Chasing an RC Turbine Jet

FPVing a Gas Powered RC L-39

It's Top Gun meets Racing Drones!  Gas turbine radio control jets are the kings of the RC aircraft world; powered by miniature jet engines, they can cost many thousands of dollars and can achieve speeds of hundreds of km/mi. per hour.  First person view (FPV) racing drones provide a great way to see these RC beasts in action, but keeping up with them and "in frame" is notoriously difficult.  That's what makes this video by top AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot nikofilmz so impressive; the RC L-39 turbine looks VERY real, indeed.

Chasing Planes - ZOHD Talon Rebel GT

bjarnerimi...

Who doesn’t love a little air-to-air action, especially when it is set against the mountains of a Norwegian fjord? This air-to-air, fixed-wing drone chase is brought to us by FPV pilot bjarnerimi fpv. He flew his MB Epic 262 V2 quad with a GoPro Hero 7 to capture this 4K chasing flight through the mountains, along the ocean-shoreline and over the waterfalls of the Norewegian countryside. The plane being chased is a Talon Rebel GT, which is also being flown via FPV.

BEST OF FPV - Pinky FPV - Freestyle & Chasing Planes

Pinky FPV...

When a pilot says “best of” in the title of the video, you know you are in for a wild ride. Those two words really up the ante, putting the pressure on the pilot to make sure the work truly encompasses what they can do. This compilation of freestyle sessions by Pinky FPV, set to Queen’s “Somebody to Love,” features plenty of aerial moves around the fields and through bridges, tree proximity work, even some fixed-wing plane chasing. We have to say, this video has earned it’s “best of” title.

Sky Dancing - Carbon Cub Chase

bjarnerimi...

Contributor and drone pilot bjarnerimi fpv created this awesome video from a racing quad chasing a large RC plane.  The plane being chased is the new Eflite Carbon Cub SS, a giant-scale form RC plane that can be outfitted with either traditional landing gear or floats.  It's an updated version of the Carbon Cub SS, which has been one of the most popular giant scale RC airplanes on the market.  The footage of the plane flying over Meløy, Norway is fantastic; you will get as close as it's possible to get to a flying RC aircraft! 

Chasing Two Extra 330's

Pinky FPV...

The Extra 330 is one of the most popular RC airplanes, particularly for 3D pilots.  3D flying is a style of RC flight which takes advantage of the tremendous power/weight ratios in modern RC planes.  In this FPV video by Pink FPV, you will see some epic chase footage involving two different versions of the Extra: an electric-powered foam model, and a gas-powered balsa model. Needless to say, keeping up with a high-powered RC plane flying complicated 3D maneuvers requires tremendous FPV flying skill.  

Chasing a 1/6 Scale P-51D

P51 mustang chase

The P-51D Mustang has always been a favorite amongst radio control (RC) airplane pilots; it's perennially the most popular of the "warbird" scale RC aircraft.  The Hangar 9 P-51D is one of the best 1/6 scale versions of the plane; depending on configuration, it costs around US $800-1000.  A "serious" scale P-51 with a roughly 1.75 meter (about 70") wingspan, it looks great from the ground but even better from the perspective of an FPV racing quad; to see what we mean, check out this fantastic video by simonthedronefreak.

Chasing a $5000 RC Plane

While much of the RC airplane market has shifted to electric-powered foam models, there are still many purists who prefer the authenticity of traditional RC aircraft, which are generally constructed of balsa and powered by gas (nitro) engines.  The largest of these models can cost thousands of dollars, and are virtually impossible to repair in a severe crash.  All of which should be kept in mind when you see this FPV chase video by bluelinefpv, who managed to aerially film a very expensive RC plane with an FPV racing drone.  

Chasing an RC Ducted Fan "Jet""

FPV meets RC Turbine

nikofilmz...

Among the newer additions to the world of hobbyist radio controlled aircraft are electric ducted fan powered airplanes.   EDF's are propelled by internal fans driven by high-powered brushless motors; these planes look and sound like jets.  In this amazing video by AirVuz contributor nikofilmz, you'll be treated to first person view (FPV) footage from a racing drone chasing a Swiss Air Force F-5 EDF; note that the jet had its flaps deployed due to the "low" speeds of 100-120 km/h (60-80 mph).

Top contributor ad 2019 Drone Racing League Champion nurkfpv put together this remarkable video in which he used an FPV racing drone to chase a pair of RC fixed wing aircraft.  Keeping up with a high-speed radio-control aircraft requires an extremely high level of FPV flying skill; simply keeping the target in view is difficult enough, and maintaining the level of proximity you'll see in this video is something that only a few top FPV pilots are able to master.

Propstrike and Run

This latest upload by accomplished pilot nurkfpv has us all appreciating the beauty in simplicity. He’s taking us through a course just as the sun is about to go down. However he’s not running the course at full speed, he’s enjoying Golden Hour and flying at a comfortable pace behind both solo and behind two fixed-wing planes. He’ll even find an RC car to trail behind towards the end of the video.  This video was picked for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in September, 2019.

Chasing an RC Slow-Flyer

Now this is an interesting FPV chase video, brought to us by former Drone Video Awards FPV Video of the Year winner, nurkfpv. Nurkfpv is in Seattle and he’s found an interesting spot to chase an RC fixed-wing through. It’s a warehouse of some kind, complete with pallets, hundreds of packages, and working stations he and the RC fixed-wing will fly through. It’s a smooth flight for both pilots and a fun one to watch for viewers.

Plane Chase Day

bjarnerimi...

Not to be confused with chasing a real plane, pilot bjarnerimi fpv is chasing a fellow RC flyer in this drone video. The two pilots are trying a little air to air action over the wide, snow-covered fields on an overcast day. The technique required to keep a fellow UAV in frame without overtaking it can’t be overlooked, proving bjarnerimi.fpv knows what he’s doing. You can see more videos like this in our RC Plane Chasing by FPV collection.
