Hi, guys, this is Nicole.
Do you still think that flying drones, building drones, and participating in the FPV races can only be done by men? Let me tell you about a few wonderful girls and their success stories in the drones/FPV world.
Monica – FPV_Princess
- Hey! FPV is my passion. I share my love through my videos and hope everyone likes it!
I was very impressed by Monica’s Instagram account, so checked her YouTube channel. Monica looks like a pretty refined girl, but make no mistake: FPV_Princess doesn’t only build her own FPV quads but can make any racer swallow the dust.
Monica lives in Belgium but her fame extends far beyond her backyard. She truly loves what she does and flies 365 days a year.
-I'm down to get dirty, cold, and even eaten by mosquitoes, as long as I can fly in style.
If you didn’t follow this young lady before, it’d be a good time to start it now!
Krissi Fitz - dronegirl1
I am dronegirl1994 but who don’t know dronegirl1? Krissi Fitz is from Ireland and is famous for her spectacular shots of nature, ancient castles, and more. She writes:
-Love flying DJI Phantom, Yuneec drones for aerial footage around Ireland and sharing my flight experience with you!
Judging by her social media presence, Dronegirl1 looks like a person who appreciates her audience. You would love to be a part of the community. Her messages usually start with praising her followers:
-Thanks a million, to all of you my friends - You are just an amazing and the best audience!
Since September 25, 2014, when she’d posted her first video on YouTube, her popularity exploded. Do you want to know what her secret is? Knock on her door to follow.
Sally French – TheDroneGirl.com
If the names like Sally French or Thedronegirl sound unfamiliar, then it’d be a good time to learn what a big part of the drone/FPV world they've become.
In one of the interviews, Sally describes her life:
--A southern-California native, I'm the Social Media Editor at MarketWatch. When I'm not sharing finance and markets, I'm probably chasing down stories in the drone world for my side project, TheDroneGirl.com.
Sally doesn't only keep you updated on the news from the drone’s universe, but also gives advice on how to choose a drone, how to fly it, and how to fix it if something goes wrong. Sally is always funny and friendly; she always lifts my spirits and I know she’ll lift yours.
Megan Proulx – Dronedoll
Another young lady I'd like to tell you about is Megan Proulx a.k.a. Dronedoll. I like her not only because she’s a wonderful FPV pilot, but also because she shares her passion with her boyfriend (Simon MartyFlyzzz). Simon was the one who built her very first drone, and since then both Megan and Simon have been honing their skills. I think it is great to be able to share a hobby like this. It doesn't happen very often, so they have my extra respect. Even though Megan and Simon do interviews and share videos, they aren’t looking to become popular; they just enjoy flying. If you want to know, what #LadiesLoveFPV is all about, follow this couple.
Nicole Galant – skyupdrone.com
It would only be fair to introduce myself after sharing stories of other girls. I am Nicole Gallant as DroneGirl1994. When I was little, I heard that overcoming the life challenges will promote development and success.
I like when people around smiling, and this is my success secret. – I like making people around me happy; it makes me happy; this is how I overcome challenges.
About a year ago, I became fascinated with drones. I am still far from the FPV racing. To be honest, when I first started driving my Mavic, it was not completely safe for others, but... the flights are not about how cool your drone is or how much charge does it have left. It is about time we spent with friends, like-minded people, and that unforgettable feeling of seeing the world from the other side.
