Hello from Colchester

Hello :slight_smile:

I am Tristan (33) from Colchester. I have been in to RC since I was 10. I used to race 1/10th scale electric cars. I got my first quad in my mid teens. A dragon flyer. I have drifted in and out of RC for many years. Built a few quadcopters in the past. I had some spare time recently and thought I would build another. Its using the Rush FPV stack with iflight 1408 motors and Geprc 3 inch frame. Over the past week I was able to fly it in a big field, I am still on a high on how much fun it was. Which has led me to reach out if any other flyers are in Colchester and see about potential clubs. I have mainly only flown line of sight. I have dabbled in FPV, but plan on getting far more involved in the coming months.

Look forward to all the information and chats.
