CASE STUDY

Can the everyday professional and freelancer videographer jump onboard the FPV wagon?

Being avid DJI-base drone users, the jump can be both nerve wrecking in exciting. This being said, the immersive experience with an FPV goggle can be a steep challenge to some.
Will the flight characteristic be the same as to what we are use too? NOPE.
Will the expensive builds be able to fund for themselves over the next couple of gigs? MAYBE.
How can I unleash the creativity of style that I yearn from after being stuck with drowsy slowmo cinematic aerial clips? WELCOME TO FLOW.
So many questions. Too many ideas.

CRITERIA OF BUILD

Every build should have three critical criteria:

1 Abide by regulations set by authorities.
Every country has it's own drone laws. Under a certain altitude, above a certain weight and size and not to mention the permits.
As drone laws differ from country to country let's try not to touch on things that we cannot control but on aspects of each build that will fall within the country's regulations and laws. Regulations such as weigh classes, frequency bands etc etc.


2 Safety, Safety, Safety.
PENDING TEXT

  • avoiding failsafe
  • telemetry and which telemetry is crucial
  • audio
  • GPS
  • propguards

3 Creativity. Flow.
The build should help with flow and not work against it. The correct choice of motors, propellers, PIDS, Gopro settings and dual cameras, 4k or 2.7k? Will 1080 be sufficient?

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
