FPV at Hexham Field

New Naughty Boy, Mr J Dodger has perfected the art of FPV. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the dark art, it is the science of flying without looking. Whilst several members claim to have been doing this for years, none of them have managed to empty their wallets at the same time!

As can be seen from the illustration, the art of FPV requires the pilot to wear a rather stylish set of goggles. This enables the wearer to view the site of any crashes first hand. They may also be observed running about the field doing an impression of a five year old imitating the dambuster raid! Do not be alarmed, this is normal behaviour for FPVers. Flygeek and Sadfly have had a go at this new exciting extension of our hobby and were impressed enough to research budget alternatives for themselves!

On a good day you get to see where you crashed. ;)
