Venue Safety and Pilot Guidelines
(FPV Fun-Fly Rules) 

Safety is the responsibility of EVERY pilot whether flying, spotting, or observing. Safety must be the number one priority when holding an FPV event. Aircraft can cause injury if rules are not followed or if they are flown recklessly. Rules must be followed at all times to ensure that pilots, spectators or passers-by are not at risk of being injured. 

  • Listen and follow ALL instructions from the Event Director or their designees.
  • Know the location of the first aid kit.
  • Fly only in designated areas.  Fly only at appropriate times.
  • While flying, keep your craft at least (30) feet away from the pilot area. Flying any closer can cause your video transmitter to interfere with other pilot’s reception.
  • When possible, land in the designated landing area on the course/field (at least 30 feet away from the pilot area)
  • When flying on the course/field, you must be positioned within the designated Pilot Area. DO NOT fly from any other area.
  • Only power up your multirotor/video transmitter while in the Start/Finish area on the course or in the general flight area of the field. DO NOT power up in the pits, parking area, or while walking from the pits to the course.
  • If you need to check your video channel or change frequency, this MUST be completed between designated flight times.
  • You MUST ensure you have a Spotter in the Pilot Area while flying. A Spotter observes the area for dangers such as members of public, animals, other model fliers, low flying aircraft or vehicles.
  • Spotters stand in the Pilot Area to ensure clear communication.
  • Please see AMA DOCUMENT #550 for general requirements and limitations of FPV operation.

Venue Safety and Pilot Guidelines
(RACE EVENT RULES)

Safety is the responsibility of EVERY pilot whether flying, spotting, or observing. Safety must be the number one priority when holding an FPV racing event. Aircraft can cause injury if rules are not followed or if they are flown recklessly. Rules must be followed at all times to ensure that pilots, spectators or passers-by are not at risk of being injured.

Treasure Coast Multirotor and FPV is a local chapter of the MultiGP Drone Racing League. All point races and practice races will be coordinated using the MultiGP frequency management system (app/web based). If you plan on participating in a race event, please join MultiGP and create a pilot profile (www.mutigp.com). This will allow you to sign in to events prior to arrival. You will be assigned a frequency when you “check-in” to events. Please check-in prior to arriving on site (this can even be done the night before) and set your assigned multirotor and google frequency.
