Tom-E is the only Cobra Sponsored Pilot that came highly recommended to us by all the other Cobra pilots. As one of Cobra's first multirotor motor customers, we're glad we have the pilot-favorite 'ummagawd' on board. Fairly new to the multirotor scene, he says, "it wasn't until I discovered FPV when this hobby of mine turned into an addiction". And this addiction has spawned some awesome videos and the respect of his peers.
Age: 32 years young (but he looks 23)
How long have you been in the hobby? A little over 2 years now, but was messing with RC trucks in JR high.
How did you get started in the hobby? I saw my first multirotor at Coachella in 2013. I was like, "what the heck is that?!?!?". After attending multirotors 101 (aka Google), I built my first multi (a tricopter) and flew it LOS. But it wasn't until I discovered FPV when this hobby of mine turned into an addiction.
What machines/equipment are you running? ImmersionRC Vortex and FPV gear, Cobra power setup, Fatshark Goggles and Taranis radio.
Recent competitions/fun-flys attended? SoCalRotorRacing local event in Long Beach. But excited for upcoming Drone Racing League and Drone Nationals events.
