How can I get into FPV Drone Racing?

FPV Drone Racing is immensely growing in popularity and is loads of fun.

Our local group, the Northern New England Drone User Group welcomes all ages. It’s free to join and is the best way to get help and questions answered. Free flyins, races, and meetups are offered at least once a month. Quite a few members have toy or micro quads at each meet. They’re never looked down upon!

It takes lots of practice to be able to understand how to fly an FPV Racing Drone as they don’t have a GPS or systems which make them easier to fly.
