Imagine a firstpersonview video game where youre racing through the air and dodging obstacles.
Losing even onetenth of a second can cost you the race.
Now imagine that its not a video game.
This is the sumtotal experience of firstpersonview FPV drone racing.
Drone racers see all the action from their drones perspective as they weave through the air at upwards of 70 miles per hour.
And it happens in places that were previously physically impossible to navigate.
Drone racing can be a bit intimidating, but Im here to help.
Ive spent the past five years as an R/C flight enthusiast, and I founded the popular community and YouTube channel Flite Test in 2010.
More recently, my feature film, Rotor DR1, features a drone race inspired by our community before FPV was even a thing you can find it on Hulu here.
Through these endeavors, Ive had the pleasure of spending time with the worlds best FPV drone pilots.
Theyre all eager to help with advice for new pilots, so lets dive straight into the five most important things a beginning drone racer needs to know.
