On the 13th of September 2015, the local model airplane club hosted a multirotor racing event at the Trentham Rifle Range in Upper Hutt (New Zealand). Obviously the range was not being used for shooting at that time. Using my FPV receiver I hitched a ride on the pilot’s video feeds. Here is a compiled video of the thrills and spills of Rotorcross.

The video streams were a bit glitchy and noisy so I apologise for the video quality. The music was “West Fork Gals” by Shake that Little Foot, and Yakity Sax better known as the Benny Hill Chase Theme. The audio “commentary” was taken from the Playstation 2 game “Driven to Destruction” which seemed appropriate.

Here are a couple of frame grabs.
