Close Proximity Car Chase


Formula Drift Orlando


JohnnyFPV has taken out his mini quad and is getting all the angles at a Formula Drift event in Orlando, Florida, USA. His proximity flying in this piece is no joke; at certain points in the flight, the professional drone pilot gets so close to the windows of the cars you think he’s going to either break the window or crash his quad and watch it shatter in a spectacular fashion. Leave it to Johnny to get just that much tighter and make drift chasing that much more dramatic. This video made the FPV Pilots to Watch list in May of 2019.

Sports Car the FPV Drone Experience // George FPV

George FPV...

We’ve seen a fair number of first person view (FPV) videos following drift and race cars, but this video stands out. Why? His flying style makes you really feel like you could be the one driving the car. That feeling is made possible because of George FPV’s drifting, flowing flying technique as he follows the cars at Adria International Raceway in Smergoncino, Italy. Our only problem with this drone video is it’s too short; we never want it to end!  This video made the FPV Pilots to Watch list in April of 2019.

Keeping Pace with the Aventador


Lamborghini Sunrise


The chill backdrop of his home state of Colorado is usually the focus of top AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) drone pilot FlyLife...except when he had a chance to chase a Lamborhghini Aventador at sunrise. This exotic supercar owns all roads and steals all scenes, but when those scenes are captured by a nimble, racing FPV quadcopter, the car chase hits new levels of excitement.  It's a great example of how FPV mini-quads are allowing us to experience the world around us from an entirely new perspective.  

Chasing Formula E Racers




AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot Red-fpv is without doubt one of the world's top practitioners of the difficult art of dynamic FPV - basically, chasing and filming moving "subjects".  Not surprisingly, he is given chances to film events that most FPV pilots only dream of.  In this piece, he was able to film Formula E drivers Jean Eric Vergne and Antonio Felix Da Costa training for the championship race in this electric car racing circuit.  This video was tapped for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in August, 2020.

Sometimes, first time is the charm. So is the case in this first-timer’s tracking fight by AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot Phety_FPV. He got in his proximity flying during this round of the 2018 French Drift Championship. If you find it hard to believe that this was his first go, you might change your tune once you hear that Phety_FPV used to be the one behind the steering wheel. That unique skill must give him the advantage he needs when it comes to chasing such speedy machines.

Drift Cars in the Rain


Raining DRIFT / Russell FPV Freestyle


Check out this drift by FPV drone video by none other than pilot RussellFPV. He’s taken his mini quad out in the rain to risk the shot with these drift car drivers who are also risking things by taking their cars out in the rain. The rain makes for much less control since the tires don’t have nearly as much traction in the rain as they do on the dry blacktop. Regardless, this event took off and so did RussellFPV’s flying skills.  This video earned RussellFPV a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in September of 2019.

Mountain Drifting in Greece

Chasing Dune Buggies by FPV


SANDOLERO - Chasing Dune Buggies In Glamis


Could there be a more epic way to spend the day??  WestPsydeFPV knew exactly what he was doing when he packed up his high performance drone and headed towards Glamis Dunes and Huntington Beach to chase some sweet dune buggies.

This drone video, which captures the spectacle from the best seat in the house, is quite the wild ride!  For his efforts, our contributor was awarded a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in April, 2019.

Drift Car Chasing Session


// DRIFT //


If there was ever a perfect application for FPV mini-quads, it's probably chasing drift cars.  While even the fastest FPV drones can't keep up with road race cars, drift cars travel slowly enough that skilled FPV pilots can maintain adequate speed to film the action.  And the sliding style of drift cars are perfect for FPV mini-quads, which also "slide" through the air in similar patterns.  For a great example of FPV drift car chasing, check out this piece from betodiaz91, which made the FPV Pilots to Watch list in June, 2020.

