The public is invited to participate and or spectate.
Classes: beginner, intermediate, expert
Racing: Head to head drone racing from start to finish on a precision, 3-D, obstacle course, laid out side by side. The winner is the drone that crosses the finish line first after completing the course with the fewest amount of course infractions. Course in fractions are: touching an obstacle, not flying the proper course, touching the ground before the course is finished, and a pilot stepping out of the “cockpit” or space the pilot stands while flying the course. Obstacles include hoops, pylons, turns around a point, bridges, and slaloms. Each race will start with a horn and the drone running, but no movement on the starting pad. Drones moving early will forfeit the race. Drones not flying the entire course will forfeit the race. Drones will run together until the last pilot stands and is declared the champion. The course is designed for precession flying more than speed. The two identical courses will be side by side, with each side being 2,400 square feet of floor space and a vertical height of 20 feet. “Obstacle judges” will be on each course watching for infractions.
Drone types: All electric, one pilot, 4 rotors, and 12-inch span on the back rotors, from motor to motor.
Trophies: First through 3rd – Beginner, intermediate, expert classes
The museum aircraft exhibits will be open with discounted warbird rides available. Concessions, vendor areas and the museum gift shop will be open for business.
