A little bit more about Will Annison
How I see BFPVRA benefiting drone racing: Growing drone racing, enabling clubs to put on the best events they can for all pilots at all levels. More packs flown equals more happy pilots!
Favourite racing moment(s): Realising I had somehow made it to the A final and looking at the pilots I was up against thinking I have no hope here… and then not coming last in the final crossed the line in 4th best result ever such a good day!
Best memory of a crash: Doing a lot of race control means I get to see lots of crashes but one that has stood out was Jacob Blakemore trying to victory powerloop the finish gate… and ploughing into it at full tilt.
Any other drone related hobbies: whoops, wings, cars… if I can strap a camera to it and fly / drive it I’m going to do it! I also love tinkering and making stuff and FPV is an inspiration for this.
