DJI FPV Launch & Time Trial Drone Racing Melbourne

DJI FPV Launch & Time Trial Drone Racing Melbourne

This was the first FPV Event held in Melbourne this year and it was powered by DJI in conjunction with GMAC, MMRC and EastSide FPV clubs. Mission Foods Australia were also kind enough to provide sample Corn Chip packs which were a big hit and kept both pilots and visitors fed.

Day consisted of RC Aircraft flying, FPV Drone Racing and Demos and taking people for a spin with the DJI FPV Drone. All in all it was great to see 3 RC Clubs, DJI and Mission foods all come together to help make this event successful.

It’s worth mentioning that we finally got the DJI drone to work in full manual mode without limitations which made it so much nicer to fly as specially for people who are used to flying manually. We will do a follow up video on the drone and show some comparisons etc Having said that I honestly recommend watching Bruces videos on the Drone. I think he’s done 3 Videos, the first was his initial thoughts and then followed it up with 10 reasons to buy and 10 reasons not to buy the drone.

Anyway I hope you enjoyed this video

I’ll add more to this list as I work out who else stocks this kit

  10. Jerry Parkman on June 30, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Enjoying the thrill of the chase with the DJI FPV!

  11. Witblits FPV on June 30, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Bet that’s the first DJI thing on a race track. You should fly it all the time, then I’m able to follow the track. 😂

  12. MC's Creations on June 30, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Pretty amazing flying, Thomas!!! 😃
    Stay safe there with your family! 🖖😊
