Chasing a freestyle skier
Action sports and FPV drones is one of the best combinations that this industry has to offer! In this edit by top drone racer and FPV freestyle pilot JohnnyFPV, watch as he follows some of the world's best freestyle skiers at the Audi Nines competition at the Sölden ski resort in Tyrol, Austria. This amazing FPV film was nominated for the AirVuz Drone Video of the Week Contest in the Spring of 2018 and was our Winner in the Extreme Sports category for the 2nd Annual Drone Video Awards.
Diving after a B.A.S.E jumper
FPV pilot VerJan FPV never rejects an opportunity for a unique flight experience as seen in this freestyle chase around B.A.S.E. jumpers! As these thrill-seekers careen off a steep cliff, VerJan FPV makes sure to capture the action from all possible angles. The first diver free falls downwards upon his quad and releases his parachute slingshotting himself back up and away. See both diver and quad flip and roll through the air in this awesome drone vid!
Tracking a mountain biker
Join FPV master airblastr while he races through the woods chasing a professional mountain biker! The lines and cinematic shots he's able to capture are one of a kind, as they were taken at a super-high speed that's only possible with a nimble, yet lightning-fast racing drone. This cruise through the woodland track around the biker will blow your mind (and perhaps push your heart rate up a few clicks as well). This video is a 2nd Annual Drone Video Awards' FPV Freestyle Technical nominee.
Following a slackliner
With the rugged yet scenic Black Hills of South Dakota serving as a backdrop, Airblastr's stunning capture of a brave individual working his way across a 250 foot slackline is a sight to behold (but of course even better when seen up close and personal, via's Airblastr's FPV drone). This amazing and highly cinematic FPV video was a finalist for the AirVuz Drone Video of the Week Contest and is definitely worth a view...unless you're ready to hook up to a slackline yourself.
Racing alongside skiers
Ripping around, alongside, and past skiers racing down moguls, SUSTOSFPV makes tracking athletes look like a heck of a lot of fun. The man-made track, located in the resort town of Karuizawa near Nagano, Japan, is alongside trees full of autumn foliage, creating pretty unqiue views for skiers and video viewers alike. Did we mention the proximity and powerlooping in this edit? So good!
Chasing indoor freestyle skiers
Freeskiing meets FPV freestyle in this rad drone chase video that takes place in an indoor sports arena. Complete with snowy slopes, this indoor skiing event puts these freeskiers' masterful tricks on display; and FPV pilot, Golden VAL, flew alongside the winter sport action to show off his flight skills. Check it out to see both ski and quad execute some sick flips and spins!
Long-range tracking of snowboarders
Really good long range flying is not as easy as these guys make it look and we're not just talking on the sticks. Oftentimes there are mile-long hikes through the elements involved in order to get the best, most cinematic shots. Hikes like the one JZFPV says he took to create this piece. He says "Utah never dissapoints," we say neither does JZFPV. Speed, flow, accuracy, and perfect shot-framing make this flight and edit one for the books.
Pursuing a mountain biker
FPV plus MTB is the way to be. Drone pilot Red—fpv takes us through yet another adrenaline-charging FPV flight in this mountain bike chase drone video. Riding in perfect tandem with the cyclist as he charges downhill, winding through trees, and taking wild jumps, he also takes a few chance moments to throw in a few manuevers and exhibit his epic skills as an FPV pilot. Don't miss this one!
Chasing boarders, skiers, and bikers.
This cinematic drone and quadcopter aerial footage has the classic combo: FPV freestyle and action sports. This perfect match up of talented FPV pilots chasing skilled snowboarders, longboarders, skiers, and mountain bikers through epic spots is sure to make some jaws drop.
Trailing a kite boarder
Content creator SOAR Aerospace combined two action sports to make this awesome drone video: FPV freestyle and kiteboarding! Watch him zip around professional kite boarder, Blake Olsen, as he cuts through the waves of the Florida Keys on his kite board. You may have a tough time deciding which is the more impressive - the kiteboarding or the FPV piloting - while trying to keep up with him!
Racing after a skateboarder
In this memorable FPV video, contributor JZFPV was able to film an X Games Gold Medalist running the paces on an extreme skateboarding course. This video was chosen as a winner of the AirVuz Drone Video of the Week Contest, and you will see why once you catch a glimpse of the moving madness found on this awesome mega ramp! This video has been nominated as a Finalist in the Extreme Sports category for the second annual Drone Video Awards.
