FPV Close Proximity Gate Practice With Race Drone And Hard Crashes



Pulled off a few good moves, as well as some nasty crashes.
Put up some double gates this weekend at the house, used wooden stakes for frame and wrapped with pool noodles. The sides of the gates are exposed wood, so hitting the sides is not a good idea. The ground is also not very friendly, gravel driveway surrounded by hard packed dirt. Nowhere that is really “safe”.

Gates are wrapped in light strips for night flying with tiny whoop 🙂

Full open acro mode, no failsafes, accelerometer disabled.
