Why a drone race?

Drone racing is the new "F1" but way more awesome! We would like to introduce everyone at sha2017 to this amazing new sport.

What is FPV drone racing?

FPV drone racing is a new sport where multicopters(most of the time quadcopters) fly over a track with a speed up to 120km/h while trying to achieve the fastest times. We fly trough a FPV(first person view) perspective to achieve the best experience and performance. The track contains different obstacles wich decides if it's a fast(lipo killer) or more complicated track.

Who can participate?

Everyone! With a drone capable of flying of course ;)

Technical requirements:

  • The drone needs to be 300mm or smaller
  • 5.8Ghz video transmission capable of 25mw
  • failsafe set
