EDIT: The land has been secured! all future donations will go toward upkeep and obstacles for the park. thank you everyone!
Hi, I'm botgrinder, youtube personality and professional fpv pilot.
I have a dream to build a 10-acre freestyle fpv park
I want to build a freestyle park for everyone to enjoy, not just a few gates here and there but tall structures with dives all the way down, containers stacked up so we have power loops for days, faux building fronts like a hollywood set, dive gaps of all sizes and whatever else we want. an fpv freestyle paradise is what i want to build, drone Disney land in the woods AND I want it to be open to the public. This is where it will differ from other parks as it won't just be land someone owns and invites select people to i want the fpv community to use this land to build what THEY want to fly.
If you want to help make this dream a reality please donate to secure 10 acres of land in rural pa plus all real estate agent fees and taxes on the land, im hoping we make more then the goal since we will need money for supplies to build obstacles and for upkeep but id like to at least get the land for now so we can start building on it and figure out lumber and stuff later on.
If you do donate, i pledge to put your name somewhere in the park so everyone knows you helped make it possible, the plan as of now is for smaller donors to get a little plaque or something in one of the structures while larger donors get benches and obstacles named after them. if you help make this park a reality no matter the size of the contribution, you will be honored in the park somewhere because this will take all of us pitching in and i want to show appriciation.
As for location, i live in pa so i have been looking in rural pa in a 2-3 hours radius from the philly airport in all directions. Basically the land should be between Philadelphia and Pittsburg so it will be a small day trip for anyone in Pennsylvania or anyone flying in, I have big dreams for this park and want everyone to have a safe, legal place to fly, especially with the faa cracking down on drones, I think we are going to need a few parks all over the country and this can serve as a test case for that.
I dont want this gofund me to stall at any point or sit around so im setting an end date of January 31st, if for some reason we don't raise the goal by the end of January im going to refund everyone's money and maybe try against at a later point in time but i have a feeling we are going to smash to goal and build a sick fpv park for all of us to enjoy.
Even if you can't donate, you can help by sharing this video and the fpvpark.com link to your socials media and with friends. Christmas is coming up and what better gift than naming a dive gap after a loved one in the middle of the woods, right? Right?
