        Another great app to use for finding other drone pilots....Drone Nation! A fellow FPVer designed an app for reaching out to other pilots. It is really simple to use and has helped me meet over 20 pilots in the few months I've used it O.o!
        In fact I think you briefly plugged this app in one of your live chats, I gave it a look see and have been diggin it

                Any time you have more than like three or four people, you will be spending some time waiting. In that situation you have to enjoy the social aspect as much as the flying.

                  I don't think you realize how well this is hitting the community, POSITIVELY! and I am very happy to announce the 2nd Chapter in this KS area approved by MultiGP who at first had denied the application due to the MO, Kansas City locations over there being 60-70 miles away...."Thank you for your interest in launching a MultiGP Drone Racing chapter in your area, however, there is currently a chapter operating near your location. We try to not have too many in one location because we have found that it decreases the overall strength of our already established chapters.
                  So I responded with "Respectfully there is only one in Salina Kansas the others are in Missouri, we need more in Kansas, that's why I'm trying to start a Kansas chapter that's literally Southwest by quite a bit. The other two multigp chapters that are both in Kansas City this is not in Kansas City this is 40+ miles away and in Kansas not Missouri, so please reconsider I spoke with the city administrator today about also building wind tunnels for testing UAV as well...and we're trying to find a way get some land dedicated to these events. I live in Spring Hill, Kansas the closest multigp event is in Kansas not Missouri, Salina, KS which is several hours away so once again please reconsider we would like to have a chapter in Kansas on the northern side thank you. " And wouldn't ya know after listening to Bardwell, and pleading my case, we are now on the was their response. "Justin,
                  Your application to launch Four Winds Innovations FPV has been approved.

                  Welcome to the MultiGP Drone Racing family!

                  You are now part of the largest and fastest growing drone racing league in the world. As a Chapter Organizer, you are the face of drone racing in your community. Running a competitive drone racing group can be very rewarding, but with some organization and help from us, you are on your way to running a successful MultiGP Drone Racing Chapter.

                      Hello from Spain JB, in relation to this subject you should definitely check out the DFL project, it look “AWESOME!!!” like you say on the others side of the pound, it’s an (Pokémon style app) FPV style...
                      The idea is brillant if you could give them an hand by bringing the light on them it will be GREAT...

                                ​@Joshua Bardwell I never really lived in Wyoming.. I spent some time there in my teens, but that was long before there was an internet or I was living in Arizona when I started working with AirVuz and living in Cali since I've been with Foxeer and CNHL.. Either way, thanks for including me in your video. :)

                              I would like other people to fly with IF we all had hi end VTXs with very good channel separation. I would not be very happy about flying with 25 mw unless the reception could still be pretty good. I tried 200 mw flying by myself and did not like the increased static and breakup compared to say 400 or 600 mw. For those of us in remote or BACKWARD locations with too much INBREEDING, we still are very fortunate to have AMAZING PEOPLE like YOU and others to help us along! I'm winking at you super cool JB!

                                        Haven't even watched more than the intro yet, but thanks man, looking forward to this, even though being in the SF bay area I probably don't have to look that hard for people interested. finding legal places to fly is harder since there are airports every 3.5 meters here it seems.

I'm trying to set RSSI on my jumper t8sg V2 plus radio. However, I can't figure out as there is not much video out here. Could you do a video for setting up with frsky receiver? Thanks alot

My site is nowhere near as popular as the multigp one, but I'm taking a different angle - I hope that people would share YouTube footage links or even Instagram pictures with other people, on the map I've developed. If this comes off as too much self promotional, feel free to delete it, but I make no profit from my site and I built it for the community and cause I love FPV <3.

I actually live in Cheyenne Wy. and I can confirm that there isn't a whole lot of FPV in Wyoming mostly because of the wind. Although Colorado is only 30 miles away and the scenery is amazing So I think that's where I'm going to spend my summer!!
