VerJan FPV

Verjan FPV dominates some ginormous crimson rock towers in the deserts of Utah, USA.  His long range session looks like he sent his quad all the way to mars with the fiery red landscape lit up by the transitioning sun.  Smoke in the distance from wildfires in Colorado create an even more unearthly vibe in this gutsy long range flight.

Really good long range flying is not as easy as these guys make it look and we're not just talking on the sticks. Oftentimes there are mile-long hikes through the elements involved in order to get the best, most cinematic shots. Hikes like the one JZFPV says he took to create this piece. He says "Utah never dissapoints," we say neither does JZFPV. Speed, flow, accuracy, and perfect shot-framing make this flight and edit one for the books.

Cut on fire

doclate

Long-range FPV flying is absolutely magical for FPV fans and non-fans alike. 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. Pilot doclate takes us on a long-range flight through the snow-covered mountains, surfing his way down the peak's long, untouched edges.

The Slovenian Alps are incredibly beautiful in spring. The purple flowers that dot the landscape are crocus sativus, or saffron flowers.

Cinematic "Long Range" - Mountain Surfing

WestPsydeFPV

We didn't think mountain surfing or cinematic FPV could get any better, until we saw them blended together in this edit by WestPsydeFPV. Man were we pumped! The breathtaking views and superman-like feelings we've come to expect with mountain surfing were made all the more entertaining by the cinematic qualities of the edit. His color filters, speed and reverse editing skills and a music selection that was most definitely spot on jumped this piece into our Pilot's to Watch list for the week of March 8th.

Big Mountain Dive - FPV long range - Quadcopter

Menga FPV

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. Did we mention the cold fingers? It’s a task, but when done right it looks so good and so simple - just how pilots like Menga FPV want it to look.

Epic Long-range Drone Flight - Uncut

beeb FPV

To see the possibilities inherent in long range first person view (FPV) drone flight, look no further than contributor beeb FPV.  He mounted a GoPro Hero 7 camera to a racing quadcopter and conquered the 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.

Ride Up Mountains is a group that skis up mountains just as fast as they ski down them. Yep, you read that right. BOMBA_FPV came along for the ride, recording the whole thing from his FPV quad. He'll float under, through, around and behind the riders as they take the mountain by storm. It is a seriously cool and entertaining experience!

Valkyrie's Ride [Cinematic]

Cst FPV

In Norse mythology, a Valkyrie choses who will live and who will die on the battle field. Then she picks her few from the dead to come live with her in Valhala, where they will prepare for the epic battles of Ragnarök. She's pretty epic. It's easy to see why Cst FPV was inspired to name this cinematic mountain flight after the mythical warrior women, because it too is epic.
