Multi-Copter Racing

November 30, 2015 on 4:31 pm | In Uncategorized | No Comments

On Saturday, November 21, the Safety Third FPV Racing Team held a meet at the Sky Pirates field. These are tiny multicopters, only about a foot in size, which can reach speeds of 80 mph. They are piloted FPV through a video link to the pilot, who wears googles.  The race takes place close to the ground following a predetermined course with markers and obstacles.   This was a high-tech event with electronic timing, flags, and cockpit viewing for spectators.
