Action-sports and first person view (FPV) drones are a match made in heaven; in many cases, these agile mini-quads represent the best possible way to capture the action and drama that's so much a part of many extreme sports.  This outstanding FPV reel by AirVuz contributor DAFT fpv speaks volumes about the ways in which talented FPV pilots are using their drones to film a whole range of fast-paced activities.  Filled with shots of skiing, slalom canoing, wakeboarding this reel made the FPV Pilots to Watch list in June of 2020.

VerJan FPV...

Top AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot VerJan FPV put together this epic reel of his aerial highlights from 2020.  Check it out and you'll see why this talented content creator is getting opportunities to film some of the most epic action sports scenes captured via FPV.  You'll see some jaw-dropping footage of BASE jumping, cliff-diving, wingsuits, as well as some great car chasing footage.  For all of these reasons, this was an easy pick for the AirVuz FPV Pilots to Watch list in September, 2020.  

B.A.S.E. Jumping

VerJan FPV...

First person view (FPV) pilot and B.A.S.E. jumper VerJan FPV has created quite the compilation in this Dynamic FPV piece. He’s put together some of his favorite clips of B.A.S.E. jumpers as they barrel over canyons, down mountainsides, and off bridges over rushing rivers. His ability to track the jumpers as they slowly parachute to the ground is second to none.  This video earned him a nomination at the first Boston Drone Film Festival, as well as a spot on our AirVuz FPV Pilots to Watch list in December of 2019.

We don't even know what to call the extreme sport depicted in this first person view (FPV) video by AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot TomzFPV.  Maybe kite-skiing?  It just looks dangerous and wickedly fun, and the only way to film it is the way he did - with an FPV racing drone.   Watch him chase this very brave skier down a mountain, as his subject alternates between "regular" back-country skiing and literally flying down the slope.  We had a hard time deciding whether to be impressed more by skills of the skier or the quad pilot!

Above The Ground - Teaser Trailer

VerJan FPV...

Skydiving, B.A.S.E. jumping, paragliding, hang-gliding, speed-flying, and wingsuit flying are some of the most extreme, intense, and dangerous sports known to mankind. AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) drone pilot and filmmaker VerJan FPV spent the last few months creating a documentary that focuses on these athletes, filming nearly 700 flights and jumps with his mini quad, drone and ground camera. The FPV footage in this video is so inspiring that we placed it on the AirVuz FPV Pilots to Watch list in May of 2019.

Kiteboarding is the action sport that combines aspects of snowboarding, windsurfing, paragliding, skateboarding, wake boarding, and sailing all into one very extreme sport. The kiteboarder harnesses the power of the wind with a power kite to propel themselves across water, land or snow. JohnyyFPV captured two kiteboarders making their way across the water, then sauces it up with some fancy, tight tree proximity flying and skyscraper diving in this aptly-titled flight. This was an easy pick for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in October, 2019.

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.

Matching up some fearless wingsuiting with a highly skilled drone pilot sounds like an epic way to spend the day in our book. Check out the fantastic perspective gained when professional wingsuit pilot Joe Lohmuller was chased down the cliff by the very talented drone pilot VerJanFPV. His undeniably fast quadcopter kept some pretty sweet lines as it raced after the Lohmiller, and of course, the GoPro caught all of those important angles (and sounds like kudos go to WestPsydeFPV for some help on the editing).

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.

Top AirVuz contributor and pilot 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!

Aaron Gwin is a professional downhill mountain biker from Morongo Valley, California, USA. The 31-year-old is a five-time UCI Downhill World Cup Champion and an eight-time USAC Downhill National Champion. Professional pilot and AirVuz FPV Drone Video of the Year Winner JohnnyFPV recently had the chance to work with Gwin as both pros did what they do best - Gwin shredding down the mountain on his bike, JohnnyFPV focusing in and grabbing epic footage of his subject.  This made the FPV Pilots to Watch list in May, 2019.

El Dorado Freeride Junior Ski & Snowboard is the only freeride competition in the Pyrenees (the mountains which separate France and Spain) for 14 to 18-year-olds. Having been around for two decades, it is a big part of the Freeride World Tour circuit. Who better to film these talented athletes than top AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot vasiliz?  See for yourself how this Drone Video Awards Finalist uses his camera-equipped FPV racing quad to create a truly memorable video.

vasiliz...

Top pilot Vasiliz created this insanely good submission to be a drone pilot at the Audi Nines event in Austria, and we're quite happy to see it here on AirVuz too! The video will show you how dynamic FPV videos (essentially, chasing a "moving target") can also be highly cinematic.  Chasing skiiers and snowboarders performing stunning tricks with a racing drone is not easy, and generating footage as cinematic as you'll see here even less so.  It made for an easy decision to put this one on the AirVuz FPV Pilots to Watch list in March, 2020.

