Whatzzzzup? Mac here. We've been sitting on the edge of our seats to present the first Midwest Drone Racing/ Flight Club event sponsored by Guerrilla Entertainment, LLC.
It was a great day to be a pilot and spectator for the August 30 event held in Hopkins, Buffer Park, MN.
11 FPV/LCD Pilots competed in the 2 man double elimination showdown, flying through 5 under gates and around 4 pylon turn course. No Prizes, just guts and glory.
The layout was pretty sweet too, if I say so myself.
Spectators had a chance to see the event up close too. They cheered, gasped and awed as they got to witness the first ever Midwest Drone Racing event in MN.
Pilots even shared their FPV goggles with the spectators as well, so they could get a chance to ride "shotgun" in the cockpits of the drones as they raced.
High five guys!
Pretty neat stuff for sure.
Check out the video below and see for yourself how Drone racing will be the next NASCAR of the future.
