IMAC guy goes to the Darkside - FPV Quad Racing

All right I have been seduced by the darkside. This happens when you are bored looking at other websites instead of sticking to airplanes. I ran across some videos of 250 size FPV quad racers. This stuff is cool check out the videos below. I am in the purchasing mode now--got goggles, got all the parts, just have to put it all together, I will let you know how it goes.

Air Gates - FPV Racing (2 min 39 sec)


Racing To The Limit (3 min 5 sec)

Until they give FPV a more peripheral view it is painful to me to use.

I hear ya... I don't think it matters much to those racer dudes tho...they tend to have tunnel vision anyway.

It does look fun. I saw some version where they raced through the woods like Return of the Jedi.

It's probably the most fun I've had flying but it's not that entertaining to watch
As a spectator. When you get a crowd then that's when you break out the aerobatic airplanes lol

I have everything sitting there, just need to finish it! My friends and I have FPV combat before. Now that is fun. Of course it is with a fix wing plane. Another thing that is fun to do via FPV are touch n gos. I converted my 2 year old Icon to FPV and that is a blast to fly.
