    ^ yeah these guys are gonna ruin it for us. A lot of guys barely come into this hobby and are racing experts and really don't give a shit about this hobby, only want sponsors and $ free shit.

    Ruin what? Your day, mood, sex life? Or maybe your entire weekend until Monday? Well, not this hobby definitely... In fact, FPV racing has the most chance to change public's opinion from "evil spying drones" to "recreational hobby/sport".
    If you're a noob, copy 1:1 what somebody already flies without too much questions, you'll find the answers later.

    sounds like simple jealousy to me. some guys are just better on the sticks than others. if you could get someone to pay you for doing what you love, wouldn't you?.

    While I believe FPV racing will never be a major sporting event it does help to mainstream the hobby away from the evil killing babies and spying drone syndrome so common in many shallow minds nowadays.

    I just got into FPV racing this year. Why? I like flying courses with my mini-quads. Do I do it to be competitive with others? No. I do it to complete with myself; I got three laps in in the last round, maybe I can get in four without crashing this time. Do I aspire to go to regional or national events or complete for money? NFW. I find the organized venue of the local hobbyist races a great way to have fun and get to fly courses with other pilots. That's it. So there are commercial races; so we'll see it on TV. Big deal. That's different thing altogether in my book.

    I've been a very avid skier since I was a kid. There are millions of recreational skiers. Ever local mountain has what they call "beer-league" races where hundreds of skiers race on Tuesday night or Saturday morning. Do any of those sports skiers aspire to be Ted or Lindsey? No, of course not. But they all do like watching Ted and Lindsey on TV. And they like getting a couple timed runs with their buddies every week, then going in for a couple beers at the pub.

    who are you to say such things? Lots of people are passionate about the activities they do. It's a lifestyle to them. For example...

    hunting
    mountain biking
    running
    off-roading
    bird watching
    photography
    golf
    scuba diving
    ...
    ...

    To the soul is spiritual, not passionate, unless someone kneels beforth the representation of FPV as of his Lord, it is not soulful and if one does he is in my opinion, truly effed up.
