FPV Drone Configuration. Flight for a distance of 8 km in the mountains

FPV flight 8 km in the mountains

This video caught the atten­tion of many in the hob­by, as the flight shown was at high alti­tude in the cold moun­tains. And the very fact of the reli­a­bil­i­ty of a quad capa­ble of with­stand­ing a flight in such con­di­tions real­ly deserves respect. Note that long-range flight requires the pilot not only pilot­ing skills, but also absolute con­fi­dence in the com­po­nents of the drone involved. It is also equal­ly impor­tant to know how busy the flight zone is with inter­fer­ence. For exam­ple, the author of the video not­ed that there was prac­ti­cal­ly no inter­fer­ence where he flew. Wind cur­rents are anoth­er impor­tant aspect that you need to pay atten­tion to before take­off, because it is known that at dif­fer­ent heights the wind cur­rents move at dif­fer­ent speeds, which was exact­ly what the author of the video drew the atten­tion of users to when he reached the max­i­mum dis­tance — 8 km; at an alti­tude of 2300 m.

For a pre-flight analy­sis of weath­er con­di­tions at the launch site, you can use the pop­u­lar hob­by mobile appli­ca­tion — UAV Fore­cast, which pro­vides all the com­pre­hen­sive data.
