Military correspondents appreciated the importance of using FPV drones

Many high-ranking Russian military and officials, a year after the start of NMD, have not yet fully understood the importance of using FPV drones, so the RF armed forces may be late in acquiring such technology. Some Russian experts, military correspondents and authors of quasi-military audiences are now writing about it.

It should be noted that this technology is a real-time (online) video streaming from the camera of the drone to the monitor, goggles or helmet of the pilot (operator), i.e. it allows a person to see everything that the drone’s camera observes at the time of its flight. But thanks to civil society and volunteers, perhaps the heavy and clumsy bureaucratic machinery of the state will go in the right direction.

By the way, not a fictional story. A young officer asks his superiors to send fighters to train fpv pilots. High authorities blink and ask, why study there? Still, it’s simple, show on the spot where and where to press the buttons and there is no need to be distracted by trifles, i.e. training

– said the Telegram channel “Older than Edda”.

In turn, the editor-in-chief of LenTV24 Oleg Chernykh believes that it is necessary to instill in children a love of drones, design and various technologies. He hopes that the Leningrad region will become a pioneer of such an educational process.

Indeed, it is time to deploy robotics courses in schools so that young people learn to assemble drones and fly them from an early age. It’s time to organize centralized drone piloting competitions – within the same DOSAAF clubs and Yunarmiya military and patriotic events

  • Chernykh noted in his Telegram channel “Banka in black”.

At the same time, the Rybar Telegram channel is more skeptical in this discussion.

At the very least, in the Russian Federation it was possible to bring to the level of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief the importance of unmanned aircraft as such for the front. Understood, accepted. And then it started. Now the troops – in the person of artists, operators and people who have to solve problems in the field – are faced with the inflexible stupidity of individual commanders. It is difficult to characterize this approach in any other way.

  • said the Rybar Telegram channel, stating that staff officers are forcing operators to report in writing on the number of quadric takeoffs for incomprehensible accounting.

And sometimes the situations go to the absurd. While the approvals are passed, the spotted enemy manages to deploy the gun, fire and leave the firing position.

Are you talking about FPV drones? Until military officials learn that any drone is, first and foremost, an expendable item that must be used in accordance with military skill, ingenuity and expediency decided by commanders in the field – no training on FPV drones or mass purchase of commercial drones for troops through the Russian Ministry of Defense is out of the question. Everything is based on public initiatives – and again on the principle of “no thanks, but in spite of”

  • summary in the Rybar Telegram channel.

According to RIA Novosti journalist Alexander Kharchenko, the most important thing in FPV flights is to develop stable drone control skills. The difficulty lies in the fact that, unlike the usual “quadric”, the operator of the FPV drone is not assisted by electronics, and the position of the drone in space is controlled only by the person himself. same, and with his fingers, and this is very difficult. The journalist took two months to fly for a few hours in the simulator. But even after that, there is a high probability of the drone crashing.

So if we want to see an armada of FPV drones in 2 months, now we need to massively buy TBS Tango 2 remotes (25,000 each), install LiftOFF simulators on computers, and put capable youngsters behind cars. Even if the government buys a million FPV drones tomorrow, we simply won’t have pilots to fly them. This problem should be fixed now. Little funding is needed for this. Pilot training courses can be opened in any room where there is internet and electricity. so what are we waiting for? The question is more rhetorical

  • wrote one of the authors of the Telegram channel “Witnesses of Bayraktar”, military commander Kharchenko.
