Since the beginning of the 2017 MultiGP Drone Racing season, thousands of MultiGP drone racing pilots have been practicing, training, and competing as we move toward the National Championships this September in Reno. Each of the 14 Regions that make up the U.S. MultiGP League will hold one Regional Final, the pilot spots in these Regional Finals were earned at that Region’s Qualifier events earlier this year. The two top pilots from each Regional Final will automatically advance to the Fast 56 bracket of the National Championship. Pilots who place 3rd-6th in their Regional Final will receive an invitation to compete in an elimination race at the National Championships, and the top 14 will advance to the Fast 56 bracket.
“The MultiGP Regional Series is designed to provide the drone racing community an accessible yet highly competitive format that clearly recognizes the most skilled pilots in the country,” – Chris Thomas, Founder of MultiGP.
This weekend the MultiGP race chapter SELA FPVie is holding the Region 4B Finals at the New Orleans Model Aviation Club. The Regional Final is free for spectators, and the SELA FPVie encourages you to come out and see the fastest growing sport in the world firsthand. Try on a set of goggles and see what the pilots see! At this event 26 of the Region’s fastest pilots will be competing to see who will be going to the National Championships this September in Reno. These pilots have competed in multiple events during the Regional Series this year, and all have their sights set on the title of Champion. Pilots from the 3 states in Region – Louisiana, Mississippi, and Arkansas – will compete head to head in a test of their FPV drone racing skills. This is a two day event; the action begins at 8:00 AM both Saturday and Sunday morning.
