    Great work on video mate

  2. Leroy Jenkins on August 17, 2020 at 10:13 am

    I must have one.

  3. frederikvr on August 17, 2020 at 10:13 am

    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?

    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!

  8. Brendan O'Mara on August 17, 2020 at 10:21 am

    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?

  9. Coennos on August 17, 2020 at 10:23 am

    Great again,like to see that jet …

  10. Alistair Ruane on August 17, 2020 at 10:24 am

    So cool.

  11. muzikmon2267 on August 17, 2020 at 10:24 am

    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..

  12. Rich H on August 17, 2020 at 10:26 am

    Need V R hand motion control. no joy sticks.

  13. Tom Spurlock on August 17, 2020 at 10:27 am

    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.

  14. Michael Carroll on August 17, 2020 at 10:27 am

    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 fpvโ€™s should steer me towards a camera drone?

  15. Lee Wattenbarger on August 17, 2020 at 10:28 am

    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.

    Captain Drunk! ๐Ÿ˜‚ love your videos keep it up! You are my go to guy when I make my decisions on purchasing drones.

  17. Sean C. on August 17, 2020 at 10:31 am

    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.

  18. Lo']['uZ on August 17, 2020 at 10:32 am

    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!

  19. droneflyireland on August 17, 2020 at 10:33 am

    I have always fly line of sight. But today I order the eachine E013 fpv beginners pack. I want to see what itโ€™s all about before I spend big and see will I like the fpv hobby, great video keep up the good work ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  20. fp free on August 17, 2020 at 10:34 am

    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.

  21. Mr Crowley and his drone on August 17, 2020 at 10:35 am

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

  22. Paul Deacon on August 17, 2020 at 10:37 am

    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!! ๐Ÿ˜

  23. tom kristoffersen on August 17, 2020 at 10:38 am

    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?:)

  24. Patrick Saraฤ‘en on August 17, 2020 at 10:39 am

    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.

  25. Canadian Drone Hub on August 17, 2020 at 10:41 am

    very nice flying and quad

  26. BIG DRONE FLYER77 R/C on August 17, 2020 at 10:43 am

    Great video capt.

  27. samnella9 on August 17, 2020 at 10:43 am

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

  28. Shane Barber. on August 17, 2020 at 10:43 am

    Zoom,zoom.very nice drone.you can hear and feel the power in it.thanks for sharing and God bless you sir๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘‹

  29. RICK HALBUR on August 17, 2020 at 10:47 am

    Thanks nice video

  30. Dizzy Fpv on August 17, 2020 at 10:49 am

    Haha does Steele know you featured his footage ๐Ÿ˜‚

  31. Rich K on August 17, 2020 at 10:49 am

    Just love fpv quads. Really bad at flying them and crash them frequently but so much fun.๐Ÿ˜ Can get expensive though as I constantly keep buying better equipment and quads.

  32. michael mowery on August 17, 2020 at 10:49 am

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

  33. Michael Szmania on August 17, 2020 at 10:50 am

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

  34. mosephina on August 17, 2020 at 10:50 am

    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?

  35. Mohammed Awad on August 17, 2020 at 10:52 am

    Hi Captain-Drone..and all Best Wishes&Happy Fly’s..May be u mention it..but Witch Race Drone is this? Soo nice flyer..is this Eachine Wizzard ? I need the same one..thnx by advance..good day ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. Tommy Sainthill on August 17, 2020 at 10:53 am

    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.๐Ÿ‘ Thanks for sharing. โœŒ ๐Ÿ‘

  37. Jules Castaneda on August 17, 2020 at 10:54 am

    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.

  38. Don Collins on August 17, 2020 at 10:56 am

    You always seem to post videos of things Iโ€™m researching? How are you checking my browser history???

  39. Tech 4x4 on August 17, 2020 at 10:57 am

    Great video. That did look like a lot of fun. For the sake of my wallet I need to stay away from these things. I already got too many hobbies going on.
    Enjoyed the overview though.

  40. KARMA9TV on August 17, 2020 at 11:00 am

    Should have known you’re Canadian, such a nice guy …

  41. BigG RC and Video on August 17, 2020 at 11:00 am

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

  42. Jesse Lopez Drones on August 17, 2020 at 11:01 am

    You should do a Traxxas Aton pretty impressive drone captain

  43. Asgard Studios on August 17, 2020 at 11:02 am

    Another denizen of the Valley ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. Bruno Brunetti on August 17, 2020 at 11:03 am

    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)??

  45. Joe Marianna on August 17, 2020 at 11:07 am

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

  46. mrgoodbye95 on August 17, 2020 at 11:08 am

    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!!

  47. Rich H on August 17, 2020 at 11:08 am

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

  48. Zangeef Fangsteen on August 17, 2020 at 11:08 am

    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.

  49. S B on August 17, 2020 at 11:10 am

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

  50. Rob the Wayward Woodworker on August 17, 2020 at 11:10 am

    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.
