This year we’re kicking things off with the launch of an FPV Racing and Drone club and would love to hear back from those of you who have interest in developing a club for pilots of all skill levels, with a focus on FPV drone racing.
Drone Racing is the new Next Generation Sport
2015 has been the year of FPV Drone Racing. This sport is exciting and immersive, for both the pilots flying these 180-300mm sized racing quadcopter, through to the audience themselves, who can don a pair of FPV Video Goggles and tune into the action being played our on the race way. And that’s where the action really live – on the race course! Many of the pilots fly in their usual spots; a big field, abandoned building or golf course, but more and more event organisers are pulling the community together to take this sport to the next level. And that’s exactly where our club fits in.
Whether you fly a 250 size racing quad, a DJI Phantom quadcopter (many of us started out with these and still love them!) or anything else in between we’d love to hear from you in regards to the club or developing a club in your local area. You can also contact FPV UK for more on national clubs and association membership.
FirstPersonView.co.uk are based in Brighton, so we’d like to have a local level community focus, but would of course welcome anyone from across the country to join events as they happen. We stock a range of camera drones and racing products for those of you getting in to the hobby or looking to move up to the next level. Key brand are Emax, Immersion RC and Fatshark for Drone Racing, and then DJI, 3DR and Yuneec for general camera drones and recreational flying (and even business use if you have the right qulaifications!)
If you are interested in FPV club activities then please email [email protected] and mention ‘club’ in the subject line and we can start to develop a group of interested parties from here.
If you already have a ticket from the eventbrite website and want to fly, then please email us at [email protected] with your quadcopter details and which frequencies you fly on (for both video gear and controller).
And you can also join the community here:
We hope to hear from you all very soon!
