I'll never forget! X Class @ West Coast Throwdown 2018

I haven't had this much fun in a long time, and I can't wait to go back! Carpooled all the way to Whistler's Bend in Oregon for the West Coast Throwdown 2018 with my buddy SparkyJosh. I quickly learned that X-Class is like family, as I watched fellow completing pilots help each other out. Then on the day of the X-Class races, Zoe lent me one of her rigs and said "Don't crash". Well I took that advise to heart (and the going slow through the trees), and managed to get 1st place in X-Class racing! I don't think I've won 1st place in anything since the 4th grade, and it left me in disbelief the entire rest of the trip, like did that really all happen? Pinch check yep, others confirming memories, check, picture and video proof, holy heck it was all real, and will be a weekend I'll never forget.

I can't say thank you enough to everyone, from the sponsors, to the other pilots whom made this event what it is, and I can't wait till next year.

Special thanks to Team Dysonian, and Zoe, for having faith, and lending me a rig that made the win possible. I'd also like to thank Krittur and DWreck for contributing their drone footage featured in this video.

Car Week Drift Party | Drift Central

First and foremost, I would like to thank the drivers, for without them and their passion as well, this video wouldn't be possible.

Once again, Drift Central has thrown together another great event #CarweekDRIFTParty! Would you believe, it's been a whole year since I found out about these events and started going, and what great way to start things off is with a whole new drone! Let's just say, my previous rig felt like I was flying a tank (and it might as well be) compared to this one. The amount of power and agility available is definitely a different experience that I could get used to. It is an ultralight rig hauling around a Hero6 with 2306 2150kv motors, and 6" HQ 6045 V1S Blade Props on 5s HV batteries. 😍

Is it the tinkerer, or the artist in myself that I causes my self striving to "perfect" and be overcritical of things? I think it might be a little bit of both. As with all my edits, a lot of time and passion is put into these videos, this one is no exception, so if you truly enjoyed this production, please let me know below! (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

P.S. Hope you like the new outro 💣 😉

Independence Drift | Drift Central

Another great event by Drift Central! I am so fortunate that they hold these events every month! Did you know? I can hear these events from my house, both exhaust and screeching tires! This event was no exception! It was a blast to chase everyone around, and I have to admit, the flag was an epic touch, that I hope ya'll enjoy!

Off the Grid

Having a life that revolves around technology, some times, you just have to go off the grid, so I took the family, we ventured out into the wilderness, and here is where we stopped.

Stay tuned (subscribe/follow), as that reservoir will definitely be revisited for some longer range shenanigans 😉

Summertime DRIFTness | Drift Central

This was definitely a fun event, got to chat with both new and old faces. Now armed with 3 actions cameras, a handheld electronic gimbal for my cell, and a DSLR, this made for a very interesting production, as you will soon see... Enjoy!

Notes: As with most of these video's, winds are generally 15mph plus, and if you follow my Instagram/Facebook, this was shot with my "Deadpool" build, details below.
