DRAGON LINK WEEKLY VIDEO CONTEST !!!

Win a FREE Dragon Link Receiver

We will be giving away a FREE Dragon Link Receiver EVERY WEEK... The rules are simple:

1. Post an FPV video flown with Dragon Link on YouTube that has " Dragon Link " , or " Flown with Dragon Link " or like statement, PROMINENTLY displayed at the BEGINNING of the video for at least 3 seconds. Having something like " Flown With Dragon Link " in the title of the video will also be acceptable. Having Dragon Link included in an equipment list or mixed in with other things will NOT qualify. Please read below for more details on this.

2. Post your video in the FPV video thread located here:
FPV Videos For those that want to see what FPV flying is like check this out [Part 6]

3. Also post your video here in this thread so that I will know to judge it.

4. Video Must be posted on YouTube. VIMEO or other video servers will NOT qaualify for the contest.

5. Videos must be posted on Monday, 8 October 2012 or LATER to qualify for this weeks contest.

6. The video that gets the highest view count at the end of the week, Sunday night, 14 October 2012 wins !!!


NOTES:

Running this contest every week costs me a lot of money " Flown with Dragon Link " must be prominent in the beginning of the video, not hidden in the middle or at the end. Having " Flown with Dragon Link " merely included in an equipment list will NOT qualify. If you are not willing to make the statement " Flown with Dragon Link " noticible in your video, I am most certinaly not willing to go to the expense and time of manufacturing, and shipping you a free receiver. This rule will be strictly enforced !!!

This is not a " Best Video " contest, the winner will be determined by which one has the most number of views at the end of the week ! The video can be as old as you like, but it must be posted as a new unique video so that we can count the number of views. Videos can also be used twice, but must be posted as new every week so that everyone has an equal chance every week to get the most number of views for that week.

This contest will be run EVERY WEEK, so if you do not win this week, no worries, try again !!!

Mike

He has a quad as well. That thing is awesome. I'll be getting a quad as my next platform, because then I don't have to go to the flying field. I can fly it off my deck lol

LOMAC was fairly close - better in some ways

I have a Falcon 4.0 manual sitting on my desk ... too cool.

I actually did get pretty deep into the game. It is an awesome simulator. It took me days just to learn how to land that F-16! Incredibly real!

Man, I wish my video on the last page could have been entered in the contest. Hopefully my next great video will be able to read, "Flown With DRAGONLINK!" on it!

One way or the other, in the next year or two, I will be posting a video entitled, "F-16 Fighting Falcon - Flown with DragonLink!" I have been wanting to do that since 25 years ago, since I was a kid, and someday it will happen...

Waiting for my replacement receiver. Very anxiously! Thanks Mike!
