Worlds first top to bottom FPV run with custom relay system

When Red Bull approached us with the request for a full top-to-bottom recording during Red Bull Valparaiso Cerro Abajo 2022, we were a bit skeptical but determined to make it work. We invested heavily in engineering a custom relay system to ensure signal coverage along the entire course. With only one month's notice, there was immense pressure, but we successfully met the challenge.

After several days of on-site testing, Dutch Drone Gods achieved a groundbreaking feat – executing the first successful full top-to-bottom run at Red Bull Valparaiso Cerro Abajo 2022 with an FPV drone. Despite facing technical challenges and navigating demanding course conditions, our team persevered.

The reliability of our custom relay system was evident not only during this event but also in other notable instances, including Red Bull Hardline and various indoor shoots.
