You guys are cool. I really enjoyed your video. How long have you all been flying? and what type of drone do you guys use. I have a Phantom Vision Plus. I want to fly fast and crazy. But I wouldn’t want to damage my PV+. They take to long to repair and get it back. lol.. Thanks guys for sharing your video.
Hi Phillip. Just a heads up here, the video doesn’t belong to us, but to a cool team of FPV fanatics in Southern France called Airgonay. One guy on our team is French and have just had a discussion with the guys last week. There should be exciting news coming from their direction soon, so stay tuned. We also fly a P2V+ and definitely do not try to fly it racing style in the forest. It could put a big dent on your wallet. Just in case you have not seen the other video: https://www.dronethusiast.com/star-wars-inspired-drone-race/
if you don’t want to bang your Phantom up invest in a DJI Flamewheel 450, replacement parts are not expensive and they are easy to repair. When I bought mine ( they come oin a kit that you assemble ) I bought extra arms, and an extra screw set and the protctive satelight disc protector then built the mount up even sronger with misc. carbon fiber pieces. they are not as stiff as the phantom so it takes a little bit more skill to fly. The other side of this rig is you build it, program the radio and quadcopter. There is a guy on Youtube ( Alishanmao ) that has a three part video on programming the radio and copter. The biggest mistake that most folks make is not buying enough radio to fly it, the best bet is a Futaba T8J. The DJI Flamewwheel 450 is a great little quad to get your feet wet at speedflying, then once you get the hang of it add you camera and Gimble, Alishanmao even tells you how to build a cheap gimble with a couple of servos and misc parts. Just a thought on not breaking the bank every time you brake your Quad!!
