FPV Wings

Electric Flight - - E-FLITE/HORIZON HOBBY OPTERRA 2M WING -

If you’d like to check out what all the hype is about re­gard­ing FPV fly­ing and hone a new skill set (fly­ing “drones”), an FPV wing is worth look­ing into. FPV fly­ing wings are get­ting more pop­u­lar, and they are fly­ing bet­ter ev­ery day. With the in­tro­duc­tion of tech­nol­ogy like AS3X, you can eas­ily move into the FPV world. The key is to get some equip­ment and give it a shot. You’ll be sur­prised how much fun it re­ally is.

There are a few fun ac­tiv­i­ties to do with an FPV wing. Find a fel­low club mem­ber who will go up and fly the pat­tern while you play “chase plane.” With a little prac­tice, you will find your­self fly­ing nice, tight for­ma­tions ef­fort­lessly. It’s al­most like be­ing your own Blue An­gel demo team! It is also fun to go up and ex­plore your sur­round­ings. You might be sur­prised at what is on the other side of the tree line or hill at your field. Fi­nally, an FPV fly­ing wing can help your fel­low pi­lots lo­cate a downed plane. This can shave hours of search-party duty for every­one and get you all back to fly­ing ASAP.

So get out there and give it a try. I think you’ll en­joy it.
