FPV drone pilot, Nurk FPV explains in increasing order of danger (or weight and size) the various first-person-view drones that he uses for different filming situations.

In the video, he discusses the drones ranging from small, light, and inexpensive for action cameras such as a GoPro Hero, to larger, heavier, more expensive that can carry cameras such as a Blackmagic Pocket or Red Komodo with cine lenses.

The smaller FPV drones are best suitable for situations where safety is of the utmost performance, as well as flying through small gaps or indoor locations. The larger FPV drones come into play when better video quality is required by the use of professional (heavy) cameras and lenses for increased video quality and dynamic range or for shots that take place at high speed.

Here are the FPV drones, Nurk discusses:

For some shots that require a gimbal, for instance when shooting straight down, to eliminate any input from the pilot, Nurk FPV uses the V2. In the video, he says that other than one customized Phantom, he doesn’t own any DJI products and typically rents one or borrows one when he needs it.
