Guys I'd like to assemble a micro motor fpv team and you're all invited to participate. Flying micro multirotors is really a unique experience compared to the bigger birds and I think it would be great for us to band together and showcase exactly why this is most likely the future of this hobby. Not just because of FAA restrictions but because it opens up so many more flying spaces, is significantly safer, and less obtrusive to the space your flying in. And let's face it - these things still rip!
So, regardless of your skill level - I invite you to join this team and participate in editing and uploading flight videos, vlogging, build videos, anything micro related. Some of you may be better on the build bench than in the air, some of you may be better at editing, some of you may enjoy talking to the camera about micros, and some of you just flat out rip balls. All are welcome to be a team pilot.
Logistically this is how this will work. I will create a YouTube brand channel and issue management status of the channel to our team pilots. This will allow you to upload and edit as you please. We can explore monetization of the channel as a group and for the benefit of the group (or at least so we can uoload custom video icons). With this format of videos coming from a group of team pilots, subscribers will be able to enjoy a variety of content with multiple styles. That should keep the channel fresh and also promote our own learning experiences from each other. Rules will be simple - don't break the law or do anything stupid on video & keep your props at or under 3 inches!
NotFasEnuf custom whoop canopies will be the team's first sponsor and I will allocate ebay earnings to outfit the team in shirts and hats with our name and logo. That will take a little time to accumulate those funds so it will be clear who is participating to be awarded gear. I will also solicit sponsorship from other vendors in the hobby if we kick this thing off strong.
With team participation, I am confident that we could produce amazing content that is more regularly released and better networked than anything we could do working alone. I've always wanted to be a sponsored team pilot (even if on a small scale) - how about you?
Ok, that's my pitch... any takers? We need a name and a logo and some eager participants! Open to voting on a name...
(And yes I feel kind of like an 8 year old kid making up an imaginary club ... but it was fun then and seems like it could be now too)
