FPV overview, tuning and Fly-in

We are excited to announce our first meetup focusing on FPV. The plan is to meet and spend up to the first half of the meetup discussing FPV equipment and tuning our rigs. Then we'll head outdoors for some exploratory flying.

We are lucky to have several FPV enthusiasts in our group. They will be sharing their knowledge and expertise with the group. 

We'll again be working with Mad Lab Industries. Representatives will be on hand to with lots of gear. They will be able to explain and demonstrate how to successfully set up and operate your rig. Here is a link to their FPV items: http://madlabindustries.com/product-category/fpv-gear/ 

Also on hand will be members of Team Blackhawk FPV. Their members are also enthusiastic FPVer's who collectively boast 100's of hours of flying time. http://www.teamblackhawkfpv.com/ 


Directions: A.O. Fay lodge is conveniently located near the center of Highland Park directly across the street from the library. There are metered parking spots on the street surrounding the building. There is also a small parking lot located directly behind the lodge. Please do not park in front of the garage doors. If you are travelling from the city the building is a 5-minute walk from the Highland Park METRA station. Located on the U-P line, which originates at Ogilvy Station. When you arrive just knock on the front door and come on in. We'll be meeting downstairs in the dining hall.

    Hi Ryan I'm a long time RC helicopter flyer I joined this group to get acclimated to UAV's. I'm very interested in learning more before making a my first purchase. Do you think this specific meetup on the 28th is a good chance to meet some people and talk about the units they use and survey the best advice from the experts?

      Hello Matt. You're likely to see several setups and find that FPV is many different things to many different people. I encourage you to stop by, ask questions and learn which sort of setup would be best for you and your objectives. Hope to see you there!
