MultiGP to Host Drone Racing at Joe Nall

MultiGP Drone Racing will host and manage the FPV flight line at Joe Nall week from May 17th to the 20th. Joe Nall is one of the largest radio controlled fly-ins in the world. Joe Nall week attracts thousands of pilots to the Triple Tree Aerodrome in Woodruff, South Carolina.

“We invite the curious, the enthusiast and the seasoned RC pilots to connect with us, fly with us and compete with us. This is a great opportunity to get an intimate and up-close perspective on what makes this emerging portion of the hobby so exciting,” said Chris Thomas, Founder of MultiGP.

MultiGP will setup a drone racing challenge course with air gates and flags designed for fun and competition. Fun-fly participants will be given an opportunity to try their hand at FPV free flight above the tree line (fixed wing and multirotor) or running the challenge course below the tree line (multirotor). Each day a managed practice and/or qualifier will be run for those entered into the "MultiGP Drone Racing Challenge at Joe Nall" held Saturday afternoon. Friday night will also be an evening of twilight LED-lit fun fly in spirit of the Joe Nall tradition of RC night flying.
