RMRC FPV Fest 2017 - FPV events bring out the best (or worst) in every pilot!
It all started on a Friday night at FPV Fest in 2017. The E-Flite Timber had just been "discovered" by the FPV Facebook groups and had turned into the plane that everyone wanted to bring to the event to fly it off the paved, full scale runway. As with most FPV events, adult beverages are a tradition after a long day of flying. Between the general socializing and tandem mini bike rides, Mike Snyder's Timber emerged from the flight line and everyone who didn't already own one, wanted to get their shot at flying it. As the lights from the construction generator buzzed and illuminated the scene, the Timber got passed around like a village bicycle and was flying wonderfully! Now, fresh from his ez-up tent, Michael Nieves wanted his shot at the Timber. It started out as any other flight, but after about half way through the pack, the Timber crashed into the pavement with a disheartening thud. As we walked over to inspect the damage, we quickly realized it was still air worthy and it was sent back into the air, only to be crashed again moments later while attempting an epic pass through a large quad gate. This amazed everyone in the group of pilots who were cheering and standing in a semi-circular crowd on the tarmac, except for the owner of the Timber. Eventually, after the 4th or 5th crash, luck ran out and the Timber was no longer able to take more abuse without practically a new Timber. Mike S was a great sport and played along well, but it was easy to sense the sadness in the air. Michael made it right by buying a new Timber the next day. - Waffle Ramblings #1
