    Almost all "sports" have a hobby and a competition group. One is for the enjoyment of most. One is for people that like to compete. For me personally, I've always found that I don't particularly enjoy competing. It places my ability to perform above the pure enjoyment of what I'm doing. Funny thing is, I find that even though I'm not competing against others I'm always competing against myself and trying to improve. I don't think that one group is more or less legitimate than the other, just different.

    I don't see any reason to be upset about, everything evolves including hobbies. There was a time when racing cars was a hobby for like-minded people, now Formula-1 and other leagues rolls in millions, and there are still people that build and race their cars at a track just for fun. What's the fuss here with FPV racing? You want to have fun in a park- go and do it, you want money and fame- off you go. Don't want to join any leagues- don't do it, obviously no one is forcing anybody to do anything...
    If you're a noob, copy 1:1 what somebody already flies without too much questions, you'll find the answers later.

    Leave it to the guy with a fretsaw in one hand and a Guinness in the other to talk sense. Well said, Robo.
    Shut up and fly.

    +1 on that Robo. I am not sure there is enough reason to write a manifesto about its stupidity. It is just another branch of an interesting hobby with its own set of advantages and dis-advantages. What I am not sure about is why Squishy thought it necessary to let us know why he has such a strong opinion either way. He seems really upset with racing and the crowed it draws. I value opinions and their authors though even if they are not my own views. God knows I have my own......LOL I am not a racer nor do I want the fame from it but man I wish I could fly like those guys! Who doesn't wish that?

    I'm sorry but I just assumed you were. I just thought the pubs there had internet like the coffee shops here. I thought you were just another Irishman at the pub with his laptop.......Now I have to rethink what I think about you......

    Nah...who brings a fretsaw to a pub? That would just be weird -- the Guinness is in your shop, right?
