Welcome to SkyRogue

Hi. Thanks for stopping at SkyRogue. I am learning to build and fly FPV racing drones. If you’re wondering what FPV racing is, it’s a cool new racing sport. Pilots use small quadcopter drones that are controlled by radio. A typical FPV racing drone has a camera that transmits video from the drone to the goggles used by a pilot. In a nutshell, FPV drone racing is a combo of high-tech and high-speed. Speeds sometimes reach 120 miles per hour and even more.

FPV drone racing is a highly competitive sport. Usually the winners are those who use custom-built drones. Building a drone is expensive and high quality drones may reach hundreds of dollars. Crashes are very common and therefore learning on expensive drones can quickly make this hobby prohibitive.

A good option for entering the sport is to use a cheap, ready-made drone. That’s why I’ve decided to start with a Hubsan X4 micro quadcopter. It looks like a toy but I’ve seen a couple videos where it reaches 25-30 miles per hour and flies at quite decent altitudes.

While my Hubsan X4 is on the way from Amazon.com I get familiar with the theory and plan for my custom-built drone. Stay tuned as some really cool stuff will be coming on SkyRogue.com.
