Wondering who we picked as the FPV Pilots to Watch this week? (Nov 3, 2017)

(some pretty awesome ones, of course!)
Every week, we watch out for some drone pilots who’ve pushed their limits, created crazy edits, and even just enthusiastically supported their fellow pilots…and then, we wrap up their latest vids in a cool collection so we can show them off.

That’s what FPV friends are for 😀

Count on AirVuz for catching you up on the best in FPV Freestyle, Drone Racing, and Tiny Whoop, RC and Wing…you get the idea. 😎

DR1 Racing presents the DHL Champions Series, fueled by Mountain Dew

Not only will the Champions Series Finals fly the historic Isle Of Man, but it’s only fitting that they’ll do so 110 years after the very first Isle of Man TT race!

It’s drone racing at its best!  Fifteen drone pilots will battle in the backyard of the world’s most dangerous race, where they’ll risk everything as they dive off a cliff to grab victory from the ocean below!  Some of our very own Team AirVūz FPV pilots had the chops to compete in this amazing series. Good luck to NytfuryFPVJohnnyFPVFreybott, and SFPV!

The event airs on CBS on Saturday, November 4th, at 1:30pm EST.   Set your DVRs, or better yet, tune in and make an afternoon of it.  🏁

Who will have what it takes to bring home the victory?? Don’t miss it!!
