Here is an idea for proof of concept on this type of racing. Try it with cars first. See if you can get a bunch of guys to race FPV on across some fields or through the woods. I'm not much of a car guy but I've seen plenty of those things go pretty fast and alot more squirrly than a 150mph plane. No where near as dangerous for the public.

Virtual

If its all virtual, why use real planes.

Have someone write a computer program and play online... I think it would be cheaper.

Let's just forget FPV altogether and start doing Turbo Flea obstacle-course racing. THAT would be exciting

Yeh, or just go get ya PPL, buy an extra 300 and go talk nice to Mr Redbull

As mentioned, there's always wipeout And you get to use lasers and rockets on ya spaceship racers!




Idiots doing dumb stuff with FPV is what will get all toy planes banned, im not saying all FPV flyers are idiots, just that some are. The world is full of stupid people and legislation needs to take them into account as well. Id be happy if they just made all private FPV flying illegal, sad, but true. Your not allowed to own cruise missiles/RPG's/air to air missiles either....

With the proliferation of FPV and the availablility of it off the shelf at low cost, we are seeing people flying FPV where they should not be and in a manner they should not be.

In my view FPV should be allowed, but licensed.

Only a quad man? I wouldve thought a man of your calibre would have at least an octo.

I have to sit PPL papers to fly UAV's within line of sight (at least in NZ - Aviation law and radio operations). Why should FPV be any different....


How is this not a very good idea How long until somone (lots of someones..) gets killed? That would "Not be good" in a swedish accent.
