    Team Echelon - "The Chronicles" - SUBSCRIBE NOW!! EPICNESS INSIDE!!

    WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE’RE DOING

    We’re RC hobbyists from the San Francisco Bay Area who enjoy all things FPV (First Person View). Our focus is based on refining the art and science of team based FPV for a range of applications from fun and entertainment, to productive and potentially helpful to the community in search/rescue & disaster relief support.

    Safety is important to us and we conduct our projects in a safe manner at all times. If there are questions of safety we do not proceed. We believe FPV setups when built and controlled correctly can be one of the safest facets of the RC world, and pride ourselves on making safe and reliable rigs and using them in a safe manner. Collectively we have over 5 years of FPV experience, one member is a full scale licensed pilot, and all have personally built the rigs we control.

    Flying with Randy

    This thread ought to alleviate my constant posting on the photo contest page

    Randy is the best lead pilot.... what does it take to be a great lead formation pilot? Consistent flying (no up, down, left, right, faster, slower without saying it in advance or knowing the chase pilot will get it), trust, and the balls to let someone else fly inches off your hip trying to get as close as he can without destroying any of the planes.

    Some close flying:

    We're practicing more this weekend and preparing for our official missions, which will be revealed after they are completed. ;-)

    Here was a shot from 2 weeks ago when we flew giving some locals a photo op in tight formation past:


    From the same day with Randy in chase behind me:

    "Objects in mirror are closer than they appear" - I tell Randy "Hold it, moving in closer". Looking backwards as I move in he replies "Are you gonna land on me?".



    We can do better.
