Los Angeles Drone National Qualifier Results, June 25 2016

The Drone Squad team was stoked to power the LAFPV / FPV ACES race event in Los Angeles. It was so hot that we measured the astro-turf at 160 degrees and our judging monitors kept on resetting! But heat aside, it was a great race to watch.

Los Angeles Drone Nationals Qualifier, Hosted by LAFPV and FPV Aces. Race Management and Live Spectating by Drone Squad

The points format (one point per gate, cumulative through all rounds) and the freedom to skip a gate (not flags) introduced some really interesting race strategies. And of course, everyone got to follow the standings live in the Drone Squad app.

As announced the top 5 racers would get a bid to Drone Nationals. However, a few of those top 5 already have a bid so pilots finishing 6, 7th, etc may have a chance. Stay tuned, IDRA will be making an announcement shortly and we will post an update here.

  1. Christian "Provo" Petersen // 119 pts
