Flight of the Year // Trains, Bridges, Rapids, Mountains, Sunset, Gapping, Perching, Powerlooping

It’s all here. Thank you to FPV-Direct for sponsoring my trip to Reno, NV for the MultiGP National Championships. Check out their wares: http://fpv-direct.com

I recognize that this isn’t the most “flowy” video or anything, but all of the things were all in the same flight, so I wanted to show that off.

    …anyone else notice his license plate is California 6UWA662? no?

  2. TIF22 on December 9, 2021 at 11:37 am

    OOF have fun with the FAA and FRA

  3. Bill McDonald on December 9, 2021 at 11:37 am

    3:23 Heart in muh mouth. Every. Damn. Time. Frikkin’-A, Dude.

  4. TweakRacer on December 9, 2021 at 11:38 am

    Not just the "DJI"/camera drone morons ruining the hobby… it’s also crap like this and the old skool TBS shenanigans…. four and a half minutes of "entertainment" that no one is gonna remember or care about is not worth losing the R/C hobby over… sheesh

  5. Max H on December 9, 2021 at 11:39 am

    This is my all-time favorite FPV video.

  6. le flamant rose fpv on December 9, 2021 at 11:39 am

    a little money for the united states … i’m disgusted for you, but this video is so cool !, it’s awesome;) (and it’s okay to fly like that! nobody died that I know of !!! nobody is injured, I do not see where the problem is, unfortunately, they did not see the quality of the flight and piloting, and the non-dangerousness of this video .. it is pathetic .. because it is brilliant.) the laws in Europe are worse !. power limited to 25mw, have the drone in direct view! (as if we saw with the helmet on the head, see what the drone sees so it is much safer to be far from there or there may be people and come back checking that there is no one there , (dji have o see all!), it is less risky .. in my opinion) and they do not trust us whereas the accidents are not the professionals who make them, it is the Toy drones that do the most damage .. in short, thank you again for your videos! 🙂

    Definitely a cringing flight. Love you, man, but trains are off limits. Successful flight, but potentially catastrophic on the scale for which responsibility is unconscionable. Add to that what stupid people without your skill will attempt, and it nukes the fun from orbit.

  8. W A F L L on December 9, 2021 at 11:40 am

    An absolutely reckless use of a drone !!………but the best I’ve seen !!

  9. Enrico RE on December 9, 2021 at 11:40 am

    Loooooooooooooooooooove it!!!!!!!!!!!🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩

  10. Tripod Catz on December 9, 2021 at 11:40 am

    Oh just fuck you, Nurk FPV. I just bought a DJI drone, flew it over the roof of my house without crashing, and then just assumed I was the coolest person in the world at that point. Then I see this on Youtube. 🙁

  11. Jeffrey Willis on December 9, 2021 at 11:41 am

    CGI couldn’t do it better. Nice flying! You are the Blue Angles of drone flying!

  12. Tracy King on December 9, 2021 at 11:42 am

    Ok so be honest. Did you actually see that wire almost hit at 1:23-1:24?

  13. Graham Moses on December 9, 2021 at 11:44 am

    wow

  14. Jenson Hartmann on December 9, 2021 at 11:44 am

    I came across this video shortly after the date in the description. I recently discovered who Nurk is and just subscribed.

    I was today years old to learn Nurk was the pilot in the video that has been my favorite for years.

  15. Ron on December 9, 2021 at 11:45 am

    The brown streak

  16. LLH Flying-* on December 9, 2021 at 11:45 am

  19. Juan Cruz on December 9, 2021 at 11:51 am

  20. Kakadu indenschuh on December 9, 2021 at 11:51 am

    3:21 was like: holy fkn what the……….

  21. Official Instrumentals W Hooks on December 9, 2021 at 11:51 am

    Dislikes were from people who can’t fly a drone like this 🤦‍♂️😂

  22. Jesse Smyser on December 9, 2021 at 11:54 am

    Top Gun Drone Pilot!

  23. WEEB on December 9, 2021 at 11:54 am

  26. Antonio Bricio Moreno on December 9, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    Wow! This guy is crazy pilot.

