FAI Drone Racing World Cup 2018 Fast And Furious: The Biggest Drone Racing Series On The Planet

Drone pilots at the ready! The FAI Drone Racing World Cup 2018 is coming to a city near you soon. A massive 24 World Cup contests are already registered on the FAI calendar for this third edition of the FAI Drone Racing World Cup, up from 16 last year and 9 in 2016. That makes the World Cup the biggest drone racing series around, and means lots more opportunities for both pilots and fans to enjoy the electrifying thrills of top-level drone racing.

The first event will be the 2018 Indonesia Drone Racing World Cup, taking place in Bali on April 6-8.

Prilep, in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, will be the venue for the final contest of the 2018 season, which will run on October 13-14.

As in previous years, competitors will participate in a series of races flying multi-rotor drones weighing no more than 1kg.

FAI President Frits Brink said: “The FAI is committed to supporting and promoting drone racing: one of the fastest growing air sports in the world.

“Last year’s FAI Drone Racing World Cup was already a big event, attracting more than 400 participants from a total of 37 different countries. With eight more contests on the calendar, the 2018 edition is on track to be even more successful.

“I look forward to enjoying all the action from the competition alongside drone racing fans around the world.”
