This DRONE will get you ARRESTED in GERMANY!

September 8, 2019


All I need to do is put my hand like this. Again. 45-degree angle. Sasha: Welcome to another video. So today I’m going to be testing a drone Not any drone but… You know, a kind of an underdog. Competitor to the DJI drones and I’m here with my wife Sasha. There she actually has a… ha. Yea, she has the drone with her and I’m going to be doing a sort of a head-to-head comparison between the new DJI Spark, which I have bought for myself personally, and this which is… you know… basically, a comparatively priced drone in the market here. Same sort of features. Same sort of price. Um… And I’m going to give you a little bit of backstory on that in a minute but let’s go actually find out what the difference between these two drones are and see if this thing can hold a candle to the Spark. All right guys, so we’re going to start by setting up this drone. It’s the “fei ma” (飞馬). Which means flying horse, J.ME, okay? As it comes out the box there are no propellers on it and it’s it’s a little annoying. It’s like the old Phantom 1’s and 2’s and 3’s. Where you have to actually screw the propellers on Let me just get that out of the way. Okay. Alright, so we’ve got the propellers all on here. Take off the “Gimbal Guard” obviously. And now we’re going to go and set it up. I’m going to turn it on and get ready to fly. So… Okay, lights are coming on. Go put it down. Once you’ve got some spectators watching you then it’s time to take off the drone. So I’m just going to hit the takeoff button over here. Let’s try take her off and see how high she’ll go. Okay, I’ve lost signal so I’m bringing it back down now. I lost signal somewhere around about 80 meters up in the air. so… We’ll see if she decides to come back by herself or not. Trying to bring it down again. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem very stable, see I’m not touching it right now, but it’s moving around a lot and that’s kind of a… No.. no-no for any drone because you want those stable shots. It’s a little bit windy but you can see it’s floating all over the place and I’m not touching it. So this is ah…. very unfortunate. This is our biggest problem so far with this drone, is that, it doesn’t seem very stable. And it doesn’t matter about the picture quality. It doesn’t matter about anything. The controls are very easy to use. It’s very intuitive, but this is the problem. I’m not touching it yet it’s floating all over the place. And ah… Yeah, that’s not great. So guys. um… What can I say? It flies like a drone, it looks like a drone. It’s fairly easy to set up and run by yourself, but The biggest issue I can see is with the stabilization Anyway, we’re not here just to test this little bugger out. We’re here to actually try the Spark as well. So let’s get that down let me um… Just hit landing. It should land, right? Landing. Yes. Landing. Let’s see. Down it goes. And there we go. Okay. Okay, now watch this guys. All I need to do is put my hand like this. Again. 45-degree angle. Okay. Now it’s recording. Come on. Come on. See? It follows me around and then Okay. So I can control everything just with my hands. It’s a bit finicky. It’s not… exactly perfect but that’s something that makes this drone very special. If you wanna look at these things side by side, you can see there’s a big difference when it comes to the sizes. But also the features are completely different let’s head on back over there. So as you can see. The difference between the two drones is quite a lot but this also can be controlled with a remote controller. so I’m going to pop the remote control for this thing on and we’re gonna try and do some of the same things we did with the J.ME. except with the Spark. See here’s the big difference. It’s absolutely rock solid and that’s what you want in a drone. It’s not moving around. Everything’s nice and stable. So I can take it down and closer and have very good control over what’s going on there. See I could just leave it there and no problem whatsoever. So you see that’s what makes this a better, more capable drone. Although, I must say that the J.ME can shoot at 4K. Although, it’s only 20 frames a second. It could shoot a 4K. This can only shoot at 1080. Let’s also try to take her up. Further up and then we can see what’s going on. Okay, I’m going to leave it there for a minute. Now you see it’s fair because I shot.. when I shot with the J.ME I shot it at 1080p. 30 frames a second, which is exactly what I’m doing with the Spark right now so you’ll be able to see a head-to-head comparison of the footage and you’ll be able to see exactly what they look like side by side. As you can see it’s not moving around Let’s bring her back. So guys whether or not you want to go for the slightly more expensive but definitely more feature-packed Spark or if you want to give this company a try. Totally up to you. In fact, I’m going to be giving this away. So if you go onto my Patreon page you’ll be able to see all the details will be a giveaway. I’ll be drawing a random Patreon’s name and will be giving it away in about two weeks time. So stick around for that all the details will be up on my Patreon page. I want to say a big thank you to Feimarobotics that actually gave me this drone to test. I didn’t pay for it. Just putting that out there but you know like I said to them and I say to everybody. I’m all about being unbiased and If there’s a product that I think it’s kind of worthwhile or that my subscribers might get a kick out of totally happy to review it and just give my absolute honest opinion, and my honest opinion is… it’s not quite there yet. So yeah. I’ll be putting up a nice montage at the end of this video of all the footage and photos I took with these drones so that you could see and I’ll compare it with the spark. Anyway, Sasha has something to say to all of you before we finish. Sasha: Today’s very hot yeah. (laughs) Winston: Yeah. Yeah. You can see we’re seriously sweaty. So… Sasha: Okay. Stay cold. Stay awesome! Winston: Yeah, I would stay cold if it was possible. Look at this. It’s like 40 degrees out here, and I’m wearing a suit. That’s sweat by the way. Anyway guys. Yeah. Thank you. See you in the next video. So what do you think about all the people here? Sasha: I don’t know: you’re a monkey? (laughs) Winston: Yeah. Yeah. It’s interesting. Hi guys! Can you help me say: stay awesome! 帮我,帮我说 (Help me, Help me say) Stay awesome! Man in crowd: Stay awesome! Stay awesome! Cool! 谢谢,谢谢 (Thanks, thanks.) [Music Starts] [Music Continues] [Music Fades]
