Description

Join us on the course for MultiGP IDE’s first annual drone racing event. As drone racing is seeing an unprecedented rise in popularity, IDE is bringing you The IDE Drone Racing Cup, taking place December 9-10. The IDE Drone Racing Cup is an official MultiGP event by That Drone Show.

This will be one of the only legal drone Races in LA city. Pilots will be able to race indoors from the show floor and cheer on each other as you navigate through a challenging customized state-of-the-art course with demanding obstacles! Run by Pilots for Pilots from MultiGP chapters: Bakersfield Multirotor (BMRCrazy.com), Ventura FPV Racers, and Orange County's own Drone Racing - OC.

The IDE Drone Racing Cup will be part of a two race series with SoCal MakerCon qualifier that was held on November 5th of 2016 and IDE Qualifer at the IDE event on December 9th. This event brings experienced drone racers, enthusiasts, as well as people new to the sport to enjoy drone racing at its best! See you in December at #IDE2016!

Qualifier Information Updated:

We will be abandoning the points system, sort of, so disregard the 5 points and 3 points. This is better and lets you fly more packs. It's a win, win.

As you witnessed from SoCal MakerCon Race, it's one round that truly sets your standing with laps and time. It makes each racer go faster, not crash and get as many laps in as possible at the fastest pace. Even if one round is missed or you done badly, you still can win.

So, you say, I went to SoCal MakerCon and you got into the top 30, how do I get an advantage over a Pilot that is just going to Drone Expo or did not qualify at each you ask. You get TWO extra Rounds over anyone that didn't show up to SoCal MakerCon. So you get to fly FIVE Rounds and if you did not qualify, you only get THREE qualifying rounds on Saturday.

We will have a short 2 Round IDE Qualifier on Friday afternoon. If you get in from the top 10, you get ONE extra Round on Saturday so on Saturday, you get FOUR qualifier rounds to help get you into the Mains and win the main race on Sunday.

Before and after the Two round race on Friday is open practice (as or if we have time). Friday is the only time you get to practice the track. The track will not change each day unless we see net issues.