Drifting by Flylifeco




Top AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot Flylifeco is turning up the heat with this drift race, car chase FPV upload. The Colorado-based pilot is known for his killer mountain surfing flights, but this tracking series definitely shows off a different set of the pilot’s skills. We look forward to seeing more videos like this one as both FPV and drift racing become more popular sports.  For his efforts, this talented content creator was awarded a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in May of 2019.

Chasing Off-Road Trucks

Drift-Chasing Compilation


Colorado Drifting FPV Compilation


Top AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot nikofilmz is one of the world's best when it comes to using mini quads to chase fast-moving targets.  Not surprisingly, this compilation he put together of some of his best footage following drift cars is a highly entertaining watch.  In most FPV drifting videos, the quad stays at a "respectable" distance from the target.  Not this pilot; see how he gets up-close and personal with these sliding vehicles.  This video made the FPV Pilots to Watch list in July of 2020.  

Pilot JohnnyFPV Chasing Exotic Cars


Lambos in Miami


While most drone filming of sports cars continues to be with gimbal stabilized rigs, first person view (FPV) pilots have been getting into the act as well.  FPV racing drones can fly much faster and thus keep up with sports cars even traveling at significant speed.  It's not for the faint of heart though; one false move and the drone can be destroyed and an expensive car dented.  Legendary pilot JohnnyFPV shows us how it's done with this epic FPV video from Miami, in which he chases a very expensive Italian sports car.

Following the 2020 Lamborghini Huracan EVO

If you’re curious about the gear JohnnyFPV uses in flights like this, he’ll tell you all about it after the footage wraps near the end of the video. 

Flylifeco Drift Reel


Blast Off


Top AirVuz contributor Flylifeco was one of the first FPV pilots to film drifting, a style of car racing in which the auto's slide ("drift") around the course.  FPV mini-drones are the perfect means to films this type of action, as the speeds are manageable and the sliding action of the cars is similar to the way in which the drones slide through the air.  In this fantastic piece, he compiles some of his best drifting FPV footage.  It's impressive to watch, and earned him a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in August, 2020.  

Close Proximity Chase


Always In Action!

George FPV...

Clocking in at only twenty seconds, our only problem with this drone racing video is that it’s too short. Talented AirVuz content creator and first person view (FPV) drone pilot George FPV gets up close and personal with these drift racing cars, tailing along six different vehicles each of which is unique in their look, both body of the car and style.  Featured on the AirVuz social media pages in 2019, you can see more videos like this one in both our Drone Videos of Drift Cars and FPV Car Chasing custom collections.

The Rally FPV Experience

Livyu FPV...

When AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) drone pilot Livyu FPV gets invited to film some rally car action with one of his mini-quads, you better believe he says yes. With drivers getting up to 105 mph (170kmph) on the straight lines, keeping up with the speed is no easy task. However, this talented drone pilot has the skills to do it and his 5-inch quad has the speed he needs to make this video one for the books.  Watch it and ask yourself if there is a better way to experience epic drift car action.

With first person view (FPV) racing drones being increasingly used to film drift car events, one of the things which distinguishes individual videos is the "intro" - ie, the transition from the view of the drift track to the drifting action.  That's one of the things which makes this video by AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot VisionAir such a treat to watch.  See how he sets up with a single shot, which gradually brings the track and the cars into view.  This video was picked for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in July, 2021.  

Modified BMW Drift Car


Drift FPV - INSANE V10 Engine!

George FPV...

If you need any further confirmation that drift cars and first person view (FPV) racing drones were a match made in heaven, check out this fantastic piece by top AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot George FPV.  In this video, he chases a heavily modified BMW series drift car as its consumes its tires flying around the track.  The car is fitted with an immensely powerful V10 engine rather than the rather staid six cylinder with which the car came into the world.  This video was picked for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in June, 2021. 

Rally Car Race


Rally x FPV


First person view (FPV) drones are perfect for filming moving "subjects" that can be difficult to capture with larger, gimbal-stabilized aerial videography platforms.  A perfect example is rally car racing, which is particularly hard to capture due to the varied terrain on which these off-road events take place.  That's what makes this piece by AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot EngineerFpv so impressive.  So impressive that the video was picked for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in November of 2020.  

