Aside from being passionate about aerial imagery, I’m also a huge fan of first person view racing and freestyle using very small and very fast drones.  Pilots of these types of drones wear special goggles that show a live video feed from a small camera on the drone, so the pilot has the sensation of flying.  The thrust to weight ratio on these drones is nothing short of ludicrous, so they are very fast; typical speeds range from 40mph to 70 mph.

Truth be told, I have five of these small FPV drones and am currently building a sixth.  Both building and flying are extremely entertaining and addictive for me, so I spend a lot of my free time either flying or tinkering with my mini fleet.
