JohnnyFPV...

Action sports and first person view (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.

Check out this incredible flight by Team AirVuz pilot Tomz FPV, in which he chases Alexis Pinturault, the most successful French skier in World Cup history. As both an alpine ski racer and Olympic medalist, Pinturault offers some fun FPV pursuit around the gates while the racing drone tracks all of the arcing through the fresh powder.  With all of the high energy footage, it's no surprise this video was a collaboration with Supersize Films for Red Bull, and why Tomz was named to the FPV Pilots to Watch list in January, 2020.

Tomz FPV...

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!

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. To film this level of snowboarding was formerly only accessible for companies with the funds to do so.  This video made the FPV Pilots to Watch list in September, 2019.

J-TRUE FPV...

As first person view (FPV) pilots continue to hone their skills and FPV technology continues to improve, FPV video content is proliferating in several directions.  In contrast to early freestyling videos, which were all about showing technical flying skills, we're seeing FPV pilots focusing on making more cinematic shots of beautiful landscapes, as well as increasing skills with respect to filming moving "targets".  This video by J-TRUE FPV illustrates both FPV styles, earning him a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in May, 2020.

The OCIMAG Style Wars have nothing to do with Star Wars, although we’d forgive you for thinking so with the cool logo the competition has! The snowboarding competition is located in Spain and features some top boarders as they take down both the adventure park runs filled with obstacles and the massive runs down the mountainside. Pilot vasiliz tracked some of the contestants in this FPV video. Even viewers who aren’t fans of snowboarding can appreciate the gorgeous scenery in this one.

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 towncenter of Kremnica, Slovakia transformed into a big action arena ready for the likes of some pretty trick snowboarders and freestyle skiers.  This popular event in early February 2020 was the perfect space for AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) drone pilot snail.fpv to capture some epic shots. Watch as he mixes cruises down the ski jump with the athletes and shows off his maneuverability and control, giving us plenty of reason to name him as an FPV Pilots to Watch in February 2020.

Although this killer FPV video represents some of drone pilot Krikzster's first experiences flying FPV freestyle in the mountains, you'd think he's been doing this kind of flying there for years.  Watch as he tracks these crazy good snowboarders down the slopes of resort Roza Khotur (home to several events of 2014 Winter Olympics) outside of Sochi, Russia. While a bluebird sky serves as a backdrop for his dynamic flying, he paired the footage with some complementary intense tunes, creating a film that is quintessentially 'action sports fpv.'

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.
