Our team is excited to be working with Team Black sheep, one of the first companies in the first person view drone market in 2007.
The first product launching today is called the TBS RaceTracker. The wireless, internet connected device, integrated with the Drone Squad App, will allow drone racers to easily transform any location into a competitive race course with live timing.
“We are proud to partner with Drone Squad”, said Raphael “Trappy” Pirker, CEO for Team Black Sheep. “While Drone Squad is a relative newcomer, they have quickly proven to be the most innovative software company in the drone sport industry. Matching our hardware capabilities with their software expertise was the only way we could see delivering this level of innovation.”
With the emergence of Drone Racing on ESPN and online video platforms, millions of people have shown interest in this new, fast growing sport. But simply competing in drone race with friends, let alone a large group of people, has been expensive and technically complicated, limiting competition to a small amount of events. Now with the TBS Race Tracker and the Drone Squad App, friends, teams and clubs around the world can easily run world class races at their favorite flying locations -- outside or indoors.
Making this new sport accessible to everyone has always been the goal of DroneSquad. Our software has been used to manage hundreds of events in over 60 countries worldwide. With the TBS RaceTracker, we are stoked to offer the capability to manage and participate in events without any hassles.
