Quadcopter and FPV Featured Products
FPV - First Person View
First Person View (FPV) flying revolutionised the radio control hobby when it started to become popular in 2008. Instead of standing on the ground and looking up at the model aircraft, FPV allows you to pilot the aircraft from the on-board cockpit view - as if you are actually sitting in the aircraft! This is achieved by use of an onboard FPV camera, video transmitter and receiver, and the pilot wearing a pair of FPV goggles.
Quadcopters - the first in the UK
Multi-rotors are a perfect fit with FPV flying and we recognised that from the beginning. We sold our first quadcopter FPV kit in February 2010, making us the first UK retailer to do so. We have ready-to-fly and self-assembly kits to suit all levels of pilot, from the Hubsan x4 mini quadcopter through to the DJI S800 EVO Spreading Wings professional hexacopter. Our relationship with manufacturers like DJI, Yuneec and 3DR means that we are the go-to UK stockist for their fantastic range of products.
Quadcopters and camera drones
3D Robotics (3DR) is a well established quadcopter manufacturer who have recently launched the 3DR Solo quadcopter, for which FirstPersonView are an official UK stockist. We will be supplying the Solo, with gimbal and a range of additional accessories for both hobby and professional customers.
DJI is one of the world's leading quadcopter brands. We are a leading retailer for their range of quadcopters and camera drones, from both amateur level to professional series products. The DJI Phantom series quadcopters includes the Phantom 2 and the newest DJI Phantom 3 range. The DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter launched in November 2014, with its 4k 30fps camera and dual operator control. DJI also sell a professional range of s-series multirotors, such as the S-900 and DJI S1000+. And more recently the DJI Matrice 100 quadcopter, a modular design with SDK application development at it's core, has been launched with developers in mind.
A live FPV system makes precise aerial photography and aerial videography possible. Many of our amateur, semi-professional and professional customers use DJI quadcopters and hexacopters and camera gimbals to take breathtaking aerial photographs and footage which could not be obtained in any other way.
