Hold on to your goggles because we're going in for a dive...right into some of the rawest and raddest FPV freestyle diving vids on AirVūz! These skilled FPV pilots take some of the steepest descending flight paths in some of the sickest sites. Their racing quads free fall along insanely tall chimneys, massive stadiums, craggy mountain cliffs, or even Europe's soon to be tallest skysraper, the Lakhta Center (once completed, of course), stirring up that familiar gut-sinking feeling like you're on a tower drop ride! For full effect, turn up the volume, go fullscreen, and plunge right into these drone videos from our talented FPV community!
Opening with a flyover of a field of Yellow Gorse flowers, FPV pilot Tomz FPV shows us his view of Scotland. The cinematic opening shot is just a taste of what is to come. Our pilot will also feature the rocky edges and crashing waves of the northern nation's coastline, the wide open stretches of countryside and Scottish Highlands, medieval buildings and so much more. All of the footage was shot with the GoPro Hero5 Session.
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.
Nurkfpv and friends go rogue with a TinyWhoop inside a hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. Through whispers and crafty scheming, they attempt an elevator bank dive in the center of the hotel with great success. Props to these guys for taking on the challenge. Watch as their guerilla whoop dive plot goes down in this drone vlog!
Go for a big spin on this FPV freestyle session with contributor Cub3_fpv! Watch him dive and orbit around the world's tallest wind turbine that stands at 205 meters. When you look at the wind turbine, doesn't it just remind you of one giant prop?
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. The dive has made itself a nominee in our 2nd Annual Drone Video Awards FPV Freestyle Technical category.
Contributor and FPV pilot Airblastr created this incredibly cinematic FPV video of a dive down one of the great landmarks of the USA's rich mining history. The Anaconda Smelter Stack, better known as the Big Stack, istands at a height of 180 meters (about 585 ft.). The tallest surviving masonry structure in the world, it was a critical process component for the smelter at the great Anaconda copper mine in Great Falls, Montana. Built in the early 20th century, this was once the world's largest copper mine.
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.
Contributor and FPV TapkiFPV created this epic first person view (FPV) dive of one of the most visible landmarks from Barcelona's 1992 Olympic Games. The Montjuïc Communications Tower (aka Calatrava Tower) was constructed in the years leading up to the games as part of the broadcasting infrastructure for the event. Located in the Olympic Park, the tower stands just over 135 meters (446 ft.) tall. Watch the video to get a unique perspective on this landmark on the city's Montjuïc hill.
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.
In this first person view (FPV) video by contributor and drone pilot wons fpv, you'll see the tallest skyscraper in South Korea from an entirely new perspective. Completed in 2016, the 123 story Lotte Tower stands almost 555 meters tall (just over 1.8k ft.) above the streets of Seoul. Nearly twice as tall as the next tallest building in the capital city, it's the fifth tallest in the world as of early 2019. Wons fpv advises that he flew with permission from the building and took appropriate safety precautions.
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.
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.
The Hwatae bridge is one of the world’s largest cable strung bridges. 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. He’ll take no prisoners as he spans the length of the bridge, dives from the top of the cables down towards the sea, and straight through the dominating pillars.
