Since the beginning of my interest in remote controlled flight I’ve been watching some of the best quad pilots on YouTube like Le Drib, StingerSwarm, Ummagawd, and Mr. Steele. Their videos are exciting and high energy, who wouldn’t want to by cool like those guys. For the longest time I knew I did but then a funny thing happened . . . DJI released a new video quad. The new Mavic Air is less expensive than the previous Mavic Pro and more capable than the recent Spark so I had to decide to continuing down the “cool” path or divert my track towards epic stabilized video and less crashes. Well, the pic and video below should explain it all. Don’t get me wrong, I still want to be cool like those guys but it might have to wait a little bit longer.
