New Committee Member – Will Annison

by Ben Blackburn

BFPVRA Role: Event Safety and Technical Director

The BFPVRA would like to welcome Will Annison as a new addition to the committee. Will has joined us in a dual role as both technical wizard on all things drone racing including the Live Time software and also as Event Safety Officer

BFPVRA Responsibilities: keeping drone racing safe and fun, producing the safety rules to achieve that and helping clubs with the technical side of the timing and event software so they can run the best possible events.

A little bit more about Will Annison

How I see BFPVRA benefiting drone racing: Growing drone racing, enabling clubs to put on the best events they can for all pilots at all levels. More packs flown equals more happy pilots!

Favourite racing moment(s): Realising I had somehow made it to the A final and looking at the pilots I was up against thinking I have no hope here… and then not coming last in the final crossed the line in 4th best result ever such a good day!

Best memory of a crash: Doing a lot of race control means I get to see lots of crashes but one that has stood out was Jacob Blakemore trying to victory powerloop the finish gate… and ploughing into it at full tilt.

Any other drone related hobbies: whoops, wings, cars… if I can strap a camera to it and fly / drive it I’m going to do it! I also love tinkering and making stuff and FPV is an inspiration for this.
