Name: Kyle McBride

Pilot Name: Kmac

How did you get into FPV Racing: I began my FPV journey with a Cheerson CX-10 in late 2017. I stumbled across Rotor Riot and became obsessed with the content they created. I build my first drone later that month and have never looked back.

What club do I race with: I currently race with FPVR Outer Heaven, Northern Beaches Drone Crew and FPVR Gosford.

Current Race Setup: I am currently running the Transtec Laser S, T-Motor F60 Pro v2, HolyBro Metal F3 ESC, Flightone Revolt OSD, Caddx SDR2 Race, TBS Crossfire, TBS Unfiy 5v and Gemfan 5149.

Current Freestyle Setup: I am currently running the Transtec Freedom, T-Motor F60 Pro v2, HolyBro F3 Slim ESC, HolyBro Kakute F7, Caddx SDR2 Race, TBS Crossfire, TBS Unfiy 5v and Gemfan 5149.

How long have you been flying FPV drone for: Close to 2 years.

Tips for those getting into FPV: First buy Velocidrone or another FPV Simulator and a cheap radio that can connect to the computer. Fly the simulator for a month or so to find out if you truly enjoy FPV, then watch hours of YouTube videos and build your first FPV drone!
