FPV Drone Workshop
FPV Drone Workshops
FPV stands for "First Person View", which the FPV drone has a camera and the pilot wears a goggle, seeing what the drone is seeing as it flies. Hence, it is as if the pilot is sitting in the cockpit of the drone, piloting it as it flies through obstacles while the pilot is stationed with the radio controller on the ground. This is exactly how drone racers fly.
"FPV is an out-of-body experience!"
FPV vs VLOS
FPV drone piloting is a totally different level of skill set compared to VLOS (visual line of sight) piloting. You don't need to follow the drone to keep it in your view, because you "eyes" are already on the drone. You don't need to figure out the orientation of the drone, because you are always looking at the front where the drone is facing.
However, you will need to learn to fly and make judgement only by observing the first person video feed in the goggles, and have a sense of the space, even when your eyes don't see them.
FPV vs DJI
FPV pilots fly in "Acro mode", which unlike DJI drones, there is no altitude-hold function, nor stabilisation. There is also no ground sensors, no GPS, no return-to-home function, which means it replies a lot on the pilot's skills, experience, and judgement for good and safe piloting.
On the other hand, without these restrictive (but safe) features, FPV is more agile and acrobatic, allowing it to capture videos footages that are impossible for other drones or cameras.
1. FPV camera: to capture video images
2. VTX: video transmitter
3. RX: radio receiver
4. FC: flight controller
5. Motors: to be attached with propellers
6. Lipo: lithium polymer battery
5. Goggles: to receive video signal
6. TX: radio transmitter (radio controller)
