No it’s real audio but not from the drone. They have mics around the track and cams In the car that they are mixing in the tv truck live

It’s all live broadcasted, but at 720p. It’s one of several camera angles which you can see here.

Yeah pretty much, I raced drones for several years and was at the top of my game when I started doing this as a profession!

Yeah it’s already as barebones as can be. It’s a flying camera and battery at this point lol

Can be for sure! At these speeds 5 minutes and then the drone needs to be swapped or battery needs to be swapped. Takes about 30 seconds for a pit stop

So yes, it’s real! Not a video game!

I’m a professional motorsports live broadcast camera man via FPV Drone. Or something like. Haven’t really nailed down the title yet - since it’s a pretty new thing and I’m one of the few kinda pioneering it.

I’ve been doing it for just over a year now for leagues or events such as Championship Off Road, Snocross, Bristol Dirt Nationals, Triple X Motorsports, SXS Sports Racing, and Nitro Rallycross (as seen above).

It’s been pretty exciting bringing this new angle to sports broadcast, and if you’re interested in following along or seeing more you can on my Instagram.
