Raphael Pirker

Team BlackSheep
Raphael Pirker is the co-founder of Team BlackSheep, who has pioneered the so-called "FPV" movement. FPV is the revolution of the remote control hobby through the use of miniature video cameras, long range video transmission links and virtual reality goggles. Their stunts have gained world-wide attention and turned into a YouTube phenomenon after one of their aircraft managed to buzz the Statue of Liberty in New York City. Flights in some of the world's most spectacular locations have followed. They are regarded as one of the leading forces of a community-driven, DIY drone scene that is rapidly gaining traction all across the globe.
