MultiGP will host and manage the FPV flight line at Joe Nall Week from May 17th-20th.  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. 

MultiGP will setup a full-scale drone racing challenge course with air gates and flags designed for fun and competition.  Throughout the day fun-fly participants will be given an opportunity to try their hand at FPV free flight above the tree line (fixed wing/multirotor) or running the challenge course below the tree line (multirotor).  The more practice the better you get!  Each day we will run a managed practice and/or qualifier for those entered into the "MultiGP Drone Racing Challenge at Joe Nall" which will be held Friday and Saturday night.  In the evening, we will also be hosting a twilight LED-lit fun fly in spirit of the Joe Nall tradition of RC Night flying.  Bring your questions and your FPV rigs and come fly with us! 

$1,200 in cash and prizes to the winners of the race, a raffle and other contests! *

* Registration for the race is an extra cost of $20; The amount of cash/prizes may vary based on participation.
