    NEFPV in conjunction with TBRC are very excited to announce:

    THE 5th Annual North American FPV Meet!

    Date: August 13-16, 2015
    Location: Stephentown, NY (about 40 minutes East of Albany in upstate, NY)

    [​IMG]

    In the tradition of a true Continental FPV Meet, NAFPV 2015 will be hosted by the NEFPV crew in Upstate New York. We are honored to work with our brothers at Team Basement RC up in Canada to bring you the fifth iteration of this fantastic tradition. We only hope to live up to the precedent set forth by all our Northern friends. We are aiming high and hope that you all will come join us to fly or just be part of one of the most awesome FPV gatherings on North America! Last year, the event was held outside of Toronto, Canada. This year, it is in our beautiful backyard in the mountains of Upstate, New York, USA!

    NAFPV 2015 is an FPV event for FPV pilots and builders, by FPV pilots and builders. Our goal is to host an amazing event where pilots and enthusiasts can get together to share time in the air, on the field, and in the workshop. We want to create a place where enthusiasts come to have a great time, meet some insanely great people, and learn something about FPV. Our schedule and activities will provide free-flight time, scheduled race and competition events, pilot & product demonstrations, workshops, night-flying fun, and plenty of social time and camaraderie. We may even serve poutine in honor of our Canadian friends! [​IMG] Along the way, we will have prizes and raffles as provided by our many, generous sponsors.

    NEFPV is incredibly proud to be bringing you this event. What is NEFPV? Who cares. But we are hosting NAFPV 2015, so we have to reveal something I guess. We are a group of FPV enthusiasts residing mostly in North East, USA, who gather to plan, build, fly, drink and learn. We have many well known pilots and engineers in our ranks, and we strive to educate and fly with anyone and everyone. Our FPVLab thread, Checking in from NorthEast US (http://link.NEFPV.com) is one of the most active on the Lab and is full of valuable information and helpful discussion and open for anyone (from anywhere) to participate.

    Lots more information to come. For now, we want you to save the date and start making plans to attend. Open registration will start soon. You can sign-up at our website to be notified prior to the official opening of registration. Pilot slots will be limited so make sure you sign-up for notification and register quickly when it opens.

    Information will be published here and on the official NAFPV 2015 website: http://NAFPV2015.com

    Sure did. NAFPV is not strictly a racing event but there will be plenty of races.
