The Next Evolution In Cinematic Drones - FPV

Landon Cramer

This is a film that I made simply for practice, and because a lot of people were asking for a compilation of my FPV shots that I haven’t uploaded. I am still relatively new at flying FPV quads (I have been flying for about 8 months), and have a lot to learn but I thought it would be interesting to share. I didn’t think I would be uploading this one, but it started coming together so I decided to finish it and make it worth watching. Enjoy!

Oh also, FPV drones have been around for quite a long time, even longer than DJI has been making consumer drones. in the video I was referring to their use as a tool for capturing cinematic video being relatively new. (i.e. the past couple of years by pilots like Johnny FPV and others).

Feel free to ask me any questions and follow me on Instagram!

The people that personally inspired me to get into FPV and helped answer some questions of mine:
-JohnnyFPV (who doesn’t need an introduction at this point)
-Nicolas Gaillard

Go check them out for some awesome FPV stuff!

I’m super stoked to continue making content with FPV in the future!

  1. That's what I want…a DJI drone that is fast and acrobatic, with the option to fly it like a normal gps drone(with stabilization and return to home) with 30 minute battery life and in a package for less than 1000 U.S. dollars. I know this is not possible right now, but I think it will be within the next decade.

  2. Стиль управления во многом зависит от наличия $. Если нет денег на покупку нового дрона, то рисковать при пилотировании будешь гораздо меньше.
