Propwashed was started by 3 friends who started flying racing drones together. We were all surprised by how intimidating it was to get into the hobby. There are a lot of options out there, and not a lot of cohesive, up-to-date information on what to choose and how to build it. This was the original motivation behind our Drone Racing Guide.
We also like to occasionally post about events we go to, fun things we do with our miniquads and cool stuff we make or buy. The site will be updated with new content weekly. We have a Facebook page which also serves these articles. We also regularly put together awesome videos about our adventures in the hobby on our YouTube channel.
I’ve been living and breathing RC for over 10 years now. I cut my teeth with high-speed EDFs and gliders, then moved onto helicopters. I wasn’t into early multicopters until I started seeing FPV racers. The first time I flew one I was hooked. Professionally, I’m a software engineer and love tinkering around with electronics.
I’m also known by my handle “neonbjb” on most RC forums and Reddit.
If I were a Planeteer, I’d probably be Ma-Ti, or Heart. I get very excited about things and FPV Racing is no exception. From the moment I saw footage from the Drone Nationals, I knew I had to learn more. I discovered Charpu and immediately fell into fanboy status. All of this flying is far too amazing. I played more Star Wars Pod Racing than any person really should have. The scream of multicopters “punching it” reminds me of how much fun it is to go fast, but now I get to fly too? I want everyone to know how dope FPV Racing is. I am more of a dog person.
As the most recent pilot to the group, I was inspired by James and Chococopter to start learning to fly. I learned the basics with a Hubsan X4, graduated to FPV Freerider, and finally started flying around a ZMR 250 as of late. I have been flying for around six months now and have a lot to learn. I hope to share that journey with you and showcase some fun videos along the way.
