Charpu FPV: His top 5 most popular videos of all time!

Being one of the most popular Drone Racing youtubers out there, Charpu(also known as Carlos Puertolas) has his own speciffic style of racing that could be summed up as "mind the gap". He's always flying at a fingertip distance of windows and small cracks in some abandoned building somewhere.
God of Ripping

This is a list with the most popular videos from Charpu's youtube channel. It is not intended to be in the order of how skillful he was or how epic is the video. Mostly because ALL his videos should be number one.

Left Behind - FPV

  • Tight Gaps - Checked
  • Abandoned building - Checked
  • Catchy song - Checked
  • Awesome backflips - Checked

This video makes me feel like in a post-apocalyptic Earth, where Robots have taken the world. 

The only salvation is our skillful mini drone pilots that blow robot minds with their tricks… or something like that.

Abandonado -FPV

The battleground looks more like ancient Greece right now as he's venturing in an abandoned old bricks ruin, with arks and all that.

Right Between The eyes

Drones flying below old bridges and through tunnels in the mountains might not sound exciting at first, but just look at this:

As you can see, he doesn't take things to serious, as he's enlisted as a Pet on his facebook page. 

Way to go, brother! *throws pet cracker*

Charpu is one of the most popular FPV racers and probably the first one to have viral videos like these on youtube. And keep in mind, all this while he's working at Dreamworks and basically flying for fun! 

How do you make money with your drone, though?

Okay, so you got your new and fancy drone, but how do you stand out from any dad out there who has the same drone and watched some tutorials online?

I did exactly that and barely had any success. 

But now I’m charging 5x as much as before and even have to refuse clients from time to time.

I even bought about 7 online courses… and I didn’t make much progress.

So how did I finally make it to this level?

If you want the short answer, I learned everything from this guy Alex, who’s making $200 per hour with his drone. And he’s even teaching exactly how to do that.

This is pretty much what you need to know:


1. Make sure you have a proper drone.

If you have any of the latest DJI Drones, like the Mavic Air 2, for example, you’re ready to start making money.

No need to overthink this, but if it’s any help, check this comparison of the best camera drones compared in 2020.

2.Learn how to create the best content to stand out

You won’t stand out from the next dad who bought a DJI drone for Cristmass in the eyes of your clients if you don’t do this.

It’s WAY more important to know what you’re doing than the gear you have.

You’ll need to learn and master the following:

  • Flying your drone(to stand out from people with basic drone shots)
  • Preparing for the flight and weather in advance
  • Learn the best drone settings (you need a proper setup template)
  • Create the Video Script (it's way easier if you know what to shoot)
  • Have a set of great cinematic shots you know how to do
  • Know how to edit the video so it stands out
  • Learn how to color grade

This is why you HAVE to invest in a proper way to learn things (instead of watching tutorials here and there).

3.Find clients that pay 5x more than regular

But not so fast.

You won’t make a penny if you don’t know how to find your clients.

I have struggled finding clients even when my videos were getting pretty good.

Until I learned a few tricks and how to find and approach them so they won’t be able to say no.

And what’s best, I learned how to get the price I asked for.

How can you do the same?

I have tested quite a few courses online and watched tons of videos on youtube, but frankly, I have learned more from one single course than from everything else… and all that in like a weekend.

Made back the money from this investment in myself in a single week and then much more.


How do I learn all of this? From youtube?

You could simply go online and learn everything in terms of video from youtube, forums, facebook groups etc.

However, let me tell you, it’s the worst way to learn all of this(and the slowest).

You won’t have a Complete Step By step guide on how to do everything.

I found myself frustrated, even after I learned how to do most of the video stuff that I still lacked some knowledge and I didn’t know why my shots weren’t standing out.

I got some general promotion ideas from some articles online, but again… I didn’t have much success and was charging too little for my time.

This is exactly where I learned how to make $200 per hour with my drone (From A to Z)

This course is hold by Alex Harris, who’s an international video creator, director, and drone operator with tons of experience.

And I had a great time stealing his know-how(and greatly profited from it, lol).

I recommend you watch his video presentation bellow and check out the course sales page. It’s quite cheap, considering you’re getting 320+ minutes of everything you need to know, step by step and 80+ minutes on how to actually find the ideal clients for you.

I'm a big drone enthusiast, the owner of and I also make weekly videos on my drone YouTube channel.
