#QuadGoals: Yubeta.Blv FPV

When it comes to chase footage of FPV quads and vehicles, Jake Yubeta (aka Yubeta.Blv FPV) is one of the best. He checks in with us for this week’s #QuadGoals feature to talk about his latest build that he’s been chasing some awesome trucks with.

“This is one of a couple Gordo builds that I’ve been cycling through for the end of 2018. It works great for the task of chasing motorsports, carrying lots of speed and minimizing drag surfaces with its centralized mass. Higher battery voltage has really helped get the speed, consistency and flight times a little better, though battery is still the limiting factor for most projects.  When it comes to straight up freestyle flight characteristics I tend to prefer top mount batteries but I find that the point and shoot nature/flight dynamic afforded by this style frame makes getting reliable and repeatable footage a snap. The durability provided by the thick arms and comprehensive 3d print package make it one of my favorite grab and go video quads!”

#QuadGoals: JonhyO Tapadas

This week, we feature JonhyO Tapadas, who tells us about his quad that he used to chase the awesome cars in the video below:

“The combination of the smoothness of the Ethix ltd Mr Steele with 1700kv and the quality of the stack of Hobbywing F4 G2, make this my favorite setup for cinematography captured with a mini drone. With the autonomy of 6s greatly increases flight time, providing more opportunities to capture better moments. The ImpulseRc Reverb has always been a frame that brought me a lot of comfort on the flight and has helped a lot in bringing big shots home. When I ‘sit on the pilot’s seat’ the world around me becomes a real amusement park, looking for the craziest spots and the most spectacular moments. Looking forward to develop more my flight and to bring more cool stories to the community.”

#QuadGoals: airblastr

Jonny Durst, known in the drone world as airblastr, is this week’s #QuadGoals featured pilot. Previously seen on “Behind the Goggles,” Jonny takes us behind the scenes on one of his latest epic videos, as well as the quad he used to film it:

“VASTR is the result of an amazing opportunity I had to work with the guys at GoPro to create stunning images of the landscape in British Columbia. We flew around in helicopters for two days exploring remote areas, stopping to take in the sights and sounds. Flying my quadcopter in areas like this was a dream come true.  I kept the flying simple in order to allow the viewer to really take in the views. My favorite moment was flying through the glacier field and the narrow crevasse. It’s moments like that you really have to know and trust your equipment and I had full confidence in my gear.  In the end it was an epic adventure and one I will never forget! Thank you all for the support!” – Jonny “Airblastr” Durst

#QuadGoals: VerJan FPV

This week’s #QuadGoals pilot debuted a new video just for this special occasion. VerJan FPV flew around BASE jumpers with his quad, and the footage he captured is unreal. We’ll let him explain more about the video and about the quad he used to film it:
“I have always been drawn to flight. I have and still fly fixed wing, 3d heli (albeit poorly) and a lot of the toys however, FPV has become my new addiction.
I started flying the MB Epic 262 frame several months ago and absolutely fell in love with it. Most of my flights are between 1 and 2 miles away and can be a couple thousand feet above or below my starting elevation while still maintaining a low altitude relative to the ground. I have just rounded my first year in FPV and my favorite part is long range flight. The newly concocted/released MB Epic Cinematic 7 is now my go to for distance and smooth HD video.
A few months ago I was contacted by a guy (Mike Zurek) with a different hobby, B.A.S.E. jumping! B.A.S.E.(Building Antennae Span Earth) jumping is something that I knew about but had never been around. Mike contacted me because he had seen some of the videos that I had put out in the past and some of them were in places that he had jumped before. It took us a couple months of waiting and planning but we finally met up. Over the span of two weeks I recorded around 400 gigabytes of video and over 100 B.A.S.E jumps. This will be the first of many videos I am releasing to showcase this extreme sport and the wonderful, wild people I have met
along the way. Thanks all! Do Good!”
