Whatever you do I dont recommend flying FPV at your rc club at all unless they are clearly 100% OK with it. I have heard so many horror stories about FPV'ers being kicked out because the older and more respected guys neither understand or aprechiate FPV. Some go as far as accusing you for causing interferance and crashing their planes when they dont even know the frequencies your operating on and are unaware of the redudancies in place to prevent interferance on other bands. It's really unfortunate that FPV is in this situation but its best not to stir the pot and cause a situation where you will have to leave.
