I'm in for just about any kind of racing... LOS , FPV whatever. There could be alot of damage in both types. I've been flying planes mostly, but will get some FPV practice soon. I'm going to mount the module from my radio outside of my car, run cables in to the radio and a 13" TV, and fly from inside. Too much snow on the ground now, but its melting I may have influenced a couple locals to try FPV racing too. But they have to learn to FLY FPV first.
I'm going to have so many epoxy mixing sticks ( broken props) that I may have to start to build composite frames!
Anyone know where to get props by the gross?

Love the NERD name. I'll try to come up with a logo.....

As for a place and time for the next event. Same place ( the Ice Cream Barn) Mid April ( when we get closer I'll have a better idea of the exact date )
may have more plane fliers, I'll have them fly to the other side of the field to keep some separation.
The owner of the ice cream barn may advertise the event, if he does we'll have lots more spectators.

NERDS unite!! we shall rule the world

Great!

I have a basement full of planes and related equipment collecting dust now I need to maybe think about selling. Any opposition to me bringing a bunch of stuff to sell?

I'm going to take a look at the footage I have of the area, and think about some race options. We should at least do the figure 8 LOS setup folks have been posting, and come up with some kind of FPV course as well as maybe some kind of obstacle course ? FPV LOS race or no race I'm sure it's going to be a blast. I'm looking forward to it!

I think selling stuff there would be great. The local hobby shop said he'd be there with some RTF micro quads and parkzone type planes. Maybe it'll be a swap meet too.

Maybe he needs horns...

I was thinking the obvious nerdyness might need to be ballanced with some badass...

For a more serious avatar that wouldnt work small, ive asked my (graphic novel artist) buddy to draw me a demon wearing a pocket protector flying a quad... curious to see what he comes up with... Sexy demon chic holding a CF hexacopter ?... drool...
