Looking for a front row seat to a heart-stopping feat?  Watch this wild FPV video of Base Jumping in the heart of Moscow from a highrise project still under construction.  FPV pilot craig_dt was up to the challenge and provided a crispy clear vantage point of the whole dive. We gasped a bit while we took it in too, and it made the case for an appointment to our weekly FPV Pilots to Watch list here on AirVuz.  Kudos, craig_dt!  To see more of his FPV goodness, be sure to check out his whole AirVuz profile.

This is an intense and majestic FPV dive, courtesy of pilot JZFPV. The Drone Video Awards nominee headed to the mountain and canyon-filled area of Southwest Utah to dive the orange, rocky outback. The ridge line cruising he cuts between the dives is also inspiring due to his abilities and because of the incredibly dynamic location choice. Hats off to you, JZFPV, for this incredible, 4K, FPV freestyle flow flight.

The Lakhta Center, which was completed in 2018, stands nearly half a kilometer (460 meters, or about 1.5k ft.) above St. Petersburg, Russia.  It is, by a significant margin, the tallest building in Europe.  While it was being built, contributor and FPV pilot Controlflow took an epic dive down the building using a racing drone.  As you watch it that the drone is being flown via video goggles at ground level.

We love us some good air-to-air action, and this video opens with reverse shots of smoke-streaming FPV quads flying through the mountains. It's quite the start! Between that, the crane dives, rollercoaster twists and powerloops, and a few surprise shots of an empty waterpark, this video is definitely one to watch.

Some of the best flights aren’t planned, but happened upon. When Fincky’s bando plans were ruined by a not-so-abandoned location, he and his crew decided to rip up a park next to it. Hello glory! The proximity flying around a crane is absolutely nuts. With flow and technique, Fincky just continues to impress all in the FPV community.

RussellFPV...

We have seen some ridiculous FPV diving locations throughout the years, but this one may take the cake. That’s because RussellFPV is diving what looks like a waterfall in the middle of the water (now that’s something to wrap your head around). The shooting fountains sparkle in the sunlight, causing brilliant rainbows to circle around the manmade geysers. His dive take us all around the watery goodness, definitely making it a stand out video.

“Bayview Rise” - Abandoned Silos

InspireFPV...

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 extended version of RussellFPV’s dive in one of the craziest locations we’ve ever seen is definitely worth the watch even if you’ve seen the shorter, freestyle edition. He’ll roll, dive, and float over a man-made geyser out at sea just kissing the water with his quad as it rushes up, out, and over the structure is comes from. He’ll even do a little tree surfing over Japan’s infamous sakura, or cherry blossom, filled trees in between his epic dives.

Located in Dolsan town, part of Yeosu in South Korea, the bridge is on national route 77 and connects Dolsan to Hwatae Island.  FPV pilot Jay Yu flies the impressive span in this bridge diving video.

Extreme mountain diving and mountain surfing doesn’t mean the pilot is in any more danger than usual, but the quad certainly is. Check out this recent flight by FPV pilot COLA who says this dive was an amazing experience and also his best FPV adrenaline rush. You can see why when you factor in how far he traveled, how fast he flew, and the ridiculously sharp edges he navigated his bird through.

Located in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Provence-Alpes-Cöte d’Azur region, the French Alps are a sight to be seen. In the winter, many tourist and locals ski, snowboard, snowshoe, and sled the mountains, while in the summer other can be seen hiking, mountaineering, biking and rock climbing or, if you’re FPV pilot French RC, diving the hills with your FPV mini-quad. His dives into the ravines and around the rock face are massive and exciting to watch.

The Great Pyramids of Indianapolis are part of a commercial development in Indiana.  While they were designed by the famed architect Kevin Roche and are known for their architectural significance, they evolved from corporate workspace to to FPV playground when drone pilot FPV VitoPulverenti sped onto the scene.   He chased up the angular edges and dove down the collossal sides to show his freestyling maneuevers.  With this being his first vid on AirVuz, we're proud to welcome him to the scene and look forward to seeing more of his creative projects.

Travel + Leisure has told us that the famous Guitar Hotel (aka the Hollywood Hardrock Casino) is a bucket list destination, but how many of us really get to see it all up close and personal like FLIP MODE FPV's drone has?  The iconic hotel in south Florida became a freestyle diving playground for this pilot who's clearly put his time into perfecting these acrobatic plunges (was that a backwards dive?), and trust us, the FPV community took notice.  So did we...nice job on making our February 7, 2020 FPV Pilots to watch list, FLIP MODE FPV!

A nuclear power plant is a thermal power station that generates its power from the heat source that is a nuclear reactor. Oftentimes when one thinks of nuclear power plants, you think of the Chernobyl or Fukushima disasters. Many nuclear power plants have been shut down since those disasters because the risk of a meltdown is simply too much. These power plants in the United Kingdom were not nuclear, but have been abandoned nonetheless, making for a fantastic bando to dive.
