First-person view (FPV), also known as remote-person view (RPV), or simply video piloting, is a method used to control a radio-controlled vehicle from the driver or pilot's view point. Most commonly it is used to pilot a radio-controlled aircraft or other type of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The vehicle is either driven or piloted remotely from a first-person perspective via an onboard camera, fed wirelessly to video fpv goggles[1][2] or a video monitor. More sophisticated setups include a pan-and-tilt gimbaled camera controlled by a gyroscope sensor in the pilot's goggles and with dual onboard cameras, enabling a true stereoscopic viewFirst Person View (FPV) RC flying is one of the hottest new interests in our RC  hobby today. Live feed video instantly transmitted from the aircraft down to the pilot who wears video goggles or glasses provides a unique window on the world. It is as if you were in the model’s cockpit. This development is so popular in-fact that the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), the governing body for all flying RC things, has developed strict guidelines for the proper procedures of FPV model flying . You need a safety pilot and a quick way to transfer RC control to the safety pilot. FPV flight has become so popular in fact that the web and YouTube is full of interesting and exciting videos.
