Default How do I tell kids not to mess with me.

I am a 12 year old boy. Every time I am flying my TREX 600 Nitro with FPV Goggles along with my best friend (she is 12 now), the neighbourhood bullies start pulling my Fat Shark Teleporter V5What do I do?


Last time, there was a near miss as I was on a buddy cord and my friend managed to land it and run away .

I have a TREX 600
with a Spectrum Dx6i
and an fpv setup with a Fat Shark Teleporter V5 and a cheapo monitor

Default Need a different flying site...

First impression I had was a dad wanting some alone time but can see you definitely have an issue if the Trex gets out of control due to someone else messing around while you're airborne. If you have another person/parents that can give you some transportation to another location, that might be your only option as I have seen and experienced what a large size heli can do if getting out of your control. Not much you can do about the other kids unfortunately unless they find something else to catch their interest otherwise they might end up with a major injury needing many stitches or worse. Definitely respect your flying the 600 under the goggles but you definitely need a safe place to fly with your friend and no one messing with your gear while flying. Wish you the best of luck and keep it up, I've been addicted to flying fpv ever since the equipment came available.

Scott.

IF you were flying at an AMA sanctioned field this would not be an issue. But if you can't go to the field, perhaps you can bring the field to you. And by that I mean to say, contact a local flying club and see if you can get a bit of help from a member to stand with you while you fly. A few times with an adult around might put an end to the problem. And perhaps the bullies might get to know the club members too. Just a thought.
