This weekend, we are excited to test our newest FPV equipment!
Our top priority is always ensuring the safety of everyone involved, and we have been working hard to make sure that all our equipment is following all UK regulations. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the top five things we will focus on during our test flights: flight safety, new camera settings, signal strength, drone performance, and communication with our spotter.
- Flight Safety: In conjunction with the CAA rules all flights will have a spotter and keep a safe distance from people and buildings to ensure that everyone involved stays safe. This weekend is also training for our main spotter Charlotte.
- New Camera Settings: We are testing a new camera during our flights, testing our latest naked hero 10s are installed and programmed for best results.
- Signal Strength: Signal strength is crucial in FPV flying, so we will test the signal strength at different distances to ensure that the feed is consistently clear and reliable. We will make sure that our new equipment is capable of delivering a strong and stable video feed, even when flying long distances through trees and obstacles.
- Drone Performance: We will test the speed, manoeuvrability, and battery life of our drone to ensure that it meets our needs. Whilst also checking for any signs of wear and tear and address any issues that we find before the test flights.
- Communication with Our Spotter: We will work closely with our spotter to make sure that communication is clear and effective. Our spotter will keep an eye on the drone at all times and alert us to any potential hazards. We have a good system in place for communicating important information and keeping everyone safe.
We are excited to test our newest FPV equipment in the UK this weekend. We take flight safety very seriously and will follow all UK regulations to ensure that everyone involved stays safe. Looking forward to delivering some new FPV footage in our portfolio in May 2023
