Hi All,
I had the great honour of meeting Sir David John White, OBE (Stage name David

Jason AKA Derek "Del Boy' Trotter from TV series 'Only fools and horses'. He was

such a great chap to meet and have a chat with and I jumped at the chance to show

him this new technology and hear his reactions to FPV Racing.

The plan was to stage a small race between myself and the biggest smile in FPV

'Badlands', I planned to stay close behind Badlands to get some awesome close

proximity shots. The wind was very strong and caused a few wobbles but the plan

went well and David got a smooth ride up until the end. Sadly a generator was

running near us which drowns some of the sound out.

DougC was acting as our spotter during this event with Mike Elliott adding some

commentary for the benefit of David. Thank you guys.
