How to Become an FPV Drone Racer

How to Become an FPV Drone Racer

FPV or First-Person View Drone Racing is a fast-paced sport where pilots race lightweight drones equipped with cameras. These cameras send a live feed back into the pilots’ head mounted displays, allowing them to see only what the drone sees, making the racing experience immersive and surreal. We met up with Shreyash Rathi, Siddharth K, and the reigning champion of the Indian Drone Racing League, Aaradhya Kulshrestha to learn how one can become a drone racer and what the future of drone racing is in India.

    I love drones and I also want to participate in the Indian DRL. But I think most of the parents in India will not take this seriously and might not pay for these ( as they usually think these are toys ) and what the society will say that his/her child still plays with toys….. This is the biggest reason…. What should some of us do who really love drones…😕

    "do stupid things" like what decide to fly your drone over a major airport like Gatwick

    Lots of commercial and humanitarian opportunities in the future, but lots of challenges too because of law makers and public hysteria. 
    The kid is right, though, and hope he succeeds.

    I’ve seen many "home made" features either on transmitters and drones itself which are, in my opinion, the spirit of this hobby.
    When money is lacking, ingenuity comes on the scene.
    I love these guys.

  21. DansTube.TV on March 24, 2020 at 4:31 am

    This is epic! I love the FPV community 🚁

  22. Rcbif on March 24, 2020 at 4:32 am

    Anyone else been flying FPV since before they were called "Drones"?
    Those were the good old days, homemade wooden frames, repurposed flight controllers….now the amount of choices is overwhelming.

  23. Flesh on March 24, 2020 at 4:33 am

    Didn’t know this was a thing.
    Also, this seems like old kind of good Vice content…

  24. DeepFriedHorror on March 24, 2020 at 4:33 am

    For anyone looking to get into drone fpv racing i would recommend the MJX Bugs 3 drone. It is a relatively cheap drone (£50) but it has more than enough power and is very tough. Trust me you will want to learn on a cheaper drone then upgrade once you have improved.

  25. AM Productions on March 24, 2020 at 4:34 am

    He’s a pincher, he’s probably been watching Ken Heron videos 😂

  26. Rion on March 24, 2020 at 4:40 am

    Why show this in India? American whites are far more advanced

  27. snurk agurk on March 24, 2020 at 4:41 am

  31. frederikvr_ on March 24, 2020 at 4:46 am

    I have a DJI Mavic Air at the moment, but I want to learn flying fpv drones,
    Are there any good prebuild fpv drone kits, with a drone, goggles and a controller that can carry an action camera (i’m using the osmo action)
    I don"t have the tools to build my own drone and I know nothing about fpv drones, so that why i’m searching for a good prebuild fpv drone.
    My budget is MAX. 500 euro, can maybe someone help me?

  32. Black turbine on March 24, 2020 at 4:46 am

    Step1. Get born in rich famly
    Step2. Act like fortune has nothing to do with it

  38. Sree Addala on March 24, 2020 at 4:49 am

  39. Jayden Lawson on March 24, 2020 at 4:50 am

    Evolution of a drone pilot: Flies Toy Drone ⏩ Gets something by DJI ⏩ Flies a friend’s Racing Drone ⏩ Builds own Racing Drone ⏩ Races FPV drone ⏩ Becomes FPV Freestyle Badass and never races again 😎

  40. Binny Lee on March 24, 2020 at 4:51 am

  41. LO FLI on March 24, 2020 at 4:51 am

    Awesome to see how people around the world have picked up FPV and taken off with it. I didn’t know about IDRL till now but I’ll be keeping my eye on it now.

    Pretty cool, I really enjoy seeing other folks from around the world enjoying FPV!

  46. TJ’s RC Garage on March 24, 2020 at 4:55 am

    Quick question:Is FPV legal in india after the new set of drone regulations?If yes a drone above 250g would need a license right and how much would it cost??

  47. Starr Fpv on March 24, 2020 at 4:55 am

    Who else would rip with these guys

  48. NOVUM on March 24, 2020 at 4:56 am

    Ппц, даже у индийцев, или кто они там, есть деньги на сборку дрона. Пойду дальше клеить самолёты из потолочки

  49. Sree Addala on March 24, 2020 at 4:57 am

    Arey stupids study is your main priority.
