The aim of this video is to help you decide what is the most suitable fpv drone for your needs im going to show you which fpv drones i fly and explain the reasons behind my choices. You will get some valuable information, no matter if youre a beginner looking to get his first drone or if you are someone who has been flying fpv for a while now and you want to try out something new since im, a professional filmmaker. My number one priority is, of course cinematic fpv. Occasionally. I also do freestyle because i want to sharpen my flying skills and have fun, but i dont do fpv racing, so the drones that i use are split into four main categories. Those are cineboops 5 inch freestyle. Seven inch long range and cine lifters, so lets talk about pros and cons of each category, but before we dive into the details, i just wan na say thanks to the sponsor of this video, which is art list, i have been using their music licensing service for Two years now i do admit that sometimes it is a struggle to find the right song, but the searching features of art list make this process a lot easier and faster. My two favorite features are the list of featured videos where they show some of the best work of other filmmakers and you can see which songs they used and also the music collections are an awesome place to find good music and they are updated on a regular Basis link with a discount code and more info about the art list is below this video and now lets jump back to our tutorial and we are gon na dive into the first category, which is cineboops.

These are fpv drones that are specifically designed for safe precision. Flying around people and other valuable things that might take damage if you crash into them, the main purpose is making a good video, and i must say that slow precision flying is a lot of fun to do. In my opinion, a cineboop is a great beginner choice, because having prop guards will give you more confidence during proximity flying, you will be able to get those amazing close up shots without the fear of injuring or damaging your subject. However, there are a few cons. The biggest one is that a typical cineboop is easily affected by wind. Therefore, it is not suitable for flying in strong windy conditions, but the cinebooks that i own are kind of hybrid between a cinewoop and a racing drone. These are iflight protect 35 and iflight. Protect 25 pusher and they both have pretty similar flying characteristics because of the innovative prop guards design. They both fly much better than a typical cinewoop. However, they are still not able to perform acrobatic maneuvers as efficiently as a 5 inch freestyle quad does them protect 25. Pusher is a perfect choice for filming indoors because its smaller and it can easily squeeze through tiny gaps. Second, category is 5 inch. Freestyle drone – and this is by far my favorite drone to fly with it – has the perfect ratio between size, responsiveness and power. I use it for capturing fast, dynamic, cinematic shots.

You can easily perform maneuvers like dives flips rolls and flight time really depends on how aggressive you fly, but in general expect between four to six minutes with the gopro mounted. So once you master flying cineboop a five inch. Quad is the next logical step up and it is by far the most popular fpv drone out there, because its just so fun to fly. I have two nas goals. This one is the older version, the x frame. I have had it since september 2020 and after a lot of flying, it still works flawlessly and trust me. This thing has been through a lot Music, its tested in different environments. I have crashed it so im just amazed by how much this drone has survived. The only two things that needed to be fixed after i crashed it are one motor that was burned and one wire from the capacitor came off and just needed to be soldered back on and thats, basically it. So i really really recommend this drone. I have great experience with it today. I mainly use it for having some fun with fpv freestyle, and i have it as a backup drone on my professional geeks, because my number one drone that i use is nazgul evoke f5 with that kit design with this one. I can fly with a lower camera angle without getting props in the shot, and, yes, even with nas glue, you can easily do slow precision flying you just have to be gentle on the throttle, because its much more responsive compared to cineboops, and you also need to Have 100 confidence in your flying abilities because there are no prop guards here so make sure to put ours into practice, quick, deep master, hovering first and once you get that down, go then find some nice open, treetops and practice.

Slow precision flying through them start with a cineboop and then progress to a five inch quad, and this is how you will gradually build skill and confidence to be able to fly close to people and other valuable objects that you want to film. Moving on to category number three, which is 7 inch drone, its main purpose is long range flying since it can carry a bigger battery. You can get double the flight time that you normally get with a 5 inch quad its probably not the best choice for beginners because of the risks involved with long range flying. If you crash it two kilometers away in a rough mountain environment, you can probably forget about recovering it, but if you lose connection mid flight, all hope is not lost yet mind once lost connection because of the controller that suddenly decided to connect to my cine lifter. That i was in that was in the middle of updating process and chimera was at that time more than two kilometers away. I had no control of flying, so the gps rescue feature really saved the day here it landed. Now. If we compare chimera to a 5 inch quad well because of a bigger and bulkier frame, you lose some performance and speed. I mean it can still easily do all the freestyle maneuvers, but you need more time and space to be able to perform them. So i usually sacrifice the five inch performance for the seven inch longer flight time ability for situations where i know ill need to follow the subject for a longer distance and stay in the air for 10 plus minutes.

I own two chimeras. One has 1 800 kv motors and the other one has 1 300 kv motors, and the main difference between between these two is flight time and speed. 1 300 kv has lower speed but longer flight time, which makes it a perfect choice for doing mountain surfing. For example, and the 1800 kv has shorter flight time, but it is almost as fast as a 5 inch quad, so its a perfect choice if you need a fast drone with longer flight time ability, for example, long range range, car, chasing or stuff like that. Regarding battery time with gopro mounted on average, i usually get around 8 minutes of flight time, with 1 800 kv motors and around 12 plus minutes with 1 300 kv motors. If youre just casually cruising around, not pushing the throttle too much and the last category are the cine lifters and they are a new breed of fpv drones that are designed to carry professional cinema cameras. So if youre, a professional, fv drum pilot who works on commercial and or film sets where they need to film content with the best possible cameras, then this is the type of drone for you. The two single lifters i own are the iflight, tauros and shen drones thick and its really hard to compare these two because in terms of flight performance, they i dont see any major differences. Taurus is the most affordable bind and fly option on the market right now, but the cheapest option for owning a cine lifter is, if you build and tune it yourself and thick is the best option on the market.

If you ask me, cinelifter in terms of flight performance is pretty similar to flying a 7 inch quad, but of course, because of its size and weight, you need even more space for maneuvers and since you are flying with expensive cameras, you really want to be a Confident pilot also take your time to plan your shots and just do everything you can to minimize risk and iflight has recently released two new cine lifters, a cineboop version, protac 60 and a more powerful version of taurus, and they both look like a great option. But i dont have any experience with flying them. For now, this video was not meant to be an in depth review of each drone. It was more a general overview of the drones that i own since i get asked on a regular basis. What is the best fpv drone to get and, as you saw, each category has its own pros and cons so its really up to you to decide what is it that you want, and there are so many good fb drone manufacturer companies out there i fly with. I fly drones because i have very good experiences with their products and i, like their tunes and nasgol, was my first ever drone.
