Aussie FPV thread... :)
17 Attachment(s)
Howdy All,

I think it has been quite some time and I believe that is about time for all of us Aussie FPV people to have a common thread to post on for ideas and to have a thread where we can organise some FPV trips as well as just have a general occa, tru blue dinky die no raw prawn chat so here it is... :D

We definately need to organise a regular meet up/FPV fly... anywhere in AUS is welcome i can fly anywhere and if there is enough of us i am pretty sure that a FPV roadtrip will not be off the cards.

So it is about time to post up and be known.


Edit:Maps and Spreadsheet Up to date as of 01/06/2012 Let me know if I have missed anyone.

((To use the maps and open up the spreadsheet via word document and check the numbers for your state to know who is where by nickname))

Ok, so that everyone knows where is everyone is, please pm me with your suburb, city or town so that i can plot it on a map (updated regularly) to give people an idea where everyone is which makes organisng flights with the locals easier. These maps will be done state by state numbered with ledgends.

If you are keen to have your dot on a map pm me and i will get to it.
