Build/Fly Cinematic FPV Drones in 2 Weeks | BTS Cinewhoop Build

We’ve gotten a TON of questions on how we achieved the drone shots in our most recent videos. Here’s a little flash back documenting Chris’ journey into learning how to build and fly his cinewhoop FPV drone.

The original goal was to land an R44 helicopter on top of a waterfall and fly an FPV drone THROUGH the doors, but the catch was he only had a couple weeks to learn all this stuff…

  1. This is like the karate kid of FPV. Amazing. That thru the chopper shot was insane. How was that after getting thru the cockpit, thinking “I’ve done it, don’t scree it up and hit a rock”

  2. Ok ok ok I am seriously contemplating an fpv drone. The build process and learning curve scares me but I think that drone training montage is everything I needed to pull that trigger.

  3. Awesome ? Dude… I’ve flown FPV myself a few years ago but haven’t in quite some time… nice ? to see you’ve picked it up rather quickly… if you’re ever in the NYC area I’d fly with ya…! Hola at ya boi… my YouTube handle for drone flying was JohnnyDrone best regards….
