We head to Germany for this week’s #QuadGoals pilot, Dragon FPV, who uses his quad for awesome videos like diving the tallest building in Munich. He shares his insight about his quad build — and about why he enjoys flying FPV.
“I’m flying this quad from the very beginning, just with some ‘minor’ changes during the 2.5 years … e.g. from 4S to 6S. I was always satisfied with it, so I’m flying three of them. I never have to stop a session early due to a crash. If I’m not able to repair it instantly I just take the next one!
Why I’m flying:
Flying, freedom, almost limitless possibilities … captured for eternity. No matter what the purpose. As a beautiful memory, to dream away, fascination, to move boundaries … and of course also to commercially illuminate your idea from unique perspectives.
This is what multicopters offer me, flown with specially developed glasses from the first person view. The high speeds (well over 100 km/h), the enormous range (under special conditions) and the unprecedented agility offer completely new perspectives on almost everything in our world. But the high precision also allows breathtaking feats – individually or in combination – to be stylishly embedded in the surroundings. There are no limits to creativity. With even more practice, even the smallest places can be opened up, just like buildings from the outside and, with the right equipment, also from the inside.
Let yourself be enchanted by these moments, enjoy the insights and views of worlds you have never been to before, or which you would like to remember back … only now from a completely new perspective.
For me, this topic has arisen from the need not being able any more to practice my old hobbies of skateboarding and snowboarding to the full extent because of my knee and ankle. I was looking for something new. Something that does justice to both of these hobbies.
The lifestyle, always looking for new possibilities, perspectives, moves, combos, lines, places that offer unforgettable views or are perfect for freestyle.
The mindset, always wanting to develop further, challenges, discovering and exploring new things … To recognize limits, approach and then overcome them. Always open for everyone and everything.
And nothing less, the fascination for movement, style, creativity and our world!
I have not only found something that does justice to this … it has inspired me far beyond that. And so it became my passion.”
