Dynamic FPV Video Collection

AirVūz Soc...

Talented first person view (FPV) pilots are always thinking of new ways to push the limits of racing drones.  One of the newest "branches" of FPV flight is called Dynamic FPV, which is essentially using an FPV racing quad to track a moving subject.  Whether it's drift cars, mountain bikes, sailboats, skiers, snowmobiles, RC planes, FPV drones allow us to gain a totally new perspective on a whole range of activities.  In this compilation, you will see Dynamic FPV highlight clips from some of the world's most talented FPV pilots.

AirVūz pilot nurkfpv's most epic flight of 2017 was a winner in the 1st Annual AirVuzDrone Video Awards for the best Freestyle Drone Video, and it continues to pile on the views, comments, and deservedly, the accolades.  Like a train heist you see in a movie, he unexpectedly lands his quad on top of the moving train he's chasing. It's a jaw-dropping fllight you have to see, although you just may find yourself ducking and flinching as his quad makes these bold FPV maneuevers.  This flight has inspired many creative FPV flights.

Holidays have started! - Croble FPV

Croble FPV...

Train chasing, drift car chasing, jet ski chasing, snowboard chasing, even air-to-air chasing, we have seen every kind of drone chasing video. However, this FPV chase by Croble FPV is something new. He’ll chase a massive, fertilizer spreader/tractor through the farm flying through, under, and flipping around the agriculture machine. Once he’s had enough of that he’ll pinwheel himself around the farm into a dizzying bag of tricks. It’s a short, fun ride, and it earned our contributor a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in June of 2019.

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 crispy clear views of these dirt bikes are courtesy of drone pilot KrissKwadd and his new GoPro Hero8 Black.  Watch as his racing quad tracks the riders barrelling around the track and 'braaaping' their way into jumps and wheelies. His drone gets 'roosted' (dirt bike slang) with a little track mud around 1:59, but KrissKwadd takes it all in as part of the experience.  His full throttle flying has earned him a spot on our FPV Pilots to Watch list in January 2020, so cruise over to his AirVuz profile and check out the rest of his work!

First person video pilot n00b_fpv takes us out into a crowed sky; it is crowed for a variety of reasons and he certainly has his work cut out for him. First, there are hot air balloons surrounding an obelisk. The balloons are colorful and massive, so close together you almost wonder if the balloons themselves would be safe to ride it. Next up, fireworks light up the night. He’ll even fly around a glowing, powered paraglider. This epic session got him picked for the FPV Pilots to Watch list for September, 2019.

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.

Check out this stunning example of dynamic first person view (FPV) flight by AirVuz contributor and pilot tayla_gang_.  Dynamic FPV is a sub-genre within the FPV world which involves using a camera-equipped racing quad to "chase" moving subjects.  The subjects in this case are motocross riders and off-road trucks whipping donuts in the sand.

Mini quad pilot BlinKFPV captured a Cross Championship Race, featuring side-car racing in this incredibly cool 4K FPV video. This edit and flight earned him a FPV Pilots to Watch nod in May 2019.

For an adept pilot like sandfpv, flying around moving humans is his favorite challenge (ever seen his stuff chasing the crazy dd_squad?)...but he went cooler than cool when flew over some action on a frozen lake in Črno Jezero, Slovenia.  The acro-yoga, performed by two talented souls braving the chilly conditions, gave this drone pilot all he needed for showing off his manueverability, and for that we've given sandFPV a cool spot on our weekly Pilots to Watch List in January 2020.  Cheers, SandFPV!
