FPV Racing Mini Quadcopters Win/Fail

Hi All,
Here are some Win and Fail shots from our day racing mini Quadcopters.
West Devon saw a group of FPV pilots meet for some excellent FPV Racing of mini Quadcopters, the weather was ideal and the garden a perfect place to setup a track to try and avoid hitting obstacles.


We all had so much fun and it was good to put faces to usernames on the day. We all had our own take on how a mini racer should be setup for racing with a variety of components showing their strengths on the day, the Mobius sports camera seemed to be a common item on the quads and had quite a beating all day on every quad but survived very well.


To keep things fair we all used 5"x3" props (2 blade or 3 blade) and a 3s setup, the quads were very evenly matched with the advantage going to the pilot that manages not to hit anything.


Thank you to the pilots and spotters on the day for a great time.

That looks like so much fun! What kind of quads are those? Are you using goggles or monitors?

Lol Cheers Cemjr, no quads were killed on the day, I had a few issues of the magnets detaching from the motor bell in a few of my motors after heavy crashes but superglue soon sorted that out. I think we all walked away on the day with quads still in working and race order
