Vishal "StellaHopper" Verma

 Vishal a.k.a. stellarhopper is a budding FPV pilot who equally loves flying and racing his quads, the technology behind them, and the community around FPV racing. As a Software engineer by profession and an electrical engineer by academics, he loves the technology aspect of this sport, and strives to experiment with the bleeding edge of the sport. As an adrenaline junkie, he loves the thrill of flying and racing. Vishal bought his first racing quad in spring 2016, quickly outgrew it, and built his first custom one in only a few months, and has never looked back since then. Vishal has attended a few high profile events such as the MultiGP race at the Sebring Aviation Expo, and the Midwest Drone Battle 2017, and looks forward to rubbing shoulders (or props as the case may be) with the best pilots in the sport in future races.
