FPV (First Person View) quadcopter racing is one of the fastest growing segments in RC. And Spektrum™ technology is at the forefront of this thrilling new sport, setting the pace for signal speed, precision and security. To prove it, Horizon Hobby is launching Team Spektrum FPV – a group of some of the world’s best FPV pilots, all equipped with the latest Spektrum control systems and gear.
Team manager, Steve Petrotto, describes the mission of the team.
“Nowhere is the superb response and rock-solid signal security of a Spektrum system better demonstrated than in an FPV race. You’ve got these ballistic little quadcopters screaming around a tight course with all kinds of RF noise in the background. But a lot of guys who get into FPV don’t come through traditional hobby channels, so they’re unaware of Spektrum technology. They usually end up using whatever the forums tell them to use. We’re here to show them there’s a better way.”
