MultiGP Nationals drone racing this weekend!

MultiGP Nationals takes place this weekend, and one drone pilot will be crowned the fastest drone racing pilot in the nation.

We are huge fans of MultiGP and the work it does to facilitate drone racing at the grass roots level. With around 300 Chapters worldwide it is the largest drone racing organization in the world.

A huge number of drone pilots have competed to race in the MultiGP Nationals. Competitors took part in a series of Regional competitions in order to qualify. That means the winner is going to be crazy and consistently good!

With no invites and entry only through qualification, the MultiGP Nationals is the only performance-based drone racing championship in the USA.

“The MultiGP Regional Series and Championship is designed to seek out and award the best drone racing pilots based purely on skill,” said Chris Thomas, Founder of the MultiGP Drone Racing League. “Our extensive ecosystem of pilots, chapters, partners and sponsors gives MultiGP the resources necessary to provide a legitimate national series and championship our sport deserves.”

Some lucky drone pilots are attending this weekend having already secured their spot in the race. Automatic qualification was awarded to anyone that placed 1st at a Regional Final, and to those that took one of the 16 runner-up slots.
