Wake Nation Chasin'

nurkfpv...

The opening thirty seconds of this piece are hilarious and all too relatable for any pilot who dares fly their quad over the water. NurkFPV gets a little too close to the wake and ends up in the water, but he survives another day of capturing epic FPV footage this time of the group that makes up Wake Nation Cincinnati. He’ll get up close and personal with the wake boarders as they are towed through an obstacle course. The flight earned him an AirVuz FPV Pilots to Watch nod in August of 2019.

2019 FUERTEVENTURA PWA GRAND SLAM TRAINING (FAST DRONE VISION)

Red—fpv...

Known for his epic, high energy flights, Red - FPV was at it again in this film; watch as he chases some of the world's fastest kite surfers in the world as they train for the annual PWA (Professional Windsurfers Association) Grand Slam, off the coast of Fuerteventura, one of Spain's Canary Islands. This talented drone pilot gives us a birds eye view on the speed, and agility and raw strength required by the surfer to harness the wind power and charge through the waves.

The man-made Flagler Memorial Island outside of Miami Beach, Florida (USA) was the perfect setting for FPV pilot Banner_drones to have a little fun with his friends from Vice Boat Club.  Watch as he flies both his cinewhoop and racing quad, chasing the water sports entertainment like the hot new electric Radinn jet/surf boards, Jet Skis, watertubing, and the revelers on the beach.  This January 2020 FPV Video of the Month winner always picks creative settings and that's why we returned him to the FPV Pilots to Watch list in April 2020.

We’ve seen a lot of crazy, extreme sports by drone, but this one may take the cake for being the most inventive. Shot by FPV pilot sandfpv, see a group of adventure seekers as they slingshot off of a sailboat behind a jet ski. It’s an interesting concept, where the folks involved don’t just slide down the “sling shot” line, they flip and jump off of it. We can’t think of a better way to capture these crazy antics than by mini quad.

FPV vs SURF - Chile

prisvanree...

With more than 6,000 kilometers (3728 miles) of Pacific Ocean shoreline, Chile is a popular destination for surfers around the world. Due to the cold in certain parts of the country, wetsuits, like the ones you’ll see in this drone video by prisvanrees, are needed for surfers to stay warm. In this killer FPV edit, the pilot takes us dangerously close to the waves, seemingly getting very close to losing his quad to the ocean. It’s a fun, exciting edit with some of the tightest shots a pilot can get while tracking surfers.

First-person-view pilot S.KWAD is sending it in this action sport, tracking video. He caught up with a local wake boarding crew to see if they’d be interested in being filmed by him. The ensuing footage was sure to make them happy with their decision. He’s done a fabulous job tracking the extreme athletes as they hit a variety of man-made jumps with their boards. S.KWAD said their were a few crashed, but none of them ruined the day’s shoot, inspiring him to try it again another day.

Banner_Drones clearly had a banner year in 2019, and they now have this 'fun-in-the-sun' gem from Miami as a sweet FPV souvenir.  Since nothing beats the view of that skyline *from the water* either, we're treated to plenty of dope cinematic shots of hangin' out on yachts, plunging into the ocean on water slides, and friends carrying friends while flyboarding.  But the real star is Banner_Drones flying around it all, and for that, he's been added to our Pilots to Watch list for January 2020.

If flying a racing quad over water was the first frontier in FPV, over-water flight while filming a wakeboarding must be the sixth or seventh.  And if there is anyone who can unlock the power of FPV drones to film an epic wakeboarding session, it's JohnnyFPV.  This video was shot on the waters of Lake Minnetonka, a large recreational lake just west of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Pilot Red—fpv's videos always seem to take it to the next level, location-wise. Take a look at this mix where he’ll take you literally through the water (several times, in fact), and up close and personal with jet skiers and waterpark enthusiasts alike. If you’re not impressed enough, he’ll even slow things down for you so you can really take in the wicked ride that is every flight in this FPV medley.

From the proximity, to the unqiue angles, ability to keep pace with the extreme athletes, and more it really is the only way to watch these sports. This watersports video by prisvanrees is no exception - let it rip, man!

FPV vs WINDSURFING - Chile

prisvanree...

We’ll get up close and personal with the waves in Chile as drone pilot presvanrees tails some surfers as they, in turn, take on the South Pacific Ocean's waves. The northern region of the country is known for attracting surfers from all over the world. Although the waves in central Chile are bigger, those northern waves are stronger and better suited for surfing. However, due to the wetsuit, we think this FPV session was flown along the coast of central or southern Chile where the waters are much colder.

NurkFPV has shown that he is not afraid of putting his FPV quads in harm's way.  It's no surprise then that he and his wakeboarder bud, Randy Kizer, took some freestyle risks in the filming of this crazy good drone video.  Flying a racing quad over water and allowing your buddy to chase you with a set of (sharp enough!) blades can be tricky biz.  Nonetheless, these guys manage to pull through the good fun with an action-packed FPV vid you just have to watch for yourself!

CINEMATIC FPV - Foil Sailing | MotionPilot

motionpilo...

Have you ever heard of foil sailing? Also known as Sailing hydrofoil, hydrofoil sailboat, or hydrosail, it is the art of maneuvering a sailboat with wing-like foils mounted under the hull. As the boat speeds up, the hydrofoils lift the hull up and out of the water, resulting in decreased drag and increased speed. See the technique at work in this cinematic FPV video by pilot motionpilot. He used Vector in this shoot, which he says is the world’s first hand motion controller for FPV drones.

While gimbal-stabilized camera drones such as the DJI Phantom and Mavic lines have revolutionized the world of sailing, these quadcopters aren't suited to high speed sailing.  Even if they are fast enough to keep up with fast-moving sailboats, they aren't able to get shots like what you will see in this remarkable video by top contributor and first person view (FPV) pilot SFPV.  He used a GoPro mounted to a racing quadcopter to film some seriously insane catamaran sailing action on San Francisco Bay.

Jetski vs FPV

Powered by enclosed "impellers", jet-skis can attain speeds of well over 100 km/hour (about 60 mph).  That makes them to fast to be filmed by stabilized aerial cinematography platforms, at least when they are cruising at or near their top-end speeds.  That's where first person view (FPV) drones come into play; when controlled by skilled pilots, these racing quads have no trouble keeping up with even the fastest jet-skis.  To see what we mean, check out this fantastic FPV video by AirVuz contributor and pilot ShaggyFPV.

Magic Wind

Daviz Fpv...

All drone pilots know that a strong wind can be your worst enemy. At the end of the day, drones are pretty small, lightweight objects that can’t take a ton of wind without knocking them off course. However, sometimes the subject you want to capture needs wind; for example, kitesurfers perform their best when the winds are moving the sails and rolling the waves just right. Daviz Fpv found the struggle was real while out chasing down these kitesurfer. Check out this video to see if he was able to get the shots through the striking winds.
