Leagues are forming across the world with one goal: to race high-flying performance quadcopters.  Skilled pilots control their vehicles through a planned course, and anyone with a headset can experience the ride like something out of science-fiction.  

Just check out some futuristic footage from the 2016 World Drone Prix in Dubai:

Luckily, you don’t have to go out of the country to join the fun!  The Louisville Drone User Group Network is a group of enthusiasts that meet regularly for flying activities and education.  

They have been covered by local news and participated in a variety of events—including a race this summer at the Kentucky Speedway!

We are fortunate to have them return to Louisville Mini Maker Faire to show off their aerial tech! 

To learn more about their community, visit their Meetup group: https://www.meetup.com/Louisville-Drone-Group/

Do you have a quadcopter or drone that you’d like to fly at Maker Faire this fall?  Sign up here!
