Racing with Team Black Sheep @ Drone Nationals & Hovership Frame Sponsorship.

The great people over at Hovership have sponsored me with several frames to fly with in the upcoming competition after they heard I wrecked my previous air-frames in practice.  They’re amazing frames and have a lot of solid configurations, have been flying with the Zuul Superbeast before being given their frames to fly with. 

I’ll be flying as a Multirotor Superstore pilot on Team BlackSheep at the US Drone Nationals this coming week, should make for an epic collaboration! It’ll be exciting to fly with one of the most notorious names in FPV, and along side some of the best pilots in the world.  A documentary crew will be following me around for a couple days of the madness next week- It’s shaping up to be a lot of fun. With my new 3D Freetstyle skills and Zuul race rigs I’ll have a solid chance at winning both the Freestyle & Racing competitions

Hexinair interviewed at & Freestyle Competition at US Drone Nationals

Elizabeth Ciobanu has interviewed me over at discussing how I got started, and what Hexinair is all about.  It’s the first official announcement that I’ll be competing in the Freestyle Competition at the US Drone Nationals along with 5 other highly skilled pilots that I’m honored to fly against, including Ummagawd and FinalGlideAUS. It should be a lot of fun, and I’m hoping that I’ll have enough time to prepare something special for the event. My promo video for the event is about the go live, hope it’ll be up on soon. 

Coming up In the edit bay is my first week with the Zuul Superbeast, got some neat shots in-between it misbehaving while I’ve been tuning it out. Have had a lot of fun with it. This weekend will be another pre-race practice event up in Berkeley that I’ll be getting some footage of, expect it to get posted soon. 

US Drone National Championship & Multirotor Superstore Sponsorship!

Today I am proud to officially announce sponsorship by Multirotor Superstore! With them backing my flying I’ll be able to take things to new heights! In preparation for the US Drone National Championship I’ll be dedicating the next two months to perfecting my skills with a quad-copter. In the meantime I’ve edited together a small demo reel of old footage for my first sponsored video. It’s been fun to go back and see how I’ve advanced over the last several months:D


Winning the AMA Sanctioned FPV Race @ Drone X Data Conference in Santa Cruz

My win of the race was covered by, the Santa Cruz Sentinel, SFist. Since winning  a lot has happened. I’ve talked with Kextrel, Parrot, FGI, & Multirotor Superstore. Among a long list of others that attended the Drone X Data Conference. It’s been a lot of fun, and I’ve enjoyed talking with everyone I’ve met!  I love FPV & Mulitorotors -so this last week has been truly an experince to not forget 😀

It’s only going to get better. I’ll be flying at the California State Fair this July, more details soon.  I’ll also be at the West Coast FPV Meetup in October at the Santa Cruz Fairgrounds. Also excited to soon announce my first sponsor – with more to come! Exciting times – I’ll be able to do more of what I love for those that appreciate it. Hope to have a proper demo-reel out soon.

Hexinair will be getting a couple of updates including an expanded Resource & FAQ section & Learning to Fly FPV Guide.  I’ll also be working on a new build log for a prototype frame that’s been given to me to test out – I’ll be posting it to the Hexinair blog. It’ll hopefully be out in time for some summer racing fun on 4s!

Gearing Up.

I fly a lot, almost every day. While out flying I meet a lot of awesome people that I’ve shared goggle time with and are interested in getting into the hobby; it can be a bit overwhelming!With this website I hope to promote the hobby that I’m passionate about locally and do it in a safe manner; all while showing off the amazing locations to fly at nearby in Santa Cruz.

Without airports, restrictive laws, and featuring plenty of beautiful open spaces it makes Santa Cruz and the surrounding area one of the best places to fly at in the world. If you’re interested in getting into the hobby check out the FAQ / Parts & Resources pages. I’ll be filling it out with a good run down of everything people need to know to get started.

Thank you for your time – please call me at (831) 316-4879 if you have any questions, would like a private demo, advice, build services, or if you have something interesting you want a fly-through film of! (As of right there is no charge for filming due to FAA regulations, just looking for something fun and awesome to film!)
