    whytf did you put so much bullshit on the screen

  4. MrDragonfyr on February 28, 2020 at 2:59 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

  5. Cherry Poppins on February 28, 2020 at 3:00 am

    this was AWESOME

  6. Sascha Wissenbach on February 28, 2020 at 3:00 am

    Crazy, remindes me of the old Playstation game Wipeout

  7. Daisy Duckface on February 28, 2020 at 3:00 am

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

  8. Drone No Limit on February 28, 2020 at 3:01 am

    Amazing!

  9. crypto currbit on February 28, 2020 at 3:01 am

    Awesome

  10. Paulo Lameiras on February 28, 2020 at 3:02 am

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

  11. Johnny5 on February 28, 2020 at 3:05 am

    looks like fun

  12. Challenger on February 28, 2020 at 3:05 am

    What the heck? I’ve never even heard of this. Can someone tell me more about it?

  13. Song Li on February 28, 2020 at 3:05 am

    just curious ,which software are used editing this subtitles ,looks very nice!

  14. PrimiusLovin on February 28, 2020 at 3:07 am

    Haha, just like playing Wipeout antigravity racing games on PlayStation… so cool!!

  15. alford35 on February 28, 2020 at 3:08 am

    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!!!

  16. kdwaynec on February 28, 2020 at 3:08 am

    Ho Lee Fuk! Wi Tu Lo!

  17. Arizona Tallent on February 28, 2020 at 3:09 am

    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. . .

  18. Forsaken Nebuchadnezzar on February 28, 2020 at 3:10 am

    noob

  19. playmatee1 on February 28, 2020 at 3:10 am

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

  20. Adapt FPV on February 28, 2020 at 3:11 am

    The HUD/OSD ruins it

  21. CombraStudios on February 28, 2020 at 3:11 am

    Is the HUD what pilot sees or it’s just added there for the spectators?

  22. Andrew Sramek on February 28, 2020 at 3:13 am

    This is stupid. This is the worst drp

  23. Lumibear on February 28, 2020 at 3:15 am

    Hahaha, I see what you did there, yes, it is a bit Wip3out IRL isn’t it?

  24. tastyfpv on February 28, 2020 at 3:15 am

    They’re going way too slow.

  25. Darth Vader on February 28, 2020 at 3:15 am

    Holy shit, the future has arrived!!!

  26. HOrtiz on February 28, 2020 at 3:22 am

    this is the best I’ve seen, you are a crack, congratulations

  27. AiTeee SNS on February 28, 2020 at 3:22 am

    What is this shit? Is this a kind of joke? I was a faster than this pilot in muy first 3 months.

  28. TapPineapple on February 28, 2020 at 3:22 am

    I just got triggered when I saw the speed boost!

  29. PBJ on February 28, 2020 at 3:24 am

    This would have been way better without all the extra bullshit "points" and HUD added in post.

  30. KRONiX FPV on February 28, 2020 at 3:25 am

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

  31. Mel Sunday on February 28, 2020 at 3:26 am

  32. Quarrel on February 28, 2020 at 3:26 am

    the crap they added in post ruined an other wise great video.

  33. 0 To 400 Feet on February 28, 2020 at 3:29 am

  34. FlightEvolution on February 28, 2020 at 3:33 am

  37. Keewee Rider on February 28, 2020 at 3:35 am

  43. Kira on February 28, 2020 at 3:43 am

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

  44. The Great Wolf HD on February 28, 2020 at 3:43 am

    666 like plz

  45. David Miller on February 28, 2020 at 3:44 am

    A totally false impression of FPV.

  46. 825 Studios on February 28, 2020 at 3:45 am

    That was awesome!!! Wish Karma would stay around.

  47. Alex Dalton on February 28, 2020 at 3:45 am

    That was turtle slow

  48. Nils Brinkmann on February 28, 2020 at 3:47 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. 😉

  49. Marc Frank on February 28, 2020 at 3:48 am

    funny how slow they were

  50. Thijsvos Vos on February 28, 2020 at 3:49 am
