NAFPV2015 is Next Week!

If you’re in the New England area, or don’t mind travelling, you should totally make the trek to the great North American FPV Meet in Stephentown, NY, August 13th through 16th.

The USDRA will be there, look for the hot green T-shirts! We’ll be getting into some awesome racing actionn, but also looking forward to some great talks on race organization, communication, and planning, in addition to the high speed fun.

Boston Globe reports on USDRA August Race Day

The Globe sent out their crack reporting team to cover our event on Saturday and have just posted their report. In short, it went great!

You hear it before you see it: a high-pitched whirring that sounds like a dive bomber crossed with the world’s largest bumblebee. This past Saturday, the buzz came from the edge of a large field in Berlin, just miles from where Interstate 495 meets Interstate 290 outside of Worcester. Moments­ later, there was a loud thwack, followed a sympathetic “ooh!” from a dozen spectators.

Video from Saturday’s Race

Luckyxero3 has given us a great video of a couple laps around the big course. Pilots seemed to like the longer course rather than the tight figure eight, so there was some great flying around trees and along the long straights. This was early in the day, and Luckyxero3 wasn’t quite comfortable with the course yet, so things are a little wobbly, but everyone had some great racing fun!

Thanks to all the pilots and the spectactors who came to the event, much fun was had by all!
