Thank you all for subscribing to my channel and liking my videos. Another year is over so I thought I would put together a compilation of some of my favorite clips of 2013 and some extra stuff I hadn’t gotten around to posting. After hundreds of crash repairs and thousands of $ I have found my new passion for FPV. (hopefully one day I can actually make some $ back).
In 2013 I discovered the world of brushless gimbal stabilization and very unexpectedly and more importantly the joys of mini FPV proximity flight which has completely turned my world upside down for the better. The technology and community is now growing at an exponential rate and I cannot wait to see what 2014 will bring our way. I always thought that multicopters would only get larger but I was wrong. I am now convinced that the future of FPV UAV technology is in Mini machines which are faster, more agile and crash resistant than ever before.
LET THE FPV RACING BEGIN!
Special thanks to Karlosvontrapp for his technical help and Blackoutthedrunk for developing cutting edge FPV dream machines. Check out www.minihquad.com and order yourself the parts to build your own custom high performance mini FPV racing machines like mine. Have a safe and happy 2014 and remember to have fun, keep crashing and learn from it.

I’m an FPV (first person viewing) pilot living in Hobart. I’ve been building and flying planes and UAV systems for about 4 years now. I had a friend who lived in Murdunna, and myself and another guy decided to try and get him a generator and supplies after the first big day of the 2013 bushfires. We found a back way to get access to the restricted areas and decided to take the opportunity to transport more generators and supplies to other people we met on our travels. We averaged 2 to 3 trips a day with two vehicles travelling as far as Eaglehawk. I always keep a quadcopter or similar in the back of my car so i flew around every chance I got in an effort to show everybody the full extent of the damage. I had never seen anything like it. I fly multicopters as a hobby, but hope to get a commercial license soon. For now I will just enjoy making videos for youtube and showing off the potential for these amazing machines.
