FPV Flyers Please Read

Hello everyone, after being down the field it has come to our attention that there is a lot of fpv going on. Please can you follow these few simple steps to stop any future problems or accidents.
1. If you intend to fly fpv please talk to any other pilots that are also flying fpv to find out what channels they are flying on.
2. Do not power up a vtx unless you know you will not clash on channels.  
3. If you intend to fly an fpv model but you are flying line of sight please turn off your vtx so it is not transmitting. You may need to add a switch or plug to your vtx power lead so you can power down your vtx if not in use.
4. Make sure you know how to change the channel on your vtx as you may have to change it down the field. If you need help with this please ask someone to show you as you should know how to use the equipment you are flying.
5. Can any members flying fpv please make sure you all fly from the same area so you can communicate with other fpv pilots no matter what flying machine you are using.
If any members have any problems following these steps do not fly and bring your issues to a committee member.
Many thanks 
Ian.
