A little bit more about Gavin Syme

I have been messing about with drones since the end of 2016, starting with terrible toys and micro drones to begin learning as I had not been into any flying rc previously, when I finally got a full size mini quad I knew I wanted to get into racing, I have spent a lot of time trying to get the Edinburgh racing community moving and putting on races and have been helping out with the last couple SDRL events (Scottish Nationals). For the future I’m hoping to speak to all the groups of Scottish racers and try bring them together and work together to make a stronger Scottish racing scene.
