I have spent the last year or so learning how to “FPV” – which is a very specialized way of flying drones. My intent on leaning how to do this has always been to fly indoors – luxury homes (or any home for that matter with enough room to fly around.”
It’s not an easy thing to learn how to do. I started with a traditional Cinewhoop drone last year, and they are so very hard to control without a ton of practice. I have gotten a lot better with my Cinewhoop – but the game changer came with DJI came out with their AVATA drone. It’s a Cinewhoop-Style drone, but with a lot of additional features not typically found on standard cinewhoops. It has some obstacle detection abilities, and is a lot lot easier to fly.
Don’t get me wrong, you still need a lot of practice, and flying indoors is a lot different than just cruising around the local field.
The main drawback of the Avata, to me, was the on-board camera. Yes, it’s 4k, but it’s only 8-bit color, and the quality was not on the level of other action cams.
I decided to mount a GoPro Hero 11 on it, which really makes it the perfect drone for interior flythroughs.
The GoPro has 10-bit color, and just looks so much better.
FPV Interior videos are great for Coming Soon promotions, or for just full property tours. You can also insert amazing FPV clips into a more traditional walkthrough video tour – clips like flying over countertops, or through front doors.
This is a video I did that incorporates some FPV clips in a few spots during the video.
