First-person view (FPV) mountain surfing requires considerable piloting skills; there is generally no recovering a racing quad that crashes cruising along a mountain ridge.  Flying "in formation", with one quad chasing another, ups the difficulty and the stakes even further.  That's what makes this piece from FPV Filmz so incredible.  The video features footage from two very skilled FPV pilots flying in tandem on California's Mt. Whitney, the tallest mountain in the contiguous United States.

In the early days of first person view (FPV) drones, flight footage was often difficult to watch - certainly, nobody would call it "relaxing".  Fast-forward a few years, and "relaxing" is an accurate description of the footage in this excellent piece by AirVuz contributor and pilot halitic.  Shot over the mountains of Austria, the footage from a long-range cruise over a ridge of the Alps is beautifully smooth and stabilized.  It was enough to earn our content creator a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in October, 2020.

ARI3S FPV...

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. It's located just south of the town of Glen Coe.
