Major Server Upgrade
The amount of growth that we have experienced over the last 3 months has been insane. Unfortunately it took a toll on our performance and uptime. So we increased our server capacity by 300% and are working on a long term infrastructure project to make everything scalable on demand. 🤓 For us, the app needs to be more responsive so we are working on that too.

Standalone RaceTracker App - Alpha Testing
Wut! Did we bury the lead story? 😛 We heard your feedback loud and clear. You want to time races with your buddies and do it without internet. So, no more keeping my mouth shut. We have been working on a standalone Race Timing app for racers for a while. 🏁 The backstory deserves it's own email. Are you stoked about this?
This next version is gonna be way easier to use too. Message us in the app if you need help or check out this new quick setup video by Smurfy FPV.
Push Messaging for Organizers - Launching Tomorrow
Duh, we know you can't build a community without messaging. But that RaceTracker app... We need help! Where my drone racing devs at!? 🎮 🤓 💻 React, Cordova, Node... If you know what I am talking about, lets talk. If you love drones it doesn't get better.
Phew, that's enough already.
