Event description

Description

1,200 Acres of FPV Paradise and 64 FPV Pilots flying at once, are we crazy?

Taking place at the same location as the 2016 MultiGP Championships, the International Open will be an FPV paradise, featuring 8 unique tracks! This will be your chance to meet, hangout, and fly with all the pilots you’ve watched on YouTube. You’ll be telling your grandkids about this one......Don’t be that pilot who missed out on the early bird special!

Event Schedule

This event is a combination of many competitions along with a funfly. Pilots will be able to fly weather permitting on all days whether or not they are competing.