Hot on the trail of a wakeboarder
If flying a racing quad over water was the first frontier in FPV, over-water flight while filming a wakeboarding must be the sixth or seventh. And if there is anyone who can unlock the power of FPV drones to film an epic wakeboarding session, it's JohnnyFPV. This video was shot on the waters of Lake Minnetonka, a large recreational lake just west of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Racing against the machines
It doesn't take long to see why this video was voted as the best of the week in our Drone Video of the Week contest. Sekile sets the scene with dynamic close up shots of his Armattan Chameleon, then flows right into some excellent tree work. His unqiue editing style helps build the piece, however the real beauty of the video is around fifty seconds in where his quad gets within inches of bikers and fourwheelers. Talk about catching some lines!
Tracking a speedflyer
Contributor Red-FPV is one of the top FPV pilots in France. His specialty is using racing drones to film epic scenes, particularly action sports. In this video he tackles the sport of speed-paragliding. That is, using a paraglider modified for speed and flying while wearing skis. You have to see it to believe it, and those who know anything about FPV will appreciate how insanely difficult it is to keep a racing drone camera focused on this type of moving target.
Rippin' alongside a mountain biker
FPV pilot airblastr goes on a mountain biking rip session adventure with his buddy at the Copper City Trails in Three Forks, Montana, USA to put his FPV skills to the test. The vast landscape seems to tempt him away from chasing his MTB pal, but he still manages to keep his flight low and his proximity close.
Cruising after junior skiers and snowboarders
El Dorado Freeride Junior Ski & Snowboard is the only freeride competition in the Pyrenees for 14 to 18-year-olds. Having been around for two decades, it is a big part of the Freeride World Tour circuit. That team of riders combined with the epic flying capabities of Drone Video Awards Nominee vasiliz, makes for one epic and cinematic FPV video.
Chasing snowboarders through the trees
This 80-second video by WG FPV earned him the title of FPV Pilot to Watch in January, 2019. Flying low behind snowboarders launching off jumps, up and around the rails and through the trees it's a quick edit that makes a cold, snowy winter look a little less daunting and a lot more fun.
Storming down the slopes after a boarder
This is one entertaining trip for a slew of reasons, one of the main ones being Livyu FPV's flying style, swooping above and around his subject like it "ain't no thang." It was -4F with 37 mph winds; he says nothing could have prepared him to fly in those elements but he was glad he got what he did in. This edit also shows how big of a difference good music selection and editing to that music makes when creating an entertaining piece.
Cruising around motocross and 4x4s
The tight following shots in this FPV edit are so good! Tayla_gang_ gets after it in this cinematic freestyle ride along with friends, ripping past motocross riders and above trucks whipping donuts in the sand. It's a quick, one minute edit full of fun and inspiration.
Speeding after motocross madness
Once you've watched motocross via an FPV drone, you can't go back to the same old ways of watching the extreme sport. With the frightening proximity we've come to expect from these type of flights, theflyingshoes kicks it up a notch with some fantastic slow-mo and landscape shots that really give you a feel for the location and intensity of the ride.
Racing down the slopes
The only thing better than skiing or snowboarding in the mountains is watching it via an FPV drone. It’s not like many of us can even fathom trying some of the jumps these extreme athletes are landing anyway. FPV drone pilot i.like.slush gets up close and personal while filming some of his friends as they get major air on a perfect, fresh winter day.
Chasing freestyle skiers
The open of this FPV video by Red—fpv will make you feel like you’re the one flying down the hill on skis. He does a magnificent job running the mountainside just like the extreme, freestyle skiers he follows later in the piece. There’s tricks, crashes, behind-the-scenes, tree proximity, and more all jam packed into this impressive FPV freestyle ski film.
Zooming after motocross
FPV and motocross are a match made in heaven. There really is no other efficient way to capture these extreme athletes as they make their sharp turns, nail-biting jumps, and kick into dynamic speeds then through the eyes of an FPV quad. Space FPV does one heck of a job not only capturing these BMX bikers, but really bringing the experience to life through his quality editing.
Chasing BMX bikers
Action sports and FPV go together like peanut butter and jelly. It just works oh so well. This proximity flight around a freestyle BMX biker shows why. Flying low and tight around a friend, Bullkiller_Fpv has an action sports video to be proud of - after all it earned him an AirVuz FPV Pilot to Watch badge.
