Now with english subtitles.

No just another unboxing. Also with some hints to don't forget to order (specially in Germany) your Nameplate, liability insurance and a Class10 U3 microSD card in parallel with the Mavic Air.
And that you finally need one hour to get it up in the air the first time. So don't be to euphoric when coming home after work and you have your delivery at home. Most likely you won't fly that evening.

So much to charge up, read and update - always best to get everything prepared and fly fresh the next day/weekend. Good vid

I got it delivered in the morning and spontaneously took the day off from work to have enough time for all the settting up. Still couldn't fly that day because of rain. But nevertheless it was a great day :-)

Loved your video, Obone (your REAL nahme, right?), and my very old, faint German stood me in good stead, making it even more fun (lived their for some years a LONG time ago). Well done.

Lots of basic, useful and NECESSARY advice!

Thats the issue in Germany weather

But DHL did not know that it will come that day.
No scan in Midlands or where ever they import to EU. No Scan at Leipzig... Frist scan in the EU was at Schkeuditz (ok, nearby the airport but not the airport) and from there directly to me (200km)...
One day later they updated the scans on the tracking. Now it have been at all this "normal" places.

But I guess... I would not take a day off for it.

Hopefully my english translation with the YT subtexts was not so bad.

Nice video, useful and informative.

The best bit of advice I heard was the following:

Remember never fly until you hear "Your homepoint has been updated, please check it on the map" and verify it before taking to the air.

English subtitles very good indeed. What I enjoyed most were the German figures of speech that don't translate EXACTLY but are perfect as they are.

Yeah. You must keep them short to be able to read but still interesting.
I would love that YouTube allow different audio streams. But this request is there from several YouTuber but YT don't listen.