  27. RdL on December 9, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    how long before 1 moron straps a gun to one of those and use it

  28. klepetar on December 9, 2021 at 12:02 pm

    big respect to the operator..

  29. NURK FPV on December 9, 2021 at 12:02 pm

    Welcome everyone from the Droners episode. Thanks for checking out the flight and definitely subscribe to the channel for more crazy fpv stuff.

  30. Noobz Threefortyseven on December 9, 2021 at 12:03 pm

    That was fucking amazing.

  31. SpamFly on December 9, 2021 at 12:04 pm

    This is amazing! Probably the best bit of drone flying I’ve ever seen, really impressive!

  32. Jay Chaudhari on December 9, 2021 at 12:05 pm

    He almost crashed on the train

  33. Wipeout FPV on December 9, 2021 at 12:06 pm

    Great seeing the Algorithm show me this again. The video that made me want to buy a quad!

  34. Blah Blah on December 9, 2021 at 12:06 pm

    What kv motor did you use?

  35. Bill Feng on December 9, 2021 at 12:07 pm

    Imagine drone racers serving in the military as a recon unit.

  36. Greg Pless on December 9, 2021 at 12:08 pm

    Nurk! Is this the one? The one that you got tagged for. I’ve heard tell of it’s awesomeness, but figured you had to take it down. So glad it’s still up! You paid for it after all! Sweet jeezus!

  37. Sean Grimes on December 9, 2021 at 12:08 pm

    Nice! And you added "Train From Washington" by one of my favorite artist. Gil Scott-Heron (R.I.P.)

  38. Angus Estcourt on December 9, 2021 at 12:09 pm

    that is incredible! impressed from the U.K.

  39. Brandon on December 9, 2021 at 12:09 pm

    Every year I come back to see this video that by chance stumbled onto my recommendations and every year I have come back to see this form of art. 👍👏

  40. MrFourthhorsemen on December 9, 2021 at 12:09 pm

    Why have you put dji air unit in the partlist? This flight was on analog vtx system for sure.

  41. Bill McDonald on December 9, 2021 at 12:13 pm

    This is on my "Flyin’ Tunes" playlist. I get buzzed and buzz around my little digs, listening to good tunes. I’m gonna post a viddie later showing three years worth of progress with the one model type of drone that I’ve flown that whole time, and I just got in the can my flight I’m using for it – I even managed to catch that ‘heart in mouth’ on my monitor. Should work as I’m hoping.

    The upshot is that I only got the damn drone working correctly about a week ago, and finally completed a correct tuning in BetaFlight, version 4.2.9, thanks to upgrading my BLHeli_S to 16.73 so’s I could get RPM filtering. So, I spent three years training my thumbs to fly something that handled like a power drill, only to find out it was a crappy tune all along. Well, that and the company that makes my little drone builds ’em up totally wrong, as I have discovered – but that’s another story for another thread. . .

    At any rate, just gotta chime at ya once more to tell ya I’m a big fan who gets real inspiration from your many great viddies. Keep flyin’!

  42. Jack Bisson on December 9, 2021 at 12:15 pm

    Still the best FPV video out here. It will go down in history as the video that got camera drone flyers to fly FPV.

  43. the johnjosh on December 9, 2021 at 12:15 pm

    This video is what got me in to FPV 4 years ago

  44. SPUPRR on December 9, 2021 at 12:20 pm

    This would be so epic in Side by side 180 or 360 recording .

  45. Kurtis Kaskowski on December 9, 2021 at 12:20 pm

    Gay

  46. Trains & Machinery LDEGM Trainspotter on December 9, 2021 at 12:22 pm

    Amazing drone video! Mega Thumbs Up 🚂🚂🚂🚂🚁😎👍👍👍

  47. Mothy on December 9, 2021 at 12:22 pm

    I wonder if Nurk ever tracked down the conductor of that train that closes the window abruptly. He should know he’s famous!

  48. Johnny Party on December 9, 2021 at 12:22 pm

    Wheres this shot at?

  49. Aki MAKUSA on December 9, 2021 at 12:26 pm
