Hey Guys, This is a little off topic but it's awesome fun!

I have created a website dedicated to this new sport! (If you can call it that)  :)

www.FPVMultirotorRacing.com

To give you an idea of what it's all about I have attached some videos from our first race season.

Events are now starting to pop up around the world so log in and get involved!

Enjoy...

Guys you are totally crazy! :D

Well done!

See you in the next olympic games!

Thanks guys!

Hey Magnus, All of us met on a forum so that's why I set up the site.

If everyone who likes it signs up to the website you will probably find a few people in your area to race! :)

Looks like a lot of fun.  It's a new motor sport!

Great stuff guys and congrats, it's the future of "video games"!

Maybe paint/mark the waypoints for us noobs watching the vids, as it got a bit scary realizing one had to pass through the tree there and in between stuff, slowly building up a mental map of the racetrack ourselves? Also, maybe add a real time tracker and a map?

Enjoyed watching the 4 videos as the tension was building up. Great ending!

Better than Wipeout, can't wait to join the league someday :)

We filmed the tracks first so that the guys could watch the videos a few times before going to the track. It helped allot in memorising where to go.

These side by sides are also interesting.....

Nice idea! The Stevie Wonder song to the guy with the fpv goggles in Race 2 made me lol! I'll have to ask them to add this type of challenge to the FPV North America meetup in 2013 :D
