Classic Aero-TV: Fast, Small, & Exciting - An Introduction To FPV Racing

From 2017: Drone Racing A Hit At Sebring

The Sebring Sport Aviation Expo has "Sport" prominently featured in its name, and one of the fastest-growing segments of sports, and sport aviation, is drone racing. So it would seem to make sense that steps from the Sebring Speedway, drone racing was taking place at the January air show.

Brian Morris of Team Multistar told ANN CEO and Editor in Chief Jim Campbell that there were about 110 of the fastest drone pilots competing at the show for a total prize purse of $20,000, with $10,000 going to the overall winner of the event.

The racing quadcopters fly at speeds of about 80 miles per hour, Morris said. Pilots control the aircraft using FPV goggles, so they see what a pilot sitting in the drone would see. Eight pilots compete in each heat, and "we just go crazy, and the first guy across the line wins," Morris said.

Morris said that anyone wanting to get involved in drone racing can go to MultiGP.com, and the site will direct the person to a race organization near them. From there, potential pilots can get advice on the best aircraft and other equipment for them to get started racing.

It sure does look like fun.
