Introduction to Dynamic FPV
FPV pilots are always thinking of new ways to push the limits of racing drones. Take a look at some epic shots that were only made possible with an FPV drone in this pulse thumping compilation of the best in the industry including JohnnyFPV, Red-FPV, airblastr, and more!
Tracking an X Games Gold Medalist
In this memorable FPV video, contributor JZFPV was able to film an X Games Gold Medalist running the paces on an extreme skateboarding course. This video was chosen as a winner of the AirVuz Drone Video of the Week Contest, and you will see why once you catch a glimpse of the moving madness found on this awesome mega ramp! This video has been nominated as a Finalist in the Extreme Sports category for the second annual Drone Video Awards.
Chasing a moving roller coaster
FPV drones allow pilots to get extremely dynamic footage that creates a fun, fully immersive experience for the viewer. Team AirVūz sponsored pilot Red-FPV had the opportunity to chase a rollercoaster at the amusement park, for which he enthusiastically put his multi rotor in the air, resulting in one of the coolest FPV freestyle videos of all time (and by the sounds of it, one of his favorites too!).
Filming a classroom
We guarantee you've never seen micro drone footage quite like this! FPV pilot extraordinaire, KatsuFPV, teamed up with Japanese model group "Onnanocos" to create this brilliant drone video. Staged in a Japanese high school, he flew a 1.6" drone equipped with a RunCam Split Mini FPV camera through narrow gaps and around the school girls. The result is a creative, beautiful, and smoothly orchestrated flight. This video was a Winner in our Drone Video Awards' Micro Drone Angle Mode category.
Keeping pace with a KIA
FPV drone pilots are beginning to get the attention of car companies and marketers, who see the power of using camera-mounted racing drones to film sports cars from the air. The perspective is unique, much different from the one afforded by gimbal-stabilized drones such as the DJI models. In this video, an advertising company teamed up with some top drone racing pilots to create commercial for a car dealer by chasing a car through the streets of Minneapolis.
Dashing through the grocery aisles
Rotorama Racing Team pilot and rebel jimmac does what every kid wants to do, when their mom makes them go shopping, in this super fun FPV freestyle session. He and his friends enter a sporting goods store after hours and take it over with quadcopters, BMX bikes, RC cars, skateboards, and a little basketball. Get on this FPV shopping spree with jimmac and friends then go check out his other rad FPV videos.
Capturing the kickboxing
Professional drone and FPV pilot grid_FPV does live broadcasting via quad cam for events that are shared all over the world from Japan. In this high def FPV footage, he flows in and around an amateur kickboxing match for PANCRASE MMA. Using a custom made micro drone, he keeps in close proximity to the fighters making sure to dodge the jabs and snap kicks being thrown around.
Tagging along in tropics
What happens when the one of best FPV pilots in the world teams up with the best content creator Sam Kolder? In the Caribbean island paradise of the Dominican Republic? Creative gold! Watch as JohnnyFPV puts his skills to the test flying around Sam Kolder while he performs insane cliff jumps. This is cinematic FPV at its best and in a stunning tropical location on the southern coast of this amazing island.
Trailing the pro-wakeboarders
Shooting in 5.2K with shockingly good, next-level stabilization abilities the GoPro Fusion is one serious camera packed into a tiny frame. But, that means nothing if you don't have an agile and daring pilot operating the quad. That's where ShaggyFPV comes in. Combine him, the GoPro Fusion, professional wakeboarders, and some slick editing - you have this epic video by rene-io.
Flying around a frozen waterfall
Have you ever seen a drone video from the inside of a waterfall? Pretty sure you haven't... Not until now! FPV pilot airblastr had this crazy idea to fly through the icy curtain of a waterfall and he actually did it. No quads were harmed in the filming of this Drone Video Awards' FPV Freestyle Cinematic nominated video.
Chasing boarders, skiers, and bikers
This cinematic drone and quadcopter aerial footage has the classic combo: FPV freestyle and action sports. This perfect match up of talented FPV pilots chasing skilled snowboarders, longboarders, skiers, and mountain bikers through epic spots is sure to make some jaws drop.
Shadowing a witchy FPV quad
Something wicked this way comes...and it's zipping around on a quadcopter! In this drone video, FPV pilot nikolay_t chases a broom-wielding witch mounted to an FPV quad in celebration of the Halloween holiday. Go on this FPV witch hunt but be careful of flying curses and hexes that might be cast your way.
Diving alongside a roller coaster
Thanks to Enes_Fpv you can ride a roller coaster from the comfort of your own home. Filmed with a GoPro Hero 5 on his custom quad, this dynamic FPV video was filmed in the iconic Luna Park. The dips, dives, and loops created by the lines of the roller coaster make a perfect match for those Enes_Fpv creates with his quad.
Trailing more roller coasters
The famous Coney Island Amusement Park in Brooklyn, NY comes at us from a different perspective in this epic, one-minute FPV cut by Brooklynmark. Many have heard of the Brooklyn, New York City, New York area, but did you know that it actually has two separate amusement parks, and that three of the rides are listed on the National Register of Historic Places? Seen in this video, the Wonder Wheel opened in 1920 while the The Cyclone was built in 1927.
Exploring the "Artsy" Tokyo Streets
Japanese creative company, NAKED, brought the bright lights and energy of Tokyo to Taipei with the installation, "Tokyo Art City". FPV pilot and contributor SUSTOSFPV was drawn to the flashy projection mapping display like a moth to flame. He takes flight through the artificial streets of Tokyo with his micro drone and explores replicas of famous places like Shinjuku, Shibuya, Harajuku, and Ueno. This video is a Micro Drones Angle Mode nominee in our Drone Video Awards.
Working the (Mining LIft) Room
In this video by top contributor Airblastr, you'll see that drone videos of mines don't have to be outdoor affairs. He flew a micro drone via FPV in the lift room of one of America's most important historic mines. The mine extracted zinc, lead, and copper from underground deposits, pulling them to the surface with the machinery in this lift room. It's near the town of Butte, the western town which has as much claim as any to be the historic mining capital of the USA.
Flying through a house tour
grid_fpv has combined brilliant architecture and nature beautifully thanks to his smooth, skilled flying in this Drone Video Awards' Micro Drone Angle Mode nominated piece. Shown in the digital magazine "designboom," this house is available to rent in Karuizawa, Japan, a resort town in the mountains outside of Nagano. Let this dynamic flight take you on a micro advenutre and leave you inspired to take a trip out to Karuizawa!
High Speed Catamaran Sailing
While gimbal-stabilized camera drones such as the DJI Phantoms have revolutionized the world of sailing, these quadcopters aren't suited to high speed sailing. Even if they are fast enough to keep up with fast-moving sailboats, they aren't able to get shots like what you will see in this remarkable video by top contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot SFPV. He used a GoPro mounted to a racing quadcopter to film some seriously insane catamaran sailing action on San Francisco Bay.