"Parkour: a training discipline using movement that developed from military obstacle course training. Practitioners aim to get from one point to another in a complex environment without assistive equipment and in the fastest and most efficient way possible." The definition of parkour is so similar to what defines FPV drone flying it only makes sense that an accomplished drone pilot like SFPV would combine the two in this video. Appreciate the similarities and see why this video earned SFPV a Pilots to Watch nod.

This highlight reel of first person view (FPV) drone footage mixes two exciting elements: FPV chasing and hard-core action sports. Brought to us by top AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot Menga FPV, the video represents a perfect match between a very skilled FPV pilot and equally skilled snowboarders, longboarders, skiers, and mountain bikers practicing their crafts in epic locations.  For its many merits, this extraordinary video was picked for the AirVuz FPV Pilots to Watch list in October, 2018.

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. This was an FPV Pilot to Watch video in January of 2019.

The longboard is similar to the skateboard, but longer and faster due to its wheel size, construction materials, and hardware. Longboard dancing is a style of riding, where the rider moves with the board in a fluid, artistic fashion. Professional longboarder and founder of the international longboard movement, DockSession, Lotfi Lamaali is a legend in the sport.  Top first person view (FPV) pilot Fincky used a "cinewhoop"micro FPV drone to film this talented athlete, earning himself a spot on the FPV PIlots to Watch list in May, 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. His tracking work, mixed with the effortless tricks thrown in throughout the chase, will definitely inspire any FPV pilot watching.

One of the great uses of first person view (FPV) drones is to film fast-moving action sports.  When flown by skilled pilots, these FPV-equipped racing quads can keep up with just about any non-motorized subjects and most motorized "targets" as well.  To see what we mean, check out this amazing FPV video by AndruiFPV, who took his quad out to the Sierra Nevada mountains of southern Spain to film snowboarders and skiers as they shred and top trick after trick. This flight earned AndruiFPV a Pilots to Watch nod in June of 2019.

Adrenaline, anyone?  You'll be needing that, plus coordination, balance, and *dare we say* sheer zaniness (and perhaps extra kneepads?) to skate down these hills at those speeds.  But if you'd rather just watch, FPV drone pilot MEIRELES has certainly got you covered. His racing quad keeps pace as these brave souls cruise down the open roads of Santa Catarina, Brazil, and since he's given us our new favorite 'chase scene,' we've put him on our FPV Pilots to Watch list in January 2020. Be sure to explore his whole profile on AirVuz!

Modern snowmobiles are FAST. Chasing them with first person view (FPV) drones is no easy task - both in terms of speed and the difficulty of retreival when things go wrong.  All the more reason to check out this epic snowmobile adventure by FPV pilot FIncky, who captures crazy things on the thousand-pound machines including popping wheelies, flying high off of jumps, and floating on one side of the machine in a seemingly effortless way.  This video earned our talented content creator a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch List.

The opening shots in this piece are probably some of the most insane paragliding moments we’ve ever seen via drone. The paragliders are flying down a small crevice in the mountains, gliding themselves seemingly easily through the tight gaps then out into the wide open spaces. The Norwegian mountain setting that the gap opens to is absolutely incredible. The content creator behind this epic piece is VerJan FPV, who earned himself a spot on the AirVuz FPV Pilots to Watch list in July of 2019.

The AirVuz Drone Video Awards winner in the FPV Freestyle Technical category has done some incredible work filming athletes for Red Bull. This video, shot with the production team SUPERSIZE Films, features Nouria Newman, the French slalom canoeist who competed professionally from 2007 to 2015. She’s won gold at the ICF Canoe Slalom World Championship and you can see why in this risky trip down the rapids; this video made the FPV Pilots to Watch list in June, 2019.

Chasing Drift Trikes

Drift Trike

BlinKFPV...

Drift trikes are tricycles that have low-traction rear wheels that are designed to drift by, meaning they intentionally lose traction on the rear wheels. They are usually ridden on paved roads with steep downhill grades, corners, and switchbacks. It sounds funny, grown men and women on tricycles racing down a hill, however once you see it you’ll see it’s anything but easy.  AirVuz FPV pilot BlinKFPV captured this group of riders by mini quad, earning himself a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in August, 2019.

Then, all the magic happens. That man is a French Freerun Family athlete, which are some of the best forerunners in the world. The choreography it must have taken to put this cinematic FPV Pilots to Watch list piece together is remarkable in itself, with a line that captures trick after daring trick.

A skate park is a recreational park made specifically for skateboarding, BMX, scooter, wheelchair and inline skating. Most parks won’t even let you hang out at the park without one of those tools for safety concerns. The usually include half-pipes, handrails, pyramids, stair sets, pools, and other object for the riders to grind, jump, etc. You can see a lot of those in this FPV video by GarriSkills who has taken his quad out to the skate park to take in the action.  This video made the FPV Pilots to Watch list in August, 2019.

He took out his FPV drone to record the latest update by the Flyboard Sport company Zapata. The company says their latest Flyboard gives riders superior control and precise maneuverability. The Flyboard, a hydroflighting device that allows the extreme athlete to propel out of the water, is harder to maneuver than the athlete in this piece shows. He and our FPV pilot make all of this look way too easy.

