Giggity! Get your Passports! The @FatsharkRC Drone Olympics are coming to Canada August 19-21, 2016! Details soon. t.co/op8SLUFaKh
@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?
@TimKidwell @FPVracingevents so the question is how do we make this exciting? My GTI has a special sound booster in sport mode. Hmmmm
@FPVracingevents @missenghwyoming OTH, IDRA and DR1 are nigh impossible to watch.
@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 I'm twisting this particular puzzle every which way. My team and I would love to discuss where it's going.
@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 @FPVracingevents We definitely don't want to mix those two in this industry!
@TimKidwell @missenghwyoming I definitely like your on-point assessment
@TimKidwell @missenghwyoming for sure. As of today that's still identity and direction. Then.... a million others.
@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
