FPV workshop session in Durban

Postby JohanMoelich » Sat Sep 22, 2012 4:54 pm

I will be presenting an FPV workshop (show and tell) for anyone in the Durban area who is interested in learning more about this fascinating part of the RC hobby. There are so many options and things to consider that chances are good you will buy equipment which will end up in a bin.

I'm not an expert but I have been in the FPV game since 2008 so I've made my mistakes and learned from it. Hopefully I can help others to avoid those mistakes I've made! I'm active on the FPV forums daily, so I'm also up to date with the newest trends and technologies available.

The workshop will be in the form of a 2-3 hour discussion which will include the following topics:
    Introduction to FPV
    Basic equipment needed
    Different video/radio frequencies and what to use
    Airplanes and multirotors suitable for FPV use
    Video intereference and how to avoid it
    Advanced / optional FPV equipment
    Costs
I will also be showing various FPV videos throughout the discussion, and bring my FPV equipment with.

The workshop will be held in Glen Anil, Durban, at my workplace. It is free for anyone who is interested in FPV, or already involved in FPV.

What I need to know is when will be a convenient day and time for everyone. I was thinking Saturday morning or afternoon on the 6th of August. Please let me know if you are interested, and if the date will suit you.

Perhaps I should create an events section?

That's a good idea! I'm sure we will have FPV meets in future which can also go in that section.

Hey Johan

This is a good idea, you can count me in. I'll also spread the word my side.

Excellent, I've added you on the list for 13 October. Time will be 2pm.
If you want to bring your quad so there's more variety to look at, that will be great!

So far there's 5 people confirmed, and I'm expecting more this week when people get back to work and read their emails.
