    Can someone explain to me what this is and where to go for more info and how expensive this is? Why in the world aren’t the large formats of racing using this is my biggest question?????? This is way more accurate and engaging than just flying around way off course and it actually keeps people honest which is a huge deal IMO!!!

  5. David Miller on September 14, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    A totally false impression of FPV.

  6. PD productions on September 14, 2021 at 11:31 pm

  7. Dave Merro on September 14, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Very interesting video, i was searching for raw fpv videos but this video with the visuals like in a video game is really creative and amazing!!

  8. Adapt FPV on September 14, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    The HUD/OSD ruins it

  9. Crypto Currbit on September 14, 2021 at 11:34 pm

  26. Drone War on September 14, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    We need a tv Channel for that in Germany.

  27. Arizona Tallent on September 14, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    Imagine doing this with the wireless VR goggles while being in a wind tunnel with a suit that relays your body movements over to the drone so you can control it with your body. . .

  28. shurikenz (pupper) on September 14, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Cool Editing

  29. Mel Sunday on September 14, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    dude this is super cool

  30. Kira on September 14, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Fun race footage, but I feel like the post production HUD and video-game like "score" really take away from the true FPV experience.

  31. Paulo Lameiras on September 14, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    It’s awesome but the huge hud kills the experience ro me.

  32. KRONiX MX on September 14, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    I need to upgrade to a gopro! Check out my stuff if you can 🙂 https://youtu.be/QoYDvCxKTcI

    Whipout.

  44. Donald Duck on September 15, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Drone racing video game (simulator) !!! With real physics… 😉

  45. Timur 56255 on September 15, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Finally, a HUD that isn’t just a cosmetic and actually shows what happens

  46. Sascha Wissenbach on September 15, 2021 at 12:21 am

    Crazy, remindes me of the old Playstation game Wipeout

  47. playmatee1 on September 15, 2021 at 12:22 am

    this is possible and multiplayer but only need a course ,can’t wait

  48. Nils Brinkmann on September 15, 2021 at 12:23 am

    I was looking forward to a drone racing video by gopro (most drone racers carry a gopro session on their quads when they want to capture great looking HD footage) but this heavily dissappointed me. I mean I get that drone racing isn’t for the mass market yet, but the HUD and especially the "power ups" (i mean, "turbo boost", really?) ruin all the true drone racing experience that this video could convey. The extremely dark track may look cool, but a nicely lit track outside in the woods or inside with some spectacular obstacles look much better in video.
    Drone racing is looking much more impressive, when the viewers get some perspective of the speed of the quads and size of the obstacles. In this video you can’t really see if the obstacles are 50 cm or 5 m in size. You can do better than that, gopro!

    PS: I’m also sure that this wasn’t a great lap from the pilot, as I’m sure he’s a lot more capable than this. Probably because he didn’t want to spend precious training time to fly with a gopro (that alters the way his ultra-light machine flies). A good pilot on a track that he got time to get used to can make the speed seem more unrealistic than this HUD. 😉

    Stick a pair of 180° VR cameras on each drone and let us watch is this in 180° VR. It’d be AMAZING! 🤩

  50. MrDragonfyr on September 15, 2021 at 12:24 am

    When you see GoPro you expect it to be a great video, but then you see the hud and it all goes to shit. Good flight though
