Have you ever seen a drone video from the inside of a waterfall? Pretty sure you haven't... At least, not until now! Top AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot airblastr had this crazy idea to fly through the icy curtain of a waterfall.  Instead of just waiting for the urge to pass he actually did it, and the quad survived to tell the tale.  We are told that no quads were harmed in the filming of this video, which was a Finalist at the second annual Drone Video Awards' in the FPV Freestyle Cinematic nominated video.

These bando silos have an interesting history. Located at the Port of San Francisco’s Pier 92, these grain silos on Islais Creek were used to store the grain that was delivered by railway then loaded on to the ships for export. Since abandoned, they are now home to the Bayview Rise mural you see in this bando video by FPV pilot InspireFPV. He’ll dive and explore the urban location, giving us views of the bay and the beautiful murals all at once.  This video earned our contributor a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in June of 2019.

Diving the Tallest Chimney in Europe

Schime FPV...

First person view (FPV) quad diving is a tricky maneuver, and while skyscrapers are obviously great FPV diving "targets" they can be off limits due to safety concerns and/or legal restrictions.  That's why chimneys have always held such appeal for prospective FPV divers - they can be extremely tall, and passerby's are rare to non-existent.  How tall? The tallest chimney in Europe is the Trbovlje Power Station flue stack in Slovenia, which stands 360 meters or about 1.2k ft; it's expertly dived by SchimeFPV in this amazing FPV dive video.
