Team Pilots

Alongside Makeitbuildit running / providing assistance at events and donating prizes, we also have some team pilots, I'll let them introduce themselves.

Just before I do, I must say that whilst I am proud of their personal results in racing, that is not a drive for their sponsorship.  I am always impressed with how they help others and promote our great sport and hobby in a positive light, alongside the real feedback they give me on testing the Rotor Evolution products that I design and helping me constantly improve and drive them forward.

Age: 35

Location: Lifton, Devon

What got me into FPV:

I fly 3D helicopters and the group I fly with all started getting these mini quad things and told me I had to get one, I resisted for a while but eventually caved in and bought and built my first quad, Flying fpv started out as something to do to relax between brain frying heli flights, but the sensation of speed is addictive as hell and I'm hooked!


Flying Style:

Erratic bordering on dangerous with odd flashes of brilliance ;) (joking)

I'm more a racer than a freestyler but I want to improve my skills in all areas

What got me into FPV:

I started out in photography drones, I really just wanted to fly and make some cool videos. I soon found some videos on the internet of drones doing racing and I just had to get in to it. So I built a racing style drone for as cheap as I could and got it flying. At first FPV was difficult and took some getting used to but once I got used to it i was hooked. And now i really enjoy the thrill of racing round a track or getting a good flow in freestyle.


Flying Style:

I mostly race but i have recently been delving in to freestyle, I'm improving all the time but still striving for better flow and tricks.

Age: 28

Location: Hinckley, Leicestershire. 

What got me into FPV:

I've been into RC from the moment I could hold a control cars/helis/planes I have dabbled in them all. Then came drones. At first I started with a camera rig in 2015 thinking aerial photography would be awesome then got invited to a friendly race meet in March 2016 had to build a quad on a shoestring budget and was hooked from then on! Sold all my camera rigs to fund my racing and the endless repairs and upgrades of my then trusty zmr250


Flying Style:

I love to race and racing is where I get my rush. But freestyle flying with no competition in some really great spots can be just as fun.
