iBcrazy and Bond jr. (Alex and Jeremiah) join the Flite Test crew for a fun obstacle course challenge made out of pool noodles (aka: woggles).

 The woggle course consists of pool noodles and pvc pipe setup around the yard in random arch shapes.

For this low pass challenge FPV challenge the crew put together these perfectly shaped arches for the flying wings to pass under.Josh is flying an old Stryker that has had it's nose cut off and has seen its share of crashes.Jeremiah (Bond jr.) is flying the Swift II Retro Blue paint scheme.David has a Turnigy Tek Sumo, but he setup his flying wing with a little something more.To helps stabilize the wing, David setup the Tek Sumo with a KK2 Flight Control Board with Open Aero setup. Alex (iBcrazy) is flying the Tech One Pop Wing.

Flying completely FPV the woggle course turned out to be challenging and fun.

Flying wings were everywhere! Other than to simply try to keep your airplane in the air and fly through as many arches as possible, there wasn't any specific rules.

Everyone had their own strategy, but Alex seemed to be having the most success.

What was his strategy? Aim for David.

Special thanks to iBcrazy and Bond jr. for stopping by and helping with this challenge.

An other great show. I think it is so great having other people into the hobby on to your show. Alex and Jeremiah both have great youtube channels that add so much to this hobby, would love to see them on another episode.
What camera's are used? I have been using my Gopro, but have problems with close range perspective.

do a fpv contest like the "outback Joe"' challenge in Australia. On a smaller scale.

The most noticeable thing here is FPV camera VS GoPro camera for Video

Ditch the GoPro-Video out - go FPV camera all the way.

Get David some 50 SPF sunscreen, his rosy cheeks are starting to look like Santa's!