This piece by contributor VerJanFPV lands him in one of our top spots for all the right reasons. Flowing, summersaulting, rolling, ripping, and diving around the canyons while tracking base jumpers, paragliders and high liner walkers, this peice has got a little bit of everything.

The impressive jumps and stunts witnessed in FMX (Freestyle Motocross) make it a fantastic sport for spectators, but we all know the best way to take it in is with a drone like GLDCreative's racing quad. In this killer edit, he chases the ride around X Games medalists Taka Hagashino and Jerryd McNeil.  These are two of the best in the world at their trade, and they participated in the X Games in Minneapolis (also home to AirVuz HQ) in 2019. For all of this and more, GLDCreative was added to our Pilots to Watch list in January, 2020!

This is like a scene straight out of a Mission Impossible film. Running at a full-out sprint on the roof of a building then jumping, flipping, rolling and diving his way down - the parkour athlete featured in this video is impressive to say the least. The FPV pilot following him is just as incredible. Dirty Seagulls continues to impress with this short free-running-by-drone video. Stick around until the end where you’ll find a fun, unanticipated twist.  This video made the FPV Pilots to Watch list in May, 2019.

AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot Airburner brings us this freestyle FPV motocross tracking video with his DJI FPV setup and GoPro 6. It’s a fun, quick session that definitely gives novice FPV viewers a great look at the extreme action sport, and it earned our contributor a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in October, 2019.

Mini quad pilot VerJan FPV has built himself a reputation as a solid B.A.S.E. by F.P.V. pilot. Both acronyms stand for activities that not everyone has the “goods” for: FPV with its finger dexterity, and B.A.S.E. because most people would never jump off a cliff and *hope* they can fly. This vid features jumpers skateboarding off the mountains before parachuting to the ground. VerJan FPV admits he has a special appreciation for people performing these stunts and loves to film them in action!

Once you find out that he spent five months creating a drone specifically for this type of work, however, you’re not as surprised, just impressed. It’s an excellent FPV experience behind the off-road club that is definitely worth the watch.

EXTREME Synchro with paragliders

Ivan Merin...

Paragliding is definitely not for the faint of heart; mishaps that occur when soaring hundreds of feet in the air can easily be fatal.  For those not sufficiently deterred, there's "synchro" paragliding, where two paragliders join up and ride back to earth together.  And what better way to film this extreme of extreme sports than with a first persopn view (FPV) mini drone?  Top AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot Ivan Merino shows us the way in this incredible piece, filming a pair of VERY brave synchro paragliders high above the earth.

Have you ever wondered how people get so good at kiteboarding? The sport is typically practiced on the water where the athlete is standing on a short surfboard and being propelled around by a massive kite. In this first person view video by AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot littlewing fpv we’ll get a look at what practicing for the sport on land is like. He’s following a friend as he surfs behind a kite in the wide-open fields. Instead of a surfboard, the rider is flowing on a skateboard.

Chutes and Ladders

VerJan FPV...

Time to talk some chutes and ladders. No, not the old school board game, the kind you can only do with an epic location and some real-life adventurers. AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot VerJan FPV got the unique opportunity to fly his quad around people literally flying through the air. How? By jumping off the rocky cliffs and paragliding through the gorges. It had to have been a heart pumping adventure for both pilot and thrill seeker alike. Check it out for yourself in this 4K, cinematic edit.

The 68-mile-long Beartooth Highway is a National Scenic Byways All-American road that winds its way through southwest Montana and Wyoming. Drone pilot and cinematographer, airblastr, captures long boarder Zach Bailey as he “sends it” down the Beartooth Pass. The landscape around him is so gorgeous, you almost forget the risk the long boarder is putting himself through. However, every time airblastr tracks in hard on the athlete, you’re reminded just how fast he’s flying down the mountainside.

The extreme adventure that is highlining consists of walking along a suspended line of flat webbing that is tensioned between two anchors. As you can see in this mini-quad drone video by AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot VerJan FPV, it is not easy to do and is made all the more challenging when highliners tie the rope across a canyon. This was our pilot’s first attempt at filming the activity and let us tell you, the shots around 3:30 will give you all the feels.

Wow, what a way to watch some extreme, backcountry snowboarding! AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot vasiliz takes us out to the supremely fresh powder of the backcountry mountain tops at Spain's Baqueira Beret resort in the Pyrenees. Oftentimes, professional snowboarders will be brought in via helicopter since these locations are only accessible by air.

BMX Flow - Cinewhoop One Shot

fpvfilmz...

Top contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot nikofilmz is a master at the difficult art of dynamic FPV - chasing moving "subjects".  It's one of the toughest styles of FPV flight, and it requires a kind of "sixth sense" on the part of the pilot to anticipate where the "target" is moving so as to be able to keep it in frame.  In this excellent piece, he uses a "cinewhoop" style micro-drone to track a very adept BMX rider tackling a challenging course, and with a single shot.  This video was featured on the AirVuz social media pages.
