FPV Racing Drone

FPVRacingDrone.de – This is about Racing drones and Racing Quadrocopter which can be used with the help of a pair of goggles from the perspective of the self (Engl. First-Person-View = FPV) to be flown. On these pages, you will find everything you need to get started with this fantastic hobby. Here you will learn how to get started, what to buy, what fits together and how to take your first steps.

But first, it should be said: Racing drones only have a lot in common with the well-known comrade drones like DJI at first sight. (the Phantom or the Mavic Pro). Racing Quadrocopter is much more agile and faster than a static camera dome. (Comrade drones are for beginners ?). But the racing drone is also totally dependent on the pilot: No GPS keeps the device on the spot – when the pilot lets go of the joysticks it’s usually just downhill with the thing.

But this is ensured by the FPV goggles and the perspective associated with them together with the performance (which are equipped with absolutely uncompromising performance components like high-KV brushless motors, ESCs, FlightController, and High-Discharge LiPos be achieved) to a unique experience.

Small taste sample? First of all FPV:

And then again LOS (Line Of Sight) – Sound an!

aroused interest? 😉

OK! So here at FPVRacingDrone.de, you get questions answered like:

  • What do I need for my first FPV flight??
  • What’s the best way to start? (Simulator or directly with a quad?)
  • What is the perfect entry-level drone?
  • How expensive is FPV-Racing?

Have fun with FPVRacingDrone!

How to start with FPV Racing?

Two possibilities

Basically, there are two different approaches. The approach with small quadrocopters or the simulator.

A small list of the advantages and disadvantages of the two options:

Simulator

Advantages

  • Very inexpensive entry
  • You’re going to learn the “essentials”
  • Lower costs due to less material wear
  • When you buy something, you usually buy it right away. “the right thing” (e.g. the spark) without transition via intermediate products

Disadvantages

  • Artificial: no “real” flying experience
  • No experience with damage and repair in crashes
  • Nix for outdoors

Start with small Quads

Advantages

  • Just like flying
  • More fun
  • More representative – you can let your friends join in too
  • Experience with quadrocopters and their construction

Disadvantages

  • Expensive because you buy many models, which you will hardly need later on and you often have to repair them.
  • More time consuming (you don’t get flight experience as fast as in a simulator)

?? Start with small Quads

?? Simulator entry

When the first experiences are there and you have overcome your contact fears (whether on the simulator or with small toy drones) it’s time for the next step: A Rich race drone has to be made. But it’s best to have one that forgives a little and isn’t already broken at the first contact with something. After all, we’re not pros yet. You can read what’s suitable here:

The world’s smallest drone – 2×2 cm and EHD engines

The “Ioncraft” The “Ioncraft”, a mini-drone developed in California, weighs only 30 milligrams and measures just 2×2 cm. Unlike other mini-drones, it does not fly with the help of electric motors and rotors, but with the power of ions. Due to the built-in electrohydrodynamic engines, the “Ioncraft” accelerates by the collision of ions with neutral …
