I grew up in the beautiful city of Salzburg and was already interested in technical things as a child because my father had repaired and built many things himself. He has learned me a lot that I can implement today. My mother has always been very creative and always pushed me and my brothers and sisters to try new things.
My uncles have always done model-making and have started my passion for model making. I built model cars and planes as a teenager and when I saw a youtube video of an FPV race in 2017, I was instantly hooked and infected with the “first-person-view” virus.
At the beginning of 2017, I have started reading and collecting all the information I can get about building a racing drone. After a few days, I built my first own copter. It was great to fly something I have made myself and it was really fast and thrilled me. First I have started freestyle flying and after a few weeks, I already registered for my first FPV race. Since then I had nothing else in my head and just wanted to fly and train. In addition to my studies as a sports manager, I also did my first events and FunRaces.
8 months later, I quit my job and started working in a specialist shop for FPV-Racing (RedBee) and I am very proud to have made my hobby into a profession now.
What i love the most is the fusion between virtual reality and real races. The technical know-how you need and the community behind the sport, makes FPV Racing such a great Hobby and in my case a really great profession.
I have made my Hobby into a profession; made a many FPV Events/Races and helped to organise them; 2017 and 2018 participating in 17 show races and events
