The racing does sound good! Although, how bout a wing/plane class? Motor restrictions included etc =P

Just waiting for Vtx to arrive now which has been sat with Royal Mail for the last 2 weeks....then im back in the air =P

Anyone tried one of these profile planes with FPV gear on?
I had the profile 40mm EDF F-22 and went like s|-|!t off a shovel, could easily get lift 1000mah, i rate itd even go up to 1300mah. Might need the KFm2 airfoil though

A sealed lead acid "alarm" type is a better idea or Li-ion
Cheers for the info....LIPO is defo off the list

how about keep it simple......BIXLER EASYSTAR class as I get the feeling many FPVers have one and or cheap set up costs.......I would even travel for that.....Red Bull air race move over.

Quad racing sounds a great idea.
Perhaps some test comps could be held at DD's MK site.

I can supply some inflatable pylons (with a blower at the bottom, so no small impacts will deflate it) :P.

Big balls Badlands, big balls. I like the 'freestyle' landings/slides/grinds in the skate park, the ones where you take off before it comes to a stop are awesome

What have we said about this teaser ploy with your videos. You can't get our hopes up of a young lovely like this only to be let down by yet another great video. It's just not fare.
