Affiliate links and Making Money on youtube.

Why I use affiliates and how it helps me create more content and videos for you guys. Affiliates help me bring in extra income and move towards doing the channel full time. Youtube ad revenue is not as lucrative as many people think. Sometimes a video that takes a day to make nets you about $50. This might be ok for some people to live on but for me with a young family and a mortgage to pay in australia they are a necessity. I have no issues giving a negative review and I have more negative reviews from banggood than any other company. It doesnt stop them sending products and they often take the feedback on board and improve it for next time.

Holybro is the only company who has paid me to do a review and you can see the results of just what that cash got them here. Did it influence the review? You decide – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fq2Ma4TLGvM

Stew, you do a wonderful job on your videos. The wall behind you is a testament to your love of fpv. Thank you for your reviews and sharing the love of this exciting sport!

Shane Hale says:

Stew help… How can I go about getting my wife and kids into this hobby so we can enjoy it together???

John McKay says:

Thanks for the rambling! I rate it quite highly! 🙂 Appreciate the honesty and see the necessity of affiliates (for everyone!).

Drone Hero's says:

Stew, I have a logistic question. I also have a drone related youtube channel that I want to grow over time. I read a lot of your comments. It would appear that you have a method of traveling the earth, sneaking into peoples rooms, and physically forcing them to watch videos with content they were not interested in. How do you make time to do this to thousands of people, work a normal job, raise a baby, and bring us these awesome videos. Keep your titles, content, and everything you do the same. Everyone in his comments complaining, seriously I’m pretty sure he did not force you to first click, then sit thru this entire video, keep your negative comments to yourself unless I am wrong no one forced you to watch.

mikro T-Rex says:

hey Stu.. dont worry man. keep those vids coming with the links. most of the timeb us subscribers rely on reviews to buy stuff or parts used in builds anyway. so if you take something away from the vid, why not give something back. you’re gonna buy the item anyway. keep those reviews coming. cheers

Pixel Pusher says:

not another video on this……..are you for real or not? keep it real, keep the viewers.

DroneMatesFPV says:

HI Stu just want to share with you something I learned, and amazingly I think I have locked in my quad’s Tune, Holy S#@#&%#@#T.Been doing my tune for the last 6 hours. I know, but it’s my first time. Pretty dam excited too. First I went to Joshua’s video but, no offense to him. His vids were a bit confusing. So I went to Mr Steele’s video It was easier but not in beta flight. But he did say you could use his PIDS and RATES as somewhere to start. So after I reduced the rate at the end of my sticks. From 1167 degrees to 1052 degrees I did fine the quad was more in control at center. Which is where I do most of my flying. I do like it a bit more doey at center, with hard full banks for rolls. Anyway thought your viewers might be interested . Seems that PIDS and RATES are quite controversial and I don’t understand why? Is it like a Pissing competition between race Pilots? maybe you could answer this question for me in your next Q&A.

PTFPV says:

Q&A = Do a reveiw on these. They look crazy. I would like to know how good they are for the cheap price and possibly a step forward to the hobby. Do you think this could be a new thing people will use in the future? http://www.gearbest.com/fpv-goggles-monitors/pp_630101.html?lkid=11098317

Drone Hero's says:

I WANT the affiliate links!!!!! I want to watch your review, and depending all the factors and possible other reviews I watch just click the link where YOU were sent the product from and buy it. If I am purchasing online SOMEONE is getting a cut for posting the link. I want it to be the person who helped me make the decision to buy. You give us knowledge we would be making blind purchases to otherwise. I don’t want to go hunt the product online, I want it from the vendor that got it to you in one piece and is supporting the reviewers to do this.

jgreg95 says:

You’ve got a little up in the middle of the night with baby red eyes going  on there 😉 ,  been there. Be well – Get Paid!

MORLEY-NATOR says:

Off topic, just listening to your video and admiring the vertical arm talon behind you. Does it come in an X configuration or just stretch X?

LJ_Hobby_Life says:

Good Info, I’ll make sure next time I purchase something that I bought basically because of you, I will use your link. I did not know this and I’ve bought the Turnigy Evolution and Taranis QX7 based on your reviews and your reviews never fail me!!

Terb says:

lol, awesome intro.

spooner Graham says:

God help us all ,if youtube ever went

Ryan Welsh says:

Hey Stew, love your reviews, they have helped me get into the hobby so shout out to you for that.

on a side note.. How do you like the techorbitz 1300mah 75c batteries? do they stack up against your personal favorites?

thanks again bud keep up the good work!

josh weber says:

Alright Stu, here’s a question. What wind speed is too high to fly my quad? What is safe? And how might it affect video? Thanks!

Jared Turner says:

Hi Stu
I have a question for your Q&A
I saw a converter that would allow you to stream your go pro or other direct from the vtx, would this be a good idea and get rid of the normal camera? Haven’t got one so not sure about lag? What do you think?

Jimbo in Thailand says:

Stu, playing the devil’s advocate here, it’s not just the ‘affiliate’ cancer, it’s YouTube channel reviewers, such as yourself, partnering with the usual suspects online drone vendors/manufacturers in order to receive free drones, accessories, etc., to review and keep. This heinous practice is absolutely ruining a once-valuable resource for potential buyers and lovers of the hobby.

Regarding your channel, since subscribing a few months ago, I keep seeing a growing number of drones hanging on the wall in your studio each week. I’m guessing they were all sent to you as freebies to review… and keep. While it may or may not affect your own reviews, it certainly has affected many other ‘reviewers’. Just since late last year, when I decided to enter the drone hobby, I’ve noticed that too many YouTubers have sold their souls to these usual suspects for monetary gain. Their reviews get more and more biased as time goes on and are mostly bullsh1t these days. Obviously, honesty and integrity tend to take second place when money/income/greed is at stake.

Stu, I hope you do well in the future as I generally like your reviews, but urge you to not let yourself fall into the greed-before-integrity trap that has claimed so many Youtubers’ souls.

Cheers from Thailand!

UAVfutures says:

Please someone make a video of them watching me, watching Bruce’s video, watching Josh’s video. Check out those other channels and anyone about to buy something, regardless of which channel you watch, link or not, I would suggest cross referencing first and getting as many opinions as possible.

Stu! I just made a video of me watching you, watching Bruce, watching Josh… check it out
