My name is Megan, I'm 27 years old and I'm from Minneapolis, Minnesota. My passion is in art and cooking, I have my bachelor's in fine art, but I started flying fpv mini quads in October 2015 and it's truly changed my life. I was introduced to mini quads when my boyfriend began building and flying them, and so I became his designated spotter and I went out flying with him on a near daily basis. I wasn't initially convinced it was something I could ever see myself participating in, but once I started learning to fly I discovered that I had a sort of naturally ability to fly the quad and I was able to progress fairly quickly.

The thing I enjoy most about flying fpv is the separation of your mind from your body that you can achieve. Once you get to a place where you're in control and you feel confident in your flying, you can really begin to use your flights as a form of expression and flying fpv becomes this incredible creative outlet for you. I'm definitely excited to see the progression of freestyle fpv as a form of art, but the idea of fpv racing as a spectator sport is also very intriguing. These two facets of fpv sort of balance each other out, so the hobby has a lot of potential to become this really well-rounded creature that offers something for everyone.
