The short answer—yes. Operating recreational unmanned aircraft (model aircraft) using First-Person View (FPV) is legal.
Even more, what is FPV on a drone? First-person view (FPV), also known as remote-person view (RPV), or simply video piloting, is a method used to control a radio-controlled vehicle from the driver or pilot's view point. Most commonly it is used to pilot a radio-controlled aircraft or other type of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).

During each flight, a drone will be required to transmit its identity and location over the Internet to an online service provider authorized by the FAA to be part of the location-tracking system. ... A 2016 law required the FAA to develop a remote identification standard by July 2018.
You cannot legally shoot down a drone just because it's over your property. ... But you should not resort to downing drones regardless of where you live. The Federal Aviation Administration considers a drone an "aircraft."
Keep your drone within your visual line of sight, or within the visual line-of-sight of a visual observer who is co-located (physically next to) and in direct communication with you. Do not fly at night unless your drone has lighting that allows you to know its location and orientation at all times.
