2021 Global Qualifier Design Contest Now Live

Crowd-sourced track designs and the future

Over the last couple of years the community has increasingly requested that we allow community submissions for our track designs. We have been listening to your requests and are going to continue in that direction for the 2021 season. This is a great way for the community to come together to enhance the pilot experience, and by taking feedback from our pilots and organizers we hope to provide everyone with an outstanding Global Qualifier track for this year.

 

Your chance to win a Free Ticket to IO2021

The start of the season is coming up soon and to kick it off we are holding a track design contest for the Global Qualifier.  We are accepting designs from the community to be our next official GQ! So break out Velocidrone and start designing some tracks! After the submission process the community will vote on what track they like the most and the winner will receive a free ticket to IO2021.

 

Requirements

  • 10 Standard MultiGP 5×5 Gates
  • 5 Flags
  • 1 Hurdle
  • Track should fit within a 200ft x 100ft field
  • Track design should allow for easy setup using the tried and true grid method in years past
    • A grid layout will be used to map out the track so when you are placing gates in your design please ensure that you keep this in mind.
    • Example:

 

Curated by Velocidrone’s resident track design aficionado: Colby Curtola

Now, Colby Curtola of Team Velocidrone has agreed to curate the community submissions for the 2021 Global Qualifier. All designs will be reviewed by Colby and he’ll present the top 5 tracks to the community for a final vote.
