FPV drone racing in Peterborough

I've built a track just north of Norwood but having trouble finding locals who can make it out regularly on weekends. We have 16 members on our FB group but only 4 members ever make it out once a month if I'm lucky. PM me if you're interested.

Re: FPV drone racing in Peterborough

aww, didn't notice the norwood part, just seen peterborough lol

20min drive from peterborough is nothing to complain about that for sure.

I drive 15min to my local club on the regular, 45min drive to the kawartha club in lindsey when I go there, 30 min drive to the indoor car track during the winter.

Re: FPV drone racing in Peterborough

thats pretty sweet actually, how are people so lazy they don't care to drive to come to this is beyond me!!!...an FPV racing quad is on my list for next season but if I had it now I'd be up there in a HEARTBEAT!!!!! Best you believe it....just bought a new goblin 700 competition airframe and motor the other day and need to save for electronics so it's a winter project now basically for next season as well and the quad comes next after that

Re: FPV drone racing in Peterborough

You know how it is, When it's free nobody seems to care. When you start charging then suddenly people start coming and then complain about the cost.

Re: FPV drone racing in Peterborough

The President of the Kawartha club is now a member of our group. He's come up for the last 2 meets. One other member of their club is a member of our FB group but has never visited the track once and he's been one of the 1st group members. Several members of the Brighton R/C hawks have joined recently and they are active flyers so that's a recent improvement.
