#QuadGoals: ChileVuela

It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s time for another edition of #QuadGoals. Today’s featured pilot has been sharing his content on AirVuz for the past four years. And as you can tell by his handle, Matt Bardeen takes us on a journey through Chile with his videos. Here’s more from ChileVuela:

“My name’s Matt and I’m currently enjoying life in Talca, Chile. I’ve been flying FPV for around 6 years now, ever since I first saw FPV videos on YouTube while building a quadcopter for my job at a local university. I’ve always wanted to fly like a bird and this has been the closest (and safest) way I’ve found to achieve that. I enjoy freestyle, mountain diving, and long range work, but I really enjoy just getting out and flowing over the awesome landscapes that the Andes offer.

This is my current workhorse quad and it’s a really flexible setup. It’s got a Runcam Split 2 on board so I can remove the GoPro and mount for really long range missions, or keep it on for some beautiful cinematic videos. It’s not the fastest quad, but it’s light (313g with no GoPro or battery) and efficient, so I can get a good 12 minutes of flight out of it on medium size batteries. For longer range missions I can use bigger batteries and fly for over 20 minutes.”
