    I miss canada. Spent alot of time on the Rideau canal on a relatively quiet lake opinicon… that place is paradise in the summer

    I hear ya! My Ford Edge was quoted $880 by the Ford dealer to replace the backup camera. I bought one for $75 online and replace it myself! Nice report, I’ve often thought about a race quad, but I have 4 DJI quads already. I need to sell a couple.

    Cool video. I was thinking to get into FPV. Watching videos I get confused with binding, beta, pids, and so on.

  5. Yacov Bercovitz on September 2, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    Your vlog is one of my favourites… Your items are very divers and you know how to explain it… Thanks!

  6. tom kristoffersen on September 2, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    After watching this video and alot more i feel some "yeah, i would like to try that"…however, i feel there is so much to learn. I am completly new on this. What i want is a fpv race drone that includes everything you need. Is there anything out there that have it or do i have to buy all of the parts from different places?:)

  7. Paul Deacon on September 2, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    This is a really good video captain drone! I really, really want to get into flying racing drones but I bet it’s really hard!! 😁

  8. michael mowery on September 2, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    I love your channel real informative and the video you chose for you fpv example is one of my favorite videos

  9. Zyx Yuv on September 2, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    I would buy one if the image quality wasn’t so horrendously bad. I looked into all the cameras and there was no usable option, outside of mounting a Yi 4K+/etc. The low image quality literally upsets me too much to look at.

  10. Michael Carroll on September 2, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Trying to decide between an fpv and a camera drone to help find RC planes that go missing in the weeds/woods around my flying field. Do you think the speed and lack of easy hover of the fpv’s should steer me towards a camera drone?

  11. Brendan O'Mara on September 2, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Great story! I may just have to try one! How do you feel about the short flying times? Is that scary after flying other drones with 10+ mins of flying time? I’m always afraid I’ll loose it from running out of juice! Also – did you build this from a kit or purchase it built?

  12. Eva Guerin on September 2, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Thanks for this great review! Very good!

  13. Asgard Studios on September 2, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    Another denizen of the Valley 🙂

  14. Cooper Bee on September 2, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    Cool video where in Canada are you? Im in Canada

  15. Bruno Brunetti on September 2, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    Nice video, but if all your getting is 2 football fields and 3 min of battery, I think dji is a better choice for me. Btw, what does that build cost (gogggles, bird and GoPro …all in)??

  16. Dean Boland on September 2, 2022 at 8:52 pm

    Great work on video mate

  17. samnella9 on September 2, 2022 at 8:53 pm

    Hey Captain – any suggestions for a first time racing drone, a transmitter, and googles?. Or do you have videos already addressing this? Thanks!

  18. {JoF} Venom on September 2, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    This is by far the best video tutorial that covers everything basic on this theme.
    SUPERB VIDEO, instant Subscription, keep more tutorials and basic stuff coming. Cheers.

  19. Michael Szmania on September 2, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    Thank you, glad to know there is something besides camera drones.

  20. Rich H on September 2, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    Yes1 Need cockpit views and laser targeting weapons to dog fight using VR. Future wars will require this skill set.

  21. Rich H on September 2, 2022 at 8:59 pm

    Need V R hand motion control. no joy sticks.

  22. fp free on September 2, 2022 at 9:00 pm

    May wanna consider strapping the battery down before plugging in to minimise movement while the gyros calibrate, also you’re not hangin onto it if it goes rogue. FPV4LIFE. Enjoy.

  23. mrgoodbye95 on September 2, 2022 at 9:04 pm

    Nice job man. Rare to see a camera drone channel supporting the fpv culture as well. I like the fact that you explain very basic things in most of your videos, so every audience can keep in touch with what you saying. I would like to see in a future video the exact experience an fpv pilot gets by a POV sample . Many starters get dissapointed when they meet the analog image(pixel lines. signal cuts ,etc.) ,as they are used to digital HD(which has a delayed signal ofc but the image is pretty solid and clear.). Another great fact is that fpv drones are completely tunable and customizable to your preferencies, sso if you want to change your camera or antenna you dont have to change anything else. You know, things that will make people be more selective between building an fpv drone or buying a camera drone. Everyone is excited just to pilot a drone without even touching one yet. So i think it would guide some people in a nice way. Thank for your videos man . Have fun piloting!!

  24. Until the Moon on September 2, 2022 at 9:04 pm

    How much did you pay for the drone and goggles? I have a Phantom SE and a mavic air. I am thinking about getting into race drone f ok r the sheer thrill of it. Any recommendations appreciated. Thanks!

  25. Alex Dalton on September 2, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    Yaaaaaaaaaas love my emax hawk 5 running butterflight try lowering your stick input rates man what do you like better fast flight or acrobatic (freestyle)?