Drifting Competition in New Jersey


E-Town Gambler Drift Championship


Top AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) drone pilot rememorales brings us this fantastic video from his filming of the E-Town Gambler drifting event in July, 2020.  The competition was held at the Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englshtown, New Jersey, about a 45 minute drive outside of New York City.  Watch him use an FPV mini-drone to chase top drift drivers as they battle it out for a $5,000 cash prize.  This video was picked for the AirVuz FPV Pilots to Watch list in late July of 2020.  

Drift Car Chasing in Abu Dhabi




Drift cars and first person view (FPV) drone were truly made for each other: there's really no better way to track these fast-moving, sideways-sliding vehicles than with a (well-piloted) racing quad.  And the bar keeps getting higher, as FPV pilots hone their skills and get in synch with the car drivers.  Case in point is this excellent piece by AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot 43lensfpv, who flew at a night drifting event in the Persian Gulf emirate of Abu Dhabi.  This video made the FPV Pilots to Watch list in February, 2021.    

Colorado Drifting Festival


Gridlife Alpine Horizon FPV


For a first upload to AirVuz, brand-new contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot ShepstaFPV brings us this fantastic video from the Gridlife Alpine Horizon drifting festival in Colorado.  The video features some of the best FPV drifting footage we've seen, with his drone seemingly just inches from the vehicles as they slide around the track.  Featuring both daytime and nighttime footage, as well as some incredible sideways and backwards-facing shots, this video was tapped for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in early September, 2020.  

Drifting Event in the Alps


My BEST Experience with FPV Drone ! Drift Cars Chasing !

Drone My L...

Top AirVuz content creator and first person view (FPV) pilot Drone My Life brings us this outstanding video from a drift car event in the Alps.  The video opens with some outstanding "setup" shots of the course and the cars (including some aerial footage shot with a DJI Mavic drone), before the "real" action begins.   Here he expertly pilots his FPV quad along the narrow tracks of the course, keeping up with the cars as they slide their way around the track.  This video made the FPV Pilots to Watch list in July, 2021.  

Drifting Fantasy


DRIFTSTASY - Cinematic FPV & Drift feat. Karolina Pilarczyk AKA Polish Drift Girl

Lukasz Lew...

We’ve seen some fantastic rallycar drift races by FPV quad, but this latest upload by cinematic pilot Lukasz Lewenda may be one of the all-time greatest. The 4K, FPV video doesn’t just leave it to tracking the cars, he’ll take them head on, fly side-by-side with the thousands of pounds of metal and, if that weren’t enough, he’ll whip out some tricks with incredibly close proximity to the muscle machines and blacktop. It’s dynamic, exciting, and includes 100% natural sound that really makes you feel like you’re right there with him.

Go Kart Drift



Christian ...

Dacono is a small town in Weld County, Colorado, just a 40-minute drive from Denver. It’s the home of the IMI Motorsports Complex, a 1-mile go-kart track that also hosts dirt or off-road courses and spectator events. That’s where AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot Stealth shot this action-packed shred. He takes his FPV mini-quad behind a variety of vehicles, tracking them as they each take their turn drifting around the track; it's a terrrific example of the emerging media form known as dynamic FPV.  

Car Chasing Fun


AutoMotion - FPV Aerial Cinematography

Lukasz Lew...

There's a reason why you're increasingly seeing first person view (FPV) drone footage in commercials for cars and trucks - filming moving vehicles with a racing drone provides a unique and visually alluring perspective of the "target", which simply can't be matched by stabilized aerial videography platforms.  Keep this in mind when you watch this piece by AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot Lukasz Lewenda; his highly cinematic car chase footage earned him a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in October, 2020.  

