Thread: Central Florida FPV Meet - February 2017

    Central Florida FPV Meet - February 2017

    It's time once again for the CFL FPV Meet, brought to you by ReadyMadeRC! That's right, one of the biggest and best FPV meets in North America is back for another round!

    We will once again be hosting this year's event at Camp Challenge. Not only is not only a nice large flying location, but it just happens to be attached to 43 acres of summer camp! That means things like cabins and bunks available to rent, real showers and bathrooms, pavilions, fire pits, nature trails, a playground, and all sorts of other fun stuff!

    We've also partnered with Easter Seals Florida, a charity dedicated to helping those with autism and other disabilities, to create an event that not only provides a great experience for us hobbyists, but also gives something back to the community, and helps promote the positive nature of the "drone" community. In this day and age, our hobby needs positive exposure, and we're working to drive that in central Florida. All net proceeds will be donated to help fund Camp Challenge and Easter Seals Florida.


    Dates

    Thursday, February 23rd - Sunday, February 26th


    Location

    Easter Seals Camp Challenge
    31600 Camp Challenge Rd
    Sorrento, FL 32776


    Registration Info

    Registration and additional meet information is available on the CFL FPV website at www.cflfpv.org.

    This meet typically sells out well in advance of the actual event, so get registered now and secure your spot!

    Facilities &
    Accommodations

    • Port-O-Potty’s will be provided on the flying field.
    • A food vendor will be onsite during the day.
    • Real bathrooms and showers will be available for attendees that are camping onsite in a tent or RV.
    • Onsite bunks will be available to rent (see below).


    Camping Onsite:

    • You may setup a tent or bring an RV. Note that the facility does charge a camping fee, but rates are reasonable and this fee provides a real shower and bathroom.
    • There are no water or electrical hookups, so plan to be self-sufficient during your time onsite. Water *may* be available in small quantities through the camp.
    • Bringing a generator with power to spare is the quickest way to make new friends and find yourself lord of your immediate area.


    Bunking Onsite:

    • Bunks will be available to rent in summer camp style cabins.
    • Each cabin is communal, and includes 8 to 15 bunks in 1 to 3 rooms.
    • Cabins include electricity, air conditioning (yes, you may need it in February in FL), and 2 to 3 bathrooms with showers.
    • Bringing the whole club, or a group of friends? Contact us directly if you're interested in reserving an entire cabin just for your group!



    Actual bunk photo. You provide the snazzy bed covering!


    Staying onsite may not afford all the luxuries of a fancy hotel, but it is far more economical, and ensures that you'll be there to enjoy all of the late night activities! Want to be a beta tester for the hottest new FPV gadget? Having a compromising photo of your favorite sponsor is the best way to get in the club!

    Awesome. Glad to see the thread up!!

    Starting flying on weekends here to get warmed up. . . The third open fly get together is Saturday 1/14 9am till ??

    Flying at the Championss Gate field 10 miles west of Disney next Saturday am around 9:00am till??. Pre-meet open flying festivities. Photos of location here. Bring what you got. Looks like we have about 8 guys so far for Saturday and still all week for you to plan to go. No rules, no fees, just some open FPV fu*kery. Looks like we will have 5 Opterra's maybe 6 so if anybody can show up with an Inspire or good vid quad it may make for some really cool formation vids etc. We will get Pizza and refreshments delivered for lunch so just bring a cooler with a couple snacks or drinks if you want. See you there.

    I may well indeed, but can't do anything until after the meet. Prepping for it becomes a full time job for about three months. Ironically, holding the meet means that I fly less!

    Added some color and will be trying this gizmo I found. Its a 360 cam that is only 70 grams yet it films 3k 30FPS, PLUG N PLAY, the autostitching is actually decent quality also.
