Idea
Multi Rotor Racing (FPV or else)

The time has come for multi rotor pilots to climb out of their dimly lit caves and gather in broad daylight to meet face to face and compete in FPV multi rotor racing insanity. Its the obvious next step for FPV. And it's starting now.

Lets get organized and RACE!

Www.MultiRotorRacing.com

Site is at its infancy. I'm looking for anyone interested in helping organize this on any level. Feel free to pm me with feedback , or just ridicule me here , it's ok , it will still be fun!

-Andy

This is a great idea. My local quad flyers & I have already been talking about creating race specific quads.

If I had one suggestion for the website, it would be to get rid of the bouncing MRR banner on the top of the page. Its alittle annoying and takes up an awful lot of screen space... on every single page too?

Thanks for putting together the site!

Note taken.
I'm about to really dig into the site this weekend hopefully.
I had that animation up as the splash page before actually developing the site. I will be able to put as much time into the site as there is interest. The more response I get , the more time I can allocate to it, as well as financial resources if need be. (My wife doesn't understand why anyone would be interested, so I have to prove her wrong!) I am also looking for administration help on the site if anyone is interested in helping develop the site and admin responsabilities. (Pm me)

Thanks for any and all feedback.
I really hope to push forward with this and facilitate some immense fun in the future.

Yeah I saw the site the other day.

Progress is looking good. I am planning on turning my V-Tail frame into a high speed quad racer!

I just need some 6s ESC's

Hahaha, I love this. Although I didn't realize the website had anything to it until after I scrolled past the massive banner

Awesome job Andy! Looking good!
I'm hoping we can turn this into a massive sport.

Immense fun is an understatement!

You will be fully addicted to FPV racing!!!

Trust me, I know!!

Cheers,

Ok ok, I'll get on the banner fix tonight...
Going to take time away from my Y6 build damnit...

Other than the banner... Please let me know what other forum headers or aspects of the site you feel would be useful.

I didn't see that site when searching for existing FPV racing sites...

This all started watching the TDB videos, so you guys are the pioneers here.
Can't wait to see where it goes!

Me too!

TDB started with a few of us that met on the Open Pilot forum.
One day there was a post "Anyone in Melbourne" and before we knew it we had 8 guys hooking up for a fly from time to time.

Then one day I said "We should have a race". And then it was on!!!

That's what is awesome about our websites, like minded people can find each other and go have some fun!

After reading this thread, and having a look at what you guys are doing in Australia and New Zealand, we are starting to set up racing in South Africa. Response on the local forum seems to be positive. I have registered the domain name multirotorracing.co.za and parked it while we get some more response and figure out a few rules and find locations.

Cheers
Rob
