FPV stands for First Person Video and it is the video feed from the camera on the drone that the pilot uses in their visor to control the aircraft. Depending on the quality of parts, it is usually grainy and filled with static. A number of our racers carry a second high def camera while they fly. These cameras capture the high def video feeds that we all enjoy and are mesmerized watching. I will post some of the FPV video here as well so you can see the difference between what the pilot sees to fly the craft vs what we like to watch.
