The California State Fair recently hosted the first ever Drone Nationals–a FPV quadcopter racing competition that brought together pilots from all around the world. After two days of races and freestyle stunt performances, we chat with the event’s director and the competition’s eventual winner about the developing sport of FPV aerial racing.

Thanks to Chad Nowak and Multi Torot Mania for their FPV footage!

  2. Sebastian Elytron on February 26, 2020 at 1:30 pm

    Fuck drones

  3. Joe Noonan on February 26, 2020 at 1:31 pm

    Death Race with drones. Yes. Do it.

  4. maxdragon91 on February 26, 2020 at 1:33 pm

    I see a lot of FrSky transmitters in the video…..are they better then Spektrum rc?

    hi. we are a group of first semester engineering students and we were assigned to design and create a drone built for racing. what do you feel would be something you, as drone racers, would like your drone to be as or to have? (Material, motors, cameras, props, etc) thank you for your time.

    9:06 I was like…. wtf?!

  8. Mr Smith on February 26, 2020 at 1:41 pm

    This "Bruce-Lee" dude is a biggest KISS-ASS ("Butt-Licker", for less sophisticated) I’ve seen in the entire Cosmos (which is basically my moms basement hocked-up to the Holy Of Hollies, The Internet..).. I mean he was doing an interview on a freaking Football Field..! Weren’t there any Jocks that could’ve weggied him, or tied him naked to one of the poles..?! Where are those half-wit oafs when you need them..

  9. Adam Nair on February 26, 2020 at 1:42 pm

    How come you dont show the drone at 10:55 when he’s talking about it?

  10. TheCoolStuffHD on February 26, 2020 at 1:42 pm

    Wow, that’s a nice looking quad.

    Oh, wait, they didn’t show it. Who edited this??

  11. Marco Maio on February 26, 2020 at 1:47 pm

    I wonder if I could fit that microphone in my ass

  12. Speedy2246 on February 26, 2020 at 1:47 pm

    that looks pretty bad a#$

  13. hooktenpushups on February 26, 2020 at 1:47 pm

    not enough risk for entertainment value, when real athletes in the X-games fuck up they are risking breaking bones. back to the 3D VR race track, at lease let the fucken drones smash and break for entertainment value, track should be modeled like the battle bot arena, why would anyone want to watch this for 40 minutes unless they themselves were drone pilots.

  14. Zipp4Everyone on February 26, 2020 at 1:48 pm

    with that title i expect to actually see some racing and not just 11 minutes of interviews! Fuck off!

  15. Endo Gamy on February 26, 2020 at 1:49 pm

    Well done!

  16. DURTY SPICE EWW EE 420 on February 26, 2020 at 1:50 pm

    Soo cool

  17. AV8R Tom on February 26, 2020 at 1:51 pm

    How do you get rid of all the flicker and interference on the FPV Glasses? The Drones film such great video, but the streaming seems really unstable and just plain bad.

  18. Sey Ha on February 26, 2020 at 1:55 pm

    ok

  19. Cormyster on February 26, 2020 at 1:57 pm

    Ive never seen anything like this, what does the user see through the goggels

  20. davonizdashit on February 26, 2020 at 1:57 pm

    Are rc airplanes considered drones too or just quads?

  21. 1stcommonsense on February 26, 2020 at 1:57 pm

    Yea Baby! Sports for Nerds!!! This is going to get huge….

  22. Isami Freeman on February 26, 2020 at 2:00 pm

    I wonder if there’s a way to make the live video feed coming from the drones a bit clearer/less static. It’s good enough to the point where you can tell where you’re going, but it would benefit the racers much much more if the image was clear and stable without the static hiccups. Since every second counts in a race, these split second static hiccups may mess them up. Hopefully the technology gets better.

    Please Guys, Have a look at the link below and Please if you can help!paypal.me/pools/c/80tIy37FVm

  24. Kevin Mitchell on February 26, 2020 at 2:05 pm

    Cool … a nerd convention.

  25. Timothy Stratton on February 26, 2020 at 2:07 pm

    would love to see the thing fly, NOT the camera on it, making me dizzy

  26. genkijin on February 26, 2020 at 2:07 pm

    This is crazy! We are watching the birth of a new racing circuit in fpv.

  27. TheJamsh on February 26, 2020 at 2:07 pm

    All we need now is floating powerups!

  28. Robert Desi on February 26, 2020 at 2:08 pm

    Preeeettttyyy e.p.i.c

  29. Ashok teja on February 26, 2020 at 2:11 pm

    The fpv quality needs to improve, wonder how they can fly with that resolution.

  30. ohMARVIN on February 26, 2020 at 2:11 pm

    Haha that one guy failed at the start of the race.

  31. Adam Savage’s Tested on February 26, 2020 at 2:11 pm

    Adam Savage has a drone, and he’s made some custom accessories and gear to optimize his flight setup, because of course he has: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JsGggcQRTM

  32. XD on February 26, 2020 at 2:12 pm

    Well done event Chad! I appreciate your incorporation of government agencies that have really had a sour taste in their mouth about RC vehicles in general and now focused on shutting down hobby drones. Your professionalism goes a long way to help them recognize this as a safe and controlled hobby with only a few outliers that need enforcement.

    Remember folks as aircraft pilots (manned or unmanned) you are responsible for knowing and obeying flight rules.

  33. Joel V on February 26, 2020 at 2:13 pm

    lol never seen Chad so serious.

  34. Lala Papa on February 26, 2020 at 2:13 pm

    It got better @4:22 – PAUSE. Grab lotion. Enjoy the "feeelz" xD

  35. Dontbeweakvato on February 26, 2020 at 2:13 pm

    norms voice is kinda annoying. idk if its his gayness or his nerdness.

  36. Alexander Perez on February 26, 2020 at 2:14 pm

    Hice este grupo para los que hablan español y quieran unirse a un grupo solo de hispanos creo que es mejor para los que no tienen un buen dominio del ingles para encontrar soporte mas fácilmente y compartir nuestros conocimientos y experiencias directamente en español Drones y Miniquads en general (Español)​ ("A group for hispanic people who dont speak english and want get into the hobby, if you know any spanish speaker that is actually in the hobby or interested please show him this message :D“)

  37. muffdriver69 on February 26, 2020 at 2:15 pm

    If it was droneracing, I just let my drone race for me. Otherwise, it’s called quadracing basically.

  38. ROCKET JUDGMENT on February 26, 2020 at 2:17 pm

    Ibuy one .. i want it.

  39. Gr1ml0ck82 on February 26, 2020 at 2:17 pm

    He just learned the word Epic.

  40. SP Heli on February 26, 2020 at 2:18 pm

  43. Dale Bergeron on February 26, 2020 at 2:23 pm

  44. Hankerson Photography & Video on February 26, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    This sounds very cool. When and where can I view. I live in FLorida.

  45. D Rock 75 on February 26, 2020 at 2:24 pm

    I like the part where you ask about his quad, then don’t show it.

  46. Arutyun Demirchyan on February 26, 2020 at 2:26 pm

    F***** chinese is  a weirdo, awkward as hell. Doesn’t know how to speak normally.
