On December 27, 2015 I attended and atempted to participate in some drone racing. This was the 2nd Annual Holiday Classic of the Detroit Drones chapter of Multi GP. Everybody was friendly and helpful.
I had some difficulties with my camera which prevented me from participating this time, but have corrected the condition and am ready for the next time.
The course here was relatively easy, however I was surprised by the number that did not finish or DNFs. There were about three people who really flew well. The goal is more about finishing the race rather than being first. Each heat is a timed event at 2 minutes, and you use the groups Vtx. As you fly through the start finish gate your laps and time are automatically recorded.
