  1. Sorry but this guy is not the best done flyer, I personally know the best done flyer in the world, he has been flying drones since the 80s.

  2. There are lots of pilots better than Charpu, it is a overestimation to say he is one of the worlds best. He is a great pilot, just not the best.

  3. My son's better hey k a proud father and American God bless our great great president of the United States Donald J Trump and his beautiful family

  4. Flying a racing drone is very stressful when you start. Because when you crash, if you break a component, you need to rebuy that piece, unsoulder the previous piece without melting the pads, then soulder the new piece on. Ugh.

  5. You assholes didn’t even credit his channel? It was mentioned in the video itself and you still feel the need to glorify yourselves.
