FPV Drone Flying

One interest of mine (the theory of, not the actual doing of, yet) is first-person view (FPV) drone flying. I first heard about FPV Drone Flying from the Make magazine article Star Wars Pod Racing Using Drones where they likened it to flying speeder bikes through the forests on the moon of Endor.

My novel Drone Syndicate (working title) has FPV drone races. To get a feel of what these races are like, check out some of the following videos:

This one is great because it shows a drone flying with a car, and up to 55 mph. My favorite part is when the car and drone pass beneath an underpass (around 1:08) and the drone flying through the arm of an excavator (at 4:03).

This video is the best FPV footage from 2014, my favorite part is when the drone flies through a tunnel beneath a road (at 5:35).

Because everyone actually loves NASCAR because of the crashes, here’s a compilation of FPV race crashes:

And one more, FPV racing in a warehouse in Australia:
