064 CHARPU & GetFPV Interview: Race Quad Evolution

by FliteTest | March 1, 2015 | (10) Posted in Podcasts

We had an amazing opportunity to hang out with Charpu, Tim Nilson, Andy Graber and Fred Provost (FlyingMonkey) in Florida near the main offices of GetFPV. So the natural course of action was to open up and share the discussion with you for the podcast!


Audio Link

We talk shop with Charpu about how he got started flying and the what the secret is to  become such a gifted RC FPV pilot in under a year. 

We also talk to Tim and Andy about how they got their start in the hobby and the humble origions of their now massively successful business. With the lighting speed that the multirotor industry is advancing it is very interesting to look back at where it's come from and what the very exciting future holds. 

Have an idea for who should be on the podcast?
