Alright goggle jockeys, charge your batts and make sure you're recording, 'cause you now have a chance to win some epic fpv gear every month in the RCGroups.com Great FPV Scavenger Hunt. We have some big-name dealers donating fpv-related components as well as fpv-ready turn key aircraft! RCGroups will also be giving away 12 month Plus memberships along with the prizes... it's just that awesome.
Every month, we'll choose a few objects that you must find while flying fpv. These will either be man-made or naturally occurring, and nothing will be placed by us; everything is already out there. Once you spot the item(s) for the month, create a short video from your flight camera or HD camera, highlighting the items. Upload it to either Youtube or Vimeo, and title it: The RCGroups Great FPV Scavenger Hunt: June (or whatever month the contest is on). At the end of the month, everyone who has successfully spotted the items on video and met the rules criteria will be assigned a number. We'll choose the winner from a random-number generator.
Yes, every contest has rules (bummer, right?), but we think these are fair enough to allow for some healthy competition. And since this is a new contest, we reserve the right to adjust the rules if someone decides to cheat the system (yea, we're THAT hardcore).
The Great FPV Scavenger Hunt rules:
So far, we have a great group of sponsors on board, and the list will be growing as the contest gains momentum. If you are a dealer and interested in donating, please contact Matt (webdr).
Get out there, fly FPV. Relax. Have a good time. No whining. Be safe. Did I cover everything? Oh yea... good luck!Last edited by Matt Gunn; Jul 24, 2013 at 02:28 PM..

Do all of the objects have to be spotted in the same flight? or can I cut multiple flights together for this?
Can I enter multiple times with different videos?

But only one entry per person, per month.

I've actually found all three of those things in some old videos. I should actually have all of them in one video if I can find it. I was flying at a friends house, following his plane at sunset and he drives a yellow truck. Lol
