    Minute 16
    There is a little indicator at the center-down of the screen that indicate where the aircraft is in relation to the controller. Can anybody help me to set that option on in my mavic air 2? I can’t find that option 🤔

    This is such a fantastic video, thank you for making and sharing it! I'm literally receiving my Mavic Air 2 'Fly More' bundle tomorrow, and I'm so excited that I'm staying up late to watch this video and mentally prep for this new experience. Speaking as someone who's never owned / flown a 'serious' drone before, your video is tremendously helpful. Thank you – I'm a new subscriber, and I look forward to exploring the rest of your content!

    Amazing review, I had to watch this in 3 sessions because there is so much information and my brain kept getting information saturated, killer job man, I just go my firs drone for my birthday yesterday and I think I'm gonna have to watch parts of this 3 more times before I try to fly. Thanks Jeven for an awesome video!!!

    Great video, Jeven! In fact… all your videos have been incredibly informative! Thanks for creating and sharing your knowledge! Question if you do not mind. I am strongly considering purchasing the MA2 with Fly More Combo and Smart Controller. Do you have an opinion on the SC (ie worth it, work well, etc)? I have a somewhat difficult time viewing my iPhone XR's screen in sunlight and that is one of the biggest reasons I am considering purchasing the aforementioned bundle. Thanks in advance if you can offer any advice! Cheers, brother!

    Love the videos bud, just bought a mini 2 and your vids have helped me me right out. Any recommendations on a decent programme for editing footage/photos? I'm also a novice when it comes to this too 🤦🏼 TIA 👍🏻

    Javen can you or someone tell me how I can turn the drone position/locator that's located on the bottom center of the drone. I don't see one on my new air 2, and I can't fine a place to turn it on. Pleas advise. jimmycrane

    Thank you for an easy to understand video. I am new to drones and and your video answered alot of questions for me. I have one other,, can you or would you suggest a phone just for the drone besides just your personal phone. Do you have a preference in phone brand? Thanks in advance and thank you again for the great information.

    Thank you! Really well done video… subscribed!

    I saw a guy walking and talking, while the Mavic was filming his face, seemingly moving backwards to keep the same distance during the entire scene.
    Do you know how to set up the Mavic 2 to do that?

  9. Jeff Estrada

    I have watched lots and lots of videos about beginners guide to this drone. This is the best one! It’s clear, concise and interesting the way you present it. Also it’s very comprehensive a real credit to you for being so thorough.
    A big thank you for this 👍👍😉

    Jeven – I received my Mavic Air 2 a couple of days ago, but found the DJI tutorials seriously lacking. Your video, however, has really put my mind at ease, and I'm ready to start testing tomorrow. Thank you!

    Im a keen amateur photographer looking to buy my first drone and I stumbled on this video. Absolutely fantastic, thank you. Well presented, factual and easily understood information.

    I figured out how to get the Mavic Air 2 to work with a specific Premium VR headset. I will trade what I know for matrice 200 series or maybe an Inspire 2. This is legit. I am the only person in the world who has figured it out. DJI hasn't responded to my emails. I've been poor my whole life and I just want to have one thing that I could never have afforded on my own before.
