Diving Moscow City's Skyscrapers


Moscow City


Take a first person view (FPV) drone dive down some of the tallest skyscrapers in Europe in this fantastic video from AirVuz contributor kuznetcov.kirill, which was picked for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in October, 2022.  The video was filmed in the Moscow International Business Center, an ultra-modern district located a bit to the southeast of central Moscow.  As of late 2022, the complex was home to seven of the ten tallest buildings on the European Continent, led by the 1.2k ft. (374 m) tall Federation Tower.

Santo Domingo is the capital and largest city of the Dominican Republic, a Caribbean nation which shares the island of Hispaniola with Haiti.  With a metropolitan population of nearly three million, Santo Domingo's architecture varies from colonial era churches to modern skyscrapers.  It's the "modern" Santo Domingo which AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot Lougedo tackles in this impressive video, which was picked for the FPV Pilots to Watch list in August, 2021.  The video features some amazing skyscraper diving in this dynamic city. 



Concrete surfing


Scaling up and down the tallest buildings in the city, you quickly see why Concrete Surfing was featured on our social media pages. With dizzying amounts of loops and spirals, this video makes you feel like you're free falling out of the Wells Fargo and Bank of America buildings. We'd call this a pretty successful dive session. 

Bok Tower, Tulsa, Oklahoma


Downtown Cruzin


Drone pilot VANDALfpv has clearly packed a lot of FPV diving goodness into this quick (and quickly paced) flight.  He got all cinematic on us when he made the most of the quiet Tulsa city center, showing off some pretty nice climbs and dives along the outer edges of these skyscrapers (one of these is the Bok Tower, which is said to be a replica of the World Trade Center in New York City and was designed by its same architect). This talented pilot, also on the Gemfam Hobby team, was added to our March 2020 FPV Pilots to Watch list in recognition of this sweet flight.

Diving Russia's Lakhta Center at Night


462 Meters of Diving


Take an epic nighttime first person view (FPV) drone dive down Europe's tallest skyscraper, compliments of talented AirVuz contributor and FPV pilot Shamkhal_fpv.  The subject building is the Lakhta Center, which stands nearly half a kilometer (about 1.5k ft. or 460 m) above St. Petersburg, Russia.  Completed in 2018, it is, by a significant margin, the tallest building in Europe.  This video was picked by the AirVuz editorial staff for a spot on the FPV Pilots to Watch list in September of 2022.  

Diving Downtown Salt Lake City, Utah


Diving Downtown SLC


Using a spotter, first person view (FPV) pilot and AirVuz contributor coolguy.fpv used a racing quad to dive the skyscrapers of Salt Lake City, Utah.  The first "target" is the Wells Fargo Center; the 28 story tower is the city's tallest at 129 meters or just over 400 ft.  He also tackles the LDS Church Office Building, the 28 story offie tower was the city's tallest from 1973 to 1998.  Other featured "dives" include the 111 South Main Street Building, which was constructed in 2016 and is currently the city's third-tallest.

FPV Diving Miami Beach's Skyscraper


Welcome to Paradise (Miami) - Johnny FPV 2018


Top FPV pilot and drone racer JohnnyFPV, a regular on the Drone Racing League series programming, is the almost undisputed master of cinematic FPV flight; he also has the largest social media following of any FPV pilot. When those forces come together (like in this video)  it's a media pipe dream.  Watch this footage as he cruises the beaches of Miami with his racing drone and dives high rises that line the beach, chases yachts out on the water, and finds that coastal flow in this golden hour paradise.
