DJI Air 3 Complete Beginners Guide

Just a quick heads up for those looking to pick up the DJI Air 3 (or, recently got it), I finally completed my DJI Air 3 Beginners Guide. This one is even more detailed than my previous DJI Mini 3 Pro Beginners Guide (which has 1.3 million views!), and is packed full of tips and tricks from using the DJI Air 3 over the last two months. Plus of course, more than a decade’s worth of drone flying experience.

As usual, the entire thing is divided up into chapters, which are easily accessed using the YouTube Chapters feature (just drag along the bottom of the video), or you can skip to the sections below:

0:00 Quick Intro
0:40 Controller/Bundle Options
2:05 Battery Considerations/Battery Pack
3:50 Preparing for First Flight
10:24 Flying Basics: First Takeoff
16:16 Obstacle Avoidance Explainer
17:55 Main Video Modes
18:19 Telephoto Lens Explainer
20:15 Slow-mo Explainer
20:50 Vertical Video
21:54 Gimbal Deep-Dive/Customization
24:33 Pro Video Options
27:15 Photography Modes
31:18 Return To Home Explainer
34:39 Quickshots & Mastershots
39:36 Spotlight & POI
42:15 ActiveTrack Explainer
46:38 Hyperlapse
48:22 Waypoints/Flight Planning
53:41 Sport Mode
55:02 Hand Catching
57:06 Downloading Footage (DJI App)

And of course, don’t forget my full DJI Air 3 In-Depth Review, where I focus more on the specs and review-like elements (e.g., what’s good and bad), as well as the DJI Air 3 Active Track video and DJI Air 3 High-Wind Test video.

As always – thanks for watching!

    I recently tried a DIY drone, using HEQ’s drone: SWAN K1 PRO PNP, this drone has VTOL function, also provides flight control and GPS, and it only sells for $499. I put my own gopro camera in and used the HEQ battery. The flight time was about 50 minutes, and the shooting pictures were very stable.
