A Night At The Race Track // With LED Drone Racing Gates


Ok, so we helped host an FPV race with our local group, and it turned out pretty great!


We helped our friends at the Tucson MultiRotor Crew to set up a race track with our LED drone racing gates, hoops and launch pads for a practice session and friendly race with the awesome Shaun Taylor32BitsofGil and the Flightone family!

We knew the course would be laid on hard surfaces, like tarmac and Sonoran desert floor, so we had to think of ways to get our FPV racing gates standing strong! With less than 24 hours to prep, it was time to pull out the PVC pipes and start building some DIY stands!

After getting all the pipes cut down to size, labeled and put with the right pipe fittings, it was now a case of moving everything to the track to start setting up!

With everything ready to go, the group came together to figure out an awesome track layout, including gravity drops and an elevated hoop up on the watchtower.

We were super stocked with the turn out of the race! As well as hanging out with some awesome people, we saw some epic flying, on-point community spirit and managed to capture some pretty cool pictures and video! All in all, we had a blast and setting up LED race tracks makes for some amazing flying sessions!
