@FPVracingevents @missenghwyoming All I'm saying is that there are big challenges to overcome for FPV to be something more than R/C racing.

@FPVracingevents @missenghwyoming FPV racing isn't embedded in U.S. or Canadian culture. In fact, many people don't like the idea of drones.

@FPVracingevents @missenghwyoming It took NASCAR decades to reach its pinnacle, and that was with embedded culture--cars and booze.

@FPVracingevents @missenghwyoming That's a "build it and they will come" attitude. It works in movies, but not often in reality.

@missenghwyoming @FPVracingevents But how to capture that audience? Right now, the space is fractured and no one know what's going on.

@missenghwyoming @FPVracingevents I think it's about accessibility. I'm sure people will watch. People watch DotA2 and LoL. Why not this?

@FPVracingevents @missenghwyoming When you look at DRL right now, the site is stagnant. No date for Level 2 release. Slick looking vids tho.

@FPVracingevents @missenghwyoming How does FPV go big? How does it go from niche to mainstream? It has to reach more than an online audience

@TimKidwell @missenghwyoming there are visionaries in every industry. We're still in our infancy. But I'm anxious as well. It's fast growing

@TimKidwell @missenghwyoming not really. There's a lot going on that a lot of us are not aware of. Not that we're all sitting complacent
