DJI has revolutionized the world of first person view (FPV) drone flight with its FPV transmitters and goggles, which use a proprietary, low-latency digital video signal.  The transmission delay is small enough that the DJI system can be used in applications requiring minimal latency.  One of these applications is using FPV drones to film drift cars, where even a few milliseconds of delay makes a huge difference.  To see an example, check out this piece from FPV pilot elcuyfpv, which made the FPV Pilots to Watch list in August of 2020.

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.

ECB Wrap Up - Drifting FPV Freestyle

elbuhofpv...

Top AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot elbuhofpv earned himself a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in August, 2020 with this excellent piece from a car drifting tournament on the USA's East Coast.  This video stands out for the quality and duration of close-up footage of these fast moving vehicles, whose tires are designed to let them slide around a race track.  It's not easy to drive these cars and even harder to film them with an FPV mini-drone, particularly when you're flying just a few feet off their bumpers!

Project Zen Staten Island

Consider this bad boy a three-for-one! It features flight footage from AirVuz contributors and first-person view (FPV) pilots ELCUYFPV, CORVUS.FPV, and ELBUHOFPV. The pilots ripped up the sky outside a bando in Staten Island, the New York City borough. The boys will dive, hit every gap, and burn pack after pack through the old site. With impressive technicality and challenging maneuvers this bando is definitely worth the watch, making it an AirVuz Pilots to Watch video in January of 2019.
