Anyone seen today's video from Bruce on setting up a Global FPV Organisation to help represent FPV flyers to organisations \ governments who want to bring in regulations?

The thing is, having a FPV voice is like pissing in the sea... For something effective to happen you need legal and influential support. This is one of the reasons the BMFA is a bit effective because they work with legal support. So Bruce is right but exhaust country is different and would demand different resources. imagine the chair of the international FPV organisation being in the US and there is something kicking off in New Zealand ... How is that going to work? Would they send an influential rep to NZ to sort it out ? At what cost? Would you pay for it with a world wide membership? Yeah right...
He has a point but the practicalities and logistics would be almost impossible. I think local organisations are the key... Simon has already done a lot of work on our behalf and maybe the BMFA are beginning to turn a page towards accepting us so I think these are the people to support ...

True Simon has done a hell of a lot, even as far as insurance through FPV UK.

What would be the chances of a body being set-up that required FPV fliers to have regulations for their machines? In the same way a car needs MOT, Tax and Insurance, and FPV flier would need X, Y & Z.
And yes there would be the ones who don't follow the regulations the same way thieves, joy riders, speeders and drivers without insurance do the same.
I could be talking idiot-words, but if we show that our machines have safety features to prevent harm etc it could show the none-flyers how the majority of us operate?

The main point I see id the privacy law.
Quad or broom stick it the camera and the person at fault not the stick or quad.
This is the major argument direction for us and the analogy of the kitchen knife is good too.

But as Bernie said who would cover the cost of an international body to look after us.
Are best bet is to Support Simon and perhaps the BMFA will get get it's head out of it arse one day

It wouldn't hurt to have an international body as Bruce suggests, even if it it is just a pdf membership card and 10,000 international members all thinking the same way. Being part of a big international organisation hopefully carries some weight when you are having a local argument.

Perhaps membership should mean acceptance of a code of conduct.

I'm right there with you, i was just saying as a whole he has put many knifes into 'the nay-sayers' coffin from many different sides!

Looks good
Will try them later
How does the uno GS socket plug into the EZtracker
Is it into the phono plug? Where can you get the lead?
My EZTracker is on it's way and will be using the Tiny Telemetry OSD that I have. This is also going to used for 1.3 so I was thinking of just an audeo link to the EZTracker via the eagle eyes diversity unit .
