We set up a canopy tent at a remote spot then Brandon and I attempted flying through my new FPVMODEL Race Gates for the very first time. All while Randy chased us around filming with his brand new Yuneec Typhoon. It was nerve-wracking at times but we all had a blast. It almost felt like a legit event.

FPVMODEL Race Gate Review - I must say I was skeptical about the quality of these cheaper race gates. All three little carry sacks for the ground stakes came torn with the stakes punched through the bottom of them. But other than that everything was great. And the gates themselves took some hard direct hits and skims with no damage whatsoever. For the price I'd highly recommend them! Link to purchase - http://goo.gl/Q7FWQ4

I think I'm finally ready to jump up to more powerful 4S batteries. This is about as fast as I can go on my current 3S setup. Must... go... faster... :)

I stumbled onto this park way out in Gloucester, VA (via Google Earth) that's one of my favorites found to date. Thanks again for taking a chance Brandon and reaching out to me. I'm so glad you did as I had a great time comparing rigs, getting to ride shotgun while you flew, and just hanging out. I can't wait to do it again soon!

Just got off the phone with Brandon. He's coming my way tomorrow. We're coming your way next Saturday say noonish and hoping you'll have your new setup by then. Regardless, I'll hit you up on your mobile towards the end of this week to square things up. Hopefully you can make it.

I got the RTF version from Getfpv.com and am running Openpilot. I'm using 10% expo within the software since it's a truer feel. And I have a 3-way switch with 20, 30 & 40% expo that I add to that as needed.

Also, I've wiped out Getfpv's settings and run the vehicle wizard to revert to Open pilot's default settings. That REALLY helped me a lot to calm it down.

To answer your question... I'd start at about 50% expo then ease it back as you get more comfortable with it.

Nothing too exciting here. Since being glued to the first ever Drone National's live feed for 2 days, and watching all of the brilliant pilots compete, I've been truly inspired. So, I angled up my PFV cam and spent some time just focusing on pushing the aileron forward. I think I'm starting to get it. I need some more practice... then some bigger motors lol.

Thanks! I've now tried both and gone back to just a Bluebeam on my Fatsharks. I can get out and run after a crash and not be connected to a wire. The signal really gets out there pretty far! I've ONLY fpv'd from my car since this video (all videos past this one). :)

I slipped out after work to really push my new 5x4 propellers and see if I liked my controls dialed up (which I do). The increase in thrust is definitely nice but it introduced some jello and blur into my videos. Oh well, I guess I'll always be chasing something. Back to the drawing board on that.

What a beautiful day it was yesterday. I finally built up the courage to try some new things: axial rolls, horizontal backflips, a horizontal roll and a massive yaw roll that almost took me out. My yaw was set too slow so I dropped like a cannon ball and pulled up just in time. Lesson learned. Time to readjust and get back out there. God I love flying!

Silly yes, but it a was huge milestone. This was the first time either of us put two quads in the air at the same time. Following was a lot harder than I thought it would be. It's like trying to follow a fly around the house. It started clicking towards the end... just block out everything but the tiny dot out in front. Can't wait to do it again!

I finally managed to sneak out for a second to fly today. I didn't even warm up or finish my first battery when my FPV camera finally died. It's been front and center at the scene of countless accidents, so I guess it doesn't own me anything.

I for some reason FPV'd next to a big radio tower. If it wasn't the nearly invisible power lines and dozens of tower guide wires, it was the constant and terrible radio frequency interference. I decided to finale with a total blackout followed by a pretty spectacular crash (for your viewing entertainment). :/

I finally managed to hit this park when no one was around since it was threatening to rain. I changed my throttle to be on a curve. After trying it, I can't believe I've haven't been using a curve all along. It sure makes tight places a bit less terrifying.

Story
Tagline
I fly FPV racing quadcopters (or drones via goggles).
Introduction
For the past 20 years my only hobby and creative outlet was my work (web design & animation). In October of 2014 however, I bought a Nano QX on a whim and instantly fell in love with flying quads. A month later I bought a Blade 200QX. A month later (after breaking a LOT of plastic parts) I researched and got a Lumenier QAV250. I had no clue what I was getting myself into. What a wild ride!

Every time I fly my thumbs go numb, I shake from the massive adrenaline dump, and I just smile. From ear to ear. I think I'm forever addicted.

A huge thanks to the folks at GetFPV.com for all the help along the way. And also to the countless jaw-dropping pilots posting your videos... you are TRULY inspiring and make us all want to fly even more. Keep doing what you do best.
