Chinatown 唐人街 San Francisco Quarantine 🌆

InspireFPV...

Ordinarily one of San Francisco's busiest districts, the city's Chinatown neighborhood was seemingly devoid of people during the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020.  With tourism more or less shut down and the city's residents under a community quarantine, first person view (FPV) pilot InspireFPV was able to get out with his racing quad and film the eerie scene you'll see in this excellent video.  The largest ethnic Chinese neighborhood in the Western Hemisphere, Chinatown lies just west of the Financial District.

AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot Kenny Dorion created this spectacular cinematic FPV video of the French Alps town of Annecy at a virtual standstill during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown.  With its outdoor spaces virtually empty of people, the video brings a unique perspective to the largest city in the Haute-Savoie Department.  Once called the Pearl of the French Alps, Annecy is located at the northern tip of its namesake lake, about 35 km (around 22 mi.) south of Geneva.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, it became possible for first person view (FPV) drone pilots to indulge their passion and never leave their home.  With the advent of micro-sized "cinewhoop" type drones, it's now possible to turn's one own home into an FPV course and capture the whole flight in 4k resolution.   If you want to see what we mean, check it this fantastic piece by top AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot MazzaFPV; he gives us a high-res "cinewhoop" view of his abode, never leaving his chair!

CHINA'S SECRET WEAPONS AGAINST CORONOVIRUS! EXCLUSIVE FPV FRAMES FROM DRON

FPV pilot kupaaa_fpv was fighing the coronavirus in his own way, with the help of his drone and some crafty editing. While living in China, he was certainly attuned to the fear people had of the 2020 pandemic, and he also was aware that this same fear could be mitigated a bit with a little lighthearted humor.  Watch as he flies his quadcoper in a fighter pilot-esque way to shoot down and conquor the virus, alongside some appropriate tunes.  We happily put him in the mix of our FPV Pilots to Watch List in March 2020.

AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot NonexistentJay took to the skies above nearly-empty central Philadelphia as the state of Pensylvania was under quarantine during the Dovid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020.  The result is this epic and unique aerial perspective of the City of Brotherly Love.  It's all here: City Hall and the William Penn Statue, the Comcast Towers, the Eakins Oval.  At the;:15 mark, he even flies through (not under, through) a bridge on the Schuylkill River.

First person view (FPV) pilot Angelo Re brings us this unique aerial tour of his home city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  The video was shot while the city was virtually deserted during the Covid-19 pandemic in the Spring of 2020.  This enabled him to safely garner some unique views of the Steel City's iconic riverfront downtown.  Check out some of Pittsburgh's most well-known sights by FPV, including the Fort Pitt Bridge, Fifth Avenue Place, the Renaissance Hotel, the H. J. Heinz Company complex, and more.

Check out this fantastic first person view (FPV) mini-tour of Los Angeles, California while the USA's second-largest city was deadly-quiet during the Spring, 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, compliments of AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot steven.mov.  The first stop is the famous pier in Malibu, followed by the "Muscle Beach" section of Venice.  Following a stop along the (dry) Los Angeles River bed, you'll head to downtown LA for some epic skyscraper diving around the Wells Fargo Center on Bunker Hill.

As America essentially shut down for business during the Covid-19 epidemic in the Spring of 2020, the downtown areas of even its largest cities came to resemble virtual ghost towns.  Against this backdrop, first person view (FPV) pilots were able to fly over spots that would normally be difficult to access, all the while maintaining proper social distancing.  Case in point is this FPV video by betodiaz, who was able to FPV one of the tallest skyscrapers in Houston, Texas: the 56 story Bank of America Center.

With the streets of Boston, Massachusetts nearly empty in early April, 2020 due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic, first person view (FPV) pilot troncat_fpv used the occasion to create this rather haunting but fascinating video from America's oldest city.  Filming in the Back Bay area around Copley Square, he used his racing quad to dive some of the city's most prominent skyscrapers, including the John Hancock Tower; at 240 meters (790 ft.) it's the tallest building in the New England region as of 2020.

One of the very few silver linings of the Spring, 2020 Covid-19 pandemic was the opportunity granted to first person view (FPV) pilots to capture scenes of places which ordinarily would be impossible to fly over.  Case in point is this fantastic FPV piece from top AirVuz contributor zippomaker.  He was able to use an FPV racing quad to film one of the most iconic sights of Europe: the Roman Colosseum.  One of the great landmarks of the Antiquity, the great open-air stadium was built in the first century AD and could hold up to 80k spectactors.

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.

Being under community quarantine during the Covid-19 pandemic, first person view (FPV) pilots came up with some very creative ways to amuse themselves (and their video viewers) while still practicing excellent social distancing.  Witness this crazy piece from AirVuz contributor craig_dt.  As best we can tell from watching his video, he used an FPV racing quad to deliver some "emergency" supplies to a friend in need.  It's really worth a watch, especially if you didn't think a mini-quad could carry a liquor bottle!

In the Spring of 2020, with most of Europe under quarantine to fight the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, city centers that would normally be bursting with traffic and people became deathly quiet.  Here is one of these scenes, captured via a first person view (FPV) racing quad by top contributor and pilot Dronujemy.  He filmed the old city of Poznań, Poland with his racing drone, creating a (hopefully) once-in-a-lifetime perspective of the fifth-largest Polish city and the cultural capital of western Poland.

With San Francisco under strict social distancing rules related to the Covid-19 pandemic, top AirVuz contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot SFPV put together this incredible FPV "chase" video over the nearly deserted streets of the great California city.  The objective was ambitious: to "dive" the Transamerica Pyramid.  The 48 story tower, which stands 260 meters (853 ft.) above the streets of the Financial District, was the city's tallest building from 1972 until 2018; it's now the city's second-tallest after Salesforce Tower.

While many of us have seen the City of Love, few have seen it from above, and like this.  Thankfully, drone pilot Loud FPV practiced some creative social distancing and showed us that even the rooftops are beautiful in Paris! He climbed onto his roof to fly his quadcopter (from the *top* of a chimney, no less) giving us quick tour of the neighborhood. Even the title of the accompanying audio translates to Song from the Tallest Tower, and it's all so charming we had to add Loud FPV to our FPV Pilots to Watch list in April 2020. Bravo!

With most of Europe under community quarantine during the Covid-19 pandemic, first person view (FPV) flight was one way to have fun and protect oneself and the community by practicing good social distancing.  This could take the form of flying cinewhoops at home or heading out for some solo flight around empty towns.  Witness this fantastic piece by German FPV pilot props-wear.de, who was able to make the most of the quarantine in Germany with some very cinematic FPV flight.

Tomz FPV...

Team AirVuz pilot Tomz made the wise decision to channel his pent up energy and make a cruise around the brilliantly blue waters off of Greece.  While a quarantine may keep the humans at home, or at the very least - politely socially distant - it certainly doesn't mean FPV drones like those of Tomz can't be in the air.  This pilot consistently cranks out incredible freestyle flights, and you just have to check out his AirVuz profile to see why this pilot also consistently makes it onto our FPV Pilots to Watch list.