DM Bash 2019


Slide into the DM Bash 2019


Slide into the DMs can mean sending someone a direct, private message on social media, but this version of the saying means something totally different.  The Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd, Minnesota, USA, held the “Sliding into the DM Bash 2019,” a drift racing event that included skid pads, donut and figure eight spots, and more. AirVuz FPV Pilot phluxyfpv got the opportunity to take his mini quad out on the track to get tight shots, fly throughs, and tracking shots of the speedy cars.

2019 Polish Drift Championships


Polish Drift Championship 2019 | Qualification | RD6


The 2019 Polish Drift Championships is a series sponsored by Monster Energy. The event includes six rounds of racing in five locations around Poland including these tracks: Tor Kielce, Autodrom Slomczyn, Autodrome Bemowo, and Autodrom Pomorze. Talented AirVuz content creator and first person view (FPV) pilot sajophoto grabbed the incredible footage of the event seen here. His work featuring the race cars was good enough to be featured on our social media pages, and it's proudly displayed in the AirVuz Car Chasing by FPV collection.

Chevrolet Corvette "Commercial"


Corvette Ad | FPV


Increasingly, auto companies are incorporating first person view (FPV) drone footage into their commercials.  With their speed and maneuverability, these quads are capable of creating the type of adrenaline-fueling footage that can't be matched by slower, gimbal-stabilized aerial videography platforms.  To show what we mean, check out this fantastic FPV piece by Drone Huenchurs.  He used an FPV mini-drone to create a "commercial" for the iconic Chevrolet Corvette, earning himself a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in November, 2020.  

Burning Rubber in Oakland, California

This is a different take on FPV by drift car, brought to us by Bay Area-based pilot SFPV. The 2nd Annual Drone Video Awards nominee in both the Tiny Whoop and Micro Drone categories is even better than before, sending it around the donut-making cars. They’re not driving on a track, they’re just burning rubber in some free space under one of the many massive over passes and bridges in the area, so SFPV had to get creative in order to keep the piece entertaining. We’re definitely digging this new look. 

Drift Car Commercial Work


MOLINOL DRIFT | ManuelBass aka MrFPV


As drift-car racing becomes more mainstream and attracts sponsorship from leading brands, it's opened up opportunities for skilled first person view (FPV) drone pilots.  Why?  Because FPV drones provide the best means to film drift cars as they slide around their racing tracks.  Witness this video by top AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot MrFpvv (manuelbass).  He captured this footage in the course of doing commercial work for German lubricants company Molinol.  This video was picked for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in October, 2020.

Race Cars in Spain




Formula E is a unique class of motorsport racing that only uses electric-powered cars. Conceived less than a decade ago, the series is in its fifth season and is sanctioned by FIA. Talented AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) drone pilot Red—fpv was lucky enough to chase down some of the drivers in Spain as they prepared for race day. Seeing these sexy, luxury race cars up close is one thing, seeing them as they rip around the track from the proximity only FPV can bring is a whole new experience. 

Tracking 4x4s in the Elements


Off-Road Clips


AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) drone pilot Yubeta.Blv FPV has broken much ground filming fast-moving off-road vehicles with an HD camera mounted to a racing quad.  This requires extraordinary piloting skill, in many ways more difficult than FPV chasing cars which are confined to roads and have more predictable motion patterns because they are confined to the single dimension of the road.  This video is a highlight reel of his best quadcopter-chasing-4x4 clips, each of which is epic in its own right.  

Toyota Corolla Meetup


The Corolla Meetup - @rolla_broz


Take it for what he says it is, this is a corolla meet up! FPV pilot InspireFPV is taking us out to see how this group of Toyota Corolla owners likes to hang out, meaning they like to line up the cars then drive them as one down the roadways. The Toyota Corolla is a compact car that’s been around since 1966, was the best-selling car in the world by 1974 and has been one of the best-selling cars worldwide ever since. It’s an easy, light piece by InspireFPV that shows the car in a whole new light.
