BIOGRAPHY

 I am Daniel Gitzinger, in the drone racing community known as “Mr Gutz FPV”, a passionate drone pilot who always strives to improve its skills. I got my first flying license in the beginning of 2015 to do aerial photography, but a few months later I already got the taste of racing. Since September 2015 I am also freestyling and I love to try new tricks. Which style I fly depends on my equipment and my mood; I am comfortable with both. During the winter I love to fly with tiny whoops on indoor events.

As I am very interested in the arts of photography and filming, I have a Youtube channel and a fanpage on Facebook, where I regularly upload my race cam videos, as well as best of reports from drone racing events and sometimes I do short interviews with friends from FPV Nation, a non-profit organization based in Luxembourg to promote the sport and bring together pilots.

Whenever I have the opportunity, I participate in a competition. In 2016 I flew six races and very often finished in the top ten. In February of that year I qualified for a race in Dubai but unfortunately, I couldn’t participate. In 2017 I flew 4 races of which the FAI Leiria Drone Race World Cup in Portugal was my personal highlight. In 2018 I already flew four races and in July I managed to win the Luxembourgish Drone Championship. This title gives me the opportunity to represent my country in the Drone World Championship in 2019, to which I am really looking forward.
