Race Drones First Person

FPV drone racing (where FPV stands for first-person view or first person video) is a motorsport type where participants control “drones” (typically small radio-controlled aircraft or quadcopters), equipped with cameras while wearing head-mounted displays showing the live stream camera feed from the drones. The goal is to complete a set course as quickly as possible. Drone racing began as an amateur sport in Australia in late 2014

FPV (first person view) flying means that pilots only see what the drone sees. This is accomplished by live streaming footage from a camera mounted on the nose of the drone. The image is transmitted via radio waves (typically 2.4 GHz or 5.8 GHz frequency) to goggles worn by the pilot. The remote control, drone, and goggles are all connected via radio and must transmit with sufficient speed and reliability to allow effective control. This technology is very new and is constantly being improved. FPV goggles on the market range from to 0, with the more expensive goggles offering more and better features. Some of these features include a wide field of view (FOV), head tracking, multiple frequency settings, and DVR recording functionality .
