This article is about racing drones and racing quadcopters, which are flown with the help of goggles from the first-person-view (FPV). On these pages you will find everything you need to get started in this fantastic hobby. Here you will learn how to get started, what to buy, what goes together and how to take the first steps.
Firstly, racing drones only have a lot in common with the well-known camera drones such as DJI (Phantom, Mavic Pro or Air) at first glance. Racing quadcopters are much more agile and faster than a static camera drone (camera drones are for beginners 😂). But the racing drone is also totally dependent on the pilot: No GPS keeps the device on the spot and when the pilot lets go of the control sticks, it usually just goes downhill with the thing.
But the FPV goggles and the associated perspective together with the performance (which is achieved by absolutely uncompromising performance components such as high-KV brushless motors, ESCs, flight controllers and high-discharge LiPos) make for a unique experience.
A little taste test? Here first FPV:
And then again LOS (Line Of Sight) without goggles – sound on!
OK! So here on FPVRacingDrone.de you get questions answered like:
- What do I need for my first FPV flight?
- What is the best way to start? (Simulator or directly with a quad?)
- What is the perfect entry-level drone?
- How expensive is FPV Racing?
- How can I earn money with FPV?
FPV racing is a bit challenging. There are also many stumbling blocks. But the pages here should help all beginners to get some of them out of the way.
And when you’ve done it, it opens up one of the coolest hobbies and experiences known to man. FPV Racer flying is awesome!
Have fun with FPVRacingDrone!
