you Can decide for yourself how you think The image quality Stacks up the bitrate Seems to be doing definitively worse so There's some new technology in that O3 Air unit that seems to be doing a better Job by the way we are at 1200 milliwatts Here too uh yeah dropping out dropping Hanging in there coming around To the end of the Run oh can't even read The sign get in there get in can you uh No there we go okay now I can read it The O3 air unit is not that much bigger

Or thicker than a Vista just a little Bit and I'm willing to bet that most Frames that Avista fits into will also Fit the O3 air unit but the confusing Part is that they've switched the Mounting from 20 millimeter to 25 Millimeter although maybe that's not so Confusing walk snail did the same thing I assume it's got something to do with The board layout and they just can't Make holes in the board in the other Location more and more frames are going To start coming with 25 millimeter Mounting and so I suppose that's how We're going to be mounting this video Transmitter the screws are M2 in size And dji's official position is that you Should just remove the screws from the Bottom and then get some longer M2 Screws and put them in your frame and Screw them up through the bottom of the Video transmitter of course you could Also use a 3D print or tape and zip ties And whatever you prefer but the camera Is the really annoying part so the Camera has the same 19 millimeter width As most common fpv cameras here's just a A random camera that I grabbed and you Can see that they are the same width so It'll fit in most common frames no Because on most fpv cameras the lens is An M12 style that slides easily between The 19 millimeter standoffs and has Plenty of room to tilt up or down but on

The O3 camera the lens is damn near as Wide as the body of the freaking camera And it is Just Not going to fit between a lot of frames Standoffs I know for a fact that some Manufacturers are redesigning their Frames you only need like another half Millimeter or millimeter of spacing to Make it work but you do need to adjust The frame to make it work and I don't Think it's a given that this camera is Just going to easily drop into whatever Your preferred frame is today but the Reason the camera is so freaking big is That it contains a larger sensor than Most fpv cameras it's a one over 1.7 Inch sensor and that puts it closer to Action camera territory than to fpv Camera territory that means you're going To get well theoretically you're going To get better Light low light Sensitivity better image resolution etc Etc better better better you can decide For yourself when you see more does test Footage later in the video the O3 air Unit has two UFL antenna connectors Similar to the full-size DJI air unit It's going to use dual antennas to get Better perform Uh but a lot of people are going to be Confused by the fact that both of those Antenna wires go into what looks like One single antenna DJI have just

Combined two antennas into one housing I Guess for ease of mounting if you did Decide you wanted to use this with some Aftermarket antennas you already had you Certainly could any UFL antenna would Work or you could use UFL to SMA Pigtails and use SMA whatever you'd like Remember this controller Came with a DJI fpv drone originally and Everybody asked hey DJI could you make It compatible with our air units and our Vistas because we'd like to use it with Our self builds as well as the DJI fpv Drone or instead of and DJI was like Yeah we'll work on that well What they meant was we'll work on making It compatible with the O3 air unit yep You can bind this controller to the O3 Air unit and uh that's cool can you bind It to your old Vistas and stuff maybe There's some hope for that because DJI Says that they are also working on Backwards compatibility for these Goggles so perhaps backwards Compatibility for the controller would Be in there too but we don't know and That's the kind of thing that I meant When I said don't hold your breath don't Count your chicken still they're hatched And wait to wait to see what they Actually deliver but if you have O3 air Units you can use this controller with Them now we come to probably my favorite Thing that DJI did and it's so

Frustrating because you ask DJI for Things and sometimes they don't do them And then it's super annoying but then Occasionally they give you one that you Really wanted and they deliver to the Moon and it's like I love you but I hate You the feature that I'm super excited About right now is that the goggles DVR Records the entire goggle screen Including any menus anything which means I don't have to like try to here look See I just can just talk and record you Can turn it off if you don't if you want A clean DVR recording but for a Demonstration like this So nice so here's what it's like to Actually look inside the goggles now the First thing you're probably going to Notice is beta beta fight OSD the O3 air Unit supports the full MSP DisplayPort Functionality of betaflate 4.3 or newer That's what the paperwork I have says Does it work with kiss does it work with Inev I don't know they didn't say it did Maybe it does but it works with Betaflight 4.3 or newer at least that's Pretty great in transmission we have the Choice to broadcast to an audience we Have the ability to turn Focus mode on Or off and channel mode is set to Auto But if we change that to manual we can See our options and one of the options Is frequency and weirdly you can't Change it to 2.4 gigahertz we know that

