Diving Europe's Tallest Chimney


Diving the Tallest Chimney in Europe

Schime FPV...

First person view (FPV) quad diving is a tricky maneuver, and while skyscrapers are obviously great FPV diving "targets" they can be off limits due to safety concerns and/or legal restrictions.  That's why chimneys have always held such appeal for prospective FPV divers - they can be extremely tall, and passerby's are rare to non-existent.  How tall? The tallest chimney in Europe is the Trbovlje Power Station flue stack in Slovenia, which stands 360 meters or about 1.2k ft; it's expertly dived by SchimeFPV in this amazing FPV dive video.

Diving an Erupting Volcano in Iceland


Looking Mother Earth Right in the Eye


For first upload to AirVuz, brand-new contributor icelandaerials brings us this absolutely spectacular first person view (FPV) drone video of an erupting volcano in Iceland.  The video was filmed over and around the Fagradalsfjall volcano, which began spewing lava in late March, 2021.  The eruption marks the start of a long-awaited resurgence of volcanic activity on the Reykjanes Peninsula, in southwestern Iceland.  Highly cinematic,  this video was an easy choice for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in March, 2021.
