Famous Scotland Rock Formation


FPV in the Old Man Of Storr


The Store is a rocky hill on the Trotternish peninsula of the Isla of Sky in Scotland. Likely the most famous walk on the island, the “Old Man” is a large pinnacle that stands high and can be seen from miles around. It’s one of the most photographed landscapes in the world. You can see why in this quick FPV video by louishouiller. He’ll ride a line across the rock face, taking in the phenomenal views from an incredible and impressive angle.  This was picked for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in August, 2019.

While Norway is likely one of the most-droned countries, the vast majority of the aerial footage captured here is on gimbal-stabilized aerial videography platforms like the DJI Mavic series.  Far less common is a very different type of aerial footage: that from first person view (FPV) mini-drones.  Case in point is this FPV piece from OMJ FPV, whose highly cinematic footage from the area around Lake Lovatnet in Vestland County in Western Norway earned him a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in August, 2020.  

Volcano Island in Japan


Volcano Island | South of Japan | Cinematic Drone Footage


Japan's Volcano Island is foreboding for most visitors - considering the oppressive heat, humidity, and volcanic ashes - but this remote spot called out to drone pilot Print FPV for some freestyle action. The island is in stark contrast to the Tokyo metro, to which it is approximately 750 miles south. Aside from a few empty roads, there are few signs of life of the 650 odd residents, making it a perfect playground for FPV and creating a video that would place this talented pilot on our FPV Pilots to Watch list in January 2020.

In this excellent person view (FPV) piece by AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot SE_FPV, you'll see the effect that the ReelSteady post-production stabilization software has on FPV footage.  The software took the footage from a GoPro Hero 5 Session and stabilizes it, in effect compensating for the lack of a gimbal on FPV racing quads.  Beginning with some great tree-proximity work and then shifting to a concrete jungle setting, it's a highly cinematic piece which was picked for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in July of 2019.

Cinematic Sunset Coastal Cruising


FPV Long Range Cinematic: Beautiful Sunset


While there's no universally agreed-upon definition of "Cinematic FPV", we know it when we see it.  And we definitely see it in this stunning coastal cruising piece by top AirVuz contributor PimpmyKwad.  Filmed at sunset, this is FPV flight optimized for the viewing experience, which is the essence of cinematic FPV.  His silky-smooth flight takes him way out over the water to a number of mini-islands, approaching each one for maximum cinematic effect.  The flight demonstrates precise control but at the same time is almost hypnotic.

Exploring Glencoe, Scotland


Bidean nam Bian, Glencoe, Scotland


Mountain Surfing is a term of art in the world of first person view (FPV) drone piloting - it basically means flying a racing drone over mountain ridges and down slopes and (of course) capturing it in HD video.  In this video, contributor and FPV pilot ARI3S FPV takes on one of the highest peaks in the Scottish Highlands: Bidean nam Bian.  With a peak elevation of 1.15k meters (about 3.8k ft.), it's the highest peak in County Argyll in the western Highlands.

Cinematic Stabilization with ReelSteady


Cinematic FPV x ReelSteadyGO

Jakob JFPV...

ReelSteady GO is all the rage in the FPV community. The software uses the GoPro’s gyro data instead of traditional image analysis, meaning near-flawless results on virtually any shot. With the advent of more intelligent quads, better pilots, and software like ReelSteady GO pilots are capable of cinematic level FPV footage. This 4K piece by Jakob JFPV is a perfect example of this leap in FPV action, taking us on a realistic flying mission.  This video earned him a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in August, 2019.

Red-Hot Lava on Reunion Island



Black Wing...

For obvious reasons, flying a first-person view (FPV) racing drone over molten lava is.  definitely NOT for beginner pilots.  If something goes wrong in this situation, retrieval is, shall we say, problematic.  Keep that in mind as you watch this epic FPV piece from AirVuz contributor and FPV pilots Black WIngs Movies.  Using a 5" frame quad and the new DJI FPV system, they ventured out over the red-hot lava of an erupting volcano in Reunion Island in the western Indian Ocean.  Highly cinematic, it will not fail to amaze you.
