    Are there no altitude indicators to know if the drone is close to the ground?

    One important thing is not told in this video, it must be mentioned, for all who plan to start with this great hobby:
    All video from quadcopters (or drones) here is made with high definition cameras, but it is not quality which you see in googles!
    This video was filmed to SD card and later retrieved, not sent to googles to see immediately.
    In addition to HD camera (gopro, mobius..) quadcopter has small analog video camera connected to transmitter, which send analog video signal to receiver in googles (fat shark googles in this case).
    Quality of that signal is comparable to VHS or analog security cameras, not even close to hd resolution.
    Also, when You look inside googles, it is not very wide picture, but comparable to sitting in mid of back rows of cinema.
    There are "drones" which can transmit live HD signal ( dji phantom 3), but that type of transmittion has some lag, and it is not fast enough for racing.

  20. Pierre Godeau on September 8, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    would be cool if you could shoot the other drones out of the air somehow too. 😃

  21. Datu432 on September 8, 2022 at 8:54 pm

  26. Necris on September 8, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    How do i invest in this ?

  27. D.L. McPherson on September 8, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    I would like to create a course in jamaica were we have a good deal of farm land. Good idea or no?

  28. Phrancis5 on September 8, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    As someone who is just getting into this hobby over the past few months I can say that FPV flying isn’t quite as easy as it looks. There’s a weird disconnect that’s not exactly like playing a flight sim. Start off with cheap toy-grade quadcopters and line of sight flying. You’re also gonna break a lot of propellers and solder connections along the way, but it really is exhilarating – like being a fast bird that sounds like a flying weed wacker….

  29. Mysterian on September 8, 2022 at 9:07 pm

    0:31 Kim Jong Un is flying drones?:O

  30. Odin31b on September 8, 2022 at 9:09 pm

  34. Albert Lane on September 8, 2022 at 9:18 pm

    For anyone just getting into this hobby and wondering where to purchase racing drones – and their spares – Banggood offer a fantastic sellection on their website: http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-RC-Quadcopters-c-1848.html?p=JQ26191551677201504Z

  35. RexyFan on September 8, 2022 at 9:18 pm

    Man this is so awesome ! I only just bought my first drone yesterday and can say that to fly these things takes great skill and a hell of a lot of practise !!
    All these guys in this Comp are masters in my eyes !
    I hope to one day fly as well as them soon.
    Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

  36. Trumpey toes on September 8, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    drone racing could be better if the loops to go through we’re actually high up in the air somehow, then it would be like a computer game.

  37. Travis Movchan on September 8, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    anyone fly in North Dakota?? I need someone to race with

  38. All About Drones on September 8, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    People cannot believe how fast drone racing is growing. Channels like your can become very popular.

  39. SuperConductor on September 8, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    Yay CHARPU FPV is here.

  40. Dr.Emmanuel Hill on September 8, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    Very Highly good digital technology; The amazing and renewable use of advance technology

  41. JWKS2003 on September 8, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    I want to start drone racing. I have had a bit of experience with drones, I have a small $50 drone at home that I use inside.Which drone should I get to start racing?, Should I get FPV goggles? if so which FPV goggles should I get? thankyou

  42. 98snakeeater on September 8, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    Very cool

    Dude looks like he took a prop to the face lol

  43. pulsefrequency on September 8, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    great video go charpu

  44. OC_AirWolf on September 8, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    Great coverage on the growing sport. 😀

  45. E. Malkin on September 8, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    They never show what it actually looks like. They show the HD video from the gopros on the drones, but not the low quality jittery video that you actually see. Thing is, I want to know how good the quality actually gets with the best fatshark goggles and antennas etc, but it’s so hard to find that sort of footage.

  46. Zonk on September 8, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    How do they make the air gates? 

  47. BlueMountPicture s on September 8, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    Rly they fly a Race with a Inspire 😀

  48. kentzuh86 on September 8, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    This looks awesome, It is too bad that i will never be able to afford the tech, And i love flying in any shape it comes. I hope this will pick up to be a major sport in a few years, Will be my new favorite sport then to follow.

  49. Nemesis T-Type on September 8, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    Holy shit. This is the future of racing. Imagine a drone racing inside the Grand Canyon. Imagine viewers buying PPV so they could gain exclusive POV access to each drone.

  50. Evelyn Dai on September 8, 2022 at 9:33 pm
