Whats an FPC drone?
Was the video sped up?
Can anyone own these? If so, whats the brand and model?
Seems like this would be the drone to buy.
FPV drone ( First person View ) The drone carry's two camera's. One HD for the footage you see above. Then one that goes back to my VR goggles that I
wear. When I fly, I see real time off the nose of it. Without that perspective, it would be impossible to fly like that.
This particular drone of mine goes 75 - 80 mph. What you see is real time how fast it fly's.
You must register yourself, and the drone with the FAA.
I built this from scratch. From soldering the wires to the flight controller, to the ESC's, to motors. Configuring the receiver and setting my ranges.
Installing the VTX, and RX. Mounting and tweaking the FPV cam and OSD (on screen display) and then 3d printing my GoPro mount to fit in with the drone
frame. Its all done by me. Lots of online reading and YouTube tutorials. After its built, the tuning takes place.
This drone if I were to replace it would cost around 500 bucks give or take ( GoPro included ) and about 4 hours of my time just to build it. Then
another couple hours to fly , test, and tune.
The radio to fly it with is another 120 bucks and the goggles are over 300.
Its a fun hobby, but it takes a bit to get it off the ground "monetarily " One wrong move usually equals a hundred bucks in repairs or more. Its the
risk we take!