The Avada and the DJI fpv drone use both 2.4 and 5.8 gigahertz to get better Range it doesn't seem like the O3 air Unit does that and as far as bandwidth Goes we have the choice of 40 20 or 10 Megahertz and basically this seems to Correspond to a bit rate of 4 14 Megabits per second 28 megabits per Second or 50 megabits per second higher Bit rates are going to give you better Image quality much better image quality But are also going to take up more room In the frequency band if you're flying With other Pilots we can see that with 40 megahertz I only have the choice of One channel with 20 megahertz we have The option of Three channels and with 10 megahertz We have the option of the three channels Folks I can't just let this slide but I Also don't have a definitive answer for You dji's approach seems to be just set Everything to Auto and let Mommy DJI Take care of it I asked them and they Said yeah yeah no you can get multiple Pilots in the air just keep them Separated from each other by a few Meters and it'll be fine but if we don't Know the actual frequencies it's Transmitting on then we can't Interoperate with stuff like analog or Hd0 or walk snail we can't do Channel Management so we can play nice with our Friends and it's possible that dji's

Auto algorithm takes those things into Account but we just don't know at this Point if you are very very concerned About interoperability between different Systems And if you are concerned about Controlling your output power so you Don't interfere uh oh by the way you Can't set the output power on this it's Just Auto you can't turn it up you can't Turn it down it just is what it is so if Those are things that you are very Concerned about then you should probably Hold off on this product until people Like well probably people like mad's Tech is going to get out of spectrum Analyzer and figure it out and then We'll do more experimentation and we'll Figure out how this stuff all works Together and hopefully we'll get some Answers for now we do not have those Answers and I'm not going to put this Video out with video out without Acknowledging that that is a serious Issue that all fpv Pilots should be Concerned about if you ever fly with Other people anyway Until now all of the footage you've been Seeing has been from the goggle DVR to Try to show you what the pilot would see But the O3 air unit also has on-board Recording and one of the things DJI Wants you to think about doing is Replacing your action camera with this

O3 air unit and then just not running an Action camera so as you're looking at This footage don't just think is this Good DVR think would this be better than A GoPro for me or would it be good Enough to replace a GoPro and save me All that weight and all that money when I crash and break my GoPro You may have noticed that I'm not Playing any sound right now yeah the Camera doesn't record sound it doesn't Have a microphone at all and that's Going to be a deal breaker for some People another thing that may make some People stick to a dedicated action Camera is the dynamic range of the O3 Camera this is better in my opinion than The action 2 which I really don't like Its exposure algorithm and dynamic range But I still see a lot of times when I Think that Shadows are very dark and Lacking detail if you prefer a more Contrasty color grade then this may be For you and I think comparing it to many DVR that you would just get on other Units it's way way better but comparing To a full-fledged action camera there Will be some people who won't think it Measures up but there will be a lot of People who think it does measure up and There are some ways you can make it even Better The air unit can also record in a flat Color profile and that's what we're

Looking at right now and if you're Thinking this doesn't look very good That's right it doesn't look good it's Not intended for you to look at it it's Intended for you to pull it into your Video editing program and color grade it Now I'm not very good at color grading So I gave it to my editor who is good at Color grading and this is what he came Up with and I always ask his opinion of Any camera I review it's color science And he actually was pretty impressed With this it's not at the level of Something like a GoPro so for like real Professionals who need the absolute best Possible results they may not think this Measures up but I think for a lot of People this is going to be more than Sufficient frankly I would like to try Flying in the flat color profile this Changes what you see in the goggles as Well and I think it may actually give a Little more Shadow detail than the Standard color profile which is Something I've always sort of struggled With with with DJI action cameras Now the air unit couldn't hope to Replace your action camera if it didn't Have stabilization and it does there's Only one level of stabilization it's Either on or off and I'm going to show You an example of it now I'm just going To start this example by violently Bouncing off the ground a couple times

