What is FPV Racing

First Person View (FPV) is the Future of Drone Racing Technology.

Imagine being shrunk to the size of an ant and sitting in a virtual cockpit zipping through complex obstacles at up to 120 miles an hour and you will get an idea of this immersive mind-blowing experience.

FPV systems are comprised of a number elements, including an FPV drone mounted camera, video transmitter (vtx) and video receiver goggles, as well as antennae, ground receivers and connectors.

What's the difference between flying a drone and racing a quad with FPV?

It’s like the difference between playing hockey in the park and playing Quidditch at Hogwarts!

Once you’ve mastered the controls on your basic drone, you can progress to flying a Quadcopter wearing ‘First Person View’ goggles. The camera on the quad sends real-time images of its high-speed trajectory to the pilot - which will give you the sensation that you’re flying! It’s utterly exhilarating and totally addictive. Just ask our pilots!
