Deciding the winners:
Each qualify entry will be assigned a number at the end of the each “Hunt” entered into a random number generator. Those that film the “Bonus Target” will get an additional number/entry and therefore have two chances to win.
Each “Hunt” will list specific targets. You only need to pick any 2 and film them via fpv for your entry.
One of these targets will be marked as a “Bonus Target”. If you film the “Bonus Target” and include it with the other two targets (for a total of three) you will get an additional entry into the pool, increasing your chances to win.

- Important Update -
Subject: BONUS TARGET
Spec UAV realizes that we are asking you to do certain tasks via FPV to gain entry into the Scavenger Hunt & that some of the targets fall outside of what could be considered "normal" fpv flying.
Considering that, and the fact our bonus target for this months hunt is to film fireworks via fpv - we felt it necessary to make the following comment and set a standard. In light of a recently posted video at Youtube, RCG & other social media websites which is garnering lots of attention - Spec UAV wants to make it crystal clear, that that type of fpv flying and filming is NOT want we expect, condone or will accept as an entry.
We do not endorse flying any object directly over and into a public event that is displaying Fireworks...period. This would undoubtedly create and pose undo risk to spectators on the ground. The intent was to be seen from a reasonable distance so that the fireworks could be seen.
If the fireworks display caught on film is clearly of a private nature ( ie Yuvksi's video entered in which he sent up his own fireworks) that would be acceptable. Involving the unknowing & unwilling public is not. In the future if you see a target that we list that could be questionable regarding safety, please bring it to our attention and state your case why there maybe an issue.
Thanks for your time.

FINALLY another scavenger hunt! I love these, and I just got my fpv setup back up and flying (after a devastating crash due to loss of control signal in which it spiraled into the ground :-()
I look forward to it! Thanks for posting.

This is my first time entering a scavenger hunt so excuse me if this is a stupid question.
Is it really ok to just cut together parts of different FPV-flights i've done and if so what is the actual hunt?
I thought you had to film at least two of these in one flight under three minutes.

I'll jump on board too, since I use a monitor and not glasses, should I take off / land in front of me or is it ok if I do it sideways?
