FPV Gimbal vs. 360 Camera

The new capabilities of a FPV gimbal drone share some of the advantages of a 360 “invisible drone”, originally pioneered by Stan-FPV. I am yet to operate one of these “invisible drones” but have been intrigued for a while in how they deal with some of the limitations of a traditional FPV drone. It’s along those same lines of thought that I gained interest in trying out head tracking gimbals for FPV drones.

The following are some advantages of a 360 “invisible drone” vs a head tracking FPV gimbal.

360 “Invisible Drone” – Advantages:

  • Can look anywhere anytime in playback, giving infinite creativity for framing shots
  • No additional sub-system
  • More foolproof from a piloting perspective, you can’t “miss the shot” or badly frame it

Head Tracking FPV Gimbal – Advantages:

  • Can look up or down during flight, allowing a more dynamic flight path
  • Uses a standard HD camera which produces higher quality and more natural looking footage
  • Durability, as the “invisible drone” cannot even land normally without risking the camera getting scratched
