Quarantine Reel

rememorale...

The near-shutdown of New York City during the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020 gave first person view (FPV) pilots a chance to fly over parts of the city which are normally too crowded, all the while practicing good social distancing.  Case in point is this amazing "quarantine" reel by top contributor rememorales.  Using a racing quad, he was able to capture some stunningly cinematic FPV footage of the city during this strange time. The video features some epic skyscraper dives as well as other shots from around the desolate-looking city.

First person view (FPV) pilot Angelo Re brings us this unique aerial tour of his home city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  The video was shot while the city was virtually deserted during the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020.  This enabled him to safely garner some unique views of the Steel City's iconic riverfront downtown.  Check out some of Pittsburgh's most well-known sights by FPV, including the Fort Pitt Bridge, Fifth Avenue Place, the Renaissance Hotel, the H.

With the streets of Boston, Massachusetts nearly empty in early April, 2020 due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, first person view (FPV) pilot troncat_fpv used the occasion to create this rather haunting but fascinating video from America's oldest city.  Filming in the Back Bay area around Copley Square, he used his racing quad to dive some of the city's most prominent skyscrapers, including the John Hancock Tower; at 240 meters (790 ft.) it's the tallest building in the New England region as of 2020.

After obtaining the requisite ATC permissions, contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot snail.fpv put together this marvelous FPV video from the Slovakian capital city of Bratislava.  Until recently, this city on the Danube River was not known for its skyscrapers, but (like many cities) it's undergone high rise building boom in the last two decades.  Watch the video for some great FPV dives of the city's tallest buildings as well as the Most SNP Bridge (sometimes called the UFO Bridge) and other spots in this Central European city.

New Orleans, Louisiana. The Big Easy. The historic city near the mouth of the Mississippi River saw catastrophic flooding in August, 2005 when the center of Hurricane Katrina passed just southeast of it and caused much of its water-containing infrastructure to fail.   To this day many of the buildings flooded in 2005 still sit empty. Always spot-on pilot SFPV explored New Orleans and was able to float through some of those places, taking it all in with his quad and landing him on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in April of 2019.

The city of Cleveland, Ohio was once known as the Buckle of the Rustbelt.  Located at the mouth of the Cayuhoga River on the southern side of Lake Erie, Cleveland's steel plants, auto and truck factories, and refineries helped to power the economy of the Midwestern USA for much of the 20th century.  While Cleveland is now more known for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Cleveland Clinic, its industrial heritage is still very visible; witness this first person view (FPV) drone video of the great city.

Monument Circle in Indianapolis, Indiana is home to the Sailors and Soldiers Monument, which was completed in 1902.  This limestone monument is now a symbol of both it's home city and state, and due to the empty streets caused by the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, it was an alluring challenge for FPV pilot vitopulverenti.  Watch this cinematic edit in which he uses his GoPro, his skilled flying manuevers and ReelSteady to create an epic freestyling treat.  We enjoyed it so much we put him on our FPV Pilots to Watch list in April 2020.

Talented AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot Leprechaun FPV used a cinewhoop style micro-drone to give us this incredible tour of the city of Medellin, Colombia.  Most of the footage was shot with a "cinewhoop" style micro-drone, which is small and safe enough to be flown indoors.  The result is a one-of-a-kind "indoor/outdoor" tour of the city, the center of the city, the center of the second-largest metro area in Colombia.  This video was chosen to be on the AirVuz FPV Pilots to Watch list in November, 2019.

THE EARLY BIRD

KeleFPV...

The Midwestern USA city of Dayton, Ohio has a close association with the miracle of flight; it was here that two bicycle mechanic brothers named Orville and Wilbur Wright conceived of the first powered flying machine which came to be known as an airplane.   It's a fitting spot than for some epic first person view (FPV) drone flight, as you'll see in this beautiful video by contributor and FPV pilot KeleFPV.  Taking his racing quad out over the city at dawn, he gives us a view that the Wright Brothers would no doubt appreciate.

FPV pilots are continually coming up with creative new uses for their mini-quads.  One of them is to use their FPV drones to create aerial "city tours" that have a much different look and feel compared to "traditional" drone videos.  Here is an excellent example by AirVuz contributor MiLiKo, who brings us an FPV tour of a famous street called Schloßstrasse in Koblenz, Germany.  The street is the main shopping district in the city, which is located at the junction of the Rhine and Moselle Rivers in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
