    I just finished a clip that discusses a few "single points of failure" on most drones that can be avoided with a little prep.

    If you can I'm a list guy, it would be nice to have a pre flight list and maintenance list. How many hours before you replace the blades and rotors for example. Just an idea

    Good video and good luck with your endeavors. I watched most of it as well as some of your other posted videos. My advice for what its worth, this should be a 3-4 minute video, not 20 minutes. You discussed a lot of topics, put those into other "short" videos, keep on point. This is the internet, we want our info like crack, 20 minutes will not work to tell people to check their props, look for dirt and know your surroundings. For example, you start off the video talking about all the systems DJI has put in place to avoid crashing. This, should easily be its own separate (5 minute) video with its own appropriate title as search criteria: "crash avoidance systems in the phantom 4". I've also seen you caveat your video's on how "you really like DJI and you're not bashing them", separate video! Compare what you like about DJI to other drone manufacturers and do it as separate content. Don't waste time on each and every video, caveating that fact. Of course, if you're just doing this as a hobby, then so be it, don't turn it into a job and dont listen to me :) Everything seems professional and high quality and easy to understand, keep it up and I look forward to seeing more! And now, for the TLDR which is so fitting :)

    TLDR: His video is is great but too long, goes beyond video topic, does not take advantage of separate, categorized content for seo purposes, suggest he stick to point and length low.

    Very informative. I watched the entire video. Where I disagree with the previous post is that educational videos are not the same as artistic videos. It's very rare to find an educational video that only runs for a few minutes. I did not find the duration of the video to be a problem. I also want to complement the presenter for his outstanding briefing skills.

    Interesting...I was surprised that nothing was mentioned about calibration. IMO, not calibrating the compass and IMU, is really the fastest way to lose your Phantom.

    Basic Blah Blah, basic "you should" know !
    Use common sense, and know unplanned manufacturer errors will occur, so plan and expect them !

    A bit off topic but what software are you using to create your videos? It looks a lot like the old Visual Communicator which I loved and is no longer available.
    Thanks.

    Another way to cut down on time is to not spend so much time talking about the obvious. Everyone knows that the battery powers all of the systems, no need to describe each thing the battery powers, we know. I didn't make it through to the end either.

    It's not giving him a hard time, just friendly advice. I'm actually subscribed to his channel and have gotten a lot good info from his videos. I even purchased a Microraptor hard case and backpack based on his review. This one was too long for the amount of content, though.

    Helpful and informative. Gave me some dangers to think about I never thought of.
