FPV Drone flying

I’ve been thinking about starting up FPV Drone flying at the squadron and wondered if anyone has any advice/experience/thoughts about anything (dangerous I know)

RAFAC and CAA guidance and the “Drone Code” don’t apply to indoor flying of drones, so I was looking at getting a few FPV kits such as the BetaFPV Cetus Kit. then setting out courses around a classroom to fly and do time-trials etc

Anyone have any thoughts or advice? Know any discounts of better value kits?

Really good fun. If indoors the fun police can’t get you.

I’ve known of one or two that feel a bit sick on the goggles, but that is the exception not the rule.

Fantastic for “serious” teaching of principles of flight, balancing forces etc etc - or to just let loose and have some fun.

We set up in a large hall some obstacle courses for our mini 2’s and had them race each other.

For the very minor expense of 1 set of blades on a very small bump it was well worth it - cadets had a great time.

They look pretty awesome.

Think I’d buy a few extra sets of batteries.

This is good advice. Our mini 2 we got the extra 3 bay charging battery packs for each drone. Works well.
