It begins. I’m going to participate in the next big race. The Drone Champions league. Together with Team FPV24 Racing (www.FPV24Racing.com) I’m taking the next big step and fly Europe’s largest race of its kind. This is possible only because of FPV24.com (FPV24.com is a pro-shop for racing copter, video transmission, motores and much more). FPV24 is supporting us completely so that we can take part.
The Drone Champions League is divided into several races. It’s not yet announced where all the races will be. The first race will take place in Reutte, Austria, at an old castle. To keep you updated, I will post every news – like the post about Dubai – here in the blog. But also in english this time.
Do you have questions / feedback or other suggestions? I am happy about every mail that you write me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
The updates will also be posted at:http://www.facebook.com/GlobalhawkFPV
Info: We have arrived yesterday. The meeting and briefing was postponed for two hours due to the rain and mud on the road to the castle. I’ll try to update you hourly – but I have to get an internet-connection.
Added: Group Draw
Info: The pilot rotation has changed, so I will be in Austria as a substitute pilot in this case.

Each quad will carry an HD video system. The system transmits the video-signal in full-hd to the pilot and their spectators.
The quads will get an unique color each heat. The propeller must be mounted in that color.
As with the propellers, the LEDs must be set to the pilots assigned color per heat.
