The once-distinct worlds of gimbal-stabilized aerial videography and first person view (FPV) video content are slowly converging.  In one manifestation of this phenomenon, content creators who once relied exclusively on aerial platforms like the DJI Phantom and Mavic series are delving into the FPV world, using the greater speed and agility of FPV-equipped quads to create highly cinematic content.  Case in point is this magnificent "mountain surfing" FPV piece from AirVuz contributor MikeBishop.tv, the two-time Drone Video Award winner.

In this stunning video, drone pilot PikaFPV takes us on a long range flight in which he skirts around the hot spots and edges of a very active Mount Etna, on the east coast of Sicily, Italy.  This active volcano, along with its rolling steam and surrounding hills, was enticing enough to call to this pilot in a way that felt entirely ethereal.  His sweeping runs and graceful surfing along the ridges prove he can certainly make the most of the landscape around him.  We noticed that too, and that's why he was added to our FPV Pilots to Watch List on April 2020.

The GoPro Hero 8 is something of a game-changer for first person view (FPV) pilots.  With built-in stabilization, the new camera obviates the need for post-production image stabilization.  Witness this spectacular piece from top AirVuz contributor and FPV Pilot to Watch in January 2020, ChileVuela.  He mounted his GoPro 8 onto one of his racing quads and set out for a rock formation called the Devil's Fang (Quinquili) in Chile's Andes Mountains.  It's situated in the southern Araucanía Region, not far from the border with Argentina.

Mountain peaks, picture-perfect lakes, stunning valleys, and blue-green rivers fill the region in northwestern Slovenia and dazzle all who visit. First-person-view (FPV) pilot KoryFPV takes us to the Julian Alps, specifically the Mangartska jama National Park in Strmec na Predelu. His mountain surfing skills are shown clearly throughout this piece, hitting his line and making the viewer feel like they are truly flying.

First person view (FPV) mountain surfing requires considerable piloting skills; there is generally no recovering a racing quad that crashes cruising along a mountain ridge.  Flying "in formation", with one quad chasing another, ups the difficulty and the stakes even further.  That's what makes this piece from FPV Filmz so incredible.  The video features footage from two very skilled FPV pilots flying in tandem on California's Mt. Whitney, the the tallest mountain in the contiguous United States.

It’s an experience so many of us would never have if not for the talents pilots and quasi-scientists who can build a small drone with enough power to make it to what looks like the ends of the earth.

Long-range mountain surfing looks so easy, and that’s the whole point. Menga FPV couldn’t just drive up to these mountains, he had to ski his way in. Once he was on the rocky, snow-covered peaks he (like other pilots) had to deal with the blinding white of the snow while keeping his proximity tight and his flow smooth.

To see the possibilities inherent in long range first person view (FPV) drone flight, look no further than contributor and FPV pilot beeb FPV.  He mounted a GoPro Hero 7 HD camera to a racing quadcopter and conquered nothing less than the mighty Matterhorn mountain in the Swiss Alps.  In four minutes, he was able to reach the famously symmetrical peak, which stands almost 4.5k meters (about 14.7k ft.) above sea level.  That left enough battery power to safely return the drone and its fantastic footage.
