Things to know when buying a racing FPV drone

It’s exciting to drive at 100 miles per hour on the technical route. The excitement of the FPV drone race has just begun. It’s an adventure that everyone of us can enjoy. You might think about taking your mavic drone to the park and doing the same thing with your friends, which might be fun, but that’s not what we’re going to talk about. We’re talking about small, tough, agile, high-speed machines, with FPV cameras and goggles, driving at twice or even triple the speed of your mirage UAV on highly technical, closed tracks.

There are many levels of FPV drone competition, beginners can enjoy their local league sports, and professionals can take home millions of dollars in world-class competitions. One thing is right for everyone. You have to start somewhere. If you are here, you are ready to learn what you need to fly before you start.

What do you need to play?

Before we dive into the exciting FPV drone, you can accelerate away and let’s take a look at the additional information, tools and accessories you need to go.

As always, in the United States, any UAV weighing more than 0.55 pounds needs to register with the FAA before flying. In other words, the FAA administers outdoor flights. You can fly indoors freely without registration. One of the most important regulations of the FAA on SUAS is the line of sight. Most cars use FPV goggles, which, technically, can take your eyes off the drone. If you’re flying outside, look at the rules with observers.

I repeat, you need to register your FPV with FAA before you fly out!

Unofficially, FAA representatives have informed us that the money won in the drone race is considered to pay for the flight costs. Officially, the FAA has no specific regulations for UAV competitions. We have contacted the FAA for confirmation, but if you plan to participate in outdoor competitions and you can win money, we recommend that you consider obtaining your part 107 UAV license and consider flying as a commercial operation. This is a developing topic, please continue to pay attention to more information.

Finally, the FAA says your drone’s top speed is limited to 100 miles per hour. It’s very difficult to surpass this speed on a technical track, but many drivers have the ability to exceed 100 miles per hour whenever they have the chance.

If you are paid to fly, or any other form of compensation, you must operate under a different set of rules and have a commercial UAV license. We call it part 107, which is not difficult, but it takes some time to learn all the rules. We want to help you learn the rules and get a business license, check out our UAV pilot training materials.
