MultiGP News Episode 43: First Regional Qualifier Kicks Off

First Regional Qualifier

It’s a wrap! The first Regional Qualifier in the 2018 MultiGP Regional Series closed out over the weekend. Central Mississippi Drone Racers hosted the first race with  13 pilots competing over the pilots traveled from Miami FL, Memphis TN, Southaven MS, Hattiesburg MS, and other several locals joined forces to battle it out for their chance to advance to the regional finals. The weather was less than desirable. The temperature in the upper 40s most of the day. It was cloudy with misty rain at times but pilots still pushed forward. Many competing had issues with the gate in the last turn right before the timing gate. Some even crashed out near the over-under gate. The Central Mississippi Drone Racers provided the majority of the equipment, 901fpv helped with timing and brought track pieces, along with  Hattiesburgfpv. For chapter organizers the best part about the race was hanging out with everybody in the pits and just talking setups. It was great to have had pilots come all the way from Miami just to race with the chapter. Lucas “droner” dearborn took first, the great tier 1 chapter leader Alec “Lundyfpv” Lunsford was second and Elio “EMdrones” Mella took third. Congrats to those pilots.

  1. Lucas “Droner” Dearborn
  1. Maximilliano “Saber” Fernandez
  1. Dave “Makerfpv” Schlitter
