Drone Race, 2017 First Edition

KoptR Image is proud to organize its first FPV drone race of the year 2017

For some time, the drone race has been gaining popularity. This new sport combines skill and dexterity and requires several hours of training.

The drone drivers race their drone with FPV glasses. The FPV glasses allow them a complete immersion. It’s as if they were sitting in the cockpit of their drone. However, in the event of an accident, the pilot is safe behind a safety net and not in the drone.

The new flight location of KoptR Image is an ideal place for drone races. Concrete walls offer great security against breakage and the size of the premises allows a large area of ​​flight for the pilots. A more difficult course will be set up to increase the level of difficulty and thus have the real champions of racing drone pilot.

We have also arranged a section for spectators so they can watch the pilots maneuver their drones safely. In addition, KoptR Image will have a kiosk on site to answer all your questions about the drones, the legislation of these and on the possible trainings.


KoptR Image invites you to its very first edition of FPV drone race of the year 2017 which will take place on Saturday 8th April 2017.