  26. Coennos on September 2, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    Great again,like to see that jet …

  27. Rob the Wayward Woodworker on September 2, 2022 at 9:10 pm

    I am curious if the FPV drones are home made or if they come complete. And how do they compare in price to something like the DJI Phantom 4? Thanks and it’s always nice to see a YouTuber from Canada! Cheers.

  28. muzikmon2267 on September 2, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    It makes me dizzy seriously dizzy just watching fpv on YouTube . I can’t watch the whole video I have to keep looking way or I physically get sick.. something wrong with my brain LOL..

    flying those fpv racing drones is very dangerous and only practical in wide open areas.. which is not going to happen near the city.. you have to fly way high in the air.. those things could kill someone how heavy they are if you lose control..

    near the city there’s always people you’re never alone. Even in a football there’s always someone or something going on..

    Also those goggles cost a lot of money..

  29. Jesse Lopez Drones on September 2, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    You should do a Traxxas Aton pretty impressive drone captain

  30. Iris on September 2, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    I want to learn FPV, but I don’t have the tools to build my own one and I also know nothing about FPV drones. Do you know any good prebuild drone kit that has a controller, drone and goggles inside and that can carry an action camera? I’m using an Osmo Action.
    I’m not searching for a cheap beginners drone, I want to start with a good one , my budget is around 350 euro.
    Can you pls help me?

  31. BIG DRONE FLYER77 R/C on September 2, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    Great video capt.

  32. Mohammed Awad on September 2, 2022 at 9:12 pm

  33. BigG UAV on September 2, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    Great video. Liked it a lot, thanks. .;)

  34. my drone life on September 2, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    Captain drone have you ever done a review of the m-43 power eye drone

  35. Alistair Ruane on September 2, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    So cool.

  36. Canadian Drone Hub on September 2, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    very nice flying and quad

  37. Scott B on September 2, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    I think I would be sitting in the car with the heat on flying that thing.

  38. Tommy Sainthill on September 2, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    I know cold, buddy its like 3 or 4 here last 6 mornings. No way to live here for this time of year. That was way too cool (pardon the pun) I will definitely check out FPV Racing for sure.👍 Thanks for sharing. ✌ 👍

  39. Luis Pablo Lee on September 2, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    HI Captain! I am into DJI drones but wanted to buy a racing drone, which one is the best? There is so much information around, but apparently no one is a clear winner n this field!

  40. Dizzy Fpv on September 2, 2022 at 9:19 pm

    Haha does Steele know you featured his footage 😂

  41. MrCrowley and his drone on September 2, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    A good quality film. Hope all is well. Stay warm

  42. mosephina on September 2, 2022 at 9:20 pm

    Yo, Captain…have you considered the DJI FPV system? Supposedly, it increases range dramatically, and, being digital, it has a higher quality video feed to the goggles, but the system is $1K more or less.

    Do you have any thoughts on that system?

  43. Lost Soul on September 2, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    Just love fpv quads. Really bad at flying them and crash them frequently but so much fun.😁 Can get expensive though as I constantly keep buying better equipment and quads.

  44. Jules Castaneda on September 2, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    This video was the one that got me to try FPV drones. I’m totally hooked, I am not great at flying acro mode yet. Thank you Captain Drone for introducing me to this hobby.

  45. Lee Wattenbarger on September 2, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    I’ve been enjoying your Vids for a while as I try and decide which drone would be best to document my boat travels. I appreciate your knowledge and the production skills evident in all your vids-Thanks for putting out all this useful and interesting content. I’ve noticed you are frequently hampered my cold hands and seem to cut short your filming occasionally when your hands get too cold. I used to have the same issue when filming my kids Lacrosse games in the early spring and finally resorted to the single use packaged hand warmers. I found it helpful to keep an activated warmer in each jacket pocket. However the operating temperature is fairly low, so I needed at least 5 seconds or so to begin to feel the warmth. Also, back in the 1950s, my Dad got my brother and I a couple of "Jon-E" hand warmers which ran on lighter fluid that heated a catalytic element. Those were extremely warm and could not be held in a bare hand without the protective fabric pouch. There’s a new, and I assume improved, model currently sold under the "Zippo" brand which I have not used. You probably know all or much of this, but like me you may need to hear about several times before trying it.

  46. Don Collins on September 2, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    You always seem to post videos of things I’m researching? How are you checking my browser history???

  47. Leroy Jenkins on September 2, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    I must have one.

  48. Devious RedNeck on September 2, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    Captain Drunk! 😂 love your videos keep it up! You are my go to guy when I make my decisions on purchasing drones.

  49. Shane Barber. on September 2, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    Zoom,zoom.very nice drone.you can hear and feel the power in it.thanks for sharing and God bless you sir👍👋

  50. Sean C. on September 2, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    Hey I have some experience with FPV drones and have been considering spending more time with them. What bind and fly quads do you recommend? I build two about four years ago but don’t have the interest now.
