FPV drones are designed to accommodate lightweight cameras such as the GoPro orInsta360, offering the possibility of exploring 360-degree viewing angles. Their ease of deployment makes them suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

Thanks to their light weight, FPV drones present a low risk of injury in the event of a collision. What’s more, the cameras mounted on these drones are often robust, designed to withstand sporting use, which also reduces the risk of damage in the event of impact.

These drones are particularly recommended for capturing video at sporting events or making video clips, offering impressive, fluid camera movements that add a dynamic dimension to your productions.

Which FPV drone to buy?

With such a vast drone market, prices can vary considerably, from high-end models exceeding 1,000 euros to more affordable options at less than 500 euros. Your choice will largely depend on your needs and your budget.

If you’re new to FPV drones, the GEPRC Cinelog 35 Performance could be an attractive option thanks to its excellent value for money. For the full experience, you’ll also need a controller like the TBS Tango 2 and a vision helmet like the DJI Goggles 2.

However, if you prefer an all-in-one, ready-to-use solution, the DJI FPV Explorer Combo could be the best option for you. This complete package, available at a price of 1,029 euros, includes an integrated camera and offers an immersive FPV experience right out of the box.

Explore how the use of an FPV drone brought Shaoke’s warehouses to life

Shaoke Logistics asked us to produce a video highlighting their warehouse in the Netherlands. To meet this demand, we have prepared a wide range of equipment, including a Sony A7Siii kit for top-quality shots, a gimbal DJI Pro RS2 for smooth, stable images, as well as two types of drones: a drone Mavic for classic aerial shots and an FPV drone for more dynamic, immersive shots.

This combination of equipment enabled us to capture a variety of images, from calm and composed sequences using the Sony A7Siii and the DJI Pro RS2 gimbal, to incredibly dynamic and spectacular shots taken with the FPV drone. By alternating between these different shooting styles, we were able to create a captivating and lively corporate video, highlighting every aspect of the Shaoke Logistics warehouse.

The end result exceeded our customer’s expectations, winning praise for its quality and dynamism. In fact, the video has even been adapted in Chinese to meet the specific needs of Shaoke Logistics’ Chinese customers. This success testifies to our ability to effectively use a range of equipment to produce impactful visual content tailored to our customers’ needs.

“It was great working with POP Productions on our corporate video. Their communication was excellent, they really think collaboratively with you and they worked efficiently while paying attention to detail. We’re really happy with the end result of the video!” – Lotte Brand – Marketing Manager, Shaoke Logistics.
