First Person View (FPV) racing is a sport where participants attempt to build ridiculously fast agile drones to complete a set course in the minimum possible time. FPV is a system where pilots use cameras on the drone to navigate using an FPV monitor or specialized googles, just as if they are on the drone flying it. Earlier the races were held using RC planes but later drones became popular due to their higher agility, stability and maneuverability. Later mini-drones or smaller fpv racers became popular as they could navigate through tighter places and held up better in crashes. FPV racing is still in the process of taking off but soon it will become a very popular sport in the future with already thousands of people around the world into drone racing. Flying an fpv racer is an experience like no other.
More than the race times and completing the race course, what makes it the ultimate experience for me is the thrill you get when flying. More than races I like to fly my fpv racer
freestyle, simply trying to pull some of the craziest stunts I can in the air. Successfully pulling off a trick or skillful navigation leaves you with a satisfaction nothing else can provide. Seeing the flight path in real time and navigating the drone is what fpv racers are all about, Every time it gets tricky to navigate my fpv racer it’s always an adrenaline rush not knowing if I can keep from crashing. That rush
along with the immense feeling of satisfaction and pride has got me hooked to flying fpv racers. It is always a challenge and an opportunity to test my skills. There are freestyle drones as well as fpv racers for racing. Racing drones are capable of reaching speeds of over 100 MPH/160 KMPH and can accelerate from zero to maximum speed in less than 2 seconds. Also, it can rotate a full 360 degrees on any axis up to 3 or 4 times per second. FPV racers are smaller than other drones to make them easier to maneuver through small spaces and around obstacles. Also, they are much lighter usually made out of carbon fiber due to the material’s extremely lightweight and durable. Unlike normal drones, fpv racers have rotors which are controlled individually to ensure maximum agility.
FPV racing became popular due to the unique experience it offers the pilot. It is extremely immersive and requires constant attention as even a lapse so little as a part of a second can result in a crash. At some point in our lives, almost all of us have wished we could fly. Soaring high and admire the beauty while we glide across the land. FPV drones get us pretty close to that. Maybe it’s this sense of fulfillment that made them so popular or it’s the thrill in flying. Either way, it’s a grand experience and soon to be a high stakes sport.
