YouTuber fouseyTUBE Yousef Erakat, the Palestinian-American YouTube personality, began his career on YouTube with fitness channels, but his popularity grew particularity after he began making Middle Eastern videos. He has since become one of YouTube’s biggest stars with well over 8 million subscribers on his main channel alone, and another 2 million on his secondary vlog channel.
He specializes in sketches, pranks and parodies on his main channel and vlogs about his life on his secondary channel DOSEofDFOUSEY. In it he regularly does price giveaways and unboxing videos in which he presents products he bought for himself or sometimes his fans in the giveaways.
Its on his vlog channel that he in the past few months presented a variety of drones that he used for his vlogs and just to simply play around.
Around July 2015 he purchased the DJI Phantom 3 Professional, one of the primary drones on the market. It is among the best drones for aerial photography and videography with its 4k video camera, 12 megapixel photos and one of the best 3-axis stabilization gimbals out there which allowes for incredibly smooth footage. The drone can be tossing in the wind and still deliver very smooth footage at 4 times (4k) the resolution than most video cameras.
Despite its easy flight and GPS-assisted steering and easy controls and autopilot, Yousef has a penchant for crashing the drone. He recorded well over 7 crashes with it, at one time even cutting himself on the propellers, requiring stitches. The drone needed to be fixed several times over and after the last crash, the company doing the repair service made him a special gift.
Along with his repaired drone the company sent him a custom-made Carbon Fiber DJI Inspire 1 Pro drone, with a professional 4K Zenmuse X5 camera and its 3-axis stabilization gimbals.
The drone is without doubt the best drone currently on the market under $5,000US, delivering aerial photography and 4k movie-quality rivaled by few. It is also the only drone with a retractable arm system that moves the landing legs out of the way so the camera can have a clear view from under the belly. While the camera can be controlled by one person via the remote and a screen to monitor the in-flight camera, it is possible that a second person can control only the camera with a second remote.
Yousef was incredibly thankful for the gift, expressing his gratitude on his vlog channel and urging his followers to also thank the company.
