FPV Racing Drones in the Rain (08.28.2017)

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.
This video represents my FPV pilot Progress so far.

Similar to full size air racing 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 or monitor 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 $50 to $500, with the more expensive goggles offering more and better features. Some of these features include a wide field of view (FOV), receiver diversity, head tracking, multiple frequency settings, and DVR (digital video recorder) recording functionality.

While the pilot always requires goggles, some drone racing organizations insist they should also be used among spectators alike by simply switching the frequency to the channel of the racer you want to watch.

Any drone could be used to race, however competitive FPV racing leagues require drones to meet certain standards. The Drone Racing League (DRL) makes all of the drones used in its events in house; pilots are supplied with drones, backup drones, and parts by the league itself, not independently.

In contrast MultiGP, defines community produced specifications and allows participants to supply their own drones increasing competitiveness and innovation. For competition, aircraft are typically separated into classes, separating winged craft from rotorcraft and also categorizing by size and power.

    Everything is wet in Florida. I wish it would rain in Los Angeles for once in a lifetime. The drought killed all the insects, you don’t even hear crickets at night anywhere here in California.

    But i’m glad something is alive & flying here in California……yep only Drones !!! Everything else has dried up and died. Thanks for showing us water/rain & a very cool sopping wet video of you flying your Drone. I almost forgot what water/rain looks like.

    I like the multi-colored drone LED’s, different like the Joker. But where is the Bat Man ???

    Nice to see ya and glad you are okay. I survived Harvey and my house/cars are okay. I still need to climb up onto the roof to check it though but I think it is okay. Tree fell on a neighbors house but didn’t do much damage. Little dent in the roof is all. I was thankful for that as well as not having any of my trees fall. It was really scary though – especially when the house rattled… Also watching the radar as the eye kept getting closer and closer…
