What is FPV?

FPV means First Person View and refers to the perspective or point of view when flying a FPV freestyle or a racing drone (quadcopter). Pilots use goggles to receive a live video feed, transmitted from the drone's camera which also translates into a 'flying from the cockpit' feeling.

As a broader term, FPV is an awesome fast-paced hobby, allowing you to fly drones (quads), planes, wings using a radio transmitter and enjoying the out of body experience through the first person view camera.

Have a look at this video to get an idea, but don't let my poor flying skills fool you and definitely checkout some of these excellent, excellent pilots:

Why fly FPV and who is this for?

Cause it's fun! And it's for everyone! No, seriously! FPV is fun and can be enjoyed by people of all ages. There are all sorts of drones - from the most timid micros to the fastest beasts that punch a whole in the sky™ (Stew).

Where does FPVTIPS fit in?

FPVTIPS wants to be there when you need information. The maybe one slight downside of the hobby is that it could seem a bit intimidating at first. Don't worry though, it's not that hard and no, you don't need to know all the stuff.

It would be nice to have a place to search for beginner friendly information. It would also be nice to find easily the exact answers to your questions. Enter, FPVTIPS!

Hi, I'm Georgi

I'm a web developer. You can find me on twitter, github, twitch and linkedin.

I write code, solve problems and sometimes stream on twitch. I love flying FPV drones, 3D printing, contributing to open source, and working on FPVTIPS.

I also maintain a blog where I write about life, goals, software and flying FPV drones.

So, let's fly together!
