What is FPV?
FPV is short for First Person View, which is the term used for flying a remote control model aircraft remotely through a video link, and is also known as Video Piloting. Someone flying FPV controls the aircraft as if they are sitting in the cockpit, normally viewing the video through a monitor or, for full immersion, video goggles.
What Makes Up an FPV System?
A basic FPV system transmits videos from small CCD or CMOS cameras wirelessly to the display device on the ground. On the aircraft, the primary components are a camera, video transmitter, and custom antenna. On the ground, the video is received by an antenna hooked to a video receiver, which is either part of video glasses or feeds the video to a monitor. The video feed allows the “pilot” to see where they are flying while they use an RC transmitter to control the aircraft. Often flight controllers are used on the aircraft to offer everything from basic flight control and stabilization, all the way to fully autonomous flight.
What are FPV Systems Used For?
Common uses of FPV systems include a wide range of subjects. For hobbyists amateur use, drone racing, recreational flying, aerial videography are common. For educational amateur use, drone racing, autonomous flight competitions, STEM projects, and other student projects are done using FPV. For commercial and government use, aerial search and rescue, aerial photography, and security monitoring are common uses, as well as military surveillance, countermeasures, and counter SUAS development.
