BIOGRAPHY

I am 17 years old and I live in saint malo, a small town in the northwest of France where I train once a week, I started the FPV racing in 2015 having first made the RC airplane from 2012 to install the FPV above in 2015 after discovering videos on YouTube, I decided in June to mount my first racer and make my first race in September 2015 I then started the international competition in 2016 by the World Drone Awards held in Dubai. I have the same year finish 2nd in the championship of France and 1st Junior. I participated in many international competitions FAI (Spain, Portugal, China, Korea, France) which allowed me to place 3rd in 2017 in the general classification and 1st in junior. I fly mostly in the race and very little in freestyle because I love the competition, race with other drivers for maximum adrenaline, I love competing to meet new drivers, fly with them and enjoy a great atmosphere in the FPV community. I am in high school in a sector that allows me to use programs that we use in the FPV racing, which allow me to create my own parts, … I like to try to improve things, find the best possible solution to make the drone more reliable, simpler…
