FPV Racing ride along with David Jason
Hi All,
I had the great honour of meeting Sir David John White, OBE (Stage name David Jason AKA Derek "Del Boy' Trotter from TV series 'Only fools and horses'). He was such a great chap to meet and have a chat with and I jumped at the chance to show him this new technology and hear his reactions to FPV Racing.

The plan was to stage a small race between myself and the biggest smile in FPV 'Badlands', I planned to stay close behind Badlands to get some awesome close proximity shots. The wind was very strong and caused a few wobbles but the plan went well and David got a smooth ride up until the end. Sadly a generator was running near us which drowns some of the sound out.

DougC was acting as our spotter during this event with Mike Elliott adding some commentary for the benefit of David. Thank you guys.

Huge thank you to Horizon Hobby UK for putting on this awesome event, every facet of the RC world was covered by some of the courtiers top hobbyists in attendance, the first UK Airmeet for Horizon Hobby.

Huge thank you to Leamington Hobby Centre for the awesome venue and for getting in a rowing boat to recover my Spanky 5 quad from the RC boat lake. Check out their site:

The amazing FPV Racing course was provided by the brilliant chaps at HoverSpeed RC, their support and passion for this hobby has helped so many, check out their website for more:

This flight was using the GensAce Tattu 1300mAh 75C 4s lipo, the performance is incredible and the consistent high discharge rate shows very little voltage sag during the whole flight, check out their website for awesome products:

This flight was recorded using the Runcam HD F2.8 camera, the quality of the image and reliability makes it a winner for racing and adventures, check out their site for more info:
