FPV Diving Lakhta Center, Europe's Tallest Skyscraper

controlflow

The Lakhta Center, which was completed in 2018, stands nearly half a kilometer (460 meters, or about 1.5k ft.) above St. Petersburg, Russia.  It is, by a significant margin, the tallest building in Europe.  While it was being built, contributor and FPV pilot Controlflow took an epic dive down the building using a racing drone.  As you watch it that the drone is being flown via video goggles at ground level. The dive has made itself a nominee in our 2nd Annual Drone Video Awards FPV Freestyle Technical category.

Welcome to Paradise (Miami) - Johnny FPV 2018

JohnnyFPV

Top FPV pilot and drone racer JohnnyFPV, a regular on the Drone Racing League series programming, is the almost undisputed master of cinematic FPV flight; he also has the largest social media following of any FPV pilot. When those forces come together (like in this video)  it's a media pipe dream.  Watch this footage as he cruises the beaches of Miami with his racing drone and dives high rises that line the beach, chases yachts out on the water, and finds that coastal flow in this golden hour paradise.

Across the East River from Manhattan, Brooklyn always lacked some of its glamour.  In recent years though, Brooklyn has seen much more construction of high rise offices and residential buildings, and some of its neighborhoods are now as desirable as Manhattan.  Contributor and FPV pilot BrooklynMark uses the Brooklyn waterfront as the backdrop for many of his videos; you will be amazed at how this part of New York looks when seen from the perspective of an FPV drone.

Rising from an abandoned subway track and all the way to the top of a New York City skyscraper, FPV pilot decay covers a lot of air diving all the way down.  Bathed in golden sunlight the buildings he dives in this guerilla flight have a contrasting warmth to the cold subterranean bando.

The Telkom Landmark Tower in Jakarta, Indonesia is 220 meters (720 feet) of pure FPV building dive bliss.  Home to the main Indonesian telecommunications company, it is the tallest of three towers in an office complex that was constructed beginning in 2012 and completed in 2017.  It has a hypnotic LED display that runs the entire length of its exterior.  In this epic flight, FPV pilot om.antonfpv shows us his talents as he dives the skyscraper during the day and the night!

FPV Brothers

This first person view (FPV) video from FPV Brothers will give you an entirely new perspective on the great city of Seattle, the informal regional capital of the USA's Pacific Northwest.  On an (untypically, for Seattle) reasonably clear New Year's Day, a GoPro Session 5 affixed to a TBS Crossfire racing drone was used to dive (piloting with video goggles) the 76 story Columbia Center; at 284 meters (933 ft.), it's the tallest building in the Pacific Northwest and one of the half-dozen tallest on the West Coast.

Exphrasis

Scaling up and down the tallest buildings in the city, you quickly see why Concrete Surfing was featured on our social media pages. With dizzying amounts of loops and spirals, this video makes you feel like you're free falling out of the Wells Fargo and Bank of America buildings. We'd call this a pretty successful dive session.

Trail any committed FPV pilot and you’ll see for yourself that it can take hours of traveling and searching to find the perfect spot. The opening minute of this video by SH FPV is all about that drive, taking him to the center of the bustling business district in Bangkok, Thailand. There he found a very old cemetery, empty and perfect for a good rip right in the heart of the district. But that’s not all, right after that flight was the dive to end all dives - the King Power MahaNakhon skyscraper. This beauty is 78 floors and 1,030 feet of glassy smooth diving.
