Days like today really make me remember why I love flying so much and how special getting together with friends to enjoy and share in that experience is. Thank you to those that keep the spark alive and fuel their passion.
Keep Flying. ‘Zoe
For those that have been around it for a few years we remember the drone uprising of Christmas 2015- since then the market has been stabilizing, entering a slow decline peeking on the holidays. Manufacturers have popped up in droves to create new products to meet the initial market demand that has never grown past the first boom: back when people were excited by the possibilities- not let down by the realities.
Personally I don’t know of a single industry has been able to stabilize after the first three years. Video Gaming had the crash of the early 80’s, 10 years after Pong… Almost 10 years ago FatShark was founded. 30 years after the crash videos games are making more money than blockbuster movies.
FPV is a magical experience, one that many still haven’t tried. Its been cost prohibitive. In late 2015 a micro fpv kit cost $400+, now it’s down to less than $70 for Goggles, Transmitter, Battery, Charger, and drone! It’s less than the price of a AAA video game and is now stocking stuffer territory.
We need to stop looking at the last three years and start focusing on the next 30 going forward. Remember this is still largely a small community- and we must all do better going forward to help grow it, because right now it looks like it’s on the decline. Let’s build it up better and bigger than before.
Today I start a new journey to get back to what I love most: flying and creating content that i’m proud of- plus working on new hardware to push those endeavors further. I’ll also be following my heart and doing what I personally can do to try and make the hobby & industry a better place… Might sound stupid: I want to live in a better world- and maybe I can help be apart of that.
These little flying robots have introduced me to so much, film-making, traveling to compete, friends all over the world, inspiring others to get into the hobby- and I’ve been lucky to be apart of the birth of a new sport. It taught me to push beyond my comfort zone when I needed it most all while introducing me to the world that only birds have had the pleasure of being apart of. FPV really is a wonderful thing, the world is only just beginning to wake up to it, and my real journey is only just starting.

This is one of two in existence; with the final version being color swapped. This may be the only kwad you’ll ever need 🙂 Used the original WBX to take First Place at the IDRA Dover Race this year, with over a year of flying and crashing the same set of motors. Have given my original build to @littlea.fpv for her to rip the skies apart, still holding together!
Also… RaGGe Whoops!!! Giveaways?!

Thanks @furiousfpv for sending it out, looking forward to testing it with some long range fun!
FPV “season” is almost over, looking forward to tinkering and perfecting my rigs after the next couple weeks of flying 😀