And then we'll do some flippy flops and You can compare the unstabilized in Goggle view to the stabilized onboard Recording and you can see how much Stabilization there is There is only one level of stabilization Here and there are no additional Features like Horizon lock so the Built-in stabilization is either going To be what you want or it's not but the Good news is that you can drop these Files right into gyroflow and then you Can do whatever the frick you want with Them and tweak them to your heart's Desire I also want to let you know that there Are some issues that people have had With the stabilization algorithm and It's caused by the gyro that's used for Stabilization being mounted in the air Unit in the back of the Quad whereas the Camera that's experiencing the vibration Is mounted in the front of the quad and These these issues don't come up in Every build but when they do come up They make the stabilization kind of Freak out and not work right DJI has Some suggestions for how to deal with it Including changing pwm frequency and so Forth uh I didn't run into it in any of My tests but I do want to acknowledge That it is a known potential issue Whenever I do a review my goal is to Help you decide if you want to buy the

Product that I'm reviewing and I think In this case we've got two products We've got to look at the first is the O3 Air unit do you want to buy the O3 air Unit or do you want to buy cadix Vista Or one of the Gen 2 video transmitters And the second is the goggles 2. do you Want to use the goggles too or would you Like to use the V two goggles instead You might also think well shouldn't you Be helping me decide if I want the DJI System instead of some other system like Ht0 walk snail Etc and I'm gonna make That video which video system is right For you but that's a whole nother video And so in this one we're just going to Assume that you are committed to DJI and That you're trying to decide which of These specific pieces of Hardware is Best for you the O3 air unit is a little Bit bigger a little bit heavier and a Fair whack more expensive 229 dollars Than the V2 video transmitters that came Before it but I'm willing to bet that There are going to be plenty of people Out there who feel that it's feature set The onboard high quality recording and So forth are going to make it worthwhile In fact the person who I think is going To be most interested in the O3 air unit Is the kind of person who decides that The Onboard video is good enough for What they do and stops carrying a action Camera a GoPro or a DJ action 2. that's

Going to save you a ton of weight first Of all so your quad's Gonna Fly better And it's probably going to save you Money because I bet that this guy Mounted inside a quadcopter frame is Going to be more durable than a GoPro Mounted outside it probably depends on How much Bando bashing you do but if you Regularly find yourself taking advantage Of your GoPro insurance policy or buying New runcam oranges You might come out ahead by going with Something like this the range Penetration and image quality of the O3 Is a little bit better than the V2 under Some conditions but bear in mind that You can put aftermarket antennas on the V2 goggles and you can't do that with a New system and under the right Conditions you could have High Gain Antennas that might give you more range Of penetration the other thing to keep In mind is that you can maximize the Output power on the V2 system whereas The O3 has automatic output power and Who knows what that is and how much You're going to get and if you don't Like it tough cookies so some people are Going to actually get better performance Out of the V2 system although a little Less resolution in the image as far as The goggles go I think the decision is a Little bit tougher because the DJI V2 Goggles have been marked down you can

Get them from for 429 some People tell me that that's not in all Regions so not everybody may be able to Get that price but they've been marked Down and you can get them a lot cheaper I actually don't know the retail price Of the goggles 2 as a standalone unit But I think that we can speculate it's Going to come in around 600. the Original goggles came in I think around 575 and these are more and it's 2022 so Things have been more expensive I Wouldn't be surprised to see a price of Six or six fifty so you're saving a lot Of money by going with the V2 goggles And I think that the difference in Performance even if you decide the O3 Air unit is for you the difference in Performance of the O3 air unit when used With these goggles versus the V2 goggles Is not as Stark as the difference Between the V2 video transmitters and The O3 video transmitter so I think a Lot of people are going to save that Money but if you can spend the money my Goodness The OLED screens I'm just I'm just Completely sold on OLED screens they are So much brighter better nicer to slap You in the eyeballs with the image in a Way that and and this is the first time I've ever been able to go back and forth With a digital system between OLED and LCD and just look at the exact same

Image being transmitted from the exact Same video transmitter and see the Difference the screens make and it's a It's a big difference and I think if you Can swing the extra money for the Goggles too the screens The lighter size and weight is going to End the 1080p resolution with the O3 air Unit of course is super nice that is Going to be worth it for a lot of people However They are not currently backwards Compatible with the V2 video Transmitters and DJI says they're going To do that And they probably will but if that's a Key feature for you you should wait Until it's actually done and find out if There are any gotchas that you need to Know about Now that you've decided which of these Products you want to get let me Encourage you to head to the video Description where there are links to These products and they are affiliate Links what that means is that if you Click the links in the video description You go to the Affiliated store and you Make any purchase buy whatever you want Uh I get a small commission videos like This take a ton of work to put in I love Every minute of it I hope you love every Minute of watching it and uh clicking Those affiliate links is a really easy
