    Mobile networks are calling their 4g networks with a slight upgrade "5g" to entice new users. Multiple cell phone companies have got in trouble for it but i think in the end they are still doing it

  2. Ignas R. on May 29, 2022 at 10:17 pm

    Great video. Please keep producing them, especially over the coast line around the island. They are helping to relax after work, and dream about visiting Hawaii someday. Thanks in advance.

  3. Alain Koch on May 29, 2022 at 10:18 pm

    Would 5g have a strong impact on the quality and lags of the image transmission?

  4. R. Andrew Thomas on May 29, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    T-Mobile’s 5G Uses 600 MHz and 2500 MHz for longer distances. They also use the shorter distance millimeter wave stuff, but mainly in the denser urban areas.

  5. Dazdigo on May 29, 2022 at 10:19 pm

    Wouldn’t work that well in Ukraine with all of the infrastructure damage. There likely isn’t enough working relay towers for it to work. I agree with the other commenters that you are just using clickbait and exploiting a tragic situation for financial gain.

  6. subliminal1284 on May 29, 2022 at 10:20 pm

    Be careful posting videos where youre breaking FAA rules, theyre cracking down

  7. Nicolas Hernandez on May 29, 2022 at 10:23 pm

    Is it possible you can put a tutorial video on how to build this I really want to buy one of these.

  8. It's all so bothersome on May 29, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    Just fyi, there are RTF RC airplanes you can strap a gopro on, that can do 100km+ with no solar and no 4G necessary (via GPS waypoint missions). These planes are not only cheaper but infinitely easier to build.

  9. Hacked Robot on May 29, 2022 at 10:24 pm

    Well you know full well that the gubmit don’t want you having unlimited range via cell network, that’s why they discontinued making the plane.

  10. Mohammad Adib on May 29, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    So how do you get lte out there literally everywhere?

  11. Duelly IAmGemini on May 29, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    Shouldn’t list full names of anyone on line… bro specifically loved ones. This planes pretty dope. For 1 dollar a background check can be done on the kid and from the birth certificate track you and. Extorted or scammed.. please edit that out.

  12. HersheyFPV on May 29, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    Just had to put the current thing in the title.

  13. Marshall B on May 29, 2022 at 10:30 pm

    Most of the parts on your list are unavailable at the links you posted :/

  14. unklho on May 29, 2022 at 10:31 pm

    Asking completely out of ignorance after getting my head chopped off elsewhere for even suggesting flying out of line of sight. Do you have a license or are the drone police not as bad as the internet forum police?

  15. Jo LiMag 🇺🇦 on May 29, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    Send it to Ukraine

  16. Chris Bell on May 29, 2022 at 10:35 pm

    5G Cellular is not 5Ghz. It’s 5th Generation of cellular, so more coverage, more bandwidth

  17. Will B on May 29, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    Congrats on the little one! That’s awesome.

  18. Missum Enim Satanas 666 on May 29, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    I have the RV jet and basically did kinda the same. The longest I was able to go with mine was 52 miles and I got nervous a d brought it back. Haha. I’ll eventually go and maybe send someone on ahead just to see how far I can go with it. I love the RV jet. I have the bead tracking as well as many other cool bells and whistles..haha

  19. DA BRICK BOIII on May 29, 2022 at 10:37 pm

    Oh my God guess what I found………. Bluewater~~~~~~~

  20. Jesus found Rudie on May 29, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    Great idea, looks like many cities in Ukraine started getting 4g in 2018. But wonder what the coverage is like. Soo, you fly from a highpoint to escape cell drop outs like in canyons? Am honestly looking into this. Thanks ✊

  21. Dagnabbitz19 on May 29, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    Literally everything on your list is unavailable 😂

  22. Oswald2615 on May 29, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    Scammers must be using a bot because about 1 minute after posting the warning not to respond to Telegram I got a “reply” from telling me to reply via Telegram. Hahaha 🤣. Just check and you will see that every comment has a reply suggesting you should reply to get something including emojis like 📦. Dustin posts warnings with his videos. Pay attention and protect yourself. Oh, and have a great day! Cheers.

  23. Drew Butts on May 29, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    Aren’t these flights illegal? Since FAA says all sUAS flights must be within visual line of sight at all times.

