DJI OSMO Speed Test w/ Tesla Model S – Episode #2


Hey everyone! Tel Stewart here. Today I’m
going to take the OSMO with the X3 Gimbal on a little speed test. I want to
see how fast I can take it on the road or in a helicopter or something like
that. So for the speedtest I borrowed a friend’s Tesla Model S. I think we’ll be able
to get out to some pretty extreme speeds and push the limits of this camera
see what happens. Well, this will be a pretty quick test, hopefully we’ll see. K here we are…
All right, so it’s kinda makes me nervous, it’s not gonna lie. This is how
it’s attached to the window and I’m gonna watch it closely and make sure
it’s not going to do anything crazy on me before we get to the high speeds. I
think I might need to modify the rig a little bit if I want to go above 80mph. Going above 80mph kinda makes me nervous thinking about it. But
I don’t know if we’ll do it on this test, we will see. So here where at exactly thirty
miles an hour. Everything looks good. It looks pretty solid. Ok we’re going to go up to a
faster road here. We’re gonna get up to forty miles an hour….good seems to be holding up OK Alright we’re going to hit up to fifty miles an hour. Suction cup is still holding really well. The gimbal seems to be holding up okay, I
don’t know if those micro vibrations, if they’re actually
showing up on camera. It’s getting kind of rough out there little bit I can see
that. Attached to the car might be a little too rough, we’ll see. What’s it looking over here? Looks
smooth on my phone Lets hit it up to 60 mph I can see a little bit more vibrations
happening in the camera so I don’t know if thats interpreting over on the
footage. Seems to be doing ok at sixty miles an hour. Before we get to the freeway lets see if we can sneak in
seventy miles an hour. Seventy miles an hour. Right here. Ok, seventy miles an hour. Better slow down here. Good, I’m going to get back down to the freeway. Alright so that seemed
okay. It’s hard to tell until actually go back and analyze the footage. But we’re
going to give that a shot a little bit later and now I’m gonna try to hit eighty,
ninety, and one hundred. Sixty…seventy…eighty miles an hour before merge, no
cars…lets hit ninety. OK so we’re comfortable driving at
ninety. Camera seems to be good and holding out. I
mean it’s looks solid. It looks like it is less… well it’s starting to shake a little
bit. Lets hit one hundred. Ok we’re at 100. It seems to me steady though it looks
like it kind of moved a little bit. Oh camera has lost it. The camera is gone….oh and it is freeking out.
Yeah, the camera is not happy at this point. 100 miles an hour. Not happy at all. Ok so I got to go unlock the
gimbal it actually locked itself, got stuck locked. So I’m actually happy I got it
to about, I think about ninety. I have to go look at the footage and see. I have all the
these angles synced. So I’m gonna try this one more time, go give it a shot. Here we go, launch! Love that feeling. Ok, look for cars… we’re good here, let’s go ahead and just get to one
hundred miles an hour before we get on the on-ramp. And we are good to go. Lets go ahead and hit 100 There’s one hundred miles an hour. And it’s gone! Just going to slow down here. It got back into locked
position I think. Let’s get up to a good speed. So we got 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 105, About a hundred miles an hour. And I have to get off here. Alright got to slow down. So I think what’s happening is the
camera is actually holding out quite well. The gimbal and the
OSMO are actually doing pretty good job at high speeds. I think the problem
is the feature that enables you to grab the gimbal and move it by
hand and it stays there, that feature is being pushed by the wind, and the
wind is basically repositioning the camera and the kind of stays put there.
I’m happy with this I think there’s not a lot of applications that you’d
really need it this fast, but even if you did, you could get a couple of decent shots
before you pass the threshold of about a hundred miles an hour. Seems
to be about 100 miles an hour. I do need to analyze the footage and look at it further but let’s try these one-time, down back, one mile
stretch. And good to go. Alright so we got it seventy miles an hour, and checking for cars, we’re good to go. We’re at 80 miles an
hour. Ok we’ll hit it. 90… good. 91… And it’s pushing it… 104, 110, it’s pushing it And there it goes. I just missed the thing, but yah there
goes It’s now facing up. Alright well that’s a good test. I think it’s a good test. Sustained speeds of about one hundred
miles an hour will push it. Push it around until it just gives up. So this is my last test. This is just for fun, I just pointed the camera into the
windshield just to see how well it holds up just facing a different direction.
Let’s hit it… and we are 50, 60, checking for cars… Merging safely… 80mph… It’s already lost it… It lost it already, not happy at that
direction. Facing forward it was
fine but did not like facing sideways at all. So I think that’s it that’s what’s
happening is the camera, once it starts facing sideways it’s a lot more
susceptible to the wind pushing it around. Sideways is fine at sixty-four. Let’s just face forward I want to chase this car a little bit. Turning around… Turn around…good… It’s kind of sideways a little bit. I’m going to chase this car a little bit. Let’s just catch up to it a little bit. Careful around a biker. Cameras kind of holding up… One hundred… And the camera has lost it. So that’s it, thanks for watching this video.
Make sure to subscribe for future videos like this. It helps us so much, I want to do more videos like this. It’s just fun. I just want to go out do fun things. review things, just get my hands on stuff and talk about it. That’s one of my favorite
things to do and so I’m out doing that right now. And if you think that’s cool subscribe to this channel. Also what did
you think about the video? Was this helpful content helpful for
you if it is let me know. If it wasn’t helpful, I’d love to know what I can
change to make it more useful for you. I’m really trying to make this whole channel
interactive fun, while I’m going out and having fun myself. I mean I don’t want
this to be work, I just want it to be cool. So make sure to check out the other
videos I have about the OSMO also be sure to check out the other tutorials
that are on my channel as well. There is a lot that I haven’t made and we have a lot of
cool plans. Anyways, I’ll see you guys next time.

  1. What a great excuse to borrow a Tesla… grin

    I'd like an OSMO, but don't see myself ever needing to move that fast with one. I don't remember seeing I-15 that empty.

  2. Without any tests, I shot with the OSMO in high speed drive 140kmph max .
    There so I've been done that with my hand holding and it was stable as tripod

    check out mine footage, let me know why in you type of test in even 110 kmph your osmo was not stable like mine,

  3. +TelStewart , quick question, I was wondering what video editing software you would recommend for special effects in videos? I'm really into editing videos and filming and just getting started, so any advice would help. Thanks

  4. What support did you use?
    It is the original sucker of DJI Osmo that right?
    You tell me where I can buy it?
    Think is more reliable than the original 3 suckers?
    Thank you.

  5. You're a bit crazy to try this, but being an owner of both a Tesla Model X and soon to be Osmo +, this was really interesting. Thanks!

  6. I did my first car mounted drive with the osmo last night and within 5 minutes of the drive not exceeding 65 miles an hour, they Gamble failed and the entire handheld unit shut off. Have you ever heard of or seen anything like that? If so do you have any solutions? It did it twice in the same run
