FPV flying is much more than just going faster than other drones participating in the race. Its about the feeling the thrill and the excitement that comes with flying successfully right from the beginning till end. With a racing drone in your hand its not necessary that you always have to take part in a racing contest to enjoy it. You can also try freestyle drone flying just to get that same feeling which usually comes as a result of drone racing. In fact it is recommended that you first experiment with all the controls at home and once you have complete confidence over your skills at drone flying should you take part in a racing tournament. Try experimenting with speed more than 50mph to see how your drone reacts. Also test various other functions and combine them to have more fun and excitement. If you want to be a part of this entire thrill and pure excitement simply buy a racing drone and first master the art of drone flying through online courses and training videos. After that enroll into one of the drone racing tournaments and practice till you meet the world-class top drone pilots in a contest and beat them with your extraordinary skills!
Keep in mind that while launching the Drone is relatively quick and easy landing and retrieving the Drone can be very challenging and consume all of the remaining battery capacity. Drone Batteries - most if not all batteries used for Drones and their controllers are LIPO batteries and are subject to generating a great deal of heat and require very specific charging and storage techniques. LIPO batteries should be transported in special foil packages and definitely not in the Drone. Special chargers are required to charge LIPO batteries. Additionally it may take up to 2 hours to recharge depleted batteries so the Drone operator should be sure primary and spare batteries are charged when the operator and Drone arrive aboard. The Operator should allow enough time to recharge the batteries after use. Operators should consider purchasing a multi-battery charger.
If you plan on renting a drone make sure you follow all the precautionary measures mentioned in the agreement. You should never fly a drone near radio or microwave towers because their frequency will interfere with that of the drone and cause problems. It is also not recommended to fly a drone in rainy weather. Although people fly drones indoors it is advisable to use these aerial vehicles outdoors only. Drone propellers are extremely dangerous and can cause severe injury or damage. While drone rentals are easy to acquire nowadays there is another option for you if think you cannot afford the new models of the latest drones available on the market. The choice is to buy a used drone in good condition by contacting a company that offers these machines at affordable prices. When renting a drone you have to specify the pickup date and the return date and then find machines available at a given time for rental. You can easily check availability of various models online simply by browsing through a drone rental site.