  24. Leewixx on May 29, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    Range test of Mini 3 please???

  25. Jorge de la Torre on May 29, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    Fantastic video … proof we are living in the future. Thank you.

  26. David greenseeker on May 29, 2022 at 10:43 pm

    Do you build and sell these moded uav’s?

  27. Hacked Robot on May 29, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    It would surprise me if there weren’t cellphone antenna on that "automated lighthouse" tower on the island.

  28. Cozumel Ty on May 29, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Congrats Dustin!!

  29. Mystery D on May 29, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Who gives a shit about Ukraine? Feel like you put Ukraine into the title to get views

  30. CoolMovies on May 29, 2022 at 10:44 pm

    Remember it’s ok for a celebrity to use billions of tonnes of CO2 but if you go on holiday for once a year, you’re destroying the planet.
    Don’t worry though, the aforementioned celebrity will let you know what a monster you are.

  31. nada on May 29, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    That’s fuckin bad ass.

  32. Aaron R on May 29, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    Indian Air Force, its been flying for years, maybe the sun cooked its brain? The solar cells on this thing can power an entire farm!

  33. Torro ́s RC Channel on May 29, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    Epic flight 💯🤘🏻😎👍🏻👍🏻

  34. ICANTBELIEVETHISSHIT on May 29, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    Do I need a Part 107 to fly a fpv drone?

  35. George Aguirre on May 29, 2022 at 10:48 pm

    Is there a video describing how to mod the code in the Parrot CHUCK controller? I would love to try mods but don’t know where to start

  36. C Neiner on May 29, 2022 at 10:49 pm

    The government doesn’t want Americans catching them doing their dirty business fro the air. It’s not about safety at all. It’s about control and deception. They want to know exactly where your drone is, but we don’t get to know where their drones are. So what do they do? They make everybody suffer right down to the little kid who’s is just trying to learn FPV to the family man who wants to document his vacation or survey his own property. Anything can be used for bad behavior, but drones are not a dangerous. crooked Politicians and Bureaucrats are.

  37. Blue Canyon Drones on May 29, 2022 at 10:49 pm

    Fun story… I used to work for the company that makes the cell signal booster. When they were designing that particular model, I told one of the engineers in passing that I was going to be road tripping across the country. He then gave me a prototype of it and asked if I’d install it in my car and gather some data for them during my trip. It worked great except for a couple hiccups. Anyway, they took my data and made a few tweaks for the final product and then let me keep the prototype. I still have it and use it today.

  38. TONY MCCLENDON - Hobby Time! on May 29, 2022 at 10:50 pm

    Awesome trip, very impressed. Dustin, you are the BEST. Thanks for your great videos Bro.

  39. Ioannis Batas on May 29, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    Superb !!!

  40. Alex Tisch on May 29, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    Thanks from Ukraine 🇺🇦

  41. Ken Cotton on May 29, 2022 at 10:55 pm

    How do you get around the FAA rule that requires you to keep your drone in sight at all times?

  42. ¿`_ on May 29, 2022 at 10:58 pm

    Stop with trying to help that corrupt Ukraine! The US and NATO have got it wrong as usual. If everyone keeps pushing Putin he’s going to push some buttons ¿`_

  43. haole59 on May 29, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    You question at 42.43 about Molokini. It was made by volcano underwater. It made small island. Then had a eruption and blew out side of crater and eroded part of it away. Just like mashed potatoes and gravy. Same as back side of Haleakala. Kapo gap was where lava drained out of crater. Little history lesson. Aloha. Thanks for all cool vids. Local boy living in mainland.

  44. Russell on May 29, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    Brilliant If the air turbulence wasn’t so heavy here in the mountains I’d take one

  45. superjaykramer on May 29, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    Which video transmitter are you using? dammm 40 miles is amazing, how is the real time quality?

  46. S1mpleSparrow on May 29, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    Something Something BVLOS

  47. Peter Salatas on May 29, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    *FAA has entered chat* 😂

  48. Emad Tayefeh on May 29, 2022 at 11:12 pm

    Is it programmable?

  49. Oswald2615 on May 29, 2022 at 11:14 pm

    Hey Folks – do not reply to the Telegram reply text – it is a scam! Dustin doesn’t use Telegram, but a lot of Russian scammers do. Reply at your RISK!

  50. Oswald2615 on May 29, 2022 at 11:15 pm

    Love it!
