The 1000th Instagram post, it's a long one sorry in advance!. I thought long and hard about what to do (which is why it's taken so long for it to be posted) - a collection of all the cool places flown, a collection of insane crashes, a photo gallery of all the cool places I've managed to fly & visit - but they all come down to one thing, my goals - both personally and when I setup this account in the first place.
Right when DRL was announced and everyone started talking about it I knew thats what I wanted to aim for. It's the premiere league of drone racing in every sense. Just like any serious racing pilot - you dedicate hours upon hours of time (and money) towards bettering your skills in the hope to somehow make it there. Instagram followers see the best of that content you make, but behind the scenes there's so much work, batteries flown, experimenting and time spent tinkering. It stops becoming a hobby, and it also becomes your job (or in my case my second job). So for me this post is a reflection on all of the crazy races I've been fortunate enough to compete in, the community, and the blood sweat & tears that have been poured into it by myself and by everyone else. I'm incredibly thankful for the people, my friends & family, the sponsors and the people behind those sponsors who have believed in me enough to support me.
Here's to the next 1,000 posts and to the continuation of trying to learn, educate, race and above all have fun in the drone racing scene! Many Racer 3 shells were harmed in the process, sorry!
