Pilots: Why should I create a profile and attend a MultiGP event?
MultiGP chapters welcome all pilots regardless of their skill level. You’ll notice a difference in how our events are run because we provide helpful tools and resources to our chapters. We have found this creates a fun and rewarding experience, which ultimately leads to more time for racing, greater safety and more time to socialize with your fellow pilots.
MultiGP also offers a variety of racing classes forged by FPV racers just like you. This makes them fun, competitive and delivers the adrenaline rush we know you’re searching for. Not to mention, they give you another excuse to add an additional aircraft to your fleet.
The only credential we require is an Academy of Model Aeronautics Membership (AMA) to ensure you and your fellow pilots have a mutual respect for safety. For more information on how to obtain an Academy of Model Aeronautics Membership, click HERE.
We also strongly encourage our pilots to hold a Technician-Class License, which is required from the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) to transmit the video signal from your aircraft back to your visual display on the amateur radio band and frequencies. The license is not overly difficult or expensive to obtain and you learn more about what makes our sport work. Click HERE, for more information on how to obtain a FCC Technician-Class License.
Groups: Why should my group become a MultiGP chapter?
Our local chapters are managed by passionate and enthusiastic staff that share in the excitement of our sport. We believe strongly that it is the right of each chapter to express themselves individually based off their own creativity and simply what works for them. In other words, our chapters keep their own identities and character. MultiGP assists our chapters by acting as an invaluable resource by providing them with solutions to make their events organized and fun, not time consuming and burdensome. Some of the solutions we offer are:
RaceSync – Frequency Management Software:
MultiGP has developed proprietary software that assigns racing slots and video frequencies in real time. Your pilots create a profile within MultiGP.com and then add their aircraft with their unique hardware combinations. Then, on race day, they use their smart phones and check-in when they arrive. They are assigned their race slot and optimum video frequency as to not interfere with the other pilot’s video signal. As the event director, you immediately know who is in each race and what channel they are expected to transmit on. Pilots are also informed of the other pilots who will be transmitting on the same frequency throughout the day so they can manage these transfers on their own.
MultiGP has developed racing gates that are simple to transport and setup. They are specific dimensions so your chapter can easily accommodate sponsor panels when applicable. Panels are shipped to your chapter as they become available through promotion efforts.
Racing against each other is a blast, but timing how fast your pilots are actually finishing laps is critical to competing on a larger scale and bettering their skills. Our system is installed on the start/finish gate and automatically tracks each pilots lap time through a small and lightweight sensor. Your pilots simply install the sensor to their aircraft, then all the data is streamed to your laptop where you can manage it appropriately.
Media & Creative:
Signage and creative are important to any event. As a MultiGP chapter, you get access to the MultiGP Media House where you can download creative for your all your event needs. PDF’s for spec classes, official rules and other documents are also available for download.
Racing is fun, but half the fun is building your own aircraft and testing the technology. As new products are rolled out, MultiGP provides an efficient medium to promote these products to the FPV racing community. When sponsors are involved, your chapter can benefit by receiving prizes and assets such as racing gates. These are just some of the benefits we help distribute to our chapters when sponsors get involved.
Sponsors and Vendors: What can MultiGP do for my business?
Our chapter pilots are not only enthusiastic about the activity of FPV racing itself, but the hardware and software used to stay competitive. The endless search for the latest technology to push their aircraft faster and make their virtual environments more immersive creates a win-win for your goals and our pilots. Increase your impressions by sponsoring our air gates or help launch a new product by sending our chapters a sample to try at their next meet. MultiGP’s mission is to help better the sport so if you have a product that will help do that, let us know. We’d love to help you get it in the hands of the FPV community on a grassroots level to help spread word of mouth and positive reviews.
