Let's See Your Indoor Race Tracks

It doesn't matter if you are a racer, a freestyler or just learning to fly. Flying in a large open room will get boring fast. Setting up a race track in your house can be cheap, simple and best of all, super fun! There are many ways to do this, even just using furniture and things you can find around the house. It's easy to add a few gates and start creating a course today. You can get as simple or as crazy as you want.

I went with a simple layout using some Tinywhoop gates, a tunnel, chairs, a coffee table and even a paper towel holder. It takes about minute to setup and teardown. You might have a space where you can make a semi-permanent course with lights and all. The Tinywhoop gates in my course are held up with either clamps, or just a few drink glasses to keep them in place. The tunnel just sets on the floor or in some chairs if you want to raise it off the ground. When setting up your course try to keep from only having left or right turns. A good mix of turns will help you grow your skills. Even if you have no plans to be a racer, playing around and going through gates is a ton of fun.

I got my tunnel from Amazon here, but some locals said they found some at a store called Gimme a 5. You can find the Tinywhoop gates here. Please share in the comments and show us your custom gates, courses and places to fly.

Here's an example of what happens when you take a race course to the extreme at the Tiny Whoop HQ:

Great looking course Jason! I've been slowly but surely working on the pieces for a course I'll be building in my basement. I've been printing these bases and will be assembling them with 3/8" tubing and LED strips to give me lit gates. I'll also be printing and putting together some flags. Hoping to have it all set up by mid month.

The tiny whoop invitational video is impressive ! I really like the tunnel at 4:33, I need the same

On my side, an example of a custom track in an office :

The environment is less fun but chairs are enough to train

Ooh I need to up my game, my favourite thing I've created so far is a freestyle rectangle from bamboo skewers.
Emax tinyhawk indoor flight ( crashing and some rolls and tunnels ) (2 min 14 sec)

But I've just realised why I crash so much, I bought a tiny whoop gate from xt-xinte along with my latest quad in bit of kit and it is more than twice the size of all the gates I've been trying to fly through lol.

I'll be making more gates when I get the chance, only bigger this time!
