FPV Drone Racing at the Maker Faire!

Posted on 16 Sep 2015

Drone Racing

First Person View Drone Racing is one of the most exciting (and, let’s face it, downright awesome) things you can do with drones, and is now considered a professional sport in many countries.

The amount of customization and tuning involved is perfectly suited to the Maker ethos, and as such we are very excited to announce that the Maker Faire Lisbon will hold a series of First Person View Drone Racing events during the weekend, at our very own Drone Racing Track!

  • On Saturday, September 19th, there are public demos scheduled for 11:00, 14:00, 16:00 and 18:00.
  • On Sunday, September 20th, we’ll hold a closed race at 11:00.

The race course will be open to the general public in between events - you can bring your own drone, but be aware that FPV Drone Racing is a very intense, competitive sport, (as you can see from the videos in this post), and that we won’t be held responsible for any crashes…

If you want to know more about FPV racing, here’s a nice beginner’s guide - and, of course, there are plenty of online forums.
